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 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing.... I was really looking forward to trying this, so started to use it as soon as it arrived. I've now been using it for exactly one month, morning and evening, and can honestly say it's not made any difference to my lines at all. I'm 62, and have a few around my mouth, which are quite unsightly, so was hoping for at least a bit of a softening, but no! I still have some to use and will keep going until it's all finished but I'm not really holding out any hope. Very disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have been using this for three weeks or more now but sadly have not seen any change or benefit whatsoever which is very disappointing as I always believe Liz Earle products to be reliable and reviews were good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too expensive One drop from the pipette wasn't enough which meant the bottle only lasted 2-3 weeks. The drops in themselves felt good on my skin and gave a temporary improvement in lines straight after application. I don't think they are value for money due to being too expensive for the amount in the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I love the Superskin range. It really makes my mature skin look smooth. This serum is the best! It really does smooth out lines on my face. Faint lines disappear and the deeper, sleep lines are much less defined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Early days but so far so good I've only been using this for a week so waiting patiently to see the full effect as I'm hoping it will help with a couple of new lines on my forehead. I initially used it morning and night but noticed a couple of very tiny pimples so have dropped it down to just morning while my skin gets used to it. My skin is looking noticeably more radiant and fresher (I'm also using the superskin serum)

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 Great product I have been using Alt-Retinol Booster for nearly a year and it’s a great product. I mix it with the Light Cream morning and night and it simply glides onto your skin and is absorbed really quickly without leaving any stickiness. Having used Clarins for 20yrs I find this better because it’s lighter and my wrinkles haven’t got any worse in fact eye wrinkles have improved with eye cream from Liz Earle collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not convinced this product has worked for me yet My first time of using this product. My main concern is the colour of the glass bottle you are unable to see how much of the product is left. I did use as instructed however it does not indicate either how long this product normally lasts if following the instructions of use age. My bottle lasted just over one month. I can not comment on if the products has actually made any difference to my face as you need to use the product for at least three months to notice any change in your skin.

I’ve mixed the Alt-Retinol Booster with Revitalise & Glow over summer but now want to incorporate the Superskin Face Serum into my routine. Can I mix the booster with the serum, or do I need to stick to mixing it with moisturiser?

Hi, i mixed the booster with the serum, I preferred the texture of the two mixed together, I found it easier to massage into my skin without dragging it

Hi can I use this at night with the concentrate oil aswell 

Asked by: Yass
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Our Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster can be used along side our Superskin Concentrate for Night. You would apply the Superskin Alt-Retinol Booster after your cleanser and tonic, but before the Superskin Concentrate for Night. We hope this information helps - The Customer Care Centre Team

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.
