TGIF, dear readers! I am SO glad it is Friday! Can it be afternoon with my husband home now? I've not slept enough this week, and I am exhausted. My boys just don't appreciate a good nap, and I would love for them to nap at the same time so I could too! I can dream, right? Ha!
For today's blog post, I wanted to share the Fortune Cookie Soap (FCS) Zombie Survival Kit I received earlier this month. This was a Limited Edition box that is sadly no longer available for purchase, BUT many of the individual products from the box ARE available.
I have a weakness for all things Halloween so naturally I had to get this box!
The Zombie Survival Kit contains all eight items from the mini collection. Let's check out the details of each of them, shall we?
Safe Zone and Blood Transfusion
Safe Zone- Fortune Cookie Soap
Nowhere is safe anymore, fences can only keep them out for so long.
Remember when life was "normal"? No zombies to worry about. No running for your life. Ahhh the good ol' days when you could wake up to a stack of mouth watering hotcakes, topped with berries and cream. Yeah, me too.
Hello, shimmer! This is the signature product for the company, hence the name, and this particular fortune cookie soap was dusted with shimmer. It's certainly a little messy, but at least you're already in the shower to get it cleaned off. Ha!
Blood Transfusion- Body Wash
With the horrors of death and decay all around, keep yourself clean and infection free with your own personal supply of blood transfusion body wash- if that's even possible.
Rock candy and bloated berries, with a smear of sticky bubble gum.
Can I point out just how awesome the packaging is?!? It's a cute little bag of "blood"! I'm personally not fond of the scent as it is a weird cross of cough syrup and candy, and neither is a scent I care for. If you normally like the smell of candy, you may love this!
Wound Repair and Zombie Repellent
Wound Repair- Salve
Yeeeah...good luck with that.
Lace-like films of cool, white ice, drizzled with melted chocolate.
To Use: Apply to wounds (or cracked, dry knuckles and elbows as needed)
Mint and chocolate? Sign me up! I'm sure I'll get weird looks when I inevitably try to gnaw off a delicious limb after smelling like this!
Zombie Repellent- Room Spray
It may not work, but it's worth a try!
Rotten apple flesh and mulled fruits decomposing on spicy cinnamon sticks, dusted with brown sugar, muted with black vanilla bean and warm oak.
Did you know that zombies were afraid of the smell of autumn? I know I certainly didn't! It's been warm here and not-fall-like, so I can at least get the reminder of the season with this room spray. I LOVE this combination of smells and it makes me want to hunker down for the quickly approaching cold winter. If it ever does get to winter here that is!
Airborn and Weapon of Choice
Airborn- Steam Me Up Scotty!
We're all infected- there's no escaping it.
Rich, dark coffee swirled with thick caramel and melted chocolate.
I love shower steamers, and I am saving this one! My showers are usually rushed right now because of the toddler and infant, and I can't bear the thought of not getting to full enjoy this!
Weapon of Choice- OCD Hand Sanitizer
Now's your chance to battle both germs AND zombies at the same time.
A splash of white wine distilled with rotting peaches and decayed citrus.
Mmmm, peachy citrus.... I love both these scents individually, but I never would have thought to put them together. I guess that's why I'm sitting here at home writing up this review rather than developing products. Haha! I quite like this smell, and I definitely appreciate having another bottle of hand sanitizer in my bag!
Liquid Courage and Rule #47
Liquid Courage- Perfume Oil
Desperate times call for desperate measures...bottoms up!
Puffy clouds of cotton candy dripping with sticky raspberries, pineapples and wild watermelon, all wrapped in the soft embrace of night blooming flowers.
Yum! This makes me think of fruity candy. I kinda just want to eat this.... LOL!
Rule #47- Whipped Cream
Rule #47- Always Stay Moisturized
Grotesque green apple flesh, oozing with blackened caramel.
Rule #47 completes the list of my favorite fall scents- caramel apples! Delicious! It is very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way!
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, this box is no longer available for purchase, but many of the individual items are still available at the Fortune Cookie Soap shop here. I definitely recommend picking up these products as your own special "treat" for Halloween! While you're there, check out the 12 Days of Christmas box that launches for preorder today at 6pm CST. It is a Nightmare Before Christmas theme!
Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day and a fabulous weekend!
