Fortune Cookie Soap “It’s Easter, For Peeps Sake” Collection


I am such a scent junkie and can’t pass up a collection from Fortune Cookie Soap so here is the Easter collection which is called “It’s Easter, For Peeps Sake”. I love spring scents and sweet scents so I figured that this collection would really be something I would like.

Everyone who purchased the whole collection option within the first 24 hours received their products packaged up in this adorable Easter basket type thing which I thought was a really nice touch.

Let’s see all the products from this collection!


“Bunny Balls” Cake Pop Bath Bomb

because cupcake bath bombs are so 2014…! :p Buttery rum, yummy coconut, sweet butter cream, caramelized brown sugar, rum liquor with rich maple, creamy vanilla and rich tonka bean.

The packaging on this bath bomb is just so cute. Not that it matters once it goes into the tub, but FCS really puts in the work for the little things. In terms of the smell, it is delicious! Definitely a bakery kind of smell and I can’t pinpoint one smell in particular because there are so many great ones in there. I definitely think that buttery is an accurate word to use for this one though. I look forward to using this in the tub!


“Easter Town” Mist Me

An ooey gooey treat of pink sugar with a smear of black licorice.

As far as I know, Easter Town was a scent used in the Nightmare Before Christmas line a little more than a year ago. I didn’t know about FCS at the time but I am pretty sure it was one of four possible whipped cream scents you could have received in the Soap Box. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one because black licorice isn’t my favourite and I was worried it might overpower the pink sugar.

I shouldn’t have worried about that. I don’t smell the black licorice too prominently, it just helps to off set the sweetness a bit. This scent is light but I really enjoy it!


“Bunny Vomit” Perfume Oil

What happens when the Easter Bunny eats too much candy? A colourful rainbow of liquid fragrance…Zesty orange peels and sweet berries topped with a dollop of fluffy whipped cream.

I LOVE the scent of this perfume oil. I am always drawn to super fruity scents and this one does not disappoint. I definitely smell the citrus in this one which I really like because it makes it fresh and light. I will be wearing this one a lot for sure!


“¬°Grassyass!” Fortune Cookie Soap

Oh! No need to thank us! ūüėČ Remember hunting for Easter Eggs and candy, in the grass, as a kid! One sniff of this adorable little fortune cookie with it’s unique blend of fresh cut grass & fruity Easter candy will take you right back.

This soap is just so cute. A couple of my little eggs fell off in transit and I just rested them on the top for that picture so you would know what it is supposed to look like. I am okay with that though, not a big deal at all. This soap definitely has that fresh greenery kind of scent from the grass and I love that! I have been really into those garden green kinds of scents lately so I am happy to have this one!


“Egg Hunt” Bath Melts

A vintage FCS scent making a return for Easter!! AKA Capitol Diamond (same blend – updated scent description). Cotton candy, and sticky bubble gum, mixed with lemon drops, fresh apples & pears dripping with caramel and raspberry sauce.

Capitol Diamond was always a scent on my possible CYO list for FCS so I am really excited to be able to try it! This is another really fruity sounding one so I think that is why I was drawn to it. I absolutely love this scent as well. I have been a bit on the fence with their bath melts in general because they leave quite a mess in the tub but this scent is wonderful. I really look forward to seeing how that scent is when it’s in the tub.


“Belly Jeans” Talkin’ Smack Lip Scrub

Making a comeback – with a twist! If you’ve never used a lip scrub before – you might be wondering what all the fuss is about!! Our Jelly Bean flavoured lip scrub is handmade with exfoliating, pure cane sugar and moisturizing oils – so sweet and super yummy!

This lip scrub is so cute. The colour is adorable and you can’t really tell from this picture but there are coloured sprinkles throughout the scrub. The scent of this is a nice sugary one and their lip scrubs all taste great so I’m sure this will be the same!


“Krispy Cream” Whipped Cream

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! We don’t know what Rice Crispy Treats have to do with Easter, and we don’t care. We just knew one thing — we had to figure out a way to use this fragrance, and ASAP. What better product for it’s debut than our Whipped Cream? Two of our favourite things collide.¬†

There were some complaints in the FCS fan group about this scent smelling really plastic-like and artificial so I was a bit worried to receive mine because I had been so excited about the scent. However, I really like this one! It reminds me a little of Recently Deceased which is one of my favourite whipped creams from them and I think this consistency is extra creamy. The colour of this one is really nice as well.


“To Dye For” Bath Bomb

Ahhhh finally! The iconic Easter Egg — in the form of a bath bomb!! For those of you that loved Body Shot…here ya go! A mouthwatering blend of muddled raspberries with fresh lemon, sugar and vanilla. Comes packaged and ready to pop in the Easter Basket, with a clear takeout box, Easter grass and a cute ribbon.

Body Shot is another scent I had been wanting to smell so I got really lucky with this collection! I love the scent of this. Lemon and raspberry are two of my favourite fruity scents so this one was a definite winner for me! Once again the packaging of this is adorable and if I was less selfish, it would make a cute gift. However, I am totally selfish so this one is all mine.


“Bunny Hop” Bar Soap

Some bunny MADE THE CUTEST SOAP EVER! Srsly. Rich chocolate oozing with gooey marshmallow. 

I was so excited to receive this one because the design is just beautiful. It looks so realistic and I absolutely love that! Not only that, but the scent description sounded awesome. This just smells like straight up chocolate and I am not mad about it. It may be a little tricky to use as a bar soap just because of it’s shape but for now, I just like to smell it occasionally in the packaging.


“24 Carrot Cupcake” Bath Bomb

Rich carrot cake smushed into thick, sweet, cream cheese frosting.

I’m not a carrot cake person when it comes to my dessert preferences but I sure don’t mind the smell of it. In this one, i can smell the spices that would go into a carrot cake which I quite enjoy. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but there is a cute little Easter egg “garnish” for the cupcake which I just think is adorable. These cupcake bath bombs from FCS have the decorative meringue frosting (this one has lots of glitter on it). Since it is like a real meringue, it isn’t meant to be in the bath so if you throw it in, it may not melt all the way down. I just throw mine away and use the actual cupcake bath bomb portion (just to avoid a mess).


“Peep Show” Massage Bar

Peeps. Scented. Massage. Bar. I’ll give you a minute and let that sink in. Ba-dum tisss! Get your skin Peep Show ready with this yummy massage bar, handmade with a luxurious blend of kokum, shea, and mango butters.

I still have a massage bar from the Valentine’s Day collection that I haven’t used yet because I just don’t think to use them as a solid lotion bar. I really need to make an effort to try them out. This massage bar comes in a pair because they are smaller than the massage bars they’ve had in the past. These just have a nice, sweet scent that I really enjoy so that’s awesome!


“Bunny Burps” OCD Hand Sanitizer

Rich carrot cake smushed into thick, sweet, cream cheese frosting with a splash of vanilla.

Last but not least we have the hand sanitizer. Now, I would like to preface this by saying that it has a ton of glitter in it. Usually, the glitter in their hand sanitizers doesn’t really show up on your hands but this stuff does so if you are really opposed to glitter, you may not like this one. This has the same basic scent as the carrot cake bath bomb but with the addition of some extra vanilla it seems. I really like this scent too and I find it pretty mild.

Gosh, I have to say, I just love this collection. I think that the names, the design, the packaging, the scents, everything exceeded my expectations. FCS knocked this one out of the park! There isn’t a thing from this collection that I don’t like the scent and that I won’t use. If these are the types of scents that you enjoy, I would definitely suggest picking some of these products up because I just love them.

Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2015 Unboxing

When Fortune Cookie Soap revealed that the spring 2015 box was going to be Alice in Wonderland themed, I could not contain my excitement. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland and the fact that it is based more on the Tim Burton version made me even more excited. I also have been into garden greens types of scents lately for some reason so I was excited that these were going to be spring scents.

For those of you who don’t know, Fortune Cookie Soap is an indie bath and body company based out of Oklahoma. They have one retail store but most of their business takes place online. You can order products from their website but they also have this quarterly subscription service called The Soap Box.

Every 3 months, the company comes out with a new seasonal line and about 2-3 weeks before the launch of this line, they send out the soap boxes. In each box you will find one product for each scent of this new line. When they do launch these lines you can get each scent in multiple different products but this box gives you a chance to see what each scent actually smells like. The box is $20 quarterly for US residents, $28 quarterly for Canadians, and $34 quarterly for those of you living internationally.


This box was packaged so perfectly! The little confetti worms were a perfect spring grass kind of green and they put in a beautiful little butterfly. It just looks like a nice spring-like scene and it made me so happy. This is my third Soap Box from Fortune Cookie Soap and I think that it may be my favourite one yet. I’m sure I will say that every time though.


Fortune Cookie Soap always includes really beautifully printed cards to tell you what the scent descriptions are for each product. One thing that I really enjoy about their cards is that they include pictures of each product so you aren’t trying to figure out what anything is.


Let’s see what was included in this box!


“Almost Alice” Fortune Cookie Soap (I’d rather be almost alice than completely Bob — or Stan for that matter!)

Fresh green snap peas and juicy pears brighten this bouquet of sweet pea flowers, and freesia, sprinkled with ripe berries.

I am obsessed with this scent! Like I said before, I am super into garden greens scents lately and I think that this is just perfect. FCS already had their spring launch party and I purchased several things in this particular scent because I love it so much. I also think that the colour of this is just so beautiful. Both the scent and look of this soap make me wish all the snow would melt away and that the sundresses could start making their appearance again. One of these days!


“Twisted Tea Party” Bath Tea (That sounds like my kind of party, as long as you’re serving Long Islands!)

A light, refreshing, green tea with notes of sweet herbs, vanilla bean, cucumber, golden amber, and hints of neroli and geranium, stirred with a bright sprig of spearmint. Directions: Place tea bag directly in a warm bath.

I quite enjoy the scent of this product. It is definitely strongly tea scented but I could also smell the fresher scents such as the cucumber and spearmint. I did use this product already and it is quite interesting. It didn’t provide too much scent to my bath and it was kind of weird to have a tea bag floating around the tub. However, the way that they sell the full size product is a little different though. They sell a jar of the actual product and it comes with a reusable muslin bag to fill it with. I didn’t order any of the full size product but it would be interesting to see if using more product would make a difference.


“Who Are You?” Incense Cone (…what exactly are you smoking, vapor?)

A mysterious mixture of crisp, ripe, pear twisted with tart limes, vanilla orchid, and dash of raw cane sugar. Directions: Place cone on a non-flammable surface, light tip and let burn for 10 seconds, then extinguish. OR keep cones in muslin bag and use as a sachet. There are hundreds of way to use a sachet – GTS! ūüôā

I think it was so neat that they introduced incense cones as a new product with a scent based on the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. Maybe I’m the only one who is so happy about these kinds of things. I love the scent of this one but I think I enjoy the scent more when the cones aren’t burning than when they are. I have only burned one of the cones so far though so I will try another one and see what i think. I did purchase different products in this scent though because I do really enjoy it!

IMG_20150217_152147“It’s Only a Dream” Whipped Cream (Welcome to Wonderland, where playing cards come to life and everything is full of nonsense)

Calming verbena, lemongrass, calla lily, and citrus blended with leafy greens, ylang-ylang, rosewood, and ozone; with hints of soft musk and roses.

The past two boxes have had randomized whipped creams where you could have gotten one of four scents. This is the first box I’ve received that has had the same whipped cream scent going out to everyone. I like that this whipped cream is a nice light pink colour. I’m not sure why I like this so much but I feel like there would be fluffy pink clouds in parts of Wonderland. Maybe this makes me crazy…I’ve come to terms with that though! For me, I find this scent is mostly floral with just a hint of citrus but I do really enjoy it! Like I’ve said in past posts, I don’t think I’ve found a whipped cream from FCS that I haven’t enjoyed.


“Off With Their Heads!” Bath Bomb (“I just love my morning coffee and executions, don’t you?”)

Groves of Meyer lemons and succulent oranges mingle with a perfectly manicured garden of wild roses, violets, and star jasmine perfumed with romantic tones of bergamot and Egyptian musk.

Now, I am definitely not the best at picking out scents but for this one, I really only smell floral notes. I didn’t get any citrus from this one which does make me a little sad because I absolutely love citrus. That being said. I did enjoy the scent of this one, and it really just looks gorgeous. I used this one and it was nice having little rose petals floating around the tub. The only downfall is that the petals do stick to you, and the tub afterwards. You could easily use the muslin bag from the incense cones or something else like that to put the bath bomb in before putting it in the tub. That way, the petals would stay in the bag and you wouldn’t need to clean your tub out.


“Futterwacken” Body Wash (Not here! Everyone’s watching!)

Sun warmed lilies brightened with a splash of grapefruit and a breath of fresh air.

This body wash is the coolest neon orange colour, I absolutely love it! I have a hard time smelling this while it’s in the bottle for some reason so I will have to actually try it to know how I feel about the smell. My mom was able to smell florals and grapefruit without me reading the scent description to her so obviously those scents are there. I’ll try it out soon!


“Eat Me” Perfume Oil (I dare you… but not really, your tummy would hurt)

Scrumptious yellow cake with a fresh slathering of rich, creamy vanilla frosting, topped with fresh white pineapple slices and garnished with a sprig of blooming cilantro.

I’m pretty sure this is a full one dram size of this perfume which is actually a size that they sell, not just a sample size. However, when they sell the drams to you, you get a stopper to put in the bottle to control flow of the oil. They did not give this in the soap box and this may not be a big deal for some people but I kind of wish they had included one. This is only because I am a klutz and I end up spilling it all over myself.

As for the actual scent itself, I really enjoy it! This is one that I have enjoyed wearing and I did end up getting the scent in a bath bomb. I soooo wanted to buy the bar soap of this scent because it looked like a stunning piece of cake. It really is a work of art and clearly everyone else felt that way too because it sold out before I could place my order. That is okay though, not the worst thing in the world.


“We’re All Mad Here” OCD (…which truly explains a lot!)

Playful mint waters and natural leafy green notes perform a masterful balancing act with musky rich cedarwood.

This is another scent that I loved in this box! This is probably my second favourite after Almost Alice and I did purchase several other products in this scent because I enjoy it so much. I think this is because it’s one of those scents that includes the greens. Along with the scent, I always enjoy the hand sanitizers from FCS because they do not dry out your hands from using them. I have quite a stash of their OCD sanitizers and will probably never run out of hand sanitizer ad this rate.

I absolutely love this box and can’t wait for my launch order to arrive! If you are interested in any of these scents, keep an eye on the FCS website and Facebook pages for an announcement that they are restocking products. I do believe some of the products from this line are still available but people are always buying stuff so it’s hard to say for sure.

If you would like to check out the Soap Box you can follow this link: They are taking orders for the Summer 2015 box which will be shipping out sometime in May. If you do order, you will be charged every 3 months from the time you sign up.

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you get the Soap Box and what your favourite Spring 2015 scent was!

Fortune Cookie Soap ‘Winter Has Come’ Collection



I absolutely love Game of Thrones so I was over the moon excited to get this collection in the mail. Unfortunately, this particular order was not a problem free ordeal for me but I am happy with how things went.

When I received my package, the bottle of linen spray which is made of glass had broken and drenched everything. This meant that the labels had been ruined and covered everything with the dark coloured ink that had run. Also, everything that came in a bag was mostly dissolved. It was a pretty big mess and I was sad about it.

I emailed their customer service and heard back within a couple of hours. One thing that I can never praise enough is the customer service at FCS. They are absolutely amazing and they work so hard to make sure that everyone is happy! They sent out a replacement order and here it is!

Unfortunately, the linen spray bottle broke again. I know this isn’t their fault, but I am still a little sad because I really was looking forward to the spray. I think that the breaking is a combination of rough postal workers and this horribly cold weather. Cold weather and liquid filled glass bottles don’t mix well. Fortunately, they had packaged it in it’s own bag so it didn’t ruin things. My Mist Me spray did leak over some things but it just made the packaging sticky, nothing was wrecked.

Although I am sad not to have the linen spray, I am happy to have everything else so I am still happy with this order! Alright, after that whole preface, let’s see what we got!


“Hodor, Hodor, Hodor” Steam Me Up Scotty!

Hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor: Hodor. Hodor. Hodor Hodor. HODOR! Translation: This earthy blend of bright bergamot and fresh tomato has a quiet innocence just like the gentle giant himself.

I absolutely love the smell of these! Lately, I have been so into garden green kind of smells because they are so fresh. These make me feel like I have my face right up against a tomato plant and I love it. I tried one in the shower and didn’t find it put off any steam really so I will have to experiment to find the best way to use them.


“Iron Islands” OCD Hand Sanitizer

It’s a nice place to visit (we guess)…but we sure wouldn’t want to live there! Tender notes of water lily and apple blossom dance on top of fresh waters, ozone, and salty sea spray, rounded out by notes of sweet sun-weathered sandalwood with soft bergamot.¬†

This scent sounds an awful lot like the Hook scent that I have been wanting to try so badly! I think it is a lovely scent, like a day at the beach. Very fresh! I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture or not but this hand sanitizer is super glittery. Fortunately, only a tiny bit is actually noticeable once it’s on your hands. I was a little worried that I would just have glitter hands.






“Joffrey Dies at the End” Bath Truffle

I don’t always die, but when I finally do (after four excruciating seasons) millions of people cheer and celebrate.¬†A decadent buttery pastry filled with rich peppermint infused strawberries and¬†dolloped with a touch of freshly whipped cream.

Sorry, I had to space that out because I hate when there are spoiler alerts so I want to protect as many of you as I can if you aren’t all caught up! This is such a cute design for a product! I am really liking the scent of this! I would say that the strawberry is the scent that comes across most clearly for me with just a hint of peppermint. I am really interested to see how this one works. The white portion of it is like a bath fizzy and the purple middle part is like a bath melt. Very cool!






“Keep it in the Family” Perfume Oil

Cersei and Jaime…Still a better love story than that Vampire series…A fragrance as feminine, cultured, elegant, and powerful as the Queen Regent herself: a stunning bouquet of sensual burgundy roses, carnations, and white florals with nuances of burgundy wine, sandalwood, and a hint of musk.

I’m not sure how I feel about this one to be honest. I tend to prefer florals that are fresher and on the fruitier side. Scents such as Belle and Inner Goddess are ones that are more my kind of floral. I find this floral to be more musky and powdery which isn’t my particular favourite. I will definitely use it but I have other perfume oils that I prefer.


“Kingslayer” Bar Soap

A wealthy knight like Ser Jaime could have any woman he wants.. so why…??? A spicy blend of cinnamon and clove with warm bayberry, pine, sweet citrus and a touch of fresh green grass.

My first bar of this had no real pattern on it, it was just grey mush so I am so excited to have one with this beautiful design on it. In case it is hard to tell, the top has a crown on it and it is meant to look like it is splattered with blood. Very cool! I quite like the scent of this one although I’m having a hard time picking out a particular scent. I would say it is woodsy and spicy although I’m pretty bad at picking out scents so who knows.

“Moon Door” Linen Spray

Lysa Arryn calls it, “an elegant solution to the problem of administering juctice,” we call it, “a heck of a wild ride to Sleepy Town.” Refined lavender and heavenly hydrangea with hints of juicy pear.

This is the one that broke on me so I actually don’t have it. From the scent that was covering both of my packages, I would say that I would really love this one! I love spraying scents onto my pillow before I go to sleep and with lavender in this one, I think it would have been great! I’m sad but there are worse things that could happen so it’s okay.


“Mother of Dragons” Whipped Cream

When I grow up, I wanna be naked, fireproof, and covered in dragons, too! Creamy french vanilla soy milk, sweet florals, and a nutty almond base.

This whipped cream is a beautiful peachy orange colour that I just love! I am really enjoying the scent of this one. I know that a lot of people have said they smell mostly florals but for me I would say it’s an equal mix of florals with a sweet creamy scent. I really like this one! Although it’s not hard to please me, I haven’t found a whipped cream that I haven’t enjoyed yet.


“Needle” Sugar Scrub

First lesson: Stick them with the pointy end. Okay…but where??? Herbaceous cilantro, tart lemons, and lush green base notes of fresh grass and green tea leaves.

This is one of my favourites from this collection, if not the overall favourite. I LOVE this one. Like I said before, I am into garden green scents right now and this one is perfect! I wish I could have this scent in a whipped cream so I could just smell like it all the time. Not only does it smell amazing, but this formula is phenomenal. I had never tried a sugar scrub from FCS before and I am so glad that I have now! Other sugar scrubs I’ve used had been oily but this is almost like a mousse kind of consistency. I just love it!


“No Middle Ground” Hydrate Me

Win… or die. That’s a little harsh… can’t the loser just buy the brews? Sheesh! A distinctive blend of bergamot, intoxicating gardenia, fresh eucalyptus leaves and lavender flowers wrapped in neroli, and tea leaves.

This is a nice, fresh scent that is mostly herbal with a hint of citrus. There is an overspray of glitter on this which I don’t love for a hydrate me but I’m sure it can be wiped off!


“Red Woman” Fortune Cookie Soap

We’re not quite sure who fathered the scary smoke baby that spewed forth from her lady bits, but one thing’s for certain…whoever he is, he’s braver than we are! Sensual amber, sparkling citrus, and rich sandalwood blended with cool waters and hints of patchouli.

I like this scent way more than I thought I was going to! I thought it would be really dark but I find that the citrus comes out and brightens it all up. Also, the design of this soap is beautiful! The flames look so nice and really suits the theme/description of this one.


“Take the Black” Shampoo & Conditioner Combo Bar

A 2-in-one solution for our favourite crow’s luscious locks, scented with a blend of leather and amber as dead-sexy as Jon Snow himself.

I hadn’t tried any of the solid shampoo or conditioner bars before this one. This is the first time FCS has made a combo bar which is pretty interesting. I’m not sure how I feel about the actual product itself which I hate to say. I have tried it out for a bit and I’m not sure if works the best for my hair. However, I have read in the fan group that people have been using it for their pets so I may try this out on Tucker sometime. As for the scent, it is a masculine scent for sure but I was afraid I wouldn’t like it and I don’t mind it.


“The Hound” Wax Tart

“I understand that if any more words come pouring out your mouth, I’m gonna have to eat every chicken in this room.” Yeah, we’re gonna be quiet now… This exotic earthy fragrance combines top notes of tarragon, vanilla bean, and sandalwood with honey, caramel, amber and a beautiful woody musk with subtle hints of patchouli.

I haven’t melted this in my warmer yet, just smelled it in the container. I kind of like this one, I think it’s a nice wintery scent. To me this one is a woodsy caramel which I like. I will be interested to see what the throw of this scent is.


“The Imp” Mist Me?

“I am the god of tits and wine.” Yep…impin’ ain’t easy. A rich blend of fresh black cherries, white wine, mahogany and teak woods, and a spicy note of freshly grated black pepper.

I find the scent of this one fairly subtle but I like it! I love that they made the bottle look like a wine bottle, perfect for Tyrion! I think they have improved the actual nozzle too because this mist is nice and fine which I really like! I’m super happy with this one.


“Valyrian Steel” Body Wash

We heard of a man who had a razor made of this stuff… he cut off his head trying to shave! A blend of Italian bergamot, yuzu, fresh Meyer lemon and verbena perfectly blended with notes of olive leaf and sweet florals, finished with faint notes of patchouli, white musk, and cedarwood.

I was hoping this would be a nice citrusy scent but it is definitely filled with the deeper scents. I would say this is a pretty good unisex scent. I really enjoy the body washes from FCS so I look forward to using this!


“White Walker” Lip Scrub

So…who’s the super scary “Darth Maul meets Daiquiri Ice” dude? Mmmmm…tingly mint!

This is just a straight up minty lip scrub. Definitely nothing wrong with that, and nice for winter! I love the blue that they used for this scrub, it helps me pretend I’m in the Caribbean instead of super cold Ontario.


“You Know Nothing” Bath Powder

Apparently he knew more than we thought he did…twice! Warm bonfires at dusk, wind-blown leaves, charred pine and cedar accented with roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, and a hint of fresh earth.

I love this! The scent description for this one reminded me of a more nighttime version of Roy G. Biv which I loved! There is a sweet scent to this that must be the marshmallows and sugar but it is almost a tart sweet. I am aware that that doesn’t make any sense. I don’t find the scent comes across too much when it’s actually in the water, but maybe I didn’t use enough. I do love smelling this in the jar though!


“Unsullied” Shower Oil

The few thousand, the proud, the Unsullied. A warm arid blend of patchouli, sandalwood, and citrus with juicy notes of white peach and red mango.

I didn’t even know that shower oils were a thing but the concept really appeals to me. I haven’t tried this out yet but I’m interested to see if dries quickly or if you just feel oily for a little while. Smelling it in the bottle, I don’t smell any fruit at all. It is really just the patchouli and sandalwood which is a bummer. I was hoping it would pretty much only smell like peach and mango. However, you never know what it will smell like on your skin so we will see once I try this if it changes at all!


“What Happens Behind the Wall, Stays Behind the Wall” Solid Bubble Bath

As soon as one man builds a wall, another immediately wants to know what’s behind it. Or pee on it. Men do that, right? An icy mix of spearmint, menthol, woodland moss, and lemon zest with notes of lime, lavender, and fresh water.

This bubble bar is absolutely huge! They did a good job decorating these, you can even see the little pee spot on the end. I think that I get mostly mint and citrus when I smell this one which is nice! I think this scent would be nice if you are feeling a little congested with a cold. There is glitter all throughout this one it looks like so my bath may need a little wipe down afterwards!


“Oathkeeper” Bath Fizzy

This was a bonus product that you could only get if you ordered the full collection within the first 12 hours of sale. We never did receive a scent description of this one but we were told that it is a fresh and clean scent. This is definitely true, it is nice and fresh and I absolutely love it. I am so terrible at picking out scents but I would say it reminds me of a sweet pea kind of scent but I am probably way off.


I also got a couple of bonus products with this order which is always very exciting! The first product I got is the Roy G. Biv Fortune Cookie Soap. I remember seeing this one when it was released because it is so beautiful! The other product I got was the Hair Flip OCD Hand Sanitizer which is a great scent as well. Very exciting!

I am so happy with my order. I think that this is a great collection and they did such a great job with the theme. It is too bad about the shipping issues but things like that happen so it’s alright.

Fortune Cookie Soap ’50 Shades of Soap’ Mini Collection

50 Shades of Soap Collection

Eek I was so excited to get this package in the mail! This is Fortune Cookie Soaps Valentines Day collection that is based on 50 Shades of Grey. Now, I never read 50 Shades, I don’t plan on it either. It just isn’t my kind of book, I prefer more of the Stephen King type of genre which obviously differs. However, I do love FCS and the scents in this collection sounded nice so I wanted it anyways. There were a lot of florals with some fruits mixed in which I like so very exciting!

Bitten Lip Scrub

“Bitten” Lip Scrub

“I’d like to bite that lip.” Yea , Christian…we’d like that, too! Spicy warm cinnamon and cool mint…delish!

I love the colour of this lip scrub! It’s so pretty. I tried this one out and it tastes really yummy (even though it’s not just meant to be eaten). It tastes like cinnamon without any of the spiciness. It does discolour the skin around your lips to a pinkish colour so if you get this, wipe or lick it off relatively quickly. These lip scrubs last me forever and soon I will have a third one in my collection so I’m set for awhile!

Hard Limit Massage Bar

“Hard Limit” Massage Bar

What makes you scream, “RED!”? Juicy red apples and lime accentuate the femininity of a fresh-cut bouquet of jasmine, lilies, roses, and violets, all warmed with fresh oriental tea leaves and rounded out with base notes of soft musk.

Now, I haven’t had a massage bar from FCS before but I am thinking that it is essentially a larger hydrate me which is great. I really like the scent of this one. I’m not great at picking out scents so it is hard for me to say which particular scents I am picking up on. It is definitely a mix of fruit and floral, there isn’t one “category” that I pick up more than the other. It has a nice low melting point so be careful if you are just holding onto it because it will start to melt in your hands.

Inner Goddess Whipped Cream

“Inner Goddess” Whipped Cream

Soft, feminine, and powerful…everything your inner goddess should be. Sweet violet and hints of iris and white florals mingle perfectly with vine-ripened watermelon, juicy fresh apricot and the perfect amount of wild berries.

I really like this whipped cream, it reminds me of Bloom Bloom Room (at least the version that I have in a CYO OCD hand sanitizer). It is very floral and I don’t get too much of the fruit. This lotion is supposed to come with a layer of glitter on top so that’s a heads up for those of you who don’t like glitter. Fortunately, mine had only one tiny spot with glitter on it which is okay with me. I don’t particularly want to be coated in glitter so this worked out better for me.

Later, Baby FCSLaters, Baby Fortune

“Laters, Baby” Fortune Cookie Soap

Just your typical farewell after a steamy romantic encounter…no big deal. Sweet, creamy coconut, salted caramel, warm brown sugar and vanilla with just the right amount of exotic musk and cayenne pepper.

I love the smell of this soap! A lot of people said it smelled like popcorn to them but I definitely get the coconut and caramel. It is a very sweet scent and it smells delicious! I am excited to use this one.

Pleasure Bath Bombs

“Pleasure” Bath Bombs

You want me to put what??? Where??? (just kidding! Do NOT use these internally!) Indulgent caramel drenched wild strawberries with a hint of sugared musk.

I love the smell of these bath bombs! They definitely smell very similar to It’s Showtime from the 2014 Halloween collection. The strawberry comes out as the main scent and I love it! These are absolutely coated in glitter, just as a heads up. I haven’t used these yet so I’m not sure what kind of mess the glitter will make in the tub. I know that when I used the There’s No Place Like Home bath bomb sample, I found glitter on myself for days so I assume it will be just like that.

Red Room Body Wash

“The Red Room” Body Wash

Christian Grey in jeans, and nowhere to run. What else is there to say? Seductive notes of sensual amber, musk, and vanilla with juicy tart berries, hints of warm sandalwood and fluffy sweet marshmallows.

This is my first body wash from Fortune Cookie Soap and I quite enjoy it. The lather on this is nice although the scent is subtle. It isn’t my favourite scent in the collection, I have to say. That’s not to say that I don’t like it, I just prefer other scents to this one. I was hoping that this would just smell like berry and marshmallows but I definitely smell the amber and musk for the most part. It is nice though.

Twitchy Palm OCDTwitchy Palm OCD Back

“Twitchy Palm” OCD Hand Sanitizer

You know… we make a cream for that… A dreamy blend of soft pink petals, juicy watermelon, bright lemon, creamy blonde woods, and vanilla bean chiffon, rounded out with hints of sweet southern sugar.

I LOVE the smell of this hand sanitizer. It might be one of my favourite hand sanitizers from FCS that I have tried so far. The watermelon and lemon are the scents that I pick out the most. This one is another product that is packed full of glitter. However, when you actually rub it in, there isn’t a detectable glitter on your hands (thank goodness!). I have more hand sanitizer than I know what to do with but I am still excited about this one.

Vanilla Linen Spray

“Vanilla” Linen Spray

Say my name! Wait…who’s Steve? As far from traditional vanilla as you can get, we’ve blended your favourite bean with Sicilian lemon and orange zest, bright verbena, heady sweet jasmine, and just a touch of amber, musk, woods, and creamy heliotrope.¬†

I am glad that they have linen sprays. Before this, I was using their personal space sprays on my pillow right before bed every night. I conveniently finished my last bottle the night before this package came so that was awesome. This is a very subtle scent. I had read in the Facebook fan page for FCS that some people weren’t picking up a scent at all. I can smell it a little bit but it’s only when I shove my face right into the pillow. It’s the citrus that I get the most which I am happy about because I didn’t want this to be too musky. As another side note, this came in a frosted glass bottle that is beautiful! I am impressed with the new packaging!

I am really happy with this collection! Even though the theme does nothing for me, I am happy with the products and the scents. I haven’t been disappointed by FCS yet and I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Coming up next is their “Winter Has Come” collection which is based on Game of Thrones. I have already ordered this and I am so excited to receive it!

Fortune Cookie Soap Winter 2014 Unboxing

It’s here, it’s here, it’s heeeeere! I obviously get far too excited when my Fortune Cookie Soap products arrive. I have been trying to avoid seeing any spoilers which is pretty difficult with the fan base that this company has. Since I’m in Canada, it takes a little bit longer for my box to get here than some peoples so I’ve been pretty impatient!

For those of you who don’t know, Fortune Cookie Soap is an indie bath and body company based out of Oklahoma. They have one retail store but most of their business takes place online. You can order products from their website but they also have this quarterly subscription service called The Soap Box.

Every 3 months, the company comes out with a new seasonal line and about 2-3 weeks before the launch of this line, they send out the soap boxes. In each box you will find one product for each scent of this new line. When they do launch these lines you can get each scent in multiple different products but this box gives you a chance to see what each scent actually smells like. The box is $20 quarterly for US residents, $28 quarterly for Canadians, and $34 quarterly for those of you living internationally.

This is my second box so far and I get so excited for it to come in the mail. Tucker gets excited when we have mail too so here is a picture of him trying to get in on the action.

Tucker Winter 2014 Box

This box is called the “Old Fashioned Family Christmas” box and the theme is based on the movie Christmas Vacation. I haven’t seen the movie before (I know, shame on me!) but I am definitely going to be watching it this year so I can get all the references for these products.

       admin-ajaxadmin-ajax (1)

The Soap Box comes with a beautiful card that tells you what each product is along with corresponding pictures so you know what is what in the box. They also come with a unique $10 code that is printed on the back of the card. Don’t share this code with anybody because they are a one time use kind of thing.

Alright, let’s get started with the products!

admin-ajax (3)

“Moose Mug” Cuticle Butter (Can I refill your egg nog…?)

Rich cream, egg, and a touch of nutmeg.

Let me just say that the cuticle butters from FCS are phenomenal! I have one of their others and it is amazing. They are so thick but they literally just melt like butter when you rub them into your skin. This one is packed absolutely to the brim and I can’t see myself running out of this anytime soon. One thing you need to be careful with these is that they can make your hands a little greasy while they sink in so just be careful with what you are touching.

I know that rum isn’t one of the scents in this one but it smells just like an alcoholic egg nog with the rum in it. I wouldn’t say it is my favourite FCS scent but I do like it and I will definitely use it!

                           admin-ajax (4)admin-ajax (5)

“Mele Kelekimaka” OCD Hand Sanitizer¬†(With visions of swimming pools dancing in your head.)

Tropical spiced rum, Tahitian vanilla, sprinkled with jasmine petals and twisted woods.

I just had to include a picture of the back of this bottle because the colour is absolutely stunning! It looks like the ocean on vacation. The OCD hand sanitizers are another FCS product that I love. They include aloe and vitamins so that it not only sanitizes but moisturizes as well.

It’s funny because rum is one of the listed scents for this one and I can’t smell it like I can in the egg nog scent. I think for me, it is the vanilla and jasmine that I really smell for this one. Not exactly the most winterish scent but I like it a lot!

“‘Tis the Season to be Mary” Fortune Cookie Soap (Buy this for your wife…God rest her soul)

A hint of sweet almond with warm swirls of tobacco

Fortune cookie soaps are the company’s trademark product and they are adorable. Each one comes with a fortune, and the themed boxes seem to be quotes from the movie that they are based off of. I like to use my soaps to wash my hands with until they start to break down and then I put them in my FCS Soap Saver to use in the shower.

I read the description of this and thought “eek, tobacco.” I wasn’t super excited about the scent because of that. However, when I actually smelled it, it ended up being one of my favourite scents from this box. The actual design of the soap isn’t as fancy as some of them have been but it’s cute. I can definitely smell the almond and I think the tobacco gives it a depth that I really like. I can’t wait to use this!

admin-ajax (8)

“Sparky” Hydrate Me (We dedicate this to the FCS Family Christmas, drumroll please!)

Scrumptious vanilla pumpkin waffles topped with brown sugar, pecans and sheets of fresh whipped cream.

Yum. Just yum. Although this is a scent that I think would have been more at home in a fall collection, I still love it. I have been wanting to try a hydrate me but didn’t want to pay $10 for one in case I didn’t love it. That is why I was so excited to see that one would be included in this box. They are shaped like little Christmas bulbs and I think there were multiple different colours that you could have gotten. Mine has a little smear mark but that is okay. These have such a low melting point that they are easily smudged.

I absolutely love this type of scent. I can really smell the pumpkin and the pecans and that makes me so unbelievably happy. It’s too bad I had gotten out of the shower right before this was delivered or I would already be using it. The pink portion of the bulb does look like it has a little bit of a fine glitter in it so hopefully that won’t stay on the skin. Also, for those who don’t know, you use the hydrate me’s at the end of your shower. Out of the stream of water, you rub it everywhere (or just on dry areas) and then let it air dry. I have heard they are incredibly moisturizing!

“SQUIRREL!” Whipped Cream (Handmade with a special low cholesterol recipe)

A festive blend of apples, sun ripened strawberries and plums dancing with zests of orange and a splash of lime

I also love love love the FCS whipped creams. They are thick, luxurious, moisturizing, quick absorbing, and just smell divine. Am I obsessed or what? They are basically the body butter/lotion for this company and they are my favourite lotion ever. This soap box, much like last season, had the option of four different whipped creams. I got SQUIRREL! and it smells heavenly (I will list the other 3 whipped cream scent descriptions below). I really pick up on the apple which I love. It is just so fruity and amazing. It is also a beautiful pale pink and I know that isn’t important for use but I love it.

Here are the other three possible whipped cream scents:

“Jelly of the Month Club” (It’s the gift that keeps on giving…) –¬†Succulent strawberries, sweet vanilla sugar, and sticky syrup with a squeeze of orange

“Jello Surprise” (A little cat kibble never hurt anyone!) –¬†Festive plum with a zesty curl of citrus, all wrapped up pretty-like with winter orchid and soft sandalwood

“Bend Over & I’ll Show You (Where do you think you’re going to put a tree that big? “I’ve got an idea!”) –¬†Tart cranberry, crisp pine and herbal spruce warmed by clove and a splash of sweet mandarin orange

      admin-ajax (11)admin-ajax (12)

“I Pledge Allegiance, Amen” Shower Steamer (They want you to say the damn grace…!)

A brisk outdoorsy blend of blue spruce and balsam fir, fresh mint and garden herbs

With this one, it is definitely a piney mint kind of smell. I wouldn’t say that this is my favourite scent because it reminds me a little bit of a Vicks Vaporub kind of smell. However, I think it will be perfect for winter when you are feeling congested or have a cold. These are placed out of the stream of water in your shower and they steam up around you to scent the air. With the menthol type of smell, this would probably really help to clear up your sinuses! I have been wanting to try the shower steamers so I am so happy this was included in the box!

        admin-ajax (13)admin-ajax (14)

“Fried Pussycat” Whipped Soap (Because who doesn’t want to smell like fried pussycat!)

Juicy plum and whipped caramel wrapped in artisan bourbon vanilla and jasmine blossoms

I have never tried or even seen a whipped soap before so I am intrigued by this one. My jar did come only about half full so I’m not sure if this was just how they were filling them or if the whipped aspect deflated a bit during my box’s week long travel to get here. Either way, I am glad to try it and I’m sure this will be enough to figure out if I would want to purchase it or not.

When I first opened this, I really couldn’t smell much at all but that was probably because my nose was on overload from smelling too many things in a short amount of time. Now that I have come back to it I can definitely smell the plum and vanilla in it. I really like the scent and I will love trying this out.

“Christmas Bonus” Deep Conditioner (Our third annual mystery fragrance)

No hints! There’s a $50 FCS Gift Certificate up for grabs, so email your best guesses to A winner will be chosen and announced on our Facebook page on December 22nd.

I had forgotten that The Grinch and The Nightmare Before Christmas boxes had had mystery fragrances. I think that both of those were perfume oils. This one is a deep conditioner which I think is a new product for FCS since I don’t remember seeing it on the website before. It is very thick so it will probably be a pretty nice hair treatment that I am excited to try! I am going to need to sniff long and hard to try and figure out what this smells like because winning a gift certificate would be amazing! It does smell really nice though so I hope this is a product that will leave a lingering scent in my hair.

Winter 2014 Confetti

Can we just talk about how cute their packaging is! Included with the packing worms are little confetti pieces that say “Merry Christmas.” It’s the little things that make me happy, along with all of the smell goods of course!

The Winter Launch Party will be November 21 2014 at 6:30 pm CST (or 7:30 pm if you are Eastern like me). They will announce on Facebook when the live party will be starting and as soon as the Launch Party finishes, they will bring the website back online so you can purchase these products. I am really excited to try everything and will definitely be purchasing at least a couple of products after the launch party.

If you would like to check out the Soap Box you can follow this link: They are taking orders for the Spring 2015 box which will be shipping out on February 9th. If you do order, you will be charged every 3 months from the time you sign up.

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you get the Soap Box and what your favourite Winter 2014 scent was!

Fortune Cookie Soap

Since I am not due to get any subscription/beauty boxes for the next little while, I thought I would start off with a post about some of my favourite products at the moment. There is one main company that I am loving lately and would like to shout my love for it from the rooftops!

Fortune Cookie Soap

The company that I just can’t get enough of is Fortune Cookie Soap. This company is an indie soap company based in Oklahoma and aside from their one retail store, they are based online. I cannot say enough great things about this company!

Some of you may have had experience with Fortune Cookie Soap (FCS) through their quarterly soap box subscription. This is the way that I first experienced their products and lets just say, they have gotten a lot of my money in a short time. FCS creates a line of products for each season and they send out their soap box a few weeks before the launch of these lines. Every box comes with one product for each scent of the new line which lets you try out the different scents. My first box was the Fall 2014 “Witch, Please” box and I was in LOVE! They offer such a wide variety of different products and scents that are definitely worth checking out!

The subscription box is $20 for US residents, $28 for Canadian residents, and $34 for International residents. You are charged this every 3 months from the original date that you signed up and it comes out automatically unless you decide to cancel it. Along with the products that come in the box, each person is sent a unique $10 coupon code that you can use towards a purchase of products (it can’t be used towards a soapbox subscription). Even though it is a little bit more for me since I live in Canada, I think it is definitely worth it to subscribe!! I will definitely be blogging my unboxings of these subscription boxes when they come (the next one ships November 3).

On top of their fabulous products, FCS has the best customer service of any company I have made a purchase from. They are so focused on what their customers want, and bend over backwards to clear up any issues that you may have. I can see myself purchasing from this company for a long time to come and I would definitely recommend checking it out if you are really into soap, bath, and body products. You can find their products at One thing that is important to remember with this company is that the products are made in small handmade batches. There may be some product variation in colour or design because of this but it helps to add to the charm of the products and company.

I have been involved in the launches of 2 product collections so far. The first was the “Witch, Please” collection and the theme of this is based on The Wizard of Oz and Wicked. The scents from this collection are: Swankified, There’s No Place Like Home, Flying Monkeys, BFF’s, Wicked Good, Green is the New Black, Miss Popular, The Shiz, No Good Deed (only available in some products because of the high cinnamon content), Hair Flip, and Roy G. Biv.

The second collection was called “Third Time’s the Charm” and the theme of this one was based on Beetlejuice. This one was a mini collection which means that each scent is only available in one particular product instead of several different products. The scents from this collection are: Prince Valium, Ghost with the Most, Here Lies…, Day-O, Recently Deceased, Inferno Room, Girls Girls, Beetle Breath, Strange and Unusual, It’s Showtime, Zombie Repellent (re-released from a past collection), and Belle (re-released from the “Magic is Coming” collection).

Now, onto my favourite products that I have purchased so far:


“Swankified” Walnut Scrub (“Witch, Please” collection) $12.99

This scrub is amazing! As of right now, if I had to choose a facial scrub to use for the rest of my life, this would be the one! The walnut particles are fine enough so that they are not too abrasive on your face, and it works well for your body too! The website scent description is:

“Bunches of ripe bananas mashed into sweet, sugary cake batter, then topped with walnuts and baked to a golden brown.”

It definitely is a bakery scent so if you like that sort of thing, this may be for you!

“Soap Bar Sampler” $8.95

This sampler comes with 11 sample slices from different types of bar soaps that the company has in stock. This is a great purchase so that you can smell a variety of their scents for a low cost. I use the Soap Saver from this company for the little sample slices because it is easier than trying to wash your body with a small piece of soap just in your hand.

The samples I received were:

Once a Beach Always a Beach, There’s No Place Like Home, Swankified, The mOd BoD, Miss Popular, Sweet Tart Martini, Hot Apple Cider, Green is the New Black, Creamy Dreamy Oatmeal Cookie, Butter Beer, and Clearly Complexion (not pictured because my brother had already stolen it to use for himself)

Whipped Creams $10.99 (4 oz), $16.49 (8 oz), $12.99 (sampler pack)

I have tried a variety of their whipped cream body butters so far and I have to say that these are by far the best body lotion that I have ever tried. The scents are amazing, the formula is thick, it is non-greasy, and it absorbs quickly. The scents I have tried are:

“Recently Deceased” (“Third Time’s the Charm” collection) – “Halloween candy corn, sweetened with campfire marshmallows”. The whipped cream that I got in this scent is a beautiful peachy orange colour and it smells divine!! It is definitely a sweet candy corn scent so if you do not like super sweet scents, this probably isn’t for you.

“Belle” (“Magic is Coming” collection, re-released in the “Third Time’s the Charm” Collection) – “This body butter is a tropical paradise in a jar! It begins with top notes of mandarin, Mexican lime, tangerine, and kumquat; middle & base nots of watermelon, tart green apples, coconut & pikaki”.¬†This one was not coloured for me but the smell is still amazing. It is a perfect blend of fruity and floral.¬†

“BFF’s” (“Witch, Please” collection) – “Sticky sugared blueberries and luscious baked pumpkin with all the fall spices atop a warm cake accord”. I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the blueberry and pumpkin combination but when I tried it, I loved it!! You could definitely smell both of them in there and it was beautiful.

“Green is the New Black”(“Witch, Please” collection) – “Top notes of orange, apple, pear, pineapple, and cherries lured into autumn by pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, all rounded out with warm vanilla-infused sugar”.¬†This one was probably my least favourite whipped cream scent of the ones that I have tried but that is by no means a bad thing. I definitely still liked this scent, there was just a lot going on with it.¬†

“Wicked, Good” (“Witch, Please” collection) – “Sweet pumpkin pie filling with the perfect touch of cinnamon, ginger, and brown sugar, finished with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream”. ¬†This is a perfect pumpkin pie scent! It is a very nice fall scent so it fit perfectly well for the timing of this launch release.

I have tried several different types of their products but I am going to leave this post here for the time being. If you would like to hear more about other Fortune Cookie Soap products, leave me a comment and I will definitely get to posting that!
