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.

I really like this

I have been using the Medik8 Crystal Retinal eye cream for only a few months and I've already seen amazing results. My dark circles are lighter, my eyes are brighter, and I used to have really bad puffy eyes in the morning that are now gone. This is a really great product!

Gentle

So I was terrified of starting retinoids but due to the side effects a lot of people report during the beginning stages (dry sensitive skin etc.). I have had no irritation with this product, I think it's very gentle for my dry skin. So far, I can't see any difference but my skin has been quite good already so I guess this is about maintaining it. If you want to see effects, I think it's better to start with the 3 strength, but if you want to be cautious and start slow, this is the product for you!

Giving results!

I started using it hardly a month back and use it only 2 times a week but have noticed a massive difference in my skin texture and fine lines, it is very gentle on the skin and as a person who has a reaction to almost everything, this seems to be working very well with my skin and other skincare products. using it in a skin cycling routine and have been very impressed, will share more after a few months.

Best Use: Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Uneven Skin Texture, Firming, Anti-Aging

Good

I have very sensitive skin which can react to sunscreens and is quite reactive. I was nervous to try retinol but this number 1 has been amazing. No reaction at all and my skin is looking good and feels good too. I will use this a while and may even consider the 3 in this range. I trust this brand and I am happy

Best Use: Hydrating, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Visible Pores

Gentle retinal

This is an entry level serum and caused no irritation whatsoever. It was easy to apply and the 30ml tube lasted several months as I would apply it every night, on alternate evenings. The price is also good value compared to some others on the market and I have now graduated to the next one up in their range. if you are new to retinal, I would start here, especially if you have sensitive skin as this is very gentle. The serum which is a light cream in consistency, is pink coloured, which I found strange but it does absorb fully and the colour disappeared completely. I am happy with my purchase and will keep trying the rest in the range. It helped lighten some of my pigmentation but I believe the stronger serums will have more of an impact.

Best Use: Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Uneven Skin Texture
