We also received a sticker!

Fortune Cookie Soap March 2019 - Dreamer Shimmer Perfume Oil Front Fortune Cookie Soap March 2019 - Dreamer Shimmer Perfume Oil Back

Dreamer Shimmer Perfume Oil – Buy the full-size version for $8.99

This perfume oil is full of magic thanks to its added shimmer and the scent blend of jasmine petals, golden amber, and a touch of strawberry. I love reaching for jasmine when I am feeling extra feminine, and this a perfect perfume for that.

Always Believe Body Frosting – Buy the full-size version for $12.99

Body frostings from FCS are their most hydrating lotion, and I am here for it. As the days get warmer I am using this little jar on rougher skin like my elbows and knees, and I am enjoying the scent blend of peony, blackcurrant, and sparkling champagne.

Fairytales and Make Believe Shimmer Body Wash, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.37 (buy the 9.5 oz version for $12.99)

I will never say no to shimmer, so this body wash has my name written all over it. The scent is a blend of green apple, pear blossoms, and sugar crystals, and I love the sweet, fruity aroma. The shimmer is nice, but when I wash it off, I don’t sparkle- which is important considering I am about to graduate from law school and enter the world of lawyering!

Fortune Cookie Soap March 2019 - Wish Upon A Star Charcoal Whipped Soap Front Fortune Cookie Soap March 2019 - Wish Upon A Star Charcoal Whipped Soap Container Open Top

Wish Upon A Star Charcoal Whipped Soap – Full-Size! Retail Value $15.99

If you haven’t tried whipped soap, you’re not living your best shower life. I love them because they are moisturizing and easier to use than a typical bar of soap, and they’re also a lot more fun. This whipped soap, in particular, is made with activated charcoal (along with avocado oil!) and the scent is a blend of cashmere and sweet vanilla cream.

The Verdict: I enjoyed this month- the scents were fun and the products were useful. I appreciate that the full-size whipped soap retails for a dollar less than the cost of the entire box, so you do feel like you’re getting a good value. Each month you get a $10 off $25 purchase discount code, and if I had to choose I would probably try a different product in the Fairytales and Make Believe scent.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you still sign up today? No. If you sign up today your first box will be the May box.

From Fortune Cookie Soap:

The next month’s category will be revealed on the 10th of each month. If you don’t fancy it, simply log into your FCS account and skip it. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $16.95 + free shipping, which means you are paying $4.24 per item.

  1. I am so in love with that whipped soap but I noticed after using the top inch, its lost its fragrance. Is anyone else having the same issue?

    • I noticed this with their Hydrate Me’s, though my whipped soap seems to be going strong still.

  2. Congratulations Jessica on your graduation. Wishing you all the best lawyering. Hope you still have time for your great reviews, especially anything to do with bath products.

  3. So what’s up with “Script Soap”? Are they changing their name? Right now, that url just redirects to the FCS homepage.

  4. I personally think the world would be a better place with more “Sparkling ” lawyers! Great review, thanms2.

  5. What a great box! Love the theme and variety of products. Awesome review!

  6. I really enjoyed march’s box. I actually ordered more of the whipped soap because my hubby likes it. I also got the shaving butter in dreamer (and a couple other things lol) I end up buying stuff every month. Ah well I use it all up too! Which is impressive for me because I tend to get bored quickly.

  7. Congratulations, Jessica! Very excited for you on your upcoming graduation from law school. Well done!

    • Thank you so much, JC!
