Favourite Products and Planned Repurchases
Without a doubt, the best product in this months Roccabox box for me was the Elemis Peptide Plumping Pillow Facial. I know that’s a long title… It’s basically a hydrating sleep mask. It smells divine and has left my skin so soft and moisturised all month. That’s right, I got 4 weeks worth out of this little sample bottle. Given the price tag for a full jar, I would not have usually considered this product but I am planning on repurchasing and you even get a discount code to use on the brands website if you decide to buy it in full.
Another product I have reached for day after day is the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer. This is a leave in conditioning treatment that you apply to damp hair and then the magic happens. I’m already on a hair care repair journey so I couldn’t have found this product at a better time. It has 5 oils that help too condition and strengthen the hair from within the follicle. I love that this product isn’t heavy in my hair and doesn’t leave any sticky residue after application like so many other hair products do!
Review of Other Products
Don’t think that I haven’t enjoyed using the other items in the may Roccabox. The Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist smells so good. I’ve been taking it into the office and spraying it on my face half way through the day to add some moisture. In fact, I also used it this morning in place of a toning spray!
As many people are having a glow up in the lockdown, I have been trying to grow my own nails and the Nail HQ Hardener is seriously powerful stuff. My own nails are pretty pathetic usually but this product really does make them harder and less brittle, which has been quite surprising as I have never been able to grow them without them snapping off.
I’ve yet to use the St Tropez bronzing gel because I’m lazy and tanning takes forever, but I have heard great things about St Tropez in general so I am excited to try it when I can muster the strength!
Best Part of the Roccabox
Given the current lockdown, it’s been really hard to try before you buy with a lot of products. I love that this box gives the opportunity for that again. For the longest time I have avoided brands with a bigger price tag. I’m glad that roccabox can remove that block and show me new brands to entrust with my make up bag and skin care routine.
Again, it provides you with a discount code so that you can buy the full size product, should you fall in love with it (like I have).
You can also gift one of the monthly beauty boxes or a Themed Box to a loved one, which is a lovely sentiment for someone that’s been having a tough time recently.
The price of the Roccabox is £10.00 plus £3.95 postage. That’s a pretty standard price for beauty boxes these days. But they also offer 3, 6 and 12 months subscriptions meaning you save a little extra each time.
I love that they offer hair and beauty products as well as nail and perfume which I haven’t seen in other boxes before.
Their latest limited edition box is based on Astrology and as a Fire sign I can confirm that it was perfect for me!
