I am often asked what my favorite of all my subscription boxes is, and if I had to pick just one it would be the FCS Soap Box. If you’re not familiar, FCS stands for Fortune Cookie Soap, which is a husband and wife run handmade soap and body products company. The FCS Soap Box is a quarterly subscription service that includes sample sizes of upcoming seasonal releases and it is Fun, Fun, Fun! If you love trying new and unique bath and body products then this box is for you!
The Spring 2014 FCS Soap Box is a Garden of Good vs. Garden of Evil theme. FCS always has the funniest and most creative product names and descriptions (I share these in the video below if you’re curious). It is always fun to see what goodies are included in the quarterly box.
What’s in the Spring 2014 box?
✻ Native Nectar Body Wash – Smells like coconut water, not too pungent. I like their body wash formula. It has nice foam without leaving a residue on your skin.
✻ Afternoon Delight OCD Hand Sanitizer – Described as a combination of watermelon, apricots, and white florals. Smells light and springy on the hands. The OCD Hand Sanitizer is my favorite formula, hands down (and sanitized!).
✻ Marshmallow Dreams Cuticle Butter – An interesting scent combination of marshmallow fluff, lavender, sage, basil, and vodka. Never thought to put those together! I mostly pick up the marshmallow. My first impressions are that the formula feels a bit greasy at first touch but seeps into the skin quickly after applying without living a residue and seems quite moisturizing. Excited to see how I like this after using it for awhile!
✻ Make It Rain Whipped Cream – The fresh scents of citrus and jasmine are darkened with musk and cedarwood to create a very appealing cologne scent. The FCS whipped cream is one of my favorite formulas on the market (Do you see a theme here? Lot of favorite formulas).
✻ Forbidden Fruit Fortune Cookie Soap – Love their signature product! This one combines verbena and lemon, a common pair, with the added twist of blueberry. Smells as good as it looks!
✻ Me So Thorny Steam Me Up Scotty! – My least favorite FCS product I’ve ever tried, the Steam Me Ups are basically bath fizzies for your shower. I don’t really get it, to be honest, but maybe I’m not using it right(?). This one smells heavily of patchouli, which I really like, with notes of citrus, lavender, vanilla, and sandalwood mixed in.
✻ The Bloom Bloom Room Bath Fizzy – The beautiful floral scents of jasmine, lilac and lily of the valley combined with fruity peach and citrus for a classic bright spring scent. Perfect size for smaller tubs or to travel with!
✻ Venus Fly Trap Perfume Oil – I’m terrible at describing perfume scents, so I will just list the ones described on the FCS card and let you imagine what they smell like together: bergamot, narcaisse (Is this a typo? I stumbled over this word in the video because I was unsure of it. Did they mean narcissi?), musk, water orchid, lemon, and jasmine.
