OuiPlease Box - Vol 1.3 Breath of Provence

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. 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.

Each month the package comes with a French word on white paper. This one means discover.

Each box also comes with a note.

The inner box with a booklet that contains product info.

Here are all the treasures.

These are the earrings. They are super tiny but cute. 

Contents of the Volume 1.3 OuiPlease Box:

Tassia Canellis earrings. Value = $44.00

Oliv' Radiance Elixir. Value = $50.00

Oliv' Beauty Oil. Value = $35.00

La Fare En Provence Shampoo. Value = $25.00

La Fare En Provence Succulent Foot Cream. Value = $15.00

Coeur de Cigale Shower Gel. Value = $25.00

Lanier Des Sens Verbena Hand Cream. Value = $15.00

Rose et Marius Melon and Basil Soap. Value = $15.00

Plantes et Parfums Lavender Flower Sachet. Value = $15.00

Epicerie de Provence Honey Candy. Value = $15.00

Panier des Sens Honey Liquid Soap. Value = $20.00

Sothys lipstick. Value = $25.00

The value of this second box is $299.00. I'm actually wondering if I'm missing something from this box. They promised value of their boxes are $400 and I noticed a lot of people received a jewelry item from Eloise Fiorentino. I hate to complain though because the value is still fantastic and I like all the items in the box. I decided to send them an email asking if something was missing from my box and letting them know my shampoo had leaked. It wasn't a big leak and only leaked onto the soap but I thought they should know anyway. The sent a response back saying "We apologize that your experience has not been flawless and we would love to make it up to you. We will be sending a gift your way! Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery" I'm very curious what they are going to send. 

I can't believe how expensive the foot cream is. It's not a very big jar and I would say I could get maybe 4 uses out of it, so $15 is kind of a lot. Same for the little square of soap. It will last longer but it's still pretty small for $15. I wish I received a different color Sothys lip color but maybe I can trade it. The little sachet of french lavender will be stashed in my closed to keep it smelling nice. The Tassia Canellis earrings are really cute but super tiny! 

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

Everyone Loves A Treasure
