Fortune Cookie Soap Box: Fall 2015

Hey friends!

You know what would be helpful? If I would post a review in a timely manner! I’m still getting used to my new work schedule, which involves waking up at 5am and a 45 minute commute, (not complaining, because it’s seriously a dream job and totally worth it), and it’s taking some adjustment.

Anyways, sob stories aside, I have my review of the Fortune Cookie Fall Soap Box up because the Fall Launch  Party is like right now! At 6pm CST! So I want you to be ready for the products, which should be available after the Launch Party! Or not because this post was so late! AH!

Check it out!

And review time!

Dressed to Kill- Fortune Cookie Soap- Dribbles of mulled, red wine, swirled with dark, rich vanilla and cut apples and a dusting of spice.

This is a simple, but pretty fortune cookie soap in a glittery yellow. I think it smells like soft, clean fall. Very subtle, but nice.

Glitz and Glamour OCD Hand Sanitizer- Wet moss, polished woods, and creamy vanilla.

The OCD hand sanitizers are fun and smell pretty awesome, be warned this one has glitter in it. I actually like the smell of this, it reminds me of the woods in fall. Not what you would expect for a hand sanitizer scent, but delightful anyway.

Tommy Guns and Baseball Bats- Whipped Cream-Grandma’s hot apple pie, dusted with freshly shaved cinnamon, nutmeg, and warm brown sugar, topped with rich, creamy, marshmallow fluff.

The Whipped Cream scents are very love or hate for me. Unfortunately, this one wasn’t a hit for me. It smells wayyyy to marshmallow sweet for me, (which if you’re a fan of Haus of Gloi’s Ghost Puffs, this may be perfect for you), and for some reason it almost smelled like Root Beer to me. Maybe it was the creamy part? Anyway the texture on these is great, very creamy and smooth and they dry quickly. I’ll pass this on to a loving home! (Seriously, I’ll probably be the only person in the WORLD who doesn’t like this scent.)

Scandal- Bath Powder (not pictured because I got excited and used it before photographing it. WHOOPS.) Creaking woods, wind blown leaves, and twisted rose thorns.

If you’ve been around my blog for awhile, you may know that I do love me a bath. I was quite pumped when I saw bath powder included in this box. I still haven’t figure out exactly what bath powder does, (I think it is supposed to make your skin feel smooth), but I still like any excuse for a bath. This smelled clean and fresh, like a nice cool day. It was pretty subtle, but refreshing for a bath.

Pearls and Girls-Perfume Oil- Crushed and distilled vanilla creeping with wild jasmine and a splash of juicy pear.IMG_7046

I love the vial this is in, it’s such a great little spray bottle that seems sturdy enough to live in my purse, (which is a death trap for most cosmetics). The perfume itself has very good throw on me and lasted several hours. It smells just like vanilla and pears, it’s a pretty simple scent, but not bad. Just nothing too exciting.

Hollywood Dreams- Shampoo Bar– Brown sugar dusted with graham crackers, fresh churned apple butter, sprinkled with nuts and a hint of maple.

I’ve never used a shampoo bar before, so let’s assume that I used it right. Which-who knows? But I can at least tell you this smells exactly like the most delicious fall dessert you’ve ever smelled. It’s so sugary sweet, with warm brown sugar and maple notes. I reallllly want this scent in everything.

American Royalty Pomade- Rose milk, thick honey, and warming tobacco blossom wrapped with caramel and notes of mandarin

american royalty pomadeI actually really like this pomade, it’s good for texturing hair. It also has the added bonus of smelling kind of line Tobacco and vanilla. It’s going to take my whole life to get through one tiny jar of this, though. I don’t use much pomade.

Famous- Wax Tart (unpictured because I used it up before taking a picture.) Warm amber, wild orchid, fluttering white cotton, and sundried herbs

I fell down the wax tart rabbit hole with Sugar and Spite’s Wax tarts, and they remain my favorite. The star shape of this tart was adorable, but I found the tart itself to be kinda melty. I tried not to touch it with my hands too much because glitter rubbed off on me. It melted nicely in my warmer though and smelled clean and fresh. I definitely got the scent of clean linens from this tart, which I think is a great smell for a house. (Especially mine, which I feel like it eternally dirty.)

Overall:

Fall Fortune cookie Soap Box

Lopsided, but it was the only way I could get the powder to stand up!

As always, the OCD and Whipped Cream products are my favorite, although the Whipped Cream scent wasn’t the biggest hit with me.  Hollywood Dreams is by far my favorite scent and I want to buy EVERYTHING in it from the Fall Launch. The other scents were nice and sophisticated, and they seemed to mostly be very subtle, subdued fall scents. I personally prefer big, loud “IT IS FALL” in your face type of scents. Pumpkin, cinnamon, crunchy leaves for days, please. Hence, my desire to buy everything in Hollywood Dreams.

That’s it for today! Happy Hour this week will be another Sunday Funday!

Love,

Rebs!

Questions of the Day:

One thought on “Fortune Cookie Soap Box: Fall 2015

  1. Thanks for this review! I waffled on getting the FCS box but ultimately didn’t but I’m pretty sure that I need whipped cream in a couple of these scents. And I may need to stock up on OCDs too. Basically give me all the fall things!
