Surface Radiance Cleanse (40ml)
Infused with an exfoliating blend of mandelic, lactic and salicylic acid, this uplifting citrus cleanser gently renews and purifies to uncover a visibly smooth, radiant complexion.
Daily Radiance Vitamin C (50ml)
Energise your skin each morning with Daily Radiance Vitamin C, a hydrating 2-in-1 vitamin C and SPF 30 cream with a light, cashmere texture. Leaves skin visibly brighter and evenly toned, with future skin ageing and sun-induced damage successfully kept at bay.
Night Ritual Vitamin A (50ml)
Crafted with 0.2% retinol in a cream format, Night Ritual Vitamin A is the perfect introduction to vitamin A. Ideal for combatting the first visible signs of ageing and improving the appearance of elasticity, the skin is left hydrated and visibly more youthful-looking.
How It Works
Surface Radiance Cleanse is infused with both AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) chemical exfoliators, to gently break down impurities and pore blockages across the complexion, deeply cleansing skin while sloughing off dead skin cells on the skin surface. The result? A visibly renewed, purified complexion with a brightened appearance.
Daily Radiance Vitamin C serves as the perfect introduction to Medik8’s CSA anti-ageing philosophy. Advanced, modern UV filters shield the complexion from harmful UVA and UVB rays, to protect from the signs of premature skin ageing. Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, stabilised vitamin C, acts as an antioxidant to protect the skin from environmental damage. Combined with co-antioxidant vitamin E, hydrating hyaluronic acid and glycerin, Daily Radiance Vitamin C works to protect and moisturise skin, ready for the day ahead.
Night Ritual Vitamin A is formulated with 0.2% retinol, well known as the classic form of vitamin A. When applied to the skin, retinol is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that instructs skin cells to produce proteins such as collagen and elastin, as well as working to increase the rate of skin cell turnover. This results in a visibly smoother, evenly-toned, youthful looking complexion. Time Release Technology gradually delivers the retinol overnight, gently smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Polymer encapsulation is used to protect the retinol, maintaining its stability and potency over time.
How To Use
Surface Radiance Cleanse
Start your anti-ageing skincare ritual by cleansing with Surface Radiance Cleanse both morning and night. Massage into moistened face and neck. For sensitive or dry skin, use once a day or whenever a deeper cleanse is required. Gently remove by splashing with water and pat face dry.
Daily Radiance Vitamin C
After cleansing in the morning, use the spatula to apply a liberal amount of Daily Radiance Vitamin C and blend evenly across face, neck and décolletage. Reapply throughout the day as needed.
Night Ritual Vitamin A
After cleansing in the evening, use the spatula to apply Night Ritual Vitamin A and blend evenly across face, neck and décolletage.
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
Exfoliating Acids (Surface Radiance Cleanse)
AHAs l-mandelic acid and l-lactic acid softly exfoliate the skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished complexion. Mandelic acid, in particular, is able to work on both the surface of the skin and within pores for a thorough yet gentle cleanse. BHA salicylic acid can decongest and exfoliate from within the pore, helping to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and blemishes.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Daily Radiance Vitamin C)
A lipid-soluble form of vitamin C that provides exceptional antioxidant protection from harmful free radicals, while helping to stimulate collagen production for a youthful-looking complexion.
Superior UV Filters (Daily Radiance Vitamin C)
A complex of sun filters carefully selected for their longevity, gentleness and power to protect the skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
0.2% Retinol (Night Ritual Vitamin A)
The classic form of vitamin A, retinol helps to enhance collagen levels and boost the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful.Full Ingredients
