Fortune Cookie Soap “Happy Holla Days” December 2019 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box.
Merry & Bright Shimmer Lip Scrub, 0.75 oz – Retail Value $10.99
This is one of my most favorite products from FCS in a while. I have been needing a new lip scrub (and by that I mean one I actually enjoyed using rather than random samples), and this is a more wet scrub that did a great job of exfoliating my lips without being too rough and while also being a bit hydrating. A little goes a long way (I used way too much the first time), and it tastes like espresso!
Let It Shine Lip Plumping Oil – Retail Value $9.99
I never use lip plumpers because 9.5 times out of 10 they either burn too badly or cause me to get a pimple right along my lip line. For the sake of review I gave this a try anyway, and it wasn’t terrible! While it definitely had the plumping tingle thanks to the cinnamon and peppermint oils, it wasn’t so intense that I had to rub it off. So far so good in terms of it not causing any new pimples to form. This is one lip plumper I actually see myself using again.
& To All A Good Night Jelly Sleep Mask, 2 oz – Retail Value $16.99
I really do love this brand, but I don’t like their face products. Every mask I can remember trying from them has had alcohol near the top of the ingredients list, and I really just don’t think added fragrance is necessary in skincare. That holds true for this mask, which has alcohol as the second ingredient is scented with pineapple, passion fruit, and pink guava. Honestly, when I applied it all I could think about was hand sanitizer and how it smells like perfumed alcohol. This mask isn’t for me, but your mileage may vary.
Fa La La La La Scent Diffuser – Retail Value $12.99
I think I own five of these scent diffusers now due to how often they have appeared in recent boxes, and I think this is my favorite scent yet with notes of fresh pine needles and warm vanilla.
The Verdict: Fortune Cookie Soap really ended 2019 with a bang by sending us four full-size products! My favorites by far are the two lip items, and I thought this box had a fun take on holiday curation and design. Value-wise, everything in this box adds up to $50.96
