Included was an information card detailing the products in the box and some product literature for one of the items.


Snack Less Date and Peanut Bar (1.41 oz) – Value $2.25

These are vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO, if any of those are of concern to you.  (But the varieties all contain peanuts or tree nuts.)  They are on the low-ish side for energy bars at 160 calories each.  I like the mix of protein and fiber – it’s great for keeping you full for longer.  They have a pretty standard date bar flavor and texture.

The Hand Stuff (3 g) – Value $0.63

This is a bit waxy but warms up as you start to apply it.  It seems like more of a winter item from my perspective.  It contains lanolin so is not vegan.  (In general, Bulu Box is probably not a good match for vegans.)  I do not know why this was in a weight loss box, though…

Quality of Life Krill Oil MD (60 softgels) – Value $29.95

I was unable to try this because it is not vegetarian.  However, if you are OK with consuming seafood products, omega 3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA are great for lowering triglycerides.  (If you are vegan or vegetarian there are alternatives available from several online vendors.)  Also, total win from a value perspective if you’re not a vegetarian.


Fru-Licious Freeze-Dried Banana and Strawberry (0.35 oz) – Value $1

This is a good value for freeze-dried fruit.  I find it to be particularly good in oatmeal.  If you let a bit of hot water soak in, it rehydrates the fruit.  Plus, it has a much longer shelf life than fresh strawberries and bananas!

Shotz Natural Energy in Pomegranate (2.5 fl oz) – Value $2.92

These have some sugar and are about 40 calories each.  Interestingly, they do not seem to contain caffeine, so they are basically just juice with some added B vitamins.  Good if you don’t want a stimulant – caffeine in some energy drinks/shots/supplements keeps me up at night.

Verdict:  I calculated a value of about $36.75 for the April Bulu Box Weight Loss version.  That is pretty impressive although of course I can’t use the highest value item (Bulu Box does not promise to cater to dietary restrictions).  If you subscribe with a coupon and review the items in your box for points, and if you would shop in the Bulu Box shop anyway, the box basically pays for itself (the value isn’t usually this high) and months like this are just bonuses.

What did you think of the April Bulu Box Weight Loss version?

  1. Wow. Thanks for sharing. Its helpful

  2. My bulu weight loss was different. This was only my second box and I never got a card. I got the freeze dried fruit, gas chews, foil energy drink, 1 cookie. 1 shot sample sleep aid. I will cancel it after I use my points this month. I also bought something from them had problems with getting charged free shipping. Took a few days to fix.

  3. My bulubox for this month was very similar to yours! The only difference was that I had a couple packs of Cal-Ez instead of the peanut bar that you had (and I would have definitely preferred the bar after trying out that calcium powder, ugh). Last month’s box was my first box, and I’m loving what I’m getting!

    Can’t wait until this month’s samples come in!

  4. My April bulu weight loss box was all foil samples ? disappointed, canceling.

    • My weight loss Bulu box was all foil samples too! ? I was surprised when I saw this as I did not receive a full size item ! ?

      • Gosh! Now I’m worried…I just signed up and told friends about it. I saw several good box reveals and thought it would be good. I’m wondering if they are doing the “send good stuff to the bloggers” trickery? At least, I only signed up for .99 cents so I’ll just cancel if it sucks.

        • Hopefully they’re not doing that, sending the good boxes only to bloggers! ☹️ I have my fingers crossed that you and your friends have better luck and receive a full size bottle. I will give them another month or 2 and if the same thing continues, I’ll cancel.

          • I have had a weird experience with this box, too. I signed up in for 99 cents and $5 a month there after. I received my March box no problem, the samples were pretty decent given the price, no April box sent nor was I charged, now I should be receiving May’s next week. However, I did all my reviews and earned enough points to purchase a bottle of hair,skin, nail vits (already on sale) for $2.45 with free shipping.

            I switched to the weight loss box to see if I like the variation better. Hopefully in the future my shipments will not be skewed. IMO the $5 sub is worth it to earn points.
