Vitamin A taken to new age-defying heights. Crystal Retinal™ is a cult advanced anti-ageing serum crafted with stabilised retinaldehyde (retinal), a next-generation form of vitamin A. Not to be confused with classic form """"retinol"""", retinaldehyde has been desmonstrated in multiple scientific studies to harness improved efficacy compared to retinol, but without any added irritation.

Delivering results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A, retinal is proven to work up to 11 times faster than retinol. Stabilised using patented crystal encapsulation and a patent pending carrot seed complex, this results-focussed overnight serum visibly minimises fine lines and wrinkles; helping to resurface skin texture and create an overall youthful complexion. The vitamin A is released gradually into the skin throughout the night, for minimal irritation.

Featuring hyaluronic acid and glycerin to draw moisture to every level of the skin, infusing skin with hydration and leaving it visibly supple.

Not only designed to target signs of ageing, Crystal Retinal helps to reduce blemish-causing bacteria, visibly improving skin clarity.

Medik8 offer progressive concentrations of Crystal Retinal products which form the Medik8 Crystal Retinal Ladder. Crystal Retinal 1, containing 0.01% retinaldehyde, is recommended as a starting point for those with more sensitive skin before moving to Crystal Retinal 3.

Medik8 recommend a simple, highly effective anti-ageing strategy of using vitamin C and sunscreen in the morning and vitamin A at night. This strategy is called: CSA.

Immediate results

I have skin that is prone to sensitivity with mild eczema so I am always nervous to try anything too harsh or with retinol in - having read and listened to many many rave reviews and comments I decided to tentatively give this serum ago - well I can say I am so glad I did - I saw an immediate improvement in my skins appearance and texture - smooth and even - in the morning I noticed the same with no sensitivity or problems whatsoever - I have continued using and moving onto the level 3 soon.

Fantastic

I have tried many different brands of retinol and havent really understood the benefits but this is fantastic stuff. It is retinal not retinOL so it works much faster and the results are clear to see. I have followed the instructions on the tube (using a couple of times a week followed by every other night) to ease my skin into it. I did get some spots at first but now I am on week four and my skin has never looked better

Best Use: Anti-Pollution, Fine Lines, Hyperpigmentation, Visible Pores, Brightening

I LOVE. LOVE This

I have only very recently got into using retinols. I have had some bad reactions. However, I decided to persist and I'm so pleased that I did. I absolutely love the Medik8 Crystal Retinal 1 Stable Retinal Night Serum. It has the most gorgeous fragrance and is a real pleasure to use. I've had no adverse reactions, just wonderful glowing skin.

Best Use: Hydration, Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Uneven Skin Texture, Brightening, Anti-Aging

Fantastic product!

Fantastic product. Bought alongside the night-time moisturizer and after going through the build up period, I noticed a big difference in the condition of my skin. Skin looks considerably brighter and tighter, and none of the flakiness that I have heard you get with a retinol produce (yes, I am a first timer to Retinol at the ripe old age of 51!) This really is a brilliant buy and well worth what I consider to be a reasonable price for such a great product. Very highly recommended!

Best Use: Hydration, Loss of Firmness, Fine Lines, Brightening

First time...will buy again

This is my first time using a Retinal so started off slowly with the '1'. I followed the instructions, introducing slowly as I didn't know how my skin would react. I also used this with the Medik8 Vitamin A night cream. Glad to say my skin was fine and have noticed a slight difference. I'd use again but increase the strength to a 3.

Best Use: Uneven Skin Tone, Loss of Firmness, Hyperpigmentation, Anti-Aging
