Fortune Cookie Soap Subscription Box Review – December 2020
The Fortune Cookie Soap Box is a monthly subscription that offers bath and body products centered on a new theme 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.
Every box comes packaged with a themed sticker that always makes me smile.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Fortune Cookie Soap “Into The Unknown” December 2020 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box.
FCS The Dark Sea Wax Tart
I don’t have a wax melter (although I keep all of my wax melts in case I remember to actually buy one), but I love the way this smells. The scent is described as fresh citrus and cantaloupe misted with sea salt air and magical waters, and the citrus and sea salt notes really make this more unique than your average fragrance.
FCS Connected by Love OCD Hand Sanitizer
Once Covid turned all of our worlds upside down, FCS went into overdrive producing hand sanitizer- I think one has been in every monthly box since April. This has a fragrance mix of plums, golden amber, and creamy musk, and I don’t think any of us will say no to more hand sanitizer in our lives. If you’re wondering why their hand sanitizer is named OCD, you can read more about it here.
FCS Flurrying Shimmer Gel
I would love to tell you more about this shimmer gel that is described as smelling like green apples and d’anjou pears (and warm hugs), however the lid on this tiny jar was screwed on so tight that I couldn’t get it off. “Well Jessica, ask your buff strong boyfriend to get it off,” you all must be thinking. I did. He couldn’t get it off either. C’est la vie.
FCS My True North Bath Bomb
I will happily take all of the bath bombs- even these cute little petite ones that would probably be better for a foot soak than a full bath. Look at that cute heart shape! This had a comforting scent blend of vanilla, warm milk, and sugar crystals mixed with oak-aged bourbon, and while I loved it in my bathwater I think it would be fantastic if this was made into a candle. I have no idea if that’s an option, but a girl can dream.
FCS I Am Found Whipped Cream
The whipped cream lotion formula from FCS is one of my favorites- it is creamy and moisturizing without being so heavy it’s greasy. This had a lighter scent of winter air, fluffy snow, sparkling ice, and white woofs, and I used this sample up quickly.
FCS Water Has Memory Dual-Phase Perfume
This perfume features and oil-in-water that makes it especially lovely to look at in the bottle. The scent is a mix of pineapple and spiced honey with pumpkin and peppermint, and it definitely gives off strong winter vibes without being overly gourmand.
The Verdict: I love me some Disney, so this Frozen-themed box was fun to experience. If I had one critique, it will be that I wish this had fewer tiny products and one full-size product that isn’t a perfume oil. Minis are cute, but sometimes I feel like I’m overrun with tiny packaged beauty products that have been used once and then only have a few more uses remaining. That being said, this box always nails it on the creative scents and packaging, and this really is a fun and affordable subscription box.
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!
Value Breakdown: This box costs $16.95 + free shipping, which means you are paying about $2.83 per item.
