Medik8 Retinol 3TR

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.
Retinol 3 TR Advanced Night Serum has unique time-release technology ensuring the anti-ageing benefits of pure retinol without the irritation and peeling associated with regular retinol products. Contains highly stable, pure, encapsulated all-trans retinol at 0.3% concentration. Retinol 3 TR is an optimized serum containing 0.3% encapsulated all-trans retinol in its purest and most active over-the counter form. Retinol 3 TR is designed to conveniently apply directly to the face without mixing.

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.

When introducing Retinol start by using Retinol 3TR before moving onto 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 Retinol 3 TR directly onto face. Alternatively, place a drop on your finger and then blend into the skin. Leave to absorb before applying your regular Medik8 hydrator.
Please ensure you are applying a sunscreen daily (even in winter months)

Don't 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

I have just started to use this product. Having rosacea I was a bit apprehensive about using a retinol product on my skin. I have had no adverse reaction and my skin looked smooth in the morning. I particularly like that there are different strengths of retinol in the Medik8 products so I can increase the amount if I wish.


My first time using a retinol serum and have been very pleased with it so far. It hasn't caused any irritation or outbreaks and I'm now going to try the next level of retinol concentration in the hope for further improvements.

Helen Astill

Yes am pleased with purchase noticing subtle difference to skin


Marian Hankey

Have used retinol products in the past which made the skin more prone to redness and dryness. This product absorbs well, has a good effect upon the skin overall without the redness. It fits in well with the total skin regime used.

Sheila Holden

I have used this product for some years and am happy with the results.

Helen Eddy

I am just coming to the end of my first bottle of this treatment. It has been a game changer for my skin it literally glows, my pores are more te or less invisible and my wrinkles have defienatly softened. I’m going to try the 6 tr next.


I've been using this product for about 3 weeks. The serum is lovely. I've not had any irritation or dryness and I've just upped my routine to using everyday. My skin feels lovely and smooth. Still early days as need to use for longer to see an improvement in my fine lines.

Nicola Hughes

Absolutely fantastic product, My skin has never felt so good.

Gillian Roughneen

I am 38 with combination skin. I decided to use this product based on research. I have been using for about 6 weeks. I have noticed a significant change in my complexion. It's brighter, skin tone is even so much so I can get away without wearing make-up which is good when your knocking on 40's door. I haven't noticed much change in fine lines however this contains weakest levels of retinol this will improve as I increase levels. The only cons is there is slight irritation hence why you start of with low dosage and work your way up. Worth getting a good hydrating cream to counterbalance. Definitely worth it.

Charlotte Hall

Absorbs well, skin looks dewy when I wake up, has improved my spots and calmed inflammation. My skin looks clearer and more even toned.


I've been using every other evening, then applying a good moisturiser,am so impressed with this, skin looks brighter already. Will definitely re- purchase.


Used it every night and waiting for my skin to start shedding, use it on a clean face and sparingly


I use the product each night and would recommend for anyone who suffers with breakouts. Good quality product I have noticed an improvement in my skin.


great, will buy again, i am ***


I have only been using it for a few days but so far it is well tolerated and absorbs well into the skin.


Goes on easily and I can feel a slight tingle. Only used for a few days so I can't really say more than that.


I use the retinol 3TR at night twice weekly, very nice product, left my skin feeling smooth. The hydrating serum I use in the morning daily before my spf moisturiser, which really does feel gorgeous on and leaves my skin feeling refreshed.


I love this product, its the only retinol product which i have ever used which has not irritated my skin


Very happy with the product


I use every other evening. Followed by a night cream. Easy to use not too greasy. Would recommend for anyone who has pigmentation or sun damage


I love this product. Was very happy with the leaflet provided to help me understand the product more. I find it fantastic and would not be without it.. my skin feels amazing and i would highly recommend it


Got a little freebie of this with another purchase. Seems like a very nice rich night-time moisturiser!


I've only just started using this but it is definitely making a visible difference to my skin. I'm using it every other day at the moment before I go to bed. I would recommend it to anyone really!

Wendy Jane

Excellent product.


This is a new product to my beauty routine. Have only started using so can't really rate it as yet. What I can say so far is that it feels good on the feels soft, easily absorbed. Happy.


I gradually introduced this product over a three week period at night time. It's amazing for fine lines and wrinkles.


I would recommend to anyone with acne scaring

Mrs Mrs

i have sensitive skin and this product has been lovely to use-no reaction.


I use a couple of drops on my face and décolletage at night under a rich moisturiser every 2 to 3 days. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to give their skin a boost. It is easy to use, the bottle lasts for ages too
