Good evening friends,
And welcome back!
My first review of 2022 is bought to you by Roccabox.
‘Clean up you act’ box contains 5 ‘super clean skin and body’ beauty products worth over £81 and one ‘extra treat’.
First up …
Grüum Pür Gentle Moisturiser (Full Size) RRP £8
A lightweight, suble scented Face and neck moisturiser packed with sage, camomile and green tea, perfect application before make up, or at the end of the day on a clean face.
Also paraben, sulphate and petrochemical free
Ameliorate – Transforming body lotion RRP £6 (Deluxe mini)
This lotion has a terrible scent, reminded me of a instant fake tan I used to wear when I was around 18/19 years old. It left my skin soft enough but itchy and a little irritable, was thrown in the bin shorty after
Paradoxx Repair Game Changer Hair Mask RRP £15
First off I love the packaging, this mask can be applied on dry, towel dried or wet hair. I scooped this onto wet hair for 10 minutes after shampooing. Although the earthy scent isn’t partially to my liking, my hair was extremely soft and tangle free once rinsed.
Packed with kelp seaweed, avacado oil and Ginseng, to strengthen, hydrate, condition and take frizz. Love it!
Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel (Deluxe mini) RRP £16
I was impressed with this cleanser. A lovely soft rose scent, this gentle gel to oil texture cleanser easily mented away my make up with a few circular motions.
Caprea Shield Serum with Vitamin B3 (Full Size) RRP £36.90
I’ve applied 4/5 drops each morning the past couple of days before moisutiser and make up. This soaks well into the skin without leaving a greasy layer.
This serum is packed with Niacinamide, which helps your skin grow a barrier which retains moisture and protects against UV damage.
KOKO Coconut Milk
I’m a fan of coconut milk, but not keen on the flavour of this brand, however Coconut is an acquired taste, if I wasn’t a fan I wouldn’t be too impressed to receive this.
Overall I was happy with this month’s box, however there was definitely room for improvement.
Roccabox is no longer a ‘Beautybox’, as over the last 12 months the products are predominatly skin care based, which to me is disappointing.
Since September 2021, the monthly price increased (including delivery) from £13.95 to £18.95.
‘The reason for this price increase is so it gives us more scope to work with brands of all sizes. We are about beauty discovery so you will still be discovering the best brands around’
For the price increase I would of hoped for a bit more variety, a few eyeshadow palette, more lip scrubs, lip tint, coloured eyeliners, make up bags, hair accessories… something that brings a little more excitement.
What did you think of this months box?
