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.

 

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.

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.

ELDERBERRY EXTRACT

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 4 out of 5 by from Attractive bottle. On it’s own, I found this product made my skin feel a little too tight so much preferred using it added to my Liz Earle moisturiser. This made them both glide on easily and my skin feel nourished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results Been using alt.retinol for over two months now, blending one drop of it with a little Liz Earle light moisturiser in the palm of my hand . Swept it all over my face and what a difference in the softness of the skin (mature in my case). Wouldn’t be without it.

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

If I could only afford one of your alt-retionol products, would you recommend the paste or the booster for noticeable forehead lines? I'm in my mid thirties. Thank you!

Asked by: kt18
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! Our Superskin Alt-Retinol duo are both fab products! Our Alt-Retinol Booster is water-based and so will sink deeper into surface skin like a serum, to help tackle those deeper lines and wrinkles and should be applied prior to moisturiser. Our Alt-Retinol Skin Paste is a thicker overnight formulation that works on the upper layers of your skin really helping to plump and firm the skin. It might help you to know, that our Alt-Retinol duo are the complimentary gifts you would receive with this months Daily Routine Offer https://www.lizearle.com/offers/shop-all/MOCKSEP21SSM.html I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email naturallyactive@lizearle.com
