Oui Please Subscription Box Review – Vol 1.4
Oui Please is a 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!
This is my packing slip for the box. (I’m not sure if they always included these and I just missed them, but this is the first time I’ve seen one).
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).
This magazine is great for finding items you wished you had received! (At least there are swaps!)
Life is Beautiful T-Shirt – Value $40
This shirt is 100% cotton, and the material has a good weight to it. (It isn’t one of those almost see-through white shirts).
Betchy Sketch Coasters – Retail Price listed as $20 (my estimated value $4?)
I had seen a few comments about the coaster retail value, and now that I have them in my hands I understand why the $20 retail price feels a little crazy. They are so thin:
The designs are cute, and the flip side features different colors, but they are a one-time use item, and definitely not worth $20 in my opinion.
I had a hard time finding this exact item online, so I’m just using the pricing from Oui Please. I can always use SPF, and I like how quickly this one dries – no strong scent either.
PIER Body Caresse Agrume – Retail Value $80
(The current exchange rates put this body cream closer to $70). It has a strong grapefruit scent which I like, and the formula is very thick and moisturizing. It’s not an item I would spend $70 or $80 on, but a nice indulgence!
Doux Me Rose Mist – Value $35 (Current exchange rate = about $22)
There are two options of this mist subscribers may receive: Rose or Orange Blossom. I found this mist very hydrating and refreshing – but that goes for any water mist I’ve tried! I wish I would have received the Orange Blossom scent though – rose isn’t my favorite scent, and applying it to my face isn’t ideal.
Graine de Pastel Rich Hand Cream – Value $30
Graine de Pastel Rich Face & Body Balm – Value $50
This face and body balm has a whipped consistency to it, and goes on much lighter than I was expecting. It is scented though, so it isn’t something I would use on my face.
The hand cream has a similar scent (and color) and is a heavier cream. I like both of these products – I’m having a hard time describing the scent, though!
La Fare 1789 Lavender Flowers – Value listed $20
(I couldn’t find this exact item on the La Fare 1789 website, so I’m using Oui Please’s listed price). Lavender is one of my favorite scents, so this little jar is going straight to my linen closet! (I’m a little obsessed with Trader Joe’s Lavender Dryer Bags, so this will just extend my lavender/laundry plan!)
Ladies & Bees Earrings H21 – Value $50
These earrings have a repeated hexagon shape design:
I normally don’t wear silver jewelry, but I love the simple design of these!
Confiserie Stanislas Nougat – Value listed from Oui Please $20
This is the first time I’ve needed to take a side shot for a piece of candy – but this nougat bar looks incredibly indulgent:
I’m guessing $20 is a little high even imported to the US, but I couldn’t find this exact item online.
Lulu en Provence Ecru Clutch – Value $40
This clutch will make a sturdy makeup bag (the canvas fabric is pretty substantial). Plus I like that Reveuse means dreamer in French!
Verdict: I’m happy with my Oui Please box! I think the two items that seem substantially overpriced are the coasters and the nougat candy, but even if I didn’t count those values at all I’m happy with what I received for what I paid. (I signed up with a 20% off coupon for an annual subscription, so I’m paying even less than the $150 a box cost).
I would recommend this box if you are looking for a luxe box from France that will be largely made up of beauty products, with some home, fashion and food items as well. (I seriously love the actual box Oui Please sends too – it is by far the nicest and most reusable package I’ve come across from subscription boxes). If you are looking to get at least $400 worth of products every box, I would recommend against it – it seems like they don’t always deliver in that department, or sometimes do with values that can seem over inflated.
To be fair to Oui Please though, they are sending items that are actually from France, and I imagine have to be bought months in advance. Exchange rates can vary significantly in that time, and there are shipping and duties/customs as well, so a box that was worth $400+ a month or two ago, might be worth less today. Either way, I feel like I got my money’s worth.
What do you think about the latest Oui Please box? Any items from the mini-mag you didn’t get that you want to swap for?
