Bulu Box, you have failed this blogger~ (That’s an ‘Arrow’ reference for those who might be wondering what sort of weirdness is going on here. I am a serious Stephen Amell fangirl *swoon*) Ok. Now that we have that all out of the way…let’s proceed with this Bulu Box situation. If you’ve had an awesome experience with it, that’s awesome for you. I didn’t. Thankfully I didn’t spend too much on it. As part of their wanna-be affiliate program I was given my first box to try at a discount.
I won’t be getting another one.
I had to put this on my regular channel instead of my YUMeating channel because there was NO food! I ordered the ‘Weight Loss’ box since Bulu offered two varieties. This weight loss box and the regular Bulu box. I really wanted to like this box. I felt their website is top-notch and I liked the little perks like points for reviews and such.
But, after opening my box all of that interest quickly faded. As you can see from the video where I open it and you get to see my initial reaction.
2 different brands of energy shots. Which, I’ll never use. I have enough issues with sleeping as it is. One weight loss supplements, two packets of energy stuff that goes in my coffee. Again, I don’t need jolted. Martha Stewart (yeah, I know!) digestive health supplements. Well, I tried the supplements. Um..well I can tell you I know now why they are weight loss aids. You are going to just poo. Don’t think they had enough probiotics in them!
I wish I had something better to tell you guys.

Sorry you had such a bad experience. As a person who HATES surprises, that is exactly why I will never sign up for a subscription box service. I would be furious if it was something I hated.
So far this is the only one I haven’t liked. I have been pretty pleased with most of the ones I tried.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
Oh, poo (pun intended). I’m sorry your box didn’t work out. I guess that’s the danger of a subscription box. Of course, that one seemed particularly blah.
I agree. Too much of the same. I might try their regular box at some point in time.

Sorry you had such a experience. The only box I have tired I was able to go online and pick out what I was getting. I don’t know that I would want to be surprised.
Liz Mays says
I’m trying to figure out if anyone would have been happy with those items for their money. I probably wouldn’t have been.
Thanks Liz. I just dont understand 2 energy shots, 2 packets for my coffee and that other stuff. Some weight loss friendly snacks would have been nice.
Experiences like this are why I’m afraid to get a subscription box. You never know if it’s going to be fireworks or a dud.
I still think subscription boxes are good to try new things. I would not have bought any of this stuff fro the store. So, it was sort of a bummer. But at the same time, I am sure the regular box is different or that maybe as time goes on the boxes change based on your preferences and ratings. I just hated that they sent me all this energy stuff. I was hoping for weight loss friendly snacks and such.

Oh, I’m so sorry! What a terrible box you got. Are you going to give it a second try, or are you done? I know with my Stitch fixes, they get better with feedback and such, but I’m not sure this program is the same.
I might switch from the weight loss box to the regular box and see how it goes. I have some other boxes I am trying and then maybe I make my way back to Bulu.
Oh no, I’m so sorry you had such a bad experience. That really sucks.
It does. But we can’t please everyone. I was just hoping for a really good box because they have a cool program.
Oh my. I wouldn’t be impressed with this at all either. I’m so glad you posted such an honest review, and a video. Thank you. You aren’t the only one I’ve seen unhappy with Bulu. Think I will stay clear!
Lisa L says
It sucks you got such a crappy box. Sorry!
Thanks Lisa. It happens !
I am so sorry you didn’t like your bulu box. I haven’t tried any subscription box. Thanks for the heads up.
It happens. We can’t always please everyone.
I can see why you’re disappointed, I would be too. I have been thinking of trying a subscription box so I’m glad you shared your experience.
It was a bummer. Perhaps the regular Bulu box is better.
I have never heard of this box before. I would not have been very happy with this subscription box either.
Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert says
Yeah I watched your video. Wow, total letdown and just seems so unhealthy with all the uppers.
Sorry to hear about that box. That’s why I don’t go for these things. It’s like buying a cat in a bag
Bummer! Sorry you had a bad experience. But I am so happy you gave an honest review!
Bummer this wasn’t a good box. But I appreciate your honesty in telling us
