Fortune Cookie Soap “I’m Gonna Wreck It” Review
This box comes with a mini handbook detailing the products, their prices, how to use it, the unique scent, and ingredients. One thing of note: I have purchased from the Fortune Cookie Soap website several times, and all of the listed prices match up with what I have seen available for sale once the collection becomes available.
The Glitch Cuticle Butter, 0.5 oz – Listed Value $9.99
I am pretty rough on my nails and hands, so I am always happy to add a new cuticle butter to the mix. I found this to be very hydrating, but because of that, it needed about 30 seconds or so to absorb. Once it had sunk in I was left with soft and moisturized fingers, and a little bit of this goes a long way so I am stocked up for a while to come. This had a sweet scent of pink sugar with plumeria and candy orange slices, and it really made my fingers smell like I just finished eating candy.
Stay Sweet Milk Shake Bath Milk, 4 oz – Listed Value $8.99
This bath milk really smelled like a sweet milkshake thanks to notes of strawberries and tart citrus lollipops, and it is made with cocoa and shea butters to hydrate your skin while you soak. I have had some seriously dry legs lately, and this bath milk really helped to hydrate my skin while I was recovering from abdominal surgery (aka, unable to bend over and lotion my own calves).
Bad-Anon Hydrate Me, 3oz – Listed Value $10.99
This is my first experience with the hydrate me stick from Fortune Cookie Soap, but I believe they come out during the cooler months. I was a little confused with the application—it states to rub the conditioning bar all over under running warm water and then massage in, but not to rinse. How do I apply this under running water without it being rinsed away? While I figure out how best to use this hydrating stick of coconut oil and shea butter, I am able to at least enjoy the pleasant scent of wild berries and cream with a touch of cedarwood.
I’m Bad And That’s Good Perfume Oil, 1 oz – Listed Value $16
This perfume oil has notes of pomegranate and whipped caramel marshmallow, and I was pleasantly surprised that the scent isn’t as sweet as the description sounds. Overall, the scent is well-balanced with the caramel being the main scent without being overly sweet.
Regenerate Body Wash, 2.1 oz – Listed Value $4.99
This is your basic body wash – nothing too fancy but it gets the job done. I do like the light electric blue color of the body wash, and it left my skin lightly scented with notes of buttermint and caramel.
Sugar Rush Solid Sugar Scrub, 2 oz – Listed Value $12.99
This container has balls of solid sugar scrubs that look like oversized gumdrops! They are scented with raspberry, lemonade, and bubblegum, and it is a sweet and fun way to exfoliate without drying out your skin.
Lala Laffy Taffy Laundry Detergent – Listed Value $9.99
This is a brand new Fortune Cookie Soap product, and I am always excited to see new-to-me products in the monthly box, let alone new-to-the-world! This is made with sodium borate, sodium coco-sulfate, sodium carbonate, and fragrance, and the info sheet says this is eco-friendly. I would use this for a light load, but not for my heavy duty clothes washing load. I like the light scent of orange cream salt water taffy, but the scent isn’t too noticeable once your clothes are done washing.
The Verdict: Fortune Cookie Soap Box is one of my favorite boxes to receive every month. I love the attention to detail in every aspect of the box, from the product descriptions and the designs of the products to the scents of the products themselves. I had seen Wreck it Ralph only once before, and I think I was able to follow along with the scent names pretty well, which is always nice in themed boxes. This month did have some overwhelming sweet scents—while they smelled nice, I am ready for more fall and winter scents!
