Fortune Cookie Soap “Hello Summer” June 2019 Review
Here is the info sheet for the items sent this month.
We also received a sticker!
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.”
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.
