Fortune Cookie Soap Box: Fall Soap Box 2014

Recommended Posts

I was in love with my BFF sample and ordered tons of stuff in it just to discover I don't really like it after all.

 

If you join the facebook fan group, you'd probably be able to sell it!  I've bought a few things that are OSS from there ;]

I grabbed the Here Lies bath bomb, Prince Valium perfume, Zombie Repellent, and The Shiz perfume and foaming hand soap. I also won the Strange and Unusual FCS from a giveaway, so I have that coming as well!

I was going to buy anything from the Halloween collection, but apparently after I had a few margarita's last night..I placed an order. I got the Halloween bar soap, personal space, & whipped cream. And the Belle whipped cream because everyone in the fan group raves about it and I need to smell it. And then some foaming soaps in There's No Place Like Home and The Shiz (accidentally ordered two of those). 

 

I'm not really feeling the Fall collection. Bring on Winter (just the new scents, not the actual season..I'm not ready for the cold).

I was actually in the facebook fan group not too long ago and I had to leave because you are all enablers in there ;)

LoL! It's true. Almost everyone there is a hardcore enabler, and just seeing people's pictures of their stashes and purchases makes me want things. I'm constantly seeing trades/sales and going, "Yessssss... Wait, no! I don't need that!" to myself.

Sometimes I just don't understand Fortune Cookie Soap...they are constantly adding new events and collections to buy, and adding even more CYO events, positioned right near big releases. Why not just focus on making regular orders and getting them out in a timely manner? Why do they feel the need to keep adding things? I would rather there be fewer things going on, and get my order in a week or two max.

I received my Halloween order today.  Recently Deceased smells delicious - pretty much exactly like you would imaging candy corn + marshmallow smells like.  I really want to lick it!  Inferno Room has me confused.  I don't smell any cinnamon at all.  It smells like minty play-doh to me, lol.  I actually think it smells kind of gross.  Oh well, can't win 'em all!

 

eta:  Oh! I know, Inferno Room smells exactly like the fake flower section at JoAnn Fabrics!  Super weird.  I wonder if it will change when it melts?

Agreed. My order from 9/26 is still unfulfilled.

Well as the email with my order confirmation says turnaround time is 7 business days, which is today. So if I don't get tracking today, I might email them with my thoughts about all these other events that are preventing our regular orders from going out.

 

ETA: From what I can tell, they are still about 100 orders away from mine. And there's the CYO perfume this weekend. Sigh.

Mine too. I was actually debating picking up another one of the Halloween soaps whenever they do the restock but I just noticed they're doing another CYO even this Friday. So...even if they do a restock, I seriously doubt I'd get it by Halloween. Irritating. 

 

They're trying to do waaaaay too much at once, in my opinion.

I don't get why CYO is even a thing?  Why don't they just make it available for purchase all the time?  It's obvious they keep the ingredients on hand.  I don't see what's in it for them (besides stress) by making them special events.

I think if they're going to do them at all, which I don't understand why they do it either, but it makes it easier if it's contained to a single time frame. Make them all at once, send them all at once, and be done. But they should not be centered around or even close to collection launches, restocks, or soap boxes.

maybe the CYO special events have a greater appeal because of it's limited availability? I'm only speculating and can see how limited editions have more impulse purchases  

 

I'm pretty new to FCS and I am still learning of their products.  CYO seems to cool to me because museum scents are available so I can try out older concoctions.  I don't think I'd be good at creating my own scents, honestly.  But I haven't participated in any CYO events, as of now.

 

Is anyone going to participate in the perfume oil CYO?

 

side note: FINALLY got my halloween shipping notice.  I swear, I always think they forget about little ol' me.

I thought the CYO was really cool the first time around when they did one for whipped creams in summer or whenever that was, but it hasn't really appealed to me since then. I definitely wish they'd do less of those and focus on the seasonal collections.

 

I actually loved pretty much all the scents in this fall collection. I'm interested to see what the winter theme is though.

Hmm yeah I ordered on 9/26 and was told 7 business days TAT. That would make today my 9th business day and my order status is still "unfulfilled." Technically I ordered late on 9/26, but still. Frustrating!

My order shipped, I'm probably still going to send them an email with some customer feedback though. I want to let them know how I feel about my experience. I might wait until after my order arrives though to see if something leaked for the third time. My last 2 shipments have had something leak, and it's starting to get on my nerves.

Still no shipping on my order. Also just saw someone in the FB group got a shipping notice & her order number is almost 100 after mine. Annoying.

Wow, I can't believe how behind they are right now!  I haven't placed an order in months and was planning to buy some WC's and perfumes for Christmas gifts.  Guess I should place my order soon so I'll actually have it on time.....

Not that it makes a difference, but if it's any consolation, I decided I hate what I ordered.  The more I smell the WC the more I really, really hate it.  Both the WC and wax tart smell like plastic to me.  Hopefully you guys like your orders and they were worth the long wait.

Which WC did you get?  I haven't liked any of the wax tarts I've gotten in the past.  They all smelled ok but I swear only lasted an hour or so with very little scent throw.

I got the Halloween one, Recently Deceased. I like all the other WCs I have, just not feeling this Halloween stuff after all.

I took one look at the WC and knew I wouldn't like it. I only got the Here Lies bath bomb, Prince Valium perfume, Zombie Repellent (based on rave reviews), and a couple The Shiz items. Sucks that things are not so good right now, I want to like FCS, but it's just not cutting it with all the other indie companies coming out with great Halloween bath and body stuff.

Exactly. A few months ago, FCS was my favorite company I was buying from. I'm starting to get a little disenchanted and feel like some of the indie bath and body companies are really beating them out in terms of product, TAT, quality control and price. I might be starting to get over FCS, but I'm sure I'll keep doing the Soap Box because the themed boxes are really fun and I like that it's quarterly.

I just sent them an e-mail. Today is day nine & they state they're at a seven day lead time. I understand things happen & maybe they're behind or something, but how hard is it to communicate? Send out an email or post on Facebook or something and just say 'Hey we're running three days behind' or whatever. 

I just want my stuff before Halloween.

    • 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!
