Roccabox is a UK beauty subscription box, which introduces affordable beauty brands. May’s box was the ‘Staycation’ edit. With the current lockdown situation, many of us have missed holidays or have needed an extra boost of self care. This box is perfect for a pamper session at home.
“We know it’s not the same as heading to Barbados, but it’s a little something that might brighten up your day.”
Due to popular demand, Roccabox have three versions of the Staycation edit, I was kindly gifted version three. This included six products (two full sized), retailing at £10(+pp) but with a value of over £42.
This included the following products:
MonuSkin Ginger & Lemongrass Bath & Body oil.
It’s designed to restore elasticity to your skin and if you like ginger, this smells amazing!
Roccabox tip: Add a small amount of MONUSpa Ginger & Lemongrass Body Oil to a warm bath or under the shower just before rinsing, the oil will instantly emulsify into a milk to leave your skin nourished with no oily residue.
Deluxe travel size, 40ml, £5.50
Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer
After your bath/shower, it’s worth giving your hair a treat too. This leave-in conditioner includes argan oil, coconut oil and abyssinian oil to restore damaged hair. Apply to clean, damp hair and style as normal. No rinsing required.
Travel sized, 30ml, £2.29
Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF50.
I and you should wear SPF on your face all year round. But, particularly with the increased activity in the sun during the summer. Lots of people are enjoying their gardens during lockdown, but don’t forget to protect your face! As I’ve still been teaching, this mini tube has been perfect for my handbag and topping up throughout the day.
Roccabox tip: Remember, the key is to wear SPF all the time, the sun can still damage the skin even if overcast! We have come to the rescue with our Murad City Skin Age Deference sunscreen, it even protects from blue light.
Deluxe travel size, 5ml, £6.50
Vitamasques Rose Gommage Pealing Gel
This is a gentle rose exfoliator that gently peels away dirt and dead skin. Apply and massage in for two minutes before rinsing. Rose provides an anti-inflammatory against redness, so is suitable for sensitive skin.
Roccabox tip: Exfoliation is the key to having smooth soft skin, and we have the ideal product for this, Vitamasques Rose Peeling Gel. This is a gentle rose exfoliator designed to purify pores and eliminate dead skin cells for a winning complexion. Trust us, this will be “the one”.
Travel size, 20ml, £7.99
AfterSpa Magic Makeup Remover Cloths
I love these cloths! I’ve collected a few different brands of them and they’re all brilliant. The AfterSpa cloth is no exception. It’s so soft and gentle on skin and most importantly – it works! It really does remove your makeup with just warm water. This cloth is just bigger than my hand, but is usable on both sides. You need to machine wash before your first use, but then it is reusable. I also used this to remove my peeling mask!
Full size, £5.50
FURR 3D Faux Mink Lashes
The lock down period has introduced many of us to Zoom calls! I’m guilty myself of putting make up on (and a nice top) purely for the meeting. These lashes can help with that look! This design is called ‘Gala’, they include glue adhesive.
Roccabox tip: No Staycation is complete without a little bit of glam. Whether you save these for a girl’s night out, or they get used for the next zoom quiz, FURR’s 3D Mink Lashes are the perfect addition to any look.
Full size, £15
A monthly box is £10 (+pp), but with my code VOLUBLE20, you can get it for £8!
