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.

Fortune Cookie Soap “Witch, Please” August 2019 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box. We received the seasonal box (seasonal boxes ship in February, May, August, and November).
We also received this cute sticker!
Green Is the New Black Whipped Cream
The Aloe Me Whipped Cream is probably my favorite product that Fortune Cookie Soap makes, so I will never be mad about getting more lotion from this brand. This is scented with notes of orange, apple, pear, and pineapples with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. It has a fruity autumn scent that I enjoy, and provides great moisture to my skin without leaving it greasy.
Swankified Walnut Scrub
I have tried the FCS Walnut Scrub formula before, and I am a fan. It has a good grit without being too abrasive, and following this scrub with the included whipped cream is a real treat for my skin. It smells like banana bread, too!
The Shiz Perfume Oil
This box is big on sending perfume oils, so it is no surprise that this box included one. The scent is a blend of maple leaves, balsam wood, and sweet clove, and I enjoy the earthy notes of this compared to the usual sweet, fruity blends.
Flying Monkey Scent Diffuser
I don’t actually know how this scent diffuser works- I think the stopper inside is supposed to come out, but even with a lot of prying I cannot for the life of me get it out unless I want to destroy the plastic stopper completely. Do I want to do that? Is it supposed to be that difficult? I was able to smell a few drops in my fight to open this (a fight I lost), and I did enjoy the notes of fresh banana, watermelon, peach, and jasmine. This would be perfect to hang on the rearview mirror of my truck if I could actually figure out how it works.
There’s No Place Like Home Fortune Cookie Soap
Each seasonal box includes an actual fortune cookie soap, and this one has notes of apple peels, cinnamon, allspice, and clove. This is a cozy autumnal scent, and it bums me out that it’ll be at least another six weeks before Baton Rouge gets any type of weather that could even resemble fall.
BFF’s OCD Hand Sanitizer
This handy dandy hand sanitizer is scented with sweet blueberries, baked pumpkin, and warm spiced cake. I am always happy to receive this- I keep them in various purses that I use frequently, and that way I always have access to clean hands when I am out and about.
The Verdict: This month’s Fortune Cookie Soap box has me ready for fall, and I’m not mad about it (though I *do* wish the grocery stores would wait a bit longer before putting out the Halloween Candy). I appreciated the pairing of the walnut scrub and whipped cream in this month’s box, and I think I will love the scent diffuser once I actually figure it out. This witch theme was cute, and I am excited for September.
