Fortune Cookie Soap: Winter Soap Box 2014

Recommended Posts

I'm actually glad "Squirrel" isn't going to be a baked goods scent. I was totally expecting it to be something nutty - like walnut - incorporated into some sort of baked good. I just hope it has a true fruity scent!

 

That being said, I'm on the same page about it not being wintry. I just hope there's a really good christmas tree scent. I'd buy every single option in that scent because it's my all-time favorite!

The only problem with Christmas tree scents is that usually they are not body safe. So that's why most of the ones you see are in candles only. So if we get a Christmas tree scented wax tart, I'll be thrilled, even if I don't have a warmer yet, but I plan on getting one eventually.

I had no idea! Shoot :(

I'm not sure how I feel about this box yet.  I'm sure I will like a lot of the stuff and anything else can be stocking stuffers!

I guess I'm in the minority since I don't love the theme for this box :blush:  Hopefully we'll get some wintery scents.  I do think the strait up fruit scent for Squirrel is a bit odd.

I LOVE the Hydrate Mes! :D :D

 

Ok, I have to ask... is the incorrect spelling of 'old fashioned' a reference to the movie..? I've seen it a billion times and I can't figure out why they keep spelling it wrong, unless their social media person just can't spell. 

 

ETA: Nevermind, they fixed the Facebook post that was spelled wrong, so I'm guessing it's not on purpose!

the hydrate me's are GREAT and I love the christmas bulk shape.  Hydrate me's are better shipped in the cooler months, cause they melt like crazy in the summer.

I am looking forward to the hydrate me as well. I've bought one full size, and I really liked it. The bulb shape is adorable and I like that it's seasonally appropriate.

I was SO hoping for a nutty smell for "squirrel!" One of my all time favorite Christmas scents is German marzipan which is a German almond paste. I think I was secretly hoping it would smell something similar to that!!!

 

When I think of Christmas I think of apples & cinnamon, oranges & spiced wassail, pine cones, hot chocolate, & let's not forget candy canes & sugar cookies.

 

What smell do you think/hope the hydrate me will be?

Thanks for the info. I'm excited to see a new kind of product from them.

 

I like the cute Hydrate Me in the instagram picture. I hope it's a Christmas type scent, though.

 

Edit: Someone who has inside info. just said this on the facebook group: "I can't reveal the OCD scent, but it is fruity!"

 

I like fruity scents, but this is supposed to be a winter box, and now three out of four items we've been given some kind of scent description for are fruity. :unsure: Hopefully they still smell good. Maybe something will be orange and clove? I hope.

Do you think it's worth getting this box for $34? I'm in Europe...

 

It's good for trying out new scents, but I'm not sure if the monetary value is really there for $34, since most everything is a mini size. It does come with a code for $10 off your next purchase, which is nice, but that might barely cover your shipping for another purchase.

 

Have you bought anything from Fortune Cookie Soap before?

No, I haven't. I've been lurking around their site and boxes for some time and I'm trying to decide if I should get this box as one of many holiday beauty gifts I'm buying myself this year LOL I know these are only minis and that's why I'm not sure...

I realize there may not be the monetary value in this purchase but are the products good and fun to try enough so that it's worth in on that level? Some fun and nice smelling and adorable items to try for Christmas?

 

The shipping cost of sending one item to Europe is over $14 so the code doesn't even cover that...

Not unless you are really into the spoilers so far.  I think 3(?) products and scents have been revealed so that's about 1/2 the box.  The sizes are very small for the most part.  If you just want to try them out you might do better waiting for the launch where they have discount codes.  You could probably get 2-3 full sized items for the price of the box.

I've got to agree with everyone saying this is more of the same foodie/fruity meh. I should check and see if I've been charged already. If not, time to cancel and take my money to another indie bath shop (I just *know* Haus of Gloi is going to *wreck* me!).

Agreed. The box is more for trying out the new scents than anything else. A lot of the items are big enough for just a handful of uses, or one time use (like bath salts/bombs). The launch discount is usually a decent chunk off. I want to say 20% off, but I can't remember!

I really dislike smelling like food or fruit, otherwise, I'd totally jump on this box in a second.  A "fresh" or "clean" smelling box would be my fave!

Here's a review from someone who reviewed the fall summer box and is an international customer, she overall didn't seem it was worth the price of the shipping: http://workingwithmonolids.blogspot.com/2014/05/review-fortune-cookie-soap-soap-box.html

These scents are my cup of tea, but I know that they aren't for everyone. As long as you cancel before November 1, they will refund you if you have already been charged.

Another spoiler is up...it's the scene where he daydreams about the girl diving in the pool (the hint is a video, so not sure how to post that here).  Makes me think it's going to be a summer/tropical type smell which will just be kind of weird.  So far, I feel this box is looking a little disjointed for a winter themed box, but I hope it comes together in the end :)

That's what I was thinking too. 

I actually really like all of the scent descriptions we've seen so far, but they're just not what I think of when I think of a winter box. I wanted a box that smells like Christmas!

 

 

Not really box related, but I did end up ordering a few CYO perfume oils. All museum scents--some of my favorites that they discontinued & some I just really wanted to smell.

Me too. I'll stick with the box since I do like fruity scents sometimes, but I'll have to buy my winter-themed body products somewhere else, I suppose.

    • Dampen your hair then apply the filler for 20 min.(for using with dye) If using it as a conditioner, dilute it first and refrigerate. 
    • 1. I love falsies & prefer how i look w them on so I ended up getting lash extensions. My eyes look bigger & brighter w no makeup even & it helps me not feel like i HAVE to do my makeup before going out. When i do wear makeup (most of time) i don’t have to apply falsies so it saves time. Overall I just love how it looks!   2. Pretty much answered above. 3. I had a groupon for the place i go to & just loved them so I decided to continue going there + theyre not far & really nice! They do my lashes exactly how i like! Ive been to other places & they were good except never did what i wanted.
