Bulu Box is a monthly fitness and weight loss subscription.  The original Bulu Box is focused more on fitness and general health supplements, and they also offer a Weight Loss box that focuses more on diet products.  This is a review of the original Bulu Box.

Bulu Box sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Included was an information card detailing the products in the box.

bulubox-may-2016-flush

Flusher Husher x 10 – Value $3.33

This is so random.  These are stickers you put over the sensors in automatic flush public toilets, I guess so they don’t keep going off while you are doing your business.  (They are suggested for people with small children.)

Tranquil Time Tea (1 bag) – Value $0.53

This has chamomile, spearmint, licorice, lemongrass, and valerian.  I could do without the licorice, which is not my favorite flavor, but it is nice and calming and caffeine-free which is good right before bedtime.

bulubox-may-2016-frulicious

Fru-licious Freeze Dried Apple (0.35 oz) – Value $1

Last month we got this in strawberry banana.  I am saving this.  Occasionally we plan poorly at the supermarket and end up with no fruit at the end of the week.  I use freeze-dried fruit to supplement until we get the chance to shop again!

Libido-Max Red Nitric Oxide Booster x 4 – Value $4

Well, this is the first time I have received male enhancement products in a subscription box…I am not really in a position to evaluate this product but you know, I think the market for such things is quite large based on the contents of my spam folder.

bulubox-may-2016-gum

Xylichew Cinnamon (12 pieces) – Value $2.60

This is sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol from birch.  I’ve had the peppermint flavor before and like it, and I found the cinnamon to be pretty good too.  Just keep it away from dogs – xylitol is toxic for dogs even in relatively small amounts.

Mauer Classic Protein Bar in Coconut Cashew (2.1 oz) – Value $3

This had coconut flavor but not coconut texture, which was interesting.  Overall I liked it, though it did have quite a few more calories (260) than similar bars (by way of comparison, Quest bars range from 170 to 210 and KIND bars center around 200).

bulubox-may-2016-smartypants

Women’s Complete Smarty Pants (2 gummies) – Value $0.41

Men’s Complete Smarty Pants (2 gummies) – Value $0.42

These only have 2 gummies each (one complete dose is 6 gummies).  These are really getting a push this month; they were also in Love with Food.  My husband will eat the men’s ones but they are not vegetarian so I will pass the women’s vitamins on to someone else.

Verdict:  I calculated a value of about $15.29 for the May Bulu Box.  That is not bad for a $10 subscription, especially since you can usually get it for less with a coupon and can review the items for points in their shop.  Some of the items seemed quite random (“Flusher Husher”) but there were enough useful items (gum, protein bar, tea, freeze-dried fruit) to make it worthwhile for me.

What did you think of the May Bulu Box?

  1. I had the weight loss Bulu and the fitness Bulu and found most of the time the fitness one had a variety of products while the weight loss had a couple of products and a full sized bottle of something–which was almost expired or a product which wasn’t as advertised. So I dropped the Weight loss one and kept the fitness. Some months I use everything and other months I end up putting in the break room at work for someone else but since it is five bucks, I don’t worry about value. Nice staff, I always get a quick response to email questions or problems.

  2. Wow, between the Flush Hushers and male enhancement stuff… what an interesting box!
    “And I am not really in a position to evaluate this product but you know, I think the market for such things is quite large based on the contents of my spam folder.” Completely cracked me up ?

    • This was really a big box of random. But that made it kind of fun. And it is nice to know someone appreciates my sense of humor…

    • ME TOO! Bahahaha! Love it!

  3. I got the May weight loss version, and I got similar products: freeze dried fruit, gum, and gummies. Though I got the full size bottle of the Everlast Lean for Women. The information card had 56 pills at $44.99. I got also two bonus items: bottle of VanaPain and sports tea. The weight loss version has a higher value for at least this month!

    • I think my review of the Weight Loss version will post in a few days. Mine had a bunch of these same products but a curcumin supplement in full size, which added to the value a lot.

  4. This was my first box with Bulu and I got some similar stuff. I like it fine for the $5 price I subbed for considering I will get about $5 in points. I wouldn’t be so keen if I paid the full $10.
