The Science Behind
Native to Mexico, dragon fruit is grown from the night-blooming cactus (Hylocereus undatus) which flowers only at night. Also called moonflowers, the white, fragranced blossom grows succulent dragon fruits 30-50 days after flowering. Dragon fruit has high levels of antioxidants to protect the skin and is bursting with natural sugars for firming and toning the skin.
Is the Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A™ Cream suitable for all skin types?
1,000 times yes! Our retinol cream is the next generation of its predecessor — with a higher 0.2% concentration that has been innovatively formulated to activate and release the powerful ingredient and ensure your skin can readily accept it with minimal irritation. This makes it the perfect option to rely on — whether you’re a first-time or experienced retinol user or have sensitive skin, you can restore the look and feel of your skin without compromising on its efficacy.
How often should I use this product?
If this is your first introduction to using a retinol cream, welcome! For the first 2 weeks, we suggest using it twice weekly before gradually increasing your application to every second night to daily once your skin can accept and adapt to this powerful ingredient.
Can I use this Medik8 retinol cream with other skincare products?
The Medik8 retinol cream is a potent formula designed to be the star of your routine. We suggest using other active treatments, such as acids, on alternate nights.
How do I use this product in my nighttime skincare routine?
Our retinol cream is optimised to be the last step of your evening skincare routine. We’ve lovingly formulated our Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A™ Cream with occlusive ingredients to seal in moisture to help you wake with a plumper and smoother-looking complexion.
Can I use Medik8 Night Ritual Cream in the morning too?
We recommend keeping our retinol cream in your evening routine as it can increase your sensitivity to the sun. For effective protection and an anti-ageing solution, we always suggest incorporating a Medik8 sunscreen to shield your skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays that can cause irreversible damage.
Are there any side effects to using the Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A™ Cream?
We use a mild, time-release formula that ensures our retinol cream is both incredibly effective and gentle on the skin. As retinol is a strong, active ingredient, people with sensitive skin may find their demis to be a little drier — however, once your skin acclimatises and adapts to our retinol cream, you will be rewarded with supple skin, reduced texture and most importantly, wrinkles that start to appear less defined.
How long does it take to see results from using this product?
With regular and consistent application of our retinol cream, it can take several weeks to start seeing beautiful skin for life.
Is Medik8 cruelty-free and vegan?
Absolutely — Medik8 and our suppliers are completely cruelty-free. We carefully formulate our products using proven vegan ingredients, so you can enjoy greater peace of mind knowing you don’t need to compromise your lifestyle choices.
