What’s this? Why, it’s another round of What’s In That Bulu Box?!
This post contains affiliate links.
Bulu Box is a subscription box filled with health and fitness goodies. Each month you get a custom box filled with 5+ samples from top health/fitness brands. You earn points for each box you get and can get even more points for taking product surveys. You can then use said points to purchase full-sized versions of your favorite products. Some boxes are winners. Some are just ok – but I love the surprise of healthy goodies, getting to test them out, and share my thoughts with you.
The latest box wasn’t as great as the last one, but I still enjoyed trying some new-to-me goodies. Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?
Sant Dried Superfruit Beverage – These are little pieces of dried fruit that get infused into your water, adding flavor and a boost of antioxidants. Apparently, the fruit also helps promote digestion, sleep, mood, skin, manage weight, neutralize ph levels, and stabilize cholesterol. Holy moly! I added this to my water at work, and while I can’t tell you I felt all of those effects, I will say it was tasty. Would I buy it? No.
VitaPerk – VitaPerk is a 15 vitamin and mineral coffee boost that can be added to any cup of coffee. Apparently, it helps support memory, energy and heart health, and is offered in four varieties: Original, Vanilla, Hazelnut and Energy. It’s gluten free, kosher, naturally flavored and only 5 calories per serving. I tried Hazelnut in my coffee last week, and it was tasty. It gave my coffee just the right amount of flavor without added sweetness. Would I buy it? Nah. I’ll stick with my classic cup ‘o joe.
Barlean’s Omega Swirl Fish Oil – Good ‘ol Barlean’s. Good to see you in my box again, old pal. Barlean’s tends to sneak into my Bulu Box about once every 3 months or so. I don’t mind. It’s tasty. This time around I got Lemon Zest. I mixed it into my morning oats and topped it with a banana and almond butter. DELISH! Would I buy it? Nope, but only because I keep getting samples in my Bulu Box!
Calsura – Instead of hard-to-swallow calcium supplement pills, Calsura Fast Action Drink Tablets dissolve and fizz up into water, making it easy to get 50% of your daily recommended requirements for calcium and vitamin D. It’s also a good source of vitamin C, iron and magnesium. Each drink tablet can be mixed into a normal water bottle and contain no added sugar, artificial colors or preservatives. I tried the Blueberry Acai last week. It was alright, but I’m not a huge fan of fizzy flavored water to begin with. Would I but it? Nah.
Lentil Crackers – I was really excited for these gluten free crackers, but when I read the ingredient list, I realized they weren’t lactose free. Whomp whomp. Would I buy it? No.
Balance Bare – I don’t think I can have normal Balance Bars, but these new Bare Bars are gluten and soy free! WIN! Each bar is made with whole GMO free foods like nuts and real fruit. I was excited to try the Sweet & Spicy Nut Flavor that came in my box, but I gave it to AnnMarie ’cause homegirl was starving after her flight in. Would I buy it? If AnnMarie gives it a glowing review I might have to go try one. Soooo the pressure’s on you, AnnMarie!
Overall, this box was pretty underwhelming. I realize now that most of the products were meant to mixed into beverages. A conspiracy to get me to drink more?! I’m not fooled, Bulu Box. I am not fooled. Conspiracy or not, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing full sized versions of anything. Ya can’t win ’em all, right? Luckily, each box only costs $5, so I’m not all that upset about it.
If you are interested in trying Bulu Box, use my Bulu Box Ambassador code to get 50% OFF a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription! The best deal is to get a 12-month subscription, usually $110, for only $55 (that’s less than $5 a box!). Just use this link and enter BULUGAN009 at checkout. Also, all of the products that were in the latest box are currently shipping for FREE, so if you’re interested in purchasing any of them, now would be a great time to do so.
