Fortune Cookie Soap Of the Month - May 2017 (Foot Box)


What is Fortune Cookie Soap's FCS of the Month Box?: Fortune Cookie Soap of the Month is Fortune Cookie Soap's monthly box to get your monthly fix of FCS products. It launched at the beginning of the year and has had some amazing themes so far. Each month's box has a different theme (hair, body, face, feet, etc.) and will have a mix of past, present, and new scents/products along with at least one brand new product. You can skip any months you want to so it's the perfect subscription if you want specific items or only want a few boxes a year.

How Much is Fortune Cookie Soap's FCS of the Month Box?: FCS of the Month is $28.00 plus shipping ($6.95 for the US). Use code 'Firstfcsbox' to save $6.95 off of your first box.



Some hard truth time, I meant to cancel this box initially because I hate feet and don't do pedicures/feet things in general. Forgot to skip, not angry.



The Foot Box...not necessarily what I would have named it. Maybe the hand and foot box (although that makes me think of hand, foot, and mouth)...maybe foot box was the right name.


Pedi Bomb (Aqua Scum) ($4.79) - Mine actually look more like stars than actual starfish, and bluer than what's in the stock photo. I don't do bath/mani/pedi bombs typically so I did pass this along to a family friend that LOVES this type of product!

Solid Foot Scrub (Toes in the Sand) ($12.99) - This is like a softer (and better smelling) version of a pumice stone. As a kid, I was fascinated by those and used them all the time. I did keep this and use it (I hate feet but I also don't like how dry my feet get and how the skin gets hard and flakey) and it smells really nice! If you check out the link, you'll see it's a cute foot-shape. No actual product picture because it flaked off a bit and I don't like making messes. D:


Nail Polish (Hang Ten) ($12.99) - To be frank, I don't know if I'd pay $13 for a polish that's 10.5 ml when you can get so many different polish brands that offer bigger polishes for a lower price. This is a pretty crelly (although I'm not a fan of scented polishes) that I'll be doing a full review on later on. 

Cuticle Butter (Summer Boardwalk) ($8.95) - I might be drowning in cuticle butters/oils/etc but I always seem to use them up and need more, so this was a welcome addition! The scent is yummy (marshmallows with blueberries) and it feels moisturizing without being overly greasy. 

Reflexology Massage Oil (Woody) ($13.99) - The Woody scent is one of my favorites, it's rich woods and vanilla, so I'm always pleased to get something in that scent. Because I don't do feet, I don't get foot massages, but I do like the idea of using a massage oil elsewhere!


Deodorizing Foot Mist (Wipe-Out) ($8.99) - Eh, no. I don't typically get stinky feet and the same goes for husband, so this is a complete miss for me. It didn't smell particularly bad or good but doesn't have a use in this house, so it was passed along.

Foot Lotion (Refresh-Mint) ($10.99) - Again, I don't use a lot of foot products but this is a pretty good smelling and pretty moisturizing lotion, so it's still pretty handy to have around! It does tingle a bit, but it just reminds me of the Christingle Body Conditioner by Lush.


This box was valued at $63.79, a very good value for the cost! I liked that we got the first look of their nail polish line in this box but I missed a bit of the cohesion with the various products. Again, this was more of a hand and foot box, which isn't necessarily a bad thing! I just would have missed out on this box had I remembered to skip when I thought this was just a foot box!

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
