Citrus Lane review - September 2014

Olivia's Citrus Lane box came a few days ago but I've been sick and so has Liv, of course she is my first priority but now I have some time since she is napping. Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies/toddlers. You pay a certain price per month depending on how long you want to subscribe (it’s cheaper for the longer subscriptions). Every month you receive four to five items for your child and sometimes something for you as well. The boxes are age and gender appropriate (or you can pick gender neutral). This box is for a 19 month old girl.

Everything Olivia got in her September Citrus Lane box.

Tea Collection bodysuit:
I really love this, it looks like a shirt but it's attached to a bodysuit. The pattern is adorable and I can't wait to try it on Livy. I knew we were getting this because I got to pick which size we wanted, I just didn't know what the pattern or color would be. I chose size 18-24 months, it may be a little big right now (she's wearing 12 month clothes) but I figured by the winter, it will be perfect! Even if it's still a little big, that's better than being too small. It seems like it's very good quality so I'm sure it will last a long time. I know it will be adorable on her, I'll have to take some pictures of her in it and post them soon. Retails for: $26.50 (wow!)

Boon links 3D foam bath pieces: We already have these. Well, we actually have the foam bath appliques but they are very similar, the only difference is that they are not 3D. I got them as an add on a while ago, now I wish that I had just waited. I know that's not Citrus Lanes fault but it's a bit of a bummer. Olivia loves playing with these in the bath so they will make a good gift for someone, I'm just not sure who yet. I may just end up just putting them up for sale or trade. Retails for: $11.99

Mrs. Meyers clean day dish soap:
This is a repeat. I like this dish soap, it smells so good but I still have some from last time they sent it (April). It's a little frustrating to get the same item twice, it's even the same exact scent (lemon verbena). I wasn't excited to get this, I'll use it but dish soap just isn't fun. Retails for: $2.99  
Happy Tot fruit and veggie blend:
Yawn. Yet another food pouch, I'm really over getting snacks. We have so many snacks for Liv and she isn't really a big fan of pouches. I'll still give it to her though, I don't want to waste it. I wouldn't be sad if they stopped sending snacks or at least these food pouches. Retails for: $1.39
Add ons:
I had to get these cute little puppet Halloween books as our add ons this month. They were practically free with coupon codes and credits. I think these will be the perfect little gifts for Liv on Halloween, I'm sure she will love them! I can't wait to read them to her before bed on Halloween and after of course.

We also got some coupons and a code for a free box but I wont be using it, so if you're interested in that just let me know and I will give it to the first person who asks. This months box was just okay for me, not the worst box we have gotten but not the best either. The total value of this box is about $42. Since the bodysuit was so expensive, I think the rest of the box was lacking but the value is definitely there. I bought the six month subscription and with coupons, I paid about $15 per month so it's worth it to me. If you're interested in getting a Citrus Lane subscription for your child, you can use my referral link to get 50% off your first box - Melissa's CL referral. It's a subscription so make sure you cancel after your receive your box or you will be charged again.
