With 0.01% Encapsulated Retinaldehyde, also referred to as retinal, the Crystal Retinal 1 is your new hard-working hero serum. Not only does it help to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it plumps, softens, resurfaces and firms, too. Add hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and glycerin into the prodigious blend, and you have a serum that hydrates skin at every level resulting in a supple complexion without aggravating the skin.

A cream-like serum that effortlessly melts into skin, the Crystal Retinal 1 is your new nighttime treat. Providing the same results as retinol but up to 11 times faster, retinal works to boost the production of collagen and elastin for resurfaced and renewed skin. Retinal also triggers cell regeneration, ready for overnight rejuvenation that results in visibly improved skin texture. Encased in a crystal structure that can be broken down by the skins natural enzymes, retinal is easily absorbed, allowing the slow release of vitamin A for minimal irritation as you sleep. Combine this with the hydrating and soothing properties of cult ingredients hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, and youve got a serum that feels just as good as it makes you look. Dont forget the antibacterial properties of retinal too, that directly and powerfully attack acne-causing bacteria for a healthy, clear complexion. Mighty, yet mild, the Crystal Retinal 1 is suitable for sensitive skin or vitamin A newbies who want low strength with power.


After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount of Crystal Retinal across the face, neck and daccolletage. Allow to absorb before applying your moisturiser. Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually, and only use in the evening. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. Always wear sunscreen the following morning while using this product, and for 1 week after. Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.

    Forever repurchasing
    5 out of 5 stars
    I buy it for myself, I buy it for everyone. The best in the market. I have sensitive skin and it didn't cause any issues for me. The weaker version wouldn't be enough for me so unless one has rosacea, this version is pretty good. One tube is enough to see improvement in fine lines and texture and can't wait to see better results with the second tube.

    My skin is really sensitive and unfortunately this was still too strong. The texture is really nice though.
