A Practical Guide: How to Use Your Boom Favorites Together
Let us set the scene for you.
You just ordered a Boom Bag (Complete). You’re excited. Maybe you’re new to Boom and you want to try a little bit of everything. Maybe you’ve been a Boom fan for years—and now you’re ready to try it all.
Whatever the reason, you’re counting the days until your Boom Bag arrives.
Now it’s here. You open the package. You pull out the organic cotton makeup bag filled to the brim with your new Boom.
You look inside your makeup bag and you see…
Three Boomsticks: Color, Glimmer and Glo
Two moisturizers: Boomsilk and Boom Cotton
Two cleansers: Boom Clean and Boom Scrub
One serum: Boom Nectar
One facial oil: Boom Gold
Here comes the fun part… you get to experiment with everything in your Boom Bag. But where do you start? We have a few practical tips to help…
1. Start by Washing and Exfoliating
If you’re experimenting with any new makeup or skin care routine, it’s always a good idea to start with a fresh, clean face.
For that reason, we suggest washing your face with Boom Clean first. Boom Clean is a lightweight facial cleanser. It’s designed to remove makeup—and gently wash away any dirt and impurities from your skin.
It only takes a minute or two to wash your face with Boom Clean. Just squeeze a bit into your hand, massage it over your entire face, then wash it away with water. Simple.
When you’re done, we suggest giving your pores a little extra attention.
For that, you need to switch to Boom Scrub. To use Boom Scrub, apply it as a quick mask. Wait five minutes and then rinse. That’s it. You’ll see cleaner, tighter-looking pores and fresh-looking exfoliated skin.
2. Gold vs. Nectar: How to Use Both
Washed and exfoliated? Great. Time to moisturize.
If you ordered a Boom Bag (Complete), you have two of our most advanced moisturizers—Boom Gold and Boom Nectar.
Boom Gold is a lightweight facial oil, and Boom Nectar is a thicker robust serum. Both are designed to hydrate, nourish and revitalize the delicate skin on your face and neck.
These two are fantastic separately, but they’re even more powerful when used together.
Both are infused with vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other nutrients your skin loves. When used together, these two deliver an even more concentrated dose of nutrition right where your most fragile skin needs it most.
To use both, first massage a drop or two of Boom Gold into the delicate skin (and any extra dry spots) around your eyes, T-zone, cheeks and neck. Give it a minute to dry. Then massage one to three drops of Boom Nectar into the same spots. See how it impacts your skin.

3. Choose the Moisturizer You Love
We suggest following up Boom Gold and Boom Nectar with a full-body moisturizer like Boomsilk or Boom Cotton.
We say “or” because it’s up to you which you use. Both Boomsilk and Boom Cotton moisturize your skin from head to toe.
So really, it’s a personal preference. Every woman’s skin is different, so we suggest experimenting until you find the combination you love. To help with this decision, here are the main differences between the two:
1. Finish: Boomsilk is designed to give your skin a luxurious, silky finish, while Boom Cotton has more of a matte finish.
2. Ingredients: Boomsilk has five all-natural ingredients including honey and extra virgin olive oil. Boom Cotton has organic ingredients including organic shea butter and organic jojoba oil.
You can also use both if you choose. Some women say they like using Boom Cotton during the day and Boomsilk at night. Others say they love using Boomsilk from the neck down, and Boom Cotton for their face.
Other women fall in love with one moisturizer and use Boomsilk or Boom Cotton for their entire body.
It’s your call. Boom Bag (Complete) comes with both so you can experiment.
Whichever you choose, we suggest moisturizing your entire face so you can apply makeup next. (You may want to moisturize the rest of your skin too, while you’re at it.)
Usually, we recommend moisturizing your face with Boomstick Glo first. But you already moisturized, so we suggest dropping Boomstick Glo in your purse. Carry this moisturizing stick with you so you can do quick moisture touch ups from anywhere.
Move on to Boomstick Color and Boomstick Glimmer.
Boomstick Color is a universal color that works on every woman. It’s designed to make you look like you’re blushing with pleasure. We call it the “color of happiness” because it mimics that look of joy you get when you’re laughing, working out or just loving life.
To get that look, dab Boomstick Color directly onto your upper cheekbones, forehead, the sides of your neck and your clavicle bones.
Blend it in with your fingers until you see the subtle glow you want. For a hint of sparkle, add Boomstick Glimmer next. This shimmering Boomstick gives your skin a natural-looking radiance. We suggest using Boomstick Glimmer first on your eyelids and the sides of your eyes.
Want more sparkle? You can experiment dabbing Boomstick Glimmer on your shoulders, clavicle bones, cheekbones—or anywhere else.
Lips are last. We suggest first applying Boomstick Color as a lipstick. Then if you want more sparkle, you can add a little bit of Boomstick Glimmer on your top or bottom lip.
5. Honor yourself. Do what you love.
These are just ideas of how you might use a few Boom favorites together.
But really… it’s up to you.
So we suggest you experiment. Figure out what works for your skin, and which routine you enjoy the most. Above all, do what you love. Do what honors you.
