So, my nails are in terrible (and I mean terrible) condition. I think between the stress of the move and the physical labor my nails are paying the price. I've had several breaks, peeling, hang nails, and dry cracking skin. So, I will be giving my nails a few weeks to recoup. In the mean time I will be doing some non-polish related posts. This first one is my first time trying Fortune Cookie Soap. I've seen rave reviews about this company and since finding out that Bath & Body Works is no longer cruelty free this is the perfect time to try them out.
Poisonous Fog got my attention right away; it sounds sinister but the scent profile sounded divine.
A poisonous, curling vapor of dusky breezes, with just a whisper of wind-blown leaves, heliotrope, woods of cedar and sandalwood, dark musk creeping with just a hint of roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, coconut and soft vanilla. Be careful, this scent gets deep under your skin...
To me it smells like a Winter Wonderland. I smell the woods and outdoors with a hint of perfumed snow. For me its perfect for this time of year between autumn and winter. The moment I opened the white paper envelope the scent hit me in the face; it is definitly heavily scented. You get 3 per pack.
The one I opened was crumbled so I left it in the foil. The texture is just like a bath fizzy.
Since my shower is smaller than most I set my fizzy on the back ledge of my shower/bath tub. This may have been a mistake because I didn't get what I expected out of it. Here's what I did:
I started my shower and had it turned to the hottest setting.
I set my fizzy on the back ledge and let my shower get nice and steamy for 5 minutes. (Yes, I know, I wasted water...)
The scent was practically non-existent during the first half of my shower. Half-way through my shower the scent increased a little but not by much. I leaned over the top of the fizzy and accidentally dribbled some water on it and it began to fiz. It kicked up the scent then.
I then turned the temp down to warm and got in the shower.
I think if a little more water had gotten to it I would have had a better result.
Next time I am going to put it on the floor of the shower/tub; I think you need the warm water to make it fiz and release more scent.
While it didnt turn out as great as I thought it would, I think there was some operator error. I still have the entire shower fizzy to use again. The scent is absolutely amazing.
I just realized they have Wax Tarts so I need to buy some of those for sure!
