Cal-EZ

CalEZ

Value: $.86/2 2.5g packets ($12.95/30 day supply) Company Site: Cal-EZ

This sample of Cal-EZ is for a powder mix that contains a daily dose of calcium and vitamin D.  The powder itself is flavorless and can be mixed in to nearly anything from smoothies to mashed potatoes.  There were two pouches in my sample pack.  I have actually been looking for a calcium supplement since I am currently pregnant, so it was a happy surprise to get this sample this month.  Also if you go directly to their website at Cal-EZ you can request a free sample to try for yourself.

Flora Udo’s Choise Enzyme Blend

flora

Value:$1.10/3 capsules ($21.99/60 capsules) Company Site: Flora Health

This is a sample for Flora Health’s all-purpose digestive enzyme capsules.  Each capsule contains 7 active enzymes that are designed to maximize digestion and absorption of all foods.

Fru-Licious Freeze-Dried Fruit

frulicious

Value: $1 10g pk($11.99/12pks) Company Site: Fru-Licious

I was super excited to see this sample in my box.  I really like this brand and the Banana & Strawberry is one of my favorite flavors.  It’s the perfect sweetness and reminds me of a cereal topping.  Actually this would be pretty good as a cereal or yogurt topping.  Check out my review of March’s Bulu Box when I got to try their Grape flavor.

The Hand Stuff

hand

Value: $.64/3g ($11.99/2oz jar) Company Site: The Hand Stuff

This sample is for an all natural hand balm.  It’s pretty thick and designed to soothe and heal hands that are dry and chapped.  They list their key  ingredients as shea butter, coconut oil, lanolin, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E.  I like this product but I think it is a bit too pricey for me considering my hands are not that damaged and regular lotion works just fine.

VanaPain

vanapain

Value: $3.20/ 1.93oz bottle ($38.40/12 bottles) Company Site: Vana Pain

This sample from VanaPain is for a fast acting pain relief liquid.  It is designed to provide temporary pain relief for up to six hours with one single dose bottle.  The types of pain they mention getting relief from are headaches, backaches, muscle aches, menstrual cramps, and minor arthritis pain.  The active ingredients are caffeine and choline salicylate.

Bonus Samples

Mrs. Crimbles Macaroons

cookie

Value: $.67/1 cookie ($11.97/18 cookies 3/pack) Company Site: Mrs. Crimble’s

Mrs. Crimble’s is a food company focused on making great tasting gluten free products.  Apparently the company has been around since 1979 and began in the London area.  Obviously they have expanded quite a bit since then and are available at number of stores both on and offline.  My cookie sample flavor is coconut macaroon with a chocolately drizzle, and it is amazing!  The inside is soft sweet coconut goodness and the outside is slightly toasted with chocolate.  I will definitely be ordering more of these.

Verdict: Total estimated value of box $7.47.  This happens to be my favorite Bulu Box so far.  I found the items in this box both useful and yummy.  As for the total value of the box, I believe this month they fell short.  I like to see the value of the contents be more than the cost of the monthly box, which is $10.  One or two more samples thrown in would have been nice, but still overall this was a really good box.
