Bulu Box Weight Loss Box March 2014

I’m really liking this subscription.  I have a three month subscription and am debating on getting another three months, once this subscription box ends.  

The box:

K-Pax Energy.  Full-size, 30 tablet $24.95.

This is actually a full-size product! Yay!  Although it’s an energy supplement, it looks like it can be taken as a daily vitamin.  The serving size is 2, but since I drink caffeine I think I would only take 1 tablet a day, so I don’t get any weird palpitations. 

Body Glove Surge Energy Gel.  Full-size, 12 packets $25.12.

I received this in chocolate.  I’m kind of scared to try this… gel chocolate flavor sounds kind of gross to me… But I guess I shouldn’t knock it until I try it, so I will report back on the taste and if I feel the product works. 

Nuvia Trim.  Weight Loss Coffee.  Full-size, 30 packets $35.00.

I received two packets which is nice.  I’m excited to try these!! I love coffee.  They have green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketones in them. 

Rootology.  Full-size, 40 tablets $18.99.

I received two packs of this as well so 4 tablets.  This sounds like a great alternative to benedryl.  

Havvn Go Sticks.  Full size, 30 packets $64.99.

Well, these are seriously expensive.  I’m not really sure what these are suppose to do or what flavor these are (((they work with the body at the genetic level, not sure what that means))), but I’m willing to try it out.  I wonder if this is the same brand as the birchbox night cream I received this month??

Overall, this box is well worth the $5.00 dollars I spent on it.  I’m really curious if they work.  =)

Bulu Box February 2014

This is a box that I have dying to receive.  After a small hiatus from the gym and eating healthy, I am getting on track.  I bought the weightloss box because I thought it would give me a good variety of products to try.  The cost is $10 a month.  I bought a 3 month subscription for $15 and I see a lot of coupon codes for the 50% off subscription.  You get 10 points per review of each product, and I received 50 points for this box which is equal to $5.00.

And the inside:

Power Crunch Ultraburn – Vanilla cafe.  $49.99/1.4 lb tub

I was so excited to receive this sample.  I have been wanting to try a coffee flavored protein.  Unfortunately, the best by date is 11/13. While, I’m sure the product is fine and safe is try as it’s just a best by date, I’m not sure if the flavor profile will be the same as a newer packet.  I emailed bulu and I will see what they have to say.

Plant Fusion – Nature’s most complete Plant protein – Chocolate.  $34.99/ 2lb tub

I can’t wait to try this brand.  I love that is all plant based protein, non-gmo and relatively cheap for a protein powder.  If I like I’m going to buy it on their website, since I somehow already have $10 worth of points racked up.

Shapeology Burn Blend.  $39.99/ 60 capsules. 

I’m not really into these types of supplements.  But i must say that it is a great size, the sample is 14 capsules.  They suggest to take between 1-2 in the morning and 1-2 in the afternoon.  The size is big enough for you to be to tell if it gives you adverse side effects, but obviously not large enough to see if the product helps with weightloss in the long run.  I will be giving this a try, since it’s not something I would normally buy.

Chosen foods meta powder.  $15.99/15 sticks

I really like that this is a USDA organic product, but the price is kind of high for a fiber supplement.  A whole pack would only last you 5 days since it says to take 3 times a day. I’ll still give it a try. I currently have a tub of fiber from target that is 120 servings and it was around the same, but it’s not organic.

SoyJoy.  Dark chocolate cherry.  $18.99/ 12 bars.

This seems like a great product for anyone who has gluten allergy or intolerance.  I wouldn’t really consider this a weightloss product, but the flavor is divine.  You can indulge in a decent size snack for only 140 calories – Not bad!

Overall, I really enjoyed this box and can’t wait to get my next two months of products.  I will update this once someone contacts me back from bulu regarding the Power Crunch Ultraburn.

EDIT:  I received a response from Bulu and they are amazing!  They apologized and they are sending me a full-size of the Power Crunch Ultraburn – Vanilla cafe.  I’m so surprised, since I would have been happy with just a newer product.  And to top it all off they are giving me another month for free.  Also, I never mentioned this blog to them which means that they are doing it because they really want to keep their customers happy!

bye bye 2013

“As a god self-slain on his own strange altar,
               Death lies dead.”
This is a quotation ripped straight away from one of my favorite poems written by Swinbourne.  Rather than gushing about how great 2013 was or how it had so many bumps in the road, I think it’s best if we reflect on the past year to ourselves.  Take the time to think about the past year.  What are you going to bring over to the year 2014 and what are you going to leave behind?  Remember, you are a different person today than who you were 365 days ago. Yet, we can’t leave our old selves in 2013, but we can mend ourselves to strive for a different or better year that involves testing our very being. We are not perfect. We are reflections of our past.  But with time, we can reach goals and dreams as long as we strive for that change.
With that said, I can’t wait to start up at a new gym with the love of my life and reach our fitness goals together — that’s what 2014 will be about for me and this blog.
