Medik8 Retinol 3TR

Size: 15ml

Medik8 Retinol 3TR is a lightweight, jojoba oil-based retinol serum with 0.3% retinol buffered by tocopherol acetate for increased stability. With zinc and vitamin B complex, it plumps, firms and refines. To be used at night to help with fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Just like every item in the Truth In Aging shop, this retinol serum has been tested for at least 30 days and approved by a member of the Truth In Aging community, so you can be sure it really works.

After just over four weeks of using my sample of the Medik8 Retinol 3 TR ($55), I can say without reserve that I love it! I am 54 and have been using a vitamin C serum in the mornings along with moisturizer and lots of sunscreen. I talked with my dermatologist who said that the Number 1, 2 and 3 things we can do to protect our skin from aging is to use sunscreen (and then a retinol product).


I tried a prescription retinol cream many years ago but stopped, as it made my sensitive skin red. I hadn’t tried a retinol serum until I had the chance to try the Medik8 Retinol 3 TR. I was very excited to give it a whirl!


It felt great from the very first application. It was very easy to put on, my skin felt smooth and I didn’t have any redness or irritation. I have been using it at night.


What I have noticed mostly is that since the first application, my skin has been much less flaky. Somehow, it is gently exfoliating and making my skin smoother. I also noticed that my skin tone was brighter and more even from the first few days on. I haven’t noticed an improvement in fine lines yet, but they surely haven’t gotten worse.


The only difficulty I had was with the dropper. The instructions say that the dropper is shaped so that the serum can be applied directly on your face. I tried that the first couple of days, and I guess it was my own clumsiness — it just ran down my face, and I wasted product having to reapply it. More graceful people than I may have better luck! Fortunately the instructions also say that you can put drops on your finger and apply it that way, and that’s what I have been doing.


I would highly recommend this serum, especially for people like me who have sensitive skin. I will continue to use it — I’m a convert!

    At 4 weeks, I saw a definite improvement in skin glow. I wake up in the morning and I look rested even if I didn’t sleep really well. My skin looks “happy”! My lips had some very fine lines both above and below. The lines are still there but definitely improved enough that I don’t want to stop using the serum. My neck has some slight sagging and some lines…to me it is the part of my “facial presentation” that ages me the most. After 6 weeks, I see some slight neck improvement. I will be buying Medik8 Retinol 3 TR Advanced Night Serum again and am interested in eventually trying the next step up, Medik8 Retinol 6 TR Advanced Night Serum.
