Citrus Lane July Box Review and 50% Off Your First Box!!!

Well, its that time of the month again!  That's right!  Our Citrus Lane box arrived this past Thursday!    My little one and I are always SO EXCITED when that cheery Citrus Lane box arrives at our door!  It makes every month feel like a birthday!  And this month was no different! 

July's box theme was "Bon Voyage."  What a great theme for the middle of summer!  With everyone traveling on vacation, trips to Grandma and Grandpa's, etc., we can all use more handy traveling supplies!  And this box delivered just those needed supplies!

The first item we received was this wonderful baby clothes detergent by Dapple...

We received 2 travel-sized packets (each containing enough detergent for 3 uses).  These travel packets are made specifically for handwashing your little one's clothes in the sink.  That's PERFECT for that hotel room, etc!  This detergent is free of parabens, phthalates, SLS, SLES, 1,4-dioxane, fragrances and dyes!  Also, its been specially formulated to clean cloth diapers!  WooHoo!!!!!  Both packages also came with coupons for $1 off of a 50oz bottle of the detergent!

The next item we received was this handy little travel kit from California Baby...

This travel kit was specially made for Citrus Lane customers!  How cool is that!  It contained a 2oz bottle of Calming Shampoo and Bodywash, a 2oz bottle of Calendula Hair Conditioner, and a 0.5oz tube of Over Tired and Cranky Jelly Mousse Hair Styler. 

The Shampoo and Bodywash -

Scented with aromatherapy quality essential oils, No tears, non-irritating, non-stripping formula. Safe and gentle, Two products in one - use head to toe.

The Conditioner -

The Hair Styler -
Alcohol-free, Natural starch-base, Organic ingredients, Vegan, No animal testing, Concentrated, May be used on wet or dry hair, Non-sticky formula, Use in combination with their hair conditioner for extra curly or difficult hair, Leaves hair lightly scented, Made in our FDA registered & organic certified facility

Best of all, all three of these products are aromatherapy products that have a calming influence!  We all know how difficult it can be to get a baby or a toddler to go to sleep in a new place - like a hotel room.  What better to take on a trip than bathing essentials that help your little one fall asleep! :)

And since you never know when you're gonna need some first aid supplies, the awesome folks at Citrus Lane also included this nifty Medi Buddy First Aid Kit To Go...

This little first aid kid is AMAZING!  We already had one and I was THRILLED that we received a second one!  Now I can keep one in the diaper bag and one in the luggage!  The kit includes: (15) Kid-Friendly Assorted bandages, (1) Knee & Elbow bandage, (1) Sting Relief Pad, (4) 2” X 2” Gauze Pads, (3) Antiseptic Wipes (sting free), (1) Burn Relief Cream, (2) Antibiotic Ointments, (12) Kid-Friendly Fun Stickers, (1) Reusable & recycled Carry Anywhere Case.

This kit is so handy!  Its just about the size of a hard sunglasses case, so it will fit in a diaper bag, purse, bookbag, or carry-on bag.  And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they included stickers!!!!  No more wasting bandaids when your little one just wants something cute to stick on their hand, etc.  Just give them one of the stickers!  Awesome!  And everything is latex free, so no worries if your little one has a latex allergy! :)

And you can't go on a trip with your little one (whether its a car trip or a plane trip) without some handy snacks, so the folks at Citrus Lane included a box of Ellas Kitchen Nibblers...

These nifty little bars are made from: Organic whole grain oats, organic malt extract, organic raisins, organic dried apples, organic dried pears, organic palm oil, organic sunflower oil, organic dried strawberries.  That's it!  No refined sugars or other unecessary stuff!  So awesome!  I love being able to give my little one convenient snacks tha are healthy as well!

And, of course, you can't travel with your little one without a few small toys to keep them occupied, so they've included these awesome Wee Knit Finger Puppets...

My little one received 3 puppets - a monkey, an elephant, and a lion.  I wasn't sure about these puppets when we first got them.  But I should have known better than to doubt Citrus Lane!  They really do a great job picking toys for my little one and these were no exception!  My little one LOVES these!!!!  She carries them around, talks to them, and asks me to place them on her fingers.  So adorable!!!

(By the way, if you've never checked out the WeeKnit Etsy Page, you REALLY SHOULD!!!  They have some ADORABLE finger puppet sets!  - Everything from the 3 Little Pigs, to princesses, to Sesame Street, to Star Wars!!!  They even have a Hospital Set that includes a little girl, a little boy, a nurse, and a doctor.  What a great gift for a little one that has to go into the hospital!  How adorable!!!)

And lastly, if you're like me, you always do lots of shopping while on vacation and then have to figure out where to pack all that stuff!  Not anymore!!!  The folks at Citrus Lane included this cute and functional bag by Baggu...

This little bag is very cool!  Not only is it super cute, but it holds up to 50lbs!!!  (And it only weighs 2oz, so it won't take up much room on the trip!)  It folds up into a neat little carrying bag when not in use.  And its very comfy.  Its even large enough to carry on your shoulder, which I love!

Once again, Citrus Lane did not disappoint!  This package is GREAT for traveling!  They covered all the bases - toys, toiletries, laundry, snacks, and shopping!  They even sent a $10 giftcard for postagram (an iphone/android app that you can use to send postcard to family and friends)! 

You can receive monthly surprises for your kids as well!!! Just use this REFERRAL LINK to get 50% off your first box!
