Fortune Cookie Soap Fall 2016 Soap Box!


HELLO! I know, it's not nail polish. But just as exciting! 

I have been OBSESSED (putting it mildly) with the Fortune Cookie Soap company for going on 4 years now. I first discovered them through my BFF, she subscribed to their quarterly soap box and would give me the products she didn't care for. I soon became addicted. Since then, I have been fortunate (shameless pun lol) enough to become friends with the owners, Shannon and Justin, as well as most of the staff. In May I was REALLY FORTUNATE and actually got to attend their Summer Launch Party in person! It was so much fun! I got to be employee for the day, and help with prepping, etc. It was such an awesome experience I will never forget! 

Today I received their Fall 2016 Soap Box in the mail and I MUST SHOW YOU!! I am so very excite!! LET'S TAKE A LOOK!!!!!
   
The FCS Soap Box is quarterly, and comes with 8 products/scents, some of which are full sized. The items in the box are basically sneak peeks of some of the products that will be available once the full collection comes out. Each item is a different scent, and each scent will have a variety of products to purchase. The collection changes quarterly, and will be available for a few months until the next one comes out. The soap box subscription is $19.99 every 3 months ($24.99 for Canada and $29.99 for everywhere else). Each box comes with a $10 coupon code (which they email to you) to spend on a future purchase. It's an amazing deal!

Each Soap Box/quarterly collection has its own theme. They are usually inspired by cult classics: popular movies, books, tv shows etc. When you first open the box, you will find a colorful card that reveals the theme! The Fall 2016 Soap Box/Collection is inspired by the movie The Princess Bride and is called "As You Wish".

Inside of the card lists the box's contents, names of scents, products and what they do.

Now let's take a closer look at each item! First up is their famous Whipped Cream, or body butter in a scent called "Mostly Dead". I LOVE FCS whipped cream! I use it every day after my shower. It keeps my skin so soft and makes it smell divine. FCS describes Mostly Dead as, "golden honey drizzled over toasted almonds and pumpkin puree, warmed with amber." It's definitely a "foodie" type of scent, I smell mostly pumpkin and it reminds me of pie crust. Pumpkin lovers, this scent is a must!

Next we have their OCD Hand Sanitizer in "Prepare to Die". Yes, the name *OCD* is intentional; FCS is known for witty, tongue-in-cheek names (click HERE for more information). Part of the proceeds of each OCD goes to the International OCD Foundation. Prepare to Die is described as, "warm blend of fresh baked cookie dough spiced with clove and saffron". To me, this is a manly type of scent with a touch of bakery. This product does contain glitter/shimmer, as shown in second photo.

Liquid Shampoo is a relatively new product to FCS (they also offer a liquid conditioner). I really enjoy both. I alternate between those and their solid shampoo/conditioner bars. "Buttercup" is this scent's name and it's described as, "candied rum wrapped with ripe fig, bergamot, vetiver, warm sandalwood and sweet vanilla musk." I definitely smell the fig and sandalwood, this is another masculine scent in my opinion.

Ooooh a brand new product!! Facial Cleansing Oil in the fragrance "True Love". FCS is always keeping things new and exciting, they are constantly expanding their product line. True Love is described as, "fresh citrus, creamy jasmine petals and a dash of sea salt." I really like this fragrance, it is a floral type of scent. The oil has cornflower petals, so pretty! I cannot wait to try it.

LOL, our next item is a cotton ball! No, cotton balls will not be for sale on the FCS website. This was FCS' way of allowing us to sample the "Mawiage" scent since the facial cream comes unscented. Mawiage is described as, "rich pound cake, scented with cardamom, pistachio and rosewater topped with creamy buttercream." You would think with that description it would be a bakery/foodie type of scent, but to me it's more of an earthy/spicy/floral.

YAY! The return of the shower steamer (FCS did not offer shower steamers in the summer collection). Steam Me Up Scotty is a heavily scented fizzy tab that you place on the floor of your bathtub/shower. The heat/moisture/steam of your shower slowly dissolves the steamer releasing the fragrance. Not to be confused with a bath bomb, they are not recommended for use IN bath water. "Pit of Despair" is a blend of patchouli, fresh cut lemongrass and tropical plumeria. It is a clean type of scent in my opinion.

Another new product! "Knight Cream" Facial Moisturizer. This product is meant to be unscented, perfect for sensitive skin.

Their claim to fame, the Fortune Cookie Soap! "DROP. YOUR. SWORD." is an aromatic blend of medieval honey apple mead. It comes with a plastic sword, be sure to pull that out before use lol! Inside of the cookie is an actual fortune! I definitely smell apples, yum!

Last but not least is a small vial of perfume oil in "Inconceivable!" It's described as, "Fall woods, black amber and poached pears topped with whipped vanilla cream." This might be my favorite scent from the box, it's a sweet, foodie/bakery type scent.

Overall, these scents are perfect for Fall. Which at the moment is something I am definitely looking forward to. It's been so hot lately here in Pennsylvania. We have had several days of "heat wave" weather. I really like all of the scents, my favorites are Mostly Dead, True Love, Prepare to Die and Inconceivable.

Click HERE to subscribe to the Soap Box. The Fall box is currently sold out (sad face), but you can save yourself a place in line if spots open up. For those of you already subscribed, the Fall boxes should start shipping next week! The winter box should be available to sign up for soon, with an approximate ship date of early November.

These items (AND LOTS MORE, seriously) will be available after the Fall Launch Party, which starts at 6pm CST August 26th, 2016. The website is fortunecookiesoap.com. The site goes down the day of the party, and will go live immediately after the party. The launch party typically lasts for an hour or so and is held on their Facebook page. It's a lot of fun, they ask trivia questions and you can win prizes! FCS also provides a discount code to use that evening, good until midnight CST, but you must watch the party for the code!

November 2015 Sally's Coupon!


Happy November! 

So sorry for the delay, it was difficult obtaining this months coupon. Also, it looks a little different than the ones we are used to seeing. The code at the bottom looks like a one time use to me, so I had someone try it out and they said it worked. Hopefully you won't have any problems using it too! 




Here is an additional coupon for $5 you can use now through the 25th...
