Bulu Box helps to solve this issue by offering a subscription box service that allows to try products before you buy them. For 10 bucks a month (free shipping!) you get 4-5 product samples to try. Bulu Box asks you a series of (quick) questions that help them to design a box that will meet your needs. I received a general well-being type box but there are other options including weight loss available as well. I specified a gluten free box, so all of the products that I received were labeled 'gluten free'. This is what came in my box, what I think of the product I have tried so far, and what the full sized product costs:
- Product information card/Sample journal
- Holiday gift guide
- $100 Wine Voucher from Nakedwines.com (because wine is essential for my health...)
- D Speed Fast Melt Vitamin D3 - 2 serving sample. These do dissolve very quickly. Has an essence of peach flavoring, then a weird aftertaste that isn't too unpleasant. Full size product is $14.95/60 servings
- NeoCell Biotin Bursts - Gourmet Biotin Soft Chews for Hair, Skin and Nail Health 1 serving sample. This was surprisingly tasty! Like candy. I dunno if it did anything to improve my hair and skin with just one serving, but I would be willing to buy the full sized product to try. Full sized product is $21.59/30 count box
- Surpreme Protien Accelerate Bar sample 1 full sized bar. I had to contact the company on this one and I am waiting for a response. The label says gluten free but the ingredients list rolled oats, which unless they are certified GF aren't safe for Celiacs. Full sized box is $32.99/12 bars
- Brightcore Nutrition Organic Sweet Wheat Grass Juice Powder - 2 serving sample. Wheat grass is a controversial food in the GF world. Most people doubt the safety of this for Celiacs so I will skip this one, and pass it on to someone else. Full Sized product is $49.95 for 180 capsules.
- Brode Electrolyte Vitamins - 1 serving packet sample. Full sized product is $24.97/10 packets

Also when you buy a full sized product of selected items, Bulu Box (or partners) will donate 25 cents to Vitamin Angels, which helps at-risk women, new moms and kids gain access to much needed vitamins and minerals. It is estimated 190 million children under the age of five have a vitamin A deficiency which is a major underlying cause of child deaths.
Overall I like Bulu Box and I think it is a great way to try new products before making the commitment and paying full price for items you my not like or use or that may not work for you. I also think that this would make a great gift for your favorite health nut.
