Bulu Box Review

FallinLove

Disclaimer: because of my relationship with fit approach and being a sweat pink ambassador I was sent a complementary Bulu box in exchange for a blog post and review. All opinions and thoughts are 100% my own and honest.

First things first…what is Bulu Box? “Bulu Box is the first health, nutrition and weight loss discovery box designed to help you feel your best. Each month, you’ll get a custom box filled with a new mix of 4 to 5 premium samples from top brands to try. Every sample is sufficient enough to decide if the product is right for you.” Honestly I had never heard of Bulu Box until I received one due to my ambassadorship with sweatpink. But I’m so glad I know about it now!

Bulu Box is the best way to discover healthy, nutrition and weight loss products.

Bulu Box is such an awesome idea! I love that there are two different box options to choose from!

Bulu Box Original

Bulu Box Original:

This box provides a well-rounded sampling of all things health and nutrition.

Each box contains 4 to 5 premium samples such as sports nutrition, sleep, and healthy snacks.

Plus lifestyle extras like gym gift cards or DVDs to cover all aspects of health!

Bulu Box Weight Loss

Bulu Box Weight Loss:

Designed specifically to help with the varying factors of weight loss,

this box contains 4 to 5 premium weight loss items such as energy aids,

healthy snacks, sleep aids and fat-burners.

Plus bonus weight loss items like fitness gear and kitchen tools.

 
How it works?
1. Try Samples:
You’ll LOVE discovering new products, but just as important as finding your new healthy faves is seeing which products don’t work for you. Try 4-5 samples based on your profile before buying full-size so you don’t waste your money.
2. Earn Points:
Speaking of money, want some more? Each month you can earn up to 100 Rewards Points (that’s $10!) just for subscribing and sharing your thoughts. Log in to your account to fill out your sample surveys about the products you just tried.

3. Cash Out:
Once you’ve earned Rewards Points you can use them like actual cash towards a full-size purchase of your new favorite product. Some Bulugans even get their order completely free! How many points can you rack up?

On to My Bulu Box!!!

BULU

I received my Succeed at Weight-Loss Bulu Box a few days ago and it was full of five awesome weight loss related product samples and an info sheet about each product! Plus it comes in a super cute bright orange box!

What was in my box:

runa_tea_group

Runa Tea: A healthy energy boost

shapeology_garciniacambogia_bulusite

Shapeology Garcinia Cambogia: Stimulant free fat burner

movit_gummies_single_1
Movit Energy Gummies: On the go energy

quest_protein_powder_packets_vanilla_milkshake
Quest Protein Powder: More than just a protein shake

earths_care_anti_itch_cream
Earth’s Care Anti-Itch Cream: natural proven itch relief

I absolutely love the idea of Bulu box! This is the perfect opportunity to try out a bunch of different products and find out if you like them or not and if you want to buy the full-size version. It’s a win-win!

I love everything that came in my box. The itch cream smells awesome and felt great on my skin! I have a really dry skin, in all seasons it doesn’t matter if it’s summer, winter, spring whatever the season my skin is dry so this anti itch cream was perfect! I love the vanilla quest protein powder, the Movit Gummies are delicious and the tea was wonderful! Here’s the Debbie Downer part…Shapeology Garcinia Cambogia supplement. It only came with two capsules so it’s virtually impossible to form an opinion if it was something that I want to buy in the full-size version. In my personal opinion I don’t think a supplement with that small of a sample should be included in the box. However with that being said I love the box and am looking forward to my next one! I highly recommend this box and think that you will love it! I also LOVE the BuluBox Blog! If you’re interested please take advantage of my 50% off code SWEATPINK you can choose from 50% off 3, 6 or 12 months subscriptions with this code!!!

DiscountCodeI want to give a big shout out thank you to FitApproach, SweatPink & BuluBox!

 

Now its your turn, have you ever tried a subscription box before? If so, what’d you think? If not, whats holding you back? I’d LOVE to know!

The new Britni 2.0 {enough is enough}

 

B2.0You know that moment when you look in the mirror and you shrug your shoulders and say “well, that’s as good as it’s going to get?” I have decided that enough is enough.  No more “this is good as its going to get” no more “no I’d rather stay home”  because I have spent too long being embarrassed and insecure about my weight gain. No more pretending that I’m “totally ok with who I am” that isn’t true when it comes to my outward appearance. I know that I am not the only one and I think its time we all stand up and say enough is enough and take control of us! No matter where you are in your fitness or lack there of.

Enough not loving you

Enough comparing

Enough giving up

Enough embarrassment

Enough not thinking you are worth it

ENOUGH!

Maybe it’s because its spring, which means new beginnings that this has been in my heart and on my mind a LOT. I believe its time for us who are struggle with weight issues to take control of what may be a little weight gain or possibly out of control situation. Or, maybe its been on my mind because I have a friend who is suffering from potentially life-threatening conditions that are being exacerbated by her 280-300lbs+. I’ve tried so hard to encourage her and sadly with no avail. She has decided that she is too overweight and there is no way she can come back from it, this absolutely brakes my heart. No matter where we are, we CAN come back from anything! I don’t mean to come off harsh towards my friend because I think we are all guilty of thinking ‘nope its too late for me’ We all need a little or a lot of encouragement in our lives right?

My personal story {the cliffs-notes version}

My past: The road to my current weight was filled every emotion you can imagine, heartache, fear, pain, happiness, joy  and love. Ok, that seems totally crazy, let me explain. As a older teenager I was under 90 pounds suffering from mental and physical abuse by someone who I thought was someone they were not…so out of fear and abuse I just got skinner and skinner {I have decided not to share a picture because I don’t like seeing me that way and because I don’t want to give that look any kind of glorification.} Fast forward to being loved and adored by my now husband, getting happy and staying happy and intern gaining weight because I was so happy {ugh the irony} I was not longer in a messed up relationship based on control and fear. I was able to be me and be loved because I was me. It was at the time a healthy weight gain at I went from about 95 to 125 in a 4ish month span….but I continued to gain. Fast forward a little more to having babies that caused minimal weight gain but did however cause my midsection to stretch to the point of being bigger around then I am tall {with my twin pregnancy}

My present: I have struggled with losing the fat around my midsection and losing weight overall since 2010. I’m only 5′ tall so extra weight it very hard to carry and very painful and being 190lbs and above hasn’t been easy. It has been an uphill battle that has been so hard and yes, I have lost momentum and motivation many times and I have given up in the past. Since December 2014 I have lost about 35 pounds!!! I’m was so proud how far I’ve come and I know I still have a long way to reach my goal but thats ok, because we all have to start somewhere and sometime right? Then thing changed and sadly in late February/March of this year I lost a huge amount of momentum {because of heartache surrounding some family deaths} since then I have struggled with getting back into the swing of things. Now here we are in May and I can’t help but look back and think what would’ve been if I did not lose my momentum? Wait! no I can’t play that mind game with myself. I know a lot of you have probably been in those exact same shoes, but I’m here to tell you STOP!!! Don’t do it, Don’t beat yourself up, it is not going to help anything, in fact in my experience from years past when I play that game in my head I end up having even less motivation to restart and that’s just not good for anybody. I will not sit here and play the pity game of ‘poor pitiful me, I could have been at a weight that I wanted to be’ I’m not going to do that and I don’t want you to do it either! Each day is a new day, no matter what last night was like, the last week was like, the last month was like or the last year was like, it does not matter, today is your day to take control and start fresh!!!  Join me and take control with me today! You can do it, I know it! I can too!

Ok, I have NEVER shared a photo like this before…meaning, wearing something that to totally unflattering to my body…not sucking in NOTHING. I’m horribly embarrassed about my midsection and I’m so afraid of someone saying unkind things so I almost don’t even want to click “publish” this I think if I have shared something…anything that encourages one other person its worth it and that is a risk I’m willing to take!
