Citrus Lane April 2014 Box Review - 2 year old Girl

You'll save 50% off your first box if you do!

Before I start with my April 2014 review, here are two reviews from March 2014.

So I was very surprised when I tracked my April Box, because it was supposed to arrive one day earlier then predicted.

So here it is:

We received the April Box for a 2-3 year old Girl.

It contains:
- A Flower Set from Green Toys, which was custom made for Citrus Lane. 
That means it is a smaller Set (half the pieces), then their Big Bouquet Set that costs 27.99$
The Big Bouquet Set costs 19.59$ on Amazon. I wish we would have gotten the Big Bouquet version.
 - A Set of 2 Tumblers from Green Eats, which I really like. I personally just think they are a little too big to be tumblers for 2-3 year olds. A smaller size is easier to grab for small hands and the outside of these seems very slippery for toddlers.
I personally have nothing against the color green for my daughter but since I selected 'Girl" for my subscriptionI would have expected a different color. (These Tumblers come in the colors blue, green, yellow and orange)
This Tumbler costs 5.99$ on Amazon.
 This book costs 8.99$ on Amazon.
I really like Barefoot Books, so I am very happy about this book. It is about a Prince who refuses to go to sleep and it also includes a story time CD with 2 versions of the story.
This Sample is 2 Fluid Ounces and the 16 Ounces one costs 2.99$ on their website. 
I love the clean lemon scent and also the fact that it cuts grease and is biodegradable.
- Also we received a Free Card offer from Treat
I was very excited about this, until I saw in the fine print that this is for new customers only.
That's a bummer. I have been a customer with them for more then a year now and love their products and quality.

So all in all this is a neat April Box, but If you add up the numbers then it comes very close to what the normal monthly Box costs and there were a couple things I didn't like about some products.

Thank you.

  1. I felt exactly the same about the value of our box (the card is free and the soap is a free sample) and I cancelled my sunscription after being unhappy about last months box. They tried to give me the next 3 months at 15 each to stay (and i guarantee thst after the cost of shipping they are STILL making a profit) but I declined. Our first box was great. The second was "valuable" but worthless to us and this month is worth less retail than the cost of the box. I would rather buyxwhat I want full price.

  2. Oh wow. I understand.
    Thanks for letting me know about your experience.
    Yes I hope this was just a weak month and I am hoping next month will be better. (we have the 6 month subscription)

    Happy Easter to you and your Family.
