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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a jar So so impressed with how quickly this worked on my skin, I have a mottled dark patch on my forehead and it started to fade within a week of use, fine lines around my eyes have smoothed too. Definitely another Liz Earle product added to my routine. Highly recommend Thank you Liz Earle x

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sadly not for me. I'm glad I tried this, wasn't sure if it would be too much for my sensitive skin but hoped it would be ok as it says its gentle and ok for skintypes such as mine. Unfortunately it aggravated a tiny patch of dermatitis that I have and my nose got very dry. I feel like it would be great for hardier less sensitive skins. I love that it was fragrance free though, as I prefer skincare without and feel it doesn't suit my skin- for example the new skin repair is way too fragrance for me and really irritates my skin. I hope Liz Earle stop putting so much fragrance in the skincare, whether it's natural or not, as its not all beneficial- some people enjoy it and their skin doesn't react but I can't be the only only whose skin doesn't like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feel good product. I’ve introduced the alt retinol drops to my daily routine and I must admit, it has made a difference in my skin. I use a drop mixed with my moisturiser in the morning, followed by the spf tinted moisturiser - my skin has improved in terms of smoothness and has evened out my complexion, which has made me happy. Has no smell to it and it’s very fast absorbing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely feel and texture Tried this as other retinol products are harsh on my skin and I always break out in dry patches after. This product did not disappoint, lovely and smooth and rich. Made my skin feel lovely and its great and versatile that it can be used directly on skin or mixed with moisturer. I will continue using this and hope results live up to my initial thoughts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treat I have used this for about a month every day along with the paste which I use alternate nights. At first I thought it would make no difference, but now, although the little lines on my cheeks are still there they are not so evident and my cheeks feel and look pumper. Its a gorgeous product and I feel pampered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This! So glad I tried this. It has definitely improved the look of my skin. One drop mixed in with my superskin moisturiser morning and night is all you need. It’s light and doesn’t make the skin feel sticky or clogged. It smells lovely too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Been using this product for two weeks, and have seen immediate results. The fine lines have softened, and my skin looks radiant. One drop of the booster goes along way, and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. In the morning, I pop the LE facial serum on top. It's fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! This product is truly amazing! The drops absorb really quickly so it's so easy to use them under other products. My skin feels and looks better after just 3 weeks. I have very challenging Rosacea and I can still use these drops with no issues, which is very important for me. I can't praise them enough and highly recommend :-).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Having bought Liz Earle for a number of years this is the first product that I have bought and been disappointed with. It is very thick when targeting specific areas and I can honestly say there is no visible signs of any improvement. Definitely not worth the hype.

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

Which product would I be able to use on wrinkles around my eyes and on my eyelids please?

I use the the Retinol Booster every morning before my usual serum and moisturiser routine. At night I always use the Superskin Concentrate and add the Booster a few minutes beforehand allowing it to be absorbed.. Is this the correct procedure?

Asked by: Female actor
I follow the same routine as you indicate and have to say the Retinol Booster seems to be working really well. I have had a dry patch on my forehead for ages and use of the Booster is reducing the dry patch. At night I use my rich cream moisturiser with two drops of booster added. Of course everyone soon is different it what feel right for you.

What product is good for upper lip wrinkles? I use cleanse and polish, toner and moisturiser.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi. thanks for getting in touch. Our new Alt-Retinol Booster Drops will certainly help with this. Powered by plants, this product does not contain retinol, so is gentle on the skin whilst helping with the appearance of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. This can be used daily as part of your routine. Apply 2 - 3 drops after you've cleansed and toned, before you moisturise. Just avoid the delicate eye area. Also, as with all our products, please carry out a patch test first. I hope this helps, but should you require any further assistance, please contact our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913, or email naturallyactive@lizearle.com - The Liz Earle Beauty Co. Team

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.
