Medik8 Retinol Eye TR™
A high-performance eye serum that works while you sleep to speed up the natural exfoliation process. The fragrance-free serum sinks into skin quickly, leaving a soft and hydrated complexion. Using vitamin E for enhanced stability and Time Release Technology to decrease irritation, Medik8 Retinol Eye TR provides noticable results while being gentle on skin. The most important step in your night-time anti-ageing routine, Retinol Eye TR reveals a more youthful and radiant eye area.
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 signals skin cells to produce proteins such as collagen. This increase in retinoic acid both boosts and preserves collagen levels within the skin for a plump, youthful-looking eye area. Vitamin A can also boost the regenerative cycle of skin cells and hinder the formation of excess melanin to smooth the skin. Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula continuously throughout the night, slowing down vitamin A absorption for reduced irritation. Vitamin A is used in combination with vitamin E, an oil soluble antioxidant that helps to protect delicate under-eyes from external free radical damage, while stabilising vitamin A for a highly potent, long-lasting formula.
0.1% Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to boost collagen levels, enhance the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, leaving skin looking even 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, use the spatula-style applicator to sweep a small amount of Retinol Eye TR across the under-eye and brow bone, avoiding eyelids. Gently blend. Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.
With a lower amount of retinol at 0.1% this silky serum is perfect for the delicate eye area. I use it every night as part of my night time routine.
