OuiPlease comes every other month and costs $150 month-to-month or $650/year. Each box includes ‘a unique selection of full sized French products’ worth over $400. 
 
I wrote to ask for details and received a prompt, if somewhat canned, response:
 

We actually have full sized products featured in each box, including the very best France has to offer in all categories: beauty, jewelry, accessories, apparel, home and epicure. There is a retail value of at least $400 per box.
 
No two alike, each special delivery will feature a unique selection of full-sized French gifts. Each parcel will include at least one selection from each category: apparel, beauty, jewelry, accessories, home and epicure, at a retail value of at least double the membership price. Members can expect an average of 11 items in each box.
 
For jewelry, We are partnering with several French Designers - jewelry products will include bracelets, necklaces, earrings (for pierced and not pierced ears). It's always a surprise!

 

I had asked about the size for apparel items and that question got skipped, so I asked again about sizes, and if they'd get information from subscribers. I also asked about their return policy.

 

This will be added to your user profile page.

Next week, you will receive an email to update your profile from Oui Please.

 

I'm really glad they'll have profiles, but this time they skipped my question about returns. Still, I'm glad to get an answer on a Saturday. 

 
They are related to this business in Dallas:

Kind of a funny video, because the blonde ‘customer’ sounds suspiciously French. 
 
I believe they’re related to this too:

Looks interesting and I will probably try the 1st month's box (especially if I can return my Nina Garcia box).

I'm soooo tempted by this box but I think I'll have to talk my husband into buying this for me as a Christmas present. 

 

I also saw that even though they initially advertised on their site that boxes could be returned that they will not accept returns.

Thanks for all your research.  I watched the video and I'm kinda stumped as to what service they're offering . . . are they personal stylists?  Or a store? Hmm. . . interesting concept anyway. 

 

I will probably regret not ordering this, but $150 is a lot to gamble. Just because an item has a certain retail value, doesn't mean it's something that's to my taste or that I'll use. So, I'll have to wait a few boxes in to decide if it's going to be a good fit. 

 

  It also seems like they conflict themselves a little, with their statements about value.  They say the box has a retail value of $400, then below it says the box will have a retail  value at least double of the cost (so, $300).  I also would be reluctant to purchase a year in advance, since the subscription box business is a tough nut to crack and many have folded after just a few months.  

 

That being said, I wish them all the luck and think it's a great concept for a box.

looks interesting. $150 is too much to gamble for me, but I'll be stalking this thread to see what others are getting.

I was able to cancel shipment on my Nina Garcia box & it took me very little time to decide to use the funds for this instead. I figure worst case, if the items aren't for me they will at least make very unique & lovely gifts. I couldn't even use most of the Nina items as gifts. I'm so excited for this box! Not sure if I really want to get it long term, but at east the 1st box sounds amazing!

Thanks for the additional spoilers, Saffyra.  I'm so intrigued by this box and tried to look up some of the brands listed in your spoiler.  I think a few of them are truly so French that it's hard to find anything about them in English, such as Charlotte Sometime.    

 

I was thinking the big fashion item might be from Christian Lacroix, but I saw on their website that it's Christian Lacroix Papers. . .I remember getting a kinda garish notebook in a Popsugar LE box a year or so ago.   Either way, I'm sure I will totally regret not subscribing to this box.  It will make me happy if everyone loves their box! :)

Tempting, but not at $150, sadly.  Plus I don't really want apparel or food items.  But I'm open for ideas of other French cosmetics/skin care boxes -- any thoughts?  Thanks.

Unfortunately, my funds were less than I had originally thought they'd be, so I won't be able to get their initial box. I'm really hoping MSA does so we can get a good idea of what is sent. I'm a total Francophile and I hope this is a good one.

 

I can't really think of any other France specific subscription boxes besides this and French Box. It's a bummer, since France has some amazing skin/beauty brands that aren't as well known here. Somebody should hop on that!

It does look like there are at least 11 full-sized items, but 5 are from Sothys! (And that’s counting the boxed items as one set.)

 

Another item is a $28 Christian Lacoirx Glam’azonia 2015 slim diary.

 

The box for Atelier Cologne looks like the right size for a rollerball, as was mentioned before.

 

 

I’m underwhelmed and probably won’t sign up, but the presentation is beautiful and I do think it would be a fun box to receive.

Lovely box, but nothing that would make me want to spend $150. I think my ideal French box at that price point would need to have a beautiful scarf, a good sized candle, a killer high end lipstick and perfume from a venerable house. Maybe a bud vase or a similar type of houseware item.

 

 

And at $150, I think variations are a BAD idea.

Hmmm. I bought this box because I thought it was going to be a nice mix of "apparel, beauty, jewelry, accessories, home and epicure". It looks fairly beauty heavy to me. I hope I like mine better in person. With s $400 value I'm hoping for some spectacular gifts & at least a few things I'll keep for myself.

I bought annual subscription. So much money, I hope I will not regret. When I look how great December Pop Sugar box is for only $25 with 6 months Black Friday subscription I don't know if Ouiplease is worth that much money...

The really great thing is that they will honor the 20% discount for those that ordered early as long as you let them know - from the MSA site:

 

We will gladly honor any request for the 20% discount for purchases made before the code was released. The code was a last minute request from our media partners that we honored. And will gladly honor for you as well. Please email [email protected] for this request before Dec. 10th. We will get back you as promptly as possible

The preview boxes I've seen thus far look really nice. However, there's too many beauty items for me. I was hoping they'd stick to having an equal amount of home, fashion, beauty, and food.

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
