Subscription Boxes seem to be all the rage right now. I love the idea of getting products in the mail every month. I've been getting a Citrus Lane box for a few months. Honestly, some months I love the box, and others I feel so-so about.
The customer service has been wonderful. One month we accidentally got a girls box, they quickly replaced the items with non-pink items. I contacted several times to make sure I was satisfied with the change.
The only con is that sometimes I am happier with the box items than other months, but that is also part of the fun!
Here is a sample of what is in this months box:
January Box Contents:
Skip Hop Zoo Lunchbox - insulated, BPA and phthalate-free plus it is adorable. It is just the right size to hold goodies for Baby Peach. I love that the handle has a clip so I can easily attach it to the diaper bag or my lunch box.
Soothing Cream and trial size body wash from Episencial - it's sent free and has quickly become my go to hand cream. I haven't tried it on baby yet, since we don't put lotion on him yet.
Yum Yum Baby Cookies from Ella's - I love the food items that come in the box. They seem to be excellent teething biscuits. They contain a bit of sugar though so I probably won't be buying more for the little one. (If I give him sugar it's going to be from home baked goodies!)
To-Go Disinfectant Spray from CleanWell - this is the puzzling item for me in this months box. I've got it in the diaper bag, but haven't really decided where I should use it.
Bear About Town from Barefoot Books - the books have been one of my favorite items in the Citrus Lane Box and this one is no different. It has a simple plot line and adorable pictures.
I also enjoy that there is always a promo code for each item in the box in case you want more products. The code typically gives you 20-25% off.
Little Peach's favorite part is certainly the box and tissue paper!
If you read the comments from Mama Bee's post on the Stork Stack post you will know I tired one of those in February. I did not like the ingenuity of the products as much as the ones in the Citrus Lane Box. I think I may have just caught them on an off month for us though so I will try another month. I had a similar problem with receiving a girls item, this time baby legs. Stork Stack is having me return the item and then they will ship out a new pair. I was able to handle this by entirely by e-mail, although I will have to make a trip to the post office to mail them back.
Finally, the folks over at Mommy and Me Giveaways are giving away monthly packs from Little Fox, yet another monthly subscription service. You can enter their give away here: http://mommyandmegiveaways.com/?p=10255#comment-13842
