FAQ Service & Help - How may we assist you?

Hi! We're here to help. Drop us an email at customerservice@fortunecookiesoap.com

We love our peeps here at FCS and consider them family. Their dignity is far more important to us than selling a product. If someone is extremely rude, cussing at, or threatening them in any way, that person's account may be deactivated and we reserve the right to cancel any outstanding and future orders. We don't treat our family members that way and don't expect anyone else to. 

We've found that about 99% of people email or live chat with us are amazing -- courteous, kind, patient and respectful, even when there are legitimate problems and we are so grateful that the majority of our customers are this way. We appreciate that sometimes situations can be frustrating but we feel there is never an issue so bad that it is acceptable to demean or devalue anyone by bullying them (yelling or cussing at them and making them cry after the conversation is over).

Email: At certain times, (around launches and such) if we get bogged down, it may take up to 3 business days for us to get back to you. Our work and our customers really matter a lot to us. We just want you to know -- we've got you and won't leave you hangin'! 

General customer service inquiries, please email customerservice@fortunecookiesoap.com 

Live Chat: Click the Live Chat link on the left side of the page to drop in and say hi or ask us a question. If the link isn't available, that means our Live Chat is offline. Feel free to drop us an email or reach out to us on our Facebook page.

Facebook: Some immediate questions can be answered on our main Facebook page (this excludes account information, rewards questions, anything pertaining to personal account information). If your question is account /rewards points related please do email us instead. 

We're closed on weekends so that our peeps can spend time with their families. Call us old fashioned, but we value people being happy and healthy here at FCS, and that happens when their relationships are happy and healthy at home.

My Soap looks different from the picture on the site. Why is that? 

That's a good thing! Each soap and/or product is handmade in small batches, and whilst we aim to make them all look the same they may vary from the photograph on the website, and from order to order. 

My soap is slowly changing color...is it still ok to use? 

We us a variety of natural ingredients that may cause color variations. One of the biggest culprits is vanillin found in vanilla products, which may cause your product to darken/change color over time. This is totally natural and purely cosmetic and in no way affects the products use. No replacements will be made for naturally discoloring products.


Um, why did you name your Hand Sanitizer "OCD"? Not cool, man.

Good question! Although we love being witty, cheeky, and poking fun in general, we chose to name our hand sanitizer, OCD to bring awareness to OCD, itself. We donate a portion of the sales from that product to the OCD Foundation to further research on it. We chose to use the product ocd since that is the product that people generally will jokingly say they have OCD when the use hand sanitizer a lot, so we believe it is the most recognizable to people.

We have other foundations we give to as well - below is a list of our "For a Cause" products. We donate a portion of the proceeds from our Pink Power Fortune Cookie Soap to save the tatas, our puzzle piece bar soap is used to give to ASAN (autisticadvocacy.org), one of our former employees has an autistic child, so it is very near and dear to our hearts. If you are a long time fortune freak, you might remember our Seeds of Love Fortune Cookie Soap which was a limited edition product, used to benefit the Red Cross in helping the people that were in devastating earthquake in Japan in 2011. We also donated a portion of the proceeds from our now discontinued Tree of Life collection to The Canopy Project.  

Are your products vegan?

The following products are NOT vegan: Lip Balms and Tints, Hydrate Me's, Cuticle Butter, Milk Bath, Lip Scrub, Whipped Cream, Massage Bars and Solid Sugar Scrub Bars.

Does FCS or a 3rd Party conduct animal testing?

Definitely not. We do not condone animal testing and have never done any animal testing with our products. When we create a new product, the staff tests it out at home to see how it works. On our labels, you'll notice that we even mention that we do not animal test. This also means we ask that you don't try any of our products on your fur babies (unless it is designed for that!), we aren't sure if it would cause them any irritation, sickness, etc. And we love all fur babies (or Snek, reptile, bird, fish babies, etc). 

Is this site secure?

Why has no one responded to my emails to Customer Service?

Most likely we've received your email and have responded. Some email providers mark our emails as spam or completely block them. Check your spam folder to see if our response is there.

FAQ’s

  1. Do I need more than one subscription? No, there are only 12 boxes a year, just different ways to purchase them.
  2. Can I still skip? Yes, but only with the monthly option. You have complete control of your monthly subscription and can choose when to skip or cancel a box. The yearly and the Four Season’s are prepaid so you are unable to skip a box or cancel the account. 
  3. Are there going to be scents available in the launch at the end of the month that aren’t in the box? All the scents in the monthly boxes will be available at the end of the month launch. However the quarterly boxes will have two additional scents that are not in the box but will be available at the extended launch. 
  4. Will the new boxes be themed? Yes, but not fandom themed. They will have a variety of throwback themes and fun, new themes. All the products in each box will be part of a cohesive theme.
  5. What about fandom? I’m really going to miss the fandom themes. Good news! We LOVE it too and will still be doing plenty of fandom, probably about one collection a month or so. 

A few more things...

  • The next month's theme will be revealed on the 1st of each month. 
  • You have approx. 10 days to decide if you want to keep or skip the next box. 
  • Credit card billed on the 10th of each month. We will try to collect payment for up to 7 attempts. If after this time we can't collect the payment, the system will automatically cancel your monthly box account. 
  • Skip or cancel membership BEFORE the 10th to avoid the next month's credit card charge - this cancels or skips your next shipment as all boxes are charged a month in advance, eg 01/10 charge for the February box, 02/10 charge for the March box and so on. 
  • Soap Box of the Month accounts are completely managed online by the customer, not by FCS customer service. Log into your FCSOTM account to skip a month, cancel, update cc info and change your address all in one easy location.

For any additional questions, please contact customerservice@fortunecookiesoap.com
