 How cute is that box?  I love all the inspirational sayings all over it..so cute!

Here is an overview of what was in my first Bulu Box!  Lots of fun items- let's get into a quick review of everything.

RUNA Tea 

Powered by Guayusa, a native Amazonian tree leaf, Runa Teas provide as much caffeine as a cup of coffee and twice the antioxidants of green tea.  Replace your calorie filled energy drinks with this tasty natural option.
This tea is DELICIOUS!  I'm a huge fan of ginger, so I was really excited to see that I got the Ginger-Citrus Guayusa tea.  It almost tasted like a warm ginger ale, which might sound gross but was refreshing and easy to drink.  I actually drank this on a morning when I slept really badly and was exhausted at work, and it really woke me up!  I didn't get any jitters or nasty breath like I would with coffee, so I'm a huge fan of this tea and will be buying a box in the future (luckily it's sold on Amazon and about 100 other websites!)

Simple Being Simple Diet

Simple Diet features an effective 4-part blend of ingredients such as Green Coffee Bean, African Mango, Acai, and Resveratrol to promote fat burning, appetite suppression and boost metabolism.

Since I'm in the middle of training for my half marathon, nutrition is really important to me.  I'm working hard on taking in more calories since I'm burning so many, so unfortunately I did not try these, since they're targeted for weight loss.  If you're looking to lose weight, these seem like a great thing to try since they're all natural and reasonably priced at $19.99 for 60 capsules!

Movit Energy Gummies

Movit Energy Gummies use power-boosting ingredients like guarana, CoQ10, and folic acid to combat fatigue and help you perform your best!

I tried these gummies before a speed workout with Run Club.  They tasted really great with only a slight vitamin taste.  The texture was nice and soft, so they went down really easily!  I didn't experience any cramps during my run, which is a common problem I get from energy gummies.  I also love how these gave me just a bit of a boost, but it wasn't too intense.  I really liked these!
 

Fusion Jerky

Fusion Jerky offers a unique, high protein flavor experience made using real chicken and nothing artificial.  This delicious jerky option is gluten-free, minimally processed and 99% fat free!

This jerky was gone very quickly as soon as I opened it.  Not only did I love the taste, but so did Dan!  He generally does not like healthy foods, so I wasn't expecting him to like this at all.  We both loved how flavorful this was, and the texture was perfectly tender.  It had a slight spicy taste from the pepper, and I will definitely be looking to buy more flavors in the future!  Perfect snack, plus Dan liked it as well.  Win/Win!

Earth's Care Anti- Itch Cream

Relieve pain and itching associated with skin irritations such as poison ivy, sunburn, and minor cuts and scrapes.  Earth's Care Anti-Itch Cream contains no artificial colors or fragrances and is petroleum free.

I didn't have any rashes or burns to really test out this product, but used it on some dry, itchy skin.  It did help to soothe the area, but had a really strong menthol smell (like a Vick's Vapor Rub).  Menthol is used as an external analgesic, which is necessary in a product like this, so it wasn't a big deal.  I liked how smooth the cream was and how easily it rubbed in.  This size is great for travel, or just throwing in a purse!  I love trying out boxes like Bulu Box so that I get mini sizes of necessities like this.  It's perfect!


Overall, I was a huge fan of this box!  My favorite items were definitely the jerky and the tea, which I will be purchasing in the future.  I love how there was a variety of products offered, and brands that I haven't heard of.  I'm so glad that I got to try out this box from Sweat Pink, and highly recommend it!  Remember, if you're interested in trying out a box, use the code SWEATPINK to get 50% off your 3-month subscription (that's only $15..great deal)!

  1. I love subscription boxes, They are always such a fun surprise! That chicken jerky looks really good. I'm not usually a jerky fan but lately (I'm blaming pregnancy) it feels like the greatest snack ever.
