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.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Bulu Box Weight Loss, $10 a month, box.

Bulu Box Weight Loss June 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.

Styr Electrolytes in Lemon Lime –

Styr Electrolytes in Lemon Lime – Buy 10 Packets for $7.95

This is from the same company that makes the fitness tracker everyone received last month. This has natural colors and flavors, which is great, and the calories are pretty low (only 15). I’m not wild about the stevia flavor although I guess that’s what keeps the calories down.

This item was also sent in this month's Bulu Box.

InvigoFlex GS Glucosamine Sulfate + Boswellia Serrata (2 capsules x 2) – Buy 60 Capsules for $29.95 (found here for $23.99)

Well, this is nice for a change – a vegetarian glucosamine supplement (usually they are not). Glucosamine can be good for the joints (I give some to my Rottweiler Nyx, though not this brand, every day!). As for Boswellia, WebMD says it is likely safe for up to six months and that it is possibly effective for osteoarthritis, and honestly, that is practically a ringing endorsement considering what WebMD usually says about herbal supplements. This didn’t cause any negative effects when taken but this sort of supplement really needs to build up in your system before you evaluate the results.

Vitamin Friends Vegan Iron Gummies (4 count)

Vitamin Friends Vegan Iron Gummies (4-count) – Buy 60 Gummies for $24.99

These are vegan so I ate one. Apparently, they are supposed to be strawberry flavored, which was not apparent (there was something sort of fruity about them, I guess). The gummy texture was decent, although since I am vegetarian I have not eaten a “real” (i.e., gelatin) gummy for 25 years. I would not advise just giving your kids iron unless an MD recommends it, but if they do need it, this would probably go over better than some big pill.

This item was also sent in this month's Bulu Box.

Party Pal (3 tablets) – Buy 5, 3-tablet Packs for $11.95

This item is supposed to promote natural hangover relief. It has some B vitamins and vitamin C and some plant extracts including dried banana puree (?) as well as succinic acid and fumaric acid, which are intermediates in the tricarboxylic acid cycle that is part of cellular respiration (in other words, already present in every cell of your body…). At any rate, I don’t get hangovers because I don’t drink, so I’m just going to pass this along to someone who might get more use out of it.

Abundant Earth Mint 100% Peppermint Oil (

Abundant Earth Mint 100% Peppermint Oil (sample) – Buy 0.5 fl oz for $20

This little guy fell out of the card and I had to go digging through the tissue paper in the box to find it, so if your card looks empty, you probably actually did get this! It is peppermint oil and can be used in a diffuser (what I did) or diluted with an appropriate carrier to be used in making homemade beauty products. (The website associated with this product is, um, interesting. In an unorganized, stream-of-consciousness sort of way. You can order up some psychotherapy and some peppermint oil in the same place…)

This item was also sent in this month's Bulu Box.

Mary Jo Cell Candy Revitalizing and Purifying Toner (3.3 fl oz) – Retail Value $23.95

This is an alcohol-free toner. I think they need to hire a science consultant for their website, though, because they get a lot of things wrong. “Sodium pyroglutamic” is not a proper way to refer to the compound, and pyroglutamic acid is not the same thing as proline at all. The fact that this has sodium lactate means that it has lactic acid in it, which is an alpha hydroxy acid, which is a chemical peel ingredient, so you need to be sure to use sunscreen when you are using this. Sodium cocoyl glutamate contains an amino acid, but is not just an amino acid – it has a fatty component which is part of what makes it work as a foaming agent. And so on. Anyway, for me, this doesn’t really perform much like a toner at all, it is more along the lines of a K-beauty essence (not necessarily surprising based on the ingredients).

Xlear Nasal Spray (sample) – Buy 1.5 fl oz for $14.99 (found here for $9.96)

This is a saline nasal spray with xylitol, which is supposed to make it more soothing (and possibly provide antibacterial benefit) than plain saline spray. Unfortunately, this also contains grapefruit seed extract (a “natural” preservative, I guess). I once tried a similar product with grapefruit seed extract and it took 20 minutes for me to stop violently sneezing, so I have avoided that ingredient in nasal sprays ever since (I am just getting over bronchitis and I don’t need any more disruptions to my respiratory system). It is worth trying this once when you are well so you can gauge your reaction, because I doubt that’s the case for everyone, and salt sprays can help if your nasal passages are particularly dried out.

This item was also sent in this month's Bulu Box.

Verdict: There were seven samples this month. If you paid the $10 a month full price for this subscription, including free shipping, you paid about $1.43 each. I have the $5 for life deal, so I paid about half that, or $0.72 per sample. I was pleased with the number of vegetarian supplements this month. I do have to admit, I have no idea what this has to do with weight loss, but that is a feeling I have nearly every month. I do feel that the contents of this box were pretty representative for this subscription.

I’d strongly recommend using our MYSUB799 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. (In fact, this month’s Bulu Box Weight Loss version had four overlapping products with the regular Bulu Box.) 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…). It’s partly because they stopped selling most of the samples in their shop and instead send you to Amazon (with a referral link).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, July 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 MYSUB799 to get your subscription at $7.99 per month, for the lifetime of the subscription!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $10 + free shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $1.43.

we are box twins on this box, too. 🙂
so how are you using the toner? after washing your face do you just put it on a cotton pad and do like you do with toner and then follow with moisturizer? or…
i haven’t tried mine yet, so the heads up would be great!

thank you for reviewing these boxes!

I tried it as toner first but I didn’t really feel that it *toned.* It was more moisturizing than that, at least for me. (I think I need prefer harsher/stronger toners.) So then I used a whole bunch of it on one of those mask pellet things from Zenpop Beauty Pack and that was all right. I may finish it off that way since I have a few of those left.

This is what I got in my box but I subscribe to the regular one. Weird!

There was a lot of overlap this month.
