Ellie Subscription Box Review – February 2017
Ellie is back! And it’s now a workout wear + gear subscription!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI – I did receive the water bottle featured on the inside of the lid – but it came in a separate shipment. It’s a large bottle, and the rose gold is gorgeous:
Now, back to the box!
The Subscription Box: Ellie
The Cost: $49.95
The Products: “Every month you’ll receive 5 amazing items for your active lifestyle. Your usual box can include a sports bra, a top, leggings or capris, a jacket, accessories (a tote maybe), and a piece of equipment.”
Check out all of Ellie reviews!
Balance Collection Lima-A-Rita Tank – Value $20
This tank is a poly/spandex blend, and very lightweight – it’s a great layering piece.
It has a loose fit and coordinates well with the next item:
Marika Tek High Impact Bra – Value $30?
I couldn’t find this bra online, so I’m estimating the value.
This bra has lined, padded cups that are not removable. As you can see from the first picture of this bra, it already has a shape, so you have to fit the shape, not the other way around. For me, it wasn’t a perfect fit, so this bra was a miss for me.
Marika Legging – Value $50?
(Again, estimating the value.)
I really like the fit of these pants – not too constricting, and the fabric is really stretchy, too.
And if they are going to include a pattern, I like that it is all grey and black. The neon tank is enough pop for me for one outfit!
Drawstring Bag – Value $2?
They included this exact same bag in last month’s box, too. I hope this isn’t a regular addition – I can only use so many identical small black drawstring bags!
Bally Total Fitness Jump Rope – Value $14
This is a well-made jump rope! It has roller bearings and the foam grips make it easier to hold, too:
And if you want to shorten the rope, you can untwist the caps to cut the rope:
Bally Total Fitness Foot Massager – Value $15
This is a hot or cold roller, so you can put it in the freezer, or in hot tap water to adjust the temperature.
I’ve tried foot rollers before, and I like this one because it has a little give to it. (Others I’ve tried are a completely solid plastic.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $131 (that’s using some product value estimates.) I think that’s a great value for a $50 workout clothing subscription, and I like the workout accessories they included, too. If you are thinking of subscribing, it’s good to know that these pieces are likely going to be older stock, but it didn’t feel like older inventory since the outfit is coordinated – I really appreciate that part of this subscription.
I wish the bra was a better fit for me, but otherwise, I really like this box.
