I probably begin each and every Fortune Cookie Soap unboxing post by saying that this is my favorite quarterly subscription box and honestly it is my absolute favorite subscription box out there. Please note that I am not sponsored by them and these boxes are purchased by me so this is my honest and sincere opinion.

The theme this month is Welcome Santa. This box smelled so good when I opened it as it always does each time I get the box. As you will find it this box is based on the movie Elf which happens to be one of our favorite holiday movies.


The first item on the product card is Buddy- Fortune Cookie Soap


Nothing says Christmas quite like a 31 year old elf with daddy issues.

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!

This is one of six new Fortune Cookie Soaps the other soaps are Cotton Head Ninny Muggins, Yellow Snow, Shower Duet, FCS Cheer, and World’s Best Coffee.

As I was smelling it before I read the card, I was trying to place the scents and I couldn’t think of just one scent and all I can say is that it smells fresh and delicious. I can’t wait to start using this.

With every Fortune Cookie Soap you always get a fortune and that is what mine was.

All the  Fortune Cookie Soap is $3.99 (the ones listed above) apart from the  FCS Cheer which is $4.99


The next item is Swirly Twirly Gum Drops OCD Hand Sanitizer. It sells for $2.89 for a 1 ounce bottle

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.

This is one of eight new scents: Cotton Head Ninny Muggins, Yellow Snow, Shower Duet, Buddy, Christmas Gram, FCS Cheer, and World’s Best Coffee.

We go through a lot of hand sanitizers and I was almost ready for a new one so this has been put into my purse. This was another one that I had a hard time figuring out what the scents were. Its a nice fresh clean smell that isn’t overwhelming.


World’s Best Cup of Coffee Whipped Cream. The whipped creams come in two sizes 4 oz for $10.99 and 8 oz for $16.49. Sadly this particular scent is sold out.

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!

This is one of eight new scents: Cotton Head Ninny Muggins, Yellow Snow, Shower Duet, Buddy, Christmas Gram, FCS Cheer, and Swirly Twirly Gumdrops.

This is delicious in smell. It does smell like a coffee that I would love to drink. I love their whipped cream body butters. They are so hydrating and there is no greasiness and it absorbs into the skin.


The next item is Shower Duet Shave Oil. Sadly this is another item that is sold out. It sells for $10.99 and I am not sure what size the bottle comes in but I did see something about 2 ounce. I just got a little sample size.

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.

I love the smell of this when I tried it and I have to say that this smells like Christmas. The only thing is that since this is an oil you do have to rinse your razor a lot but I do have to say its so worth it. Normally this time of the year shaving my legs is a task because my skin is dry and itchy from the weather but since using the shave oil I have noticed the skin was hydrated and soft.


Since getting into the Fortune Cookie Soaps several years ago they were the ones to introduce me to the perfume oils. This one is FCS Cheer Perfume Oil. This is 5ml and it sells for $5.99

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.

This is one of  seven perfume oils that are in the new collection. They are Cotton Head Ninny Muggins, Yellow Snow, Shower Duet, Buddy, Christmas Gram, and Swirly Twirly Gumdrops.

I love that it somes in a little spray perfume bottle because its so much easier to use. A little goes along way with the perfume oils so I always try to use a few sprays and massage it into my skin. It doesn’t go on oily like you might think. I really like the scent and its not over powering but I thought that you could smell more of the patchouli then anything else.


The next item is Yellow Snow Bath Bomb. I couldn’t find this on the site so I am guessing that it might be sold out but upon further digging on the site I do see something called Yellow Snow Gelato Bath Bomb that has the same description as the product card. It sells for $5.99 for a 5.5oz ball.

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.

I used this right away and this was another item that I loved. I loved the smells of the caramel and vanilla jasmine. It was so relaxing.


The Christmas Gram Face Plant is another new item in the Fortune Cookie Soap line. They sell for $5.99 for 0.5oz each, set of 3.

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.

I recall using something like this years ago and loved it because it was a perfect way to clear out my sinuses to help me breath again and I found this did it for me. I used two at a time and I found that did the trick for me. I think this would be something I would consider purchasing since I noticed it did help with the conjestion.


Finally the last item is Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins Dry Shampoo. A 2 ounce jar sells for $12.99 and I only got a sample size to try out.

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.

I don’t use a lot of dry shampoo on a daily bases because with my hair being think, long and waxy and a little frizzy at times I tend to wash it daily but I will use dry shampoos is I have gotten a hair cut or style that I want it to look fresh the next day. I liked the scent of this and it made my hair feel clean and refreshed.

This is one of three scents that are available. The other two scents are Christmas Gram and Buddy.

This was another great box that I really loved. This is a box and subscription that I always use. Another great thing about the box is with each box you get a $10 gift card that you can use toward your next purchase online.
