Fortune Cookie Soap “You Were Born to Sparkle” January 2019 Review
The new subscription model includes a small info sheet detailing the products included. No prices were given for the items listed.
We also received a sticker.
Always Sparkle Enzyme Face Mask, Full-Size!
This face mask is made with fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate your skin, and I am loving that the first ingredient on this mask is soothing aloe to try and prevent irritation. This has mica in it for a very subtle sparkle that is apparent in bright light when you wear it, which is really fun. While I am not stoked that alcohol is listed in the ingredients list, it is near the bottom (so it isn’t a main ingredient), and the rest of the ingredients are otherwise stellar so it shouldn’t cause issues the way alcohol will if it is a more prominent ingredient. This mask has a subtle scent of sparkling champagne and fresh honey crisp apples, and it was enjoyable.
Shine Bright Shimmer Lip Balm – Estimated Value $3.49 (based on other lip balms available here)
This is a sheer lip balm that was hydrating, and even though shimmer is in the name I didn’t really notice any shimmer on my lips. The flavor was tropical prickly pear and coconut (delicious!), and this is a great lip balm when you’re rocking a more natural look.
Dim All The Lights Mini Headache Oil, 0.5 oz
I have been dealing with migraines more frequently than normal over the past few months, so finding this headache oil was a delightful surprise. This is an FCS signature essential oil blend, but it definitely has calming and soothing lavender if those lavender buds in the bottle are any indication! This small size is perfect for throwing in my purse, and I think it would actually fit in the change pocket on my wallet so I can have this with me wherever I am- we all know that headaches never come when you’re at home and can dim the lights and cuddle with an ice pack and your cat.
Afterparty Walnut Body Scrub, 1 oz
This walnut body scrub is the perfect size to let you fall in love with it and want more- the ground walnut shells aren’t too abrasive while still being effective, and it smells delicious thanks to the golden amber, maple, and tonka (side note: what is tonka?). Plus, this has a really lovely texture.
The Verdict: I loved my first box of the new subscription model from FCS! The affordable price + free shipping make this more available to people who want to try it, and I think it is fun to get a full-size item plus other goodies. Each month you get a $10 off $25 purchase discount code, and I think I may use that to grab the full-size of that body scrub.
