Medik8's Balance Moisturiser and Glycolic Acid Activator is an exciting duo that works to balance the microbiome on the surface of the skin, which can be diminished by harsh cleansing and daily exposure to pollution, to effectively prevent breakouts and sensitivity. The Balance Moisturiser contains a high-performance blend of prebiotics and probiotics to rebalance the microbiome while providing all-day oil control and anti-blemish ingredients such as Niacinamide to leave the skin clear and calm. Take things up a notch by applying the Glycolic Acid Activator – an exfoliating serum formulated with 10% Glycolic Acid that instantly absorbs into the skin – before the Balance Moisturiser a couple of nights a week. This not only helps to soften and smooth uneven texture but enhances the performance of the cream, ensuring skin stays radiant and even for as long as possible.


Key Benefits

Suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin types, apply the Balance Moisturiser to clean dry skin once or twice a day. In the evening, apply 4-6 drops of the Glycolic Acid Activator to cleansed skin and allow to absorb before applying the Balance Moisturiser over the top. To be used no more than three times a week.

How to Use

Every morning and evening after cleansing, apply a small amount of the Balance Moisturiser to the face and neck.

To boost the performance of this cream, apply 4-6 drops of the Glycolic Acid Activator to cleansed skin in the evening no more than three times a week. Once the skin is dry, follow with the Balance Moisturiser.


If you are new to this product or any of its ingredients, we recommend completing a patch test first.


Products containing acids can make the skin prone to dryness and sun damage, so introduce them into your routine gradually and remember to apply a sunscreen every morning to protect against UV rays.
