Bath on a Budget

Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2015 Wonderland Soap Box Review

Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2015 Wonderland Soap Box

I got the recent Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2015 Wonderland Soap Box which is a bath and body box that’s themed after Alice in Wonderland. If you haven’t signed up for Fortune Cookie Soap’s Seasonal Soap Boxes you really should!

Each box is $19.99 (shipping included) and includes 8 to 10 mini samples if upcoming Fortune Cookie Soap limited edition seasonal products. Also included is a $10 gift code which can be used on Fortune Cookie Soap’s to purchase anything you want! So really you’re only paying $10 for the Soap Box!

The boxes are subscription based and come out quarterly. The fun part about the subscription is that each box has a great theme. For Spring it’s Wonderland but there’s been collections and boxes themed around The Grinch, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc…! And of course, seasonal collections like Halloween, Christmas, and Easter!

Let’s see what’s in the Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2015 Wonderland Soap Box!


The Innovative Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion

I’ve been using the innovative Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion ($7.99) for the last week and a half and it is life changing. I should start off by saying I’m so terrible about applying body lotion after I shower. I’m one of those dry and dash girls so I’m always half way damp when I’m sliding into my clothes. I dislike the feeling of applying body lotion on wet skin so typically I reserve applying it until the evening. I also don’t like how some body creams make me feel sticky or tacky.

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion saves me a step by giving me a way to apply my body lotion IN THE SHOWER!

Cool right?

In Love with The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly

Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly

I always get “Ewww you take baths?” from many friends and even readers on here. For whatever reason people don’t think a bath gets you very clean, I’m inclined to agree. I never feel like I can wash my hair quite right in a bath! That’s what showers are for!

Baths though, baths are MADE for relaxing. I do indeed take and enjoy baths but typically they aren’t to get clean it’s more of a relaxation treat for me. I take them when I have a bad migraine as the warm water really helps to ease a migraine, I take them on a cold Winter’s night to warm up, and I like taking them after work to just ease the stress of the day away.

To get clean? Not so much! To relax? Hells yes.

That’s why products like The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly is totally a treat for my relaxing Holiday baths because lord knows after a busy, stressful day of shopping you need a bath to just soak away the woe of spending all that money on gifts for the fam and friends on your list ha….

And I’m positive The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly takes a note from dear Aunt Bethany’s Jello Mold…

Take a look!
