Many celebrities have mastered the art of anti-aging, but perhaps none as well as Jennifer Lopez. The actress, musician and entrepreneur has essentially looked the same since her ’00s “Jenny From The Block” days. Of course, this would lead people everywhere to want to know her beauty secrets

Constant tours, speaking engagements, campaigns, a Super Bowl performance, a wedding and whatever else would probably take its toll on anyone. From long nights to early mornings, we what happens when we’re not catching our beauty sleep: baggy, dark circles under our eyes.

So what is Lopez’s secret? The Bronx-born icon’s makeup guru, Scott Barnes, has shouted out the product he uses to help keep J.Lo’s eyes dark-circle free: Biotulin’s EyeMATRIX eye cream.

Barnes previously said, “Her beautiful eyes, free from dark circles and bags under the eyes, have EyeMATRIX from Biotulin to thank: An eye cream that uses cannabis Sativa seed oil and the bio-Botox active ingredient Biotulin.”

What is Biotulin? Some call it the non-injectable ‘organic Botox’, which can sound a bit intriguing if you’re into cosmetic procedures but leery of the process. Biotulin is an organic, transparent and fast-acting gel, which is rumored to also have fans including Michelle Obama, Madonna and Kate Middleton, who turn to the ingredient as a natural alternative to fillers and Botox. 

According to the brand’s website, one of the main ingredients of Biotulin is spilanthol, a local anesthetic extracted from the Acmella oleracea plant (paracress). The natural ingredient reduces muscle contractions and relaxes facial features, helping small wrinkles to virtually disappear, especially those around the eyes and between the eyebrows, in as little as 60 minutes.

Unlike Botox, however, the product does not alter or restrict facial expressions or cause any side effects.

Also in the mixture is one of our skincare holy-grail ingredients, hyaluronic acid, which adds additional fullness and plumpness to the skin, resulting in a tightened, youthful appearance. 

One five-star reviewer wrote, “Normally my skin gets quite easily irritated, but not with this product. Once you apply it, it feels like your skin gets tighter. I love this feeling!”

Another reviewer noted that this product was good even if one doesn’t have wrinkles. “I don’t have wrinkles or crows feet to fix. It just does something like tightens under the eyes and highlights my cheekbones.”

While many have sworn by this product, others have mentioned that their skin has felt drier and more irritated. One reviewer wrote, “I’ve been using this product for four days now, and my skin has gotten progressively drier and more irritated.”

Either way, be sure to do a patch test of the product before use. All we know is that we’re dedicated to looking young and youthful forever, just like Jennifer Lopez!
