Medik8 Crystal Retinal 6

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 6 contains 0.06% encapsulated retinol and is a step up from 3 when your skin has acclimatised great for those who're used to retinol but want to ramp things 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 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 continue 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 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.

Amazing retinol

This has been a game changer for my skin; less breakouts and a radiant glow!

Disappointed

For the longest time I wondered what I was doing wrong with my skin because at times it would be so soft, plump and supple and other days I would break out and have a bunch of white heads all over my face. I later realized that whenever I stopped using this product, my skin clears up. As a retinol product this is supposed to help with texture but instead it causes my skin to become so congested and bumpy I end up having scars now as if I had acne (which I don’t). Really disappointed :/

Miracle Product

I have the most sensitive rosacea skin that reacts to everything and is intolerant to retinol. Amazingly I can tolerate this. I started slowly with No 1, then 3 and now on 6! It has changed the look of my skin - less inflamed and dry and more fresh looking. Definitely recommend!

Medik8 Crystal 6

My first medik8 retinol product, so far I really like it, a lovely texture applies beautifully, I've not had a single reaction, but I have been using retinol. In hindsight I perhaps should have gone for the 10, will definitely purchase it next.

Show stopper

Having used Medik8 products for over 2yrs now, I cannot fault this product at all. My skin would be quite sensitive but I haven’t had a reaction at all, no dryness, flakiness, the dreaded retinol purge or tightness. It’s a wonderful product!

Love this product

I first tried Retinal 3 from Caroline Hirons’ winter kit. If the queen says it’s good I believe her! Important - you do need to ease into this slowly. After five months my fine lines are definitely improved, particularly around my eyes and upper cheeks when smiling. Skin looks plumper, smoother, and lines not as deep. Am now trying the 6 and looking forward to continued good results!

Truly impressive

I’ve been using Medik8 products for about 6 months and have made my way up the ladder. This is truly amazing in terms of effectiveness and is in a class of its own, however, it’s really important to wear SPF (50) religiously.

Gentle and effective

I have dry/sensitive skin and almost all retinol products make it extremely dehydrated. This is wonderful and you can notice the result almost immediately (increased clarity & glow). I have used other retinoids before, this is just a notch up in strength. Will definitely repurchase.

Great product with visible result

Medik8 retinal has a great texture and gentle affect which provides a visible result within 3 months of use. I personally have resilient skin so I cannot say for sure if the product is non-irritating for sure, but from my own experience, I jump to this strength from 1 month of Retinal 3, and before that, I was using retinol from THE INKEY LIST. So I think the transition is perfect for me in my own experience. After upping the strength from 3 to 6 (using them in mix), I still did not experience any irritation and still see results in the firmness of my skin. Overall retinoid is a long-term game, and I'm glad this product worked for the time being for me, hoping that it will continue to provide me all of the benefits in the next few years when my own bio-activities in the skin start to slow down. Definitely recommend it to an experienced retinol user who cannot get Tret from a prescription.
