This quarter’s theme was Finding Nemo! Most likely in honor of the new Finding Dory movie. 😀 I’m not much of a movie person, but I can’t wait to watch Finding Dory because I have a weakness for animated movies.

Intervention Whipped Cream – Creamy coconut milk and tangy pineapples drifting on a warm island breeze.

This is so good. The coconut and pineapples blend together beautifully to make this warm, sweet scent. The best part is that once it’s absorbed into your skin, it smells like taro. This is summer in a jar! Their whipped creams are one of my favorite products because they’re so hydrating and leave your skin smelling amazing.

It’s a light purple!

Fin, Noggin. Duuude. Pedi Bomb – Lemon-lime Fizzy pop floating with orchids and a curl of white chocolate. 

Definitely one of the more unique scents in this box; it’s crazy how you can actually smell the lemon-lime and the white chocolate together, with the orchids tying it all together. It actually reminds me of a scent from my childhood – like one of those Asian scented erasers. XD But how adorable is this little sea turtle? Just drop this pedi bomb into water and soak your feet!

Oooooooooh…Barracuda Lip Gloss – Juicy cantaloupe, crisp green honeydew, and sweet red watermelon.

A new product from FCS! Kind of. XD The first time they offered a lip gloss was in their Doctor Who collection, but it’s new for me because I haven’t tried it before. I have to say I’m not a fan of the lip gloss formula (or lip gloss in general), but the scent is amazing! It’s a melon party! It smells exactly like watermelon/honey dew bubblegum.

Super shiny.

Not a huge fan of using my fingers to apply lip products, but I can appreciate the packaging with how it displays the product!

Whale Talk Perfume Oil – Strawberries, black currant, jasmine, grapefruit, and fresh avocado. 

Hands down my FAVORITE scent of the entire box. It smells amazing and I can’t describe it enough to do it justice. It’s just perfection; it’s fresh, fruity, floral. The jasmine, black currant, and fresh avocado are the strongest notes and I just love this. If you’ve tried FCS’ Pearls and Girls, this is an amped up version of that! I just can’t get enough of this scent… I’ve bought it in body wash, hand sanitizer, whipped cream, foaming hand soap… XD

Lil’ Blue OCD Hand Sanitizer – Anjou pear and juicy apples harmonized with plum blossoms, sandalwood, and a twist of amber.

I was really interested in this scent when I read the description but I couldn’t smell anything actually exciting when I tried this hand sanitizer (which is one of my favorite products that FCS makes). I bought this scent in a mini whipped cream to test it and… still nothing. XD It just smells… clean, in a boring way. I think the plum blossoms are the most prominent note… and even then, I can barely smell it. It’s just a very subtle scent, I guess?

But look at that shade of blue! *____*

Jelly Man Don’t Be Jelly Soap – Black cherry, watermelon and frothy iced guava nectar floating with sliced strawberries and key limes. 

I instantly fell in love with this one. If Whale Talk wasn’t so perfect, this one would be the undisputed favorite of the box. This is so achingly sweet and at the same time shockingly tart with the black cherry. It smells like a cherry Icee mixed with a watermelon jolly rancher… in other words, SO FREAKING GOOD.

This is their jelly soap! Not a new product, but it’s been a while since they’ve made some. It’s really fun because you break off a piece and use a loofah (or your hands) to work up a lather with it. A new way to get clean. XD

Aqua Scum Spray Lotion  – Juicy lychee, crisp apple, and mouth watering peach nectar.

This one was surprisingly overly floral! I actually got a headache from smelling it the first time because it was just so overpowering. It’s not a bad scent, but I just can’t keep smelling it, so unfortunately this means I can’t really use it since FCS is so great about having strong scents in their products. XD

The spray lotion is actually a brand new product! They had never made it before this box and it’s basically a thin lotion that you can easily spray onto your skin for a quick hydration fix. It’s thicker than their Mist Me and less viscose than their Shower Oils. Perfect for summer!

In case you were interested in what the product looked like – just a slightly off-white, thin lotion.

Shark Bait Fortune Cookie Soap – Sweet oranges, creamy vanilla ice cream, and juicy sandalwood infused strawberries. 

Fortune cookie soaps are, of course, their signature product! This one’s so cute because you can see that one side is longer/bigger than the other to mimic Nemo’s fins. 🙂 This one just smells like a orange creamsicle with a little more depth to me! It almost also reminds me of Starbusts – like if you took a strawberry one and an orange one… and ate them at the same time. XD

The fortune inside.
