Roccabox Review May 2017



This month Roccabox teamed up with the beautiful NewlyWed Lauren silvester of SassyInTheCity

Lauren has put together a fab edit and i am very impressed by this months products yet again very happy.  I don’t know how they do it for the £10 it Costs for the box.

Wilkinson sword – Intuition Razor

I was happy when I saw this i know how good they are i used to have one when they first came out years ago and I loved it, there’s no need for shaving gel when using this due to the built-in moisture bar which foams up when water is added, When using this you’re legs feel silky smooth and you can feel the bar moisturising your legs, Two jobs in one shaving and moisturising no more shaving rashes with this. Just shave and rinse and then pat your legs dry.  £8.99

Glo&Ray – Longwear Precision Eyeliner.

This is the best pen liner I’ve ever tried and that’s a lot. I found it really easy to do a cat eye and it was so nice to apply and it and this smudge proof liner has real staying power but is also easy to remove. This liner is great for wearing through the day and night to create a subtle cat eye or a smokey eye.  It’s also a bargain at £6.90

Mandara Spa – Amber Heaven Softening Body Cream.

I love this cream its a luxurious body cream which contains cocoa butter,  Vitamin E and Gold of Pleasure Oil (what a luxurious name) which leaves the skin feeling nourished hydrated and smelling gorgeous. A touch of Luxe to add to your skincare routine from one of the world’s top spa’s. At an affordable price Travel Size  (full size) £6.50. I’ll be buying it for sure.

IZ Beauty – Blooming Beautiful collection.

There were two beautiful spring shades a pink and purple.  I received the gorgeous purple (Forget Me Not) This is a gel polish which needs no UV or Soak-Off so it makes it a polish suitable for everyone.  This gorgeous sugar shade is perfect for spring and summer and gives your nails a gorgeous pop of colour. Im not really great with these types of nail polish i take a lot of meds so have a shaky hands and also because it’s small i am not always able to grip it. I’m getting better but I think with these pastel colours it tends to show up and mistakes. It is a great nail Polish though and takes out all the steps of a typical gel manicure  £6.00

Monu Skin – Hydrating Face Mask.

This is a wash off face mask which after just 15 minutes gives the skin so much Hydration its absolutely fantastic. Just what our skin needs. Use it twice a week after cleansing and toning its the perfect product to add to your skin care routine.  With royal jelly and evening primrose this leaves your skin feeling plumped and refreshed.

I’ve tried it on my arms and hands sue to having sensitive skin im not able to use some products,  I was shocked by the results, i applied a small amount onto the dry areas on my arms and left it for the 15 minutes it states and then wiped away with a warm cotton wool pad and the results were instant and even hours later my arms still feel hydrated and are so smooth and so soft. I’m actually now wearing it on my face overnight and im looking forward to seeing the results in the morning.  This is £29.95 for 100ml but you don’t need to use a lot and it will last a while so doesn’t work out to bad.

If you’re looking for a box that has it all then this is definitely for you. £10 plus P&P £3.95

Look incredible Review March

Look Incredible Review March 2017


Well i have to say im very impressed with this box.  Its my 2nd box and just like February box im very happy with what’s inside.

This month included

1. Bare minerals eye shadow quad – The A List


This is a very shimmery quad and its very pretty. The darker colour isn’t very pigmented and is very sheer but the bit i didn’t like about this quad was that it’s not great at blending.  I thought that it was just my lack of experience but after seeing others say the same thing I knew it wasnt just me. I do love the pretty colours and think it’s fab for an icy look.  My niece would love it dressing up as elsa.

2. Ilia lipstick – Tinted Lip Conditioner


This is lovely its quite sheer but can be built up and looks fantastic either way great for either a subtle look or built up for a bolder look.  Its lovely and creamy without feeling heavy, A lipstick you can wear all day and get moisturised lips at the same time.

3. Ciate Velvet nails kit – Velvet  Manicure


Well i must say im not really liking the velvet Manicure it just doesn’t look very good, I’m not really into the look of the velvet nails and it doesn’t feel like or look like velvet when i do it.  I do however really love the nail polish colour its very much the shade id pick, so that’s a plus.

4 fusion colour corrector – Prime Results,  Anti-Redness.


This is absolutely fantastic,  It works amazingly well and i was blown away when I first used it.  I have a lot of redness in my face and just a small amount helped to minimise the redness so much i didn’t even feel the need to apply any foundation. This on its own made the box worth the money to me. I don’t think id have come across this product otherwise. This is definitely part of my makeup routine now and I’ll be purchasing it again for sure. 10/10

5 Spa Retreats Signature – Softening hand And Body lotion


This is so softening and is perfect on youre whole body,  its smells divine doesn’t go really sticky and soaks into the skin really well.  It works lovely will a nice massage very relaxing.  (Unless you have fibromyalgia then a massage isn’t relaxing and causes a huge amount of pain)

They also added an extra which was the Max factor colour corrector stick


Even though it is a tester it was still a nice lititle extra.  I don’t really need the purple but I tried it out on different parts of my face and it just made me look grey so ill probably pass this on to one of my sisters.

My favourite this month was the fusion colour corrector,  it was just what I needed, You only need a very small amount so for me this will last a long time as I don’t need to wear makeup all the time in fact im not able to even put on my make up all the time so just adding some of the colour corrector makes me feel more human.
