Rediscover youthful skin with Crystal Retinal! Formulated with stabilised retinal, a powerful derivative of vitamin A with next-generation anti-ageing results. Unmatched in its age-defying power, retinal delivers 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 in just 4 weeks; firming and plumping the complexion to resurface skin texture and soften the face.

  • Crystal Retinal 1 (0.01%) - An entry level gentle-strength vitamin A, ideal for those who have really sensitive skin or are looking to incorporate a low strength but highly effective vitamin A serum in their routine. 
  • Crystal Retinal 3 (0.03%) - The entry point for those who are new to vitamin A or have tried mild retinol formulas and the answer to those looking to prevent early signs of skin ageing.
  • Crystal Retinal 6 (0.06%) - Perfect for those who are wanting to upgrade their high-strength retinol results. 
  • Crystal Retinal 10 (0.10%) - A high-performance anti-ageing serum for those looking to boost the results of Crystal Retinal 6.

    How It Works

    Clinical-grade vitamin A, otherwise known as retinoic acid, is an exceptionally powerful skincare ingredient for youthful-looking skin. Highly potent and wildy efficacious, it is able to trigger cellular regeneration and collagen production to fight all visible signs of ageing. Retinoic acid is only available with a prescription, but vitamin A is available over the counter in the form of retinol skincare products. 

    Retinol has similar effects to retinoic acid, however it must first be converted to retinaldehyde and then to retinoic acid to be used by the skin. Crafted with retinaldehyde, Crystal Retinal requires just one conversion to retinoic acid. This means that it is able to produce results comparable to retinoic acid up to 11 times faster than classic forms of retinol. The advanced active is carefully encapsulated in a crystal structure that is broken down by the skin’s natural enzymes when topically applied. This ensures maximum stability and absorption while allowing the vitamin A active to be released gradually into the skin while you sleep for minimal irritation. Combined with hydrating hyaluronic acid and skin-soothing vitamin E, Crystal Retinal targets fine lines and wrinkles for smooth and visibly youthful skin. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, retinaldehyde boasts direct, powerful antibacterial properties. This allows it to target acne-causing bacteria; promoting a healthy, visibly clear complexion.

    Best retinol I've ever tried

    Excellent fast acting retinol. I can see the results after 2 weeks of use and the texture is amazing. I didn't get any skin irritation but I have used retinol previously.

    It works

    I bought this for my 30yo husband who has acne scarring from his teen years and some fine age lines.

    He uses is daily and his skin looks 10x better. The acne scarring has visibly improved, skin texture is smoother and is brighter too.

    Liking it so far

    Although it’s too early to see results I have heard many glowing reviews about this product hence why I purchased it, I must say I love the scent and texture of this retinal and can’t wait to see the results I keep hearing about :)

    Time will tell

    I've given 5 stars because after approx 4 weeks I'm seeing a difference in my skin, but I'm not sure if it's the full routine I'm using (vitamins ABC, peels and masks weekly). I'm starting to run out already which is a shame given the price but I'd buy again if my skin keeps improving. It's more of an overall improvement, I'm not sure that my wrinkles are affected much yet so it might be a little early to tell. I'd like to see how it improves alongside some in-clinic treatments once salons operate again.
