June Bulu Box Review + Giveaway

About: Bulu Box is supposed to be a box that sends you 4-5 health, weight loss, and nutritional samples each month. It only costs $10/month. You can choose between the regular Bulu Box or the Weight Loss Bulu Box. You can earn over 50 points a month just for being a subscriber and sharing your thoughts on the products that were sent to you. Shipping is free for Bulu Box. If you want to sign up for Bulu Box, please go through my referral link. Thanks!

Here is what the box looks like. It has all kinds of stuff on top of it. I'm actually surprised at the condition of the box. Just so you know, this box took almost a month from when they shipped it to get to me. I don't blame Bulu Box though, it was definitely USPS that was to blame. It ended up in Richmond, CA and after that I got no tracking information at all. Then one day, it was delivered to me.

Here is what was included in my June box. This one is definitely not stuffed to the maximum like other boxes are but that's alright. It does say 4-5 products and I got 5. I must say that this is my first time that I've ever tried supplements or anything that has to do with helping me be healthy and in shape. If you ask anyone in my family, I hate taking medicines or pills of any kind.

Probiotic Antioxident Blend (about $1.27): I'm getting all the prices off their website. So I tried this one myself. I almost choked on this, not kidding. Like I said, I don't like pills. The second time around, I had no problems with it so it must have been an error on my part. This is supposed to improve digestion and nutrient absorption, recognize good bacteria and restore proper balance, and strengthen your immune system. Well, I could not tell if it was doing anything at all. It had no negative or positive effects on me that I could tell.

BluCetin (about $2.33): This is supposed to help alcohol pass through your system faster so you don't get hungover and lessen the negative side effects of drinking. Unfortunately, we didn't get to test this. I don't drink alcohol, so only Bee could actually use it. Every time he had the opportunity to try it, he passed because his stomach wasn't feeling well. I'm pretty sure that this would not affect his stomach anymore than alcohol but I wasn't gonna force him. Hopefully this works! If it does, then we'll be buying more.

Burn Blend (about $6.22):  Out of all the products that I got, this one I was the most worried about. I've heard some bad things about pills that are supposed to help with weight loss. But I had to test it. I really don't like posting up these reviews without first testing the products. I actually had to toss one of the pills because their was way too much cotton stuck to it from the puff they put in the bottle. One thing you should also know, it was that time of the month for me when I tested this. I love it! It works great! I could totally tell my metabolism had sped up because I was more hungry throughout the day. Not only that, but it kept me from being bloated all day. So no, I won't use this for weight loss any time soon. Will I use it to keep myself from being bloated during that time of the month? Yes!

Flap Jacked Protein Pancake Mix Buttermilk (about $1): I normally love pancakes but I tested this one on Bee. He is always looking for good protein snacks and foods that he can eat before or after he works out. I was quite happy we got this in the box. It is super simple to make. You just add water and cook like a normal pancake. Bee said that it was a little bland but probably because he only put butter on it and not real butter. He is sure that if I put syrup on it, that it would taste better.

EatGreenTea (about $0.87): This is supposed to contain as much antioxidants as 30 cups of brewed green tea. As you all know, I am not a fan of green tea. I was going to test it on Bee but every time the opportunity popped up, I had forgotten to bring it with me. So I had to test it. I'm sure Bee would enjoy this but I don't. On first bite, you don't really taste anything and then the more you chew it, the more the strong green tea flavor comes out. I had it with oatmeal with bananas mixed in. If you don't like the flavor of tea, you should definitely mix it with something that will overpower it. If you do, then you should have no problem with eating this.

Overall, the value of the samples equaled to around $11.69. So it was worth more than the cost of the box. What really gives Bulu Box it's value, in my opinion, is the fact that you get to try different supplements and products. The great thing about it is that if it doesn't work, you really didn't waste any money because it's not a full size product. If it does work, then a lot of the products are at a cheaper price on their website. The true value is in their customer service. Some of the best customer service I've ever gotten, which leads me to the giveaway.

Since my box took forever to get to me, I actually contacted them about it. They said that my box had gotten lost and that they'd send me a replacement box. The replacement box came fast! I felt bad because the original one had actually made it to me. So I contacted them again to let them know what happened. Guess what? They are so awesome that they are letting me give the replacement box away to one of my readers! So a big thank you to Bulu Box for being so awesome!
