Bulu Box Subscription Review & 50% Off Coupon – August 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Bulu Box is a monthly fitness and weight loss subscription box. Their original Bulu Box is focused more on fitness and supplements, and they also have a WeightLoss box that features healthy products and diet supplements. This review is of the original Bulu Box.

Bulu Box sent me this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).


The Subscription Box: Bulu Box

The Cost: $10 (Less than $5 a box with the annual subscription and coupon code!)

COUPON: $5 off forever! For the lifetime of your subscription, every box will be $5 off. with coupon code MYSUB5

The Products: Each box contains 4 to 5 premium weight loss items such as vitamin and supplement samples, fitness gear and healthy eating tools.

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.


Pocket Protein in Strawberry – Value $3.50

I know these liquid protein drinks are popular with marathon runners who can’t stop and eat, but I don’t fit in that category! I still gave this a try, though and I thought it tasted good. I’m not sure I’d be able to drink the whole thing at once though – it is pretty sweet!


Hemp Pro 70 Chocolate – 15 g Value $1

I sampled this Hemp Pro in vanilla from the Bulu Box Weight Loss box this month, and I think they are great for adding some flavor to smoothies – this packet has 7.5 grams of protein!

Ips Chips in Barbeque – Value $2

I’ve sampled Ips chips before thanks to subscription boxes and I really like them! It’s a non-greasy chip, with a nice bonus of egg-white protein mixed in.

John Oliver even sort of made fun of them in his Whole Foods segment earlier this month!

Mediterra Savory Black Olives & Walnuts Bar – Value $2

This bar is my favorite discovery in the box. I have to avoid gluten and dairy in my diet, so that means I always keep snack bars in my purse in case I’m in a situation where there isn’t anything I can eat. And snack bars typically have dried fruit, and some type of sweetener, so the sugar content can get high. This bar only has 3 grams of sugar, and it’s a nice savory alternative to a typically sweetened bar.

E-Hydrate Energy Gels in Strawberry and Mocha – Value $4 total

These energy gels are designed to give you energy and electrolytes. I tried out the Mocha one and I thought the flavor was delicious!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $12.50. That’s pretty good for a Bulu Box!

The value isn’t always that high with this subscription, but I’ve found the value is always good if you use the 50% off coupon and get this box for $5 or less, and you take advantage of their points system.

(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 $5 back in the shop).

I would recommend this subscription if you would buy things from Bulu Box’s shop – with the Bulu Box points it basically makes the subscription a free bonus and a way to try out a few new products each month.

  1. I tried to use this code and it says it isn’t valid?? Please advise

    • I just tested it out and it worked for me. Maybe try typing it in?

  2. A word of warning to active and reserve military members who subscribe and receive hemp food products-food grade hemp is a Department of Defense banned substance for all service members. Be aware that Love With Food often sends hemp items. I’m fully aware of the differences between hemp and THC (I’m a reserve Jag attorney) but regardless DoD has seen fit to formally ban the substance in all forms as it causes (false) positive test readings during random urinalysis that cannot otherwise be differentiated using current testing technology.

    • Interesting. It’s not just Love with Food that sends out hemp (hemp seeds, bars with hemp protein, etc.). Nearly all the food boxes and some of the fitness boxes do. And I’ve gotten hemp lotion in the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box.
