Bulu Box Subscription Review + Coupon – February 2017
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.
I had a different “helper” for this box…

Bulu Box seems to have stopped providing information cards listing the items in the box. Instead, you get a generic card with coupons on the back.
Daily Vitamins Burst + Antioxidant Blend in Orange Lime (2 fl oz) – Value $1.50
If you don’t like swallowing vitamin tablets, this could be useful, since it is a liquid vitamin shot. I opted not to try it because it looked like it had come open a little and leaked (see the staining on the package). These are calorie-free and do have a nice mix of vitamins and minerals.
Dr. Price’s Electrolyte Mix Super Hydration Formula in Blueberry Pomegranate (0.09 oz) – Value $0.53
This tasted pretty good. I have had a really bad cold lately and was feeling dehydrated but I don’t like Gatorade and stuff like that (too much sugar and artificial colors, etc.), so it is nice to have an alternative. I think it helped, too, and it doesn’t have artificial dyes.
Bioferrin Crystal Bursts (1 packet) – Value $0.50?
This is an iron supplement. It has a fruity flavor and is kind of like eating Pop Rocks. It’s a nice thing to try if you need to supplement iron and are looking at different ways to do so.
It seems the maker of this is just seeking feedback at this point since you don’t seem to be able to actually buy this online. I only found press releases.
Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder (1.7 oz) – Value $0.48
I have tried this product before. “Suds” is a bit misleading – this contains no soap or detergent, whatsoever. It is basically a few salts (including baking soda) and essential oils. So I would not use it for any laundry that is really dirty or has oil-based stains. (I have very sensitive skin when it comes to laundry soaps so the essential oils make this off-limits for me.)
Dr. Pergolizzi Oxy Joint (42 capsules) – Value $16.33
I am at the point in my life where a joint supplement would be welcome. Unfortunately, this is not vegetarian (but I know a few people who would be interested so I will pass it on to one of them). This has maca powder, L-leucine (an amino acid), cat’s claw extract, and Boswellia serrata extract. I have seen some of these ingredients in other joint supplements but I do encourage you to do some research before taking any herbs to make sure they don’t interact with any medications you may be on.
Hyperbiotics Pro-Women (30 tablets) – Value $28
Do you want to hear something funny? This is the probiotic I normally take after discovering it in a subscription box. I ran out just a few days ago and hadn’t gotten around to buying more. Now I don’t have to! In all seriousness, I find this to be pretty good. It is vegetarian and it also has D-mannose, which is good if you have urinary tract issues. (D-mannose is a sugar from cranberry. You excrete about 90% of what you take in through the kidneys without digestion. It forms aggregates with bacteria that may be present and they pass out of your system harmlessly.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $47.34 for the February Bulu Box. The box is worth it for me because of the probiotic and everything else was just a bonus, as I see it. Some months this box does have low value but then one month will make up for it all by having a value that is getting close to 10 times what I paid for the box (I got one of the $5 for life deals a few months back). Also, don’t forget to review your samples for points that can be used in the Bulu Box shop (they have Quest Bars and PB2, which are items I’d buy anyway).
What did you think of the February Bulu Box?
