Can a Serum REALLY Mimic the Effects of Botox?

Tata Harper has plump, youthful-looking, stare-inducing skin. Her skin is so luminous, it's difficult to concentrate on the words that are coming out of her mouth. Recently, Beauty Wonkette had a front row seat as Harper was explaining the active, all-natural ingredients (completely devoid of synthetics) in her latest set of skin-care products.  Despite the fact that Beauty Wonkette's mama told her not to stare, all Beauty Wonkette could do was stare at her seriously glowing, wrinkle-free, even-toned complexion. BW seriously had to sit on her hands because she had this weird impulse to reach out and touch it.  Beauty Wonkette DOES have some self control, however.  So, instead, we took a sample of her Boosted Contouring Serum, the first to launch in a new trio of serums (the others will debut next month) and slathered it all over our face for three days.
