Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – 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.
The Subscription Box: Bulu Box
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 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.
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:
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.
