Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Review – August 2015 Box

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 Weight Loss 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).

Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Review – August 2015 Info

Each box comes with a card detailing the items in your box.

Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Review – August 2015 Gummy

RAP Rapid Acting Protein Gummies – Value $2.50

Mediterra Yogurt & Oat Bar with Cherry Pistachio – Value $2

Choice Organic Regularity Caffeine Free Tea – Value $.25

I recruited some help from my husband Eric for taste testing the gummies and yogurt bar since I couldn’t try either (both have dairy in their ingredients). He loved the yogurt and oat bar but described the gummies as “a little worse than the medicine you hated as a child.”

So, we might buy more of the bars (they have 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber), but we will never speak of the gummies again!

The tea didn’t have any reviews on Amazon – but some of their other variations get good reviews.

Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Review – August 2015 Hemp

Hemp Pro 70 Vanilla – 15 g Value $1

Platinum Labs Optiburn Amped – 1 serving Value $1

This little hemp pro packet has 7.5 grams of protein! I really adding hemp powder to smoothies, sauces, salad dressing, etc. and this one will be perfect for smoothies. (They also recommend using it in yogurt or hot cereal). FYI – this blend also includes organic coconut sugar so it is a little sweet.

The Platinum Labs Optiburn Aped is a supplement powder designed for “boosting energy and controlling cravings.”

Verdict: This box has a value of about $7.

I think even the $7 value is OK 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. You know how there’s always that moment in a horror movie when the girl slowly reaches out her hand to the basement/closet/attic doorknob and you yell at the television, “Don’t do it! Don’t do it! Don’t do it!”

    Yeah, like that.

  2. I just received an email from them for even more of a discount.
    $54 for a year code SUMMER54
    $29 for 6 months code SUMMER29
    $15 for 3 months code SUMMER15

    The $54 code gets you the box for $4.50 /box.

    I think they’re not the best boxes but you can still get some interesting things, just as long as you go in knowing what to expect you can’t get too disappointed I think.

  3. I was always so disappointed with Bulu. I wanted so badly to love it but it was such weird things. My worst product ever was thinning hair foam. I have super thick hair it was the weirdest thing ever and I had no clue what it had to do with fitness. The best thing was that I was able to try the Hemp protein powder. Love that stuff, used my points to buy a big bag of it. So there was an upside, I guess.

  4. LOL at the “a little worse than the medicine you hated as a child” description of the gummies.

    Sold! Ha, ha!

  5. I never signed up for this one because they couldn’t guarantee the boxes would be vegetarian (a lot of supplements and gummies have gelatin in them). I would totally try this kind of thing if it was vegetarian, though.

  6. I think this is the first time my box has matched the reviewed box. I generally like the samples I get from Bulu Box, but they should really reconsider shipping gummies to the south in the summer. This is the second time I’ve gotten gummies this summer, and both times they were melted into one giant blob. Although, it sounds like I dodged a bullet this time. lol

  7. That sucks! I want energy products and don’t seem to get much. My box is completely different from Liz’s as well

    • I did Bulu for a year, and I always got products that I didn’t want/need. I gave up.

  8. Wow– my weight loss box was so much better than yours, I think. I received a 360Stim sample (two servings), two full-size Pure Charge Protein Powder packets in both chocolate and vanilla, a full size bottle of NutriGold Women’s Multivitamins (30 day supply), a Choice Detox Tea sample, and Platinum Labs Optimum Amped Fat Burner Powder (one full-size packet).

    My regular box was good, too. Plus, with all the points I received for reviewing both boxes, I was able to order their Limited Edition Share the Health Box for $2.99 plus free shipping (Regularly $22.99), and got points back on that purchase as well.

    I know that a lot of people don’t see the value in Bulu Box, but I think that once you figure out how to work it, the value is definitely there. If you use the $5 per box for life coupon to buy the subscription, you get that $5 (and sometimes more) right back in points by reviewing the samples, so the box is free. Then you use a combination of the points, promo codes, and sales to buy the full-size products. It has been a tremendous value for me.

  9. I was bummed with my bulu box this month. I got some weird things and even though i have specifically set my profile to not include energy products, i had three. I cant have stimulants like that. My box did have a better overall value of about $15.
