ABOUT THIS BRAND
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 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!
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
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.
