It contains actives Retinol, Dragon Fruit, Hyaluronic Acid, Arginine, and Vitamin E to nourish and revitalise.

Why Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A?

This advanced night cream uses time release technology to deliver the Retinol gradually in the skin to reduce potential irritation.

A concentration of 0.2% Retinol makes it ideal for those who are new to Retinol or have the first signs of skin ageing. With consistent use, it will stimulate collagen, improve elasticity and make skin look more radiant.

Retinol also helps to decongest pores and regulate sebum production for a clearer looking complexion. The night cream is also non-comedogenic, making it suitable even fore oilier skin types.

This formulation has been enhanced with Dragon Fruit, Arginine, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E to round out the benefits.

Key ingredients

Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative that’s one of the most researched and proven anti-ageing ingredients in skin care. Retinol is known for boosting collagen and elastin production in the skin. This cream contains 0.2% Retinol to combat the early signs of skin ageing and improve skin tone and texture.

Dragon Fruit is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage. It also has been found to support the skin’s natural regenerative process so that it can repair and renew itself. Dragon Fruit contains natural sugars called polysaccharides that visibly firm the skin and help it retain moisture. This extract is derived from the flowers, which only bloom at night.

Hyaluronic Acid attracts moisture to the skin and helps keep it there, creating a plumping effect. It also increases the skin’s protective barrier so that the skin is better able to retain water and defend itself against external aggressors. A skin that’s well protected and hydrated is able to  spend more of its time generating new, healthy skin cells. This leads to smoother and younger-looking skin.

Arginine is a soothing ingredient that promotes skin healing and repair, while also helping to rejuvenate the complexion. This amino acid protects against free radicals, improves hydration and may also support collagen production.

Vitamin E is an oil-soluble antioxidant that prevents damage caused by free radicals, which wreak havoc by stealing electrons from your cells. The Vitamin E also stabilises the Retinol to maintain its potency.

Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A Review

This was recommended to me by my facialist last year after I experienced some really horrible breakouts. Having never used vitamin A cream before, I was hesitant, as my skin is incredibly sensitive… I absolutely loved this as an introduction to retinol products. I noticed a significant difference in the texture of my skin after using this consistently for a few weeks. I would definitely recommend it to those wanting to introduce retinol into their routine but aren’t sure where to start.


How to use

After cleansing in the evening, use the spatula to apply Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A Cream.

Dab cross the face, neck and décolletage and blend gently into the skin.

Retinol 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.

If you have sensitive skin, apply only once a week to start and increase by one application every two weeks, only if skin allows

Always patch testing prior to using on the entire face.

Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
