OuiPlease Volume 1.2: Dreaming of Normandie

If you haven't heard of OuiPlease it's one of the newest and much anticipated subscription box to hit the market. I think a big reason for all the chatter about the box is because of the price. The OuiPlease box ships 6 times a year and a single box is $175, a month-to-month subscription will run you $150 and a yearly subscription is $650. Now those prices are super high but the company announced that the first box would be valued at over $400, which is was. Per the OuiPlease website your special delivery will feature a surprise selection of products, including the very best France has to offer in beauty, jewelry, accessories, apparel, home and epicure.

Price: $108-$175 every two months depending on subscription commitment. 

The Good:

Luxury products: The boxes are filled with name brands that would be considered luxurious.

Variety: This box isn't just beauty products. It will have jewelry, apparel, home goods, etc.

Information: They include their own magazine that talks about the products in the box as well as other products.

Pricing Structure: They offer one-time, monthly or yearly subscriptions. It would be nice to see a 6 month (3 box) subscription tier.

The Not So Good

Price: The price is way high but at the same time you will hopefully get what you pay for.

Referrals: I would like to see a referral program. If you can convince someone to spend this much money on a box you should get a little thank you treasure.

This is inside the shipping box.

The main box has all the treasures inside. This booklet is shipped with every box and has the product info on all the items contained in the boxes.

Contents of the Volume 1.2 OuiPlease Box:

Zadig & Voltaire Green Scarf. Value = $150.00

Ozone Knee-High Socks. Value = $25.00

Florence De La Peschardiere necklace. Value = $60.00

Le Dernier Sou Rope bracelet with Lindauer Coin. Value = $25.00

Charly James Gold-Plated Earrings. Value = $50.00

Sothys Paris Black Mascara. Value = $26.00

Talika Eye Gel. Value = $50.00

Nominoë Foam Face Cleanser. Value = $20.00

Hediard Metal Box Caramel. Value = $25.00

Palais Des Thes Le Citron Black Tea. Value = $15.00

The value of this second box is $446.00. They are staying consistent with the over $400 value which is awesome! I really love the long necklace with the beads on the ends. I have no idea how or when I will wear it but I love it. I also looking forward to trying the Sothys mascara. Sothys is usually only available in salons at regular retail price so I'm excited to be able to try their products through a subscription box. I'm also looking forward to the face cleanser and eye gel. The scarf is super soft but I'm not sure what makes it worth $150.00. The caramels are delicious and I wish I got the green tea instead of black tea but I think I will like the lemon flavor. 
The items I'm not too excited about are the knee socks, they aren't something I will wear. The coin rope bracelet is also not something I will wear but I think it's neat that they are using old coins to make them. I love that the Charly James earrings are super light weight but they aren't my style. They are a little too geometric for me. 

Verdict: It's a lot of money but it definitely has value and some very cool French items in it.
