Bulu Box Review

As part of a campaign for Sweat Pink, I received a complimentary Bulu Box. Each month, subscribers receive 4-5 product samples to try. After sampling your products, you can earn reward points for sharing your thoughts on the Bulu Box website. You can use those points to purchase full-size products from the website.


My daily mail run usually consists of junk mail, unexpected bills, or nasty-grams from the HOA because our recycling bin was still outside 10 minutes after the truck drove by. Needless to say, I was delighted to receive the Bulu Box. Mine had 5 samples, and I’d only heard of one (Quest Protein) before receiving the box.

Here’s what my box contained:

  • Two bags of Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder
  • One Mediterra Savory Sundried Tomato & Basil nutrition bar
  • One bag of Movit Energy Gummies
  • One packet of Yerba Prima Daily Fiber Formula powder
  • One small tub of Earth’s Care Anti-Itch Cream

You don’t get to pick which samples are in your Bulu Box, but you can complete a profile on the website, which helps the Bulu Box team determine what to send. Sure, you could receive a sample you can’t use, but you can always share it with a friend or family member. Or, if you work at a real-girl job, place it on your break room’s “Free For All” table.


As for the samples, I loved the Quest Peanut Butter Protein. I was excited to open the box and see Quest protein because I like Quest protein bars, especially the chocolate chip cookie dough and cookies and cream varieties. After my Sunday long run, I blended it with half of a frozen banana and some unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and it tasted more like an ice cream shop milkshake than a protein shake. I didn’t notice any after taste and the protein blended well. It was my favorite sample and I’d purchase a full size container.

The Mediterra sundried tomato nutrition bar was good too. It’s good for when you want a savory, portable snack since most nutrition/protein/granola bars are sweet. My long runs are only 12-13 miles and don’t require fuel, but the energy gummies tasted pretty good. The MovIt energy gummies contain protein which I thought was interesting for a pre-run supplement.

Fortunately, I don’t really have a need for the fiber powder or anti-itch cream right now, but I stashed those away in my medicine cabinet for when the time is right or if someone in my family needs them.

The SWEATPINK discount code makes the monthly box only $5, which is a great deal for the products you receive as well as the fun happy feeling of receiving mail that’s not a bill. I drink a protein shake for breakfast six mornings a week, and since protein canisters are expensive, I always try a sample pack before splurging. A single protein sample at Whole Foods or Earth Fare sells for $2-3.

I’m usually not a fan of subscription services or boxes, or jumping on board with the next new thing, but I liked  I’m considering subscribing so I can get fun mail each month and hopefully sample some more cool products.

If you want to order Bulu Box for yourself, you’ll get 50 percent off a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription using the code SWEATPINK.

I received a complementary Bulu Box in exchange for an honest review; however, all opinions are my own.

  1. This is so neat! I like that you can fill out a profile on the Bulu Box website so they can somewhat customize what samples you get. And I am totally like you, I LOVE getting mail! Good mail, not bills/junk, haha!

    I have heard this is a really good box service. It’s something I definitely might have to look into, thanks for sharing Amy. That makes it super cheap with the discount and probably better than going to a store and trying new samples yourself.

      I know you can’t get 2 sample packs of protein powder for $5. I’m considering subscribing but hope that it’s always this good (maybe filling out the survey it would be…)

  3. I love getting things in the mail, so subscription boxes would be lovely if I had money and a mailing address! 😛 (Someday…) Hooray for discounts though, and I really hope my box has that protein powder in it! ❤

    Geez. I never subscribe to ANYTHING, but I was convinced by your review, and 15 dollars for three months isn’t bad at all.

    • Amy Lauren says:

      I don’t subscribe to anything either. Heck, I read my magazines for free from the library. But for the price, even if you don’t like it you’re not out much money…

  5. What a cool idea. This looks so interesting.

  6. It’s always fun to receive cool things in the mail! The Quest protein powder has been looking really good on everyone’s reviews!

  7. This is the best review I have seen for the Bulu box and many are out there right now due to the Sweat Pink campaign. The Quest bars are really good so I may need to try the protein powder at your recommendation.I’m not really a fan of boxes since there are usually way too many things I would not try or use, but I love reading about them and finding out about new products!

    • Amy Lauren says:

      I also am not usually a fan but this one seems like a good one to try. With the rewards system and filling out surveys on the products you try, you can earn points to “spend” on the full sized products too.

      I knew there would be products I wouldn’t use- like the fiber and the cream. But hey, I’ve got itch cream and fiber, in case I ever need it now ;).
