Review: Bulu Box November

Reviewer: Anne Cone

When I found out I was getting the opportunity to review Bulubox, I was incredibly excited. I’ve recently started hearing about subscription boxes everywhere.  Companies charge you a monthly fee and send you a box full of goodies to try. You get to discover items that revolve around your interests, with the bonus of getting mail every month!

Bulu Box was the first subscription box geared towards health, fitness, and weight loss. Every month they send out a fun orange box filled with 4-5 premium samples that help you feel your best - some samples are from well known companies, some are from new to the market brands. All samples are chosen to help you discover amazing products that you might just fall in love with. The best part about these boxes is that you get to try before you buy!

Bulu Box offers two different types of boxes. The first is the original Bulu Box. In this box, you’ll find a wide variety of samples that are health and nutrition related. The best part is that you never know quite what you’re going to get each month, and you often receive samples that  you never would have thought to try on your own. Bulu calls this box a “feel good discovery”.

The second box option is the Weight Loss Box. All the samples in this box are chosen for their ability to aid you on your weight loss journey. Both boxes contain the 4-5 samples; as a bonus, Bulu often includes special offer coupons good towards full size products purchased on their website (

For this review, I chose the Original Bulu Box. When I saw the mailman take out the orange box I ran outside to grab it from him! With a box that is as unique as this, its hard not to get excited about what's inside.

All of the items were wrapped in vibrant orange tissue paper. Its just as fun as opening a birthday gift! My Bulu Box contained 5 good size samples, plus two information cards about the products.

I was incredibly excited to see Flapjacked Protein Pancakes in my box! I have heard wonderful things about these from friends. This mix comes in three different flavors (Buttermilk, Cinnamon Apple, and Banana Hazelnut which is seen here). This pancake mix takes an old favorite and puts a healthy spin on it by being high in fiber and fortified with protein. As a mom of three, I am trying hard to eat healthier and I am so looking forward to having pancakes for breakfast again! A full size 28 ounce package retails for $18.99.

How cool is this product? Rootology is a natural alternative to over the counter allergy medication. It is formulated with different herbal extracts to relieve runny nose, congestion, itchy eyes, and sinus pressure! I am most excited about this for my husband, who has suffered with terrible allergies for as long as he can remember. Now that we live in a dry and dusty area, he will be incredibly grateful to lay off the OTC meds and try something natural. A bottle of 40 capsules retails for $14.99.

Im a sucker for anything chocolate, so I almost didn’t care what this product did if it was delicious. The good news is that not only does it taste great, but it is also meant to use its vitamins and natural ingredients to boost beautiful, firmer skin from the inside out. The box contained one chew, but I can confidently say that as good as they taste I wouldn’t mind eating one a day to look for a difference! A bag of 60 chews retails for $19.95.

This product made me squeal a little with delight. My favorite thing as a kid was getting to take a gummy vitamin - I remember thinking that I was getting away with something when I got to eat “candy” in the morning. Someone very smart took that idea and ran with it straight to the adult vitamin aisle. Not only are these Smarty Pants vitamins incredibly good (I absolutely ripped into them straight after this picture was taken), but they are also a great source of Vitamin D, they contain no High Fructose Corn Syrup, they are gluten free, and they are naturally flavored. A bottle of 120 retails for $29.95, and contains a mix of Lemon, Orange, and Strawberry Banana flavors.

More chocolate! Slimming Smoothie portion packs are meant to be a great on-the-go snack that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates and calories. You just mix with water or milk - the pack is pre-measured so no need to deal with that when you’re on the go. Slimming Smoothies are sweetened with stevia and gluten free as well. These will be great for those days that I do errands and cannot get home to make a snack - or, on days when the kids won't give me time to eat! A box of 12 portion packs retails for $39.99, and comes in Chocolate Truffle or Vanilla Bean.

Unwrapping my Bulu Box was the most fun I’ve had all week. I love getting things in the mail, especially when there are surprises inside! All of the products that come in Bulu Boxes are available to purchase on their website, in full sizes. The other thing that I learned about Bulu Box is that you earn points that can be spent like cash on full size products! When you sign up for a subscription you receive points that are kept in your account bank. In addition, you earn points for every review you leave on their website of products in your boxes. Every 50 Rewards Points = $5 to spend on products. That can add up quickly, especially when you shop their sales.

Bulu Box also gave me a coupon code to share with our readers. If you go to and use the code BULUGAN589 you will receive 50% off any subscription! A year of boxes is currently $110 - if you use the 50% code you will only pay $55 for an entire year of Bulu Boxes delivered to your door once a month. That equals out to around $4.50  a box, and that is a GREAT deal. Also, Bulu Box makes a fun and unique gift, and it is something that will continue to make someone smile for an entire year!

Bulu Box is a fun and inventive way to discover new health and fitness products. I have often walked into a health store and been overwhelmed by my options (and the prices). With Bulu, I can try a few things at a time and get great discounts on the things that I love - and not waste money if the product isn't for me.
