This box was provided complimentary for review.
What is it? Fortune Cookie Soap Box
How much? $19.99 per quarter, plus $8 shipping to Canada (US$)
What's in it? 8 mini size bath & body products from an upcoming collection. Ships 4 times per year.

Fortune Cookie Soap is a company that produces handcrafted bath and body products. FCS has a major product launch four times per year, so each season FCS puts together a limited edition box containing 8 mini-size products from the upcoming collection. The Soap Box ships approximately two weeks prior to the launch, giving subscribers an opportunity to try out the new fragrances and formulas, before committing to full size versions. The box also includes a $10 gift code, which can be used on the FCS website to purchase your favourite items.

The theme for winter 2015 is "Welcome Santa" and is a collection of products based on "our love of all things sugar". All of the products in this box are inspired by Buddy from the holiday film Elf.

The sample box includes eight products from the Welcome Santa line. The full line includes dozens of holiday inspired products. Check it out here.

World's Best Cup of Coffee Whipped Cream Body Butter
You did it! Congratulations! You now smell like the World's Best Cup of Coffee! Great job, everybody!
Vermont maple syrup, with just the right amount of fresh brewed coffee -- gotta get in all those food groups!

Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Dry Shampoo
Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins?? There's gotta be a funny joke in there somewhere... A refreshi-floral (it's a word - trust us!) blend, that bursts with lilies, freesia, jasmine, and bayberry, muddled with fresh blackberries and plums, garnished with a sprig of peppermint.

Swirly Twirly Gumdrops OCD Hand Sanitizer
Sticky and sweet, this gum drop scent will stay with you through all of your holiday swirling and twirling. A sweet and whimsical blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, and fresh pear nectar, dancing with tart cranberries and black currants.

Yellow Snow Bath Bomb
9 out 10 customers prefer it to smelling like "Beef and Cheese" ... but there's always one in every family. A juicy blend of ripe plums, whipped caramel, vanilla jasmine, and exotic woods, with just a squeeze of zesty Mandarin oranges. Soothing and revitalizing in one drop.

Christmas Gram Face Plant Toner Tablets
Watch out -- our new scent might just have you singing "I LOVE YOU!" to virtual strangers at the office Christmas Party. Warm steamy air, fresh with lavender and sea salt spray, mingle with the woody earthiness of sage and dark vanilla.

FCS Cheer Perfume Oil
The best way to spend Christmas well is wearing this for all to smell. Rich, buttery vanilla pound cake, over dark frankincense, patchouli, and cedar, create a scent that's as warm and inviting as Christmas itself.

Shower Duet Shave Oil 
Our brand new shave oil all but melts the snow off your chimney, ensuring Santa a clean landing. Spruce and vanilla, fir and fruits, hyacinth and mint; we've created a shave oil that will warm up your coldest winter nights. All natural shave oil, prevents nicks, cuts and razor burn.


Buddy Fortune Cookie Soap
With notes of holiday fruits, candy, crushed vanilla, and a hint of mint, this scent will have you feeling just as happy as everyone's favorite elf!

The Winter 2015 Fortune Cookie Soap Box, themed Welcome Santa, included eight sample products from the Buddy Elf line. The smells coming from this box were so scrumptious! I like the whipped body butter and hand sanitizer the best.

If handmade bath and body products interest you, it’s a great way to sample different FCS products. You also get a $10 off coupon code to use towards the purchase of full sized products. I'd recommend this box for a teen or tween due to the whimsical themes and product branding. One concern would be for those with allergies or sensitive skin. While the website lists ingredients for each product, most of the sample sizes did not include an ingredients list and some of the online descriptions are vague.
The Spring 2016 edition of the Fortune Cookie Soap Box ships around February. If you are interested, be sure to sign up soon! If any of these Winter themed products interest you, check out the Fortune Cookie Soap website. The full size versions are available for purchase now. Click here to see the full Welcome Santa line.

  1. Looks like some relaxing items in here.

  2. I have been eyeing this box but with shipping and the exchange rate, it is just way too expensive for sample size products.
