I do love a beauty subscription box. Containing some of the latest and greatest products on the market, they also allow you to try before you buy the full size version – double win!

This month, sees the launch of Roccabox (quite possibly the most beautifully presented and packaged subscription service I’ve ever seen) and the teaming up of bloggers and beauty insiders to showcase some of their most highly regarded handbag essentials. Taking the spotlight for April, I’m very excited to announce that I collaborated with the brand and have handpicked some of my very own hair, makeup and skincare essentials – all yours for £10… keep a look out for my cheesy grin on the flyer too…



John Frieda Original 6 Effects Serum (full size)
The ultimate multi-tasking hair serum. Cannot recommend this enough – I’ve been using it for YEARS. I smooth it through damp hair before blow-drying for heat protection and frizz control, but I also run it through the ends of my hair after tonging it, to seal in the waves and stop them dropping out. Oh and it smells dreamy too!

Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer
I first discovered Smith & Cult in the US, in the form of their super luxury nail polishes, so when they came to London AND launched lips, I was more than a little excited. I recently reignited my love for a gloss (it doubles the size of your pout), and this one smells like candy floss. If you get my favourite shade in your box (The Lovers), then I’d love to see a photo!

Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish
The ultimate nail brand, who hasn’t heard of Nails Inc?! Forever my favourite polishes, the gel version gives serious staying power to your mani, without the need for a UV lamp like other gel versions. My all time fave is the shade “Mayfair Lane’, keep your eyes peeled for this, it’s the perfect dusky pink.

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy
If you never use a hand cream, then scold yourself immediately. Hands take the biggest beating from continual washing and drying – and they’re also one of the biggest giveaways of age. Keeping them hydrated is a tip I took from my mum years ago, and so always have a little pot of this Crabtree & Evelyn in my handbag. This has quite a masculine scent to it, which I love!

Kure Bazaar The Natural Pedicure Ritual
If you follow me on Instagram (@prettyuglypics), then you’ll know I’m a huge fan of a face mask. Second to my face though, I love to give my feet the odd pampering treatment and this foot variety is perfect for a girl’s night in. Great pre-holiday too, it smoothes away dry skin, heals cracks and makes feet look far better in summer sandals. Goodbye trotters!
