Alt-Retinol Paste The Results

Bidens Pilosa

BIDENS PILOSA
(Also known as Spanish needles)

A plant extract derived from a relative of the daisy family, Bidens pilosa works by mimicking retinol’s mechanism of action, helping to reduce the appearance of common signs of skin ageing. By adopting similar action to retinol, it targets areas prone to loss of firmness and plumpness, providing impressive results in smoothing the appearance of wrinkles but with minimal side effects.

Kigelia Fruit Extract

KIGELIA FRUIT EXTRACT
(Kigelia Africana)

Renowned for its skin-plumping benefits, which leaves skin feeling supple, we responsibly source our organic-certified kigelia fruit extract from Zimbabwe. Here, the supplier’s focus is on generating income for rural communities through the sustainable and equitable harvesting and processing of wild growing plant products.

Shea Butter

SHEA BUTTER
(Butyrospermum parkii)

Renowned for its excellent emollient properties and ability to help improve the barrier function of the skin, we source our shea butter from West Africa, where the pulp of the fruit is removed to reveal the kernel, which is boiled and dried in the sun before being shelled for pressing.

Carrot Seed Oil

CARROT SEED OIL
(Daucus carota sativa)

Rich in ‘carotenoids’, carrot seed oil can help support an even, healthy-looking skin tone and visibly brighten the appearance of skin when applied topically as part of a skincare formula. It’s this ingredient that gives Superskin™ Alt-Retinol Skin Paste a distinctive golden hue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels good I have only used this 6 times but find if you warm the cream up between your fingers, and only use a small amount, it goes on well and soon sinks in without feeling too sticky. Too early yet to say if it improves my skin in looks, but it certainly feels good the next morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Systems Glow! I've been using this 3 times a week for the last 2 weeks, and I had reservations at first because my skin is menopausal and as dry as the Sahara, so I feared that it may cause dryness or it just wouldn't be moisturising enough using it on it's own with no oil/serum underneath. But, it's super moisturising,really easily absorbed, doesn't come off on your pillow and after 2 weeks I can see a difference; there is a glow, looks brighter and it does look 'plumped out'. I can't see a difference in pigmentations or lines, but maybe I will with continued use?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I only used this for the first time last night, read the instructions first so cleaned and polished, added the gel drops then used some of this paste. It says to use not too much and it will soak in, which it did. This morning my skin feels so much more hydrated and smoother so I will continue to use this 2-3 times per week as suggested.

I have the paste and booster do I use both together or at different days 

Asked by: NicolaR
Hello, thank you for getting in touch and we’re delighted to hear you have both our Superskin Alt-Retinol products, we’re confident you’ll adore them both as much as we do. We would recommend using the Alt-Retinol Booster as part of your morning routine, after cleansing and toning. Applying directly on any areas showing the signs of aging for targeted results or opt to mix a single drop into your chosen moisturiser in the palm of your hands. We would recommend on alternate days to your Superskin Alt- Retinol Paste to use the Boosters as part of your evening routines too. Please note we would recommend using the Superskin Alt-Retinol Paste as part of your evening routine 2-3 times a week only in place of your evening moisturiser.   We hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Can I use this if I'm pregnant? Usual retinol is recommended to be avoided.

Asked by: Kelnel
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. We can confirm that there is no retinol in our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster or Superskin Alt-Retinol overnight paste, both formulations contain a gentle retinol alternative which mimics a retinol-like action, while being kind to the skin. All our product, including both Superskin Alt-Retinol products have been safety assessed to ensure they are safe for intended use, which includes use during pregnancy – however, if you have any specific questions or concerns we would recommend speaking to your GP or midwife. We hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Hi, do I need to use a sunscreen after using alt retinol?

Asked by: Karen b
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. We recommend wearing an SPF product every day all year round (our Environmental Defence Cream Mineral SPF 25 is great for providing everyday protection). However, our Alt-Retinol range does not increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun like some traditional retinols, so it is not absolutely required. We hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913 if we can be of any further assistance. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

How do the effects of using Superskin Alt-Retinol Skin Paste differ from using CICA Restore Skin Paste?

Asked by: Lyn18
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. Both our Superskin Alt-Retinol Skin Paste and CICA Restore Skin Paste, are overnight masks which can be used as part of your night-time skincare routine 2-3 times a week, after cleansing and toning. They both deliver different skincare benefits, so we recommend alternating the two when your skin needs. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol Skin is made with highly effective retinol alternative, helping to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, leaves skin feeling supple, refreshing its appearance for a brighter, plumped, radiant-looking complexion, while also refining the look of pores Whereas, our CICA Restore Skin Paste has been formulated with a gentle but powerful combination of naturally active ingredients to visibly improve the appearance of imperfections overnight leaving the skin looking healthy, soothed and comforted, while providing 48 hours of intense hydration. You would apply them in the same way; apply a thin layer onto your face, avoiding the delicate eye area. The paste will slowly disappear as your skin absorbs the product. Please note with the Alt-Retinol Skin Paste the correct amount should leave you with a golden glow, before sinking into the skin. Leave on overnight and wash off with your morning cleanse. I do hope this information helps. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

How would this fit into my routine with superskin overnight mask? I only use this sometimes other times I just use my superskin moisturiser at night.  I am 51 years of age with combination skin, starting to see some deeper lines and slackening. 

Asked by: Liz51
Thankyou for your question. We love our Superskin Overnight Mask as it is a perfect overnight treatment targeting fine lines and wrinkles with the powerful blend of pomegranate flower extract and other potent botanical ingredients, however, if you are experiencing deeper lines then we would recommend our new Alt-Retinol Overnight Paste. This amazing new product boasts a fantastic blend of Bidens Pilosa which mimics the mechanism of retinol, smoothing the skin and appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles, organically certified Kigelia that leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple and Carrot Seed Oil to brighten the appearance of your skin, providing your with a healthy-looking glow. We have also included Hyaluronic Acid, also found in our Skin Repair Moisturiser, as this naturally occurring sugar helps to lump and hydrate your skin. Our Overnight Paste can be used as part of your nighttime skincare routine in place of your moisturiser 2-3 times a week or whenever your skin feels in need, and can be alternated with our Superskin Overnight Mask so your skin can continue to feel the full benefit of our amazing naturally active ingredients.
