Bulu Box Weight LossJanuary 2018 Box closed

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 Weight Loss January 2018 Review

There are box variations, and sometimes rather heavy product promotion, so you may not always get the same box as someone else or be able to make the connection to weight loss for each product:

Bulu Box Weight Loss January 2018 Booklet Front

Bulu Box Weight LossJanuary 2018 Booklet Back

The information cards are now generic rather than describing your items.

There are usually coupons (which may or may not be for items in the box), product literature, advertisements for other subscriptions, etc. This one was actually more relevant than usual.

Multiforce Alkalizing Multi-Mineral Dietary Supplement Powder in Natural Mango Flavor (1 serving) and Natural Lemon Flavor

Multiforce Alkalizing Multi-Mineral Dietary Supplement Powder in Natural Mango Flavor (1 serving) and Natural Lemon Flavor (1 serving) – Buy 30 Servings for $29.99

I received a rather large bottle of this in a fitness subscription box last month, so I’m already familiar with this product. As a biochemist, I don’t buy all of the hype around alkaline foods and beverages (your body does a pretty good job at maintaining optimum pH without assistance from this type of product). But this contains magnesium, so it can help with blood pressure, getting better sleep, and overall calmness, and it’s worthwhile to try because of that. I prefer the mango flavor, personally.

This product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Vade Nutrition Dissolvable Protein Scoops Original Combo Pack

Vade Nutrition Dissolvable Protein Scoops Original Combo Pack (1 serving vanilla, 1 serving chocolate) – Buy 30 Servings for $29.99

These are single-serve protein powder (whey) samples in dissolvable outer casings. The casings are made of food-grade ingredients and, after a bit of shaking in water or blending in a smoothie, they dissolve. If you don’t want to mess with loose powders and a scoop, these are perfect. They do dissolve well and the protein blends well because it is whey. (The Vade website says the original price is $75 for 30 servings and that $29.99 is a sale price, but I think they are just trying to make you think you are getting a deal and never intended to actually charge the $75, which would be very, very high for this type of product.)

This product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Tru Women Plant Fueled Protein Bar in Zesty Lemon

Tru Women Plant Fueled Protein Bar in Zesty Lemon (1.69 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $33.48

This is a new product that you can’t yet buy, so I’ve linked to the Bulu Box page for it, where a price is listed (as well as a further link for the manufacturer’s “under construction” site). These are plant-based protein bars so they have that texture that is not quite as smooth as whey-based bars, but they are vegan if that is something you are looking for. This tasted better on the first bite than it did as I continued eating; something in it just coated my tongue in a not altogether pleasant way. I am not sure why they’re marketed to only women as I really think they could have wider appeal (not this flavor, maybe, but some of the others). (You are not going to see a guy eat one of these at the gym because of the packaging!)

A different flavor of this product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Tru Women Plant Fueled Protein Bar in Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough

Tru Women Plant Fueled Protein Bar in Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough (1.69 oz) – Buy 12 Bars for $33.48

The same goes for this one as the one pictured above; I actually liked this flavor quite a bit more than the lemon and think this would be one of the flavors with wider appeal, overall. It also works better with the plant protein than the lemon flavor did.

A different flavor of this product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Vital 4U Vitamin C Drink (2 packets)

Vital 4U Vitamin C Drink (2 packets) – Buy 12 Packets for $8.95

These are immune support supplements; they have vitamin C (of course) as well as zinc and vitamin B12. Bulu Box has really been hitting the zinc supplements lately; we got some last month, as well. But it is cold season and if you take zinc at the first sign of a cold, it could shorten the duration. What I like about these is that they mix with water well because they’re already liquid, instead of powder. That makes them more portable because you don’t have to have an immersion blender or shaker bottle handy to get them mixed well.

This product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Goodwipes Body Wipe (lavender scented, 1 count)

Goodwipes Body Wipe (lavender scented, 1 count) – Buy 10 Wipes for $8.99

I am noticing this month that there are a lot of products marketed for women. I am sure I did put my gender in the profile I filled out, but I would be interested to know if male subscribers received different products. Anyway, I’ve tried the male/gender-neutral version of these and they are nice in certain situations (like when you have plumbing issues at home and can’t take a shower, which has happened to me in the past year). I will hold on to this one for now; if I hoard body wipes from subscription boxes, I have them when I need them and I never need to buy them.

This product also appeared in my regular Bulu Box this month.

Verdict: There were six items in this month’s Bulu Box. How much value to assign to each depends on how much you paid for the box. If you paid full price, they average out to $1.67 apiece. I got in on a $5 for life deal, so the average cost per item is $0.83 for me. You can currently use our coupon code MYSUB599 to get your subscription at $5.99 per month, for the lifetime of the subscription! From my perspective, the individual item values were generally above $0.85, and usually above $1 (or more) as well, so I feel like I got a good deal this month. It’s not the highest value box I have ever received, but everything was useful and the value was at least equal to what I paid.

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. Please also note that instead of getting points you can redeem for merchandise if you review your samples, now you get sweepstakes entries, which isn’t as good of a deal (unless you are the winner…).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, February would be your first shipment. Also, keep in mind that there are variations in the boxes, so your box might not be exactly like mine in any given month.

Coupon – Use our coupon code MYSUB599 to get your subscription at $5.99 per month, for the lifetime of the subscription!

Value Breakdown: At $10 for the box, you are paying about $1.67 per item.
