  1. I remember finding a tutorial (need to go to my pinterest board to find it first... I'll edit it in in a lil bit.) that showed how to turn a solid bar of soap into liquid soap. It's a lil bit of work, but ya don't mind it, it could work. EDIT: Found the tutorial and here it is. http://www.thefarmersnest.com/2011/11/liquid-hand-soap-diy.html
  2. I got the sorcerer's stone (and the horocrux bath melt, and the Chocolate Frog Hydrate Me, and butterbeer body butter, ravenclaw soap... eeeeep!) but I rationalized it was going away soon so... Have either of you used your ravenclaw soap yet? Does the fragrance linger long after washing your hands? (which I hope it does...) Are there any other products from that you'd recommend? (I also bought from the sale section, a Down to Earth Hydrate Me! conditioning bar too, since it sounded cool (& was on sale) I cant wait for my FCS box to arrive! It looks like LUSH but way cuter! I haven't tried mine out. Mainly since I wanna save it for a lil while. Still have a bunch of soap to go through. But, I got my boyfriend a gift set as part of his Christmas present last year (pretty sure it was the Billy Goats one) and I remember trying it and the scent stayed on my hands for a lil while after, but after like an hour or so, the scent was gone. I'd guess the same with the Ravenclaw one. I would totally recommend their body butters. They're the first thing I've EVER tried from FCS and it's by far my favorite product. If you don't wanna commit to the full size versions, you can buy a sample set and pick 4 scents that're currently available. I've tried out a bunch of scents this way. (SOOOOO~ tempted to get the full size of In The Loop, much to my boyfriend's dismay, since he doesn't really like food scented products, which made it hard for me to figure out what to get for him from FCS for Christmas.) I've noticed that since I got my 2 sets of samples (back in December), the price has gone up on the samples so that it's more expensive than the full size. Not sure why though. I haven't gotten a chance to try out the bar soaps or bath bomb I got. Though, I'm pretty sure that if you love the fortune cookie version, the bar soap is essentially a larger version of it.
  3. In my last FCS order I got a Ravenclaw soap too! It was the only thing I ended up getting from the Wizard Collection. I thought about getting the Sorcerer's Stone soap, but I ended up passing on it... forget why though. Oh well. I ended up getting two bar soaps besides the Ravenclaw fortune cookie -- In the Loop and Kiss My Vine and the Lemon Macaron bath bomb.
  4. The sample one you get in the Soap Box and ones you buy off their site are 1 oz. samples. If ya want a full size, I have one and I can say that it's a 5.5 oz. container. It doesn't say on the their site or on the actual container, so I had to refer to my order for it. Though other ones are 5 oz....
  5. Below is the list of items that I've gotten on my wishlist and items I traded. I wanted to slim down my original post so it'd be a lil smaller and I'll edit this post and add items to it as I complete trades. The items will be added in batches, so items that have be traded will remain in my first post 'til I have a decent number of items (> 6), then they'll be added here.

  6. If I remember correctly, you also get a $10 voucher towards your future purchase. So you get $10-ish in samples and the rest goes toward your next purchase. I can understand why you feel a lil underwhelmed though. Even with the $10 voucher, the samples aren't the largest, but least you can use them all more than once, generally speaking. That's actually part of the reason I haven't subscribed, among other reasons. But anywho, they're a small business, so they don't have the fancy packaging larger companies have and everything's handmade. Just because they don't have the best & fanciest packaging, doesn't mean the product itself is bad. To each their own. You're entitled to your opinion, but have you actually tried out the products? From what you've mentioned, it doesn't seem like you've even attempted to try them out. The only thing I personally don't like about FCS as a whole is that almost all their scents are food-related, which kinda sucks since I generally like florals and fresh scents more than food scents. I can't say much else about their actual products, since I've only tried out their "whipped cream" body butters, which I love.
  7. So many cute kids and pets!!! Hard to keep up with all the cuteness!! I LOVE IT!!! TOO CUTE!! Aww!! Whoa! A cat who actually doesn't seem to mind water! Lawl~
  8. Loving all the animals pics! So cute!! Wish I had a pet. Anywho, I'm more of a dog person, but I do like cats... downside, I'm allergic, so I usually can't be in the same room as one for long without taking my allergy meds, which isn't always effective.... Oddly though, it doesn't happen with every cat I get in contact with. Also, I can't wait for the "core" bag to be released! I wanna know what the pencil and white bottle is!!
