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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I started using this in May and I can see and feel a difference. It is lovely to apply and makes my skin feel like it has an extra layer of care and protection. You only need a couple of drops!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super skin Booster !! I have tried this retinal booster at night but found my skin went very red. I love the cream I buy and it make my skin feel smooth and fresh. I will give the booster a try again though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using Alt-Retinol Booster for nearly a year and it’s a great product. I mix it with the Light Cream morning and night and it simply glides onto your skin and is absorbed really quickly without leaving any stickiness. Having used Clarins for 20yrs I find this better because it’s lighter and my wrinkles haven’t got any worse in fact eye wrinkles have improved with eye cream from Liz Earle collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product. expensive for such a small bottle This is my 2nd bottle & would definitely recommend this product made a definite & instant improvement to my skin. However my 1st bottle was part of a gift & I was unaware of the price & assumed the bottle was a travel size. It’s a small bottle & I feel it’s a bit expensive for the size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not convinced this product has worked for me yet My first time of using this product. My main concern is the colour of the glass bottle you are unable to see how much of the product is left. I did use as instructed however it does not indicate either how long this product normally lasts if following the instructions of use age. My bottle lasted just over one month. I can not comment on if the products has actually made any difference to my face as you need to use the product for at least three months to notice any change in your skin.

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: https://www.lizearle.com/skincare/shop-by-collection/superskin/F33302.html . 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: https://www.lizearle.com/skincare/our-range/exfoliator-and-masks/F33365.html . 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.

Hi can I use the alt-retinol during summer time as well? Can I use in vitamin c in the night and the serum during the day or it is too strong?

Asked by: Marzia
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We knew that many of our customers were interested in the idea of retinol but were worried about the well-documented irritating side effects. As a botanical brand, we made it our mission to create a cruelty free, naturally derived gentle alternative, harnessing botanical ingredients that mimic the skin smoothing benefits while also being suitable for sensitive skin. With its youthful-looking results Alt-Retinol was a perfect fit for our pro-ageing Superskin™ range; helping support your skin at every age and life stage. As our Alt-Retinol products do not contain retinol, they can be used all year round and in conjunction with the rest of your skincare regime. We do hope this helps. - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

Can I use hyaluronic acid after the drops and before moisturiser?  

Asked by: Beth12329
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We haven't tested our products for use alongside hyaluronic acid, however, our Alt-Retinol products are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive. Both products are formulated with natural retinol alternatives and designed to be gentle on the skin - just like our moisturisers. I do hope this helps! - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team
