Oui Please Volume 4.2 Review
Little Market Farmers Market Bag, Large – Retail Value $16
The Little Market is a registered 501c3 charitable organization that focuses on empowering women around the world by giving them jobs that aloe them to grow their financial independence and leadership. This 12″ x 12″ tote was actually made in Bangladesh with local materials by women in rural areas. I definitely think this bag has a French theme, but I am not sure how it fits in the claim of this box having “100% French-made products.” I am happy to support a charitable organization that empowers women, but I do think it was interesting that while this has a French theme, it wasn’t made in France. Either way, though, I think the bag is perfect for carrying fresh produce and bread when I go to the local farmer’s market!
Maison Close Belle de Jour Seamless Culotte Panty – Retail Value $39
Maison Close’s motto is “dressing up nudity,” and this French brand has been expanding its high-end lingerie since opening in 2006. This sheer black mesh panty is definitely the fanciest pair of underwear I have ever owned, and I am loving it. I put this on for the first time on International Women’s Day, and I definitely think this is how all women should celebrate that day going forward. This panty is cut from a single piece of sheer black mesh, and it is seamless. The quality is definitely there, and I am happy to have such a luxurious piece from a subscription box rather than having to pay full price.
Atelier Paulin Customized 14k Gold Letter Bracelet – Listed Value $70
This was a capsule collection created just for Oui Please, and it features a 14k yellow gold letter on a black silk and lurex ribbon. I appreciate the quality of the letter on the ribbon, however, this doesn’t feel like a bracelet – there is no clasp or closure other than the ribbon being tied in a knot, so it feels more like a charm that should be placed on a different setting. I wasn’t sure how to value this, either; you can buy a full name on this same ribbon setting for $155 here.
Pricy, luxe, French skincare for the win! This thin and lightweight day cream is a serum/moisturizer hybrid and I was happy with how quickly this absorbed into my skin. I love the glass packaging this comes in, and I was really impressed with the ingredients list- the first ingredient is rose water!
Canasuc Rouge L’Accroche Coeur – Retail Value $11.53 (€10,20)
I love tea, and these heart-shaped sugar molds are the perfect accent to a good cup. There were a few sugar crumbs in my box, but all of these hand-crafted hearts arrived safely from France where they were made. I love the touch of whimsy one of these hearts adds to a cup of tea.
Soumkine Notebook No. 7 – Retail Value $6.78 (€6)
This notebook is actually a small universal planner! The pages are lightly gridded to allow you complete customization for your journaling or scheduling needs. This style would probably work perfectly for those who use a bullet journal, but it is going to work just as well for me and my grocery list! I love that this paper is fountain-pen friendly so the ink shouldn’t bleed through, and the florist on the front cover is charming.
Anne Semonin Gentle Mistletoe Shampoo, 200 mL – Retail Value $31.65 (€28.00)
Anne Semonin Botanical Conditioner, 200 mL – Retail Value $31.65 (€28.00)
I LOVE that we got a full-size shampoo and conditioner pairing! The shampoo is made with extracts of mistletoe, fennel fruit, yarrow, and chamomile to provide a deep cleanse while soothing a sensitive scalp. The shampoo provided a bit too much of a cleanse for my curly hair (probably because the second ingredient is SLS), but I enjoyed the light botanical scent and how my scalp felt. The conditioner was a real winner, though. It has the same botanical extracts as the shampoo, and this left my hair feeling silky smooth.
The Verdict: This was my first experience with Oui Please, and I really loved it! Every single item was high-quality, and I loved the charm of France that was evident throughout the box. Value-wise, this box promises a value of at least $300 in every box, and by my math, this box had a total value of $308.61. If you love the French aesthetic, I highly recommend using the HIVER30 coupon to save 30%. There is a big difference between paying $150 and $105 for this box, and I think the cost you pay will play a role in your happiness in the value.
