The latest addition to the Medik8 range, the new r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum dramatically improves the signs of ageing and fatigue around the eyes using key age-defying actives.
Although formulated with high-performing ingredients, this gentle and lightweight serum is easily tolerated by all skin types. Retinyl Retinoate – which is eight times more powerful than Retinol – softens fine lines and brightens discolouration to noticeably improve the eye area’s tone and texture. Vitamin E provides antioxidant benefits while hydrating Glycerin and Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid plump and condition the skin, to make the eye contour appear more radiant and well-rested. Used twice a day, it can easily work alongside the rest of the r-Retinoate range without causing irritation.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
After cleansing, pat a small amount into the skin underneath the eyes. Can be used morning and night. Avoid the eyelids for best results.
If you are new to this product or any of its ingredients, we recommend completing a patch test first.
USE OF RETINOL
When using Retinol for the first time, it is important to allow the skin time to acclimatise to the active ingredient. Apply a small amount in the evening no more than twice a week, never on consecutive evenings, for at least two weeks. If the skin hasn’t suffered any extreme irritation or redness, start to increase the number of applications gradually over a period of weeks until you reach a number your skin is comfortable with. This could range from three nights to seven nights a week.
As Retinol can make the skin sensitive to sunlight, always apply a sunscreen to the skin every morning to prevent sun-induced inflammation and damage.
