Roccabox July 2017 | The Sunday Girl's Edit*

Beauty subscription boxes are nothing new, but Roccabox is new - promising a box with contents hand-picked by a different beauty industry insider each month, I was very kindly send July's box which was curated by the lovely Adrienne of The Sunday Girl blog. As one of my favourite bloggers, I was excited to see what Adrienne had chosen for her very own beauty box... When it arrived, I immediately fell a little bit in love with the rose-gold branding on the sleek white box, and of course the pretty pink shredded paper packaging! Have a peek at what I received and my initial thoughts...

July 2017 Roccabox
Ellis Faas Concealer | This is the only full-sized product in the box and, being from a brand I've not heard of previously, I'm excited to try it! The shade is S202 which should hopefully suit my skintone as I'm pretty fair-skinned, but I'm looking forward to giving it a go. The sleek, silver pen with built-in brush applicator is classy and feels sturdy, so it should be safe in my make-up bag. | RRP £22. Full-size.
Soap & Glory The Rushower Dry Shampoo | Dry shampoo is always handy to have and I'm excited to try this new one from Soap & Glory, which claims to have 'touch release' technology, releasing a burst of mandarin rose and bergamot fragrance when you work it into your hair. Sounds lovely, huh!? | RRP £4/200ml or £2.50/50ml. Sample worth £2.50.
Balance Me Congested Skin Serum | I actually already have a tube of this which I've not tried, so I'm really going to have to get my act together and give it a whirl. I'm not sure why I've not used it yet, to be honest, as my skin is the definition of congested and it basically sounds perfect for me! | RRP £16/15ml. Sample worth around £7.50.

MOA Green Balm | I'm not familiar with MOA, which stands for Magic Organic Apothecary, but I'm intrigued by this multi-use product which claims to be suitable for everything from healing chapped lips to combating scars and stretch marks, and can even be used as a cleansing balm! Sounds amazing, right!? I was impressed at how affordable this is, too. It's only a small sample but it seems the sort of product that will go a long way, so I'm hoping to get a decent trial from this.| RRP £6/15ml or £15/50ml.
Evolve Organic Beauty Radiant Glow Face Mask | Evolve is another brand I'm not familiar with, but I'm always happy to try new face masks! The Radiant Glow Face Mask contains raw cacao powder and clay to revitalise and purify, whilst coconut granules provide gentle exfoliation. I'd have liked a slightly bigger sample of this but I think I should get one good use from it, which should give me an idea of whether I like the mask. | RRP £20/60ml.
Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil | I love a good cleansing oil and I love Burt's Bees, so I was happy to see this in the box! It's a fair-sized sample and I think I'll take it to Vienna with me when I go next month. I do think the full-size is quite expensive, so I'm hoping to be wowed when I try this! | RRP £16.99/177ml. Sample worth around £2.83.

You get a double-sided card in the box telling you a little about each product, why it was chosen and what it does/how to use it. The card also offers discount codes (ranging from 15-20%) for three of the brands featured, plus a competition you can enter to win a product from a fourth brand - so if you like something you try, you're able to repurchase at a reduced price or maybe even win one! I was really impressed with July's box - it feels like a good mix of high street and high end, and of familiar and new-to-me brands.

Roccabox is available priced at just £10 per month here; it's a rolling monthly subscription after the first month, so you're billed on the first of each month and receive your box around a week later, and you can cancel at any time. You can also subscribe for a year for £100, meaning you effectively get two boxes for free! I was so impressed that it's such an affordable price, I wouldn't have been surprised if it had been £18-20 per month given the quality of products and the value being around the £35 mark. Have you heard of Roccabox before? Would you be happy to receive this box?
