Beauty Box 5 Review - July

Just got my July Beauty Box Five package in the mail!
After last month’s pretty crappy box, I was really curious to see what I’d get.  This box is really a make it or break it for me! They have been good for many months, but then bam, I start getting pretty boring things that aren’t worth my money! As you know this box is $12 a month for 4-5 products, so I really hope it delivers this time.
Here we go….July’s Beauty Box Five box! 


1)    Every Beauty Foot Smoother– (FULL SIZE)
Hmmm….I guess this is like a pumice stone? The packaging says this thing is great for hard to reach areas “like in between toes.” Um I’m sorry, this thing is at least an inch thick, that’s not gonna fit between my toes!  It also says you can use it dry and on other parts of the body.  That’s the only part that intrigues me since I already own a pumice stone. C might like this thing also, too bad it’s pink!
Full Size: $8.99 My Value: $8.99

2)    Jean Pierre Cosmetics Nail Polish Remover Wipes– 2 wipes
Now there’s something new!  Not. I’ve gotten these by several different brands before.   At first I thought they seemed cool, but one wipe won’t even work for a whole hand. I ended up breaking out my bottle of nail polish remover anyways. For the price, I rather buy a bottle that lasts me much longer!
Full Size: $3.99 for 10 wipes My Value: $0.79

3)  La Fresh Travel Lite Antibacterial Wipes – 8 wipes (FULL SIZE)
These look pretty convenient. The package is light and small which is nice for my purse. I always carry hand sanitizer with me, so these will be nice for when I run out. Too bad there aren’t very many in there though, 8 wipes isn’t much.
Full Size: $1.99 My Value: $1.99
 
4)   H2O Plus Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment – .27 oz
Looks like a regular old oil-free facial moisturizer. Too bad it doesn’t have SPF. That’s really all I have to say. 
Full Size: $36.00 1.7 oz. My Value: $5.72

5)  Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss – .11 oz (FULL SIZE)
I was really hopeful for this one, I love lip products.  They are my favorite things to get in my monthly beauty mailings.   Really, of all the things I saw in the box, I knew this was my favorite. Until I saw the color name…diamond.  I thought aw man, it’s gonna be a sheer light color.  Then I opened it.  It’s stinkin clear. Clear?!?!  Really? How lame.
Full Size: $14.00 My Value: $14.00

Final Cost: $12.00
Final Value: $31.49

Beauty Box Five…..you have officially been fired!!
I wouldn’t suggest it anymore guys.  They seriously used to be great, but something has definitely changed! Yeah the value may look good, but who pays $14 for CLEAR lip gloss? Certainly not me!
Any other beauty boxes out there I should try?  I currently get Ipsy ( a.k.a. Glam Bag) and Glossy Box.  I’m not a fan of Birchbox.
(Also, I swear I’m not a review blog….I just like sharing these things in hopes that other people will get to have the same fun that I do, or in this case so people can stay away!  I am not compensated in any way.)
(Oh and I just tried to go to the BB5 website and its conveniently down until the end July so I can't cancel.  I will definitely be emailing them though!)
