Medik8 Crystal Retinal 1 Serum 30ml

Discover a younger-looking complexion with Crystal Retinal 1.

Featuring retinaldehyde (retinal), a next-generation form of vitamin A which is not to be mistaken for the classic form of vitamin A, retinol. In numerous studies, retinal has been demonstrated to be more effective and 11x faster-working than retinol, without any additional irritation.[1,2,3]

The hydrating overnight serum-cream visibly addresses signs of aging; improving the aappearance of wrinkles, texture and tone. Potency and optimum power is ensured through a double-layered stabilization system, which includes a crystal encapsulation that releases vitamin A gradually throughout the night, to protect the skin from becoming overwhelmed at any point. Hyaluronic acid and glycerin also feature to moisturize and hydrate skin, minimizing any dryness. The complexion is left visibly smooth and supple. Crystal Retinal is available in a series of progressive strengths. Crystal Retinal 1 (0.01% retinal) is the perfect starting point for sensitive skins before moving up to Crystal Retinal 3. Medik8 recommend a simple, effective skincare strategy of using vitamin C and sunscreen in the morning and vitamin A at night.

This strategy is called: CSA.

Happy first time retinol user

Did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on this product. Have super sensitive skin so have been cautious about starting a retinol. Am very pleased with product — absolutely no drying or negative side effects. My skin has always been good but recently have been battling some issues and I do feel that my skin tone especially has improved since starting to use. Will amp it up with the retinol 3 next.

Loving this product

It is so easy it is to get started with this retinal. Started noticing changes to my skin soon after using this. Can’t wait to slowly progress with this range of products.
