Fortune Cookie Soap “Cereal Killer” September 2020 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box.
Dead And Breakfast Body Milk, 2 oz
I am always down for a lightweight body lotion because that means less time I have to spend rubbing it in – sometimes I really just can’t be bothered. This has notes of fruit loops “drowning in coconut milk” and it smells as good as you think it would. Plus, the milky texture sank into my post-shower skin fast and left me ready to get back to my favorite activity, doing absolutely nothing.
Hellraisin Bran Deep Conditioner, 2.1 oz – Estimated Value $12.99 (based on the deep conditioner available in a different scent here)
Oh boy, was I stoked when I pulled this out. I love the deep conditioner from Fortune Cookie Soap and have re-purchased multiples from FCS over the years, so getting this full-size in the monthly box made this an automatic win. If you’ve never used it before this is definitely a heavier deep conditioner, but after a few minutes of soaking in my strands, it’s much easier to comb through any tangles my curls have gotten themselves into. Plus, the smell of rum raisins, caramel cream, and maple syrup is a tasty combination that smelled even better once the heat from the shower water warmed up the scent.
Cookies & Scream Foaming Sugar Scrub, 1 oz
I’m a fan of sugar scrubs, especially on the parts of my body that are touched by other humans. Since the size is small I used this on my legs and upper thighs, and I enjoyed the way the scrub got sudsy when mixed with a little warm water. The scrub itself was more mild than harsh, which was exactly what I needed. The smell of chocolate, marshmallow, and pound cake didn’t really give me cookies and cream vibes, but it did leave my skin softer and smelling like a snack so I’m not mad.
Psych-O’s Wax Tart
I use candles way more than I do wax melts, but this adorable spoon fits the theme of this month’s box so perfectly I have the strong urge to melt it just to finish the “Cereal Killer” experience. Plus, I definitely wouldn’t mind having my kitchen (where I usually use wax melts because I don’t have a wax burner) smell like green apple, nutmeg, and brown sugar.
The Verdict: I have been reviewing Fortune Cookie Soap for years and I think this is one of the best monthly boxes I’ve received from them. From the curation to the packaging, to the scents and the names of the products, this really was a well-thought-out home run. Plus, did I mention I love that deep conditioner? FCS killed it with this one – and has anyone else started playing “Among Us?” I’ve become obsessed, and this packaging really makes me think of the fun mafia-style game.
To Wrap Up:
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!
