Smarty Pants Gummy Vitamins for Adults and Kids – Retail Value $1.53 each
We get these a lot in my boxes and we use them. They are okay and have a nice balance of vitamins and Omega 3s, but it has an aftertaste that I do not like.

Ridge Crest Herbals Anxiety Free - Sample

FitMiss Burn – Sample

This is a sample I would have liked to see in a bigger size because it is so hard to tell if it works for you with just one serving size.

bulu box review weight loss Power Crunch French Vanilla Protein Bar - Sample

I tried their bars before. The French Vanilla is my least favorite, but the others are really tasty.

Hemp Pro70- Sample

This is a natural hemp protein powder. It is flavorless which makes it great to mix into your yogurt.

Thoughts: This box was not really up there in value, but I subscribed using a 50% off code and do my reviews. Reviews are 10pts each and 50 pts is the same as $5 to spend in the shop, so I am basically getting my boxes free. I find that the boxes improve the more you complete reviews and subscribe (I only recently renewed my subscription.

Rootology Breathe Free - Retail Value $1.90

I had these in a previous box and was excited to get them because I suffer from allergies. Unfortunately, I did not really notice any differences in my allergies using it.

NuvaTrim Gourmet Weightloss Coffee – Retail Value $2.53

I know a lot of people would like for their coffee to help them lose weight! I am not much of a coffee drinking, but I will need to give this a try.

bulu box review

VanaPain PM in Strawberry – Retail Value $3.20

This is a sleep aid and pain reliever. I think this is supposed to help after those really tough “Biggest Loser” type workouts. Sleep aids make me nervous, so I will pass this on to my mother who seems to always be achy and have difficulty sleeping.

Body Glove Surge Energy Gel in Chocolate – Retail Value $2.99

I get these in my fitness boxes frequently. I never use them because I don’t like the taste.

bulu box review

K-Pax Energy (30 pills) – Retail Value $22.46

This is a multivitamin, mood elevator and energy pill in one. This is a very generous sample too.

Havvn Go Stick in Orange Mango - Retail Value $2.16

This is supposed to increase energy, but also help make you more beautiful from the inside out, I am assuming from vitamins, minerals and hydration. It tastes pretty good and does help with energy.

Thoughts: The value of this box is really good at just over $35. I paid only $5 for this box and I will get $5 in points for my reviews, so I am pretty much getting the box for free! That is one thing that I really love about this subscription. The values and the samples aren’t always great, but I love the point system and the fact they have a lot of deals on subscriptions!

Me Strength Drink Mix - Retail Value $1.17 each

This drink mix has 0 calories, carbs, sugars or stimulants. It’s pretty delicious too!

Mango Peach Barlean Fish Oil To-Go – Retail Value $0.48

One thing I hate about taing fish oil is the overly fishy taste, so anything that helps lessen that is a welcome product for me to try.

bulu box weight loss review december

Mediterranean Snacks Tapas To-Go – Retail Value $2.99

I love hummus and lentil chips, so I was excited to bring this to work with me, but the lentil-to-hummus ratio was way off and I practically had the whole tub of hummus left. Next time I try this, I will probably bring baby carrots with me.

Creative Bioscience 30 Day Diet - Retail Value $34.95 (Full-Size!)

I was so excited to get this full-size product in the box. When I first subscribed, I was hoping there would be more products like this in each box so whenever I do get a such a product, I get really excited.

Thoughts: The total value of this box was $40.76 which is incredible considering I paid only $5 for the box (I used a 50% discount on my subscription). I loved all the samples and am impressed with the full-size product in the box. My last box in my subscription is in January and I think I will be getting an annual subscription to Bulu Box!

Bulu Box Weight Loss Review November 2013

bulu box weight loss review

My Bulu box weight loss subscription always surprises me with the variety of products. Some of them I really appreciate discovering, while others are not as memorable for me. So far, this was one of the best boxes I’ve gotten from them so far.

bulu box weight loss review november

The Cost: $10 a month

The Products: Bulu Box offers a regular fitness box as well as a weight loss subscription box. You can expect 4 – 6 different samples and supplements each month. You can read my past Bulu Box reviews here.

Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil – Retail Value $0.50

Natural Miracles Menstrual Magic – Retail Value $1.30

bulu box weight loss review november

Mudd and Wyeth YaffBar – Retail Value $3

Energems in Mint Fusion – Retail Value $1.70

I thought the Yaff car was such an unique concept. I don’t have any pets to test it on, but my daughter and I both enjoyed it.

I see a lot of energy products on the market, but mint chocolate treats is a new one for me. Normally, I steer clear of anything like this, but I was just too curious. I was satisfied with how it helped wake me up in the morning.

bulu box weight loss review november

Gimme Cheddar Cheese Roasted Seaweed Crumbles – Retail Value $1.70

I love crunchy seaweed as a healthy snack for my daughter and myself, so I was so happy to find this in the box. We gobbled these up immediately.

Thoughts: The total value of the box was only just over $8 so it did not have the best value, but I did enjoy the products as a whole much more than previous boxes. I would like it if more boxes were like this with larger samples – but maybe with at least one more product or with one high value product to push the value up just a bit more.

What did you think of the Bulu weight loss box this month? If you got the original box, what did you get in yours?

Bulu Box Weight Loss Review October 2013 – Fitness Subscription Box

I am finding that the more boxes I get from Bulu Box, the more I enjoy their samples. I was really excited to get my box this month and see what new weight loss products they had to sample.

The Cost: $10 a month, including shipping. They regularly have promotions to get subscriptions at half off.

The Coupon: TWEET10 will get you one free box.

The Products: Bulu Box focuses on fitness and active lifestyles. They offer a standard fitness box and a box focused on weight loss. I currently subscribe to their Weight Loss Box. You can read my past Bulu Box reviews here.

Rootology Nasal Health – Value $1.70 for 4 pills

This product is actually created to help prevent nasal congestion and provide allergy relief. I am not entirely sure how it fits with weight loss except perhaps to help with any outdoor allergies which are worse in cold weather and may deter you from going outside to work out. I suffer from pretty bad allergies, so I am pleased to try them out nonetheless.

Body 360 Burn 360 – Value $3.60 for 2 pills
Natural Vitality Calm Drink in Raspberry-Lemon

I heard of Body 360 before on television, so it will be interesting to see if the claims are true!

I tried the Natural Vitality drink before and while I didn’t necessarily feel more calm, it was delicious!

NeoCell Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews in Chocolate Mint 
Pocket Protein Formulated for Women in Strawberry – Value $2.99

Beauty Bursts are supposed to help add and hydrate collagen to strengthen skin, hair and nails. It is supposed to beautify you from the inside out. I got Beauty Bursts in my very first Bulu Box and received two samples. This month there was only one. With a product like this, I really would have enjoyed a full or deluxe sample size to get an idea of how it works. It does taste good though!

I had to hide the Pocket Protein from my daughter otherwise she would have thought it was a snack for her! After trying it, I really did like it and as it turns out, you can actually get another sample for free on their website.

Thoughts: This was a pretty good month for Bulu Box. I discovered two products I really liked and got the chance to re-sample some old favorites.

Bulu Weight Loss Review September 2013 – Weight Loss Subscription Box

Bulu recently had a deal to get your subscription for half off and there was no way I could turn down an offer like that! I immediately signed up for a 6- month subscription, but now I wish I just committed to the full year!

The Cost: $10 a month, including shipping

The Coupon: TWEET10 gets the first box free!

The Products: Bulu has two boxes for you to choose: Original and Weight Loss, both offer fitness samples, but the Weight Loss box is geared specifically to fitness samples that are believed to help with weight loss. You can switch between the boxes any time during your subscription. You can read my Bulu Box reviews to see what you can expect in a typical subscription

Simple Being Slimming Smoothie in Vanilla Bean – 1 packet, Value $4
Body Glove Surge Chocolate Energy Gel – 1 packet – Value $3

I had the shake for breakfast and I was pleasantly surprised at the taste. Usually, I stay away from vanilla protein powder because the taste is too sweet and artificial, but this was definitely not as sweet as other. Plus, it’s only 1 carb!

I am not a huge fan of the Body Glove Surge products, but I could certainly tell that it is effective in giving you more energy from the times I have tried it.

Thirty30 Enliven in Pure Lemon – 1 packet, Value $2
BSN AMINOx – 1 serving, Value $1
My workout of choice is kickboxing, so anything that gives me an extra boost of energy and endurance is worth trying!

Erba Vita Propolus Sooting Syrup – Value $.60

I wish I had a larger sample of this product because I am very curious as to how well it works. I cannot run in winter because I have weather-related asthma, but I imagine this coupled with my inhaler would help make it easier to do a light winter jog every so often.

Thoughts: This was a pretty decent box. I actually liked the smoothie sample and may try it in another flavor. I definitely like the brands featured in the Bulu boxes, but still wish we were able to have one larger sample in each box!

Bulu Box Weight Loss Review August 2013 – Health & Fitness Subscription Box

Bulu Box is a health and fitness subscription box that offers two subscriptions services: a regular fitness subscription, and a subscription that focuses on weight loss. After getting my first two Bulu boxes, I decided I needed to get a longer subscription to get a better feel of the subscription service and got a 6-month subscription during their summer sale.

The Cost: $10 a month, including shipping

The Coupon: Use code FIRSTFREE or TWEET10 to get your first box free!

The Products: Bulu is a fitness and weight loss subscription box that sends out 4 – 5 fitness or weight loss nutritional supplements and samples. Check out my past Bulu Box reviews here.

As you may notice, this was the exact same box I received back in June!

Power Fuel Formula 52 Protein Powder – Value $1

PowerIce - Vaue $1.50
I love the Power Ice for summer workouts! It is tasty and great for hydration when outside running under the hot, summer sun.

GU Chomps Pure Performance Energy Chews in Strawberry – Value $2
Thera-Gesic Pain Relieving Cream – Value $0.20
EatGreenTea - Value $0.50

Gu Chomps are my favorite just for the taste alone! Plus, of course, they are great for pre- and post-workouts.

Shapeology Burn Blend - Value $11.50

Thoughts: Although I have already received this box before, I am still happy to have it because I loved the samples the first time and love the chance to have them again! I also love that Bulu has a similar point system as Birchbox which allows me to get full-size products at a reduced price.

What do you think about Bulu? Although I am fine with getting a duplicate box, what would you do in this situation?

Bulu Box Review June 2013 – Fitness Subscription Box


Last month, I tried the Weight Loss Bulu box, and although I liked the samples I received, I did not feel as though many of the products were particularly geared toward weight loss in the way I expected. I decided to  try out the regular Bulu Box this month to compare.

The Cost: $10 a month, including shipping

The Coupon: Use code FIRSTFREE or TWEET10 to get your first box free!

The Products: 4 – 5 fitness or weight loss nutritional supplements and samples. Check out my past Bulu Box reviews here.

At a glance, I am already happy with this box. I can already see that I received more than the 5 samples they promise in the box which is great!

GU Chomps Pure Performance Energy Chews in Strawberry – Value $2
Power Fuel Formula 52 Protein Powder – Value $1

I knew that GU was featuring in the box from their advertisements on Facebook. I thought these were incredibly delicious and I may buy the full-size version

Thera-Gesic Pain Relieving Cream – Value $0.20
EatGreenTea – Value $0.50

Pain relieving creams rub me the wrong way (pun not completely intended). I don’t think I will be using it, but I am sure someone else in the house will at some point.

I am really interested in the EatGreenTea which is a powdered green tea you add to your food to give is a concentrated antioxidant boost. I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, but I can’t wait!

PowerIce – Vaue $1.50
Shapeology Burn Blend – Value $11.50

The thought of a sports ice pop genuinely excites me! I think this is great for a post-work re-hydrate treat out in the summer heat!

I liked the sample size of the Burn Blend. Unlike many of their other samples, this is enough for a few days to try out. The bottle says to take one or two pills in the morning and one to two pills in the afternoon. I took one in the morning, and I think that was enough for me for the day! I felt a lot more energized, but I also felt my heart beating a little too fast at time. This was a little scary, so I don’t know if I will be keeping these.

Thoughts: Overall, I think this box was decent. According to my calculations, the total value of the box is almost $17, which is pretty good. I really think that is a subscription that really requires at least three to six month from each category to get a true feel for the company – at least for me.

What did you think about the regular June Bulu box? If you decided to get the Weight Loss box this month, what did you get?

Bulu Box Weight Loss – May 2013 Review

I’ve been searching around for a good fitness/weight loss centered subscription box for a while when I stumbled across Bulu Box who offered a general fitness box as well as a weight loss box. Both Bulu boxes are $10 a month, so I thought it would be a safe investment to try out for the first time. Plus, if you follow them on twitter, they will give you a coupon code for your first box free!

The Cost: $10 a month, including shipping

The Products: Bulu sends out between 4 – 5 fitness supplement samples each month.

They sent information about the company and information about the products including prices for full-sized versions you can find at their store. On the other side of the product guide is a little journal for you to track how you feel before and after taking each sample which is pretty neat.

Beauty Bursts which contains Collagen Type 1&3 to help rebuild skin, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin and Vitamin C for collagen enhancing. They only gave you two chews, so it might not be enough to really feel a difference.


Fit ‘n Crisp Promax vanilla crispy treat – I am really excited to try this tomorrow as my mid-morning snack at work. It is gluten-free and high in protein to keep me fuller for longer. 


Gym Pact $5 gift card

I never heard of Gym Pact before, but looking into it, I think it is a great fit for the Bulu weight loss box. Using this would definitely motivate me to go to the gym more often!

Thoughts: Overall, I am pleased with the box, but a little underwhelmed by the small samples. I do wish the samples were a little bigger so I could get a better idea of how I feel about each brand.
