Medik8 Skincare


This has actually been one of my favourite skincare brands for years now and it is a brand that I keep on going back to.

So what is so special about Medik8? Well it is a green cosmeceutical (click Here to read what a cosmeceutical product is), meaning that it is a product that uses natural ingredients combined with lab formulation. It is also formulated to be very gentle on the skin, while still giving results with targeted problems.
It is Bio-available ingredients, Green chemistry technologies, Soap-free, No harsh detergents, SLES, SLS & Sulphate Free, Paraben Free, Environmental Group FSC Approved Packaging and are also suited for vegans and cruelty free.

Now obviously this is all Amazing for a skincare brand, but the product itself also needs to be good, otherwise there wouldn’t be a reason to buy it, but in my opinion they are certainly worth spending your money on.

I have tried a lot of the products from the brand, including:

PoreCleanse. I especially found this cleanser helpful a few years ago, when I was really battling with a very oily t-zone and large pores. I would sort of describe it as a pore eraser for your face, simply worked amazingly for me.
It is an exfoliating acid based cleanser

CreamCleanse. Now that my skin is more on the dry side, I have found that this cleanser works better for me than the PoreCleanser, as it isn’t as stripping on the skin, but still gives you a deep cleanse. Also an exfoliating acid based cleanser.

C-Tetra. This used to be one of my favourite Medik8 products, but sadly when they changed the formulation some years ago to a dry oil formulation, I found it gave me dry patches. But if you are someone that enjoy a dry oil formulation for your skin, this might be for you, as this is an amazing C Vitamin serum, that will give you a wonderful glowing complexion.

Hydr8 B5. This is a must for anyone suffering from dehydrated skin. It is the product I have had most client come back and tell me how much they loved it and I my self can’t live without this products. It is a super hydrating gel with Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic Acid, that gets soaked up by you skin in seconds, not sticky feeling and leaves it hydrated during the day.
Within just a few weeks, most people I have talked to have seen a reduction in the small dehydration lines on their face, it is that good.

Hydr8 Day 360 – Ultra. This is such a light weight moisturiser with spf 30. I actually have a bit of a sensitive skin when it comes to spf products, but this is by far one of the best spf products I have tried on my face.

Ultimate Recovery. This is an sos product for sure, it you are having a dry patchy skin or like me had a bad reaction to a product, this just soothed my skin and hydrated it at the same time to let my skin recover.

Hydr8 Body. This is some time since I tried this product, but from what I can remember, it just gives the most amazing hydration that last.
