Roccabox August 2017 Edit | Curated by Em Sheldon*


I love Roccabox. For so many reasons. I love the fact that each month, they collaborate with a different blogger; who hand picks and curates a mix of products that they love to share with us. I love the branding and packaging - boasting rose gold / pink / marble vibes that make up every blogger's dreams. I love their social media accounts - which are pretty AF. And although this is a PR sample, I also love the price these boxes retail for - at just £10 a month [plus postage] it's one of the most affordable options out there; hand delivering beautiful products to your door from some pretty impressive brands.



August's Roccabox is curated by Em Sheldon who blogs at EmTalks - a girly I already follow on pretty much all her socials, for fitness inspo and beaut imagery. I'm sure you probably follow her too, her following has got pretty immense and she's won a shedload of awards... but if not, you know what to do guys. Em's edit is one of the best Roccaboxes I've seen so far - and that is a big shout, as I've fallen deeply in love with every single one of these beautiful boxes that I've tried so far. Once you see the products in this month's box though, you'll see why I'm buzzing so much over it.



Miss Patisserie Sea Salt Bath Melt, RRP £4.50, Full Size

As well as being the prettiest bathbomb you'll ever see, this Miss Patisserie Melt smells unreal. Like I could just sit and sniff it all day; it's gorgeous. These beaut cupcake inspired Bath Melts are available in different scents too, when you shop online. They're the perfect, cutest gift idea [be this a gift to you or a friend] and I was made up to see this nestled in the pink wrapping.



Miss P are a vegan company; who use natural ingredients to bring out the best in your skin and to create products that are totes Instagrammable. This Bath Melt has been created to bring back memories of holidays past, with it's fresh, ocean inspired scent. The salt works to detoxify and cleanse the skin; whilst cocoa & shea butter nourish the skin.


OFFER  : Free Monoi Oil [worth £13.50] when you spend £30 at www.miss-patisserie.com. Simply enter code ROCCABOX30 at the checkout before the end of September 2017.


Elemis Hydra Boost Day Cream, RRP £39 [for Full Size], Sample Size

I've never used Elemis before like, at home - mostly because of that steep-old-price tag tbh, but I've had treatments in Spas in the past where they've used it. I always perve on its clean, luxurious and minimal packaging and regard it highly within the ranks of skincare. So it's nice to see this brand appear in Roccabox.




The Elemis Hydra Boost Day Cream is a deeply hydrating, nourishing lotion; rich in anti-oxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, Starflower Oil and Vitamin E. It works to lock in moisture, strengthen the skin's natural defenses and leaves it plump, smooth and supple. I'm looking forward to trying it tbh - sounds like it will help my somewhat confused skin.


OFFER : Use code EMSHELX at www.elemis.com to get 10% off your first order [valid until the end of September 2017, on full size products only.]



St Tropez Self Tan Express Face Sheet Mask, RRP £8, Full Size

I've legit wanted to try one of these sheet masks for so long [I blame Leah who blogs at DevotedToPink - I swear she had one of these on Instagram Stories once and my attention was pure piqued.] So when I opened up the lid of my Roccabox and saw it looking back at me, I defo did a big, girly shriek of excitement.




I've tried [and enjoyed] St Tropez tanning products before, so I know this is going to be good. This is the first of its kind, a tan-infused sheet mask which tans your face to your desired depth of glow - whilst also deeply hydrates skin with Hyaluronic Acid. This is SUCH a good idea - I'm a little wary sometimes of putting fake tan on my face, in case it makes me break out like a mega-beast; but this purpose built mask will totes have my back. Oh, I'm loving the brands in this month's box!!



Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Drivers Seat, RRP £19 [Full Size], Sample Size

This is, without a doubt, my FAVOURITE PRODUCT out of this month's box and possibly all boxes in life ever. Hellooooo Smashbox you little fox, get in my life pls. I adore this shade - it's so, so wearable; and it applies like an actual living dream. I've never tried Smashbox before; but thanks to our girl Em, I've bagged myself a winning item.




Literally as soon as I unboxed this Liquid Lipstick I was wearing it. It's  become firmly embedded in my beauty regime - I absolutely love it. And although it isn't classed as being full size, this tube is still pretty big and will last me for ages. It's a gorgeous matte lipstick which doesn't pure dry out and go flaky and it lasts the test of time and doesn't pure smudge everywhere. So you can neck on this weekend and down those Jágers without having to worry about looking like The Joker



Nails Inc NailKale in Claremont Street, RRP £15, Full Size

How beautiful is this nail polish, please? I ADORE mint, duck egg green kinda shades - especially in the Summer, to contrast against a bangin' tan [be this real or from a bottle, like mine.] I love Nails Inc products too, so I was legit buzzin' when I noticed this was included in my August Roccabox.




NailKale has been formulated with, erm, Kale - as the name suggests. This means that when applied to your nails, they get all the goodness that health gurus swear by; by guzzling this stuff. It works to nourish, protect and strengthen nails [which, if you've read my blog before, you'll know I totes need help with.] I tried Kale once and it was frigging RANCID, so I'm glad I don't have to eat it anymore to feel the benefits.



There are some AMAZING brands in this month's box, with some fab offers included too. I was so, so impressed as I unwrapped it all - Em did good! I've been desperate to try one of the St Tropez tanning masks for aaaages, so I was made up to see it nestled in with this month's products - and the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick is the nicest shade, I've been wearing it loads. The NailKale polish is a beautiful shade from a brand I already use, Elemis is my bitta high end indulgence and I LOVE Miss Patisserie already, so there's not a single product I won't use or weep over-excitedly about in this month's box!


If you wanna find out more, or subscribe to get your hands on the prettiest beauty box in town, you can do here.

Their offerings are consistently incred and for the price, you can see why it's so worth it!


Have you tried any of this month's products or brands before? Does Roccabox look like a beauty club you wanna be a member of? Which subscription services have you tried / do you use?
