Root Bionic Refining Essence

3 reviews
This concentrated refining essence is designed to instantly provide the feeling of smoothed, hydrated and toned skin for a fresh, dewy glow. Lactobionic acid, a unique polyhydroxy acid (PHA) with antioxidant and prebiotic activity, is combined with willow bark, hyaluronic acid and Biophiles nutrient-rich Roots Biotic Broth for a next-generation treatment that resurfaces and regenerates the skin's appearance while supporting overall micobiome health. Use daily for beautifully radiant skin. A radiance-boosting treatment for devitalized skin. The perfect prep for Biophile's Bio-Shroom Rejuvenating Serum.


On clean skin, apply 2-3 pumps of this probiotic skin essence onto a cotton pad and wipe over face, neck and décolleté both AM and PM.

Pro tip: For a more hydrating feel, forgo the cotton and simply pat onto face, neck and décolleté.

Defying conventional beauty wisdom, Biophile uses skin's own biological process as an active ingredient. Biophile believes skin's microbiome is as unique as a fingerprint. It's not an inactive canvas, but rather a dynamic ecosystem that works synergistically with Biophile's secret sauce: a fermented stew of medicinal plants, adaptogenic fungi and mineral rich superfoods that yields a post-biotic broth teeming with amino acids, organic acids, enzymes, vitamins, peptides and expolysaccharides. This bio-responsive tincture is infused with other actives and readily absorbed to replenish and nourish skin's microbiome.

I recommend this product

Very impressed with this line

I wasn't sure what to expect when I received the Biophile essence and serum in the Nov box, but I've been really impressed with the entire product line. This refining essence does exactly what it says it will - a very mild exfoliator that removes dull skin without any harshness or drying. I have very sensitive skin and even some barrier issues, and this is the only acid-based product I can use without feeling dryness or tightness. I use it at night only and in the morning my skin is noticeably brighter, smoother, and softer. These products have definitely earned a place in my regular routine. Thanks for the wonderful discovery pick!

Absolute love

I adore this essence. Love how it has a subtle to almost no scent, and gentle exfoliation it has. Plumps And hydrates at the same time. One of ethnic most beautiful essences I have every tried! Glad I discovered via one of the monthly discoveries via Beautyheroes

It’s a no for me

Every time I use this essence my skin would feel very tingly, which I found annoying. maybe it was too harsh for me as I don’t really use acids on a regular basis but I kept trying to use it up. However, the pump stopped working rendering the product useless for me. Needless to say I was not impressed with this product. The serum on the other hand, is quite nice


Beauty Heroes®

Thank you for sharing your experience, Fey. Root Bionic Refining Essence does offer a gentle exfoliation so some people do experience some tingling. In regards to the pump, we'd be happy to get a replacement sent your way if you're interested. Just shoot us an email and we'd be happy to assist.
