bulu-box-oct-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).

Bulu Box has a great rewards program. You get a dollar in Bulu Bucks for every sample you review, and since the box is only $5 with coupon, it’s a great deal if you would buy full-size items on their site.

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

DERMIS8 Exfoliating Soap Bar – 25 g Value $1

Xlear Saline Nasal Spray with Xylitol – Sample Value $2?

Bulu Box usually doesn’t send soap, but I’m OK with it! This soap has a nice carrot scent, and it has built-in exfoliant thanks to walnut shell powder. (FYI – this item is listed as a lifestyle bonus on the info card).

I’ve only thought of Xylitol as a sweetener, and I was surprised to see it in this box as an ingredient for a saline nasal spray! This spray gets great reviews on Amazon and it is all natural, so it will be good to have on hand during cold and flu season.

Dr. Price’s Super Immune Booster Powder – Value $.75

Jelly Belly Sport Beans Quick Energy – .35 oz (5 beans) Value $.50

Bulu Box seems to know cold and flu season is upon us (can you tell I’m worried about getting sick?) so I appreciate this immune booster powder as well.

These sport beans were pretty good. (Not as delicious as regular Jelly Belly beans, but that’s probably a good thing!) I like that these beans are colored with fruit juice (regular Jelly Bellys use artificial dyes), and these beans are made with vitamins and electrolytes as well.

Mediterra Savory Black with Sundried Tomato & Basil – Value $2

I’ve sampled this bar in another flavor thanks to Bulu Box and I’m a fan! I have to avoid gluten and dairy in my diet, so that means I always keep snack bars in my purse in case I’m in a situation where there isn’t anything I can eat. And snack bars typically have dried fruit, and some type of sweetener, so the sugar content can get high. This bar only has 4 grams of sugar, and it’s a nice savory alternative to a typically sweetened bar. (Plus I LOVE basil!)

More-T Toothbrush – Value $8

(FYI – this item is listed as a lifestyle bonus on the info card). With this toothbrush you brush your teeth a little differently:

I’m intrigued!

Tiger Balm Ultra Strength Pain Relieving Ointment – .14 oz total – Value $1

I’ve never used Tiger Balm, so I had to open up one of these packets to try it. (Even though I don’t have any muscle aches at the moment). It’s a thin balm, so these packet samples should actually be able to cover a decent area, and it has a super strong Menthol scent!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $15. That’s on the high-end for Bulu Box values, and I love that they included two lifestyle extras this month. (More of that, please!)

The value isn’t always this high with this subscription, but I’ve found the value is always 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 $7 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 was happy with my box this month (especially considering I have the $5/box for life deal with them).
    Here’s what I got:
    – Mediterra Bar in Olive & Walnut flavor (it’s yummy!)
    – Bach “Natural Stress Relief” Rescue Pastilles (full size tin)
    – Sport Beans (same sample as Liz got)
    – Dr. Price’s Immune Booster (same sample as Liz got)
    – Tiger Balm ((same sample as Liz got)
    – 2 “Lifestyle Bonus” samples…one was a foil packet of supplements for insomnia (Ryte Rejuv), the other was a foil packet of BluCetin (some sort of liver cleanse thing)

    • I received the exact same box as you did and am happy with it. Not swapping a thing. I’m so glad that MSA let us know about the $5 for life code!

  2. WOW must be nice both my boxes were AWFUL and I mean AWFUL 2 foil tiger balms 2 tea bags a sample of burn pills and a bar that was it same crap in the bulu weightloss and reg. bulu thank god this is my last box.

  3. I’ve found that they are giving me a huge value every month. This month they gave me a full size bottle of joint supplements. Last month I got a full size bottle of fish oil capsules, which I looked up and retails for $45!!

    • I also got the fish oil last month and agree it was a good value. And I got the full size bottle of joint health this month which would be a good deal except that the mfg date is 11/13. That’s just too old for me to consider using. And I found it interesting that when I went to review the products I received the Joint Health was not part of the products I received to review. So I wonder why they wanted feedback on everything else but not that full size bottle.

  4. I actually love this box. I obv used the coupon code to get $5 off for life and I always take advantage of the points system… yesterday I ordered the full size Tiger Balm and only paid $3 for it, plus free shipping. A month ago I bought two different peanut butter powders (less fat for protein shakes) and paid $10 instead of $25 or something. I love the box because I know I’ll always get a new snack/energy bar to try, some type of gummy or jelly bean pre-workout energy item, a new protein powder to try in my shakes and then a handful of other oddball, but useful health remedies. I didn’t get the toothbrush but I did get some weird gummy lozenges that apparently relieve stress. I looked it up and it has great reviews on amazon. I always look forward to this box and I end up using most of the items and they’re always ones I haven’t tried before. Two thumbs up.

    • Oh, the only complaint I had about this month’s box is that I received the points card that said I could review the items for $7 worth of points and there was only $6 worth of points I could review for. I emailed them and complained lol. I’m waiting to get a response.

      • They must be actually offering a dollar less than what they say. Mine was for $6 but only $5 when I checked in. And I wanted to let them know about the Joint Heath bottle with the mfg 11/13 date. When I went to review the products that one was not listed so I’m guessing they just threw it in as an extra. It was a regular size bottle – 30 capsules though so I would have thought they would list it.

      • I think my original comment was deleted…. why?

        I wanted to share that I love this box. I obviously used the $5 off for life coupon so my box only costs $5 that I later get back in points after reviewing the items. I look forward to it every month because I know I will get a new nutrition/energy bar that I’ve never tried before, some kind of gummy/jelly bean energy thing that I use before my workouts, some type of protein powder I’ve never tried to throw into my healthy shakes, and a handful of other health remedies/oddball items that I’ve never heard of and am happy to try. This month I received some gummy lozenge that apparently relieves stress naturally.. I’m always skeptical of those types of items but the reviews on Amazon were great. All in all, I love this box. I just bought the Tiger Balm and only paid $3 for it plus free shipping, something that would normally cost me around $20. Love Bulu. Two thumbs up.

        …. Here’s to hoping this comment doesn’t get deleted either… if so I would love to know why.

        • I’m seeing all your comments as approved and visible on my end – but if there’s something that is still missing let me know.

          • Yup, you are right, my mistake! For anyone else who has this problem just keep refreshing your browser, and give it time. Thanks Liz!!

  5. Funny I also subscribe to Bulu but some of the things I got were different. I was offered $6 to review the products but when I went there it was only $5 offered, I don’t expect much for $5 a month and some months are better than others. What really turned me off besides the samples I won’t use was a bottle of “Joint Health” that had a mfg date of 11/13. I did not get the toothbrush which is one thing I would have tried and I did get the soap which I may try. The rest is useless to me.

    • Well I am really feeling left out. I got a few samples such as the Tiger Balm and some energy gum but no toothbrush or soap or anything except a few foil packets. I mean the samples were so puny it could’ve been a Bulu envelope instead of a box! Guess I’ll have to redo my profile or give up.

  6. I had this box for 6 months about a year ago. The first couple boxes were garbage, but around the 4th month I tweaked my profile to be very stingy with what I wanted & it fixed things. Last few boxes got much better.

    Moral of the story: it’s all about profile specifics with this subscription!
    (Unlike Ipsy lol)

  7. This is a great box! I just cancelled my subscription with Bulu Box. At least half of what I get are energy supplements which I caanot take (and I put that on me profile.). So it just wasn’t worth it for me. On a positive note I love that Tiger Balm! Works like a charm!

  8. If I signup/re-signup now would I get this box? That toothbrush really intrigues me. Also, some of the other stuff looks good as well.

    • Bulu boxes vary by subscriber, so I would recommend reaching out to their customer care to see if there’s anyway you can request that sample. (Not sure if it is possible, but worth a shot!) Hope that helps!
