WHAT MAKES THE BLOOM SERUM SO AWESOME:
Nobody wants the largest organ in their body (our skin!) to be filled with pollutants, irritants, and dirt! Detoxing your skin is one of the best things you can do for it (next to trashing harsh chemical based products!). If you haven’t done a full detox yet, check out my Detox Kit.
This serum helps boost the detoxifying powers of all my products – especially when used in conjunction with the Detox Kit! The Bloom serum is made with ingredients that purify your skin and helps balance the production of your sebum (your skin’s natural oil). Additionally, the ingredients in this serum are protective, toning, regenerating, protect against free radicals (hello anti-oxidants!), contain vitamin A & E, and helps prevent the growth of/destroys bacteria (super important when detoxing as the first stage of clearing up moderate to severe acne!).
IN A NUTSHELL:
- Provides detox support for the skin
- Works as a booster for Detox Kit
- Purifies your pores
- Helps balance sebum production
- Protects against free radicals
- Kills acne causing bacteria
- Improves skin tone and texture thanks to antioxidants
- 100% natural
BUT I ALREADY USE A MOISTURIZER! WHY ADD A SERUM?
I don’t believe in adding more products into your skin care routine then needed, so you might be wondering why I’ve added serums to my line!
First off, I use them all the time! Why? Because serums are liquid tonics that are packed with vitamins, anti-oxidants and natural ingredients that contain active properties that target specific concerns. So if there’s something specific you want to work on, serums are an easy way to add some extra oomph to your routine!
Secondly, serums are formulated to penetrate deep into your skin so they can heal and target specific concerns. They are able to penetrate deeper than moisturizers and can help restore skin to a balanced state (and isn’t that the point?). Plus, they are non-comedogenic, so no need to worry about clogged pores or a greasy residue.
Although serums can be hydrating (my Hydration Serum is designed to do just that!), their main purpose is to add nutrients deep into your skin that a moisturizer isn’t able to reach. However, keep your moisturizer in your routine! Applying your moisturizer after you apply a serum will lock the serum into your skin allowing the serum to do its best work without evaporating into the air.
HOW TO USE SERUMS:
- Apply your serum after applying your mist (if you’re using one), and before your moisturizer. While moisturizers help lock serums into your skin, serums help lock mists into your skin! You don’t have to wait for the mist to fully absorb before applying your serum. But you should wait a few minutes between applying your serum and moisturizer.
- Apply any time after you wash your face
- Since serums are hydrating, they can be a great alternative to a thick moisturizer during the hottest most humid days of summer! Skip the moisturizer during the day and opt to use it at night instead.
- During the winter, our skin needs extra help staying hydrated and protected from the elements. So, layer-up your protection by using a mist, serum and moisturizer before heading out into the cold (or spending a lot of time in the dry indoor air!).

I purchased the bloom serum to complement the detox kit, as I have fairly dry skin. I'm always a little timid to try new products as my skin is very sensitive. This product has not disappointed me. I use it particularly after using the dry clay mask when my skin feels a little more dry than usual. When I was using as part of the kit, I did apply it pretty much nightly before applying the priming moisturizer. However, now that I'm done with the kit, I sometimes add a few drops to my moisturizer - epitome of lazy I think. This serum feels amazing on your freshly cleansed skin and definitely complements the detox kit is the best of ways. I highly recommend this product! #battyforbattys
If you're in to earthy smells, this product will not disappoint in that department. Quite frankly, I don't find that it disappoints in any department. I love the fact that this product helps clear out my skin of all the crap that's been hanging around. It applies on oily, but the next day... Man. My skin always seems better in the morning after using this product. I would re-buy this in an instant!
I ordered the serum along with the Detox Skin Care Kit. I was not disappointed at all. The serum smells really good. Even though the serum leaves oily feeling on my face, my skin feels a lot smoother the next day. I will continue using the serum along with the kit and recommend the brand to my family and friends. Thank you Batty for making these awesome products!
It is oily (being that it is made of oils...), after a lot of researching and experience, our skin needs oil. I have read about people using just olive oil to clean their skin many years ago. I'm not going to use olive oil, but the Bloom Serum is all around healthy oils! Our skin is going to produce oil no matter what, why not apply healthy oils that help our skin and support it? One of the reasons for wrinkles and skin damage is lack of moisture and oil to keep the skin plump (so to speak). Don't be afraid to use this. I have oil build up on just my nose and after using the Bloom Serum it has regulated the production of oil- allowing my skin to relax and not over compensate by producing so much oil after using harsh facial soaps that dried out my face.
At first I was a little apprehensive about putting an oil on my already acne prone skin, but I read Batty's explanation for the use of this serum and its benefits I wanted to give it a try and I have noticed an improvement in the overall appearance of my skin since using this serum. Since I was completely new to natural skin care when I first purchased Batty's products a few months ago I started with the detox kit, and I am still working on clearing my pores of 30-some years of toxins (20 of that wearing makeup almost daily). Since the pores in my t-zone are still a little clogged my skin isn't as absorbent as it should be yet - so what I do is, after washing my face in the a.m. with the charcoal soap (or after using the clay mask) I apply this serum, wait about 5-10 minutes, then lightly blot my t-zone to pick up any serum that wasn't absorbed so my face doesn't end up feeling oily - then apply my detox moisturizer. My skin is a work in progress still - but I have noticed a HUGE improvement since using Batty's products! My skin tone has evened out, my skin is more balanced, and the only area that breaks out with any regularity is my chin - usually from stress and hormones - and even that doesn't break out as often or as bad as it used to.
