Citrus Lane Review

Every new mom wants only the best for her baby. We want organic baby food, natural baby skin care products, the softest clothing and the safest toys. But how do you decide what's best when there are so many choices out there? It quickly becomes overwhelming! And what happens if your baby is a little bit needy (like mine is!) and won't let you have hours on the computer to do research and find the best baby products?

Enter Citrus Lane. Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service. They send you a box each month with 4-5 baby products (or toddler products-the boxes are tailored to the baby's age!). If you're like me, and you love getting fun mail, you're already intrigued. But it gets better! Citrus Lane only sends the best of the best! The products a Citrus Lane box contains have been reviewed, loved, and recommended by real parents. They don't accept paid product placements and there are no marketing gimmicks - just great products for your little one from trustworthy brands! It's $25 per month, and all boxes ship for free! In the past, they have worked with Aden + Anais, Skip Hop, Boon, Cloud B, and Zutano, so you can rest assured you're receiving quality products.

I received an all organic "Fresh Start" box for review. My box included:

Green Toys Tugboat (ARV $14.99)
Dolphin Organics baby wash/shampoo & conditioner (ARV $8)
2 - Happy Baby Food pouches (ARV $3)
Pangea Organics lip balm (ARV $12.00)
2 - Plum District $5 shopping cards 
Discount code for 20% off an order at Bloume Baby

That's $48 worth of quality products that we are thoroughly enjoying. Jaxon loves the tugboat (and so do I- it has a pour spout so I can rinse him easily). We had never tried the Dolphin Organics products so I was excited to try them, especially since they contain nothing artificial - only natural and organic ingredients. My husband liked that they are fragrance free (he is not a fan of smelly washes and lotions). The baby wash/shampoo was gentle on Jaxon's sensitive skin and the conditioner left his hair so soft! Jaxon is already a huge fan of Happy Baby, so he quickly sucked down one of the two pouches! I like that there was a little something for mom in there (the lip balm). Taking care of mommy is important, too! There was also an insert inside the box that gave information about each product, including the manufacturer's website, so if you receive a product that you like you can easily find out where to purchase more. 

The Fresh Start box was sent to Citrus Lane subscribers this month, but if you're not a subscriber and still want one, you can purchase this box for $30 (free shipping). It's a great way to sample Citrus Lane if you are not ready to commit to a subscription. 

I absolutely love the shower box you can purchase from Citrus Lane. Check the link to see all the great products in the box - over $90 in gifts perfect for a new mom for just $35, including a Swaddle designs blanket! You can also give a gift subscription, so a new mom can receive a box each month for 3, 6, or 12 months! How fun is that? And check out the November box - it included See Kai Run socks, a Plan Toys baby car, Ella's Kitchen baby food, CleanWell sanitizing wipes, and an Innobaby stainless steel bento box! All of that for only $25? Such a great deal! I would love to have one of each of their past boxes!

I received a Citrus Lane box in order to facilitate my review, but all opinions are my own.
