Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse ™
Feel refreshed and awakened with this purifying facial wash. Surface Radiance Cleanse is infused with an exfoliating blend of mandelic, lactic and salicylic acid, which have been selected for their gentle yet effective anti-ageing results. When added to water, the gel cleanser transforms into a hydrating lather with an uplifting citrus aroma. Skin is left soft to the touch, brighter and noticeably younger-looking.
A dual-action cleanser, Surface Radiance Cleanse uses both AHA and BHA power to gently break down impurities and slough off dead skin. AHAs L-mandelic acid and lactic acid, work on the upper layers of the skin to free dead skin cells so they can be easily exfoliated away. Salicylic acid, a BHA, penetrates deeper into the pores to help break down blockages which can lead to enlarged pores and blemishes. By gently exfoliating the upper layers of the skin, the skin cell renewal cycle is supercharged, leaving a fresher, clearer complexion. This also helps to soften the appearance of wrinkles, while glycerin hydrates and replenishes skin to minimise fine lines. Mangosteen peel extract provides superior antioxidant power to protect the skin from harmful free radicals, while infusing an revitalising citrus scent.
L-Mandelic Acid – A softly exfoliating AHA with BHA power, chirally correct mandelic acid is able to work both on the surface of the skin and within pores for deep but gentle exfoliation.
L-Lactic Acid – A gentle AHA that softly exfoliates the skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished complexion.
Salicylic Acid – Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, this BHA breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells that can contribute to enlarged pores and blemishes.
Glycerin - A natural humectant, glycerin traps water within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.
Mangosteen Peel Extract – Rich in natural antioxidants, mangosteen protects the skin from free radical attack which can trigger premature ageing.
How to use
Apply a small amount of cleanser into the palm of the hand and massage into moistened face and neck. Gently remove by splashing with water and pat face dry. Recommended for normal to oily skin types - use once to twice daily. For drier skin types - use up to twice a week as a treatment cleanser.
I use this every morning on my face. I love the mix of exfoliating AHA/BHA acids - a complex of mandelic, lactic and salicylic acid as well as glycerin for deep cleansing and pore refining.
