Oui Please Subscription Box Review – Vol 1.6
Oui Please is a subscription box that brings you the best of France every other month.
The packaging is gorgeous and I’ve been reusing the boxes for storage. I always find myself marveling at the packaging of these boxes and wondering how much money goes into both the boxes and the mini magazine.
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)
COUPON: Use coupon code OUINOEL to save 20% off your first box.

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your Subscription List or Wish List!
Ships to: US
The box comes with a mini mag – 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!)
1951 Maison Francaise Card Holder – Retail Value Listed $60
In the spoilers for this box, Oui Please revealed that some subscribers would be receiving the 1951 clutch. I assumed that would be the regular sized clutch, but this is still cute. And it has the signature lining:
To give a better idea of how small it is, here it is next to my iPhone 6+:
I love the brown/grey color of this leather, too.
On to the jewelry!
Mirgiole Sorbonne Earrings – Retail Value $60
These are minimal and delicate – I’m a fan! And according to the Mirgiole site they are 24K gold (plated?) too!
Tassia Canellis Bracelet – Retail Value $50
This piece is a Oui Please exclusive! (I think this is the first box they’ve done exclusives for?) It’s a super delicate piece (which I love) and I think the pearl detail is perfect. Here it is on:
(Please ignore the fitness tracker!) And here is the clasp:
It’s definitely on the smaller side for wrists, so I imagine it wouldn’t fit everyone.
Petit Parisienne Candle in Spices of Christmas – Retail Value $30
This is the only home item in the catalog for this box, and I’m glad I got it! I love getting candles and home items in subscription boxes, (I don’t think I’m the only one, either!). This candle is made with 100% soy wax, and I like the spice scent too, so I’m happy!
L’attelier Carmelized Walnuts – Retail Value $15
L’attelier Dark Milk Chocolate Disks – Retail Value $25
There are a few subscription boxes that are for me that my husband Eric is always interested in…because of the treats. (Another example is POPSUGAR Must Have). He claimed these and enjoyed them – his favorite were the chocolate disks!
Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Spray – Value $25
I’m not always a fan of perfume in subscription boxes, but I usually like the Atelier Cologne scents, and this one smells great to me! (This wasn’t listed in the booklet, though).
Harem des Sens Fabulous Skin Milk – Retail Value $30
The consistency of this product is somewhere between a lotion and a liquid. (I guess that’s why the call it skin milk!) You can use it as a lotion, or add a few drops to a bath. I haven’t tried it in a bath yet, but I am impressed with how quickly it absorbed when I applied it to my skin. It is a fragranced lotion, but it the scent isn’t too strong for me.
Lebon Toothpaste in Cinnamon Mint – Value $10
Luxury toothpaste = something I would never buy on my own, but I totally appreciate the packaging! The scent of the cinnamon flavor is great, too. I actually received this item once before from Oui Please, so I was a little surprised to get a repeat. Oh well, at least it is a useable repeat item!
Verdict: This box has an estimated retail value of $305. I’m using Oui Please provided retail values for most of that estimate, so it might be a little inflated. I’m happy with the contents of this box – everything feels special (thanks in part to the amazing packaging).
I think it is really important to call out how much boxes vary subscriber to subscriber. This box feels like more of a gamble than most subscription boxes, so I would advise looking at the comments on past reviews to see what others receieved if you are considering subscribing. (I think this box might have less variation than previous boxes, though).
What do you think of the Oui Please 1.6 box?
