As a part of my affiliation with Fit Approach//Sweat Pink, I was recently selected to try and review Bulu Box, a box of health-related goodies shipped directly to you each month. Though subscription services {think Glossy Box, Ipsy, FabFitFun, Birchbox, etc!} have become crazy popular as of late, I’d yet to personally try one, so I was super excited to get in on the action with Bulu Box!

The Deal: Billed as “a monthly box that will upgrade your health“, Bulu Box is ideal for the fit girl set…and really anyone who is interested in discovering new products designed to help you feel your personal best! Each box ships for $10 a month and includes 4-5 premium product samples from top fitness, health, and wellness brands. The Bulu Box experience is also customizable–depending on their preferences, subscribers can choose between the “Original” box, which is what I was sent, or the “Weight Loss” box, which contains weight loss-specific products and tools like supplements, vitamins, and fitness gear. It’s an inexpensive, low-risk way to try new or different health goodies AND an awesomely simple monthly introduction to products that could become your new faves!

Bulu Box sent me their August “Original” box to review…Here’s what I got!

My August 2015 Bulu Box.
My August 2015 Bulu Box.
  • Yerba Prima Daily Fiber Formula, Orange
  • Quest Protein Powder, Peanut Butter
  • Movit Energy Gummies, Citrus
  • Earth’s Care Anti-Itch Cream
  • Mediterra Savory Bar, Sun Dried Tomatoes & Basil

All but the Quest protein powder were totally new discoveries for me! That being said, my favorite products from this box were the Mediterra savory tomato basil bar and the aforementioned Quest peanut butter protein powder. I’m not a HUGE protein powder girl, but I’m definitely into this variety. It’s 23g of protein per scoop, contains no added sugar, no soy, and is gluten free. The biggest selling factor: It’s peanut butter flavored. Peanut butter protein powder. OMG. The stuff is creamy and sweet and amazing…even when it’s mixed only with WATER. That’s kind of unheard of, guys. I used one of my included packets for shakes and drinks, and am saving the other for treats. I’ve read nothing but good things about Quest’s protein powder, especially when baking is concerned, so I’ll probably be buying a full-sized jar once my Bulu Box samples are gone. The other standout for me in this box was the Mediterra Savory Bar. A lot of health food companies seem to be moving away from the super-sweet, candy flavored bars of yesteryear in favor of new sweet-meets-savory options. While this trend totally makes sense {I mean, my sweet tooth isn’t TOTALLY 24/7 after all!} the not-so-sweet bars I’ve sampled have left much to be desired. The Mediterra Savory Bar, though? Nails. It. The nutrition specs are excellent–the tomato basil bar is non-GMO, gluten free, and contains 6g of protein and 6g of fiber. Here’s the thing: you can’t think of it as a granola bar. It’s NOT a granola bar. There is nothing sweet or granola-y about the tomato basil bar at all–it’s salty and spicy and savory. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want. I probably wouldn’t have ever picked a Mediterra bar off of a store shelf, so I really appreciate that Bulu Box introduced them to me!

…All in all, I had an awesome experience with my first box!
