When opportunity knocks it is foolish not to answer to see just what might be on the other side of the door.
I am intrigued by the many subscription boxes that seem to be a hit these days and why wouldn't I be? I am a busy mom trying to squeeze in running so if some of my shopping appears nicely on my doorstep it sounds like a win-win situation to me. However, I am also a mom trying to live on a budget while indulging dear hubby and myself with race entry fees and darling daughter with the joys and desires that a little, almost-five year old might have. Therefore, when I saw the opportunity to review a Bulu Box through my SweatPink ambassadorship I jumped and signed up!
Funny thing, by the time my box arrived I was so busy with end of the year festivities it slipped my mind for a bit. I opened it, saw the product, and moved on. But things I push to the side are never forgotten. And I wanted to get back to reviewing this box and give you my honest opinion.
Part of the reason I might have let it slip for a bit was the product just didn't fit me. But that isn't to say the product isn't good. There was an assortment of things to try for an energy boost and weight loss. May be good for you, but not what I am looking for. But I was intrigued by a lavender wipe as I LOVE lavender and dear hubby was immediately reached for some soft energy pineapple energy chews by FRS. He loves them! They come individually wrapped and I see him bringing some on runs. He says that they aren't too hard to open. Perhaps I would have tried them but mango is completely not my cup of tea. Please give me some papaya! The first ingredient is sugar so if you are looking for something less sugary, keep looking. But for energy on a run, it could work for you!
I went as far as to speak to a representative from Bulu Box about their box. I expressed my opinion that is was too much energy pick-me-up's and weight loss product for someone very careful on what I put in my body. The representative was completely understanding and explained their mission is to provide subscribers with a variety of changing product to try and to introduce them to new companies with the hope they might find one thing new to love. I guess the mission was met as dear hubby did love the chews!
As I reflect back, Bulu Box may not fit me since I am not into trying new supplements. I have my go-to's for calcium and a daily multivitamin. I don't take energy supplements beyond GU gels on long runs and AirBorne when I feel a cold coming on. And nothing in life is one thing fits all. This box just doesn't fit me but it may be the perfect fit for you. And if nothing else, you were able to learn a bit more about what is inside and can decide for yourself if you want to give it a try! Subscriptions start as low as $10 a month.
Please note: I received one Bulu Box at no cost to review. I did not promise a positive review. I was not compensated beyond the product for writing this post. This opinions are solely my own. Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for each opportunity in my life. Daily Affirmation: I am loving and accepting of others.
