Bulu Box Weight Loss Subscription Review – August 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 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).
The Subscription Box: Bulu Box Weight Loss
The Cost: $10 (Less than $5 a box with the annual subscription and coupon code!)
COUPON: $5 off forever! For the lifetime of your subscription, every box will be $5 off. with coupon code MYSUB5
The Products: Each box contains 4 to 5 premium weight loss items such as vitamin and supplement samples, fitness gear and healthy eating tools.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items in your box.
RAP Rapid Acting Protein Gummies – Value $2.50
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.
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.
