Roccabox Review by Mel – September 2019

For any of you who watch my unboxing’s or read my reviews, Roccabox is a box I am kindly gifted every month by Tia, founder and CEO! I am so excited to be back reviewing after a month off due to moving into our new home; I felt like kissing the postie when this one arrived!

A huge personal Thank you to Tia and her team for continuing to send this to me. I love to support small businesses, I am almost as passionate about that as the boxes themselves! I love the new eco friendly and recyclable box design, every month has different quotes and slogans on…

The inside of the lid has the quote ‘Always make time for yourself’. I need some time out, I am off for a Spa day later this month with my other half. We are both truly exhausted and working hard on our new Home. 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. The bonus of this is I recognise that pink bag and know what treats have landed straight away.

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 = £62.98!

That is OVER 6 times what you pay for the box!! Absolute bargain!

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

Monuskin Warming Aromatic Mask

I have had this before but only in a sample, and I loved it! I love Monuskin products in general, I also highly recommend their aftersun. I think I may have got it in Roccabox too? It goes on with a brush and then sets to a clay like texture. You can feel it warming your skin. I always wash off with a microfibre cloth. If you got the July edit of Roccabox there was one in there, an Afterspa one. Really impressed with such a high value item in the box this month.

Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser

This has to be my favourite item this month. I love Murad and I love cleansers. I had not tried this one yet so no time like the present. I used it with my facial brush morning and night. I really am struggling with my combination skin at the moment. I think the house move and work have been taking their toll. I really felt my skin was more moisturised after using this. I will continue to use it up before I shell out on the full size. Yet another reason I love Beauty Boxes!

Moonskin Fan Brush

This is an exclusive to Roccabox. I have never heard of the brand before, so I wonder if they are quite new? I believe they are a Korean brand. I will be gifting this to my Sister, who is soon 14 and loves a highlighter.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

If you have never used this before, I warn you now that it will make you buy the full size, I did! I even have a bottle of the baby version as it smells a bit more subtle because Rob moans about the Lavender scent ha! This genuinely does work, it is a sought after item on BoXession too.

STYLondon Banana Setting Powder

I know that Banana Setting powders are very popular, and I have not seen this one in another beauty box before which is great news to subscribers. I am not wearing makeup at the moment as I am trying to get my skin back on track. This again will be gifted to my makeup mad Sister.

Offblak Tea

I have never heard of the brand at all, I love the branding. I have let the man of the house have these as I am a Coffee girl and only occasionally drink tea.

My Verdict?

I can’t decide between the Murad and MonuSkin which is my favourite this month, so I will go with both. For me receiving just those 2 items in a £10 box would have been well worth the money at a £40 combined RRP. This box for me continues to grow, to change and to keep up with the trends. They were the underdog but now I think of them as being up there with the longer established boxes. I believe this is one box that will be around for years to come. Well done Tia & Team, you are doing an amazing job!

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 make sure you join us. Be warned, it may cause addiction haha!
