Medik8 White Balance Cleanse

The Medik8 White Balance Cleanse, doubled as a cleanser and micro-exfoliator, is designed to give skin that deep cleanse for brighter, refined and smoother skin finish.

Infused with potent key active ingredients (Oxy-R – Oxyresveratrol) and combined with micro-fine bamboo particles and volcanic perlite, this cleanser saves you time from having to do both cleansing and exfoliating steps.

What I like about it:

  • Unique powder texture that transforms into light foam when water is added to it
  • The flexibility to adapt the amount of powder to suit a daily gentle exfoliation or weekly deeper exfoliation
  • Appearance of pigmentation is reduced, balance out uneven skin tone and reduce blotchiness from dryness around skin
  • Overtime, with consistent use of this cleanser, it helps to inhibite tyrosinase activity and the production of melanin to prevent premature ageing
  • Suitable for all skin types and even those with pigmentation and sun damaged skin

Just add a level teaspoon amount of powder onto palm and mix with a few drops of warm water and rub hands together to activate powder to create a creamy texture and cleanse away. Perfect for face, neck and decolleté.

The only downside is that this cleanser is probably not suited to be use in shower as dry hands are required to handle and to mix with this cleanser.

Otherwise, if you want baby smooth and refined skin, this cleanser delivers just that!

Medik8 Clay Mask Pore Refining Mask


As teenagers we were obsessed with our pores: cleanse, exfoliate with something that will clog the sink, tone, moisturise.  This was the acceptable face, if you will, of face care. Then somebody threw a mask into the mix. Put a whole bunch of strange looking stuff on your face, cover your eyes with cucumber slices and – hey presto – when you wash it off, your face looks better, because it doesn’t have strange looking gloop and cucumbers on it. Well, that was then.

Now ensconced in middle age, my pores are not only refined but have been to finishing school and have acquired the gentle grey pallor of pores that have seen better days. So I like the idea of a mask, not only to recapture my lost youth but also to my me looked slightly flushed and post coital.

This one Clay Mask Pore Refining Mask by Medik8 contains Bentonite and Kaolin; one I know is a clay people ingest in punishing detox regimes in Phuket the other a component of an old popular diarrhoea remedy. Combined with Cranberry fruit extract and Vitamin E, it goes on smoothly, smells lovely and citrusy and leaves a lovely, slightly crusty mask that if nothing else, will alarm your parcel delivery man with hilarious results.

When washed off, the skin is indeed, more luminous, dewy, and refreshed.  I am a fan. It’s puckered up this dead-eyed city-sick face with a fresh, milk-maid allure. So much so that I am willing to brave the  world without my usual war paint. If you are going for the natural look, and want to smell lovely and clean all day, use this.
