What's Inside January's Roccabox?

Thursday, 23 January 2020


-If a product is marked with a * then it was PR/Gifted to me. This post contains no paid content-
 January's Roccabox theme focuses on getting your skin looking nice and glowy after Christmas and my skin definitely needs some TLC! It's not looking great right now because obviously it's been Christmas and I definitely ate way too many Lindt Lindor chocolates, I've also been unwell with a bad cold at the beginning of January and I'm feeling a bit hormonal too, so yeah it's all fun and games here lol, not. 

Inside this month's box, all but one of the products are full size which I think is great! 


First up is the Dirty Little Secret Jelly Blush in either the shade Apricot or Exposed RRP £12*. As Roccabox explain in the leaflet in the box, the blush is in between sheer and densely pigmented so it can leave you with a wash of colour or can be build up to a pop of colour if that's your preferred look. I find jelly products really satisfying to use and the DLS one kind of reminds me of Colourpop's Super Shock Blushers and Highlighters but not as pigmented. I got the shade Exposed and I think it's nice to use when I'm having a more natural, minimal makeup day to just lift your complexion. 


Next is the St Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist (14ml) RRP £5* which I've actually not tried because I very rarely wear fake tan as I find it's a bit of a faff if I'm being honest and most of the time I think it doesn't look right on me. I guess I'm just used to looking pale all of the time lol. So I can't say if it's good or not.




The Daily Concepts Mother of Pearl Sponge RRP £6.95* is probably the product which intrigued me the most in this month's box. I do like something that works in more ways than one. It's a soap sponge which you can use either on your face or body as an exfoliating cleanser. I've been using it on my body instead of my face as I find my face doesn't like cleansers in a soap bar form usually but I think it worked pretty well as a body cleanser/exfoliator. It's not super abrasive but it does enough to notice a difference so I do think it's worth trying if you're into multi-functional products or trying to save some space in your bathroom!


The Bang Beauty Blush Brush RRP £13.98* has been designed to work with powder blushers because of the rounded shape. I think it's a nice blusher brush and works well in terms of application as it's not super dense but not super flimsy. But I don't know if I'd spend £13.98 on it just because I usually buy the majority of my brushes from Spectrum and they're actually cheaper to buy.

Lastly is the BeautyPro Brightening Collagen Sheet Mask with Vitamin C RRP £4.95* which I was excited to try as I really want to add some more products containing Vitamin C to my routine and the mask contains a mixture of Vitamin C, herbs and botanicals which all help to reduce pigmentation and brighten a dull complexion. I am trying to cut back on sheet masks or opt for ones that are biodegradable ideally but I thought I'd still give it a whirl. It worked okay and left my skin feeling a lot softer and plumper. I can't say much on the pigmentation reduction claims as I don't really have any pigmentation issues. But overall it was a nice, refreshing sheet mask to use.
