The beautifully hydrating cream leaves the complexion with an invisible protective shield ready for the day ahead. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, skin is infused with long-lasting hydration, with future signs of ageing kept at bay
Hydrating Rosemary Foam
A mild, rosemary-infused foaming wash that gently removes dirt, make-up and impurities, without unbalancing skin’s delicate moisture levels. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin, this ultra-gentle formula is lightweight yet extremely hydrating to leave skin feeling refreshed and glowing. Natural glycerine deeply moisturises skin while rosemary’s natural antioxidants prevent free radical damage, which can lead to premature skin ageing. The pH balanced formula is also free from sulphates and soaps which can be harsh on skin, to ensure you are left feeling fresh and hydrated and never tight
Lipid Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum
30ml / $82
Restore radiance and fight visible signs of ageing with C-Tetra, a super-light daily vitamin C serum. Antioxidant power is provided through vitamin C and E. Together, these actives help to combat sun and pollution-induced damage. The lightweight, uplifting formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as visibly brightening the complexion and balancing skin tone. Using a lipid-soluble form of vitamin C called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, the formula penetrates deep into skin to provide powerful antioxidant protection with minimal irritation.
Advanced 0.3% Vitamin A Serum
15ml / $75
Reveal a more youthful appearance with this lightweight Intelligent Retinol (vitamin A) serum. Designed to complement skin’s nightly regenerative cycle, Retinol 3TR™ resurfaces while you sleep to rejuvenate skin and restore radiance. Hailed as the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing, vitamin A improves skin texture, minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and balances uneven skin tone. Retinol also helps to decongest pores and regulate sebum production for a clearer looking complexion. Formulated with Time Release Technology, retinol is delivered gradually into the deeper layers of the skin throughout the night.
Liquid Rehydration Serum
30ml / $84
Infuse your skin with intense hydration and long-lasting moisture with Hydr8 B5, Medik8’s best-selling moisturising serum. Known for holding up to 1,000x its own weight in water, multi-weight hyaluronic acid draws and binds water from the atmosphere into the skin. Using an optimum blend of hyaluronic acid weights ensures skin is seriously moisturised from the deepest layers right up to the surface. Enriched with vitamin B5 to improve skin’s water retention and regeneration, skin is left plump and noticeably hydrated. The fast-absorbing, silky-smooth serum softens fine lines and wrinkles to leave skin supple, restored and nourished.

Tackle all visible signs of ageing around the eyes while deeply hydrating the delicate eye area. This multi-action anti-ageing eye serum helps to lift and shape the look of eye contours for an immediate well-rested look. With a complex of 5 age-defying peptides, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are reduced to create a bright-eyed awakening effect. At the same time, an anti-ageing protein complex helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce puffiness. The award-winning formula also utitlises hesperidin to minimise dark circles, plus natural glycerine to gently hydrate. Perfect for use under make-up, this is the ultimate lifting and firming eye treatment.
