Citrus Lane Review

Ok, as you probably have noticed, I have really enjoyed checking out the different boxes of the month that seem to be popping up everywhere . . . and I think I finally found a TRUE winner! Yay for Citrus Lane
I have to admit I was not thrilled with them at first. I was going back and forth with Customer Service about getting a tracking number, but I will give them this-- customer service actually responded every time within 24 hours-- not with a tracking number, but at least there was a response.

I really thought I would cancel after the first month. I told them as much on their facebook wall :) My box would need to be AMAZING to keep my subscription.

Needless to say, I am sticking with the membership an cannot wait for next month.

So what was SOOOO amazing . . . well, first let me explain that this is an expensive box-- it is $25 a month, but if you sign up through this link and use code JULYBOX to get your first box for only $7!!!!!!!!!! Wanting to buy a long subscription?

I also should explain what makes Citrus Lane a little different. YOUR box is based on YOUR child. You indicate your child's age and gender and they send an appropriate box. I believe the age goes up to 3 or 4, and I got a box that was clearly for a toddler (my almost 2 year old).

On to the contents. Not everything is in the photo, and I will explain.
First, the box comes with a contents card that tells you which each item is, where to buy it, and how much it costs. This makes blogging about it and its approximate worth SO much easier! :) The information also includes tips each month to make parenting easier AND coupon codes at various stores. My toddler box contained:


  • Paul Frank board book. It is SUPER cute and daughter LOVES it. Value $6.99 is their estimate-- on Amazon for a sale price of $9.99!!!!!
  • Skip Hop Dunck Stacking Bath Toys-- $10 is their value-- $9.99 on amazon
  • Branam All Natural Xylitol Tooth Gel (5 oz full size)-- $7.99 is their value-- $7.11 on amazon
  • Seventh Generation Natural Hand Wash (12 oz full size)-- $3.49 is their value-- $7.99 on amazon
  • Sample of Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum (.17 oz)-- They do not give a value-- 2 oz is $45.00 on amazon--- Citrus Lane includes a mom surprise apparently every month as a little bonus. 
So add all this up- $28.47 is their value--- JUST for the stuff above (I am NOT done), $35.08 with amazon prices. So in JUST the items (which they perhaps UNDERvalued) you got your money's worth.
BUT WITH THIS BOX came a $15 ecomom gift card. NOT some coupon of $15 off 40. No a GIFT CARD with no restrictions of anything like that!!!! That brings the value to $43.47 or $50.08. As an ecomom shopper, I am already using my code this evening!

Gift card and sample not shown, as the gift card was a # I do not want to share :), and the sample was snatched. That is my little one's hand grabbing for the soap already!

Needless to say, I am blown away. This is not a sample box like other places that send small samples, but a company that sends full sized products that are AGE appropriate for your CHILD. I just simply love them!!!!! And I CANNOT WAIT for next month!!!!

  2. I purchased the 3-month special deal for my yet-to-be-born baby (I am due in a month). I expected some pregnancy items that I could pamper myself with, and some newborn stuff, but I got some generic boxes with an alphabet mat and some other toy stuff, diaper rash cream and books. Probably the right value money-wise but not stuff I would have purchased. I was relieved that I only purchased the 3-month special deal and then I discovered they just charged me full price for a 4th month! Called them, and, of course, they argued there was some fine print that I didn't see, stating that the subscription is "automatically renewed." Yes, granted, I am still pregnant and emotional now, but I am very upset about them taking advantage of people like that! Beware of the "automatic renewal" scam if you just plan to purchase a limited-time membership.

  3. I thought the auto renewal was very clearly spelled out. I, too, forgot to cancel and was bummed. But I'm back on their subscriptions. I spend $25 on stupider stuff each month. This is a fun treat.

  7. I just used your link and got the subscription for 15 bucks which is great! Thanks for this. :) Does my subscription stay at 15 bucks every month or does it expire at some point and go to full price? Awesome blog. Thanks again.

  13. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  14. I ordered a gift subscription for my kids from my husband to me in order to avoid the automatic subscription. I am pondering sending this out as a baby gift in the future, so I figured I should try it out first!

  16. I got a subscription from friends of mine when my baby was born 5 months ago. I have full intentions of resubscribing when I'm up and this is why:

    -I receive gifts that are new and exciting
    -the gifts keep this working mom in the know
    -I've liked some products enough that I've purchased other products in their line
    -I am able to recommend unknown products to other moms and have earned the reputation as a tastemaker
    -the products are all earthy, safe, and the absolute best for my baby

  33. Being a first time mom, I had no idea what brand diapers to buy. First I tried a couple of expensive diapers. Both diapers seemed to run quite small. I would buy the size based on my daughter's weight but they were too tight. One brand leaked terribly. The absorbing layer did not come up high enough in the back of the diaper so many times I would find my daughter's clothes a mess. Honest have been the only diaper that never leaked with her.

  39. I like citrus lane. Good products. But, I don't like having to pay for 3 months worth. I started using Fun Box. It's the same only cheaper. http://mkt.com/fun-box
