Fortune Cookie Soap: Winter Soap Box 2014

Recommended Posts

I tried to read the first one and only got a chapter in before I gave up. I just can't. 

 

That being said, I LOVE floral/fruity scents and could not resist a few things :)

Nahhh, too much floral-based scents for my liking. I'm saving my $$$ for the GOT collection!!

 

Have they said anything about it yet, other than the shampoo/conditioner bar combo thing? I saw some people on FB today discussing how it was a very 'woodsy' collection, but I don't actually see that anywhere! 

 

Admittedly have not watched GoT yet, but I have a feeling I'll be order a few things from that collection too. 

 

And ohhhhhhhhh my poor wallet when the Spring collection comes out. Everything Alice!

I believe the shampoo/conditioner combo bar will be in the GOT collection. :) And I think people are assuming it will be woodsy because GOT is kind of a outdoorsy kind of TV show, if that makes any sense. (think LOTR scenery)

So glad to know I'm not the only one who just couldn't read 50 shades!  I tried, I got about a chapter in, and just no......

 

Nothing for me from the Valentine collection.  I did buy a couple of the Hair Flip WC's the other day.  They're still 50% off and I know it's a scent my mom would love so I grabbed one for each of us.  Also got a The Shiz Steam me up Scotty.  I'm super excited for the spring stuff.

HAHA. I started 50 shades and was like "wow, this is TERRIBLE" and then finishing it, and the whole series, became a challenge to myself. And I did it and I can assure you that the books only get worse as they progress. Good lord. These books are only selling because the target demographic hasn't realized that you can read much better written smut that doesn't romanticize abusive relationships on the dang internet for free! lol

Soooo what are we all buying from the Winter Has Come collection? :)

 

My list is:

Mother of Dragons Whipped Cream 
The Imp Mist Me? 
Hodor Hodor Hodor Shower Steamers
No Middle Ground Hydrate Me 
 
And possibly the Unsullied Shower Oil. Kind of wondering how heavy the patchouli is going to be!
 
ETA: Just saw a comment that says patchouli isn't strong in any of the scents, so shower oil is happening!

Just a few notes for anyone who isn't in the FB group:

There is a discount for buying the full set within the first 12 hours.  $142.86.

There is also a bonus item if you buy the full set that will NOT be for sale individually: The "Brienne of Tarth" based item... a shield-shaped fizzy called "Oathkeeper."

There is no discount for individual items.

Sigh. I am getting the whole set. It's way more than I wanted to spend, so I'm going to sell off whatever I don't like. I am glad the full set is available for a certain amount of time, and is not limited by a certain number of them. Good for people in different time zones.

I had to cross off all the bath stuff since baths just aren't for me. (which is a shame because the bath powder scent description was probably my favorite!) 

 

My list: 

 

The Imp Mist Me

Take the Black Shampoo/Conditioner Bar

Iron Islands OCD Hand Sanitizer

No Middle Ground Hydrate Me

 

And I'm on the fence about getting the shower oil and the sugar scrub. XD

I am going for the set.   I know the perfume I won't use due to its rose scent, but I really think that is the best deal for me.

So I used my bath bomb from the Winter Collection (Bend over and I'll show you, I think was the scent) and good golly...what a mess! It smelled glorious and was really moisturizing, but it was very green and left green glittery sludge all over me and the tub. Yuck! 

 

Regarding GoT...I broke my no buy and purchased:

 

What Happens Behind the Wall, Stays Behind the Wall Solid Bubble Bath

White Walker Lip Scrub

No Middle Ground Hydrate Me

Keep it in The Family Perfume Oil - 1 Dram

Joffrey Dies At the End Bath Truffle

Needle Sugar Scrub

I had a bunch of reward points, so I did get the set at 10% off + converted reward points into a coupon.  Plus I got a ton of points from this purchase :)

 

I just loved all of the scents except keep it in the family (due to the rose, I am sure it is  lovely...but cannot do rose)

I love the GoT collection, so sad it was released at such a time - 1 a.m. in my time zone, everything I wanted was sold out before I got up :(

 

On the other hand, I checked the shipping costs later and it's over $16 for one mist (Imp Mist Me was what I wanted most)! So with the exchange rate atm I won't probably be getting it even if it restocks. Really sad to miss out on this collection completely but I just don't see how I can justify the cost  :unsure:

Scratch all of that, haha. By the time I got out of work, almost everything had sold out so... I threw caution to the wind and just bought the entire collection. XD

 

I also grabbed some of the stuff from the Christmas line since it's all still 50% off, plus the OCD hand sanitizer from the vday collection as they did a full restock of that line! :)

Last night I tried the Valyrian Steel body wash, and I'm in love!! The smell is so nice. It's also a good uni-sex body wash. The Iron Islands hand sanitizer also smells REALLY good. Bergamot is in both products, so maybe that's what I'm obsessing over? I really wish these products weren't sold out because I would load up on this stuff!!

 

I also tried the White Walker lip scrub, which was nice and clean and minty fresh.

 

Overall, I'm very pleased with this collection!

Omg this. So this. I tried to get into it. It literally read like something a 13 year old girl would post on a backstreet boys fanfic site circa 1998. So. Freaking. Atrocious. If you're bored, look up videos of people reading it in the voice of Cookie Monster on YouTube. It's hilarious.

 

On topic: I used the last of my sparky whipped cream last night and I am sad about it.

I missed this post earlier! About the fanfic thing: It is literally _Twilight_ fanfic. Seriously. I think the original title when it was still about that bullshit was _Master of the Universe_.

    • Hello,    I am working with beauteque to curate a bag - and one of the items I want it in is being discontinued, but has a shelf life of a year.  Would that still be of interest to you if you liked the product?  or should I go with something completely different?   thanks iosman
    • Hi Romy, I am so sorry that nobody replied to you. I understand your frustration and I really wish you further soonest recovery. Do you have Bitcoin or other crypto? Or maybe plan to trade some soon? The thing is that there is a cool place where you can gamble for BTC like in an normal casino. I guess you should click and give it a go.
