    • 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 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 – 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 are keen to embark on their retinol 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 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.

      Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.

    Medik8 - Crystal Retinal 3

    Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3 Reviews

    Cult Beauty
    I was amazed by the speed/packaging of the service. Absolutely brilliant.
    Glowing skin
    Absolutely love this. I’ve used retinol products on and off before but never found one I really liked. I was torn between the 3 and the 6; I wasn’t sure if the 3 would be strong enough but I’m so glad I chose it to try first now. It makes my skin glow and it looks and feels so smooth. The consistency is more of a very lightweight cream than a serum but it sinks nicely into your skin and has a really pleasant smell (reminds me of Johnson’s baby powder but really mild). Wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase.
    It couldn't be better!
    I am so happy I discovered Crystal Retinal and added it to my routine! It made a huge difference to my complexion along with the Medik8 C-Tetra serum. No irritation, no dryness, just surprising effects only after a few uses. Will definitely repurchase!
    Not for existing retinol users
    I had already been using a retinol product on my skin for some time and didn’t feel this product was strong enough, my own fault for not properly reading the retinol content. However, the packaging is fab, I particularly love the pump which makes sure it’s not wasted or too much is used. No dryness, irritation, breakouts or reactions to it all. Would be great for first-time retinol users.
    Great product and great customer service
    Using this product has helped make my skin more radiant (or so people have said) over the last three months! I've also noticed that the sebaceous filaments on my nose have gone since using this! Also, the customer service at cult beauty is amazing as they replaced my tube super quickly when my pump stopped working!
    Brilliant product!
    Love this product. Definitely improved my skin and it’s is looking brighter and clearer after a few weeks of using it three times a week. No dryness or irritation. Would recommend!
    The Best
    Medik8 doesn't disappoint us. Lovely texture, effective but gentle.
    AMAZING!
    I have been using this product for a few weeks now, and I see improved hyperpigmentation and my skin is more even looking. Sun damage spots did get lighter.
    Great
    I love this. I particularly like the pump bottle which is easy to use, hygienic and stops you accidentally squirting out too much. The cream itself makes my skin super soft and I can see a noticeable improvement overnight if I have any blemishes. My skin type is normal. This doesn’t give me any redness or sensitivity. I always add a moisturiser on top too.
    Ideal product if you’re worries about using retinol
    I have only just introduced retinol to my skin for the very first time (30+) and let me tell you there’s no one more scared than me after reading a horror story of retinol effect on your skin! I wasn’t going to do it at all but with this product you have nothing to worry about... you start very slowly gradually building up. This has caused 0 irritation, no redness, no breakouts no harsh reaction. Once I am done with this, I am increasing to number 6, followed by 10. Medik8 is fantastic range. Love it.
    Love it!
    It’s my first retinol product and i’m so glad that i’ve started with Medik8 Crystal Retinal. It really works!
