Howdy fellow Housemate! biggrin.gif  Oooh, I cant wait for my order to get here- I hope it's here before Wed (I'm going home for a few days to visit family..and will be verrry far away from my HP soapie goodies if it comes late!)

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.

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...wink.gif  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. :P 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.

I wanted to order some fortune cookie soaps and they have changed there site somewhat. Where do you put the $10 discount code from the box? I could not find anywhere to put it in while checking out to redeem it.  Did I miss something?

I placed an order the other day and there was a coupon code box on the last page of checking out (the page that has the button at the bottom that reads something like "check out" or "place order"). I'm used to companies having a three-step checkout (enter shipping info, enter credit card info, review & check out), but theirs only had two steps.

It worked when I tried it tonight, I don't know what the deal was when I tried before.  The $10 coupon included in the summer box did work, although shipping was $8.95, so that was most of the coupon.

Glad it worked for you! My shipping was almost $13, which is kind of crazy (though I did buy quite a bunch of stuff), but I assume it's because they're a pretty small company.

Yeah, besides them having mostly food scents, I HATE the fact their shipping seem a bit high, which I'm thinking is because they do a range of shipping, depending on the amount you buy, besides being a small company. >.< It's also why I try and buy when there's a "free shipping" deal (like ones with no minimum amount attached). Though normally, it's free shipping over $75, I think.

I couldn't find it on the site, which is weird since I've seen it before. But, I put items in my cart and calculated shipping and it's right. It's a LOT of soap. Though you can also get other things from their site, which can quickly add up. It's good if you like stocking up on stuff though. :P

Yeah, I also didn't like the fact that their shipping is so much, but I kind of understand.

 

I could totally spend $75 there! LoL. My stockpile of bath items is at about zero now, though.

I'm used to buying stuff from a place that doesn't have free shipping until you hit $500.  It's $7.50 up to $150, $12 up to $300, and $14 up to $500.  Smaller companies can't get the deals on shipping that larger companies get, and they simply don't operate on the scale that most of the companies we're used to dealing with.  

 

They're launching another collection this Friday, unrelated to the stuff they sent out in the summer box.  It's apparently based on _Once Upon a Time_, or maybe just magic or fairy tales.  I'm antsy to see what they roll out before I decide on what to order!

It would be easy to spend that much if you were getting body butters, scrubs, perfumes, etc though :)

$75 is cheap in that cheapest postage to the uk is $23.95 so to buy a couple of soaps a body butter ,solid shampoo came to $48 with $10 discount from the last soap box . I'm part of the uk group order group and the latest order for the summer collection for me is $250.94 but most of us order between $70-$258 each time and between 15-19 of us we split shipping usually £5 each customs £4.50 each and the major price from the group host to our homes varies £7.10- £34 depending on royal fail or courier.so we tend to do a big group order for collections limited edition or new season ranges and do a small personal ones with our soap code in between if that makes sense. We prefer to use and pay for a good company and choice of which you don't get in the uk . Also $ 75 in soap as someone else said is an easy spend on scrubs, creams, soap, lip scrubs, perfumes and so on . Compare with say bomb cosmetics or lush its fcs all the way .

Uhoh.  They're prepping a carnival-themed mini collection.  I can already hear the giant sucking sound in my general wallet area.

DANGERDANGERDANGER! It's out now! I haven't looked at it yet, but I have a feeling I'll be ordering this weekend. ETA: Huh. Or maybe not. I don't do solid soap, bathtub stuff, or body sprays. That leaves a sugar scrub, and I think I want a Mother Pucker sugar scrub.

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

I'm allergic to bar soap. It leaves a film on my skin that itches like crazy.

They're having a "Christmas in July" sale over at Fortune Cookie Soaps with some great sounding new Christmas themed soaps and scrubs. Regular fortune cookie shaped soaps (individual ones) are also on sale. I have a whole cart full of things I don't need at all, but the shipping is outrageous this time. The shipping (from Oklahoma to Florida) is more than $18. I just can't do that.

Solid soap makes me itch like crazy, so most of this sale is out for me.  I wish more of the scents were available in scrubs!  There are only two new scrubs in it, and both have Notes of Quease for me (huckleberries in one and banana in the other).  Oh, well.  The summer collection scrubs are the same (regular) price as the sale price of the CiJ stuff, so I'll just get one of those in Mother Pucker (mint and citrus!) and a Don't Be Jelly in Do You Salsa Or Do You Mango? to finish out the summer.  The shipping might be high, but I understand why, and getting a couple of things here stops me from getting *way* too much stuff at B&BW, so I'm willing to pay it.  

 

And I need to practice restraint now since the _Once Upon a Time_ collection is right around the corner, and I have a feeling I'm going to want most of it because I am more than a little fond of fairy tales (oh, Comparative Literature 330, how I miss you!  What a magical time we had!) even if I *am* something like a year and a half behind on the series.

Aww, that's a bummer that they make you itch! I went ahead and ordered a bunch of stuff for presents *cough*and myself*cough* and paid the shipping anyway. The company has been SO nice to me trying to figure this out, too.

Just got an email: Today is the day they're going to launch the _Once Upon a Time_ limited edition collection, and as a part of that, shipping will be a flat $6.95 per order!

    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
