OuiPlease Vol. 2.6 Spring Box Review of two different boxes

The OuiPlease is a box full of Parisian treasures that ships 6 times a year. The price of the box is quite high at $150 per shipment. You can also subscribe yearly for $650 bringing the price of the box down to $108. 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 and have a value of at least $300. 

Every now and then they have a 20%-30% off code that can be used on yearly subscriptions and brings the price down to $520 or $455. I was lucky enough to find one for 30% off so this box was only $75. The bad part is it's an overlap box with my previous subscription. 

This month I received two boxes. I renewed my subscription thinking it had ended but I guess I still had one more shipment left. The good news is I received two different boxes. 

Price: $108-$150 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.


OuiPlease Box #1

Contents of the Volume 2.6 OuiPlease Box #1:

Camille Enrico Loreto Gold Necklace. Value = $200.00

Les interchangeables pinky beige flower bracelet. Value = $60.00 or $39.00 (on the les interchangeables website)

la cocotte Paris pochette. Value = $45.00

Leonor Greyl Paris Shampoo Creme de Bamboo. Value = $55.00

Leonor Greyl Paris Mask A L'Orchidee. Value = $65.00

Sabe Masson La Reine Soleil. Value = $35.00

Sophie. M Sucres D'orge candies. Value = $15.00

The value of this box is $454.00-$475.00. I'm pretty excited to try this expensive fancy French shampoo. The necklace has a great value but it's not really my style. I absolutely love the pochette, it's thick and feels like coated canvas. The perfume is a solid and would be good for traveling. They keep putting the les interchangeable bracelets in these boxes. I like them but I always forget to wear them.


OuiPlease Box #2


Contents of the Volume 2.6 OuiPlease Box #1:

Les interchangeables black flower bracelet. Value = $60.00 or $39.00 (on the les interchangeables website)

la cocotte Paris pochette. Value = $45.00

Annee Paris cotton headband. Value = $45.00

Leonor Greyl Paris Shampoo Creme de Bamboo. Value = $55.00

Leonor Greyl Paris Mask A L'Orchidee. Value = $65.00

Sabe Masson Macadam Paz. Value = $35.00

Sophie. M Violettes candies. Value = $15.00


The value of this box is $299.00-$320.00. I received a different pochette, color les interchangeable bracelet and fragrance scent in this box. I was disappointed that there was no jewelry item but instead a headband that they value at $45.00. It's cute but no way in the world would a pay $45 for a thin piece of cotton.


Verdict: As you can see there is a considerable value difference in the two boxes. I don't think it's reasonable to send one person a $200 necklace and another a $45 piece of cotton. Also it seems there was suppose to be nail polish in the box that no one seemed to get. I have mixed feelings on this box. I like the higher end products but I wish they were more consistent with sending people equal values or at least close to it.
