OuiPlease Vol. 3.2 Fall Edition

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. 

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.

Contents of the Volume 3.1 OuiPlease Box:

The value of this box is $332.00. I've been contemplating canceling this box at the end of my year because I haven't been too excited with the items. This month was a whole different story. Besides the beret, which I can't pull off at all, I loved everything in the box. I think the earrings, while not real opal are really pretty. I love, love, love the les cocotte pouches. I think the prints are super cute and they are great for traveling. I've burned a few of the PopUp candles and still haven't found a diamond but at least I got a nice candle out of it. The booklet included a recipe for tiramisu using the lady fingers in the box. They had better be delicious for $30 a box! 

Verdict: I'm not sure how many months left I have on my subscription but I'm leaning towards not renewing. The last 2 boxes have left me unexcited.
