Bulu Box Review

When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle most of us rely to some degree or another, on a variety of supplements — Protein powders, probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, workout boosters, sleep enhancers, anti-inflammatories  … Our individual choices will reflect our specific needs and those of our families.

What's Inside a Bulu Box title image

I received a Bulu Box to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

If you’ve got picky eaters who refuse to eat their green veggies, chances are you’ll be adding a greens powder to their breakfast smoothie.

Each member of my family has different needs: I love to drink a protein smoothie after my morning workouts, while my hubby enjoys a pre-workout drink before cranking up the heat on his bi-weekly bike rides.  With my second daughter having recently decided to eat a vegan diet I have been on a hunt for the perfect vegan protein powder and have added some nutritional yeast to our supplements list.

I shop several times a week choosing the freshest and cleanest ingredients I can find  and cook most of our meals from scratch, but we do supplement.  Thankfully with the increased awareness of the benefits of all these supplements we have a lot of options to choose from.

In fact we have so many choices that finding the right product can be quite a challenge. Walk into any health food store and unless you know exactly you want, you can quickly become overwhelmed!

How do you know which product is the best?

If you’re like me you’ll take some time doing research at home, read reviews, consult with your personal trainer or other health expert, read labels and ask questions of the health food store staff.  Then you’ll choose a product or two, and give them a try. Sometimes you end up really happy with your choice, other time not so happy.

There are a few problems with this:

  • It takes a lot of time
  • It can quickly become very costly!
  • You end up wasting a lot or consuming a product you don’t really care for because you’ve made such a heavy investment

There has to be a better way.

And there is 🙂 The Bulu Box, tada!

What is a Bulu Box you ask?

Bulu Box is the first health, nutrition and weight loss discovery box designed to help you feel your best. Each month, you’ll get a custom box filled with a new mix of 4 to 5 premium samples from top brands to try. Every sample is sufficient enough to decide if the product is right for you.”

I was recently invited to review a Bulu Box through my Sweatpink community and received my very first Bulu box a few weeks ago.

My box was filled with these samples

  • Yerba Prima dietery fiber
  • 2 packs Peanut Butter Protein poder
  • Movit Energy gummies
  • Mediterra sundried tomato and basil snack bar
  • Earth’s Care anti-itch cream

As you can see I received a nice variety of products, most of which were completely new to me.

I was excited to discover the Yerba Prima Daily Fiber Formula. Dietary fiber is such an important part of a healthy diet and yet far too many of us rarely get sufficient fiber through food alone. Most people should supplement and Yerba Prima is a fabulous choice. It’s easy to add to your morning smoothie. The sample I received was orange flavored so you can simply add it to a glass of water.  I prefer no flavor so I can add it to whatever I like but I did not mind the orange flavor at all, though I detected the stevia, and that is a taste I do not care for. It wasn’t strong enough to keep me from using this product though.

I have to be honest, I wasn’t super excited about the Quest protein powder, simply because I’m not a huge fan of their protein bars. In fact, that’s why I’ve never bought their protein powder in the past.

But that’s the beauty of a BuluBox 🙂

I decided to give the Quest powder a try a few days ago when I was in need of a fast breakfast. I added one packet to 8 ounces of almond milk and ran out the door, smoothie in hand.  And I was blown away!

I found myself sipping a delicious, creamy smoothie, expecting that all too familiar bitter after taste and being pleasantly surprised when I did not experience it.

That’s two thumbs up for the BuluBox right there.

Mvoi energy gummies and Mediterra sundred tomato snack bar

During a recent sea kayaking expedition, hubby who was eager for a hardcore workout, enjoyed the Movit energy gummy and I was thrilled to discover a delicious cereal bar. Again the sundried tomato and basil, though an intriguing combination, is probably not one I would have chosen at my health food store but I was thrilled it came in my BuluBox as it was delicious!

Every Bulu Box is different so you never know what you’re going to get, but it makes finding new favorites fun and super cost effective. If you like something in the box, you can purchase it directly from the Bulu Box website and enjoy a nice discount. That’s another thumbs up for Bulu Box because let’s face it, health supplements are pricey.

How could Bulu Box be better?

As you know I’m a strong advocate for super healthy supplements — non GMO, organic ingredients, HFCS free….  I would love a Box filled with nothing but samples that meet my strict criteria because in the end, those are the products I end up buying on a regular basis.

  1. Robin Masshole mommy says:

    I really let myself go this summer and NEED to get back on track. This sounds like it would be perfect for me!

    • Haha, you and so many of us Robin! Yep summer means a little relaxing and that’s good for the soul 🙂 I think you’ll love Bulu Box and how easy it makes finding the supplements you need to support your journey back to the fit and fabulous mom you are!

  2. It sounds like a great collection of products to try out. I am always on the hunt for extra protein and extra fiber.

  3. These look really cool. I have never gotten a Bulu Box before, but might consider it now.

  4. I love boxes with samples like this. You never know what you’ll get and what you’ll end up loving.

  5. I’ve not heard of Bulu Box before. The hubby and I grow 85% of what we eat and I make about 10% of the rest. We do try to eat as healthy a diet as we can. We don’t take any supplements other than a basic multivitamin and I take calcium.

  6. It must be awesome discovering new products with each box. I’d be most excited about the supplements each time.

  7. That would be great for my husband! I have too many restrictions I think, but he’d love it.

  8. Never heard of Bulu Boxes! Id like to give it a try

  9. My sister would love this. She is into healthy/organic products, thinking Christmas gift idea!

  10. Wonderful review! I have tried this company in the past and loved my experience, so I definitely need to sign up again.

  11. Interesting idea and I love you get multiple samples of different products to try out. Much better than spending $20 more on something you won’t like. I’ve been looking at these subscription boxes and so far everyone has good reviews on them.

  12. My husband and I have been discussing how we can start on our journey to be healthier. This sounds like it is just what we are looking for.
