Advanced 0.3% Vitamin A Serum Reveal a more youthful appearance with this lightweight Intelligent Retinol (vitamin A) serum. Designed to complement skin’s nightly regenerative cycle, Retinol 3TR™ resurfaces while you sleep to rejuvenate skin and restore radiance. Hailed as the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing, vitamin A improves skin texture, minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and balances uneven skin tone. Retinol also helps to decongest pores and regulate sebum production for a clearer looking complexion. Formulated with Time Release Technology, retinol is delivered gradually into the deeper layers of the skin throughout the night to ensure maximum results without overwhelming or irritating skin. That’s why Medik8 considers all their retinol products: “intelligent retinol”. Features: Anti-Ageing: Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that helps improve the signs of ageing. This increase in retinoic acid helps to visibly plump and refine the skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Skin Evening: Vitamin A can also boost the regenerative cycle of skin cells and hinder the formation of excess melanin to leave skin looking smooth and even-toned. Ingredient friendly: Synthetic colour free, artificial fragrance free, paraben free, phthalate free, alcohol free, cruelty free, and vegan friendly! Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin A is used in combination with vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect delicate skin from external free radical damage, while stabilising vitamin A for a highly potent, long-lasting formula. Key Ingredients: 0.3% Retinol: Pure vitamin A helps improve the visibly signs of ageing, leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful. Vitamin E: An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin while stabilising retinol for optimal power. How to use: After cleansing in the evening, massage 4 drops of Retinol 3TR across the face, neck and décolletage. Follow with your regular Medik8 moisturiser or facial oil.

Hot Tip: Phase in usage gradually over time to prevent irritation! FAQs Q: Why do I need to gradually phase in use of this?
