Bulu Box Subscription Box Review & 50% Off Coupon – Feb 2015
Bulu Box is a monthly fitness and weight loss subscription box. Their original Bulu Box is focused more on fitness and supplements, and they also have a WeightLoss box that features healthy products and diet supplements. This review is of the original Bulu Box.
Bulu Box sent me this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Bulu Box
The Cost: $10 (Less than $5 a box with the annual subscription and coupon code!)
COUPON: Use coupon code BULUGAN669 to save 50% off any subscription length!
The Products: Each box contains 4 to 5 premium weight loss items such as vitamin and supplement samples, fitness gear and healthy eating tools.
In past boxes there was a list of items included on a card, but with this box I just received this sheet for “28 Ways to A Healthier Heart.”
I’m not sure if my box was just missing the card this month, or if they are doing away with including them.
MET-Rx ISO 20 Gel in Fruit Punch – Value $2
Balance Bare Sweet & Spicy Nut Energy Bar – Value $1.50
This Gel pouch is an interesting alternative to the protein bar. It has 20 grams of protein, 90 calories, and only a few ingredients: water, whey protein, isolate, phosphoric acid, natural flavors, and sucralose.
This Balance Bare energy bar is gluten free, non-GMO, soy free and dairy free. It also has a relatively low sugar gram count for an energy bar – 8 grams. I liked the flavor – it wasn’t too spicy, but not enough to buy it again. I’ll probably try some of their other flavors though.
Sant Dried Superfruit Beverage – Value $2?
Vita Perk Packets in Energy and Original – Value $1.50
TruBrain Think Drink – Value $2
Sant is a dried organic fruit (Garcinia Indica), and the concept behind Sant is creating a drink you can take anywhere without water bottles. You put 6-8 pieces of the dried fruit in water and let it infuse for at least 30 minutes. (You can adjust the sweetness and flavor by using more or less fruit, or letting it infuse for shorter or longer). At first take, I’m not loving the scent of the dried fruit, but I’ll still give it a try.
These Vita Perk Packets are vitamin mixes you blend into your coffee as a different way to take your vitamins every morning. I like the idea a lot, so I’m going to test it out and see if it works with tea as well!
I wish they would have included more information with this TruBrain Drink. I’m not sure if the size included is the full size or a sample, and they aren’t any ingredients on the package. (I’m having difficulty finding a complete list of ingredients on their site as well).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $9. That’s typical with what I’ve received in past boxes. The value is good if you use the 50% off coupon and get this box for $5 or less, and you take advantage of their points system.
(With the 50% off coupon you can get your monthly box for $5 (or less with an annual subscription), and then you get $1 to spend in the Bulu shop for every product you review. So this box would cost you $5 and you’d get $5 back in the shop).
I would recommend this subscription if you would buy things from Bulu Box’s shop – with the Bulu Box points it basically makes the subscription a free bonus and a way to try out a few new products each month.
