Glossybox August 2016 ~ charged me $42 for a $21 box / called them again and say they have fixed it

Not terribly happy with Glossybox – watch the video to find out why.  I had to call then again today, and they had to re-create the two boxes I was told by the last person would ship, and did not. So now, hopefully the bonus boxes will ship. (It’s a good thing I had the day off work to make calls.) They are currently out of the July boxes and I didn’t like the August box enough to get another August box, so we’ll see how September is. Most of the stuff in this box is sample/travel size.

Here’s what was in this box:

Invisibobble hair rings – full size $6
Too Faced Mascara Melt Off – sample 0.04 oz – full size is 0.23 oz for $17  - RV $3
Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream - $19
De Bruyers After Sun Lotion – full size - $12
Borghese Fango Delicato – 1 oz travel size – full size is 7 oz for $35 – RV $5
Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil  – 1 oz travel size – full size is $20 – RV $6

Total RV (retail value) for this box = $51
This is so poor in comparison to Boxycharm (link below) where I always get $100 or more RV for my $21
