Geek & Gorgeous B-Bomb
Geek & Gorgeous B-Bomb is a light and hydrating 10% Niacinamide (aka Vitamin B3), Zinc PCA and Sarcosine formula to help combination-skin related problems, such as enlarged pores, oiliness, and blemishes.
Why We Love It
This serum offers hydration as well as targeting congestion and enlarged pores. It's great to have the added benefit of Sarcosine alongside the much-loved pairing of Zinc and B3!
Niacinamide is a multi-functional superstar ingredient that can normalize pores, soothe acne-prone skin, improve the skin barrier and even lighten hyperpigmentation. This formula contains a whopping 10%, ideal to improve the appearance of acne and blemish-prone skin.
To further enhance Niacinamide's already awesome problem solving skills, we have included Zinc PCA and Sarcosine, both known to help enlarged pores, oiliness and blemishes.
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.
Fungal acne (Malassezia) safe.
Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing, toning and/or exfoliating. Can be used either in the AM and/or PM.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply 2-3 drops with fingertips. It can be used on its own, or you can also add it to another product as a Niacinamide Booster.
Other serums, emulsions, creams, oils and sunscreen.
Geek & Gorgeous advises: do not add it to direct acids, such as exfoliating acids or pure Vitamin C.

THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS
Vitamin B3; A multi-functional superstar that can normalise pores, soothe acne prone skin, improve the skin barrier and lighten hyperpigmentation.
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.
An amino-acid derived ingredient that works as a so called 5α-reductase inhibitor helping to normalize oil-production and pore size.
