Meet The Medik8 Products That Will Keep Dry Skin At Bay
If you’re serious about your skin, Medik8 is a brand that should be on your radar. While it might be famous for its vitamin A serums (Sam By The Counter and Caroline Hirons are fans), Medik8 is not a one trick pony. In fact, its hyaluronic acid serum and vitamin C are both firm favourites with Space NK customers.

Why We Love Medik8

Medik8 is a British cosmeceutical brand that is serious about skincare. The packaging is functional rather than flash and the formulas are results driven. Its USP is high performance retinol in the evening and skin-boosting vitamin C in the morning. There are plenty of other ingredients championed, including peptides and hyaluronic acid. Here are the best Medik8 products to leave your skin looking radiant and keep dryness at bay.

Best Medik8 Products For 2023



Crystal Retinal 3, N/A

Best Vitamin A Serum
Medik8 is perhaps most well-known for its retinoid products and the Crystal Retinal 3 contains a 0.03% dose of encapsulated retinaldehyde which provides all the skin-boosting benefits of retinol (the umbrella term, read our guide to retinoids, retinal and retinol here) without the irritation. Medik8 recommends using vitamin C in the morning and vitamin A in the evening. Crystal Retinal 3 is a good starting point for vitamin A beginners. If you have used the ingredient before, you can jump to Crystal Retinal 6.



Hydr8 B5 Intense, $26.00

Best Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating heavyweight, and the best serums contains several molecular weights for long-lasting hydration, like this one from Medik8. What we love about this particular hyaluronic acid serum though is its non-sticky, featherlight texture. Whether you want to apply it on its own before your face cream or add a couple of drops into your foundation, you won’t be disappointed with how soft and supple your skin feels after. You can trial Medik8's hyaluronic acid with the 8ml bottle for £20.



Super C Ferulic, N/A

Best Vitamin C Serum
There are a lot of vitamin C serums on the market, and this is easily one of our favourites because it contains a potent dose of ethylated ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C) to help ease dark spots. The addition of ferulic acid provides antioxidant protection against environmental aggressors. It’s worth noting that this vitamin C serum leaves your skin feeling dry rather than greasy and sits well under face creams and SPFs.



Advanced Night Restore, N/A

Best Nourishing Face Cream
If you’re regularly using active ingredients in your skincare routine, you need to invest in a high-quality face cream that is going to replenish and restore your skin barrier. This formula is packed full of peptides, ceramides and hyaluronic acid to soothe and hydrate.



H.E.O Mask, $78.00

Best Hydrating Face Mask
Medik8 H.E.O Mask is a two-step hydrating face mask designed to help soften and smooth your skin. While the blue gel helps to draw water into the skin with the help of hyaluronic acid and glycerin, the cream is packed full of squalane and ceramides to strengthen your skin barrier and lock in the hydration.
