I received the June Roccabox beauty box today, my second box. Although I have not got a chance yet to try the products properly wanted to let you see what was is in it and my first impressions of the contents.
Roccabox is a monthly subscription beauty box which costs £10 a month (plus £3.95 p&p). 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 Jessica Harris, Editor of fashion and beauty blog, TwentySixStyle.com.
Products come packaged in an outer white box with rosegold lettering and an information card (photo below).
This months box contained the following five items:
Bloomtown Botanicals Roll-on Infused Oil – ‘The Rose Garden’ (9g) – Full Size RRP £4.80 – advises to apply to pulse points for an instant pick me up – never heard of this brand before and although do not usually like rose fragrances in products, it is not overpowering, has a v light floral scent, perfect travel size, should last a long time and will definitely use;
Olverum Bath Oil (15ml) – (sample size – states enough for 3 baths) – RRP £16 for a set of 3 x 15ml – have heard of this brand before but never used any of their products, this has a spa type fragrance – down to the blend of ten essentials oil. States: will help ease stress and relax tension in both your mind and body so definitely looking forward to relaxing, using this – though would have preferred if a bigger size had been included;
Vintage Cosmetic Company Eyelash Curlers – Full Size RRP £7 – you will receive one of two colours – you will either receive these in rose gold or silver tone – pretty packaging and I got the rose gold version which I am delighted with;
Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Crème in ‘Incognito’ – Full Size RRP £20 – already love their creamy lipsticks so was v happy to see this included but was a bit dubious as well as do not really like matt formula lip products as I find them so drying on the lips – however although I have only used it once, this one goes on creamy and then sets to a matt finish, without that drying tightening feeling – it is a beautiful rose / nude colour, v long lasting and although when you rub your lips together it is v tacky, your lips feel comfortable not like other matt products I have tried so if I can avoid ‘smacking’ my lips I definitely would use this lip crème a lot (my favourite product in the box) ; and
Svelte Super Tea for Body Balance (one bag) – Full Size £3.49 for 12 pyramid tea bags – although this is a ‘super’ tea which states will help nourish your skin, energise your body and boost your immune system, bit disappointed this was included as one of the five items – would have preferred another makeup item and this included as a bonus item.
This box is still good value as total value of products are worth over £35 and I will use all of the items but bit disappointed as one ‘whole-leaf tea bag’ was included as one of the 5 items. As usual I would also have preferred to have had more makeup items included, but as I have said number of times 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 I am also hoping the ‘influencer’ next month has more makeup items included in their selection (hopefully no more ‘tea bags’ or if included only as a bonus item).
Details also included on back of information card of how to win a special edition Roccabox (photo / details below).
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.
