Bulu Box Subscription Box Review & 50% Off Coupon – Jan 2014 Box

Bulu Box Subscription Box Review & 50% Off Coupon – Jan 2014 Dream Water

Zestra Essential Arousal Oil – Sample Value $3

Dream Water – Value $3.25

Since I received this box for review purposes, I’m not sure if they provide more customization for subscribers based on age or gender, but I was a little surprised to see this Zestra sample in the box!

Fortunately, the Dream Water isn’t something I need, but it seems to get decent reviews on Amazon.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $11. That’s typical with what I’ve received in past boxes. The value is good if you use the 50% off coupon and get this box for $5 or less.

(With the 50% off coupon you can get your monthly box for $5 (or less with an annual subscription), and then you get $1 to spend in the Bulu shop for every product you review. So this box would cost you $5 and you’d get $6 back in the shop).

Do you subscribe to Bulu Box? What do you think of it?

  1. Liz – You might want to delete the last sentence in the first paragraph with the verdict heading. It’s repeated as the first sentence in the second paragraph.

    I had no idea that things like Zestra and Dream Water exists.

    • Zestra has a lot of TV commercials on Discovery Channel and related networks (usually late in the evening).

      I got Dream Water from another box one time. It gave me the weirdest nightmares I think I’ve ever had.

      • No cable 🙁

        I never heard of Dream Water until today, but it concerns me that the amount of stevia or melatonin is not listed on the bottle. I’m not surprised by the strange dreams. Too much melatonin can do that. Also can an amino acid work once it is dissolved in water? I use Stevia, but it can be dangerous for people taking insulin because Stevia can lower blood sugars. I’m done ranting about Dream Water. I thought it might be something that could be helpful to my sister, but it caused me alarm once I start reading about it.

        • Amino acids in water are fine. That’s basically what happens to solid pills in your stomach when you swallow them, anyway.

          I got rid of cable when I had to come up with a car payment. But I still remember the Zestra lady from six months ago.

          • That makes sense. Chemistry is not my strong point. Thanks!

    • Thanks – whoops!

  2. This box has been a waste of time for me, I haven’t found anything worth the money I spent on it and none of it has to do with weight loss. On the off chance there is a protein bar or something in the box that’s useless because I already have a brand for protein powders and bars. I would not reccomend this box to anyone unless you could get it for under cost and do the reviews to get money for supplements you like in their shop.

  3. I have two accounts, I had a 3 for 1 deal and got three months for 10 bucks. Overall, I have not been impressed, the samples are not great, nor are they tailored to your profile. You also don’t get enough of a sample usually to know if it it works, at least I don’t feel. I work nights, so I love when they send sleep aides, but one pack doesn’t help me. Also, I have gotten Zestra in 4 of 4 boxes. I am 26, not sure why they are sending it. Oh, I tailored on box to weight loss and one to strength training. The last two months, they are usually identical minus one or two things.

  4. Maybe it’s just me, but how are you supposed to decide if you want to try a vitamin brand with only a single sample?

    • Maybe to see if you like the taste and make sure they don’t hurt your tummy. But yeah, other then that there isn’t much good. Not like you’ll see anything!

    • I’ve personally bought vitamins after trying them from this box because they were delicious. So really it’s about the taste and how excited I am to consume the vitamins. Otherwise you are less likely to take me them if they are gross tasting no matter how effective. You can always get an idea of how they can effect you like if they raise your blood sugar which is a no no for those with diabetes.

    • This box is bitter-sweet for me. I have ordered twice and I had only received half the order. The first time I contacted them, received the item within the week. The second time, 5 emails without a response, I posted on their Facebook and of course that initiated a quick response. Said it was coming from the manufacturer each time and they were working in order communication. My frustration was why did it take 3 weeks for a response? Will not order again through them. I almost filed fraud on my credit card!
