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

IMG_20150331_204813

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!

IMG_20150331_205031

“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 ’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!
