Description

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.

Crystal Retinal 1 Stable Retinal Night Serum is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this retinal! I was so glad to see that SpaceNK is sticking Medik8 products! I have been this product for over a year now, started with 1 and then been moving up. I use it at night, it’s not drying and has made a big difference to my fine lines without being irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant starter retinol I’m so glad to see Medik8 at Space NK as I think it is one of the absolute best skincare companies out there. This is a great retinol if you haven’t used it before and want to start off slowly (which you should). It is very gentle, smells beautiful, is easy to apply, and you only need to use a pea sized amount so it lasts for a while. It is of really high quality and within a few weeks you will see a change in the texture of your skin - it will get smoother and more even, and minimise the look of wrinkles. Try it - you won’t look back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starter retinol This is a great retinol to get you off the starting blocks if you've never used retinol before or want a gentle retinol in between ursing stronger treatments. The quailty of ingredients is brilliant and the serum is really effective at helping fine lines and wrinkles as well as the odd spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly effective If you want your skin to look healthy and help you with your struggles such as blemishes then you might need to invest in this product. I have and I have never looked back, I use it twice a week in my pm routine. I have seen results in how my skin appears to look, reduce my blemishes and my skin appears brighter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visible results within weeks I was new to this ingredient and was experiencing acne, after trying so many other products (non retinol), and saw that they had little effect on my skin I decided to invest in this. I was a bit scared at first but I was surprised at how easy it was to use, it didn’t give me a reaction and I started off by using it twice a week, and wore and still wear spf during the day. It’s a pleasant ingredient and I am looking forward to seeing even better results.
