Roccabox Review by Mel – October 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!

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 ‘Life is tough, but so are you honey’. 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 Value = £50.20!! Yet again Roccabox is worth an astounding 5 times what you have paid for the box!

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

Laidbare DIY Cleanser/Toner

I have seen lots of posts on Instagram about this brand, but have never tried it for myself. I was pleasantly surprised at a cleanser and toner in one. It was really quick to use in the morning. The ingredients are 99% natural too, bonus!

BareMinerals Skinlongevity Serum

I think I may have had this before, but it has been swiped by someone, because I recognise it. This product has won lots of awards so I am told. You just add a couple of pumps morning and night and off you go. It is too early to notice if it does make a difference, but I would happily purchase it if it does.

Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion

This is one of those items I see lot in places like Boots, but have never picked up. I always thought it was for use on the body if I am honest as the bottle looks almost like medicine, ha ha. I think this is a unisex product as I noticed the man of the house eyeing it up. Fantastic size for your on the go toiletry bag, or your top office drawer at work!

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist

I am a Balance Me fan already, so to add a new to me item to the box is a win/win. The only thing I am sad about is that it is not bigger! I already know all about the plumping and hydrating properties that Hyaluronic acid has, and I have been a fan of products containing this for a while. This is a ‘good’ acid, so don’t let the name scare you ladies. This could end up being another re buy, I will see how I get on with it. I always want to buy everything skincare related and I only have one face, although my other half would say differently ha!

3ina Eyeliner Pen

I haven’t tested this out yet, I only wear eyeliner for special occasions and nights out. But  I have to say I am loving the look of the tip. It looks very fine and sturdy for doing that all important flick.

Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme

I was going to keep this, but since I have already tried it and I am a red red type of girl, I donated it in a gift box to my new Boss at work. She has been really great since I started and it is good to be kind I say.

My Verdict?

I honestly think this is one box that just continues to grow. You can tell the efforts that are being made to improve it all of the time. That alone excites me for the prospects of Roccabox’s future in the Beauty Sub Box world.

This month’s box was again an all round mix of makeup and skincare, which is so important to ensure there is something for everyone. At £10 a month, this is one of the best boxes on the market. You really can’t lose at that price. I always joke that I spend a tenner just going to the shop for bread and milk, but it is true. It is a pocket money priced treat box that offers the excitement of surprise. What are you waiting for?

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!
