Winner Of Best Retinol Product - Marie Claire Awards 2022!

If you have really sensitive skin or would like to add a gentle-strength but highly effective vitamin A serum into your routine then this is the product for you.

Medik8's entry-level vitamin A is formulated with 0.01% Stabilised Retinaldehyd, a super-charged derivative of vitamin A.


  • works with the skin to enhance collagen production and speed up cellular turnover
  • works up to 11 times faster in the skin than classic forms of retinol
  • plumps and resurfaces skin
  • visibly minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • helps to achieve a healthier, more youthful, even-toned complexion
  • with added hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, it hydrates the skin whilst strengthening the skin’s barrier to keep moisture locked in tight.
  • it's lightweight and luxurious, silk-like texture sinks effortlessly into the skin to nurture and restore the complexion.

Key Ingredients:

Retinal/Retinaldehyde: Works up to 11 times faster than classic retinol, while being gentle. Diminishes P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for breakouts.

Hyaluronic Acid: Acts as a moisture-keeper to maintain hydration levels and elasticity within the skin.

Glycerin: Enhancing the skin’s natural barrier function and reducing the TEWL (transepidermal water loss).

Vitamins C & E: Powerful antioxidants which quench free radicals to fight against visible signs of ageing.

Size: 30ml

Directions: Start low (application amount) and go slow (frequency of use). On any sign of irritation reduce the frequency of use until the skin acclimates. After cleansing in the evening, blend a small amount over the face and neck before your regular Medik8 moisturiser or hydrator.

Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then every day. During the day, always wear sunscreen whilst using this product and for a week afterward.

Precautions: Don't use if pregnant, lactating, undergoing skin peeling procedures, on any other vitamin A product, or taking prescription medication for acne.
