Looking for an advanced serum to revive tired skin and wrinkles around the eyes? Try Medik8 Retinol Eye TR night serum, available to buy online from The Skin Clinic.
Retinol is the gold standard when it comes to anti-ageing skincare, making this eye serum a step up from regular eye creams.
Supercharged with Vitamin A and formulated with a special slow-release delivery system, the high-performance serum speeds up exfoliation and rejuvenation without overwhelming the delicate eye area.
While you sleep, the retinol works to improve your skin texture, minimising lines and dark circles for a healthier and younger appearance.
What are the benefits of Medik8 Retinol Eye TR for my skin?
This specialist serum is formulated to gently exfoliate the thin and sensitive skin around your eyes without irritation.
Medik8 Retinol Eye TR encourages collagen production to improve the texture and firmness of your skin, which helps to reduce lines and folds like crow’s feet.
It also hydrates under and around the eye for plumper and softer skin, giving your eyes a clearer and brighter appearance.
The formula is designed to melt into the skin with a dry finish, with no greasiness or residue left around the eyes.
How does Medik8 Retinol Eye TR work?
Intended for application at night, this serum complements and advances the regenerative process of your skin while you sleep.
With 0.1% retinol, a pure form of Vitamin A, Medik8 Retinol Eye TR speeds up the activation of retinoic acid, which then encourages the production of collagen.
This fights the signs of ageing by helping your skin cells to regenerate faster and maintain collagen levels, keeping your skin looking and feeling plump.
It also hinders the production of unwanted melanin in the surrounding area, reducing the appearance of dark shadows under the eyes.
The slow-release formula ensures that your skin absorbs the retinol gradually to avoid irritation, with added Vitamin E to stabilise the retinol and protect the skin.
Important information about Medik8 Retinol Eye TR
Retinol Eye TR is safe for all skin types, but it’s advisable to test the product on a small area prior to a full application as a precaution.
Consult your doctor before using this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, using other Vitamin A products or face peels, or taking any prescription medication to treat acne.
Medik8 Retinol Eye TR is intended for use no more than once a day, at night, so it can take effect overnight while you’re sleeping.
Please note that this is the original Medik8 Retinol Eye TR formula and does not contain Climbazole.
How to Apply+
The skin around your eyes is very fragile, so always remember to be gentle when applying skincare products to this area.
Follow the steps below to apply Medik8 Retinol Eye TR after you’ve already cleansed and dried your face in the evening:
1) Use the spatula applicator to sweep a small amount of serum across the brow bone and beneath the eye.
2) Use the applicator or your fingertip to gently blend the product around the eye, avoiding the eyelids.
The fast-absorbing serum has a powder-dry finish to prevent any tackiness or greasiness around your eyes, so you can proceed to apply your usual facial moisturiser before you go to bed.
Bear in mind that your skin needs to build up a tolerance to retinol for the product to work properly, so allow intervals of at least 3 days between applications for the first few weeks of use.
From the third week onwards, you can start applying the serum every two nights and then every other night, until you work up to nightly applications.
If signs of irritation such as dryness or redness occur, reduce your usage of the serum back to every few nights or once a week.
Remember to always wear sunscreen during the day when using retinol products at night, even during winter.
