So it’s that time again! Bulu Box is back for a April sneak peek. Its another thing to help me keep thinking healthy positive. I have a goal I want to reach and sometimes everyone needs a little something to remind them and help them along the way. Besides my wonderful husband who is on this track with me. I get this monthly reminder. There will be at least one more after this month. From there we will see what will happen.
Once again if you have no clue what Bulu Box is you can find that info here.This will explain what it is, and how fun this subscription box can be! For those of you tuning in for the second preview of this. I am hoping to see you join up to and start this with me! I highly encourage it because it is really something cool to look forward to each month.
So Aprils Bulu Box Sneak Peek. Just like last review of this I am going to use this to show you all what came in it. From there random reviews will pop up with items from this Bulu Box with reviews. Without further ado. Bulu Box April.
So this months paper pamphlets in the box were a couple coupons for helping with weight loss products (Which for some people whom are about using pills for weight loss can be a great thing to see. They can be pricey so I can see some people getting excited about that. I personally will stick with the good olde’ exercise and walking route to loss my weight. ) There was the normal paper with info on the products included in the box. As well as what looks to be like a small card marked:’ YES!’ I am assuming said card is to help motivate.
In total with the ‘Yes!’ card and the other products this box this month came with a total of seven products. Apparently the idea of the ‘Yes! Change is easy card’ is kind of what I thought it was about. It is to help motivate as well as helo let you monitor if your making progress on a daily basis. Which seems to be a all over pretty cool idea and I can see how that could work. I know for someone like me it may not work as well. I can write down whatever I want but unless I physically have something in my hands to be a goal for me. I kind of after a couple days start to stumble with it. At the end of the day rather then looking at a card I prefer to be able to physically see my goal reason for the whole thing or at least one of the reasons in front of me. Sipping tea and relaxing at the same time.
This brings us to HELP R&R Tea. Everyone knows that feeling at the top of ones game can sometimes be a struggle. Though for my tea lovers out there. Whom are kind of against medicine or would prefer a alternative medicine. This Tea is for you. It is meant to help with better and a more sound sleep, help with your digestion, sinuses and health in general. So this will be interesting to try and I can’t wait.
The third thing I happen to pull out of the box was a Berlean’s Omega Swirl Mango PEach. This is suppose to be a alternative to pills for getting your daily dosage of Omega-3’s. This could be a interesting concept if the flavor is not to faint or over powering. I am highly interested in trying it. They are made to be a on the go thing so you can grab it on your way out the door if your running behind. Which is always clever thing to do anymore. Everyone is always in hustle mode.
On to the fourth product to come forth from the box. Another Smarty Pant’s Vitamin product. Now I liked the last product so I do have to say I have high hopes for these ones as well. These ones are suppose to help with weight management. Which I can always use help with. Specially since I am trying to lose weight and get my other levels that need to be up up and those that need to be down down. At first I will admit I was confused why I got a product from them again then I realized it was a different type of vitamin and then it started to make sense.
Then there was the fifth. Mestrength. This powder is suppose to be added to water and helps you with hydration and strength. Because of what is in it, I will not be taking this till sometime in August/September when I am outside sweating from the heat at the Ren Fair. This will go into my kit of try this when it is the right time. Type of thing. So though I am excited you won’t see this one pop up for a while. Sorry guys.
Body Glove Surge Energy Gel. This one was a little weird to me I will admit. At first I couldn’t tell if you were meant to take it as is or put it in water. We figured it out of course. It seems like a interesting concept and I will be trying this out here soon in the near future. Specially since I tend to get tired quickly (I have really low Vitamin D levels so I lose energy quickly. Very quickly) So this should be a interesting try out to see if it helps giving me that extra kick I need through out the day.
Last but not least. Mediterranean Snacks has come out with a Tapaz 2 Go. This is a to go portion size of non GMO mini meal of Humus and lentil crackers. Now personally I am picky about humus my husband on the other hand is not as much. So we agreed to try this together. Get a full rounded view on it. See if it is something we would be interested in purchasing in the future. Either way it should be fun.
So this month box’s is filled with many fun little things that I look forward to trying even if not right at the front of the moment. Keep checking back. Stay healthy, Get fit. Go get your Bulu Box now! Posted by Squeeks at 9:00 AM No comments: Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest

Bulu Box Review
Welcome back Guys and Dolls. Today I bring you a special review. So there seems to be this new craze that has swept our nation. Subscription boxes. Most of you have probably have heard of them by now. If you haven’t your probably scratching your head at this point. So let me back up a little. What is a subscription box?
A subscription box is a monthly box you receive with varying prices. Prices depend on the category of the box as well as company. You are able to sign up typically for one box or you can sign up for a consecutive months subscription. When you receive the box you typically receive anywhere from four to five samples (Occasionally a full size sample) of products that month to do with that category.
So that is what a subscription box is and there are literally all kinds of subscription box programs out there. It does not matter your age, gender or interest. Chances are if you do enough looking you will find a subscription box(es) that fit you. Whether you interest lie in beauty, food, outdoors or even health.
Which brings us to where we are going today. How many of you try your best to stay healthy? Or even have a goal to lose weight? Lets face it we all are trying one or the other if not both! One of the biggest issues I have run into personally is keeping up with what is out there to help with keeping healthy and in shape or even for helping to lose weight. I am no health nut by far, so I would not even know where to start looking other then possibly big box stores. Which if you haven’t caught on yet, I am not a huge fan of.
I managed to weave my way through the sea of subscription boxes and found one that actually peeked my interest. So today I am bringing you BULU BOX! Well now you may be asking yourself what in the world’s name is Bulu Box? Let me give you the short and skinny about Bulu Box. This is the first health, nutrition and weight loss discovery box. If you want more info on it you can find it under the tab marked Monthly Subscriptions.
What Came in Marches Box:
(I have not tried any of this yet but I do plan to start to next week.)
This is a protein that helps curb those hunger pains. They typically come in a two pound tub or in portioned packs which are nice for people on the go. The flavor in which mine came in was Vanilla. I am not sure how many different flavors it comes in other then Vanilla and Chocolate though. None the less the portion pack boxs comes twelve to a pack for thirty nine dollars and ninety nine cents. (USD)
Flapjacked Protein Pancakes
These protein pack breakfast will help give you the energy in the morning that you need to make it through the day. Ingredients include in these are things like quinoa, whole oats and lean muscle building whey protein isolate. They typically come in a pouch that contains fifteen serves. This item normally running at nineteen dollars and ninety nine cents. (USD) They seem interesting enough and I do plan on most likely giving them a try here in the near future. In which case you will be able to keep your eyes peeled for the review on this product.
Neocell Beauty Bursts
This product is suppose to do the same thing as taking the Biotin pills do. They are meant to help with your hair, nails and skin. Though instead of that gross taste you get from the pills you can have a nice burst of flavor! This is actually a really interesting idea and I may be investing in them in the future since I typically take Biotin. I will do a review on these later. I will probably also do a comparison between these and Biotin to find out which one is better or more so worth the money! These come in two flavors Mine was Fresh Mint Chocolate but they apparently also come in super fruit punch. Sixty chews to a bag at nineteen dollars and ninety five cents. (USD)
Now this is a interesting product and I was excited to see it. It is a Herbal Allergy Relief medication. This is maid of concentrated herbal extracts that work both alone and together to immediately support nasal, sinus and eye health and provide dramatic seasonal allergy relief without a prescription. So this will be interesting to try in a couple more weeks when spring starts up! These come in a forty count bottle at sixteen dollars and ninety nine cents (USD.)
These are kind of cute. I know people that can’t swallow pills. On occasion’s its just something that is hard to do in general depending on the size of the pill. These are all in one gummy multivitamins as well as includes Omega 3’s and Vitamin D. They have no fructose corn syrup in them, which I can see being a HUGE selling point. No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Though are still very naturally flavorful. So I will go out on a limb and say these probably taste twenty times better then swallowing those horse pills. They come a hundred and eight to a bottle at twenty nine dollars and ninety five cents (USD.)
Ooberluxe seems to be a way to organize your life a bit. It’s exact description is: a super intuitive, reservation-making, order-taking travel + virtual assistant. I received a month long membership for it. I may look more into this and let you know what this is all about how it works and whom it would be good for. Though I may also wait to see if anyone actually shows interest in knowing more about it.
So this box for a one month subscription is ten dollars. As you can see noted above just in one of those products this box was well worth the box. It also really kind of amped me up a little to really start doing the working out I need to do. So far I am loving it and think everyone who is looking to stay healthy and fit should give it at least a look see and try for one month at the least.
I do have two more months of this so keep your eyes open, for more healthy and fit things coming your way.
