It’s the time of the month again! Today I review for you the Fortune Cookie Soap fall box. The theme this season is the Princess Bride. I’ve never seen the movie completely through but I’m familiar with the characters and the jokes. Let’s get into the review!
The Soap Box comes with eight products, some full-sized and some are miniature versions. The Soap Box comes out quarterly before each season and costs $19.95 USD, which includes shipping. Each box also includes a $10 store credit that can be used towards a full-sized product from the collection or at any other time. I love that they do that! Most of the products are around $10-$12, so the coupon is helpful.
What I like about the Soap Box is that it lets you test out all of the scents before the full collection comes out. It also allows you to try out products you normally wouldn’t think to buy.
I’ll put the name of the product in bold followed by the description FCS gives on the card that is included.
First is my favorite product: the fortune cookie soap!
DROP. YOUR. SWORD. Fortune Cookie Soap: TO THE PAIN! Well, maybe not the pain… but at least you can rejuvenate your senses and challenge your adversaries with this aromatic blend of medieval honey apple mead.
This smells amazing. Smells exactly like apple cider. So delicious! I love the glitter on the soap, but I’m not excited for how messy that’s going to get on my bathroom counter.
Prepare to Die OCD Hand Sanitizer: Hello little germies, my name is hand sanitizer… prepare to die! A Warm blend of fresh baked cookie dough spiced with clove and saffron, that’ll clean all the five or six of your fingers!
This smells like straight up cookie dough that has just a hint of apple spice. So yummy!
Mostly Dead Whipped Cream Body Butter: Feeling dead to the world? Don’t worry, Miracle Mac has seen worse, and it just so happens that you’re feeling only mostly dead. Gold honey drizzled over toasted almonds and pumpkin puree, warmed with amber, is just the aromatic miracle you’re looking for. Think it will work? It will take a miracle!
This smells like pumpkin puree but not as zesty. This smells like something from the fall box two years ago. That’s not a bad thing; I love this scent!
Inconceivable! Perfume Oil: What could be more inconceivable than fall woods, black amber and poached pears topped with whipped vanilla cream?
This smells like a pear Jelly Belly mixed with a bit of a smokey, musk (must be the amber.) I think the amber saves this perfume from being too sweet. I’m getting kind of tired of the inconsistencies in the perfume oil size. Some boxes we get this HUGE vile that can’t possibly be used up before the season is over, some boxes we get this tiny little dram. I prefer the tiny dram so I’m hoping FCS sticks to this size.
Mawiage Scented Cotton Ball: Mawiage is wot bwings us togeva today – a perfect mawuage of rich pound cake, scented with cardamom, pistachio, and rose water topped with creamy buttercream… that is.
This is the most hilarious product to me. What do I do with a scented cotton ball? There is so instruction on what to do with this and I am left so confused. My sister and I thought you put it in your drawer to make your clothes smell fresh, but even then one cotton ball doesn’t do much. But if we must talk about the scent, it’s subtle and sweet.
Pit of Despair Steam Me Up Scotty!: You won’t want to be rescued from this enticing blend of patchouli, fresh-cut lemongrass and tropical plumeria.
Steam Me Up Scotty! is one of my favorite favorite products from FCS. You pop these into your shower to release a scent into the steam of your shower. I like these when my head is a little fuzzy and I need to clear it up. I’m not a fan of patchouli at all, but this mostly smells like lemongrass. This will be nice and energizing in the morning!
Buttercup Shampoo: From common to queen… or at lead princess status… your hair will gleam like a crown after just one use! Candied rum wrapped with ripe fig, bergamont, vetiver, warm sandalwood and sweet vanilla musk.
A liquid shampoo is a new product from FCS! I’m excited to use this. This smells like the Halloween soda from the dessert place near me: apple, caramel and spice. I kind of want to eat it?
True Love Facial Cleansing Oil: This is truelove! You think this happens every day? A sparkling blend of fresh citrus, creamy jasmine petals and a dash of sea salt.
Another new product from the company. The petals in the vile look so beautiful floating around, but I’m not sure how functional the bottle will be with the petals possibly clogging up the opening. This smells fresh. I like that the scent is subtle. I don’t want added fragrance on my face!
Knight Cream Facial Moisturizer: This unscented moisturizer will stand watch all night and protect your skin.
This is a basic moisturizer (and a new product!) that should be used at night. This cream is truly unscented and is nice and thick.
This box gets a huge thumbs up from me. There are some boxes where most products are a dud, but I love every single product and scent in this box. The cotton ball still perplexes me, but I’m not upset at it like the lip gloss from the summer box. My favorite scents are Inconceivable!, Buttercup and Drop. Your. Sword. These scents remind me of fall and it’s getting me excited for apple cider, pumpkin spice and comfy sweaters!
The collection goes on sale Friday, August 26 at 6 p.m. CST. FCS usually hosts a Ustream where they give away full-sized products from the collection and share a 20% off coupon for those who are ordering a lot or don’t get the box.
