      Directions for Use

      Step 1
      After cleansing in the evening, apply 2 pumps of Crystal Retinal to the face and neck. Allow to absorb then follow with a moisturiser. We recommend Advanced Night Restore which is specifically designed to be used after vitamin A.

      Step 2
      For new users of Crystal Retinal, phase application in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. You should always use a sunscreen the next morning after using vitamin A.

      Crystal Retinal 20 should only be used by those who have comfortably finished at least 2 tubes of Crystal Retinal 10, due to it containing a very high strength of retinal (0.2%).

      Key Ingredient

      Proven to work up to 11 times faster than standard retinol,* retinaldehyde (retinal for short) is a revolutionary form of vitamin A that effectively targets the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture and loss of firmness - without irritation.

      Hyaluronic Acid
      With the ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture into the upper layers of the skin; leaving the complexion hydrated and visibly supple.

      Vitamin E
      A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E works to protect against the ageing effects of free radical damage while stabilising retinal for optimal power.

      A natural humectant which traps moisture within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.
