This little bottle of magic comes with lofty claims, and is marketed as a "botox alternative in a bottle." The product is a soothing lotion, which aims to leave your skin looking refreshed and dewy fresh.

Back in 2015, the Telegraph reported that reality star and savvy business woman Kim Kardashian had acquired the rights to the product.

It's made with spilanthol, imperata cylindrical, and the hydration boosting hyaluronic acid - which is on its own, often touted as a non-invasive alternative to Botox. Biotulin is free from sulfates, parabens, silicones, fragrances, and GMOs - which may be an added interest to anyone who favors skin boosters minus those ingredients.

Spilanthol, the main skincare ingredient in the product, is a local anaesthetic that's made from the, "extract of the plant Acmella Oleracea (paracress), which reduces muscle contraction and thus relaxes the facial features." Biotulin claims that this ingredient helps to reduce small wrinkles - in particular those around the eye area. They also claim that it helps your skin become visibly smoother. 

Britain's Catherine, Princess of Wales arrives at Westminster Abbey in central London on May 6, 2023, ahead of the coronations of Britain's King Charles III and Britain's Camilla, Queen Consort. - The set-piece coronation is the first in Britain in 70 years, and only the second in history to be televised. Charles will be the 40th reigning monarch to be crowned at the central London church since King William I in 1066. Outside the UK, he is also king of 14 other Commonwealth countries, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Camilla, his second wife, will be crowned queen alongside him, and be known as Queen Camilla after the ceremony.

A study of 16 healthy adults published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, found thatspilanthol, AKA extracts of acmella oleracea, "formulated in an 'all-natural' emulsion serum can reduce the appearance of wrinkles within two weeks, says a new study that also supports the safety and stability of the serum."

To use Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel, you simply apply it to your face and neck at the beginning of your skincare routine and hopefully - reap the benefits of this product.

Kate Middleton's makeup and skincare products may not have been publicly confirmed by the royal but we must admit that this product, with all its claims, has certainly grabbed our attention.
