Experience the power of next-generation exfoliating polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) with Press & Glow; the hydrating acid toner that helps to exfoliate the surface of the complexion for a noticeable everyday glow.

Smooth & Hydrated
Skin is visibly hydrated, supple and smoothed.
The Perfect Base
Over time, Press & Glow helps to create a perfected skin surface which creates a better base for the next steps of your skincare routine and makeup.
Improves Visible Radiance
Helps to visibly brighten and even the tone of the complexion. The skin is left visibly glowing, smoothed and toned. The overall visible health of the skin is maximised.
Perfect Product Pair
Press & Glow, was designed to work in perfect harmony with vitamin A (retinol or retinal products). We recommend Crystal Retinal as Press & Glow's perfect partner, for visibly glowy, smoother, more youthful looking skin.
How It Works
Balance is key when it comes to exfoliation; overuse of powerful AHAs everyday can often lead to sensitisation of the skin and premature skin ageing due to the skin’s inability to repair itself. PHAs are made up of larger molecules than AHAs and BHAs, meaning they only exfoliate the surface of the skin. This makes PHAs the perfect match for those who want to achieve true daily exfoliation while keeping the skin barrier healthy.
PHA gluconolactone works on the skin surface to exfoliate dead skin cells, to reveal a fresher, more radiant appearance.
Gluconolactone works perfectly in partnership with vitamin A, helping to improve the visible results of the gold-standard skincare ingredient by promoting visibly smoother textured skin and hydration.
How To Use
Unlock by twisting the top half of the pump counter-clockwise until it clicks to activate.
After cleansing in the morning and evening, hold a facial pad (reusable is best) firmly over Press & Glow and push down 3-4 times.
Sweep the pad over the complexion, avoiding the delicate eye area.
Twist the pump clockwise until it clicks to secure.
For Press & Glow Refill, transfer the pump saved from your previous Press & Glow bottle onto the Press & Glow Refill.
Pump may be used on 5 Press & Glow Refills before disposal in your usual trash. Recycle the bottle and cap alongside your household recycling.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
“Polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) are a new generation of exfoliating acid. PHAs are different to traditional exfoliating acids, as they have more hydroxyl (OH) groups within their molecular structure. More OH groups make the molecule larger. They work on the skin's surface without disturbing the delicate layers that lie beneath. This ensures optimum skin exfoliation, while remaining gentle on the skin, to reveal a visibly brighter, smoother complexion. PHAs also have powerful humectant properties, meaning they draw moisture in to increase skin hydration. This ensures PHAs are gentle and soothing on the skin - without any of the drying effects that are commonly associated with acid toners.”
