Citrus Lane: a peek inside my March box...

image
It's Citrus Lane time again! I skipped the February box (extra bills were happening up in here, hence the cutting back on unnecessary spending), so I was excited to be back at it this month.

Here's a peek at what was inside our box this month! Keep in mind that these boxes vary, depending on the age of your child, so ours is for a 2 year old girl:

I've started doing a little research each time I receive one of these boxes, just to make sure they make it worth your while—and this month the total retail price of the items inside was $43.75. Considering the price of the box was $29 (and I was able to use $15 worth of referral credits), that is a pretty good deal! I was glad to receive 5 items this month, because I find that when they include only 4, it doesn't seem to be worth the monthly price (in my opinion).

See below for a few thoughts on the goodies we received:

Eco-Dough from Eco-Kids — I was so excited to receive this all-natural version of play-doh in our box this month. Eisley is currently obsessed with play-doh (we have one container of some I made myself, and she plays with it at least a couple times a day). I'm tucking these two inside her Easter basket for next month. Score!

Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion from Weleda — I'm usually bummed when lotion is included in these boxes, only because it is typically baby/toddler lotion, which Eisley rarely uses. But this stuff is fantastic, and just for meeee! (When a mama item is inside the box, I'm always a happy gal.) The citrus fragrance is wonderful, and so far I'm loving this product. Brings me back to my Clinique Happy days. (Did anyone else saturate themselves with that in the early 2000s?)

Medi Buddy from Me4Kidz — I received one of these a couple years ago in one of our very first Citrus Lane boxes, so it's a bit of a repeat. Still, it's something I will use, and am glad to have on hand. There are a bunch of things tucked inside that are good to keep in a car or diaper bag.

Beginner Puzzle Set from Petit Collage — When I first saw this puzzle, I was afraid it would be to easy for Eisley (lately she's been all about the puzzles) but as it turns out, she absolutely loves it. Some of the characters include fewer pieces, and some include more, so it makes it quite fun for a toddler try to figure out on their own. It is a great-quality product, and I'm happy to have one more puzzle to add to our collection! We received another puzzle from Citrus Lane last year, and it remains a favorite of Eisley's. I love when they include items like this, because they keep her interest much longer than almost any other sort of toy.

If you're interested in snagging a Citrus Lane subscription for yourself or someone you adore, feel free to use my referral link—if you do, you'll get 50% off of your first box (and I will receive a credit on my account, too!). I've received many boxes over the past couple years and have had such a positive experience with this company, which is why I choose to review these boxes here on the ol' blog. If you end up ordering a box of your own, I'd love to hear what you think!
