Bulu Box Unboxing

I was sent a Bulu Box for review purposes.  In case you are not aware, Bulu Box is a new subscription service which is $10/month (which includes shipping). Bulu Box allows subscribers an outlet to discover vitamin, supplements and health products they may not be able to get their hands on or may be iffy to try out purchasing a full-size product. Subscribers also have the opportunity to earn 50 Reward Points (valued at $5) each month to use in the Bulu Box online store to buy a full-sized product of a product you’ve tried and enjoyed.
When signing up you can choose between two different types of Bulu Boxes: Bulu Box (focused more on health and nutrition with lifestyle extras such as DVDs, gift cards, etc.) or the Bulu Box Weight Loss (focused on helping you lose weight featuring products such as vitamins and supplements, fitness and healthy eating products).  The subscription options vary between monthly ($10), 3 months ($30), 6 ($60) months or 12 months ($110).  The price break down is different for each, so you have to be really sure you enjoy the service before signing up for an extended period of time.
The box I was sent was the original Bulu Box, not the weight loss box.  The samples received within my box are as follows:
          Dream Water. This water is supposed to help you sleep better – it contains GABA, Melatonin and 5-HTP.
          QSpeed CoQ10 100mg. This is a natural flavored orange, sugar free, fast melt tablets to provide heart health support, improve exercise performance and increase cellular energy.
          Prolab Quick Fire. This is to be used to help surge your workouts by providing your body with nitric-oxide-induced blood flow for muscle contractions and promote vascular.
          Redd Remedies atEAST PM. The natural pill is supposed to calm anxiety and nervous tension which may cause restlessness.
          AeroShot Energy. This is an air-based shot of energy delivering a powder blend of B vitamins and 100mg of caffeine that are supposed to allow the effects to start right away.
          iTrain Download Workout $50 gift card. iTrain offers downloadable workouts that can be loaded onto your mp3 player.
If you’re interested in signing up for a Bulu Box, do so through the company website as follows: http://www.bulubox.com/
Personally I don’t feel the Bulu Box original is something I’d be in the market to order on my own, but I am interested in seeing what the Bulu Box Weightloss has to offer since I am currently in weight loss “mode.”
Have you signed up and received a Bulu box?

Cooking Light (Limited Edition) Cravebox

I currently am subscribed to the Cravebox program.  Cravebox is similar to a Birchbox subscription but in this box the boxes are geared more towards food (and food related items), a healthy living and some beauty.  This particular box is a special/limited edition box – centered around Cooking Light.  I signed up to be included in the box availability drawing and was selected.  The reason I signed up is because I’m a Weight Watchers member and am always looking for something new to test out in the kitchen.  I know in the past Cravebox has provided magazine subscriptions so part of me had a glimmer of hope that that would be the case this time around.  The box arrived and I will say the one item I was most excited about was the Torani syrup.  I’m a huge coffee lover and I purchase my Sugar Free Torani syrups on Amazon.
Here’s what I received in my box:
          Perfect Pinch Salt Free Garlic & Herb Seasoning by McCormick (x2)
          Nectresse 100% natural, no calorie sweetened by Splenda
          Tully’s French Roast Coffee
          Fruit Crisps by Dole – flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Peach and Apple Pear
          Salted Caramel sugar free syrup by Torani
          Coupons, recipe cards, magnet, etc.
I’ve tried the McCormick seasoning in a dish I was cooking and it’s a good flavored stand-up McCormick seasoning.  The peach fruit crisp is mediocre and the salted caramel syrup is ah-ma-zing!  I’ll be trying out the coffee this week at some point and most likely the Nectresse sugar packages as well.
So there you have it, my Cooking Light Cravebox!
