What's Inside December's Roccabox?

I always find myself signing up to beauty subscription boxes as a little monthly treat to myself but there's a lot to choose from these days and some are definitely better than others. Roccabox is a luxe monthly beauty box that is filled with 5-7 beauty products each month and they offer a nice range of products in each box. Every month's box has a theme and they kindly sent over their December box* which is all about party-ready necessities to make sure you're looking and feeling your best at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. Even if you're planning a quiet Christmas and New Year this year, like myself, most of the products in the box would make great additions to a nice self-care kind of pamper night.



First up inside the December box is a Steve Laurant Lip Gloss in "Peaches" or "Cafe" (full size) RRP £18.87*. I got the shade Cafe which is a gorgeous everyday kind of nude which you can't go wrong with really, can you? It's a comfortable lip gloss and not super sticky like some lip glosses I've received in subscription boxes before. It's definitely going straight into my makeup bag! (You can find a swatch at the end of this post).




There's also a Philip Kingsley Body Building Weightless Shampoo (60ml) RRP £7.80* which comes in a travel-friendly sized tube and is designed for fine, limp, flyaway hair, which basically describes my hair type to a T. I love a shampoo that adds volume and this definitely does that and I also like the fresh scent too. I haven't tried much from Philip Kingsley but I've never come across a product I don't get on with and this is another one to add to the list.




It also contains the Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask (30ml) RRP £12* which I actually already own and love! I only use it when I think my skin needs some extra hydration or if I've used a product that's made my skin feel a bit tight. I don't use it overnight because I just don't like wearing a face mask to bed. But I tend to pop it on for a couple of hours (usually when I'm watching the soaps in the evening) and it makes your skin feel nice and hydrated as well as freshening up your complexion. 



The next product is something I'm really intrigued about and can't wait to try out for myself! It's the Bowe Organics Lash Oil (10ml) RRP £19.99* and if you read my blog often then you'll probably know that I'm currently using an eyelash serum to help my lashes grow, so I'd love to see if the Bowe Organics Lash Oil works in the same way as the serum I'm currently using. It does contain ingredients that are proven to stimulate hair growth so I shall keep you updated when I begin testing it out soon!  






You also get a gorgeous eyeshadow from Luna by Luna (full size) in the shade Celeste RRP £12.86* which basically screams Christmas, right? I don't wear eyeshadow that often but when I do, I tend to gravitate towards browns, golds, and coppers as I find that those shades make my blue eyes pop, so this warm golden-amber shade is right up my street! It really is stunning and it blends out really nice with no fallout too. A definite fave of mine in this month's box!



Lastly is the Yeti & The Fox Good Night, Great Day Capsules RRP £5.99* which are supposed to stop you from getting a hangover?! You get 3 capsules in the sachet (enough for one night) and you take two when you start drinking and then the final one when you go home before bed - it'd be a great idea to leave the last capsule by your bathroom sink so you remember to take it. What's the science behind the capsules? They boost your liver function (via the antioxidant S-Acetyl Glutathione) which helps to speed up the breakdown of alcohol and they also help to increase your energy levels too. I haven't tried the capsules yet but if they do work then it's great to know that they exist, right?!




I think that this month's Roccabox would definitely make a great little self-care treat to yourself or a loved one. The December box is valued at a whopping £77.50 but can be yours for just £10 + £3.95 postage - it's such a bargain! I really like that every box has a theme and the products inside remain a mystery until you open your box, I think it makes it more exciting. It's also good to know that you can cancel at any time if you aren't happy with the boxes or just trying to save yourself some money. 

If you are interested in joining Roccabox then you will be billed on the 1st of the month and then the boxes are sent before the 7th of the month via Royal Mail. So there's still time to get December's box if you're interested in trying out the products I've received!
