FCS Winter Has Come Haul
If you're a Game of Thrones fan and need something to hold you over until April, Fortune Cookie Soap has a fix for you.
Thursday February 5 2015
Last year my boyfriend introduced me to Game of Thrones and I was instantly hooked. I binge watched all the seasons and got caught up with the rest of the world. Now I’m patiently waiting for Jon Snow to return to my screen and in the meantime I’ll think about him while bathing….
But get your mind out of the gutter. I’m here to talk about bath & body products. I didn’t want to do a full review on everything since I haven’t used it all yet, so I figured I’d do a haul/first impressions post.
You Know Nothing Bath Powder looks like snow and smells of “warm bonfires at dusk, wind-blown leaves, charred pine and cedar accented with roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, and a hint of fresh earth.” The fragrance reminds me of Christmas, but I think that’s because it’s heavier on the pine. This product costs $10.99.
While I’m no fan of Jaime Lannister, this $7.99 soap is freakin’ awesome! Kingslayer looks like an icy gold crown covered in blood. The scent is described as “a spicy blend of cinnamon and clove with warm bayberry, pine, sweet citrus and a touch of fresh green grass. I think it smells mostly of clove and citrus. It’s definitely a unique scent, but I like it.
Fortune Cookie Soap’s Whipped Cream body butters are amazing. They’re thick, moisturizing, and not greasy. Perfect for my dry dragon-like scaly winter skin. Mother of Dragons costs $12.99 and smells of “creamy french vanilla soy milk, sweet florals, and a nutty almond base.” This isn’t my favorite scent of the collection because it’s more floral than vanilla. Florals just aren’t my thing, but luckily it’s a light scent so I’ll just lather this on my legs after showers.
I was in need of a lip scrub to exfoliate before lipsticks so I purchased White Walker. It’s a minty, blue scrub that gets the job done. It’s $8.99 which is sort of pricey but a little goes a long way so this should last me awhile.
Solid shampoos and conditioners may seem strange, but I actually love them! (I already have Cotton Candy ones from FCS.) I was intrigued to see this Take the Black combo bar. The website says it is “scented with a blend of leather and amber as dead-sexy as Jon Snow himself.” Unfortunately, I’m a woman and this smells too manly. I’ll probably give this to my son or boyfriend so the $9.99 wasn’t wasted.
If you have a bathtub and are on a budget, I suggest getting this product for $5.99. Unless you aren’t caught up on GoT… *SPOILER ALERT.* Joffrey Dies at the End bath truffle is my favorite scent of my entire order! It smells like “a decadent buttery pastry filled with rich peppermint infused strawberries and dolloped with a touch of freshly whipped cream.” Yummy! Plus, who didn’t do a happy dance when Joffrey finally died!
If I haven’t mentioned a product inspired by your favorite GoT character, never fear. I didn’t buy the entire collection (I do have some self control.) Buy these products or check out the other available bath goodies here.
