Oui Please Subscription Box Review – May 2015
Oui Please is a relatively new subscription box that brings you the best of France every other month. This is their third mailing.
The packaging is gorgeous and I’ve been reusing the boxes for storage.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Oui Please
The Cost: $150 per box (ships every other month)
The Products: An assortment of full sized French products worth $400+
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your Subscription List or Wish List!
The box comes with a mini mag Et Voila – it details all the different products you might have received in your box. (There are a variety of product combinations each subscriber will receive).
Eloise Fiorentino Collier Dunes Necklace – Value $100
FYI – for some of the items that I can’t find online, I’m using the value listed in the mini mag. I’m happy with this necklace! It is gold plated, and one of those pieces that is both delicate and a bit of a statement piece.
Ozone Classic No Show Socks – Value $10
These socks have a grippy part in the back of the heel to keep them from slipping – definitely useful for summer.
Tassia Canellis Golden Ring – Value $60
I love the chain aspect of this ring – but it is so tiny! It’s barely a midi ring on my pinky finger:
Oliv’ Radiance Elixir – Value $50
I like that this face oil is made with natural and organic ingredients. It’s a very lightweight formula too.
Oliv’ Beauty Oil – 2.5 oz Value $13
This beauty oil can be used for body, hair or added to a bath. I really like the scent of it!
La Fare 1789 Succulent Foot Cream – Value $15
This is another product that is made with organic and natural ingredients. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, but still interested in trying it.
La Fare 1789 Shampoo – Value $18
Unfortunately, this shampoo includes sulfates (which I prefer to avoid since my hair is color treated) so I’ll be passing it along to a friend.
Sothys Nail Lacquer in Rouge Nuit – Value $12?
I can’t find this nail polish online (and it isn’t listed in the booklet) so I’m guessing on the value. I love the color, but probably won’t use it until the fall arrives.
Rose Et Marius Soap in Grasse – 1.18 oz Value $6
This soap is the mini version, so I adjusted the price from what was listed in the booklet. It smells amazing – the most luxurious smelling soap I’ve ever come across!
Panier Des Sens Hand Cream in Lemon – 1 oz Value $7
This hand cream is one of my favorite items in the box – the formula is very moisturizing, and I love the light citrus scent.
I gave this sachet one sniff and then immediately put it in my linen closet! (I love all things lavender).
Epicerie de Provence Honey From Provence Candy Jar – Value $15
These hard candies look so good (the packaging is fab too). I was about to try one (probably try lots), but fortunately I read the ingredients first. These include wheat glucose syrup, so I don’t get to enjoy them – they will make a great little hostess gift though.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $302. From what I can tell in the comments, that’s on the better end of values for this box. I adjusted a few of the values from the values listed in the booklet (the mini soap value instead of the full-size value, for example), but even with the values of the booklet this box wouldn’t come to the $400 value promised by Oui Please. (Unless they are counting the value of the inner keepsake box?) Here is the quote from their site on value:
“OuiPlease Vol. 1.3: “A Breath of Provence” is valued at more than $400 per parcel.”
Value issues aside for the moment, I like this box. I think I’ll use almost everything, but I do wish there was more of a balance in items from accessories, beauty and home. (My box feels a little beauty heavy).
I paid less than $100 for this box since I signed up for an annual subscription with a 20% off coupon, so if they hadn’t promised a certain value, I wouldn’t even be talking about value in this verdict – I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth.
One thing I feel the need to call out – based on comments from other subscribers, it seems like the values of this box have ranged from the 200s-300s. Considering the value discrepancy, I would recommend keeping that in mind if you are thinking of subscribing.
What do you think of the latest Oui Please box?
