Citrus-C Refresh Retinol + Vitamin C Multitasking Treatment

Citrus-C Refresh is a 2-in-1 Retinol + Vitamin C treatment serum delivers dermatologist-grade improvements in skin tone and texture, as well as fast, light hydration. Results continue to improve with continued use, with improvements accelerating in the third month and continuing over time.

Citrus-C Refresh is the perfect core treatment product for those seeking a bright, healthy complexion and who desire a proactive step to prevent the first signs of aging. If you have uneven skin tone from stress or lack of sleep, spend significant time outdoors, are prone to breakouts, or experience combination skin concerns like dry and oily patches, then you will love it!

This nutrient-rich, lightweight serum provides high-potency, pure Retinol up to 20x higher than department store brands. In addition, it features a professional skin-brightening complex with a dermatologist-grade Vitamin C that is far more bioavailable than traditional ascorbic acid. And it is packed with naturally derived Vitamin E and Omegas, pigment-rich carotenoids for radiance, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Hyaluronic Acid and skin-nourishing phytonutrients.

It beautifully restores skin balance and calms stressed skin, leaving behind a healthy glow and smooth matte finish. 60-90 day supply!


  • Brightens complexion
  • Evens and refines skin tone
  • Reduces look of post-acne marks
  • Nourishes healthy complexion
  • Smooths skin texture
  • Restores a soft, supple feel
  • Reduces the appearance of pores
  • Calms and soothes skin
  • Provides potent antioxidant protection


Citrus-C Refresh is not like traditional department store products, as it's dermatologist-grade and highly concentrated. So, a little goes a long way. Applying more than two pumps could cause irritation.

Key Ingredients

Pure, Activated Retinol (Vitamin A) is the most effective non-Rx retinoid. MD Complete's proprietary ingredient encapsulation technology makes it possible to use this high-potency Retinol without traditional irritation and drying. It is fortified with naturally derived nutrients to help improve the results and deliver your healthiest, most beautiful complexion.

Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Ascorbyl Palmitate) helps smooth and improve the texture of skin. MD Complete uses the more effective and more expensive variants of Vitamin C for the best penetration, bioavailability and results.

Vitamin E (Fruit Seed Extracts, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol) nourishes skin and works synergistically with Vitamin C for more refined skin tone and texture. MD Complete sources much harder-to-find extracts to ensure you receive harder working, healthy Tocotreinols.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B-3) improves the appearance of skin tone and texture. 

Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) helps plump and restore skin's natural hydration.

Fruit Seed Extracts (Black Cumin, Pumpkin, Tomato, Black Raspberry, Red Grape, Safflower, Sunflower) provide rich sources of naturally derived Vitamin Es, Omega 3-5-6-9s and potent antioxidants to support healthier looking and feeling skin.

How to Use

Use just 1-2 pumps of product per application. Best results are achieved with twice daily use.

For Sensitive Skin
Start by using the product every other day, as long as you don’t experience significant discomfort. Work up to daily use and gradually to twice daily use, if tolerated.

Prevent sun damage and protect your results by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30-50 each morning. Reapply throughout the day.

As with all skincare products, we recommend anyone pregnant or breastfeeding contacts a doctor before usage. Avoid contact with eyes.

even with acne, this product is great

I am 66 yrs old and still have acne, this feels like my skin is getting smoother

Like it

I really like this product. I use it and then I have to take it off sometimes because it leaves my fave looking a little yellow. But I like how my skin feels after using it. I just wish it didn’t leave that yellow residue sometimes.

4 stars

No major results on skin brightness. However I didn't have any breakouts this month after starting product so I'll call it a win.

Returning, loyal client

I have loved MD products. I got hooked several years ago on the Retinol C Concentrate, eye cream, and Wrinkle and Radiance Remedy. They really took care of the dark spots and dull complexion, as well as fine lines. Though as I got older, I developed redness on my parts of my cheeks. When this product was released, I decided to give it a try. I love it, it really controls the redness and inflammation, and reduced the size of my pores. I use it with the Vitamin C Vitalizing serum. It is true, a little goes a long way. I love the fresh citrus smell. I also love the price range for these products. Can't beat it. I use to use very expensive products, though never had any results they promised. MD Complete delivers everything it promise. I recommend this to everyone.

Excellent product

I purchased this to use along with the skin reset routine and after just one use, I can already see the difference. Smoother, more beautiful skin!

My skin is so clear!

Using this along with the purifying detox hydro boost and the retinol vitamin c concentrate has made my skin so clear, so soft, and so smooth!
