    I’ve been using Root Science for 2+ years and am impressed with the results. Scrub is just right without over-exfoliating my face and the clay mask has an awesome tightening sensation as it dries. Keep up the good work! Make more Men’s stuff!!

  2. Linda Monteleone

    I ordered this product as a gift to myself to celebrate retirement and start a journey of self care. I had questions and they were graciously immediately answered when I contacted you. I had a special request for a sample, which was also immediately fulfilled! The product showed up beautifully packaged. A beautiful “gift”. I used it and my skin soaked up its goodness like it was gold! I am 100% satisfied…having seen an improvement in my skin almost overnight! Awesome product. Wonderful service! So happy I found you!♡ Turn 65 in March..my skin feels amazing, glowing and healthy!! Thank you!!

  3. Charlotte

    I love everything in this kit! Especially the serum and the Polish and Detox mask. My skin has cleared up within the week and I have noticed that I get less little bumps now. I am so excited to see how these products will make my skin glow more in the future! Thank you Root Skincare!

  4. Mariah

    These last few months as my life and stress levels have fluctuated, my skin has been completely unpredictable and I have wasted so much money on new products hoping they would help soothe my irritated, acne-prone skin… but nothing would work. After reading the wonderful reviews of Root Science products, I decided to give ’em a shot. First let me start by saying, these products are very different. I’ve never used a cleansing bar before and the other products are powder-based which kinda blew my mind and made me not completely sure about it at first. The face scrub in particular didn’t come out as the consistency I imagined it would – but holy crap, do not let it fool you. The cleanser bar and scrub leave your face feeling detoxified and squeaky clean, but not depleted. I use the bar in the morning and the scrub before bed. The mask is wonderful; it dries quickly, is not irritating, comes off like nothing and works as a phenomenal booster. I have had so much trouble with moisturizers in the past, clogging my pores and causing more harm than good, that I have for years just abandoned that part of my skincare routine altogether despite knowing how important it is for skin health in the long run. I was extremely worried when I found that this moisturizer was in oil form. However, I gave it a shot anyways and haven’t had a problem yet. It has replenished and healed my blemishes, and gives my face just enough oils to keep my skin from overcompensating like it normally would when I’ve used cleansers only. Wonderful job, Root Science! I definitely intend on continuing with their products.

  5. Rebecca

    I Really love that I could try the entire skin care line before purchasing the full size. The products are extra gentle and leave my skin feeling great. I’ve always used organic skin care but have never really found a line that does not have overwhelming earthy smells until Root Science. I’m all for organic but I don’t want my face smelling like patchouli. The scents are light and very calming for my sensitive skin. I will definitely be purchasing the full size deluxe kit once I run out.

  6. Michaela

    I’m very happy with my purchase! All the products are gentle enough for my sensitive skin.. My skin has been freaking out as its been getting colder out now that its winter and this has really helped my skin stay moisturized. My skin looks great and just in time for the holidays!

  7. Ellen

    I fell in love with Root Science after testing out the entire product line by purchasing the detox kit. I’m extremely picky when it comes to the products I put on my face. Anything less than organic or filled with a bunch of crappy fillers wont cut it! (Read your labels on anything you put inside your body and the outside people!!). I do a lot of research before making a purchase and I can say that all of the ingredients used in these products are safe and beneficial! This is quite rare!It’s advertised as a 2 week kit but lasts at least a month! My skin feels amazing and I even gifted one to a friend (makes a great gift, the miniature sizes are super adorable )! Love, love, love!

  8. Courtney

    All the products in the detox kit are absolutely heavenly. Scent is naturally light, uplifting and my skin feels calm after every use. I’m also delighted that all the products are small enough that I can bring them with me when I travel. Thanks Root Science for truly an amazing organic skin care line!

  9. Kimberly

    I was recommended to Root Science by a friend and decided to order the 2 week detox kit to test out all the products, being the $$ conscious shopper I am. I first fell head over heals for the RS Youth Serum (I’m in my late 20’s and trying to makeup for all the sun damage I cant take back) The serum is light enough that I can use it am and pm. People have noticed that my skin has a nice glow to it! I wear it under my bb cream during the day, and voilà! I’m getting compliments on my skin like never before! The cleansing bar is just enough lather and shea butter based so it washes away my makeup at the end of the day, plus its super gentle so my skin doesn’t feel overly dry like it does with most cleansers. The scrub I used about 3x a week and it totally works like magic! I find that after a few days of not exfoliating, my pores start to clog up a bit and this does the trick! Scrub is gentle and yet my skin feels squeaky clean afterwards. I used the mask 1x a week as instructed and what an experience it was! So you mix the clay powder in your palm with a little water to create a paste, that was fun! Then you spread the mask on your face, avoiding the eyes of course. Not knowing what to expect, I left it on to go watch TV. To my surprise my skin started to feel as if it were being tightened! Really weird but awesome! I washed it off once it had completely hardened and my skin was super super clean and my pores looked tiny! You definitely need to add the moisturizer immediately after, as the mask absorbs all excess oil and sucks everything from your pores – but it feels great! This is a minimalistic line so dont expect heavy fragrance or harsh ingredients. I guess the idea is that the less you disturb your skin’s natural state the better your skin looks… and I get it now! I used to use a very harsh scrub and cleanser and my skin would always react a day or two later and break out!! It was because my skin care products were too harsh and the ingredients not so gentle. I though the more it burned the better it would work. Oh how I wish I could take back all the abuse I inflicted upon my skin in my earlier years. All in all, I absolutely love this skin care line and there is no going back. Can’t imagine going a day without!

  10. Becky

    Soap: smells amazing and feels heavenly on my skin.
    Scrub: gentle yet very effective.
    Mask: feels like a face lift and tightens my pores like crazy.
    Oil: light in texture, super hydrating, skin is literally radiating as I write this.
    Conclusion: This entire package is divine!

  11. Eva

    Just completed my 2 week skin detox challenge and my skin looks amazing! I’ve been battling very dry and sensitive skin now that I’m in my late 20’s and most products end up causing more damage than good! I’m prompted to write this review because after only a few weeks my skin is hydrated, no more rough spots and just feels sooo good!! I cant stop touching my face in amazement (I know I shouldn’t). I don’t know what the secret ingredient is here but the whole skin care regimen is without a doubt the BEST stuff I’ve used for my skin! So this is what high quality skin care products do, I only wish I discovered these products sooner! Upgrading to the deluxe kit now!
