Medik8 Intelligent Retinol 3TR

*Please note-Formerly known as Medik8 Retinol 3TR Intense. The formula and size remain the same.

Formulated with 0.3% retinol and supported by vitamin E for enhanced stability, this fast-absorbing serum is perfect for those new to vitamin A.

Retinol has been shown in several clinical trials to combat common skin-ageing concerns such as facial wrinkles, lines, folds, and a loss of firmness by stimulating collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Retinol has also been proven to improve skin clarity and texture, promote anti-pigmentation plus demonstrate anti-acne and pore-minimizing effects, all leading to a more youthful skin appearance.

With a unique time-release technology ensuring the anti-ageing benefits of pure retinol without the irritation and peeling associated with regular retinol products. Formulated with 0.3% retinol and supported by vitamin E for enhanced stability, this fast-absorbing serum is perfect for those new to vitamin A.

Intelligent Retinol 3TR is boosted with climbazole; an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. The formula is also infused with squalane, a deeply hydrating ingredient; specially selected to ensure skin is left instantly plumped and smoothed.

Key Ingredients:

0.3% Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to boost collagen levels and enhance the skin’s natural regenerative cycle; leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful.

Climbazole – Climbazole has been found to boost the activity of retinoids in the skin to give the power of higher percentages without irritation.

Squalane – A natural emollient; squalane helps to restore the skin’s natural defence barrier while deeply hydrating the skin.

Vitamin E – An oil-soluble antioxidant; vitamin E quenches free radicals on the skin while stabilising retinol for optimal power.

Size: 15ml dropper bottle- up to 50 applications

Directions: Apply at night only. When introducing Retinol start by using Intelligent Retinol 3TR before moving onto Intelligent Retinol 6TR. Retinol 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.

After cleansing in the evening, apply 4 drops of Intelligent Retinol 3TR directly onto the face. Alternatively, place a drop on your finger and then blend it into the skin. Leave to absorb before applying your regular Medik8 hydrator.
Please ensure you are applying sunscreen daily, even in the winter months.

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

Start low (application amount) and go slow (frequency of use). On any sign of irritation reduce the frequency of use until skin acclimates.
