Why Medik8 White Balance Works

Effective skin brightening and whitening products are difficult to find among the hundreds that are available, and you’ll soon discover that the products that do work are the ones that contain highly concentrated formulas.

Dullness, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and scarring are common skin concerns for clients at the Alive Medispa, as well as for customers that call or write to us at Alive Skin + Hair.

What is Medik8 White Balance

The Medik8 White Balance range is comprised of a serum (White Balance Click) and morning/evening moisturisers (White Balance Duo).


The key difference with Medik8 White Balance Click (The White Balance serum) is the high concentration of Kojic Acid, which works to brighten and balance skin tone whilst fading dark spots and freckles caused by UV exposure. The clever addition of Alpha-Arbutin works alongside Kojic Acid to lighten and even skin tone on pretty much any skin type.

Medik8’s innovative “click” packaging system stores Kojic Acid in the lid until it is ready to be used. Simply click the lid to release the powder (Kojic Acid) and activate the product by shaking. Medik8’s unique formula keeps the Kojic Acid stable for 30 days even after the “click”– giving you ‘bang-for-your-buck’!


The new Medik8 White Balance Duo is the latest innovation in the range, with a daytime and evening whitening and brightening moisturizer to be used in conjunction with the White Balance Click.

The White Balance Daytime Moisturiser works using a powerful and unique ingredient called Oxyresveratrol (Oxy-R). Oxy-R works to help minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone, whilst improving the appearance of sun damaged skin. Light in texture, the daytime treatment is perfect for all skin types, plus you’ll love the instant brightening benefits thanks to the light reflecting pigments.

The nighttime treatment contains Niacinamide which helps to reduce dark spots and inflammation, associated with melanin produced by your body as you sleep. A hydrating formula, the White Balance Night Moisturiser keeps skin moisturised, while working to repair skin barriers.

How do you use Medik8 White Balance?

To achieve the best results it is recommended to use both the White Balance Click and the White Balance Duo together. Simply apply 3 drops of the While Balance click directly to clean, dry skin. Blend across the face (avoiding the eye area), neck and décolletage. Leave to absorb and then apply your White Balance Duo Moisturiser.
