Medik8 Balance Moisturiser and Glycolic Acid Activator 50ml + 5ml
97% Oil-Free Probiotic Mattifier & AHA Surface Perfector
Balance Moisturiser was previously known as Beta Moisturise™.
Balancing your microbiome is a key factor in healthy, blemish-free skin. Your skin is home to good bacteria that regulate everything from hydration to sensitivity. But when this bacteria is diminished by the likes of pollution and harsh cleansing, the skin’s natural equilibrium becomes compromised. This can lead to dry skin, irritation and blemishes. Balance Moisturiser uses a high-performance blend of prebiotics and probiotics to rebalance the skin’s microbiome, promoting a healthy, radiant complexion. The lightweight everyday moisturiser has been further enhanced with all-day oil control to decrease shine and mattify the complexion, plus beta-glucan and niacinamide to boost hydration and soothe skin back to health. Perfect for use under foundation, skin is left supple, matte and blemish-free.
What’s more, included in the box, you can supercharge the benefits of Balance Moisturiser by applying the Glycolic Acid Activator™ beforehand. This resurfacing booster gently exfoliates the upper layers of the complexion, enhancing the absorption of the moisturiser for maximum results. Just apply a few drops across the face and neck 2-3 times a week.

This daily moisturiser works with the skin’s natural mechanisms to balance the complexion and boost hydration, leaving a mattifying effect that looks flawless underneath make-up. Lightweight and silky soft, it blends easily across the skin, sinking in effortlessly to provide a matte and visibly nourished complexion. Its delicate citrusy scent is derived from natural essential oils that have been carefully selected to refresh and uplift. The Glycolic Acid Activator instantly dissolves into the skin as a perfect base for Balance Moisturiser to get to work.
How it Works
Blemishes can be caused by changes in the skin’s microbiome, the bacteria that lives on the skin’s surface. Balance Moisturiser helps to rebalance the microbiome with prebiotics which feed the good bacteria living on the surface of the skin to encourage a healthy flora. Probiotics add to the levels of live bacteria in the flora, helping to balance and restore a long-lasting clear complexion. Cinnamon extract works in synergy with the pre and probiotics to reduce levels of blemish-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes. Meanwhile, beta-Glucan enhances the skin's ability to repair itself for immediate comfort, and niacinamide soothes red, inflamed blemishes.
Glycolic Acid Activator is used to supercharge the power of Balance Moisturiser. The powerful AHA is applied before the probiotic moisturiser 2-3 times a week (or less depending on your skin's sensitivity), and works to dissolve bonds between dead skin cells so they can be gently exfoliated away. This allows Balance Moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting the freshest skin cells with its blemish-busting actives.
