Roccabox Review by Mel – March 2020

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 ‘The Beauty Box that’s more than just skin deep’. 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.

Thank you to Roccabox, who have now given us an exclusive discount code, just for BoXession members! A huge 20% off your first box, making it just £8 plus postage. You would be mad not to order at that price!

What is inside the box?

Total Box Value = £55.14!

So, if you order using our discount code, that means you get 7 times what you pay in monetary value… insane, right?!

Time to test out the goodies…

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum

Yes! I am a Murad fan, so this was a great addition to the box for me. I know it is a deluxe sample, but the full size 30ml is a whopping £75! This gives me a chance to try before I buy, as I do have an addiction to expensive skincare.

BumbleZest Calm & Comfort Superfood Shot

I was a little bit scared to try this, as I am not a fan of cinnamon at all. Running joke in my house that if Rob puts it in my Apple Pie, he is moving out! Or sultanas… the clue is in the title…. ‘APPLE’ Pie. Anyway I digress, this is actually weirdly nice, are you supposed to like things that are good for you? You can restock on these in your local Holland & Barrett too!

HUDA Beauty Lip Contour Matte Pencil

The must have product, and highly sought after brand. I recall when Roccabox featured the lip strobe, and the box was a sellout in days! So if you are hesitating on ordering this months box due to wanting one of these bad boys, then head straight over to their Website now. Hesitating will only leave you wishing you had not waited. I am off to see Stereophonics at the weekend, so I will test this out then.

 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

This is always a popular item on the group, it is well known to be a very good product. I don’t personally use primer because I do not use foundation, but I will definitely gift it on.

Oh K SOS Facial Steam Mask

A face mask that you use in the Shower!!! Sold! This is a revelation! You can use it in the bath too, but I am a self confessed shower addict. I have an amazing walk through shower, I love nothing more than to stay in there until I cannot see further than the end of my nose. This is brilliant, would definitely buy one again.

Umberto Giannini Banana Butter Leave in Conditioner

Now, I couldn’t use this as a leave in conditioner, as my hair is far too fine and lightweight. I used it instead as a treatment. I put it on, then on went the shower cap! I used my lovely new Sugar bear Hair one from last months box. The smell of this is good enough to eat, I really had to try hard not to taste it. My hair smelt amazing, Rob made a comment when we were in bed how good it smelt too. The fact it is Vegan is just a bonus.

My Verdict?

I think the star of the show for most will undoubtedly be the HUDA item. Personally I love the Murad and the Umberto Giannini, but that is the Beauty of these boxes. There is something in there for everyone as it is an all round mixture.

Roccabox you are fast becoming top of the poll favourite among the Beauty Sub Box World… no longer the underdog, it is safe to say that you hold your own among them. Happy 3rd Birthday, can’t wait to see where you are next year!

At £10 a month, this is one of the best boxes on the market. 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!
