Considering how amazing Kate Middleton’s skin is, you’d be forgiven for thinking she might have dabbled with injectables. But it turns out the royal relies on an alternative to Botox and yep, you too can get your hands on it.
Now, it’s worth noting the Duchess of Sussex doesn’t exactly give a rundown to the public about her beauty routine. From her favourite shampoo to her wedding day fragrance, we rely on ‘insider sources’ to give us the scoop.
But this revelation has long been reported by a brand rep of the product itself, and we really don’t think they’d risk their reputation on a false claim. After all, nobody wants the Queen as an enemy and they would’ve shut down the rumour by now.
Alright, enough stalling. Here’s what you need to know about the serum…
Kate Middleton’s ‘Botox in a bottle’
The product in question is the Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel. Made in Germany, its key ingredient is spilanthol, which the brand claims to “naturally reduce muscle contractions and relax your features”.
The effects sound similar to the results of Botox, only no needles are necessary. It also contains more familiar ingredients known for hydrating and plumping the skin, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid.
Of course, getting skin like Kate Middleton doesn’t come cheap. The product retails on Amazon in Australia for $158. However, a round of Botox can cost you twice as much so it’s all about perspective.
The skin gel does also have a 4-star rating from over 1,500 reviews on the stockist website. So all signs point to it being effective for the majority who try it.
One satisfied customer wrote: “With its prologue use it smooths lines and wrinkles of expression. It is necessary to use it constantly, every two days apply once or twice a day. The results look very fast. I recommend it!”
Whereas others were underwhelmed: “Used it morning and night for over a week now without the slightest improvement in either wrinkles or skin texture. If anything skin looks less glowing than usual. What a waste of money I’ll be going back to my Ordinary skin care products.”
So like all products, the results can be different for everyone. But it’s been reported that Kate found it so impressive she even recommended it for her sister-in-law Meghan Markle’s skin care routine.
Celebrity fans of the serum also allegedly include Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian.
