Medik8 Retinol 1TR Cream

Medik8 Retinol 1 TR Vitamin A Renewal Cream is a night-time moisturizer infused with 0.1% Retinol to address first signs of ageing. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, this cream melts quickly into skin and targets fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone and texture; its advanced encapsulation technology delivers retinol slowly into skin to help build up tolerance. Hyaluronic Acid and glycerin enhance moisture levels whilst supporting the skin's natural barrier function. Helping to renew the appearance of skin, the cream will leave the complexion looking smoother, younger and hydrated.The cream's low dosage of Retinol makes it the perfect introductory product for those new to the ingredient, or those with sensitive skin. Medik8 Retinol 1 TR Vitamin A Renewal Cream has been tested by the Truth In Aging community so you can trust that it works.

Reviewed by Jane M

New to retinol products, I was excited to try Medik8’s Retinol 1 TR Cream as it is touted as the “perfect introduction” to retinol on Medik8’s website. Medik8 says it’s a “softer 0.1% dosage. Ideal for those with super-sensitive skin that want to give retinol a try, but still receive a strong result that you will notice and love.” Despite targeting super-sensitive skin, the instructions recommend one use the product twice per week to start and work up to using it every night, which I did and other than using this night cream, I made no other changes to my skincare routine.

I was also pleased that Medik8 does not test its’ products on animals and uses eco-friendly packaging (although the glass jar is double walled and much larger than it needs to be). The glass jar is also not particularly hygienic and I prefer packaging that is sealed like an airless pump or even a tube, but I’m sure there is a reason for the jar and the product is lovely enough to overlook this. While the packaging didn’t impress me, the list of ingredients did: 0.1% Vitamin A (Retinol), hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and Vitamin E. Further the cream uses something called “time-release technology” to, in theory, deliver a continuous dose of Retinol.

Medik8’s product line and philosophy are noteworthy – they believe in “solution-specific products” that provide proven results and they create their products in small batches with skin “safe” ingredients to minimize irritation. The 1 TR Cream is no exception. It is a thick rich luxurious night cream with a very slight grainy texture and a very mild scent. Despite having sensitive skin I had no irritation or sensitivity using this cream and in fact, it was quickly absorbed into my skin and left my face with a nice dewy look. After a very short period of time my skin texture and tone improved and I was impressed!

Overall, my impressions were positive for my 53 year old skin and I definitely recommend Medik8 Retinol 1TR Cream if you’re interested in trying retinol, but have sensitive skin or if you’re new to Retinol. It’s a terrific product designed just for you.
