I received my first Roccabox beauty box today, the May 2017 edition. Roccabox is a new monthly subscription beauty box which costs £10 a month (plus £3.95 p&p). This is their third box and each month you’ll receive a box of beauty treats hand picked by one of the industry’s best loved personalities / influencer, along with their top beauty hints and tips – for more details please see link here.
This month Roccabox have teamed up with the blogger ‘Sassy In The City’ and included 5 of her hero products in the box. Products come packaged in an outer white box with rosegold lettering and an information card which includes the RRP for all the products which I prefer.
This months box contained the following products:
Glo & Ray Longwear Precision Brown Eyeliner – Full Size RRP £6.90 – have tried a few products from this brand before and as you know I love eyeliners so was delighted to see a brown one included, very easy to use, however not as pigmented as I would like and unsure about the longwear element but this is only my initial thoughts so when I get a chance to try properly will do a separate review if impressed;
Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Softening Body Lotion – 50 ml (sample size) – Full Size RRP £6.50 – This product smells divine, has a beautiful creamy consistency, leaves skin feeling soft and lightly fragranced – states cream in leaflet and lotion on jar but definitely has a creamy consistency;
iZ Beauty Blooming Beautiful Collection Nail Polish Full Size RRP £6 (6ml) – you will receive one of two colours – I received ‘Lily Romance’ which is a candy pink, other option is a light blue – I have never heard of this brand before, applied ok and although pretty pigmented, first coat was slightly patchy so takes two coats but does dry to a lovely gel effect finish, not a colour I would reach for personally but still a perfect colour for spring / summer;
Monu Hydrating Mask (100ml) Full Size RRP £29.95 – Have tried a number of Monu products but had never tried this mask, contains Royal Jelly and Evening Primrose Oil and states is a non setting , hydrating mask for the face and neck; and
Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor Full Size RRP £8.99 – already have this particular razor, good to have a spare – although this razor is good and you really do not need any shave gel as you can ‘lather and shave’ in one step it is not very compact for travelling so usually keep this one for home.
This box is good value as total value of products are worth over £50 and as I will use all the products, that is a bonus. I would have preferred to have had more makeup items included, however as advised before this is what beauty boxes are all about discovering / trying new products and therefore it is a bonus if you love all the products. I would definitely recommend trying this box if you can, as it will be a lovely surprise to see who the collaboration will be with each month; and currently if you use the code Sassy10 you can get 10% off your first box – valid until 31st May 2017.
I hope you found this useful – welcome any comments and would love to know if you are already subscribed to this box, what you thought of this months box?
If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot and be v much appreciated.
Thank you – take care – more posts to come soon.
