Key Benefits

Pore Control Power
A powerful complex of AHAs and BHAs intensifies the cleanser’s pore-refining power, decongesting the build up of impurities within the skin pores, helping to minimise the look of enlarged pores.


Smoothing & Brightening
Exfoliating acids provide instant surface exfoliation, resulting in a visibly smoother, brighter and more youthful-looking complexion.


Oil Control
Pore Cleanse Gel Intense helps to reduce the appearance of unwanted shine on oily skins.


Transformative Gel
When massaged into damp skin, the gel formula transforms into a hydrating, glycerin-infused lather, releasing an uplifting scent for a refreshing cleansing experience.


Perfect Product Pair
Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil and Pore Cleanse Gel Intense make for the perfect double cleanse partners to ensure you get the most effective sunscreen and makeup removal in the evening.

How It Works

There are many factors involved in the formation of enlarged pores. Age, excess sebum levels and sun exposure can all contribute to clogged, open pores, which are much more visible to the naked eye. Pore Cleanse Gel Intense takes a multi-angle approach to reducing the appearance of pores, oiliness and uneven skin texture.


AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) L-mandelic acid and lactic acid gently exfoliate the upper layers of the skin to encourage natural exfoliation and decrease the possibility of pore blockages.


BHA (beta hydroxy acid) salicylic acid effectively breaks down any remaining impurities from within the pore; leaving them clear and free from debris.


Red clover extract helps to reduce sebum production to stop excess oils from stretching and enlarging the pores.


Unlike other pore products, which can be excessively drying, Medik8 ensures optimal hydration levels with glycerin, a natural humectant that draws water into skin to leave it feeling supple and moisturised.

How To Use

Every morning and evening, apply Pore Cleanse Gel Intense into the palm of the hand and massage into moistened face and neck.


For sensitive or dry skin, use up to once a day or whenever a deeper cleanse is required.


Gently remove by splashing with water and pat face dry.


Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.


?L-Mandelic Acid

A softly exfoliating AHA with BHA power, mandelic acid is able to work both on the surface of the skin and within pores for deep but gentle exfoliation.


?L-Lactic Acid

A gentle AHA that softly exfoliates the skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished complexion.


Salicylic Acid

Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, this BHA breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells that can contribute to enlarged pores and blemishes.


Red Clover Extract

An exceptional botanical pore minimiser, red clover extract helps to reduce sebum production, enhance cellular turnover and acts as a natural astringent to minimise the appearance of pores.



A natural humectant, glycerin traps water within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.
