B-Bomb is non-drying and has a light, hydrating feel to it. We paid special attention to the texture of the product, so that it integrates well into routines with multiple layers. It has a thin gel consistency that does not pill and plays well with the other products in a well-rounded skincare routine. 

who is it for?

Pretty much anyone who is looking to add Niacinamide to their skincare routine. It is especially recommended for combination and oily skin.

how to use

Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing (+ toning and exfoliating), but before using emulsions and/or creams. Can be used either in the AM and/or PM. It can be used on its own, or you can add it to another product as a Niacinamide Booster e.g. your moisturizer or our HA 5 Serums - just put a few drops of each into your palm or apply a few drops of them directly to your face at the same time and pat them on together. Please do not add B-Bomb directly to acids, such as exfoliating acids or pure Vitamin C - you can use them in the same routine together layered on top of each other, but they don't mix well directly (e.g. in your palm). Shelf life: 2 years from production (unopened), 6 months PAO (period after opening)

Niacinamide (10%) – A multi-functional superstar that can normalize pores, soothe acne prone skin, improve the skin barrier and lighten hyperpigmentation.

Zinc PCA – A combination of antibacterial and sebum normalizing Zinc with the humectant molecule found in the skin called PCA (stands for pyrrolidone carboxylic acid). Zinc PCA has the property of both, meaning it is a gentle, non-drying ingredient known to help acne-prone and oily skin.

Love this product!

I love the texture of B-bomb. It isn’t sticky and doesn’t pill on the skin. The formulation is gentle. I love how this brightens and softens my skin. I am using this in my am routine after applying vitamin C and people have commented on the appearance of my skin.

Great for oily combination skin

I am 34yo with oily/combination and very tolerant skin and I have bought this product twice. The first time it was a holy grail for me. Using this product 3 times a day balanced the oiliness on my skin but also made my skin more receptive to moisturizers. My only concern is that it is 10% and many skin-related videos I have watched (including from dermatologists) say that the ideal percentage of Niacinamide is 5%. However I didn’t experience any negative effects using the B-Bomb so the product worked perfectly for me and my skin :) I repurchased this product a second time and even though I don’t use it 3 times a day like I did the first time (my skin feels so good and more balanced now), I use it only whenever I feel extra oily or before make up.

Half convinced so far

The consistency is quite sticky but it is well absorbed. I don’t seem to see any obvious results, it even seems to be counterproductive with the other products I use in my routine (salicylic acid, azelaic acid, etc). I’ll keep using it see if I notice any improvements
