Gentle retinolI knew I needed to get in the Retinol game but my skin is very reactive. I've had no issues with this! It is gentle and doesn't sting at all. The scent is nice too if that worries anyone. I will definitely continue using Medik8 products.
Gentle but effectiveRecently introduced retinal into my skincare routine and have successfully moved to daily use without any irrigation or reaction. Feels light and non sticky on the skin and also not too drying.
Great introductionverified purchaserI enjoyed this product. It was gentle enough as a first time user of vitamin a. No irritation. Hydrating. Helped to reduce some fine lines and breakouts.
Entry-Level Retinolverified purchaserA nice entry-level retinol which won't cause irritation to the skin. The product is quite hydrating and absorbs quickly. I didn't notice any difference in fine lines, but believe it has helped reduce the number of breakouts. I used half the tube prior to starting Retinal 3, and experienced no redness or sensitivity.
Holy grail of Vitamin AI have tried a couple of different vitamin A's but recently started using this and I think I've found the one! The texture of this serum is beautiful. It glides on so easily and sinks into the skin. It did not irritate my sensitive skin and I woke up in the morning even after the first time I had used it and noticed how bright and clear my skin looked. It felt like I had a facial while sleeping an...Read More
Love love loveThis is one of the few products that has actually worked for my blemishes, forehead wrinkles and pigmentation. It's a really nice intro to retinal and has a nice texture.
The only issue I had with it was the perfumed smell and not sure why it's an orangey colour...
However, I'll definitely repurchase! Just remember to wear spf when using it!!
so far so goodverified purchaserFirst time user of retinol. Been using this product for about a month and can see a difference in my skin already!
Nice intro to retinalFirst time user of retinal so started with this and gradually built up use to everyday. It has a really nice texture, doesn’t dry out or irritate my skin. I’ve almost finished the bottle and will purchase the retinal 3 next. I’ve only needed to use a small amount and have noticed slight improvements to my skin with consistent use.
GreatThis is great for my sensitive skin and doesn't not irritate it. Leaves my complexion better
My first time using retinol and I have loved itI only recently in the wrong side of my 30s have got into retinol so I’m late to the party, but I have loved using this, it’s a beautiful consistency and doesn’t irritate my skin at all and my skin looks great the morning after, I also don’t have congestion, it’s the best it’s ever been. I’ve already ordered the stronger one ..
Best rangeThe number 1 is a great start off point if you’re new to using Retinal. This didn’t iterate my skin at all, it’s a beautiful creamy texture with a pleasant scent. It makes my skin feel smooth and looks glowy and well hydrated. It also has helped my breakouts
Beautiful productThis product is so good for sensitive skin. It leaves an instant glow & no irritation. Skin is soft & hydrated in the morning. It delivers excellent results.
great retinollovely first retinol starter ... light, no irritation, soaks into skin leaves no residue... makes skin feel great
Great for sensitive skinI've only used this a couple of times so I could not tell its effectiveness on improving wrinkles. However, unlike other horror stories that I've heard about starting retinol, this is quite gentle on the skin. I do not experienced any peeling or any tingling sensation, and that is a huge bonus since I have quite a sensitive skin. I also feel that it helps with my hormonal acne around my chin and j...Read More
Wonderful resultsI just finished my retinal 1 and have absolutely loved it. It’s a Creamy formula that glides on wonderfully. It didn’t upset my skin at all and I saw visible results. I have now moved onto number 3
A great starting pointI bought this product for my mum who wanted to get into skincare.
In just a month we have seen improvements in her skins appearance, her skin looks dewy and her her skin texture has also improved.
She began using this product alongside the a Medik8 Vitamin C serum and together they have definetly changed her skin!
This product is a great starting point for a...Read More
AmazingThis has been very gentle for my oily skin but a great product. Will increase the strength next time
Great starter to retinalI have just finished my first tube and I am loving the results. My acne has cleared up 100% my fine lines have almost disappeared and my skin is so smooth. I will now be leveling up to the next strength and can’t wait to see how much more my skin will improve. I had 0 irritation with the crystal retinal 1.
Love this!Have been using this for over a month now and my skin took to this really well, no irritation or bad reaction (I have dry and sensitive skin). Skin feels and looks smoother. Highly recommend this product as a great starting point to adding vitamin A into your routine. Will move onto Crystal Retinal 3 once this is finished.
Helped skin a lotThis has been amazing for my skin. It has cleared up all my acne and my acne scarring. It has also improved the texture of my akin and help with fine lines. Will be steeping up soon to the next level
Love!I have really been loving this entire range. I started out with crystal retinal 1 and had absolutely no reaction it has made my skin look amazing. I have no gone up in strength. I do recommend you start off low and work yourself up
