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.

Bulu Box seems to have stopped providing information cards listing the items in the box.  Instead, you get a generic card.   There was also some product literature for an item in the box.

bulu-box-wl-march-2017-fizzies

Fizzilicious Calcium + Vitaminssugar-free apple  flavor, 12 tablets, 1.7 oz – Value $3.46 (buy a 36-tablet pack for $10.39)

This is a vitamin supplement (no minerals except for calcium) marketed towards kids. It makes a fizzy drink when you drop a tablet in water. This did not have a strong “vitamin” smell or taste to me, which is great. It is also free of sugar, caffeine, artificial flavors, sweeteners, food dyes, etc. I don’t have kids and I kind of don’t like getting kids’ products but if your child doesn’t want to take other forms of vitamins, this might be worth looking into. I think I liked  the orange flavor from Bulu Box a bit more, but this isn’t bad.

Vitafive CoQ10 Gummies2 – Value $1

VitaFive Calcium and D3 Gummies, 2 – Value $1

VitaFive has their own subscription; see my reviews here. You can’t purchase the packs individually but a 4 week supply of a vitamin is $14 and each of these packets contains 2 days’ worth. Vitafive gummies are thickened with pectin, not gelatin, and they are quite open about their ingredients, so they are a good choice to consider if you have dietary restrictions (vegan/vegetarian, kosher, halal, etc.). Do keep in mind the gummies have calories (unlike vitamin tablets). Anyway, the flavor is not bad and they’re not too sticky. The calcium ones look that way because calcium is a bulky, white mineral (which was probably tricky to include in a gummy).

Ocean 3 Omega 3 Krill Oil1000 mg, 30-count – Value $15.98 (buy a 60-count package for $31.95)

While it is great to receive a full sized supplement, krill are small crustaceans (related to shrimp and crayfish and such) so this product is not vegetarian and it will be passed along. I do highly recommend taking omega 3 fatty acids, especially if you have high triglycerides. Fish oil or krill oil will do if you are not a vegetarian, but there are also vegan options available (look for products that have EPA and DHA including those from Deva, Ovega, and a few others).

bulu-box-wl-march-2017-ointment

Curoxen First Aid Ointmentfoil sample – Value $0.50?; (buy a 0.5 oz tube for $11.99)

This is quite a small sample. Unfortunately, it is also homeopathic (you can tell because of the “2X HPUS” and “3X HPUS” indications on the “supplement facts” label). As a biochemist, I just can’t recommend using homeopathic remedies. They are diluted so much that little to none of the so-called “active ingredients” are still present in the preparations. I am sensitive to Neosporin so I sympathize with people who can’t use traditional first-aid ointments, but this product is basically just olive oil with a little lavender in it.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $21.94 for the March Bulu Box Weight Loss. I am honestly not sure what most of these products had to do with weight loss, but some months are like that with this subscription. The value was there, although not every product was a good fit for me. If you are thinking about trying this subscription, I have the following suggestions: (1) only get the regular version OR the weight loss version, but not both, because there is significant overlap in box contents; (2) use our MYSUB599 or MYSUB16 coupon to get an even better deal; and (3) be sure to review your items for points you can use in their shop (they do carry things I regularly buy, like Quest Bars and PB2).

  1. Bulu Box doesn’t seem to know what they’re doing. I saw the March “unboxing” on their site, and the only weight loss product in the list in 1 of 2 things I did not receive and I have the weight loss subscription. Very disappointed with Bulu Box and will not be renewing.

  2. That’s so weird- I got a completely different box! I received 3 packets of daily vitamins, women’s probiotic that I also got last month, and a few other things I cannot remember. I didn’t know they did variations on the box!

  3. This is my first subscription- I purchased it on the 17th of March. Does anyone know if I will receive the March box or if I have to wait for the April box?

  4. Is this subscription built with a consistent cut-off date/shipping date or is it based on when you the customer sign up?

  5. I get the regular box and this is what I received. Also, the vitamin coupon code wouldn’t work for me. 🙁

    • Same here, regular box but this is what is listed as my samples. Can say for sure, because I haven’t received it yet. Despite getting the shipment email on the 15th, I checked the tracking and it says the label was created on the 9th but that it hasn’t been shipped yet. Either way, kind of weird that this is my exact box when I’m supposed to get regular!

      • I have received the exact same box for both the regular and weight loss before, in the same month. (They did send a replacement box in that instance.)
