Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – July 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – July 2015 Martha

Urgent Rx Upset Stomach Relief To-Go – Value $1

I’m impressed with the design of these packets. They are flat and can fit into wallets, pockets, etc, plus you just put the powder on your tongue – no need to mix with water.

Martha Stewart Essentials Vegetarian Multivitamin Gummies – FULL SIZE! Value $16.99

I guess Martha Stewart officially has a line of everything now! These gummies are pretty good! They have a bit of a vitamin taste to them, but that keeps me from being tempted to take more than the 2-3 gummy suggested serving per day!

Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – July 2015 Gummy

FUNNBAR Protein Candy Chews – 2 chews Value $.50

Movit Energy Gummies – 1 oz Value $1.50

I feel like energy candy is a big trend lately in the health/supplement world. I didn’t sample these Protein Candy Chews since they include dairy, but the Movit gummies were good! (The first two ingredients for the Movit gummies are corn syrup and sugar though, so I think the energy you get from these is about the same you would get from regular gummies).

Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – July 2015 Ovega

Ovega-3 – 2 softgels – Value $1.60

Nuvia Cafe – 1 packet Value $1

These Ovega-3 supplements are a Omega 3 alternative to fish oil supplements. (AKA – no fish smell/fishy aftertaste – sounds good to me!)

This Nuvia Cafe is an instant coffee powder infused with Organic Ganoderma, Pomegranate and African Mango Extracts. It gets great reviews on Amazon too.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $22. That’s pretty high for Bulu Box. (Normally you don’t get a full-size high-value item like the Martha Steward gummies). I’d say the typical value is closer to $10.

I think even the $10 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.

Do you subscribe to Bulu Box? What do you think of it?

  1. I thought I would try the weight loss box and was so very disappointed. Got one full sized product which were the Bach Rescue Pastilles (stress relief) “For relief of occasional stress” (??) and the other were a few small sample size packets of various odd products, the Urgent RX Upset Stomach, the Movit Energy Gummies, Shapeology Burn Blend, and K-PAX energy chews, plus one wine voucher, which, living in the middle of wine country of northern Calif. is not of value. The products are not related–and most are one dose only. I cancelled since I was entirely underwhelmed and felt they threw in one oddball product and a few free samples with no real connection. For the same price point, Ipsy, on the other hand, is clever and delightful with useful products.

  2. Two months ago, I think it was, they sent me a charcoal mask that I was excited about. Then I realized the expiration date was eight days from the day I received it. When I contacted them, they assured me it was safe. But who wants to pay for expired product?

    • Who wants to pay for a mask in what is supposed to be a fitness box? I did Bulu for a year, and I have several samples that I still haven’t used (the thinning hair ointment is the biggest WTF).

      But you are right on the expiration date – lots of their supplements are also right on the brink of expiring.

  3. I don’t want people to think they’ll get a box like that – I just got box three of the three month subscription and , except for a bottle of near expiration vitamins in June, I’ve got nothing but foil packets. They send a deceivingly large box with 5 samples every month – foil packs.

  4. I didn’t receive the Martha Stewart gummies, but I did get a full sized bottle of Martha Stewart vitamins. HOWEVER, they were about a year expired! I figured it didn’t really matter, because they were just vitamins, but when I took one, it had the most atrocious after taste and I could taste it for the next few hours. Really horrible experience, I’m no longer subbed.

  5. I got a completely different box. I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t get a full size bottle of gummy vitamins, but after reading the comments maybe it’s for the best. I did get a cool looking toothbrush.

  6. I took advantage of the coupon to receive Bulu box for only $5. I had just received it, and my Martha Stewart gummies had a big “This item intended for sale at Walgreens. If found at other outlets call” then the number partially scrapped off.

    This left me feeling VERY unsettled about the business practice of Bulu box and I immediately canceled and emailed them (with no response I might add).

    I wonder if I’m the only one who they forgot to remove the sticker fully?

  7. I am a huge fan of Martha Stewart Essentials Vegetarian Multivitamin Gummies. They are the only vitamin I have been able to take without problems. I was having trouble locating them and spoke to a rep from the company earlier this week. They are being discontinued. It figures. It may also explain them being in this months box. I am almost tempted to subscribe just for this item but with my luck I’d get something else.

  8. I thought the Martha Stewart gummies had a very strong aftertaste!! The initial flavor was fantastic, but vitamin aftertaste really almost made me sick. It might be different for someone else, because I’m very sensitive to taste and flavors. It’s a good thing because of my profession as a cook, but, in this case, not so much.
