|Medik8 Press & Glow Refill gently exfoliates dead skin cells to boost skin radiance and refine skin texture.|
This toner uses a new generation ingredient to refine the skin without the irritation more commonly associated with deeper penetrating skin acids such as Glycolic Acid.
This is a non-astringent formula that doesn’t leave the skin feeling sensitive and taut.
It’s infused with Prickly Pear to support the skin’s natural turnover and Aloe Vera to comfort, soothe and hydrate.
Now you can eliminate dull, tired and uneven-looking skin without risking over-exfoliation or discomfort.
Why Medik8 Press & Glow Refill?
Medik8 Press & Glow Refill allows you to experience exfoliation without the sting, burn or dryness caused by other exfoliating toners, even if you have sensitive skin.
This hydrating toner uses Gluconolactone, a Polyhydroxy Acid, to smooth and enhance the complexion. Now you can get your natural glow back the gentle way.
Exfoliating the skin not only gives skin more radiance, it actually allows serums and treatment products to absorb better so they can do their good work. It also allows foundation to apply more smoothly and evenly so that you don’t see patches of dryness and roughness.
Now you can have all of the oomph of an exfoliating acid without any of the ouch.
The Refill bottle allows you to reuse the pump dispenser from your original Medik8 Press & Glow those reducing waste that would otherwise go to landfill and saving you money.
Medik8 Press & Glow Refill ingredients
Gluconolactone (5.5%) does more than just remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It is an antioxidant in its own right and helps repair an impaired skin barrier, improves hydration, increases skin thickness and reduces the look of wrinkles. Interestingly, it has antioxidant powers that are comparable to the more famous Vitamin C.
While similar in chemical structure to AHAs, it has a larger molecular size and therefore penetrates less deeply. This may explain why people find it gentler on the skin.
Prickly Pear is a natural enzyme activator. It further increases the rate of cell renewal and improves clarity. It’s rich in antioxidant compounds known as polyphenols which neutralise the effects of airborne pollutants and calm sensitive skin. Prickly Pear is also great source of fatty acids and amino acids which replenish those naturally present in the skin.
Aloe Vera reduces irritation and enhances skin hydration. It also imparts a lovely refreshing and cooling sensation when used in formulations.
Acai Fruit is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals and supports the repair process. This helps the skin defend itself against premature wrinkles and pigmentation. It naturally contains high levels of Vitamin C, which has anti-inflammatory, hydrating and pigment-inhibiting benefits too.
Suits all skin types, except rosacea.
This toner is especially helpful for anyone who prefers a gentler exfoliant or find other types of exfoliants irritating.
