OuiPlease Vol 1.4 Escape to the French Riviera

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 plunges.

This month there was a packing slip in the box. This is new. 

This box has lots of treasures in it. This is the first pic. 

Here are the food treasures.

Life is Beautiful t-shirt. 

Earrings, Clutch and Headband

Cute Earrings.

Contents of the Volume 1.4 OuiPlease Box:

Objets Obscurs Xingdu Turquoise and Gold Earrings. Value = $28.00/$14.00 on sale

The value of this second box is $393.00. I question the price of the nougat bar though. $20 seems awfully high and I've bought bars like this before for a lot less. I also think the coasters are overprices at $20. They are very thin and I'm guessing won't last long. The Grain de Pastel body butter is really cool. My leaked a bit but it reminds me of whipped yogurt. I wonder if all of them are like that or just mine from sitting in a hot mailbox in 108 degree weather. The orange mist is nice and light, just enough for a little scent. I think the t-shirt is really cute, especially with the little french accent to it, but unfortunately it's not going to fit me. It says XL but I think it's a small XL. The earrings are fun and I checked out their website and they have lots of fun jewels and everything is 50% off right now! The headband is cute and I will use it but $30 is a little ridiculous. The clutch isn't really fancy or anything but it's well made and I will most likely use it for traveling.  

Verdict: It's a lot of money but it definitely has value. 

Everyone Loves A Treasure
