If you have been around Budget Earth for awhile, you know I am someone who focuses quite a bit on my health. While I may not have been the healthiest in my youth, I have been striving to not only lose weight, but increase my overall activity and address my health needs. I have always been reluctant to try most dietary and vitamins supplements since there are so many on the market and they always come in huge containers. Like most people, my husband and I live on a budget, meaning we can't dump $20 – $60 on something we can't guarantee will work.
Like me, you probably also spend quite a bit of time on other blogs – reading articles, tips, recipes, and sometimes even reviews. Even before I started Budget Earth, I was fascinated with the idea of a subscription box. I really wanted to know how they worked, but very few people seemed to actually focus on how they worked – just a quick opinion of how the items worked. Luckily, my curiosity was satisfied when I had a chance to try out the Bulu Box for review through a Tomoson.com. If you were as curious as me about the Bulu Box – I think you will love this review!
Bulu Box: What Is It & How It Works
For those who haven't heard of this subscription box, the Bulu Box is a monthly subscription box that sends a sample of different vitamins, supplements, and health products. They advertise themselves as the best way to discover vitamins, health supplements, and different healthy products. The whole goal of this box is to introduce you to different products that will help you feel amazing. Within each box, you will find four to five different samples of premium products. While they aren't full size products, they give you a taste or general idea about the product to see if it's a good fit for you.
As well, the Bulu box doesn't charge you shipping or extra fees, allowing you to have new products right at your door for as little as $10 a month. What also intrigued me about the Bulu box is that you have the potential to get full sized products by turning in points you get for being part of their community, which includes reviewing products, sharing them through social media, and doing short surveys. Since these products are designed to be for men and women, you can get a full spectrum of reviews that allow you to see what other thought of products – including products from Bulu boxes you didn't personally receive.
Bulu Box: What's Inside
If you are one of my Youtube subscribers, you probably saw my teaser for the March Bulu Box. My first box was actually unique since it contained items not only for the traditional Bulu Box, but their new weight loss supplement box. I will be honest, I was pretty hyped up about this box. I really wanted to try a subscription box and I was anxiously watching the mailbox. When it arrived, I was happy to find the follow products.
- Pineapple Flavored Dream Water
- QSpeed CoQ10 100 MG
- Prolab Quick Fire Supplement
- Red Remedies atEase PM
- AeroShot Energy
- $50 iTrain Gift Card
Before I go any further, I want to make it very clear to everyone that some of the items in this box I loved, while others I couldn't find a positive thing to say about them. The purpose of the Bulu Box is not to give everyone products they will love, but allow you to experiment with a wide range of products without spending a huge amount of money buying full size bottles.

Bulu Box: Prolab Quick Fire Supplement
I have heard quite a few people online rave about this product. Many bloggers have said it really helped their exercise routine. In the advertisement that came with my Bulu box, it claimed it could bring your workout to the next level by giving your body the extra nutrients it needs.
Like many exercise supplements, you mix this supplement in water and take it 20 to 30 minutes before your working. I can't tell you how well it is for working out since I couldn't get past the taste. The fruit punch flavor was so artificial that it tasted nothing like fruit punch. It tasted more like chalky tutti frutti flavor. I tried drinking it and eventually had to just give up because the texture and taste turned my stomach. Based on the taste and texture alone – I was very disappointed in this product. Since I could not test its effects as an exericse supplement, however, I can't give it a fair review.
Bulu Box AeroShot Energy
I'll be honest, I probably should have contacted Bulu Box about this sample. I'm pretty certain my AeroShot Energy shot was a dud that came from the manufacturer. It just won't shoot and doesn't seem to have any air in it. I played with it for about a half hour and eventually gave up. For this reason, I am going to be fair to AeroShot Energy and not give a review of this product.

Bulu Box: Opinion of Box Itself
While the Bulu Box itself had mix results when it came to products, I think it did exactly what it was meant to do – allow me to try a variety of products without spending much money. While I got mine for free, I think it is a great value! I am seriously considering signing up for a membership box myself since I enjoyed my first so much. As for my own personal rating system, I give it an A – its a great value for those of us on a budget and introduces everyone to some amazing products!
