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.

    Easy to use and works well.

    I find this cream easier to use than the retinol oils and it appears to work just as well.

    Absorbs into skin instantaneously

    This is my first Vit A product so I've been easing into my skincare routine gently as advised (use every third day) however have had minimal irritation.

    Absorbs into your skin so quickly. Always wear SPF 50+ after using

    So far so good

    I have only been using this product for a week now so it's difficult to give a full review. But as far as first impressions go I'm really enjoying this product. The pump style packaging is easy to use. No mess or waste. The product had a mild pleasant scent. I would like to mention that the formula is cream texture which sometimes makes it difficult to spread evenly over the face as it's advised to use a small pea size amount. So I have been keeping my face wet from my toner before applying this product, this has given me enough slip to spread it over my face evenly. I'd also like to mention I haven't yet experienced any side effects which is sometimes common with retinoid products. I'm not sure if its because I've built up my tollarance to retinoids or if it's the formula.

    Crystal Retinal

    I’ve used this product for 2 weeks so it’s too soon to tell, however on the nights when I use it, when I wake up the next morning, my skin feels smoother.

    Great results so far

    I've been using the Crystal Retinal 10 for about a month now, after using the retinal 6 for a month or so. Ideally I prefer to review a product after using it for a few months but I can safely say I've noticed significant improvements in my skin.

    A few months ago my skin was looking extremely dehydrated and I noticed a few of my fine lines appeared a bit more prominent. This was partially due to another product I had started using (part of The Ordinary range) which completed dried out my skin. So I went back to my trusted Medik 8 retinal and I'm so pleased to report back my skin is looking plump again and there's an obvious reduction in my fine lines. I should note I'm also eating better and exercising, so combined with using the Retinal 10 approximately 4 times per week, I'm seeing wonderful results. If you're interested in retinal/ retinol, please note that, unfortunately there is no cheaper alternative. Make sure you do lots of research.

    As pricey as it is, I can definitely recommend the Medik 8 retinal range. But I also keep a fairly simple skin routine - the retinal being my only luxury skincare so can justify the spend.
