Superskin™ Alt-Retinol Booster 15ml

About these drops

Targets the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more youthful-looking skin. Our lightweight gel drops renew the appearance of the skin’s surface for a less fatigued, refreshed and more radiant looking complexion.


This powerful blend is enriched with stevia, a plant-based alternative to retinol that works by mimicking retinol’s mechanism of action whilst being kind to the skin, alongside elderberry extract used for its natural antioxidant properties, to help reduce the appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles. Skin is left feeling firmer and looking rejuvenated.


Not sure what our plant-based retinol alternative can do for your skin? Discover what retinol is and how our naturally derived ingredients can work similar magic without the side effects.

Alt-Retinol Booster The Results

Stevia Extract

(Stevia rebaudiana)

This naturally active ingredient – sourced from a relative of the chrysanthemum that grows in abundance in France – delivers a retinol-like action helping to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, for younger-looking skin. Traditionally used as a herbal medicine, stevia is renowned for the smoothing, wrinkle-softening power it has on the appearance of skin.

Elderberry Extract

(Sambucus nigra)

Elderberries are a rich source of bioflavonoids, which have antioxidant properties and help to brighten the appearance of skin and improve the look of skin tone. We source ours from Poland, handpicked on land protected to support biodiversity.

Aqua (water), Glycerin, Propanediol, Sambucus nigra (elderberry) fruit extract, Xanthan gum, Kappaphycus alvarezii (red algae) extract, Stevia rebaudiana leaf/stem extract, Caesalpinia spinosa fruit extract, Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium benzoate, Citric acid, Benzyl alcohol, Dehydroacetic acid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bit Runny When i first used it, seemed to have a strange smell, but after a few uses either disappeared or i got use to it. It is a bit runny. I use it during my night time routine. Early days, no major problems. Each to their own

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought this a few weeks ago as I was looking for a natural alternative to retinol. I absolutely love how it feels on my skin! I mix one pipette drop to the Skin Repair Light Cream and leave overnight. My skin feels so much softer and fresh with the addition of the booster. Would definitely recommend. Only downside is the product bottle is very small, so not sure how long it will last but as I have quite sensitive skin using one drop with the skin repair cream goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite booster I discovered this product 2 years ago and continue to buy it whenever I can, as it gives my skin that boost needed to hold back fine and deep lines. It works so much gentler than retinol, without the disadvantages. I will continue to use it on its own or mixed in with my moisturiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth I added this to my morning moisturiser routine, and it has improved the feel of my facial skin. It feels smoother, and I think not so patchy- looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great booster for dry sensitive skin I've used this product as a weekly booster for ages. It gives a lovely feel and plumps my skin without feeling greasy. I use it after I've had a shower and let it sink in before using serum and moisturiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help for fine lines. A lovely product for fine lines. I one drop under my moisturiser, each morning, although it can also be dropped into the moisturiser. I would say I have seen a difference in my skin since beginning to use.

Since using the superskin alt retinol booster the blackheads on my nose are more prominent and popping out. Do I need to stop using this, advice is gratefully appreciated, thanks 

Asked by: annie330
Hi, I love this alt retinol booster. It has made such a difference to my skin. I am a little prone to blackheads on my nose at times so I don’t use this on my nose at all and I’m very sparing with moisturiser too. Hope this helps you 💖

I’ve mixed the Alt-Retinol Booster with Revitalise & Glow over summer but now want to incorporate the Superskin Face Serum into my routine. Can I mix the booster with the serum, or do I need to stick to mixing it with moisturiser?

Asked by: Katie147
Hi, i mixed the booster with the serum, I preferred the texture of the two mixed together, I found it easier to massage into my skin without dragging it

Hi can I use this at night with the concentrate oil aswell 

Asked by: Yass
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster can be used along side our Superskin Concentrate for Night. You would apply the Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster after your cleanser and tonic, but before the Superskin Concentrate for Night. We hope this information helps - The Customer Care Centre Team

Does the retinol booster/paste help with acne or acne scarring?

Asked by: Bec07
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol products have not been designed to help with pigmentation or scarring, and instead to help with lines, wrinkles and refine pores. It may help to know that Rosehip Oil has visibly regenerative properties. It’s the most effective plant oil for skin repair and restoration. Clinical studies have proven its ability to soften scars, reduce 'age' pigmentation spots and patches and improve the appearance of fine surface lines. You may wish to use our Superskin concentrate for Night 2-3 times a week. This is 100% pure plant oils and is a rich, restoring night-time treat for all skin types. It contains softening argan and rosehip oils, soothing neroli, lavender and chamomile essential oils plus antioxidant natural source Vitamin E. You can read more about it here: . We would also recommend CICA Restore Skin Paste which contains the plant CICA known for its restorative properties, to help with redness and scarring, you can read more about it here: . We hope this information helps. – The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team.

Would I use the Alt-Retinol Booster before or instead of my usual skin oil (I use oils in preference to moisturisers)?

Asked by: Rubyn21
Thank you for your question. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol Boosters are ideal for anyone who is looking to refine the look of pores, looking for supple and refreshed skin and reduce signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles. Many oils are great for hydrating the skin, so we would recommend using them both alongside each other. The Boosters are water based and have been designed to use before your moisturiser or to be mixed with it. We would recommend using the booster before your current oil you are using rather than mixing them due to the textures not blending as good as a cream-based product. 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.
