Ladies, for $40.00 this facial scrub from Root Science BETTER be worth it!! Well, it sort of is, and sort of isn’t. The ingredients are amazing, and it smells ostensibly of mint…O.K, it doesn’t; more like, erm, earth. But I’m not holding that against it.
As a scrub, it works. And it is gentle. It’d be great for sensitive skin as it’s more like a ‘rub’ than a scrub, with leafy bits rather than weird granules or gritty bits. It tightens my skin and seems to close pores. It basically works like a face mask. It promises to renew, restore, and brighten, and I think it fulfills that promise.
I’m just not sure it’s worth $40.00.
Here’s a list of the ingredients:
Almonds: Contain vitamin E, which increase cellular regeneration and promotes the healing process of scars and acne.
Kaolin Clay: Enhances blood circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing. Draws out impurities, toxins, excess oil and dirt. Aids in the healing process of acne, rosacea and sun damage.
Orange Peel: Contains a high concentration of Vitamin C, which stimulates collagen synthesis, evens skin tone and brightens complexion.
Bentonite Clay: Abundant in calcium and magnesium; critical for skin regeneration. Calms skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and clears acne blemishes and clogged pores.
Neem Leaf: Packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and astringent properties. Protects against acne, soothes skin irritation, and revitalizes dull skin.
Slippery Elm Bark: Used to treat psoriasis, boils, burns and ulcers. Reduces inflammation, calms irritation, and draws toxins from the skin.
Marshmallow Root: Used to treat eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and sunburns. Increases cell regeneration and plumps fine lines and wrinkles.
