Fortune Cookie Soap Fall 2016 Soap Box

The Fortune Cookie Soap Fall 2016 Soap Box takes on the ultimate fandom, Princess Bride! I’m not even going to get into the amount of times I’ve watched and rewatched and watched again the Princess Bride. I can recite every single line of that film and possibly play the part of Inigo Montoya.

This year we get to relive our love of the film and the characters with the Fortune Cookie Soap Fall 2016 Collection! On August 26th at 6PM CST you’ll be able to join Fortune Cookie Soap’s Fall launch party and purchase the As You Wish Collection.

Until that time, I have a little sneak peek of the Fall 2016 Soap Box. What’s a Soap Box? It’s a sampler box filled with 8 to 10 mini size bath and body goodies from limited edition seasonal collections that Fortune Cookie Soap launches. Each box is $19.99 (shipping included) and includes a selection of seasonal products as well as a $10 Gift Code that can be used on your next purchase at fortunecookiesoap.com. The Fall 2016 Box is shipping shortly but I get an early preview of it to share with you!

This is a pretty darn exciting box as it not only includes the normal round of Fortune Cookie Soap bath goodies but also includes some new skin care products like the soft, quick to absorb Knight Cream Facial Moisturizer as well as the brand new True Love Facial Cleansing Oil that has a pretty citrus and jasmine fragrance. Pour some in your hands, massage onto your skin, rinse, and Wesley may or may not be present when you open your eyes to grant your heart’s desires. At best your makeup will be removed so, don’t get your hopes up to high.

What else is in this box?

A sparkling little fortune cookie soap with Inigo Montoya’s sword embedded in. I did whip it out of the soap directly and pranced around the room with it shouting, “Hello my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!” But in doing so I got gold glitter everywhere. Be warned this little soap is partially covered in it. Did I mention it smells ridiculous good? Just like Fall! It’s a delicious, hearty honey apple mead scent.

Speaking of preparing to die, get those germs to die off your hands with OCD Hand Sanitizer in the scent, what else, Prepare to Die. Fresh baked cookies spiked with clove and saffron give off a yummy just baked Fall scent.

Now if nothing else, one of my favorite scenes in the movie features Wallace Shawn, as Vizzini, or better known as the guy that shouts INCONCEIVABLE! And what better way to celebrate Vizzini than with his own perfume oil! This complex blend of whipped vanilla cream has notes of woods, black amber, and pear! It quite smells like Universal Voodoo’s Sticky Fingers! It’s truly the quintessential warm autumn scent that reminds me of Halloween!

Vizzini ended up Mostly Dead well, all dead really, (so did Wesley for that matter! Oops spoilers!) and so does this Whipped Cream Body Butter! But I promise, it doesn’t smell dead. This quick absorbing whipped up body butter is as light as air and contains notes of golden honey drizzled over pumpkin and almonds with a flourish of warm amber. Yum!

And finally one of my favorite products, Steam Me Up Scotty in Pit of Despair because what’s a romantic adventure without a pit of despair! So, what’s Steam Me Up Scotty? A bath bomb for your shower! I love bath bombs as much as the next person but sometimes I don’t always have time to sink into my tub and relax. I can toss this little Steam Me Up Scotty into the back of my shower stall and as the water hits it, it fizzes up and released a lovely fragrance. This one is a blend of fresh cut lemongrass, plumeria, and a dark patchouli note.

Oh wait, this fairy tale isn’t over! I almost forget the lovely and most important Princess Buttercup! She has her own shampoo! With an enticing, warm blend of rum, fig, bergamot, vetiver, sandalwood, and delicious vanilla musk.

What do you think of the Fortune Cookie Fall 2016 Soap Box?

I’m eager to see more of this collection when it launches later next month!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’ve been subscribed to the Soap Boxes for a little over a year now, and I gotta say they’ve really been stepping it up lately! The boxes have been extra good lately and they’ve come out with lots of new product types. I also love that they are only quarterly, so you never feel overloaded or bored.

    OMG OMG OMG I’m like hyperventilating! This will be mine. You had me at inconceivable. And the mini sword. And saffron bc I’m just mad about it. But where is as you wish??

    • Isabella Muse

      haha 🙂 The entire collection is called as you wish so maybe that’s why they didn’t name a product that!

  • Gillie

    I can’t wait to get mine!! I am almost out of my shampoo bar, so I’m interested to try the Buttercup shampoo. These scents sound like they’re right up my alley.

    Excited to get my box this month. I love the Princess Bride!!!!!

  • Robin Burris

    I will order this box due to Princess Bride!!!! Love that movie. It’s just so fun!!
    I can’t believe the same guy that played Wesley was in the Saw movies. Just weird.

    • Isabella Muse

      haha! Yeah, older Cary Elwes was never appealing to me 🙂

  • Claire L

    Haha, looks a lot of fun and sounds like it smells yummy too!

    Got my box – love the scent on the face oil. It could be the perfume it smells so good. On the other hand, the Mostly Dead cream scent is nasty, can’t stand it. As a whole though an excellent box of goodies.
