Review: Roccabox September 2017

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a good weekend.

I received  my September Roccabox beauty box last week and as I have now got a chance to try all the products for a short space of time wanted to let you know my initial thoughts on the box/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 not teamed up with individual ‘influencer’ but have taken the advice of fashion and beauty editors – a ‘handful of true Fashion Week veterans’ and they state box contains products that are ‘real Fashion Week Essentials’.

Products come packaged  in an outer white box with rose gold lettering and an information leaflet is also included (photo below).

This month’s box contained the following five items:

Scentered De-Stress Therapy Balm (Relax Unwind & Reset) Mini 1.5g Travel Size £5.  Love theses balm already and had not realised they were now doing mini sizes as well now, as perfect  for travelling as you do not need much product.  I was intending to do a post on this range anyway and still will, as I think they are so good.  They are 100% natural and there are a number of different therapy balms – this one is to de-stress and you just apply to pulse points and inhale and I really do think these balms help.   Although I do like all the balms, my favourite is the ‘Sleep Well’ one.   Happy to see this in the box.  20% off purchases at www.scentered.me when you use the code SCENTROCCA20;

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads (Sample Pack of 5 pads)RRP £12.95 for 60 pads – The pads are soaked in glycolic acid and can be used on face, neck and decollete once or twice daily.  I have used these before and definitely think they do help to tone, smooth the skin and also give a boost to the skin and although this is a small sample still handy for travelling.  30% off when you buy 2 items or more using the code LFW1730 @ www.nipandfab.com;

 

Blank Canvas Quick Brush  (Full Size £14.05) – Favourite product in the box.  V impressed with this brush already, although it is quite chunky, it is compact & bristles feel soft but firm enough for applying foundation & bronzer and even blush.  Also love the hot pink colour so I am v happy to see this included  – will be checking out more brushes from this brand

 

Patisserie de Bain Shower Crème Crème Patissiere (175ml)FULL SIZE states RRP £2.99 (available in a set- not many sites seem to have this fragrance available individually at the moment).  –  It has a creamy consistency and does smell of vanilla, sweet.  Handy product to have and does leave skin fragrant but maybe slightly too sweet-smelling for some.   Reasonably priced and although would maybe prefer another of the fragrances in this range, will still finish this tube;

 

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio in Gilded (RRP £14 for Full Size – think we got a mini size as hoping not £14 for this size!) – although outer packaging v pretty, product packaging does not feel or look great,  although the shadows themselves are more pigmented than expected when you swatch – not a fan of the gold glitter does not feel or look great but the creamy gold and the dark brown do look well on and did last longer than expected when I applied over eye primer.  Will try both for a longer period of time to see how well they perform but product packaging alone would personally put me off purchasing;

Overall I am happy with the contents of this months box, not my favourite box but still a good selection of products and brands. My favourite two products are the Blank Canvas brush and the Scentered De-Stress balm.  Wonder if there will be an individual ‘influencer’ next month again,  and if so who will it be?

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.

Hope you all have a great week as always.

Thank you – take care.

Best Wishes Liz x

    I like the brush too. The eyeshadow appeals to me as the colours are autumnal and great for the time of year. The shower gel can be bought in Superdrug and I have some. For a cheap product it’s nice. I haven’t subscribed to this box. I have got this thing for love me beauty at the moment as the do perricone md which I just love and they had a lip plumping machine that retails for 125 pounds so it’s really good. Love me beauty are really going for it and has changed a lot. They also have a little Kat Von D which is fashionable at this time. I enjoyed the post though and like to see the contents of this good box. Thank you for the super post and hope you had a good weekend too.
