Medik8 Crystal Retinal 6 30ml
Rediscover youthful skin with Crystal Retinal 6™, Medik8’s latest innovation in vitamin A. Formulated with 0.06% stabilised retinal, a powerful derivative of vitamin A with next-generation anti-ageing results. Unmatched in its age-defying power, retinal can deliver results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A up to 11 times faster than ic forms of retinol. The ground-breaking overnight serum visibly minimises fine lines and wrinkles; firming and plumping the complexion to resurface skin texture and soften the face. Featuring hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin E, it hydrates skin at every level to deliver a supple, even-toned, more youthful-looking complexion. More than that, it actively helps reduce blemish-causing bacteria to keep skin clear and balanced. In just 4 weeks, skin is noticeably younger, smoother and undeniably radiant.2
Crystal Retinal 6 is perfect for those who are new to vitamin A or who are looking to upgrade their retinol results.
Available in four strengths: Crystal Retinal 1 (sensitive skin or new to Vitamin A), Crystal Crystal 3 (normal strength Vitamin A), Retinal 6 (super-strength Vitamin A) and Crystal Retinal 10 (ultra-strength Vitamin A)
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 helps reduce the 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 6 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 ic 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 6 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.

I bought this as a step up from the Medik8 3. It’s a nice increase in strength, still gentle enough that it won’t peel your whole face off but has great results. I love!
