Fortune Cookie Soaps Haul

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to share with you my latest order from Fortune Cookie Soap. They had a BOGO offer on all their lip balms and also a twitter deal for a free fortune cookie soap with any order. Needless to say, my will power cracked and I HAD to make another purchase. This will be my last until the summer soapbox comes out though. I had to make a promise to my wallet about that. ;)

I'll start this off with all of my products that I purchased in the scent "In the Loop". It smells EXACTLY like Fruit Loops. I went a little crazy for this when I smelled it in a sample whipped cream in my last order and instantly knew I NEEDED more of it in my life. The first thing I purchased was a small size of their hand sanitizer because I love to keep these little bottles all over the place and this one is going in my car/purse for when my hands feel gross. The next item was their "Pick 3!" which was on sale at the time. In it you get one bottle of lotion, body wash, and body spray. You are able to pick three different scents if you want, but I just made it easy for everyone and chose them to be all the same.
L to R: Shampoo bar and Conditioner bar

Next from In the Loop, I purchased a shampoo and conditioner bar. I am running low on the current set that I am using and wanted to stock up on replacements. These smell so great and the conditioner bar is HUGE compared to the one that I am using right now. I don't know why the size difference, but I am certainly not complaining. The only strange things is how every other product in this scent is purple colored, but the conditioner is more of an orange. Again, I don't care. I love these products and will never go back to bottled shampoos or conditioners.

L to R: Bergamot & Grapefruit and
Honey/Ginger
I also got another of the body sprays in the scent "Wake Me Up Before You Mango". This is my other all time favorite Fortune Cookie Soap scent. It reminds me of gummi bears and I love being able to spray these in my hair and smell awesome all day. :D

The lip balms were their BOGO offer for the week and I picked up one in Bergamot and Grapefruit (awesome scent!) and Honey and Ginger (Not my favorite, but will still use it). These glide on like butter and leave my lips so moisturized. I can't say enough about them really. I want to pick up some more in my next order for sure.

This product was supposed to be the Tiny Tribute conditioner bar, but I was accidentally sent the shampoo bar instead. I already have the shampoo bar, so I obviously didn't need another one. haha If there is one thing that Fortune Cookie Soaps does right though, (they do a lot more than that, I promise haha) it is their customer service. I literally sent one tweet to the OWNER of the company and got a response in less than five minutes that she would send out the right product the next day. I mean seriously, you can't beat that. And she is letting me keep this shampoo bar, so it's now going to be used as a homecoming gift for a friend that is in Spain right now. He's probably so sick of hearing me rave about this company, so I'm going to surprise him with this gem!

Next product that I picked up was the Gelato Sampler. Which was a four pack of mini bath bombs in four completely new scents. I LOVE this idea. It came wrapped in a cute polka dot ribbon and they look so cute in the box that I hate to use them. haha The only bad thing is the box leaves a powder residue when you move it around too much, but that's to be expected from the shipping journey they went through. Alright, onto the scents. The purple one is called "Let's Go Wine Tasting!" and smells just like a sweet berry wine. I really like this one. It is tart and sweet and a little bitter, just like a delicious wine. The yellow fizzy is called "PiƱata" and is supposed to smell like sweet and tangy soda pop. I like this one, but it's not my favorite. I don't drink soda at all, so the smell wouldn't be something I would gravitate towards. I will definitely still use it though. The pink one is called "Pink Tutu" and this one is my ABSOLUTE favorite out of the four. It smells like bubblegum, cotton candy, and bananas. I generally don't care for banana smells, but this one is just subtle enough for me. It is delicious and I want to eat it! haha Last, but not least, is the green one with is called "Summer Romance" this is a sweet apple hawaiian punch scent and smells awesome. Sweet and perfect. Can't wait to use it.


The last few items are the freebies that I received with my order. The fortune cookie soap that I received was in the scent "Rain Showers". And it is an amazingly clean scent, but also a bit sweet. If that makes sense. I love it! It's not something I would have ever picked for myself, but am so happy I got it for free in my order.
In your orders, you can also ask for a sample of a product you are curious about. At the time that I ordered, they had a bath melt called "Easter Bunny" which was supposed to smell like carrot cake and banana. I was so interested in that scent and the bath melts themselves, so I asked for a small sample of them. Well little did I know, the Easter Bunny was VERY limited edition. So unfortunately, they didn't have samples to give out. But in true fashion with their amazing customer service, the owner Shannon mixed up the scent into a giant sample of their body butter. I was so excited to see that in there! And not only that, she included some of their bath melts in "Coal Hearted" from the Hunger Games collection. I love both of these. I really hope they bring back the Easter Bunny scent because it is DELICIOUS!!

Alright guys, that's the end of my order. Hope you liked it and if you are interested in ordering anything for your self just click here for the Fortune Cookie Soaps website! I honestly have never had such great service from a company. They are amazing people and I'm so glad I found their products. :D

See you soon!
