Through the Wardrobe with the Fortune Cookie Soap!

Through The Wardrobe Fortune Cookie Soap 2016 Winter Soap BoxPurchased by me 

The holiday season is finally here, which means winter isn’t far behind. To get us in the spirit, Fortune Cookie Soap has released their 2016 Winter Box, $19.99/quarter.

This season’s box is filled with bath and body products centered around the theme, Through the Wardrobe. This homage to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is filled with lots of Aslan approved goodies. If you’re a fan of the book or the movie, you’ll probably recognize many of the product references. If like me, it’s been some time since you’ve read the book or seen the movie, you’ll still appreciate the charming names and delicious scents.

  Soap & Hand Sanitizer

 Fortune Cookie Soap Winter Collection Soap and OCD Hand Sanitizer

Two of my favorite staples in the FCS Soap Box are the Fortune Cookie Soap and  OCD Hand Sanitizer. The “Always Winter” OCD Hand Sanitizer is all a glitter with notes of evergreen, cinnamon, cranberries, apple, and cedar wood. I love the crispness of the scent. It really does embody a winter’s day.

While I’m not sure what, “Wake up, Dolly Daydream!” means, I’m still a fan of the Sweeties Fortune Cookie Soap. It smells exactly like Turkish Delight thanks to notes of rosewater, toasted pistachios, amaretto, and warm, buttery cookies. The beautiful red color makes me smile each time I wash my hands.

Whipped Soap and Cream

 Fortune Cookie Soap Winter Collection Whipped Soap and Body Cream

There’s no Hide and Seek needed when it comes to the Whipped Soap. With notes of dark chocolate covered espresso beans, allspice, and coconut cream, you’ll want to stay in the shower all day long. Well maybe not all day, especially since Father Christmas is waiting for you. This whipped cream personifies winter and the holidays perfectly thanks to a combination of blue juniper brush, frosty snow, and vanilla cupcakes.

Just make sure to remember which is which, or you’ll end up wondering why your loofah isn’t layering up. Yep, this happened to me. I took a shower with the whipped cream and not the whipped soap.

 Dusting Powder and Perfume Oil

Fortune Cookie Soap Winter Collection Dusting Powder and Perfume

I never know what new treasures will await me in my FCS Box. It’s precisely why it’s one of my favorite subscription services. This time I was greeted by Dream of a Dream Dusting Powder. This unique new product is made from essential oils, microfine powders, and clays. Not only does the mix of lavender, vanilla, soft musk, and patchouli smell amazing, but the powder also makes my skin feel extremely soft.

Another amazing treasure in this season’s box is the Lion’s Breath perfume oil. One can only hope that a lion’s breath would smell of winter frost, fir needles, and pomegranates. I don’t know how FCS did it, but they managed to make a perfume that is both sweet and musky. I know I’ll be wearing this all winter long.

 Shampoo Bar and Pedi-Bomb

 Fortune Cookie Soap Winter Collection Bar Shampoo and Pedibomb

The winter box marks the second or third time I’ve tried a shampoo bar and pedi-bomb from FCS. Of the two, the Small Favors pedi-bomb is probably my favorite. I thoroughly enjoyed soaking my feet in the relaxing fizz of warm honey, tobacco pipe, and spiced citrus slices. I also quite enjoyed the awakening suds of the Deep Magic shampoo bar with its blend of rosemary, herbs, and mint.

Bottom line: While I’m not quite ready to embrace winter, I am ready to embrace another divine Fortune Cookie Soap Box. While the winter box is sold out, sign-up for the 2017 Spring Box is available, and all the goodies from the Through the Wardrobe collection are on sale on If you’re looking for some unique gifts this holiday season, consider checking out the very affordable options from Fortune Cookie Soap.
