Fortune Cookie Soap June 2019 box

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.

Stay Golden Glowtion Aloe Me Whipped Cream – Full-Size! Retail Value $15.99

This shimmery aloe me whipped cream arrived at the perfect time- I was just thinking that I hoped we received a full-size from FCS soon because it is one of my absolute favorite body lotions. This combines a light lotion with aloe vera, and we have the added bonus of shimmer. This isn’t too noticeable once it is massaged into my legs, and the scent is a tasty blend of coconut water, lemon zest, and beach roses with seagrass. To quote the FCS team, “shell yeah.”

Fortune Cookie Soap June 2019 scrub. 2

Sandy Toes & Sunkissed Nose Sea Salt Body Scrub – Buy the full-size version for $16.99

This scrub is made with dead sea salt, sweet almond seed oil, and mango butter to help you exfoliate without being too abrasive. The scent is a blend of sweet orange blossom, driftwood, ocean vibes, and kumquat, and I like the bright notes of citrus.

Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat SPF 15 Sunscreen Stick – Buy the full-size version for $8.95

This SPF smells nice with a mix of cantaloupe, lychee, wild sugar cane, and vanilla orchid, but the formula was pretty crumbly and a bit difficult to use. This small size means it would take a lot of elbow grease to apply it to a large area, and the fact that you only get SPF 15 protection makes the product one that I personally won’t use.

Marine Mood Sea Salt Hair Spritz – Buy the full-size version for $9.99

Sea salt sprays are not something I put in my hair willingly, but I did really love the scent of mango nectar, beach lilies, sea salt, and lime. I’ll be passing this along to a less curly friend, and I do appreciate the creativity in sending a sea salt spray (I believe this is my first one from FCS) even if it doesn’t personally work for me.

The Verdict: This box was a fun one! I enjoyed the summer theme, and while some of the products were personal misses overall I thought the curation was spot on. The cost of the glowtion alone is worth almost the cost of the entire box, and I am excited that it was the full-size item in this month’s box.

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

    Should say if you’re off the waitlist by August 10th September will be your first box.

  2. The sunscreen stick was a little surprising with only 15 spf- who uses only 15 these days? But I have bern using it for xtra protection. I have thin hair and have been loving the salt spray as a styling option. And then there is the whipped cream. Heavenly. Love fcs.

  3. I thought that sunscreen stick was a lip balm! In any case I could only see myself using it on my face and the back of my hands and feet

  4. As someone who has curly hair also, I sometimes use sea salt hair spritz/spray at the roots to get some extra lift at my hair’s crown area. Just two or three sprays is enough and I was happy that this spritz did the job without adding any product built-up or dullness!

  5. Oh, I really would have liked this box! I don’t follow the spoilers, etc. This is perfect for the start of summer.

  6. Any idea how long it usually takes to get off the waitlist for this sub? When I signed up, it said I was #45 on the waitlist. LOL. Seems like a lot.

    • It’s usually under a month now, they give 24 hours notice and if the people in front of you to subscribe. If they don’t the list keeps moving. The August box was billed in July so if you get off the list before August 10th, September will be your first box.

      I know it says you can get August above but since it’s all made for the boxes it’s billed a month in advance.

    • Are you still on the waiting list? I signed up today and I’m number 83 lol

      • I was on the waitlist for my mom (I have an active subscription) I received the email to get off about a month later.
