Moi-Même is a quarterly luxury subscription box that delivers a dose of “me” time, straight to your door. The goal of the subscription is to encourage busy women like you to prioritize yourself and practice self-care: it’s a present from you to you. Each quarterly box contains a variety of at least 5 full-sized items, such as jewelry, cosmetics, housewares, chocolate, and stationery, from independent brands such as Kate Spade. Moi-Même is UK-based and promises to deliver at least £75 (~$97.90) in retail value with every box.

Moi-Même is a quarterly subscription, and there are no customization options or box variations that you can select when subscribing.
However, the gifts in the boxes are tailored to your preferences. Even better, Moi-Même has a flexible exchange policy, which allows you to choose a different option if you receive an item variation that isn’t your favorite. If you’d like to exchange an item, you will have to pay a mailing fee of £3.95 (~$5.16) for UK subscribers or £5.95 (~$7.77) for non-UK subscribers.
Also note that the gifts will include the occasional personalized item, so don’t subscribe if you plan to re-sell or re-gift all of the items!
Cost of Subscription
A Moi-Même subscription costs:
- £54.95 (~$71.73) per box for quarterly billing
- £49.99 (~$65.25) per box for an annual subscription
All subscriptions renew automatically for the same term as your original subscription. For example, a 3-month subscription will roll over into another 3-month subscription.
As you can see, you save £4.96/quarter (~$6.47) or £19.84/year (~$25.90) by committing to a full year of boxes. That is a decent discount, as far as subscription boxes go. So if you can afford it, make sure to sign up for a 12-month Moi-Même subscription!
International shipping (from the UK) costs £14.95 (~$19.51) per box for all countries, including Japan. This is on the steeper side for international shipping. However, the total cost of an annual subscription (billed annually) shipped to Tokyo is £259.75 (~$339.05), or £64.94 (~$84.77) per box. This price is still less than the promised retail value of £75+ (~$97.90), and the boxes are quite heavy. So this amount is acceptable, assuming the value guarantee is honored and you love what you receive in your boxes.
UK shipping is FREE. Lucky ducks!

Damaged Items & Refund Policy
Moi-Même’s damage resolution policy falls short of an iron-clad guarantee. They “we will do [their] best to replace” faulty items, “subject to availability.”
Fortunately, I haven’t yet had to avail myself of the process. So we don’t yet know if Moi-Même delivers more than they promise to. But let us know in the comments if you have an experience to share!
Boxes ship in January, April, July, and October each year. Moi-Même international packages are shipped out of the United Kingdom. Tracking is not available, so we cannot provide information on delivery times.
International shipping rating: 2/5. Pricey shipping to Japan. Tracking not available. Wishy-washy damage resolution process.
Moi-Même’s packaging is top-notch. Your gifts ships in a gorgeous, luxe box with the pink Moi-Même brand seal on top.

When subscribing to Moi-Même, you will fill out a survey about your favorite colors, skin type and color, hair type and color, clothing size, shoe size, and preferred jewelry color. They even ask you, free-form, to let them know what you love and would like to see in your boxes. Cool! You will also provide your preferences for the appearance of your name on personalized items.
Additionally, Moi-Même has a very clean and user-friendly website that is transparent about your subscription details. For example, you can log into your customer dashboard at any time to review your billing information, address, and renewal date. You can even change your shipping address, payment information, and questionnaire responses without contacting customer service.
Customer Experience Rating: 5/5. User-friendly. Can edit current subscription online. Great UI.
Moi-Même does not ask about allergies during the subscription sign-up process, nor does the website contain information on requesting allergy accommodations. So we don’t know if they will accommodate allergies.
