September Bulu Box

Have you heard of Bulu Box yet?  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. This is a great way to try supplements and health type foods without spending a ton of money.  

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.

1.5 oz. OSTrim Beef & Elk snack stick. Value = $1.67 - This had an odd aftertaste.  It wasn't bad but honestly it had a faint soap taste.  weird huh?

1 packet Neuro Edge mental focus powder red energy flavor. Value = $1.00 (30 pk $29.99)

1 packet Neuro Edge mental focus powder lemonade flavor. Value = $1.00 (30 pk $29.99)

3 packets Hawaiian Coconut Energy powder. Value = $1.32/ea (60 pk box $79.99) - The directions say mix with 8-16 oz. of water. I mixed this with a 16.9 oz. bottle of water and I'm sure glad I did because it's pretty sweet.  It's not sticky sugary sweet but it's coconutty sweet.  It was a nice additive to the water but my energy level didn't feel any different. 

60 ct (30 day supply) Swanson Razberri-Ketones. Value = $3.79

2.5 oz. bottle (2.5 servings) Octane Liquid endurance shot. Value = $5.00 (12 pack $60.00) - This was really ick!  I know this sounds weird but it tasted like tuna.  I tried to like it but ended up tossing it. 


The total value of my Bulu box is $13.78.  I decided to make the yearly commitment so my price was $9.16.  Even if you do monthly at $10 it's still a good deal.  Raspberry Ketones are all the rage now since Dr. Oz did a little spiel about them on his show.  I've tried them but was really bad about taking them consistantly.  I will try and be good about taking them twice a day and see if they make a difference.  I'm really excited about the snack stick.  I'll be honest, I totally hid this from the boyfriend because I wanted to try it and I knew if he saw it he would eat it all.  The octane drink is odd because a serving is 1 ounce and this is a 2.5 oz. bottle.  How am I suppose to know what 1 ounce is and a 1/2 serving that's kind of dumb.      

Verdict: I'm really enjoying my Bulu boxes.  They send a nice variety of products to try.

  1. Ugh - we hate it too when you can't pause your account. That's why we're working around the clock to create a "pause my account" button! We can't make it fast enough.

    Thanks for the rad review and if you want to pause the account, just drop an email to Hello@BuluBox.com and tell them when you'd like it paused until :)

    We try our best to take care of our Bulugans like you :)
