About Bloomeffects and the founder:

Bloomeffects was founded by the wonderful Kim Van Haaster in 2019 to harness the potency of flavonoid-rich tulips into beautiful, luxuriously effective skincare. The tulips come from her husband's family farm (he is a 4th generation tulip farmer in The Netherlands). Bloomeffects was awarded a Dutch government grant to study & research the use of tulips in skincare. 

After the tulip bulbs are harvested, the stem cells are extracted, which forms the basis of the Bloomeffects Proprietary Dutch Tulip Complex. The complex is rich in antioxidants and natural moisturizing factors. Field to Face skincare!

Kim Van Haaster asserts, "I guess you could call me a bit of a global citizen! I am of Chinese/Vietnamese descent, born & raised in Melbourne, Australia. I then located to NYC for almost 10 years before falling in love with a tulip farmer and moving to the Netherlands for love."
Bloomeffects Black Tulip Overnight Retinoid Treatment Serum ($119.00 for .88 oz.): The Black Tulip, which is the deepest and darkest of Tulips, boasts the highest flavinoid count, and Bloomeffects utilizes a proprietary complex that includes a potent extract from the Black Tulip petals in this extraordinary formula. These Tulips are grown on Kim Van Haaster's family farm, and they "partnered with the University of Leiden in The Netherlands to study & discover the regenerative powers of the Black Tulip."

This stunning purple serum, with its fetching light aroma, effectively improves uneven skin tone, reduces the appearance of discoloration and spots, plumps fine lines, exfoliates dead skin cells and gives skin a healthy glow. It is lightweight, fast absorbing and utterly delectable! There is something inherently mesmerizing about this regal looking serum, and it is not only highly effective, but also quite bewitching. If you try one new serum this year, this is the one

According to Bloomeffects,

Powered by next-generation retinoid active, Granactive Retinoid, and naturally-derived retinol alternative Bakuchiol this daily treatment helps to promote skin turnover and reduce fine lines and wrinkles while sealing in hydration without redness or irritation. Formulated with 37 botantical extracts including antioxidant-rich Centella Asiatica Extract, and Bisabolol to calm and soothe skin while keeping it supple, firm, and hydrated. Potent actives, Niacinamide, Hemp Seed Oil Complex along with Lingonberry and Saponaria Pumila Stem Cells work to minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone, spots and wrinkles improving skin’s moisture, firmness, and elasticity for a brighter, healthier more youthful-looking complexion.

Directions: Using the dropper, release a pea sized amount and apply to clean dry skin, massaging in upward motions as a part of your night time routine. After the serum has dried, lock in moisture with the Black Tulip Facial Treatment. Use 2-3 times per week or as desired. For sensitive skin apply serum to completely dry skin. If damp, the retinol will absorb more deeply into skin and can cause irritation.

For external use only. When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol. AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES. DISCONTINUE USE IF IRRITATION OCCURS.

*Part of the Bloomeffects Proprietary Black Tulip Complex. Our youth-restoring Black Tulip Complex is powered by upcycled Black Tulip petals harvested from our 115-year-old Dutch family farm’s award-winning tulips. Through government grants in partnership with the University of Leiden, we discovered the regenerative properties of Black Tulip petals. This deep, dark tulip contains the highest flavonoid count, which features high antioxidant properties that protect against free radical damage, preserving the youth of the skin for instantly visible, clinically-proven results.

Bloomeffects Tulip Dew Sunscreen Serum SPF 50 ($65.00 for 1.86 oz.): I have used quite a few luxury sunscreens over the years, but this one is particularly special. This SPF 50 mineral sunscreen offers excellent protection against the harmful rays of the sun, but in addition to using Zinc Oxide in its formulation, they employ the use of Tulip Extract, Bisabolol, Shiitake Mushroom extract, Kakadu plum extract, Plum pine fruit extract and Burdekin plum fruit extract. Therefore, this antioxidant-rich sunscreen scavenges free-radicals and nourishes, hydrates and brightens the skin. The serum consistency is such a pleasure to use, and has quickly become my most coveted sunscreen.
