July Bulu Box

Hello everyone.  I have discovered another monthly subscription box to feed my growing addiction.  This one is useful and good for you. Bulu Box is a monthly sample box that contains 4-5 premium vitamin and supplement nutrition samples.  These samples are for both men and women.  The cost of the service is $10 a month or $110 a year ($10 savings) which brings it down to $9.16 a month.  June was the first month for Bulu box.  I found a promo code that allowed me to get this July box for free but I did end up subscribing for the year.   

The good: 

New products: Nutritional products can be overwhelming and expensive to try.  This allows you to try new products for a low price.  

Samples sizes: The sizes are really decent.  I received multiples of a few items which will allow me to try it a couple of times. 

Information: They include a card with the product information on it. 

Access to products: There are links to purchase the products on the Bulu website

The not so good:

Skip a month: No can do, you will have to cancel. 

Contents of box.  Retail price listed in parenthesis.

Detour Lower Sugar Whey Protein Bar. value = $1.39 - The boyfriend ate this, he said the outside was messy and it got all over his hands.  The inside wasn't dry but was kind of hard.  

4 2.5g packages of Coromega Omega3+D Squeeze. value = $0.51/ea (1 box/90 packages $44.99) - not too bad, orangey tasting with a slight aftertaste.  I recommend drinking a sip of water after or mixing it with something

2 packages of OlaLoa multivitamin packets in orange and tropical. value = $1.40/ea (5 pack $6.99) - I didn't care much for the fizzy taste of this but the actualy flavors were ok. 

4 packets of Green Tea Hawaii. value = $1.17/ea (1 box/60 packets $69.95) - I expected this to be green but it was orange.  Good flavor.  I always add more water than the package says to these kinds of things because I don't like a overly strong flavor.  I enjoyed this. 

ANS Performance HIT pills 21 pills/7 day supply. value = $10.50 (90 pills/30 day supply $21.41)

The total value of my Bulu box is $21.41.  Not too shabby for a $10 investment (again this box was free with a promo code).  I know some people will be leery about the weight-loss pills which adds most of the value to this box.  My feeling on that is be smart about it, read labeling and see if it's something you want to try.  If you're iffy on it, don't take it or talk to your doctor.  Bulu also has a disclaimer about talking to your health care provider before making dietary changes. I was happy to get the Green Tea Hawaii packets because I had been wanting to try it.  I'm always looking for a good protein bar and I take fish oil pills and a multivitamin so I will just try these in place of my regular pills.

Verdict: I'm happy with the products I received.  What a fun way to try a bunch of different health products.  Great value and can't wait to see next month's box.   

**This box was free through a promo code used.  I am not any type sponsor paid or unpaid for Bulu Box.  All subsequent boxes are purchased by myself.
