Take your evening skincare to the next level with Retinol 6TR+ Intense. A lightweight vitamin A night serum that refines skin tone and texture to help visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. As the most effective anti-ageing ingredient, vitamin A also balances uneven skin tone and helps to decongest pores for a clearer complexion. Crafted with Time Release Technology, the innovative serum allows retinol to be “drip-fed” into the skin throughout the night; helping prevent unwanted irritation and dryness. Retinol 6TR+ Intense has been supercharged with climbazole, a compound proven to boost the results and anti-ageing benefits of vitamin A without increasing the irritation.* The formula is also infused with squalane, a deeply hydrating ingredient specially selected to ensure skin is left looking instantly plumped and smoothed. That’s why we consider all our retinol products: “Intelligent Retinol”. Read more about what makes them so intelligent here.
Formulated with the same 0.6% retinol and vitamin E for stability as Retinol 6TR, plus the added synergistic benefits of squalane and climbazole to further boost visible results, without the need to go up to a higher strength retinol.

How It Works
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This increase in retinoic acid visibly plumps and refines the skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Vitamin A can also help promote cell turnover to diminish the appearance of fine lines, winkles and uneven skin tone. Retinol 6TR+ Intense is boosted with climbazole; an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. Retinoids are often notorious for being drying and irritating to skin, however Medik8’s Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula evenly and slowly throughout the night. This reduces any potential for irritation or redness. The intense serum also uses a high percentage of squalane; an exceptional moisturiser carefully selected to help counteract any dryness caused by retinol.
0.6% Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to visibly plump and refine the skin for a more youthful looking complexion; leaving skin even-toned and youthful-looking.
Climbazole – Climbazole has been found to boost the activity of retinoids in the skin to give the power of higher percentages without the irritation.
Squalane – A natural emollient, squalane helps to restore the skin’s natural defence barrier while deeply hydrating the skin.
Vitamin E – An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin whilst stabilising retinol for optimal power.
