Ready to Elevate Your Eye Care?
The eyes are one of the most telling areas when it comes to ageing due to expression lines, crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles. That’s why Medik8 have created the new Crystal Retinal Ceramide Eye: a world-first clinical-strength retinal expertly formulated for the delicate under-eye area. Using ceramides, Retinal, hyaluronic spheres and chamomile extract, it effectively reduces signs of ageing and wrinkles in just a matter of weeks. Discover what it is, how it works and why your eyes will thank you later.
What is it and how does it work?
Medik8’s cult favourite Crystal Retinal system is now available in a ladder of three strengths for eyes (3, 6, and 10), so you can customise and progressively increase strengths based on your skin type, age and sensitivity. Clinically proven to brighten, smooth and lift the eye area overnight, the new Crystal Retinal Ceramide Eye works to visibly target the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles while deeply nourishing and soothing the sensitive eye area. The special formula is made using the ultimate ingredient combination of ceramides and hyaluronic acid filling spheres, plus twin-encapsulated retinaldehyde (a next-generation form of vitamin A)—all expertly optimised to ensure a perfect balance of gentleness and power. It’s also dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, as well as 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
How do the hero ingredients work?
Ceramides: Natural lipids that help strengthen the skin barrier and retain moisture
Hyaluronic acid filling spheres: A type of hyaluronic acid made up of spheres that visibly fill and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This helps skin appear more plump, youthful and hydrated by morning.
Twin-encapsulated retinaldehyde (Retinal®): An eye-specialist, ultra-slow release retinal delivery system to ensure that the formula is gentle, soothing and optimised for anti-irritation.
Chamomile extract: To calm and soothe the eye area overnight.
What makes it unique?
Unlike generic retinol eye treatments, this innovative formula is available in a ladder of progressive strengths (3-10) for visible results that become more evident over time. The ultra-slow release Crystal Retinal also prevents irritation around the delicate eye area. It’s your all-in-one eye solution that’s gentle enough to nourish and hydrate, while also delivering powerful anti-ageing results.
The Medik8 Philosophy
Medik8 is committed to using the latest scientific research to develop products that are clean, sustainable and gentle, yet highly effective. The new Medik8 Crystal Retinal® Ceramide Eye is an extension of the award-winning cult classic Crystal Retinal range formulated for the face. Medik8’s simple but effective approach to skincare revolves around CSA: vitamin C, sunscreen and vitamin A (found in the Crystal Retinal range).
What does the ladder mean for under-eye skin?
For new Vitamin A users or those with very sensitive skin, start with the lowest strength 3 (0.03%) to allow your skin to adapt. For regular, more experienced Vitamin A users, or as you build up your tolerance, try the middle strength 6 (0.06%), and finally the highest strength 10 (0.10%) to intensify results.

AM: Use the hydrating Medik8 Advanced Day Eye Protect, formulated to combat signs of ageing while nourishing and protecting the delicate eye area. When using retinal at night, make sure to always apply SPF the next morning as retinal can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun.
