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 This booster is amazing! I bought the Superskin Alt- Retinol booster recently together with my usual daily routine with skin repair which also included the Superskin Alt-Retinol skin paste for a great price. What can I say? This booster is amazing. I have tried numerous products over the years professing to turn back time and improve skin wrinkles to no avail. This is awesome. You gently apply it to the problem areas and it dries quite quickly as you apply it leaving your skin feeling like it’s had a facelift! Admittedly it doesn’t remove all wrinkles but I have lots and it’s dramatically changed the look of my skin so it looks smoother and more healthier. Can’t recommend this product highly enough. If I’m doubt try it and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me Did not rate this at all. If I had bought from QVC I would have returned. Hate too give a bad review. I’ve used Liz Earle for years. The old products are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little drops of magic! I am very sceptical about products with great anti-ageing claims but the first time I used this I saw a visible difference and had to do a double-take when I looked in the mirror! I have a deep frown line that really bugs me; popped some alt-retinol on it and had overnight results … I could hardly see it in he morning! My new favourite product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really don't like it It's not what i was expecting. You need to put a lot on and it dries really quickly so you have to put some more on the places where it didn't reach in time and it has no smell. But if that's what it says on the packet then its just me and i wont be buying it again and i feel it was a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product ! I bought this about 3 weeks ago and have been using it every day. Absolutely love it! Makes my skin really smooth and reduces the visibility of pores leaving a finish so that I need not use a primer. I have even found I can get away without using my usual light foundation ….. so happy with this product and highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s made a real difference. I use this along with the moisturiser and am so happy with the difference it’s made. My skin had been quite dry and flakey sometimes but this has really nourished it. It looks a lot better now and make up goes on far more smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing for sensitive skin I’ve been using the alt-retinol serum for about 6 weeks. My skin is looking healthier and really suits my sensitive skin. Been using Liz Earle products for a year and my skin is so much better and less sensitive.

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.
