With only 2 cream products plus a cleanser, this is the easiest way to get started with our CSA strategy. Featuring Surface Radiance Cleanse™, Daily Radiance Vitamin C™ and Night Ritual Vitamin A™
Now:The ultimate plant-based, anti-ageing alternative for vitamin A. Designed to help promote a more youthful complexion, the lightweight, oil-based serum harnesses the gentle power of 1.25% pure bakuchiol. A clinically proven alternative to retinol that is ideal for those that can’t use vitamin A - eg when pregnant or nursing* as it is not recommended during this time. Bakuchiol Peptides is enhanced with brightening peptide precursors, which help to maintain a glowing, even complexion. The lilac-hued formula is also infused with cica (centella asiatica), an ingredient perfect for soothing inflamed, sensitive skin. Photostable, Bakuchiol Peptides can be used both day and night, for accelerated visible anti-ageing results. Perfect for those looking for a substitute for vitamin A in their CSA routines. *Of course, due to ethical considerations the Bakuchiol Peptides formula has not been tested on pregnant women, but there is nothing in the formula which is known to be an issue (eg vitamin A or high levels of exfoliating acids). If you are at all concerned, always consult your doctor. Bakuchiol & Pregnancy While applying vitamin A topically in skincare hasn’t been shown to cause problems in pregnancy or breastfeeding, as very little gets absorbed into the body through the skin, doctors (and Medik8) recommend avoiding, just in case, due to the known risks of high-dose vitamin A ingestion. Bakuchiol on the other hand, has been shown to have retinol-like effects but does not have the same mechanism of action as vitamin A so there is no real reason to link the two. We cannot find any documented evidence as to why Bakuchiol should be avoided during pregnancy, and we happily recommend it on that basis. Many experts including doctors and other brands are stating that bakuchiol is perfectly safe in pregnancy. As most cosmetic ingredients are untested on pregnant women, there is no way of definitively saying anything is specifically ‘safe for pregnancy’ which is why we do not more boldly state “safe for pregnancy”.
Now:Sometimes life gets in the way of perfect skin. Lack of sleep, poor diet, alcohol, stress, hormones and the list goes on. Everything and anything can affect your skin; leaving it blemish-prone and dull. That’s where Clarity Peptides comes in as a skin perfecting peptide complex to help enhance your skin’s natural luminosity. It contains three potent actives: 10% niacinamide which calms and soothes redness, blotchy skin and blemishes, Crystalide peptide which adds light reflection for a translucent skin effect, and zinc PCA that minimises sebum production and balances skin bacteria to tackle blemishes. Achieve visibly perfected, luminous skin when you need it most.
Now:Harness the power of Medik8’s original best-selling C-Tetra serum in a silky, nourishing cream. This daily antioxidant cream uses 100% stable vitamin C and vitamin E to prevent free radical damage. It’s perfect for shielding the skin against environmental stressors, such as pollution and UV exposure, that cause premature skin ageing. The fast-absorbing formula helps to maintain skin health, improve uneven skin tone and restore radiance. Using a lipid-soluble form of vitamin C, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, the formula is able to deeply penetrate the skin, providing powerful antioxidant protection with minimal irritation. With uplifting natural citrus notes, C-Tetra Cream® energises skin while deeply hydrating for a bright, dewy complexion.

This multitasking balm infuses the under eye area with hydration while instantly refreshing for a bright, wide awake look. Enriched with multi-weight hyaluronic acid and glycerin, true moisture is drawn into the delicate eye area, smoothing the appearance of fine, dehydration lines. The appearance of the under eye area is visibly illuminated and skin texture is smoothed.
