Fortune Cookie Soap “The Enchanted Wood” March 2021 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month's box.
Every box comes packaged with a themed sticker that always makes me smile.
FCS Looking for Sunshine Honey & Bee Pollen Night Cream
If this subscription has ever sent me a night cream before, I can’t remember. While I like the idea, I really think that Fortune Cookie Soap should have included a separate insert listing the ingredients of this moisturizer, especially because the info sheet has a disclaimer about not using this cream if you’re allergic to bee stings. The ingredients are listed on the top of the lid, but since this is a small jar the writing is absolutely microscopic. There isn’t an online listing for this available yet (the full-size will be available for sale on March 26, meaning I would have to wait 11 days to see the full ingredients list since my box was delivered on March 15th). Because of all of this, I stuck with trying this moisturizer out on my arm instead of my face. The key scent notes were woodsy lavender and a touch of lemon, and there is a bit of honey to round things out. The texture is lightweight and absorbed quickly into my skin -- this scent in a full-size body cream would actually be really fantastic, but I don’t love it in my moisturizer.
Friends Forever Perfume Oil
This is the only product not scented with honey -- instead, there are notes of apples, ripe pears, wildflowers, and blond woods. I love this fragrance on me -- it’s fruity without being overly sweet and balanced by the floral notes, and it smells a touch similar to a more expensive perfume I already own. I don’t usually love the perfume oils sent in this box because they appear so frequently, but this one is a winner.
Hunny Pot Bath & Shower Gel
How cute is this mini bear packaging? I love that attention to detail. This shower gel has scent notes of citrus, apricot, and honey, and my nose was able to pick up on all of those things. This fragrance was really nice -- I’m contemplating picking up the full-size bottle when the collection launches later this month. If I do, I’ll use my $10 off $35 coupon you get every month via email with your subscription.
I’m The Only One Lip Scrub
This was a great lip scrub -- the texture had grit from the sugar and enough of a binder that it was easy to scoop up and spread on my lips. The taste of honey and fresh tea (I only taste the honey) is really enjoyable, and my lips were much smoother after one use.
The Verdict: Even though I had a bit of a rant about the moisturizer, I still really enjoyed this box. All of the scents were spectacular -- so much so I want to purchase full-size products when the collection launches later this month, even though I have so many open body products already. This is one of my favorite under-$20 subscription boxes I have reviewed, and if you’re a fan of small-batch body care and skincare products I really recommend it.
