  • Key Benefits
    • Fast-Acting

      The fast-acting formula sinks effortlessly into skin to banish blemishes at their core. Fighting blemish-causing bacteria and controlling oil production within the skin.

    • Flawless Complexion

      The dual-action formula clears pores and calms inflammation to promote a flawless, healthy complexion.

    • Targeted Treatment

      Simply apply the quick-drying formula to clean skin, on its own or under make-up, to instantly target individual blemishes or problem areas.

    • Emergency Rescue

      Complete with a handbag-friendly tube, it can be used at home or on-the-go to see you through any skin emergency. Plus, it dries to create a completely clear film over the blemish, so you can use it underneath make-up to stop breakouts in their tracks.

  • How It Works

    Blemishes come in many different forms, however the basic steps to their creation are always the same. Dead skin cells mix with sebum produced by the pores to form a plug. This leaves the perfect environment for blemish bacteria (P. acnes) to thrive, which leads to red and sore inflammation. Blemish SOS targets all of these contributing elements to help promote a flawless complexion.

    1. The targeted serum uses salicylic acid to clear out pore blockages, which helps to loosen clumps of dead skin cells stuck in the pores.
    2. Dioic acid is also useful for reducing the amount of sebum our skin produces.
    3. Antibacterial azelaic acid targets blemish-causing P. acnes.
    4. Niacinamide takes down red and sore inflammation.
  • How To Use
    1. After cleansing in the morning and/or evening, use a clean finger to apply a small amount of Blemish SOS as needed.
    2. Rub in gently and allow to dry.
    3. Slight tingling is normal.
    4. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

  • Ingredients
    2% Salicylic Acid

    Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, salicylic acid breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells that can lead to blemishes.


    Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory quickly reduces redness and irritation surrounding the blemish, while regulating sebum production to prevent blocked pores.

    Azelaic Acid

    With its potent antibacterial properties, azelaic acid targets blemish-causing bacteria such as P. acnes.

    Dioic Acid

    Able to control the amount of oil produced by the pores, dioic acid helps to declog and prevent future blemishes.

At Medik8, our products containing salicylic acid were designed with blemish concerns in mind, however they are suitable for all skin types. Our maximum strength salicylic acid-infused treatment Blemish SOS™ is there ready as and when you need it.
