Superskin™ Alt-Retinol Booster

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.

Alt-Retinol Booster The Results

Stevia Extract

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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Love this product, it's the second bottle I have purchased, a little goes along way. I add a drop to my moisturiser in the morning, and those fine lines are instantly softened. Skin is left looking hydrated. Definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Softer skin I received the alt-retinol booster as a freebie ages ago and finally got round to using it a month ago. I have now bought some. It has really improved my skin. It’s softer and the surface looks smoother. I’ve always suffered from large pores and I’m really pleased to have found something that actually does help

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational product!! I tried this as a sample and was impressed, but when I purchased the full size product nothing prepared me for the continued improvement in my skin, after only a few days! After a week my skin was definitely smoother and jus more “alive”. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle Have been using this for a while now and it’s fantastic. Does what it says on the bottle. It’s a lot better than the serum which I saw no results with.

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: Beth1776
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
