RoccaBox May Edit

The May edition of Roccabox has arrived and this month it is a collaboration with Lauren Maher, the blogger behind Sassy In The City, someone I have never come across till now. I really like that Roccabox is collaborating with bloggers to create a box of products, it makes it a little bit different to any other beauty box I have subscribed too and it is an intriguing concept that has introduced me to some amazing products, brands and some new bloggers!

RoccaBox May Edit
 Again, this box features five products and every single one of them I am pleased to see and will use.

So the biggest item in the box this month is the Wilkinson Sword Intuition and the warmer weather will (eventually) arrive and that means no more tights, leggings or trousers, so yeah the legs will need sorting.
RoccaBox May Edit
Whilst I am still using Inhibitif on my legs, which means I don't shave as often as I used too, I always need to have a razor handy and this one happens to be a four blade razor, so no need to keep going over the same part of your leg to remove all the hair and the inclusion of the gentle creamy soap that lathers and moisturises during shaving makes it an even easier task. 

Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Body Lotion - I am a big fan of this brand, more so because it can be found in Sainsbury's and is so reasonably priced I always end up with a few bits in my basket.

The body lotion itself has a really lovely rich formula which includes Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and gold of pleasure oil and it leaves my skin feeling just incredibly moisturised and hydrated.

MONU Skin Hydrating Mask is the most expensive item in the box, it retails for around £30 and as a brand, I am always impressed by what I use.  The mask itself works to condition skin to leave it looking and feeling super fresh. 
It contains Royal Jelly, Evening Primrose Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil to promote skin suppleness whilst Geranium Essential Oil and Kaolin Clay work to keep your complexion cleansed and refreshed. Designed for dry or sensitive skin, you only need to use this mask twice a week and it is just such a lovely treat.

Nail Polish by IZ - I was introduced to IZ recently and it is such a lovely brand. In this box, I have the shade "Forget me Not" which is a really pretty pastel powder blue. 
What I love about this polish is not only how dinky the bottle is, but the short fat brush makes painting nails an absolute breeze, one stroke and you are done. The formula is referred to as being a plumping gel effect and it was developed for easy application and rich glossy colour. 

The final item in the box comes from Glo & Ray and it is the Longwear Precision Eyeliner. Described as being an intense smudge proof colour, the easy-to-control tip enables you to draw lines with relative ease. 

Available in black or brown it retails for just £6.90 and is a bit of a bargain.  I hardly ever wear eyeliner, but I have tried this and did find it to be one of the easiest eyeliners that I have tried to use.

I am really impressed with this box and I am glad to have been introduced to some new products and brands that I haven't yet tried or come across. You can subscribe to Roccabox for just £10 per month (plus £3.95 p&p) and can cancel it at any time. For more information and to sign up, everything you need to know is here.
