This was Jojo’s first (non-clothing) subscription box and I set the bar pretty high after reading many reviews on Citrus Lane. My son is 2 years old and we (okay maybe mostly me) were excited to see what “toys, books, snacks, household products, as well as other goodies for kids and parents” we would receive.

WHAT I LOVED
The Honest Company- I’m liking the Honest Company (Jessica Alba’s eco-friendly company) and I am on the fence about signing up for a household bundle with them. I was happy to try the body wash/shampoo and it is amazing just like I thought it would be. It smells so good! The scent is Vanilla Orange. It’s like a creamsicle of natural goodness. And yes, adults can totally use it too.
WHAT I DIDN’T LOVE
A lot- I felt that the company’s main focus was on thier partnership with The Honest Company and that they let the quality slip on everything else. The products in my box were all very nice but they were not practical for my 2 year old. I got a paint set that says 3+ , a juicebox holder and placemat. He eats and drinks fine without a juicebox holder and placemat and he’s not exactly ready for the paint sheets.
So I didn’t love my first Citrus Lane box. The last few months’ were pretty freaking awesome and I was let down. It happens. The fact that my son still had fun with the paints and liked walking around with the juice box holder brought the box up from a 3 to a 3.5. Will I give them another try? Maybe but I am trying Bluum for May so I may or may not cancel Citrus Lane. If you want to try Citrus Lane for yourself please use my referral link and you can enter the promo code “FIRSTBOX” to try your first box for only $12.50 (with shipping) The usual price is $25 so now would be the time to try it.
In other box related news, my Jungle Stand and Graze boxes have shipped so I have some yummy food coming. Jungle Stand is giving one of my readers a free box so I will be having a much needed giveaway. I want to do a BIG one for you guys and I am planning but I don’t want to say anything, I just want to do it
Also…are my pics too big?? I have gotten some feedback that my pictures are abnormally huge. It may be just on my end and maybe I need to do some testing but they are big (my blog is supposed to be somewhat picture focused) but not “too big”. Please let me know in the comments below. I already tried to make them a bit smaller.
