Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box Subscription Launch!

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box

Guess what? Fortune Cookie Soap has a new quarterly subscription box program they are launching called The Soap Box.

I must confess, I have never taken part of any of the other subscription programs out there like Birch Box or the like, but this would be one I would be more likely to be interested in. I am a lot more picky about my makeup and nail product shades than yummy body and bath items!

The Soap Box will be offered four times a year, and each box will contain 7-8 brand new mini-sized products, two weeks before they are available online. You will also receive a $10.00 coupon (emailed to you) after you subscribe to the program. Also shipping is free!

The spring version will be available starting tomorrow, and only 100 are available. After that a wait-list will start. Your box will ship by the 10th of the month and should arrive 5-10 business days after it ships. You can cancel at any time.

So let’s unwrap this baby together shall we?

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box 2

It’s all wrapped nice and snug in layers of tissue with a sticker holding it all together.

Open the tissue up and you will find a information sheet letting you know what everything is inside.

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box 4

Here we have it! In this box there are eight items and a cute little flower.

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box 5

The products for the spring Soap Box include:

  • 2 oz packet of Milk Bath in Sweet Tart Martini scent
  • Mini-size Gelato Fizzy in Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
  • 2 oz packet of Bubbling Bath Crystals in Berried Treasure, a new fragrance
  • 1 oz OCD Hand Sanitizer in Justin’s HARD Lemonade
  • 1 full size Fortune Cookie Soap in Spring Break in Cancun scent
  • 1 oz Luxurious Body Wash in the new scent, Wake Me Up Before You Mango
  • 1 oz Whipped Cream in Hawaiian Ice
  • 1 oz Lotion in Granny Panties

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box 6

OCD Hand Sanitizer in Justin’s HARD Lemonade has a fantastic hardcore lemon scent. Not a synthetic or weird one, but really great and fresh. It contains tiny glitter particles which are left on your hands after you use it, but tend to fall off pretty quickly.

Wake Me Up Before You Mango Body Wash is a new scent for them. It’s super fruity and mango-esque. Yum.

Granny Panties Lotion may have a weird name but MAN it smells so freaking delicious! The scent is of Sweet Pea. And trust me when I say it doesn’t smell like old granny panties, haha! It’s nicely moisturizing, not greasy at all, and when I use it I am constantly sniffing my hands.

Fortune Cookie Soap The Soap Box 12

Bubbling Bath Crystals in Berried Treasure is also a new scent. These little crystals dissipate after adding the to water and create a light foaming action.

Sweet Tart Martini Milk Bath comes in a powder form and you only need a little added to a bath to make the water smell really great and your skin soft. The smell of this one is also one of my new favs, completely addicting. Smells just like Sweet Tart candies, and I nearly snorted some up sniffing the bag. Not kidding. ;)

Fortune Cookie Soap Whipped Cream Hawaiian Ice

Fortune Cookie Soap Whipped Cream Hawaiian Ice 2

Ok if you have read any of my Fortune Cookie Soap reviews in the past, you know their Whipped Creams are my favorite products from them. I think I have five or six of them now. They are so incredibly thick, luxurious and moisturizing. Hawaiian Ice is an amazing pineapple scent. It smells JUST like Hawaii to me. Dead on. I want to eat it, but the lid tells me not to.

Sidenote: I bought the In The Loop Whipped Cream recently and if you haven’t tried it, you MUST. It smells exactly like Fruit Loops. I don’t know how they get their scents so completely exact, but they do more than any company I have ever *smelled* before. :)

Fortune Cookie Soap Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Gelato Fizzy

Fortune Cookie Soap Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Gelato Fizzy 2

The Gelato Fizzy in Yellow Polka Dot Bikini is almost too cute to use. It looks like a little scoop of ice cream. Lemon ice cream with poppy seeds or something. The scent is a light lemon-bar one, really delicious once again. I have yet to use this little beauty and I almost can’t bear the thought of crumbling it up. But I must.

Fortune Cookie Soap Spring Break in Cancun

And finally we have a full size Fortune Cookie Soap in the scent Spring Break in Cancun, which is a fresh smelling scent. It’s light, not overpowering, and clean smelling.

Overall:

I think this is a great idea. I truly adore and use their products daily, and this is the kind of subscription I would be apt to purchase. For me makeup and nail subscription boxes are SO hit or miss. The colors could be something you would never wear, or you could wind up with a brand you don’t like (a non-cruelty-free brand maybe). For a bath and body junkie like myself, this is something I would be a lot more comfortable with. But if you don’t love (or are allergic to) fruity and various scents, I could see how this might not work for you.

Availability: You can find more information and/or place your order here starting March 1st.

Pricing: The pricing for every 3 months is: $19.99 (for US), $28.00 (for Canada) or $34.00 (Overseas).

Have you ever subscribed to any of the beauty boxes? What are your thoughts on something like this?

    I like this idea. I prolly wouldn’t be able to do it though because I have sensitive skin and wouldn’t want to try out so many new things.

    • February 29, 2012

      I can tell you that most of their products are totally okay for people with sensitive skin. There’s No parabens, No sodium lauryl sulfate, No synthetic preservatives!

  • February 29, 2012

    Everything looks good enough to eat (especially the Gelato Fizzy. I want a scoop of ice cream now)! I’ve never subscribed to any beauty boxes (don’t think there’s any available here in Belgium), but I’ve always thought it’s a bit of a risky idea. I prefer to purchase what I would really use than receiving a random bunch of stuff that I will probably not like. However, were it not for the fact that it becomes a bit expensive plus shipping (and if I use the gift code to purchase anything I’ll probably still have to pay shipping), I’d love to try! I’m pretty open to different scents and seldom allergic to skincare products (*knocks on wood*). Ahhh all the good stuff people get to enjoy in the US!!!

      Hi Sunny,

      I think a lot of them seem like a risky idea also. I won’t do any of the makeup or nail ones, I am WAY too picky and might wind up with duplicates also.

  • February 29, 2012

    This is a great idea! I am a bath and body product junkie so this would be perfect for me. Problem is I don’t have room for anything else in my bathroom! Cabinets, drawers, closets, you name it, are overflowing!

    This box looks amazing, but definitely geared toward someone who takes a lot of baths. For a shower girl like me, I’m afraid I wouldn’t use all of the products… It would be amazing if they had a bath option, a shower only option, and a mixed option… It looks like a decent way to sample their products, though.

    I’m sort of addicted to the monthly boxes, but I’m thinking of pairing it down. However, you should try Eco-Emi! Her monthly boxes are a mixture of beauty and “lifestyle” products (food, laundry products, etc), and they are all cruelty-free. Also, you get a TON of products each month — the value feels much higher than other monthly subscription boxes.

    I really disliked NewBeauty TestTube (and it was extremely hard to cancel my subscription). Most of their stuff is very wrinkle-focused, which granted I am already needing, but I still wasn’t happy with the selection. Also, the magazine they send seems to be very plastic surgery focused, and it really turned me off from the whole program.

    Birchbox is hit or miss for me… some months I love the selections; other months it seems pretty meh. I would still say the quality of the samples is rather high… but coupled with that, sometimes the prices of the full-size products are so high that it makes purchasing even products I fall in love with nearly impossible. Also, I don’t feel like Birchbox really listens to your beauty quiz preferences; I end up not receiving my most-requested type of sample (nail polish!!) on months that I know other people have received it, and they send me hair products from time to time that are clearly not meant for my hair type.

    I like the Julep boxes because I love nail polish, and it has been a great way to sample their line. However, their hand and body products have been hit or miss for me (but I do appreciate the chance to sample the full-size products). I’m trying to convince myself to give the Julep boxes a pause for a few months, but it’s hard to say no to nail polish…

      Hi An! Thank you for the response! I love your recommendations.

  • February 29, 2012

    Wow, only 100 boxes on launch day. Thank you so much for this post. I love body care and will totally subscribe! xoxo

    I’ve been receiving Birchbox for a few months now and I’ve enjoyed it! I like the surprise element, so much so that I won’t read online reviews for that month until I’ve opened mine. I’ve discovered at least one new favorite product (Orofluido) from them.

    I just subscribed to Eco-Emi but have not received a box yet. I love the idea of sampling “green” products, many of which I’m sure I wouldn’t come across otherwise.

    Everything in this box looks so awesome and cute! I totally agree that a bath and body box subscription seems less risky than a beauty box one, plus it’s a great concept. I’m totally excited to sign up for this! Thanks for sharing! :)

    Their stuff is super cute but I’m not sold on their soaps. They just don’t lather enough for me. With that said, I’m not sure I will try the whipped cream, just because I got turned off by the soap. I’ve heard so much good stuff about it so it’s tempting…

      Hi Ioana,

      I agree with you on the soaps, they are not my fav to use. I really like their other products more, and the Whipped Creams are FAB.

  • February 29, 2012

    I love yellow polka dot bikini, it is just so precious! I don’t think I could bear to use it either! Hawaiian ice and the cancun fortune cookie also sound like good finds :)

    I like the idea of signing up for a subscription service for beauty products and this idea for bath items. The things I don’t or can’t use, I put together mini gift bags and give them away to friends. Maybe, they may find a product they like in the process.

  • February 29, 2012

    OMG want and should not have! If I did not have an apocalypse defying (mild exageration) stash of lotions and soaps I would not be commenting on this post I’d be buying this box!

  • February 29, 2012

    It doesn’t smell like Granny Panties? So, then…what do Granny Panties smell like, Kelly??? ;P

    This is one subscription I would like to do. I don’t think I’m quick enough to get in on the first 100. Maybe when they open it up to more.

    Is this a good deal? I just did a quick calculation, and if you don’t factor in the price of the mini-gelato, all the items add up to around $17.68 (calculated for size of minis, too). I guess the shipping costs are also included, but I feel like the pricing should be better for the lack of choice in the order, ya know?

    I’ve been interested in Birchbox because usually it’s a pretty decent deal (you often get at least one full-sized or near full-sized product that retails for at least $10).

    If you were really into this brand, however, I think it’s pretty cool that they debut their newest scents and products this way.

    This looks fun – but I am soooo allergic to so much of this kind of stuff, I could never sign up. Also, I have a bevy of back ups to the back up products in this range and am always gifting them or just shoving them at others. I need to sell a ton of WEN & Philosophy on eBay now that it’s official about what I am allergic to and what I CAN and should stick with using. Have fun with this!

  • February 29, 2012

    This actually looks like a subscription that I would enjoy. All the rest of the beauty boxes haven’t been tempting, but this one is really tempting me.

    Man, I LOVE these sorts of things. My only problem, of course, is that I have an extremely sensitive nose and I’m afraid of not being able to use something. I’m not allergic, really, but I become sick around fake or chemical scents. If its a naturally scented item, I’m fine. (Whether or not I’ll like it is just a plain matter of taste.) It would completely depend on the company, I suppose. If these guys use natural scents and such, then I could do it, otherwise, it’ll give me headaches…

    i really like this idea! i’d totally sign up for it if it was priced closer to $10 or $15 per each 3 mo, not so sure I would for $20.

  • February 29, 2012

    Oh my gosh, that little scoop of ice cream is too adorable! And I love that you get a giant flower with your order.
