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 Glowing results! I have been using this for 2 weeks and at first I used it every second day. I applied it directly on the deep wrinkles, but after watching Sarah Carr on Instagram, I decided to use it every day, 3 drops over my face and neck, before SuperSkin Serum. I must admit that I am impressed! The lines seem a little softer and my skin really does look brighter. I'm hoping that it may help reduce pigmentation, but maybe this will come with continued use.

Currently I use a toner, face serum and the superskin concentrate oil at night. Where/how would the alt-retinol booster fit into my current routine?

Asked by: Julkene
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. Our Superskin Face Serum is a firm favourite for helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and our new Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster is the perfect addition to your skincare routine if you have noticed deeper lines and wrinkles. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster can be used daily, by either applying 1-2 drops to clean, dry skin (after cleansing and toning) for a more targeted treatment, or it can also be mixed into your chosen moisturiser. Additionally, where this product is water based, like our Superskin Face Serum, you could use these as a combination to feel the full benefit of the Stevia which mimics a retinol-like action in our booster, as well as collagen boosting pomegranate flower extract which is included in our Face Serum, making this a great dynamic duo tackling both fine and deeper lines. (Cleanse, tone, booster, face serum - or mix serum and booster, followed by your chosen moisturiser). Alternatively, you can opt to use the Alt-Retinol Booster within your morning skincare routine, and we would recommend using the Superskin concentrate at night only. The water-based element of the Booster makes them tricky to mix together. 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.

With the alt-retinol products, do you need to wear sun protection like normal retinol?

Asked by: Liz sim
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.

Can i use this product on my neck as well as my face?

Asked by: Caroline54
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. Yes, you can most certainly apply the Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster on your face, neck and décolletage area. We would recommend to apply onto clean dry skin (after cleaning and toning) and you can use the booster in two ways. Use alone: Apply directly to any area showing signs of ageing for targeted results- Apply 1-2 drops into your hands, warm and smooth over the skin avoiding the eye area, then apply your moisturiser. Mix it: Mix 1-2 drops into your moisturiser and massage into the skin, avoiding the eye area. I do hope this information helps. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

Is this suitable for skin with Roseacea?

Asked by: Harley66
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. I can confirm our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster containing gentle retinol alternatives that mimic retinol-like action while being kind to the skin, making it suitable for even sensitive. However, whilst we do have a number of customers with skin conditions such as Rosacea commenting positive results, our products are not intended for medical use. There are no guarantees our range will suit everyone, as we don’t know what ingredients your skin may be sensitive to. Therefore we would highly recommend carrying out patch test the products before use, to make sure they are suitable for your skin. A small amount should be applied close to the area of intended use (behind the ear is ideal in this instance). If this product is not suitable for use, then you should immediately discontinue use and get in touch with us. We do hope this helps, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913, if you require any further information. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

How much retinol does the product contain as I’m worried my skin will react bad 

Asked by: Nick12
Hello, thank you for getting in touch. I can confirm there is no retinol in our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster or Superskin Alt-Retinol Overnight Paste, so the level is 0%. However, our formulations containing gentle retinol alternatives that mimic retinol-like action while being kind to the skin, making them both suitable for all skin types, even sensitive. Please be assured all of our products are formulated to be as mild and gentle as possible; however, we would always recommend you carry out a patch test prior to using any new skincare product for the first time. A small amount should be applied close to the area of intended use (behind the ear is ideal in this instance). Please be assured we have generous returns policy. If for any reason your purchase is not suitable for your use or you do not like, we are happy to exchange or refund within 60 days of you receiving your order, even after you've tried it. We feel this is beneficial to our customers as it gives you the opportunity to try the product for some time to decide if it is suitable for you before committing to your purchase. We do hope this helps, but please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre team on 01983 813913, if you require any further information. – Liz Earle Beauty Co.

How would this fit into my routine with the superskin serum? Should I expect to see better results than with superskin serum and superskin moisturiser? I’m 51 years of age with combination skin starting to have a few deeper lines and slackening. 

Asked by: Liz51
Thank you for your question. Superskin Face Serum is a firm favourite for helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and our new Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster is the perfect addition to your skincare routine if you have noticed deeper lines and wrinkles. We have used Stevia, grown in the Bordeaux region of France, as this mimics a retinol-like action, helping to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, for younger-looking skin. Combined with one of our favourite ingredients Kigelia, which is also found in our new Alt-Retinol Overnight Paste, and Elderberry Extract, this beautiful booster drop helps to brighten the skin and improve skin tone too. This product can be used daily, by either applying 1-2 drops to clean, dry skin for amore targeted treatment or alternatively it can also be mixed into your chosen moisturiser. As this product is water based, like our Superskin Face Serum, you could use these as a combination to feel the full benefit of the Stevia as well as the pomegranate flower extract, tackling both your fine and deeper lines.
