I love getting things in the mail! Even bills make me happy, which I know is weird. I just love having something to open when I get home after a long day at work which is why the ever-famous subscription boxes make a regular appearance on my porch! This month, I’m all about the BuluBox, which I got a chance to try out as a #Sweatpink Ambassador! BuluBox is the newest health, fitness, and weight loss themed box designed to help you meet your goals with new, innovative products. Each custom box comes filled with a new mix of 4 to 5 premium samples from top brands to try! All of my readers can check it out by using the discount code SWEATPINK for 50% off a 3-month subscription–which is a steal!
The goods! :)
My box came with 5 different samples to check out. I really loved the bright packaging and the card that gave me info about all of the products. Most boxes come with some type of card, but this one was easy to read and provided me with ingredient lists, and clear information. Of course, the Bulu brands were featured with their contact info so you can visit their websites and/or social media pages to learn more about each product.
Let’s start with my FAVORITE product from this box, Earth’s Care Anti-Itch Cream. I not only got eaten alive the past few nights, but I also somehow got poison ivy while playing with the dog all over my feet. Earth’s Care has no fake colors, fragrances, and contains no petroleum or other nasties. It also had no scent, which makes me a happy camper. Within about 5 minutes, the itching was gone. This brand is also CRUELTY FREE people! No need to slather yourself in awful chemicals!
Next up, Mediterra’s Sundried Tomato and Basil bar! Usually bars are sweet, but for me, I adore savory flavors. This flavor was delicious. It had a nice mix of EVOO and Italian style seasonings and DAYUM, did this thing keep me full. It’s packed with pea protein and cashews which made it a nice source for my healthy fats (that I’m not always so awesome at getting in). They also offer flavors like Olive & Walnuts, and the standby sweet flavors.
The Movit Energy Gummies were something I never thought to try before. I am usually a PM coffee girl, and by the end of my workday I need a small java to get myself running and ready for the gym, dinner, and any other obligations we have for the night. The gummies were tasty and sweet, they kind of reminded me of my vitamins I take, but didn’t do much more for me than having a cup of coffee. If you’re trying to cut calories, this would be a great alternative to the afternoon drink or snack to perk you up.
I’m always looking for new ways to stay satisfied, and fiber is something that I definitely don’t lack as a vegetarian. However, the Yerba Prima Fiber sample was gentle and seemed effective. Because I eat a lot of packed greens and don’t always drink a ton of water, the cleansing formula of the Prima was like hitting the reset button after a weekend of partying. I also like that it’s sweetened with Stevia and gently gets things moving. Psyllium husk certainly does the trick!
Last but not least, was Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder. This is the one product that I was kind of “blah” about. Protein powder isn’t really something I use on the daily. I’m a fan of getting my protein from whole foods. If you’re someone who drinks a lot of smoothies or needs a post-workout snack, this would probably do it for you. Quest does mention baking with this powder, so you might try and make protein pancakes or cookies. Either way, protein is protein when it’s in powder form (at least for me).
I enjoyed most of the things in my BuluBox, so now it’s your turn to #LoveBulu! Use the discount code SWEATPINK for 50% off a 3-month subscription and tell me and @bulubox how you #LoveBulu.
