Summer 2014 FCS Soap Box

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! OJ_TBBB_05-14-2014_01 The Summer 2014 FCS Soap Box is a Candy Aisle theme inspired by the ever popular board game, Candyland.  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. OJ_TBBB_05-14-2014_02 What’s in the Summer 2014 box? ✻ “Lick Your Lips” Fortune Cookie Soap – Love their signature product!  This one is extra special to me since the scent is based off of mint chocolate chip ice cream, my personal favorite!  Smells so good I want to eat it! ✻  “The Sweet Spot” Sparkle Me – This body spray mist is packed with a light sparkle that leaves a subtle shimmer on your skin after applying.  The fruit punch scent is a combination of melon, strawberries, peaches, oranges, and pineapple.  Yum! ✻ “Rock Your Socks Off” Solid Sugar Scrub – I’m a big fan of the FCS sugar scrub that comes in a tub and now they have a solid version. I’m excited to try out this grape candy scented scrub! ✻ “Sweet Dreamsicle” Wax Tart – I often forget to pull out my wax warmer since I am such a fan of candles, but I always do whenever FCS sends out a wax tart in a soap box!  The combination of pineapple, orange, and vanilla cream is the perfect scent combination for summer. ✻ “Lemon Drop It Like It’s Hot” Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub – This is FCS’s newest skincare product!  I love trying out new face scrubs in my shower.  This one has a fine grit texture and a light lemon citrus scent. ✻ “Lollipop Your Cherry” OCS Hand Sanitizer – Cherries galore!  This hand sanitizer has a bright, fruity scent.  The OCD Hand Sanitizer is my favorite formula, hands down (and sanitized!). ✻ “Blow Me” Lip Scrub – Oh my, the name of this lip scrub made me blush!  It smells just like bubblegum. ✻ “Captain’s Berried Booty” Whipped Cream – Smells just like the berry flavor Captain Crunch cereal.  Yum!  The FCS whipped cream is one of my favorite formulas on the market.

  1. Just placed my first order to FCS. Based on your reviews, I am really looking forward to trying the hand sanitizers! Got a body butter as well. Thanks for sharing this brand. Can’t wait to try it!

  2. I am new to your blog but found you by chance and glad I did. I just love you, keep up the good work, I will look forward to your next video or blog post. ( I just love Winnie she is so cute)

  3. Wish I could afford to subscribe to this, it looks so adorable and fun! Thanks for th chance to win one, that is very generous of you as well as FCS!

  4. Off topic but your makeup looks amazing. Please do a video on how you do your eyes. I would love love to see it!

  5. Hi Jen 🙂

    Thank you for posting yet another happy video!

    This isn’t necessarily related with this video, but I wanted to share with you a few ways in which you’ve helped me along the years by being so genuine in your videos. About 2 years ago I discovered your videos and shortly after I went through a period of depression while realizing that many of my so-called friends were mainly acquaintances of opportunity.
    Your videos taught me how to appreciate and treasure the time I spend by myself, and more importantly, that it is more important to stay true to oneself than to change to accommodate other people’s opinions. I could actually go on and on about the ways in which you’ve helped improve my life 🙂

    I know that people can be mean, but please don’t ever stop sharing the sparkles of your life with us; you brighten more lives than you could ever imagine! 😀

    1. I love that I could play a part in helping to inspire you to stay true to yourself. Life’s too short to go around trying to please everyone at the expense of your own happiness when the reality is, the only person that can make anyone happy is themselves. There is a fine balance in serving others but also being true to yourself. Sounds like you’ve got it down!

  6. What a fun box ! I love the way you laugh and get excited over the boxes you open. The names of the items in this box is so funny. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Great video again. I love the new hauls you get and share. A lot I don’t hear about living in the country in a very small town and the big city is over an hour away so I don’t get too see much. You really give me an insight on what is out there and I make lists of what to look for when I do get to the bigger towns. Thanks for all you do. Your too cute on your flubs and I love that you don’t edit them out. Thanks for being you. Hugs.

  8. You are literally the reason I’m addicted to this company! Saw one of your videos and I’ve purchased not only the soap box- but I buy bi-weekly! ( yea say that 10 times fast! ) thank you so much for your review!

  9. I was just notified by FCS company that I won one of the boxes! Yay me! When I came here to thank you and saw my name posted. Thank you Jen, I am excited to try all the products.
