Today I’d like to share with you some newly launched products from the brand Medik8, one of my favourite cosmeceutical brands. The product, White Balance Duo contains 2 products that have been designed to target visible signs of UV induced pigmentation including dark spots, age spots, freckles, blotchiness, sun damage, uneven skin tone and melasma, and to prevent ongoing damage.

The first product is a brightening cream to use during the day, and the second one a cream for night-time use. These two products work together to target long lasting visible pigmentation and brightening benefits to the skin, all while also offering moisture and anti-ageing benefits to the skin.

The day cream has added sunscreen to protect your skin for further sun damage. It feels light on the skin, so also perfect for my combination skin. It quickly absorbs and makes the skin feel soft, and dewy as well as instantly more even and bright, thanks to the included light reflective pigments.

The White Balance Day Cream contains among others;
  • Oxy-R (Oxyresveratrol) , skin brightening agent which inhibits melanin production.  
  • Reflective Pigments - for instant brightening and a more even skin tone upon application 
  • Vitamin C: antioxidant, which has anti-inflammatory qualities and neutralises free radicals and protects the skin against UV-induced pigmentation.
  • Niacinamide: vitamin B3 improves skin moisturisation, and acts as an antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory action, and skin brightening properties.
  • Moisturise MagnetsTM - a trademarked combination of saccharide isomerate and isosorbide dicaprylate to drawn in and retain moisture in the skin. 

The night-time cream is slightly thicker and more moisturising, yet still doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. It as most night creams, and it also works on brightening and evening the skin tone. Like the day cream, the night cream also contains Oxy-R (Oxyresveratrol), an skin brightening agent which inhibits melanin production. In addition, the night cream also contains niacinamide to help reduce dark spots and inflammation while improving the overall appearance of skin.

White Balance Night contains among others;

  • Oxy-R (Oxyresveratrol), a skin brightening agent which inhibits melanin production. 
  • Gluconolactone - a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) which increases cell turnover to help blend away stubborn pigmentation areas overnight. Also acts as a humectant drawing moisture into the skin. 
  • Liquorice & Mulberry Extract: Natural and powerful skin brightening extracts. Also provides antioxidant and antiseptic benefits to the skin.
  • Vitamin E: antioxidant, reduces UV-induced discolouration and has anti-ageing benefits.
  • Niacinamide: vitamin B3 improves skin moisturisation, acts as an antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory action, and skin brightening properties.

Years of sun worshipping and two pregnancies and my skin is sadly a lot more pigmented and blotchy than I like it to be, and consequently I rarely leave the house without wearing foundation. But after using this duo for a month or so, I am very pleased to say that I have noticed that my skin is a lot more even and brighter. Areas of pigmentation have definitely evened out, and my complexion is simply brighter and more glowing. So if you too are concerned with pigmentation and uneven skin tone, then I definitely recommend that you give these products a go!
