Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3 Serum 30ml

Medik8s 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 dont 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 aber easy simplifying your daily regime while fast-tracking your path to a healthy complexion. Whats 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.

With four strengths to suit your skins needs (and its tolerance!), Medik8s Crystal Retinal will super-charge your ritual with stable retinaldehyde to stimulate your cells to manufacture precious collagen which bolsters skins resilience and density. Level 3 stars 0.03% encapsulated retinaldehyde and is great for beginners who're dipping their face in the retinol water

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 its 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 are keen to embark on their retinol journey.

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

Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually, and only 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.

Amazing Retinol for beginner !

I'm a huge fan of Sunday Riley retinol serum and used 3 bottles of them but they're bit pricey and I want some changes so I decided to move to Medik 8 and really happy with the result ! I started with crystal 3 because I haven't used retinol from Medik8 before so must be careful but it works so well, same dramatic result as Sunday Riley but better smell 😂 and even better in some ways because my skin is less dry. Highly recommend to use along with Medik 8 advanced night cream cus they work amazingly together !

AMAZING!

Bought this with a discount code as my cheaper Retinol product had run out. This stuff is amazing! Since I am a regular retinol user, I didn't experience any sensitivity and have been using it about 3x a week as part of my evening routine. I am currently experiencing a little bit of a purging period, but nothing that I wouldn't happily work through for the next couple weeks. My skin overall looks brighter, smoother and fresher and I have a feeling it will just keep getting better after several months of use.

Very good

I’ve tried a few retinols over the time but this really does leave my skin soft & clear I’m only using 3 times a week at the moment I think that this is enough for my skin

Well what can I say this product is just THE best! After struggling with my skin I was recommended this by a friend... I had results pretty much overnight and they just keep getting better!

Very good

I bought this in April and had been consistently using it about 3 times a week. I used it after cleansing, and then I layered the Medika8 Advanced Night Restore after. I am quite happy with this product. It is effective without being too strong and causing any bad reactions, despite it being a retinal. Layering on a really good moisturiser after the retinal really helps, and there was no dryness or irritation. My skin felt smoother when I woke up in the morning, the texture is creamy, and the scent is like vanilla and quite subtle. I am almost done with the tube I got and had already purchased the retinal 6, ready for the upgrade.

Medik8 Christal Retinal3

This was suggested to me by a Cult Beauty Lovely Lady and I think the product itself is fabulous, really suited my skin without complication and helped to reduce uneven skin tone even on my rapidly ageing skin. The packaging is unfortunate. The pump at the end of the tube lasts about 5 times. It was suggested I squeeze the tube whilst pressing the pump top. Didn't work either. Solution; either waste the rest of the product still in the tube or cut the bottom of the tube and squeeze the remaining product into a CLEAN glass pot and just hope the product keeps its efficacy. So sad as the products really do what they say. Wanted to buy their SPF but note that has the same daft top. Also wanted to 'go up a notch' and try the Retinal 6 but think it would be the same problem. What's wrong with a simple tube you can squeeze then replace the top. Simple!

No difference yet...

I can't see any difference in my skin yet but I've been quickly able to move to applying this on a daily basis with no ill effects. The smell is lovely and it sinks in quickly. I have only just learned that this should be used on the eye area too with eye cream applied after it sinks in.

Brilliant

This is my first retinol but I am converted. No redness or flaking but visibly better skin - both in terms of pore size and fine lines/radiance.

Lovely product

I have been using this for about 4 weeks now and really like the product. I have also upgraded from The Inkey List and find I get no irritation or dryness at all. The only issue I have is with the pump which doesn’t always dispense the product. I will definitely repurchase.
