Oui Please Subscription Box Review – Vol 3.2
Oui Please is a subscription box that brings you the best of France every other month. In every box you can expect a mix of beauty, jewelry, fashion, home, and food items.
Important to know – not all boxes are the same. This is a subscription that sends variations out.
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)

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).
Now, on to the items!
La Cocotte Paris Luxembourg Pouch – Retail Price Listed $50
This adorable little pouch is coated in wax, so it’s much more durable than your standard canvas.
It measures 7 by 9.5 inches and features gold hardware:
And it is completely lined. (The lining doesn’t seem to be water/stain resistant, though.)
Beret – Retail Value $59
FYI – there is no tag or brand info for this beret, so I’m just listing the retail price from the booklet. I’d guess this is a wool blend.
And, the beret is such a classically French item that it totally makes sense to include it in this box, BUT… I cannot pull off this look. At all.
But for thorough review purposes, here is a photo I didn’t really want to take:
Oui Please includes a list of tips for wearing the Beret:
- Frame your face.
- Don’t wear it directly on top.
- Wear it slouchy.
Still, a fail for me after multiple attempts, but I’m hoping other subscribers had better luck!
Les Nereides Diamantine Earrings – Retail Value $66
These earrings measure 1/2 inch across.
The stones are milky white, but slightly transparent and have a subtle sparkle when they catch the light.
POP UP Paris Candle – Value Listed $40
(FYI – I’ve received these in a few Oui Please boxes in the past, and they previously listed the Retail Price as $35. Not sure if currency exchanges could explain that change, but wanted to mention it.)
I received the scent Mountwalk – a blend of rosemary, peppermint, and vetiver. It reminds me of classic men’s cologne.
And the nice bonus about POP UP candles is that 1 in 50 will include a 0.15ct diamond! (If you’ve ever received a diamond in a candle, please let us know!)
Lull Regenerating Hand Cream – Retail Price Listed $86 (Buy online for $62 + $28 shipping to the US)
This hand cream is rich but doesn’t have a greasy finish. And it absorbs very quickly, too. I’m not a huge fan of the powdery scent (I prefer my skincare items unscented when possible), but this scent is pretty light.
ILES Formula Sampler Kit – Retail Price Listed $25
FYI – ILES FORMULA sells a travel kit that includes the comb and 4 sets of these foil packet trios for $28.50, so I don’t know how Oui Please is listed 1 foil packet + $6 comb as $25 retail.
The shampoo, conditioner, and finishing serum are all fabulous and luxe – but getting a foil sample packet in a $150 box frustrates me. (I get annoyed with foil packets in a $10 beauty box!) In my opinion, this should have been a full-sized item.
Again, it feels necessary to call out the price discrepancy with what Oui Please listed in the booklet vs what I found online. I typically give them some leeway since many products are from France and cannot be bought in the US without paying customs, shipping, etc., but listing $30 for these cookies seems excessive.
On to the cookies themselves, they were a treat for everyone who tried them!
Light, sweet, crisp and perfect for making Tiramisu! (Oui Please also included a recipe for Tiramisu.)
Verdict: I’m not going to calculate a value for this box since there are some pricing issues, but I’d recommend just looking at the items and ask if they are worth the box price for you. I signed up with a discount for an annual subscription, so this box only cost me about $76. That’s about $10.85 an item, and I’m happy with that value, but this wasn’t my favorite box because of the beret.
My complaining aside, I’m always impressed with the quality of the items Oui Please sends, and that holds true for this box, too.
