Fortune Cookie Soap “Wonderland” Box Review – February 2019
The Fortune Cookie Soap Box is a monthly subscription that offers bath and body products centered on a new theme each month. Each month FCS will create new products to fit that theme, and then will offer up the extended collection for sale later in the month.
FYI- Fortune Cookie Soap recently changed their subscription model. Read more about it here.
This month’s theme was “Wonderland.” It is Alice in Wonderland themed!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Fortune Cookie Soap “Wonderland” February 2019 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box. This month we received the seasonal box (Seasonal boxes ship in February, May, August, and November).
It’s Only a Dream Cuticle Butter, 1 oz – Retail Value $12.99
This is the same size as the size listed for sale on the website, but this didn’t come in a nice glass jar. The same amount of product, though! This is super nourishing to my dry cuticles, but I had to be careful with the amount I applied otherwise my hands were left greasy. The scent is described as calming verbena, lemongrass, calla lily, and citrus blended with leafy greens, ylang-ylang, rosewood, and ozone. What does ozone smell like, you ask? I couldn’t tell you, as this really just smelled floral with a touch of citrus.
Who Are You? Charcoal Face Mask – Retail Value $15.99 (currently out of stock)
I wasn’t excited that this jar didn’t come with the ingredients listed- and it took until the second restock of the Wonderland collection for this mask to get posted and me to be able to see it. This has kaolin clay and activated charcoal, and no ingredient stood out to me as particularly bad, but my skin did tingle when I was wearing which is a sign that my skin doesn’t like it. The scent is described as a ripe pear with tart limes, vanilla orchid, and raw cane sugar. This didn’t really have a strong fragrance, which I consider to be a good thing.
Eat Me Deep Conditioner, 1 oz – Buy the full-size version for $12.99
I love the deep conditioners from FCS- I use them as a regular conditioner on the ends of my curls, and my hair is always nourished after using. It is a bit thick, so I recommend warming it up between your hands before distributing it through your hair, and if you have fine hair this would probably be a true deep conditioning treatment for you. The scent is scrumptious yellow cake with a fresh slathering of creamy frosting, topped with pineapple, and garnished with cilantro. It sounds like a slightly strange cake, but this does smell good enough to eat.
We’re All Mad Here Perfume Oil – Buy the full-size version for $7.99
My biggest complaint about the number of perfume oils sent with this subscription box is not the quality- they always smell great. I just wish we could get a perfume spray a time or two! This is a blend of playful mint waters and natural leafy greens with rich cedarwood. It could be described as a unisex fragrance, and I love reaching for it.
Almost Alice Fortune Cookie Soap – Retail Value $4.25
Fortune Cookie Soap truly makes some beautiful soap- there is no denying that! This has notes of fresh green snap peas and juicy pear with sweet pea flowers, freesia, and ripe berries. The fruity, floral concoction is sweet and refreshing.
Futterwacken Liquid Shampoo, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.26 (buy the 9.5 oz version for $11.99)
This shampoo is sulfate-free, so cheers to that! I still found it a bit too stripping for my dry curls, but I enjoyed the scent of sun-warmed lilies, grapefruit, and “a breath of purified air free from the Evil spread by the Queen of Hearts.”
The Verdict: It can be a bit confusing with the new FCS subscription options, but I really enjoyed this mini collection dedicated to Alice in Wonderland! I thought all of the smells were lovely and perfect for the Spring months ahead, and a good collection of products were included. Honestly, my biggest complaints are nitpicky- I wish we could receive more perfume sprays, and I wish any skincare item had the full list of ingredients included for me to review with ease.
