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.

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.

It’s just good product

It is a solid product that I could not recommend more. I have used it religiously for last month, every evening and my skin started looking younger, firmer and more youthful. I’m 42. I have ( or shall I say “had”) pigmentations problems, a bit of wrinkle and generally 40 years old skin. This product helps. My skin is very smooth, visibly plumped and firmer, and pigmentation is fading out.

Excellent entry level retinol

Medik8 Crystal Retinal 1 is the entry level product in the range. I have previously used gentle retinol products like Luna and I have very sensitive skin. Having not used retinal before I introduced this slowly again into my routine. As my skin is so sensitive I normally only use a retinol at most twice a week and started using this once a week. The retinal is a pale yellow lotion it is stronger and a little more drying on my skin but using a good rich moisturiser on top easily prevented any dryness. In terms of results its very effective my skin is much smoother, pores minimised and fines lines less noticeable. I have been using this for months now and 1-2 times a week is still enough for my skin with no irritation at all, once I apply a hydrating layer on top. I have been very impressed with all the Medik8 products I have tried and this is no exception.

Non irritating. Perfect place to start with vitamin A

I've used a few different vitamin a/retinol products and it's a real fine line not overdoing it. I can't buy into the philosophy that your skin needs to peel and will be sore etc. It doesn't make sense to me to treat your skin so harshly. I wouldn't purposefully get sunburnt/windburnt and that's what it has felt like for me. This retinal is great - no irritation and I have dry sensitive skin. I'm using this every other night as I have other skincare I use but my skin feels great in the morning and I will likely purchase the retinal 3 when this runs out to see how that one goes. I really like that you can step up or down the potency.

Best Use: Fine Lines, Uneven Skin Texture

Quick results

I have never had such quick results from a skincare brand until now. I had no adverse reaction to this night serum except for a little dryness in the first week I was able to use this every night and see a difference in the texture of my skin . I do have sensitive skin but have no problem with this product.
