Bulu Box seems to be tinkering with their information cards lately. This month, the Bulu Box app is highlighted. There was also some product literature.
Macro Life Naturals Miracle Reds Superfood (0.3 oz) – Value $2.49 (buy 12 packets for $29.85)
This has a lot of red fruits in it (pomegranate, acai, etc.). I have tried this product before and I prefer to add it to smoothies (as opposed to using it for post-workout recovery as suggested) to get a nice antioxidant boost.
Macro Life Naturals Macro Meal Ultimate Superfood in Chocolate (1.6 oz) – Value $2.91 (buy 23.8 ounces for $43.27)
At first, I was very excited to receive this since I know and like this brand and it was a new product for me. However, it contains collagen peptides so I can’t have it (there is no vegetarian source of collagen). If you are not vegetarian, collagen consumption actually can help with skin health and firmness.
Macro Life Naturals Macro Greens Superfood (0.3 oz) – Value $2.49 (buy 12 packets for $29.85)
I don’t eat enough leafy green vegetables and I know it, so I always have something like this on hand to add to my smoothies (I don’t really like drinking it on its own). This does have milk thistle, which you are supposed to avoid if you are allergic to ragweed, but it has not caused me any issues as of yet (I’ve also tried this product before).
Everbiotics on the Go (strawberry, 3 stickpacks) – Value $4.10 (buy a 30 pack for $40.99)
This is a vegetarian item and contains probiotics, prebiotics (e.g., fiber), and superfoods with lots of antioxidants. This also has some digestive enzymes. I think this is meant to be consumed mixed with water as a beverage, but I prefer adding it to a smoothie. Either way, I’m always happy to try new probiotics and antioxidant products.
Kanna Affects Mood (10 capsules) – Value $5 (buy 60 capsules for $29.95)
This one actually is vegan, or so it claims (but doesn’t actually say what the capsule is made of). This contains a couple of herbs I am not familiar with and is supposed to create a calming effect. I need to do a little more research about side effects, effectiveness, and interactions before I feel comfortable taking this. I suspect some of these herbs are not well-studied (new and trendy things tend not to be).
Dolcetto Petites Chocolate Wafer Bites (0.7 oz) – Value $0.75 (buy a 24 pack for $17.95)
I’m not sure how these relate to health, other than that they are 100 calorie packs. I’m familiar with these from Love with Food (maybe not this flavor) and they are pretty good. They have a thin, crispy shell on the outside and a creamy filling.
De la Cruz Sulfur Ointment (10%, 0.21 oz) – Value $0.34 (buy a 3 pack of 2.6 oz jars for $12.51)
I have definitely had luck treating breakouts with sulfur in the past (that’s what this product is for, though it’s not obvious from the name) so I am happy to try this. My skin is not too bad right now but I did try some out and it didn’t irritate me. I’ll hang on to this for my next breakout. 0.21 ounces doesn’t sound like a lot but you use so little of this at once, it will actually last a long time.
Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (0.5 fl oz) – Value $0.39 (buy 15 ounces for $11.77)
I don’t think coconut oil is a miracle product, but I do like using it in a variety of ways. I put it in my smoothies most days to add a little fat, and this is a perfect size for that (I’ve received dozens of these packets in subscription boxes over the years). It is also a good deep conditioner for the hair (although this packet is a bit too small for that, for me).
Verdict: I calculated a value of $18.47 for the June Bulu Box Weight Loss. That is a pretty good value for this box (definitely more than the $5 promotional price I paid) and even though I couldn’t try every item, I did get some good smoothie ingredients out of it. I don’t necessarily know what the products had to do with weight loss (I guess you can have a smoothie as a meal replacement), but some months are just like that. There was some overlap with the regular Bulu Box and that is also a regular occurrence, for what it’s worth.
I’d definitely recommend using our MYSUB599 coupon code when signing up, and also sticking to either the regular or the weight loss version of this box rather than getting both, as there is often significant product repeat (less so this month than normal, though). Also, don’t forget to review your products for points to use in the Bulu Box shop!
