August Bulu Box - Weight Loss Box

In addition to their regular box Bulu Box also has a box focused on weight loss.  This box contains a variety of 4-5 weight loss targeting items including but not limited to supplements, fitness tools and healthy eating tools for both men and women. The cost of the box is $10 a month or $110 a year ($10 savings) which brings it down to $9.16 a month. The boxes ship around the 15th of the month so this box will arrive towards the end of every month.  This is a great way to try supplements and weight loss items without spending a ton of money.

This subscription box ships to the US only and ships from Lincoln, Nebraska. 

The good:

New products: Weight loss 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.

Points: You can earn points by reviewing products on their websites. Points can be used for discounts on full size items. I've used my points to by a protein powder I liked.

Skip a month: No but you can put your account on pause.  It will stay in that status until you reactivate it.

The not so good:

You may get products you won't use or don't want to use.  A lot of people don't like taking supplements which I totally respect but I would say this probably isn't the box for you.

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

Instant Pain Relief:

1 powder pack Urgent Rx Headache Relief to-go in lemon lime. Value = $1.25

Superfood Sprinkles:

.5 oz. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts. Value = $0.75

Burn More Calories:

2 packets Celsius Orange drink mix. Value = $1.29/ea.

Crave Control:

2 pkts with 2 servings each AEN Liv. Value = $1.00/ea.

Delicious Meal Replacement:

Garden of Life RAW Organic Meal in Vanilla Spiced Chai. Value = $2.83

Training:

Charlotte Dodson Yoga TV 1 month subscriptions. Value = $19.95

The total value of my Bulu box is $31.36. I'm really curious about the headache powder. At first I thought you mixed it with water but you just ingest it from the packet. If you've ever tasted an aspirin pill you know they are super bitter. I hope this lemon lime headache reliever powder isn't bitter. More hemp hearts, I'm kinda over the whole trying hemp thing. The orange drink mixes are pretty good. They add a nice flavor to water. I've tried appetite control pills before and they don't work for me so I don't know about this Liv product. The spiced chai meal replacement sounds delicious! I love anything chai. I went onto the Charlotte Dodson site and they offer a 7 day free trial. So really you could get five weeks of yoga with this gift card. Not a bad deal. I have fitness television and have been recording yoga programs from that. I have tried doing exercises by streaming them from my iPad or laptop and I find it very difficult to view and do the exercise.
  
Verdict: This was an ok box for me because I'm not sure I will use the yoga tv or hemp hearts. 

If anyone wants to try a Bulu Box send me an email at pixiepowered@hotmail.com and I'll send you a link for a free box.
