Fortune Cookie Soap: Spring Soap Box 2015

Recommended Posts

Made my first order today so got a few things from different themes. Polyjuice perfume oil, Oogie Boogie soap and hand sanitizer as think my little girl will love the soap with the bugs in it! Plus a couple of smaller items from the Wonderland range as the shipping to the UK is a killer and will likely be charged duty as well.

 

Love the themes though and hoping the mermaid one for summer has some fab scents.

So how long does it normally take FCS to send out their orders? Mine is sitting as unfulfilled at the moment so assume they've not got round to packaging it up yet. Will give it another week and if no movement, might drop them an email. Don't mind waiting on an order as long as the company keeps me informed as to why its taking longer.

My last order took about a week before it was fulfilled.  Maybe 8 days?  I think it's because of the Wonderland items.  They may have had to make more.  I like that everything is done by hand and in small batches but it does add to the time before it ships.

 

My first order with Wonderland items shipped the next day but my second one took longer and that's my guess as to why.

 

And neither order had samples!  They've always sent samples before!

Yeah! Just had shipping notification for my first order - wonder how much duty I'll have to pay when it gets to the UK..(put in a second order in as they'd restock a lot more of the Wonderland products). Love quirky packaging so I'm hooked...

@@Alidolly mine all take 5-9 days . I've just put my uk group order in there are 20 of us this time and Rebecca and Natalie sort it . For next week We pay all and then split customs and postage between is . This spring order is small for me as floral spring box is also a bit miss for me but still spend $230 . Mostly my average is $360 - $480 . Simmer and winter boxes are always big orders for us uk girls .

 

You tend to get customs on fcs over £25 for sure . Very rare does it slip through . I've had about 4 personal orders customs free all others are hit.

Ah, that's what I thought...poop! Guess it'll be one order a season from now on then as hate paying customs. Feel we pay enough as it is with the damned shipping costs without getting the double whammy.

 

Much prefer companies where u can pay the customs up front as then there are no nasty surprises when the package arrives. Some sellers on Ebay do that and helps!

I placed my first order about a week ago for some items, it was a small order just to try things out,  just recieved it yesterday & very happy with everything.

 

Eat me FCS, my daughter tried to eat it lol. It smells like pineapples and cake. I love it, will be ordering this is foaming hand soap and OCD.

 

Almost Alice FCS I expected it to be fruity, but it's a soft clean floral scent to me, Plan to get this is in shampoo and conditioner.

 

Polyjuice OCD, very fruity and smells really good. The alchol scent fades quickly and then my hands smell like fruity goodness. I plan to order a bunch of OCD's in different scents. I have 5 children so these will be used often.

 

Lastly I got To Dye for bath bomb from easter collection. Smells like a sweet lemon. Reminds me of summer.

 

I am a bit bummed their was no sample included with my order, but I assumed it's because my order was so small.

 

I do have a few questions for you ladies. Can someone tell me how are the foaming soaps are the scents strong etc, & how long do collections stay on site before they are removed. Thanks.

I received both orders and there was no samples but did get an email about the points scheme so have $5 coupon for next order than I'll keep and add till I get $13 off as that's the next increment.

 

Was a bit surprised at the size of the products (very small) so not sure whether I'll keep sub going if the samples are smaller!

 

Do love the Oogie boogie soap though - smells ace (I like cinnamon!).

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
