    • Why it's Cult

      Medik8’s mission is simple - beautiful skin for life - which is why they consistently harness new, youth-boosting breakthroughs to keep your skin stronger for longer with three key technologies: vitamin C, sunscreen and vitamin A. High-end formulations at purse-friendly prices, this attainable range means you don’t need to choose between pounds and performance: the CSA method (C in the morning, followed by sunscreen then vitamin A in the evening) makes beautiful skin über easy – simplifying your daily regime while fast-tracking your path to a healthy complexion. What’s more, the brand is committed to making sustainable changes – from ethical sourcing to minimal waste – so your beauty routine is as clean as your conscience.

    • Description

      With four strengths to suit your skin’s needs (and its tolerance!), Medik8’s Crystal Retinal will super-charge your ritual with stable retinaldehyde to stimulate your cells to manufacture precious collagen which bolsters skin’s resilience and density. Level 10 has 0.10% encapsulated retinaldehyde and is a step up from 6 when your skin has acclimatised – great for those who’re keen to ramp the year-reversing impact up a gear.

      Retinoic acid is the form of retinol your skin can utilise (currently only available via prescription because of its potency) however, cells convert retinol (vitamin A) into retinaldehyde then retinoic acid with remarkable results – it’s just that they take a bit longer. Thus, by skipping a step in the conversion process and harnessing encapsulated retinaldehyde – a revolutionary new form of vitamin A – Medik8 speed up the line-smoothing, brightening, firming and dark spot-diminishing process with tangible changes in four weeks of use. With a unique crystal structure that is readily metabolised by enzymes when applied, Crystal Retinal ensures stability and maximum absorption while mitigating risk of irritation. With the radiance-boosting, clarifying and retexturising benefits of retinol (without the scaly side-effects), this fortifies skin overnight and delivers a visible difference 11 times faster than retinol. The addition of plumping and moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid and glycerin, alongside antioxidant vitamin E makes this perfect for those who’re eager to accelerate their age-reversing journey.

    • How to use

      After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount of Crystal Retinal across the face, neck and décolletage. Allow to absorb before applying your moisturiser.

      Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually, and only use in the evening. Use twice a week for the first two weeks, every other night for the next two weeks, then every night. Always wear sunscreen the following morning while using this product, and for one week after.

    Medik8 - Crystal Retinal 10

    Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10 Reviews

    It’s Amazing
    Resurfaces, helps with breakouts and pigmentation. Not too irritating but I’ve built up with the other Retinals in the range.
    Best Retinal
    I've only been using the Crystal 10 for a couple of weeks, but can already feel and see the difference. Skin feels smoother (not that it was bad before!) and forehead lines are reducing. The first night I was disappointed with the pump, as it didn't seem to be working. However, I read a review on the Medik8 website suggesting to apply a bit of pressure to the tube then pump. It worked! The advice is to apply a moisturiser once the retinol has absorbed - something I hadn't done with my previous Retriderm max 1%, but it works and skin looks great in the morning. Can also recommend the Medik8 Super C30, but as with everything work your way up to the higher strength.
    Great Retinol
    Great retinol, does what it is supposed to with no irritation or peeling whatsoever. I have really quite reactive skin and have to be careful about what I use. Worked my way up from 3 to 10 and wouldn't use anything else now
    Perfect OTC retinoid
    This product is amazing, after stopping use of tret I looked for a retinol type product for maintenance, and after researching I went after retinaldehyde, then found this product, I’ve been using it every night for a month now, and while I don’t think I’ll get improved results over the prescription tretinoin, unlike my last time with tret 2 years ago, my skin isn’t going back to its previous state, which I do appreciate. But I do notice more glow and less dryness, the product is so fast absorbing that I do sometimes feel like I need to use more than I should, since I do use only a pea-sized amount, sometimes I need two full pumps. It’s expensive, really expensive, if you don’t need to check your bank account before buying it go for it if you do, please don’t, go for Avene retinal, the same percentage, not as elegant as this but it will get the job done.
    Great Product
    Gently gives glowing skin and anti-aging results without irritation
    Bad First Impression
    I’ve had my eye on the product for a long time. Previously been using Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol and Osmosis MD Retinal Serum and was finally ready to try this and bite the bullet on the duties charges (UK to Canada) - but so far I’m not impressed. The product pump is so faulty and a struggle to even get anything out ( might have to open it up). It’s also heavily fragranced which I was not expecting and goes on almost dry? Doesn’t feel hydrating at all. Really hope this gets better over time given the price I paid as I obviously can’t return it.
