Orders not picked up within 14 days will be cancelled.
LOST AND STOLEN ORDERSOnce we transfer Root orders into our shippers care they are responsible for delivering your order. For lost or physically damaged orders please contact your local USPS. We will make every effort to help track & find lost orders (which is extremely rare), however we are unable to track better than USPS. Once orders show as delivered we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.
COMBINING ORDERS FOR SHIPPINGWe are unable to combine multiple orders.
ADDING/CHANGING/CANCELING YOUR ORDERYour order begins processing as soon as we receive it! Please call us AS SOON AS POSSIBLE at 319-290-5746, Monday-Friday between 9am-4pm CST. We will only be able to process adding to orders, order changes or canceling orders by telephone.
ACCEPTED RETURN ITEMSWe can only accept returns on unopened & unused products, they must be in their original shrink wrapping or their seal must not have been tampered with. Some products do not contain a shrink band or tamper proof label, in order to return these items we will need to inspect these products and be 100% confident that the product has not been used. Because we do not allow for open & used products to be returned, we offer (almost) ALL of our products in trial or sample size.
PLACING A RETURNShould you want to return any part of your online order please contact us within 14 days of your original order date. For a return authorization, email us with your name, order # & return reason to firstname.lastname@example.org. All returns must be received to us no later than 30 days after original order date. Upon inspection of products, Root will issue your return to your original payment form (or Root gift card) within 3 business days. We do not pay for return shipping & are not responsible for lost returns (it is always best to track & insure your returns). Returns making your original total purchase price less than $75 (for free shipping) will be refunded less $5 for original shipping charge or issue you a Root gift card. We do not accept returns on opened products, please note that while we do our very best to display colors & products accurately screens may display colors differently. Samples are available for purchase.

We do not accept returns on opened products, please note that while we do our very best to display colors & products accurately screens may display colors differently.

EXCHANGESWe do not exchange opened products for different colors. Please purchase sample sizes first to find your perfect color matches for our Pretty Booster & Pearl Powder Foundation. If your product is still in the original shrink wrap you will be able to return it within 30 days of original purchase date. See return details above.
DAMAGED PRODUCTSWithin 3 business days of receiving any damaged products please email us with photos at email@example.com. We are not responsible for products reported damaged after this amount of time. Without this window of notice we are unable to open a claim with our shippers. *We pride ourselves in the quality of products we make. As we hand make, package, label, shrink wrap & ship our products we would never allow for a product to leave our hands in a damaged condition.*
