Roccabox Review by Mel – June 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 = £69.95!

So, if you order using our discount code, that means you get over 8 times what you pay in monetary value… insane, right?!

Time to test out the goodies…

Charles Worthington Diamond Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Full disclosure, I used this before my live unboxing! I had a peek in the box the morning it arrived, and I had run out of my usual brand so I thought I would give this a try then pop it back into the box. I have used it twice now, and I am quite impressed. My hair feels thicker, and the conditioner was really nourishing and I didn’t need a lot. Very good on the pocket too, can pick this up in my local Boots for a really good price to repeat purchase.

Avant Supreme Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser

This is one I knew everyone would be excited about. I am very sad to say that after 2 days of using it my bank account is going to fall out with me. It is VERY good. It is blue too which I never expected. I used this morning and night on top of my Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Serum. It really did add the moisture back and I know that the cost of this in full size is 3 figures, so I am scared to love it. Anyone want to gift me any?

MAYY Velvet Matte Lipstick

This is one classy looking product, the packaging, the smell (yes it smells lovely!), and the product itself. This is a completely new brand to me, have never heard of them before. The consistency and colour are perfect for everyday wear. I have to be honest, I would love it more in a bold red, but that is personal choice as I am sucker for a red lippie!

Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner

I have not used this yet, I only wear eyeliner for special occasions, and wearing my Pyjamas in the House for 3 months while working from home doesn’t count as an occasion, ha! I absolutely love a wing though, so as soon as this lockdown is over, my frocks and Irregular Choice heels are breaking free, along with me of course. I know the brand are well known for being excellent, and I have used their mascara before which was great.

Beauty Pro Rejuvenating Collagen Mask

I think there were 2 variations to the box this month, mine is version 2. The other included under eye masks. I already have and use them, so this was a better option for me, something I have not tried. Beauty Pro are a great brand, I have never been disappointed with any of their products. Sheet Masks are a lockdown must have for me these last few months.

Exciting News!

Roccabox have another Limited Edition Box releasing, in collaboration with The Capsule!

This has a total Value of over £110, and costs just £20! I have already seen a sneak peek at one of the products and I am certain I will be ordering this. To sign up for the VIP Access, click here.

This will give you exclusive access at 9am on 14/06/20, general sale is 10am. I expect it to be sold out very quickly, so the only way to be in with a chance is to get your name on that list!


My Verdict?

I think that although the Hero product this month was the Eyeko Eyeliner, for me I would pick the MAYY Velvet Hydro Matte Lipstick. I am a sucker for a new and exciting brand, and am impressed by this product overall.

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!
