Rediscover youthful skin with Crystal Retinal 1™, Medik8’s latest innovation in vitamin A. Formulated with 0.01% stabilised retinal, a powerful derivative of vitamin A with next-generation anti-ageing results. Unmatched in its age-defying power, retinal can deliver results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A up to 11 times faster than classic forms of retinol.

The ground-breaking overnight serum visibly minimises fine lines and wrinkles; firming and plumping the complexion to resurface skin texture and soften the face. Featuring hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin E, it hydrates skin at every level to deliver a supple, even-toned, more youthful-looking complexion. More than that, it actively helps reduce blemish-causing bacteria to keep skin clear and balanced. In just 4 weeks, skin is noticeably younger, smoother and undeniably radiant.

Brand:
Medik8
Directions:

After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount of Crystal Retinal 1 across the face, neck and décolletage. Allow to absorb before applying your moisturiser. 

Crystal Retinal 1 application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. Always wear sunscreen the following morning while using this product, and for 1 week after. Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.

Retinal newbie

I've tried lower strengths retinol and retinyl palmitate etc. but this was the first product I've used consistently that is retinaldehyde. Smells nice (which shouldn't matter). Consistency is a little thicker than I thought but does sink in which is nice for an oily skin like myself. Had a breakout which I think was a little purge at the beginning so having been doing as advised and using it every 3 days for the first two weeks.

LOVE!!!!

I have only been using this product for a few weeks so too early to speak re anti-ageing, however, this has already made a MASSIVE difference to a cystic acne breakout I had on my cheek. For months I tried loads of different products and nothing seemed to make a difference (the area constantly looked so spotty and inflamed), but this product has almost completely gotten rid of it and it's looking pretty clear now! Very pleased! :)

Should’ve gone for 3

After only ever using one retinol before I thought I’d upgrade to retinal. I should’ve gone for the 3 rather than the 1 personally as my skin is not too sensitive. However that being said this product is great. Easily absorbed and I use it every other night. Been using for a couple of weeks and already seeing results. My skin looks way more hydrated and plump

Absolutely fantastic!

Recommended by Caroline Hirons! I'd previously used a liquid retinol from the Ordinary. This consistentcy is more like a cream and goes on beautifully. You only need to wait 1bmin after application and then move on to other products. No irritation. I'll be moving on the to the higher potency (crystal retinal 3) in this range after this is finished. Highly recommend!

Great introduction to retinal

I have very sensitive skin and rosacea which is why I was a bit cautious and did not want to risk trying retinal for a long time. However, this product is great and works even for my sensitive skin, I did not experience any skin irritation. Just make sure you are using a moisturizer after this, to avoid overdrying the skin and start slowly (I started with applying it once a week and then moved to twice a week) incorporating this product in your skincare routine. I have been using it for about two months and the texture of my skin has significantly improved. I am very happy that I decided to try this product.
