Kate Middleton reportedly swears by this beauty product that is said to be an alternative to Botox
Although Botox injections have been touted as a quick fix in helping reduce wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles, they can get pretty pricey. Injections usually go for several hundred dollars. However, Kate Middleton may have the secret to a cheaper, yet effective temporary solution to wrinkles.
Biotulin's site says that their Supreme Skin Gel gel contains a local anesthetic called spilanthol that produces similar results to Botox, but is applied to the skin like a lotion. It's said to work within 60 minutes and last up to 24 hours. The site also claims that unlike injections, the gel does not numb your face or restrict facial expressions.
Other famous fans of the gel are said to be Michelle Obama, Madonna, Queen Letizia of Spain and Kim Kardashian. In 2015, Kardashian actually bought the US licensing rights for the product.
The gel, however, doesn't come without controversy. According to Doris Day, a dermatologist in New York City who spoke with Allure, there's not a lot of evidence or specific data to back up the claim that spilanthol actually acts as a muscle relaxant. Although other ingredients like blady grass and hyaluron could be moisturizing.
Still down to give it a try? You can find Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel on Amazon starting at $109. Only a small drop is required, so although the price isn't exactly cheap, the bottle should last you a while.
