Medik8 Pore Cleanse Gel™ Intense
Pore Cleanse Gel Intense™ contains a blend of pore-tightening actives, as well as effective exfoliants and glycerin, to leave skin refined, hydrated and radiant. Infused with the invigorating and uplifting fusion of mint and lavender, the gel cleanser stimulates the senses, making it the perfect early-morning wake-up call. When added to water, the gel transforms into a soft lather that deeply clarifies the complexion to leave skin looking shine-free, soft and smooth.
There are many factors involved in the formation of enlarged pores. Age, excess sebum levels and sun exposure can all contribute to clogged, open pores, which are much more visible to the naked eye. Pore Cleanse Gel Intense targets enlarged pores in several ways. AHAs gently buff away the upper layers of the skin to encourage natural exfoliation and decrease the possibility of blockages. BHAs effectively breakdown any remaining impurities within the pore; leaving them clear and free from debris. Red clover extract works to reduce sebum production to stop excess oils from stretching and enlarging the pores. Unlike other pore products, which can be excessively drying, Medik8 ensures optimal hydration levels with glycerin, a natural humectant that draws water into skin to leave it supple and moisturised.
Red Clover Extract – An exceptional botanical pore minimiser, red clover extract helps reduce sebum production, enhances cellular turnover and acts as a natural astringent to minimise the appearance of pores.
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 a deep but gentle exfoliation.
L-Lactic Acid – A gentle AHA that softly exfoliates the upper layers of skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished and cared for complexion.
Salicylic Acid – Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, this BHA breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells that can lead to blemishes and blocked pores.
Glycerin – A natural humectant, glycerin traps water within the skin to leave it soft and supple.
How to use
Every morning and evening, 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. Follow with your favourite Medik8 serum and moisturiser.
Love this in the AM to cleanse my skin with a fantastic acid lineup. In the PM i would use it as the second part of my double cleanse. Some people won't be able to use this every day or twice a day.
