Y'all know I'm a super duper, eco-friendly bamboo fan. When I first laid eyes on the The ​Rootbox

About the Founders:

The Root Theory was created by two childhood friends with a background in graphic and product design. We combine our everyday experiences to create innovative designs where form follows function. Our vision is to revolutionize everyday essentials for women.

While our lives are enveloped with innovation and technology, we noticed that some of our daily essentials have not evolved with current times, like our makeup bags. We decided to create a smarter makeup organizer that will be easy to clean, organize and highlight our beauty essentials. We started selling our initial designs on Etsy and at local craft fairs. Along the way, we received a lot of support and even feedback to improve our design.

After a year of redesigning, we are very excited to officially launch a more versatile and robust Rootbox on Kickstarter. The funding from Kickstarter will help cover our manufacturing cost, time and materials to continue growing our product line. 

-Dorothy and Thao

I'm a bamboozled fan.

The Sea Green Eyes Have It ~ Fall Into Color & WEN

Ecstasy Lacquer in 18 lush colours paint the lips glossy delivering more coverage than traditional gloss. I'm digging the bold color choices for Fall: #401, #501, #601.

Eye Tint the 1st to market liquid tint for the eyes goes on wet for easy application, and blends dry in dazzling, pearl pigmented hues. I am smitten with the sea-color combination, #4 & #2.

WEN haircare created by Hollywood celebrity stylist Chaz Dean's is simply delicious. My hair smells and looks so good I could eat it.
I've been searching how and low for a new 'Leave In Conditioner', and WEN's Cleansing Conditioners are just the ticket. The sweet almond mint Re Moist Intensive Hair Treatment leaves hair looking fierce, and feeling fabulous. Chaz is a naturalist, and dog lover with a Zen vibe.

WEN® Cleansing Conditioner is a new concept in hair care. A 5-in-1 formula, it takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. It cleanses hair thoroughly without lather or harsh ingredients. It won’t strip your hair of natural oils. Your hair is left with strength, moisture, manageability and better color retention.
Say Goodbye to Lather™

  • 97% noticed that WEN® added more shine†
