Today’s blog post features my unboxing and review of the August Roccabox and this month they’ve paired up with fashion, beauty, travel, fitness and lifestyle blogger Em Sheldon who blogs at Emtalks and it’s such a good all-rounder and boasts generous sized beauty goodies from brands we all love and know and a little something from Miss Patisserie who do the most indulgent bath treats which also look the part too!

If you’re new to Roccabox then they enlist the help of a beauty blogger to put their favourite picks forward inside each edition which is pretty unique and isn’t something that’s been done before. If you’re interested in signing up don’t forget to use my exclusive 10% off code at the end of this post!

Here’s some of Em’s favourite picks that have made their way inside the August box: 

Up first and just one my favourites from the line-up is the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick (Travel Size) in the shade Drivers Seat which is a very wearable warm pink. Described as an eight hour wear liquid matte lipstick with a lightweight comfortable formula, it promises to stays put and appear fresh as the first swipe. The formula is also infused with the Smashbox Primer Oil which provides comfortable wear and highly pigmented colour. I really love the applicator, it’s different from your typical doe-foot applicator and has a bit of a point at the end of it which really makes for an easier and more precise application. This really does go on beautifully and opaquely in one single swipe and wears really well too without leaving your lips craving for moisture and I’d say it definitely lived up to its “Always On” name!

When bath time treats smell and look good enough to eat you just know you’re in for a real treat and the Miss Patisserie Sea Salt Bath Melt (RRP £4.50) not only looks the part in the form of an adorable cupcake but it smells pretty incredible too with a refreshing fragrance. With nourishing cocoa and shea butter, it moisturises deep into the skin providing your body with vital antioxidants and minerals. Each Cupcake Bath Melt is sprinkled with detoxifying salts and decorated with cosmetic grade shimmer to help you glow even more!

On the skin care front is the Elemis Hydra-boost Day Cream (Travel size), an intensively hydrating cream that promises to banish areas of dryness to leave your skin feeling smooth and soft. Enriched with an expert blend of hyaluronic acid, marsh samphire extract and starflower oil to strengthen your skin’s natural moisture barrier, it also contains organic myrtle and vitamin E to protect your skin against free radical damage. 

Up next and to fake that summer glow is the revolutionary and first of its kind the St Tropez Self Tan Express Face Sheet Mask (x1 Worth £5.00), a fool-proof way to achieve a radiant, healthy glow to suit your skin tone. The depth of the tan can also be controlled depending on how long you leave it on for. I’m really looking forward to trying this – thanks Roccabox!

Lastly we have the Nails Inc Nail Kale Polish (Full size RRP £15.00) in the shade Claremont Street which is a lovely season appropriate shade. This is the first nail care nail polish formulated with anti-oxidant Kale, which helps to nourish, protect and make stronger your nails.

My Verdict

After last month’s skin care dominated box, this month’s Roccabox is back to its usual great self and is definitely an edit that ranks high on my list when it comes to my favourite boxes from them. Line-up wise, the August box was much more balanced with a mixture of full sizes and good sized samples in comparison to last month and included mainly brands we all love and know as well as a lovely introduction to up and coming brand Miss Patterisie who now also stock their products at Boots so be sure to check them out as they really do produce lovely cruelty-free bath and body treats. All in all, I’ve really enjoyed unboxing this month’s edit plus it was also exciting to see a fairly new launch from St Tropez – the beauty of beauty boxes! Costing only £13.95 a month, you really can’t go wrong with Roccabox, it’s the perfect guilt-free treat for any beauty lover.
