Discolsure: Through my affiliation with Fit Approach, I received a complimentary Bulu Box for purposes of this review. As always, all opinions are my own.
I’ve always been hesitant about signing up for subscription boxes. I always worry about whether or not I’ll find the items that I receive in the box useful and whether or not I’ll think I wasted my money. So when I was given the opportunity through Fit Approach to give a subscription box a try, I was extremely excited.
Bulu Boxes cost $10/month, and they offer a rewards program where you earn points each month that can be redeemed for purchasing full size versions of the item(s) that you liked from your boxes.
My Bulu Box arrived last month, and when it arrived I immediately dove into the box, excited to find out what I received. Most Bulu Boxes contain 4-5 samples that are specifically chosen for the recipient based on the online survey that you complete when you sign up for your subscription. If you like the products, then you’re able to return to Bulu’s website and order full size versions of the item(s) that you liked, sometimes at a discounted price.
I lucked out and received a 6th bonus item. The contents of my box included:
- Bugeater Foods Jump Chocolate Protein Powder
- Island Boost Blueberry-Pomegranate Energy Gel
- Yerba Prima Daily Fiber Formula
- Earth’s Core Anti-Itch Cream
- Mediterra Sundried Tomato and Basil Snack Bar
- More T-Toothbrush
The item I was most excited to try out was the Mediterra Snack Bar. I’m always on the search for healthy, easy to throw into my lunch bag, snacks, and I was excited to try out a new brand and a unique flavor without having to buy an entire box of them. While the flavor wasn’t to my liking, I still liked being able to test one out without the fear of potentially wasting money on an entire box of them.
After being bitten by a number of bugs I found a need for the Earth’s Core Anti-Itch Cream. It took care of the itch only a couple of minutes after applying it to my leg. And the best part: it didn’t have that horrible menthol scent that other anti-itch products carry.
If you’re looking for energy gels that are more liquidy than solid, then Island Boost might be a brand for you to try out. I prefer my gels to be more solid in nature, so this product just wasn’t for me.
I regularly use an electric toothbrush, but it was still good to try out another type of toothbrush. The More T-Toothbrush is unique in that its unique shape is unlike other toothbrushes. It definitely helped in removing plague that my traditionally shaped toothbrush often has difficulty reaching.
And since I’m pregnant I didn’t try the protein powder or the fiber formula.
All in all, I’m glad that I stepped outside of my comfort zone and gave a subscription box a try. And the great news is that you can sign up for a 3 month subscription for 50% off using discount code SWEATPINK. That means that each Bulu Box will only cost you $5!
