This UK professional skincare brand caught our attention because of its serious anti-ageing claims. We decided to test out one of their bestsellers - Crystal Retinal Night Serum and here are our thoughts.
This serum contains retinal, which we learned is a much more stabile, effective and less irritating form of retinol, that claims to produce results faster than classic forms of retinol.
The price of this product varies depending on the strength you’re going with - Retinal 1 is more affordable and great for beginners, 3 is for more advanced users, and 6 and 10, the most expensive ones, are for serious retinol junkies.
Overall they are on the pricier side, but still reasonable considering what they claim to do - keep you looking youthful and wrinkle free, and even revert signs of ageing.
It comes with a pump and the packaging looks sleek and luxurious. The smell is pleasant and very mild.
The serum is creamy, non-greasy, fast absorbing, and feels very light on the skin, allowing other products to layer on top of it seamlessly.
We chose Retinal 3 and can say it’s very gentle, non-irritating and seriously effective! After a week we started noticing the skin was smoother, fine lines were gone, pores were smaller, and skin looked airbrushed.
We recommend using it sparingly - you’ll only need one pump for your face and neck, and this way one bottle will give you a lot of bang for your buck.
We definitely recommend this product and are curious to try more from this brand!
