Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure


The FCS of the Month Club features full sized products including past scents making a revival, current releases, and at least one brand new product for us to be guinea pigs with! I love FCS’s products and I am so excited to see what they have chosen! The box is $28 a month and shipping is calculated at check out based on your location.

Each month, the FCS theme is revealed for next month, and you have the option to skip it if the theme isn’t your cup of tea. This month’s theme is NATURAL. While FCS is cruelty-free and strives to use the best ingredients, this month is a focus on organic and natural ingredients.

The info booklet includes details on all the products as well as scent descriptions.

Germaphobe Hand Santizer Spray ($5.99) — A spray version of hand sanitizer. Witch hazel, citrus, and aloe vera keep skin healthy of germs.

Lavender Lemonade Salve ($7.99) — Beeswax and shea butter with a lavender and lemon oil blend. Use this on rough and dry skin for extra TLC.

Flashback Headache Oil ($12.99) — I have a similar product by Saje that sadly didn’t work for me. I really need Advil for my headaches. This is a blend of peppermint, spearmint, and lavender.

Nod & Dream Oil ($14.99) — A blend of oil meant to stimulate dreams. I am not into this sort of thing but it does smell nice.

Woody Hand and Body Lotion ($10.99) — Woods and vanilla. Hands down my fave scent in the box. This is a very hydrating lotion with sunflower, avocado, and jojoba oil.

Cold Buster Aromatherapy Shower Mist — An energizing and soothing blend of mints and eucalyptus to help clear that fog in your head and chest you get from a cold. Spray above a shower to steam it up with scent.

Liquid Fire Pain Relieving Spray — This has arnica in it which is a pain reliever. Good for aches and pains.

The August theme was an interesting one! I like using natural skincare but I definitely don’t make a point to reach for it. This was a great introduction to different scents and ingredients I don’t use enough of. My favourite has to be the body lotion.

    Not my favorite box but next month is Halloween Horror movies and they already spoiled two items from the box. Super excited for it to ship.

      I saw some spoilers too, Lyssa! Maybe the same ones? On their Instagram they had eyeball soap and I believe another product with a Stranger Things theme. I also read in the comments a perfume based on Twin Peaks (Who Killed Laura Palmer?) was a thing.

        There were two more spoilers! One was a blueish/black Jason bath bomb with a plastic cockroach inside (very happy they told us that bc it would be very surprising to see that come in my bath) also a OCD hand sanitizer, Redrum with a plastic finger inside! Pretty cool for a soap box.

          OMG love it… so clever. So maybe they’re doing a horror movie box and then maybe like a horror/mystery TV show as a normal collection or something? Since it seems to be a mixture of both.
