Fortune Cookie Soap Box: Fall Soap Box 2014

Recommended Posts

So I haven't been checking this thread so I'm completely sorry if this was already mentioned!

 

I got my small order today. I always get 2 wax tart samplers with my $10 coupon because I go through them like crazy and the FCS ones are good for at least 4 uses...so they're always a great deal.

 

I noticed I got a free Fortune Cookie Soap in my box that is called "Bundle Up!" and it has a really nice fruity/pine scent to it. Is this old news to everyone? I haven't seen this scent or the soap yet, and I also have never received a free soap with my order before, so that was kind of fun!

This was one of the soaps from the Christmas in July sale. I saved all the scent descriptions in a Google doc. Here is the one for bundle up: A unique blend of juicy apple, cassis, jasmine and Siberian fir

You are super lucky then, those were only available during the crazy Christmas in July sale, they sold out, and were presumed gone. I got that one and I think it smells really good!

I am not big a fan of the Halloween spoiler they just posted on Facebook. The actual product is mega cute, but the scent... bleh! Then again, everyone can't like everything (and it'll save me some money not buying it, lol).

 

 

Scent notes:

A fortune cookie soap: "it's called "Strange & Unusual" and in accordance with the name, the scents used are sticky black licorice and black cherry!"

That sounds really yummy to me!  I think I may really like the Halloween stuff.

Ugh this punctuation is killing me (or lack of), if this is incorrectly printed on all of the Halloween products, I really don't think I can buy anything.

Oh god that makes me cringe!!! I'm trying to think of another way to read it, but I can't really unless it was "THREE times the charm" not third. Sigh, that's a bummer.

Feel you guys on the punctuation error. Misplaced apostrophes or lack thereof is a huge pet peeve of mine.

 

So I'm kind of confused on this Halloween collection. Is it individual stuff we can purchase? I could have sworn FCS said it was a package deal and you either got them all or you didn't but maybe I'm going crazy, who knows anymore.

I think it's going to be like the Summer collection, where it's sold individually or in a set and will be available for a month or so.

I saw the spoiler video on the FCS fan group facebook page, and I'm kind of "ehhh" about the whole collection. The bar soap is cute for sure. Other than that, the only two things I'm interested in are the "back from the graveyard" products. Plus none of the items, besides the soaps, really scream "Beetlejuice!" to me.

 

Some of the products I just don't understand, like (I'm not sure if I should spoiler this or not!)

 

 

there are  products that smell like popcorn. Bleh! Why? I get that popcorn balls are a Halloween thing, but popcorn is kind of a weird scent for your body/home. It makes me think of that episode of Dirty Jobs where Mike Rowe meets a binturong and the little guy smells just like popcorn.

Yeah I didn't really see anything that stood out to me either. I might just pass on the whole collection. I think a lot of people in the FCS fan group are more enthusiastic about certain scents than I am. The only ones I really liked from the Fall stuff was The Shiz and There's No Place Like Home. I hated all the pumpkin stuff. Everyone else just seemed to go gaga over that.

Absolutely the same here. I did not like the one pumpkin scent I got (Green Is the New Black). I think a good chunk of people in the fan group loooove "foodie" scents, and I totally do not. To me, the only scent that has been worth the fan group hype was Polyjuice Potion. My tastes go more toward the floral, citrus, and green scents, and we don't get a lot of those. I always want to like the foodie scents, because the descriptions sound so good, but almost every time I get one I wind up hating it.

 

@@Ruffinette, that stinks that you didn't like it. Are you sure they are the same scent? I read on the fan group page that there was a mix up with BFF and some other scent (and the mistake was made in a lot of products), so you could have possibly received one of the mix up batches?

I was on the bus so I had to watch the video on mute. I only saw some stuff in the comments and I'm not sure ill like much but those ghosts are adorable!!

Yup, it's definitely the blueberry pumpkin scent - it's just waaaaaay too much for me to handle. I'll stick to my faves - Butterbeer and Polyjuice Potion.

It's too bad so many of you didn't like the pumpkin scents!  I actually loved almost every scent in the whole collection.  But I think The Shiz was my favorite.  Every time I wear the perfume oil I can't stop smelling myself!

    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books. 
    • HEY! You dont seem fat to me. I believe you look wonderful. But still if it feels like you need to loose weight then i can give you some easy tips: You should go on a calorie deficit diet. Also start intermittent fasting that is eating only for 7 to 8 hours a day just. I know you dont like working out. But try doing something what you like in order to boost this process. A walk or dance or playing a sport etc. Its up to you completely but just give it a thought. And last one PATIENCE. This is the smallest required by all but the tuffest to follow . This weight loss wont just happen in a day. It may take time. That may be long too but you need to keep yourself focused in order to achieve what you want so YOU SHOULD KEEP GOING. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR JOURNEY!
