I have tried everything for removing blackheads and nothing seems to work for me. After reading an article about these, I purchased them with high expectations. My expectations were met! Within a few days of using these, my blackheads were clearing up. They do tend to really dry out your skin though, so I try only using them where I have blackheads, and on alternate evenings.

WorksThis product is good for oily and acne prone skin. It helps me to clear out my acne on my chin. Very convenient as well. Highly recommend
One of my favourites!I’m now onto my second one of these and I love them! I’ve used other salicylic acid products but these have worked the best for me so far. Very convenient and easy to use, would recommend to anyone with oily skin and breakouts!
Great for acneThese were recommended to me by a friend and I was skeptical considering the price, but they're amazing. I have stubborn acne on my chin and they really help clear breakouts and remove excess oil. Staple in my skincare routine now.

My boyfriend steals these!These are great to get a bit of extra grime off your face. With regular use I did notice blackheads going away. My boyfriend also loves them, they're a regular in our bathroom!
Smooth skinBought this product after reading an Adorebeauty blog about removing blackheads. This is now a staple in my routine. I have deep blackheads and I use these pads after using pore strips to enhance the black head cleaning process. Noticed that my blackheads clear up a lot more!
Can’t forego this product!Was recommended to try these pads by my skin therapist- I was sceptical but I can’t live without them now! It doesn’t feel right to not do this step, I feel my pores tighten and have noticed a significant reduction in black heads, I also notice my skin is less oily throughout the day.
Great for congestionFound this to work on super stubborn acne on the centre of my forehead. I was using it in conjunction with a lot of other products but do believe this had a huge impact!
Amazing for those extra oily daysThis Product is great to control those days where you get a little bit extra oil around the face.
I find if I'm playing my normal weekly sports and going to the gym I have days where my oiliness is out of control, That's where these pads come in handy. Sometimes even if I finish at the gym and have to go somewhere afterwards I pack them in my gym bag and use them straight after and I look fresh, Would use any other pads after using these.
Excellent blackhead removerI have been using this product daily for over a week and straight I noticed by blackheads being drawn out, something which I have been battling with.
Functional but overpricedThese 2% salicylic acid are fine - they do the job. Skin looks noticeably smoother and clearer after a few days of use. I like how the pads are pre-soaked instead of having to use a serum and rub it in - super convenient. However, I believe these are incredibly overpriced for what they are, and cheaper options are definitely available.
Pleasantly surprised!I don't have a lot of joy with products for my very oily, highly reactive, breakout-prone, all round pain in the butt skin... I've tried a Medik8 cleanser (which I'm okay with and still using) and a moisturiser (not blown away, still looking for something more effective to mattify) and their Hydra8 serum (meh - actually makes me oilier I think) but this one is a definite winner! These pads have dealt with the few stubborn blackheads/rough texture around the sides of my nose and made a noticeable difference to my skin overall, even my problematic chin. To say I'm rapt would be an understatement. I'll for sure be buying these again!
Great for congestionHelps congested skin ALOT. I used to have lots of bumps but with a mix of different skin care products (this included) they’ve gone away. This definitely helps a lot. Also black heads are gone now too!
Helps overall skin appearanceI love how quick and easy these pads are to use. My skin is reasonably clear but often congested and with blackheads. I try and use every second night and while I have seen a small improvement in congestion I can’t say that it has completely cleared my blackheads and problem areas. Possibly more regular use could help with better results.
Love these wipes!These are a total game-changer! Hygenic, easy to use and smell great! And they clear the skin, including pesky blackheads, without over-drying. Yes, they are expensive but once you try, you’ll see why they are worth it!
dream come trueThis product is so amazing. So easy to use and has truely made a difference to my skin. I haven’t had a breakout in ages unlike before where it was at least every other day and my blackheads are even clearing. I really do love this product and it has quickly started an obsession with the whole brand.
wonderful resultsI have combination skin and struggle with blackheads and breakouts on my nose and chin.
Medik8 Blemish Control Pads have made a massive difference to my skin. I'm over the moon with the results.
My breakouts and blackheads have significantly decreased and overall my skin looks better. So glad I started using these pads.
They don't irritate my sensitive skin and are quick and easy to use.
Fantastic product, highly recommend!
AmazingThe only bad thing about these is the cost, but I literally felt them working on my breakout as soon as I started useing them.
Promising results with continued useI love how easy these are for travel without having to worry about bottles spilling. I have had good results with continued use however if I forget to use them for a day or two it is noticeable. Being a more costly product, using them twice a day as recommended to achieve results is a bit out of my depth and I’m not sure if I will repurchase due to the cost.
greathelps with my black heads
Favourite product ever!I’m so grateful I stumbled across these!
They are life changing!
I’ve intergrated these into my normal skincare routine and my skin is amazing! It’s an extra level of exfoliation and cleansing that my skin desperately needs due to the climate and environment where I live.
They’re also great for travelling, camping or overnight adventures as they’re easy to just grab out and use. Could not recommend highly enough! Everyone needs these.
Helpful in controlling oilI have dry sensitive skin but can get an oily t-zone particularly in summer, and I find that these wipes have helped to control this oil. I don't use them every day as I do feel they're a bit expensive but they seem quite good so far.
Got rid of my break out within days!All I can say is thank gosh I purchased these after a recommendation from my facial. I experienced a horrible breakout around my chin and jaw error from another product which was taking ages to subside. Within days of using these pads my breakout has diminished significantly, even so that a lady at Mecca commented on my skin. The pads did not dry out my skin. A life saver!
Can’t live without them!My skin type is on the dry side of normal and I suffer from some hormonal acne around my chin and jaw area that just never seems to completely disappear. I use these pads which I use morning and night and I really noticed how effective they are when I ran out of my first tub and spent a few weeks without using them. My skin then became so bad and my pimples came back with avengance and wouldn’t go away! I have since repurchased and had those nasty pimples under control within 48hrs! Don’t think I could live without this product now
Great for sensitive oily skinThis product is great for my oily skin, it clears my pores and doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry. It's so smooth and definitely a new favourite.
Great product for white heads!My skin is usually a bit on the oily side, and every now and then I get a pimple or two - but I recently started getting lots of white heads around and on my nose, around my lips and on my chin.
I have tried a number of products and nothing seems to diminish them, until I gave this product a whirl. I use the wipes once in the morning, and again before bed and have seen a significant improvement in the appearance of white heads. And this is after 5 days of using the product!
I would definitely recommend this product for white heads and black heads - I'm not sure how well it works in terms of pimples but it seems to be preventing them at the moment.
WinnerI struggled with some sore shoulder/back acne and couldn’t get it to budge until I tried these pads.
So gentle yet extremely affective and versatile - my back has almost completely cleared up!
A gods send!
Bye blackheads!I haven't looked in the mirror to see my nose free of blackheads since I was in primary school... I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of them, so I am so happy to have found this product because it's been the only thing to work!
I started by using it morning and night on my T-zone for about a week, and I couldn't believe how clear my face was. I now just use it once or twice a week just on my nose. My skin did become a little irritated at one point, so I needed to take a break from the product. Since then I haven't had any problems.
I can't recommend this product enough to anyone like me who has struggled with stubborn blackheads.
Amazing resultsI'm in my mid forties and only recently began developing large cystic pimples on my jaw line and neck. Utter despair. After reading the reviews of this product and loving the Medik8 brand, I thought I would give this a try. Only 3 days in, but the results are amazing - the cystic lumps are far less painful and drying up.I'm hoping with continued use it will also mean new ones won't appear.
Only 5 days in, but its official. Love Love Love!I have combination skin, an oilyish T-zone, dry cheeks and lips, and some hormonal acne under my chin. My skin is generally good, but I have long ago accepted enlarged pores on my nose, blackheads and an undereye area best hidden by thick rimmed glasses.
But already 5 days in, and my skin looks fresher, the skin under my eyes looks smoother and everything feels more polished.
I am a happy convert, anything this simple to use (swipe pad over face, let it dry) is always a win in my cabinet!
Helped my skin so much!After surviving my teenage years and early 20's with mostly clean (occasionally dry) skin, I really struggled when I developed adult acne, combined with dry skin. For three years I have been dealing with lots of hard sebum blockages that stick around for months, at least one blind pimple at a time and generally bumpy, clogged skin. I have tried all natural products, oil cleansing and clarisonic brush cleansing, all to no avail. I did have some luck improving the hard sebum blockages when I incorporated an omega oil and happy hormone powder into my diet, but still had clogged skin and painful, deep pimples. Since using the blemish control pads for 5 weeks I have not had one blind pimple. My skin has also generally become less clogged. I still have a few deep blockages that are slowly making their way out of my skin (from before), and I get the occasional tiny white head, but it does not become large and inflamed and it is easy to deal with. I was skeptical to buy the pads (because nothing else worked), but now I am finally starting to feel confident in my skin again. Definitely recommend, but probably don't use them every day if you have sensitive skin.
Helps blackheadsHaving sensitive skin prone to redness I am always on the look out for exfoliating treatments which don't have alcohol - particularly denatured! - in them. Was hopeful with these - they definitely helped slough away yukky skin and diminish blackheads (my chief concern). However, they did aggravate my redness a bit, so I'll keep searching.
Waste of money, made no difference to my skinI found these dried me out & did not have any impact on any blemishes. I tried them in a desperate attempt to help control my hormonal acne (brought on by my implanon implant) & they did nothing.
I have normal-dry skin.
First aid for skinThese little pads are a lifesaver when my skin is flaring up due to hormones. I swipe over face/neck/chest morning and night and any pesky breakouts are seriously minimised.
GreatThese are great! Perfect for when my skin is going crazy snd really helps to settle it back down.
Great for spots!These are my go to for when I have a breakout. They visibly improve within a day and disappear. Highly recommend
Skin noticeably betterI have very sensitive skin, prone to breakouts, especially in my back. I’ve been using this pads for about 2 weeks and my skin looks cleaner and less oily. Definitely recommend it for back acne, haven’t used it on the face so wouldn’t know.
Saved my skin!After using the online chat to speak with the adore team about my skin, they directed me to this product as I was suffering breakouts since starting to work out and getting pimples in my 30’s was a rude shock. I’ve just finished my first tub and ordered another, it has completely changed my skin. It’s reduced the amount of pimples significantly to the point I don’t even really have any anymore and even if I do get one come up, it’s like it’s already on its last legs and will be gone in a day, no angry pimples anymore. It also reduced the under skin bumps I had and my pores have also benefited hugely! They are smaller in appearance (maybe cause they’re so clean after these wipes!) although a little pricey, totally worth it to feel confident again. Thanks for the suggestion adore team.
holy grailthis really works! I have really bad acne and scarring on my jawline and forehead and these pads twice a day are a life saver. They dry all the oils and spots flaring up so quickly and i have noticed some of my scarring going down. holy grail life saver
HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTI just want to start by saying that I have told everyone about this product I’m actually obsessed. It is the first product I have ever come across that actually works. I have pretty bad hormonal acne and scarring and these pads twice a day are the best thing that has ever happened to my skin care routine. They dry everything up so quickly and I have even noticed some of my scarring going down and less colour under the skin. I am onto my 3rd tub and I don’t think I’ll ever stop using them! Couldn’t recommend this product more!!
Life changerI have hormonal chin acne brought about by the IUD (better spotty than pregnant I guess!).
Prior to discovering medik8 it was inflammed and cystic around my chin.
The blemish control pads are wonderful for keeping the acne at bay with salicylic acid, and without drying alcohol. This also remedies smaller blemishes within a day. My skin has never been better. Thank you medik8 and Adore beauty!
Not greatI must have tried every exfoliating AHA or BHA pad on the market. These are OK, but I used them before I realise they had a mint oil in it (which, as I am allergic), resulted in some spectacular rashes and bumps on my face. I don't understand why you would add something like that to a blemish pad, but oh well.
The other issue is the salicylic acid. It was my understanding that for salicylic acid to work on dissolving sebum etc. and clean out pores, it needs to remain in contact with the skin for a while (e.g. in a gel or other base that you apply to the face). As using these involves just a quick swipe of the skin with the pad, I'm not sure how effective the BHA is going to be. Some people love these pads, however, so perhaps I'm the lone ranger here...
Great productAmazing product, truly helps with blemishes and breakouts. It will dry your skin after use, so good a good moisturiser.
AMAZING PRODUCT!I have noticed a significant change for the better in my skin since introducing these into my skincare routine. I have extremely congested skin especially around my jawline and after a week I could notice an improvement in my skin. I am seeing less congestion, and the spots I do get have been smaller and healing much quicker. I absolutely love medik8, all their products are incredible, full of active skin ingredients that actually work. These pads can be a tad drying on the skin initially, but with a good moisturiser, this wasn’t an issue for me. Highly recommend!
Convenient and effective!When I first used these I didn't notice much, but after a few days of adding it into my skin care routine I've noticed my skin appear smoother and clearer!
They are thin pads pre soaked, one side bumpy for exfoliating and the other side smooth, they have the perfect amount of product and they don't drip everywhere like other pre soaked pads.
I've been using the bumpy side quite vigourously and noticed that it removes dead skin cells extremely well, I use the smooth side after I've used the bumpy side and I absolutely love it!
I have also started using it to remove makeup (on the rare occasion that I wear it) and it removes better than any face wipe I've used, ever!
Loved these!I bought these 4 weeks ago, and have used them twice a day for this time. I have noticed significantly clearer skin, without it drying out.
Getting the frequency right is key :)Since quitting the contraceptive pill three years ago, my skin has been marred by continuous blemishes; some small that clear away quickly, and others that rise into big red bumps that hang around for a month. So on receiving Medik8 Blemish Control Pads, I was excited to see what would happen.
The instructions state to use twice a day for best results. So, for four days I swiped these little miracle face pads over my face, and watched my skin begin to clear and become luminous. This was amazing, and such a relief for me to see clear skin after being quite spotty these past few years.
However, on the evening of day four I noticed that my skin was incredibly tight, so I added a little extra moisturiser that night. The next day, my whole face was peeling. So all-in-all, day and night application proved to be too drying for my skin.
After waiting a week for my skin to settle down, I have begun to use the pads at night every third day, and so far the results are great!
I would highly recommend these pads for those who experience continuous spots, but getting the frequency of application right seems to be the key.
I am in love with these clear skin results!
