Roccabox Review by Mel – May 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!

This months edit is the Staycation one, which is focused on keeping us all beautiful whilst we are unable to jet off on holiday.

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…

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 = £47.98!

So, if you order using our discount code, that means you get 6 times what you pay in monetary value… insane, right?!

Time to test out the goodies…

Elemis Peptide Plumping Pillow Facial

This is an absolute WOW product. After leaving it on overnight my face felt without a doubt more glowing and plump. I know that a lot of our members are a fan of the brand, and equally the products I have tried have been excellent. What tends to steer me away is the price tag. I must say I am very tempted to splurge on the 50ml full size on this. Someone take my bank card away, please!

Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer

Hair products are items I welcome in boxes, and mini sizes are very helpful for weekends away too. Not that I am going on any at the minute, boo hoo! I can never use a conditioner as a leave in though, as my hair is too fine and it weighs it down. So I used this as a normal conditioner and just left it on a bit longer in the shower. I wouldn’t say I was blown away, but it may work well for people who use it as a leave in product. The price point is excellent though.

St Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Gel + Mitt

This was this months hero product. I have never had great experiences with self tan, I can’t seem to get along with any of them. I have heard good things about the gel. I have only patch tested it at the minute because I was scared to go for it in case I resemble an orange on microsoft teams meetings. I will definitely be using it on my legs over the weekend to look like I have had some sun.

Nail HQ Hardener

My nails are a mess at the minute. I have religiously had my nails painted every 3 weeks for 13 years. I have my own nails and they are long. I really like my visits to the lady who does them, and they are growing out but still in tact. I have been using it on the gap as they grow out to keep them strengthened.

Pact Coffee – Planalto

I haven’t tried this out just yet, but I much prefer coffee to tea so I will test it. I use Nespresso pods daily and have for years. I am not human without my Coffee. I have heard of pact before so I knew that they did a subscription. I have noticed on the website that they do a pod subscription too.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

I have only just ordered the 200ml full size of this last week! It has not arrived yet though. I love the little glass bottle it comes in, and I will be able to refill this from my large bottle when I finally get to go away. I am already a fan of rosewater and the benefits for my skin. It is very hydrating and helps with rosacea. Plus it smells beautiful!

My Verdict?

I think that although the Hero product this month was the St Tropez, my favourite items were the Elemis Peptide Plumping Pillow Facial, and the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. I am a huge skincare addict, so products like that always get me excited, and I love to try new products that I have never seen in other boxes. I really hope that they include other products from these brands in future boxes.

Roccabox you blow me away time and time again. I cannot find a fault in this box, not that I would want to! I will continue to recommend you to our members because I love you so. Can’t wait for my May box already!

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!
