Napz All Natural Short-Term Sleep Aid (60 veggie capsules) – Value $17.97
Lately, I am falling asleep on the couch at 9:30 PM so I don’t really need a sleep aid. However, I go through cycles of sleeping well and then not sleeping well, so I will save this for the “not sleeping well” times. This is vegetarian and does NOT contain melatonin (thankfully). It is some fairly gentle herbs like chamomile and lemon balm and hibiscus that you find in a lot of teas. This product was also included in this month’s Bulu Original Box.
Coffee Blenders Lean Cup Dark Roast (1KCup) – Value $1.30 (buy 10 for $12.99)
As you may know from my other reviews, I am not a coffee drinker. I also don’t have a Keurig machine (so I can’t give this to my husband to test). I am sure there is someone at work who would like to try this out, though. I will be putting it on the “free snacks” table.
MD Intimate Restore Sample – Value $1?
As far as I can tell, this is skincare for intimate areas. It is not a good time of the month for me to test this out and I’m not sure how I feel about using skincare for that area, but it is good to note that you will sometimes get adult or sensitive products in this subscription.
Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil (1 softgel) – Value $0.23 (buy 60 for $13.76)
I can’t take fish oil because it’s not vegetarian, but in general, I definitely recommend getting omega-3 fatty acids to fight inflammation and lower your cholesterol. There are vegan/vegetarian algae-based EPA and DHA omega-3 supplements, but if you are not vegetarian, this could be a great option. This product was also included in this month’s Bulu Original Box.
Shapeologist BurnBlend (2 capsules) – Value $1.10 (buy 60 capsules for $32.99)
This is supposed to increase your metabolism. I am on blood pressure medication right now, though, so it is probably not a good idea for me to take this, personally. However, this is definitely a product consistent with a weight loss subscription and you should expect to receive items like this from time to time.
Synodrin Arthritis and Muscle Relief Gel (0.14 oz) – Value $0.70 (buy 3 fl oz for $14.99)
This is specifically marketed for your joints, but I don’t have joint pain or arthritis. I do have some muscle pain in my leg as a result of breaking in some new workout shoes, and this was about as soothing there as something like Bengay. This product was also included in this month’s Bulu Original Box.
Miracle Tree Moringa Green Tea (1 bag) – Value $0.28 (buy 25 bags for $6.95)
Miracle Tree Moringa Ginger Tea (1 bag) – Value $0.28 (buy 25 bags for $6.95)
Miracle Tree Moringa Mango Tea (1 bag) – Value $0.28 (buy 25 bags for $6.95)
I have had lots and lots of this tea in the past. I am not really a fan of the flavor of moringa but I find that the fruity ones kind of cover up the moringa taste, so the mango (which I’ve had before) is my favorite.
Truvia Sweetener (2 packets) – Value $0.12 (buy 1000 packets for $58.77)
There were also two packets of Truvia. I am not the biggest fan of stevia (I actually like aspartame…) but this stuff is OK in Crio-Bru (cocoa beans you put in a coffee machine) along with some milk, so that is how I will use it. This product was also included in this month’s Bulu Original Box.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $23.26 for the October Bulu Box Weight Loss. That is definitely above the cost of the subscription, even if you are paying full price. I felt that the items this month (at least some of them) were more related to weight loss, though the intimate moisturizer was a bit of an oddity.
I’d strongly recommend using our MYSUB599 coupon code when you subscribe and choosing either the regular or the weight loss box, but not both since there is a lot of product repetition between the two. Points redemption has changed lately to be not so great (following the examples of Love with Food and Birchbox, I suppose) but I will be OK with that if the boxes continue to have high value in the long term.
