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 March 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:

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.

Multiforce Alkalizing Mineral Supplement in Mango (1 serving) – Buy 7.9 oz for $29.99

Multiforce Alkalizing Mineral Supplement in Lemon (1 serving) – Buy 7.9 oz for $29.99

This stuff is making the rounds in fitness subscription boxes. I’m going to be honest, as a biochemist, I don’t buy all the hype about “alkaline” this and that – your stomach has a pH of 1.5-3.5, which is very acidic and will counteract anything alkaline you take in before it gets to the bloodstream. However, this has some minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium) that might be hard to come by if you are vegan, can’t/don’t eat nuts, or don’t like swallowing large pills, so if you need to supplement with any of the listed minerals, this may be worthwhile. I like the mango better than the lemon but am not a huge fan of the flavor of stevia. This does also have lactose so watch out if you are allergic or intolerant.

Vegetarian Traveler Pepita and Soy Pea Medley (35 g)

Vegetarian Traveler Pepita and Soy Pea Medley (35 g) – Buy 12 Packets for $23.99

This is a vegan way to add protein to a meal. It is not really seasoned other than with salt, but because it’s made up of beans, it is going to work best in something savory. Like, you could put this over a salad or soup. I got this in a food subscription recently and ate it with some riced cauliflower that came in the same box, and that was almost enough for a meal. So that’s another way to have it. Do be forewarned, the beans are a little on the hard/crunchy side.

A different flavor of this came in the regular version of Bulu Box this month (review coming soon!).

Synodrin Arthritis and Muscle Relief Gel (2 oz)

Synodrin Arthritis and Muscle Relief Gel (2 oz) – Buy 4 oz for $19.95 (found here for $17.95)

This brand must be doing a big advertising push because we got some products from them last month, as well. I didn’t find this to have a huge effect on me, but I have gotten to the point where very few topical pain relief products work for me, personally. Your mileage may vary. I do appreciate getting a decent-sized sample so you can actually judge your response to it over time.

This item was also in the regular version of Bulu Box this month (review coming soon!).

Myrtol300 Dietary Supplement (20 capsules)

Myrtol300 Dietary Supplement (20 capsules) – Retail Value $17.99

This is an essential-oil based supplement that is supposed to help clear the sinuses. Please note that the capsules contain gelatin, so it is not vegetarian. Also, please note that just because essential oils are natural does not necessarily make them “good.” They can cause irritation and allergic reactions (and may contain endocrine disruptors), so be truthful with your healthcare provider about everything you are taking. Anyway, not trying to discourage anyone from taking this, just please carefully research any supplement before you try it!

Shapeologist 15 Day Cleanse (2 capsules x 2)

Shapeologist 15 Day Cleanse (2 capsules x 2) – Buy 30 Servings for $29.99 (found here for $14.99)

All right, guess I am getting back on my soapbox. The main ingredients here are senna (a laxative/stool softener often used before surgery) and fiber. So what is going to happen if you take this is you are going to need to stay near a bathroom (I was given senna after a surgery I had last year). You’ll see a lower number on the scale because you are emptying out your digestive system, but as soon as you stop taking this, you’ll be right back where you started. Frankly, cleanses are pseudoscience and I wouldn’t recommend them. Fiber is OK indefinitely and many Americans don’t get enough, and senna is OK every now and then (hey, a doctor gave it to me), but I’m not sure I’d want to take senna for 15 days!

Goodwipes (lavender, 1 wipe)

Goodwipes (lavender, 1 wipe) – Buy 10 for $9.99

I’ve received these in fitness subscription boxes before. I hoard them; there have been a few times in recent memory when I’ve been prevented from taking a shower for one reason or another, and they really come in handy then. I like that this is individually wrapped; although it results in more packaging, the wipes don’t dry out! It is not the same as taking a shower, but it is definitely better than nothing.

This item was also in the regular version of Bulu Box this month (review coming soon!).

Sunbutter (1.1 oz)

Sunbutter (1.1 oz) – Buy 6, 16-ounce Jars for $29.99

This is sunflower seed butter and it tastes exactly like you’d expect (i.e., that you processed sunflower seeds to smoothness). This item is a subscription box mainstay; I’ve received it numerous times before. I will probably stick with regular peanut butter, but this could work for kids who go to peanut-free schools.

This item was also in the regular version of Bulu Box this month (review coming soon!).

Verdict: There were eight items in this month’s Bulu Box (weight loss version). 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 $1.25 apiece.  I got in on a previous $5 for life deal, so the average cost per item is $0.63 for me (use code MYSUB599 to get your subscription at $5.99 per month, for life!). Some of the products were not vegetarian (to be fair, Bulu Box does not promise to provide products that fit restricted diets), which lowers the value somewhat for me, but the two food items were, the wipe will come in handy, and I was able to drink the Multiforce in water while I worked out (not a fan of plain water).

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, April 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 $1.25 per item.  If you got the $5 for life deal, you’re paying about $0.63 per item.

  1. Make sure you check your charges. They updated my $5 for life box to an automatic $10 charge without my being notified of the change!

  2. I got completely different items, that’s kind of strange.

  3. I subscribe to both weight loss and original boxes. These past fees months have been nothing but identical items! Might be cancelling one of the two since it’s not fun getting the same things !

    • Once I got the exact same box for both and they did send me a new box.

      But in general, I get 3-4 items overlapping, sometimes one is in a different flavor or scent.

  4. I didn’t get the sun butter or Myrtal supplements, but everything else. It felt pretty light this month. The nut/bean mix was a great snack. I’m using the cream for my knee.

    • There was some amount of overlap with my regular and weight loss boxes (as usual), though I did get the Sun Butter in both (I did not get the Myrtol supplement in both).
