Fortune Cookie soap is now offering an monthly subscription box. For $28.00 plus the $6.95 shipping charge you can have a box shipped right to your front door. Each box will have a different theme, this box was the shower box. All items in the box will be full sized, which right there makes the value of the box worth so much. Each box promises that there will be one new item that has never been on the site before. The boxes also will have a mix of old and new scents. Each month you can log into your account by the 10th, to see the theme of the next months box. It can be a little confusing when you log in for the first time so let me see if I can break it down for you all. May box had to be skipped by the 10th of April or you will be charged for May. Why is it one month in advance you say, that is so Fortune cookie soap knows how many boxes to make. You also will get to know the theme for the next month by the 10th to help you decide if you want it shipped or skipped. If that is to confusing let me post what Fortune cookie soap says about the boxes on there website.

Now that we have gone through all the information let’s dive into the products for this month. I will do my best to link as many of the products as I can, but some have not been placed on the sight yet.
The First item was the box is the Eat Me shower oil. This shower oil is meant to be sprayed on damp skin after your shower. A little warning this is oil so it can make the bathroom floor slick. The scent is described as Scrumptious yellow cake with a fresh slathering of rich, creamy vanilla frosting, topped with fresh white pineapple slices and garnished with a sprig of blooming cilantro. I smell a whole lot of the vanilla and a dash of pineapple. This is a very foodie scent, but if you do not like food scents this may not be for you. Word to the wise a little goes a long way with this product.
The next item in the box is Don’t be jelly in the scent Don’t drink me. Don’t be jelly is an jelly soap that you only need a little bit of. To use this item simply pitch off a bit and use as you would soap. The way I like to use it is to take that pinch and put it into a loofah. The scent is described as Top fragrance notes include tart cranberries, strawberries, citrus zest and a splash of white grapefruit & blueberry. Bottom notes include vanilla sugar, whipped cream, warm amber and red berries. This is such an complex scent, but I really love it.
The next item was an Body Wash infused sponge in the scent pool party. This is a new item for the box and man I am in love. This will be the perfect item to bring on our vacation to Disney World this summer. The scent is described as the perfect combination of sweet sugarcane and cool mint. I can smell the mint, but it is a very sweet smelling mint which is very nice. It says you can get 10 plus washes with this and make sure you hang this to dry when done.
The next item was Poisonous Fog Shower steamers. Again I am going to let FCS tell you about this product and how to use it. Soooo, what exactly is a “Steam Me Up Scotty!” and how do you use it? Basically, it’s a heavily scented fizzy designed for an aromatherapy type shower experience. You choose your mood. Directions : For maximum results take a hot , steamy shower. Simply unwrap & toss the shower fizzy on the floor to the back of your shower, out of the stream of water. You want it to slowly fizz during your shower, rather than quickly run down your drain. It’s like your personal little aromatherapy room, the steamier the better! The scent is described as A poisonous, curling vapor of dusky breezes, with just a whisper of wind-blown leaves, heliotrope, woods of cedar and sandalwood, dark musk creeping with just a hint of roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, coconut and soft vanilla. This a VERY strong smell, I smell a lot of herbs for some reason in it. Not sweet at all.
The next item in the box was Honey Dew Me shave oil. Oh my goodness I just found a new holy grail item! Anyone reading this needs to go to Fortune cookie soap and buy one of these. I believe it has drops of magic in it. I am one of those shavers who it never fails cuts her leg. After using this product no nicks or cuts! My husband even used it to shave and enjoyed it. The website says this about the product. Apply a few drops to skin and massage in, allowing skin and hair to soften. Shave as usual! Please note: You will need to rinse your razor more than you’re used to…but it’s sooooo worth it! No moisturizer needed after use! 🙂

This scent is so amazing. It is described as This fragrance will leave you screaming for more… melons, that is! We just can’t get enough of this yummy blend of sweet honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon, apple and vanilla bean. You can smell the honeydew so strongly.
The next item was a solid sugar scrub in the scent Tink. I have to say that solid sugar scrubs are amazing.They are simple to use, but be careful as if you do not step out of the stream of water the scrub will all go down the drain. The scent tink has to be one of my all time favorite scents. The scent is Fresh cherries in cream, sprinkled with toasted coconut and a fairy dusting of powder sugar. You can smell the cherries and coconut in this so much. It is yummy yummy yummy.
The last item in the box was a deep conditioner in Bravery. If you are looking for a natural deep conditioner this should be your go to. To use: Liberally work through clean, wet hair and allow 3-5 minutes before rinsing. Our deep conditioner treatment works like a hair mask. Use 1-2 times a week My hair is thick and long, but all I needed was a quarter size for my whole head. The scent Bravery is fresh juicy nectarine gets natural accents of leafy greens. It is a very light scent, but very nice.
The fortune cookie soap box contained a total of 7 full sizes items for 34.95 shipped. This is an outstanding value as every item is full size. It makes each item in this box roughly $5.00 each. If you are a fan of bath and body products and are looking for something extra each month I would highly suggest getting this box.
