Roccabox Review by Mel – July 2019

For any of you who watched my unboxing last month, or read my reviews, you will know that I am lucky enough to now be reviewing Roccabox every month! I am so excited about this I keep telling everyone and anyone. Spreading a little bit of box love around!

A huge personal Thank you to Tia and her team for entrusting me to do her box justice. In my opinion it does just that all by itself. I mean just look at this pretty box…

The inside of the lid has the quote ‘Life is tough, but so are you honey’. Well, after the week I have had I can attest to that! The great thing about subscription boxes for me is that they are a treat to ourselves that we DO deserve. Roccabox is affordable, and will bring a smile to your face when delivered.

Speaking of delivery, this comes via Royal Mail, and is always covered in a durable pink mailing bag to protect it from the elements.

If you missed my unboxing, you can either watch it back on our Facebook Group or by clicking play below on our YouTube Channel…

How much does it cost?

A monthly recurring subscription costs just £10 plus £3.95 postage!

You can buy a 3, 6, or 12 month upfront too.

What is inside the box?

Box Total = £36.95!

That is almost 4 times what you pay for the box!!

Time to test out some of the treats from this months edit…

Afterspa Makeup Remover

I already use microfibre makeup remover cloths religiously. I have been using them for some time now after discovering them in a Beauty Box. Sorry Roccabox this was before you were born! I was intrigued to see how this compared to my usual brand.

Given that it is too blooming hot to wear any makeup at the moment, I used this to remove my cleansing balm that I use daily. I really like the size of this compared to my usual brand, it is also cheaper than the ones I have for re buying! We could be onto something here! If you have not used one of these in the past then I urge you to. They are a game changer. I can take a full face of makeup off with ease, and they are kinder to your skin too.

Beauty Pro Nourishing Collagen Sheet Mask

I have not yet used this, only because time is something I do not have. I have barely sat down, not even to sheet mask! I do love a sheet mask though, and when I do find 15 minutes spare it will get put to use.

Grow Gorgeous Rescue & Repair Duo

My hair is honestly awful at the moment. I have been so worried as it is falling out at an astonishing rate. It is about half the thickness it was a couple of months ago. I know that this is due to stress as my hair always seems to take the brunt.

So, I have used this for 3 days to get a really good idea on how it reacts to my hair. My hair is baby soft, it really is beautiful condition. If only it was twice as thick too! I would buy this again in future, I love that it is cruelty free too.

Merci Handy Refreshing Face Mist

I have a couple of different face mists, but have never tried this one. I am always hot, even in winter I am that weirdo with the Air con on in my car, ha! So I am running around like an utter loon and this has been in my pocket all day. It is my saviour! It leaves no residue and is a really fine mist. Much better than other ones I have tried.

DAME Organic Tampon Sample

This is not something I would be able to use, purely because I have no monthly cycle. However, I do have a box of sanitary items that I collect from other boxes I review or buy, and then I gift them either to a School or Women’s shelter. I applaud that more companies are now becoming eco conscious and ethical with these items.

PIXI Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balm

I love PIXI as a brand, I use various products from their range. I love both the glow tonic and the rose tonic. I have had this before in the rose colour and used it all. Happy to have another, and would love to see more PIXI items in Roccabox.

My Verdict?

I often judge a box based on if I can use everything. If you manage over half of the box then great! This box I will use all of it, which means for me this is a perfect box! I know that we are all different… If you are a member of the BoXession Group, you will know that you can swap or sell any unwanted items from Subscription boxes, so my eyes will be peeled, just in case!

I love affordable Beauty Boxes, and even more so when they are run by Small Business Owners. For just £10 a month, Roccabox is amazing value. You can still purchase this exact box, there is only one variation this month. I really missed receiving this box last month as I was away. I was watching green with envy at you all sharing your photos of the June edit. Well, I am back; see you again next month…
