January 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. I had a coupon when I ordered this subscription so I got a year for $88 which brings it down to $7.33 a box.

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.


 January Bulu Weight Loss Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price listed:

One-A-Day Fish Oil:
(1) Wiley's Finest Peak EPA Fish Oil supplement. Value = $0.67 - no fishy aftertaste!

Weight Loss Vitamin:
(1 serving) Smarty Pants Weight Management. Value = $1.60 - taste like yummy gummy candy

Feel Better Naturally:
(6) Kare-N-Herbs Kold Kare. Value = $0.28/ea.

Focused & Energized:
Xooma FocusUP Value = $1.67

Wellness In A Cup:
Helps Breathe Tea. Value = $0.27

Coupon for buy one get one free Shapeology Burn Kit. - each kit lasts 30 days and is $99.00

The total value of my Bulu box is $5.89. I am really disappointed in this months box. I expected with the new year the weight loss box would be full of weight loss stuff. Makes sense right? The smarty pants vitamins are delicious, so much so I thought about ordering some until I looked at the nutritional info. Each serving has 50 calories, 11g of carbs and 6g of fiber. I really just want my vitamins to be calorie free and while they are tasty in gummy form I will stick to a regular multivitamin.
  
Verdict: The products were't bad I just wish there was more value in the box.
