April & May Bulu Box Review

If you’ve been around running blogs lately, you may have seen a badge that looks similar to this one:

That’s right, folks, I am now a Bulu Box Ambassador!

Besides telling you about it, I’m going to show you, too!

Here I have 2 boxes – one from April and one from May…cause two is always better than one! :0)


April Box


Inside the April box was an array of goodies!

Cocoa Via x 4 samples – Sweetened Dark Chocolate, Cran-Raspberry, Summer Citrus, and Unsweetened Dark Chocolate
CocoaVia® is a powdered, daily cocoa extract supplement designed to help support cardiovascular health by helping support healthy circulation and blood flow.† Heart, brain, and eye health—even exercise performance—depend on a healthy circulatory system.
The suggestion is to add chocolate flavored Cocoa Via to milk, coffee drinks, yogurt, smoothies, or oatmeal. For the fruiter flavors, adding Cocoa Via to water, smoothies, iced tea, or yogurt is recommended.
I tried the cran-raspberry flavor in my iced tea and I really enjoyed it! I’m looking forward to trying one of the chocolate flavors to my coffee soon!

XyloBurst Chewing Gum – Green Tea flavor
Your mouth is about to indulge in the cleanest, healthiest burst of sweet tooth satisfaction it will ever meet. Your teeth will multitask their way to a lifetime of uneventful dental checkups by chewing a few pieces of XyloBurst gum each day. And if happier visits to the dentist aren't enough to hook you, our flavors will captivate your taste buds and have them begging for more. XyloBurst is made from completely natural xylitol.
I love this gum! It holds its flavor and doesn’t get old like typical chewing gum! It’s also good for popping a few bubbles…cause that’s important when choosing gum!! :0)

Barlean’s Omega Swirl Fish Oil – Key Lime flavor
 An Omega-3 Sensation with the taste and texture of a fruit smoothie! Now everyone can enjoy the benefits of Omega-3 without the oily taste and texture of liquids or having to swallow large capsules. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, Omega Swirl flax and fish oil supplements are the freshest, best-tasting and most nutritious Omega-3 products, naturally.
I’m a huge proponent of Omega-3’s so I tried this sample immediately! The taste was great and it had good texture (I’m always worried about texture). I highly recommend it!

Eboost Natural Energy – Acai Pomegranate flavor
This EBOOST formula is loaded with green tea, vitamins and super nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin D and B-12, sweetened with Stevia and contains only 10 calories!
This sample really reminds me of your typical electrolyte beverage, but with an awesome flavor! I loved the Acai Pomegranate sample!

BQuick Fuel Performance Protein Blend – Chocolate flavor
BQuick FUEL packs in 25 grams of protein per serving. As a functional recovery protein shake and performance blend made with all-natural ingredients, BQuick FUEL also includes 2000mg of L-Glutamine per serving for improved tissue repair and post-exercise recovery along with 5g of fiber per serving. BQuick Fuel has an abundant balance of electrolytes to replenish the body, and contains natural flavors and sweeteners too, with added Sambazon® Açaí Fruit Powder as a powerful antioxidant with healthy omegas.
Since I haven’t done any heavy duty runs/workouts lately, I haven’t tried this sample yet!

Neo-Chill Tablets
Neo-Chill is an easy-to-use dietary supplement that promotes relaxation without drowsiness – meaning, it helps the body and mind to “chill out” without dulling the senses nor exerting a hazy, enervated feeling.* It contains Suntheanine®, a patented, proprietary L-theanine (an amino acid) also found in green tea. Clinical studies on Suntheanine show that doses of between 50 mg and 200 mg naturally stimulates alpha waves – specific brain activity which is associated with a relaxed but alert mental state. 

May Box


I loved how the May box not only included a list of ingredients, it also featured three fellow healthy living bloggers and their take on a few of the items inside! Awesome idea, Bulu!!

AllerDx Seasonal Relief Tablets
AllerDx is a clinically-tested blend of herbal ingredients created by doctors to help control and moderate the body's reaction to seasonal environmental stress. AllerDx is designed to help regulate the immune system as well as reduce sensitivity to conditions in your environment. AllerDx addresses both the cause and the symptoms of seasonal challenges without drowsiness.
Since I just received this Bulu Box this week, I took these capsules before falling asleep last night! I tend to have allergy issues while sleeping (might be my pillows, I’m conducing an experiment) so we will see what happens!

Neo-Cell Beauty Bursts Chews – Super Fruit Punch flavor
Provides specific amino acids necessary to replenishing the body’s collagen supply Helps minimize fine lines & wrinkles, and improves elasticity in the skin Builds and supports bone matrix Corrects weak, broken, split and damaged nail beds Thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss Repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity; improves circulation; promotes wound healing Glycine builds lean muscle to help burn fat while you sleep.
Can you say YUM?! Not only are these good for your skin, they taste delicious, too!! I will definitely look into these for the future!

Artisana Nut Butter – Acai Berry flavor
Delightfully tasty and easy to spread, contains no hydrogenated oils, and is cholesterol and trans-fat free. A perfect complement to your healthy diet and on-the-go activities. Indulge yourself right now.
I am eating this with a whole wheat English Muffin this morning! I’ll let you know what I think! :0)

Fit-Mixer Amino Supplement – Fruit Punch flavor
fitmixer® is a nutritional supplement brand designed for regular people interested in creating and maintaining healthy lifestyles. fitmixer® amino®, slim®, and protein® help provide vital nutrients required to maintain a healthy body. fitmixer® products won’t mold your body into a finely-tuned machine, but they can help provide the fuel your body will need to perform.

Fit ‘n Crisp – Vanilla Marshmallow Flavor
This new snack satisfies your sweet tooth while providing the energy you need to keep you fueled between meals. With 13 grams of replenishing protein, only 140 calories and light crispy texture, Promax Fit ‘n Crisp is a guilt-free reward; whether it’s a 4 o’clock snack or an after workout treat.
Any fellow Rice Crispy Treat fans out there?! Fit ‘n Crisp was delicious. Nuff said.

Have you tried Bulu Box? What were your thoughts?


  1. How fun! I am sometimes tempted to try a subscription of some sort.

    1. I'm still trying to decide which one is my favorite! There's too many good ones! I keep seeing BarkBox adds on my Facebook and I think about Dakota every time I see it...I need to try that one out for my puppies!

  2. Congrats on being a Bulu ambassador! Looks like some awesome stuff in there.

  3. I got one once and lots of the stuff in it were supplements and pills and I am a bit wary of those. I wish they did more food samples and stuff like that.

  4. AH! How cool! How did you get to be a Bulu Box Ambassador?

  5. I just cancelled my bulu box subscription, I had 3 months and didnt use one thing :(
    I had the weight loss not the runner one, maybe that was why.
    I subscirbe to naturebox and I get barkbox for my dogs which they love, i have a review including a cute video to post for this months box.

    1. Naturebox looks really good! I might have to try that one soon! I cannot wait to see the video!! YAY!
