Fortune Cookie Soap: 2014 Spring Box

Recommended Posts

Yay, mine has arrived as well! I also picked up a sugar scrub because it's leg-shaving time, and I get the smoothest shave I have ever encountered with that stuff (it's hell on razors, but, hey, Dollar Shave Club makes that expense a little less painful to deal with!). I'm going to try the shampoo/conditioner bars now because I'm actually going on a trip this weekend and want to make sure I like how my hair reacts to it before I put this stuff in my suitcase. I tried bumble + bumble thickening shampoo/conditioner (I had a set of foils, and I felt like using up some foils this week) last night and *hate* it. I keep forgetting that one thing I do not need is thicker hair. Thank goodness for hair claws.

I'm so jealous of ya'lls mini sets. I had my first experience with FCS. A girl sent me a solid body butter as an extra in a trade, and I fell in love! Now I want more, I'm on a no buy, and the summer box doesn't ship til mid-May. lol. 

 

I also tried the BaB thickening shampoo tonight and was not impressed. My hair is thick enough! lol.

You should check here since you're on a no-buy.  Trades don't count, right? :)

So even after having a bad experience with them before, i ordered more dry shampoo( their stuff is amazing) and i got it in 3 days unlike last time it was two [email protected] so i will order from them but not when they launch a new line so i know my order will get to me i guess. But look at the size difference (not that its a bad thing) 400400 The biggest one is from their garden of good and evil collection, the second largest is the one i bought it is zero from the nightmare before christmas collection, and the small one is a sample of zero from their soapbox. As you can see their sizes are drastically different [email protected] i love how they changed the bottle, packaging and size though that is a plus :) also it smells just like fruitloops to me ha

For anyone that has ever had something in the "Sally" fragrance from the Nightmare Before Christmas collection, if you remember what it smells like, could you tell me if it smells like coconut to you?

 

I ordered a body butter in "Sally" and got it today. I was expecting a fresh laundry kind of a smell, but instead it smells like coconut. Nice, but very coconutty. Someone in one of the reviews on FCS's website said it smells like Yankee Candles "Clean Cotton," and it smells nothing like that to me! I feel like I got the wrong scent in here or something.

My daughter got the the soap in Sally in her winter box.  She said it smelled nothing like coconuts & she agrees w/the fresh laundry description of the soap she received.

 

Maybe contact FCS and let them know.

Thank you for the information!

 

It's very heavy on the coconut. My mom is here, so I asked her to smell my arm without telling her what the scent was, and she got the coconut right away. Weird! I'll e-mail them and ask about it.

Thanks for the information, everyone!

 

I wrote to Fortune Cookie Soap and they already sent me a new batch and made sure that it's the Sally scent, so I should get that sometime soon. Nice customer service!

I have Sally - soap and two different bottles of the room freshener - not coconut scented but like fresh laundry/cotton scented. Never had Clean Cotton from Yankee Candles but mine reminds me of when you have freshly washed laundry using something like Sun detergent.

That's the smell I was expecting, the fresh detergent smell. They've been nice enough to send me a new container of the Sally body butter, so this one should smell more like what I was expecting. Plus it'll go way better with my Make It Rain sugar scrub.

Is there a Summer Soap Box thread yet? :) I placed a small order for the whipped cream and roll-on perfume, both in Make it Rain (I am obsessed!), and one of the wooden soap dishes to keep my cookie soaps on until they collapse and are relegated to the soap saver (which I knit myself out of cotton). I have to keep my orders small as the shipping starts at expensive and moves up to ridonkulous with each addition of product. (Canada, sigh.) Love the cuticle butter. The scent is too sweet to be my fave, but far from the worst in the box, and that little sucker is going to last forever!
