The Subscription Box: Ellie

Check out all of Ellie reviews!
Marika Recharge Singlet – Value $40
This tank is super lightweight and perfect if you want coverage but as little extra weight as possible.
The back has stretchy mesh inserts for added ventilation.
Marika Kelly Sports Bra – Retail Value $45
This is a medium impact sports bra, with stretchy, non-adjustable straps.
It has removable cup pads and a comfortable band:
It is one of the most comfortable sports bras I’ve worn – I love it!
Marika PWR TEK Leggings – Retail Value $55
These leggings have contrast panels on the front and are plain black on the back.
The lower blue portion is mesh (not as stretchy mesh as the tank top, though).
Marika Balance Collection Form Bottle – Retail Value $20?
This double wall, vacuum insulated stainless steel bottle is BPA-free and keeps cold drinks cold for 24 hours.
This is a big bottle (25 oz), and I like the lagoon green shimmer finish.
I don’t understand the ribbon attached to the cap, though. How are you supposed to wash this thoroughly? (FYI – it is handwash only.)
Marika Yoga Mat Towel – Retail Value $25
This towel is a soft microfiber terrycloth and measures 72″ L x 24″ W.
As far as workout accessories/tools go, I can always use another yoga towel, so I’m happy with this addition in the box!
Drawstring Bag – Value $2?
Ellie has included a black drawstring bag in every box I’ve received so far. Personally,
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $185. That’s using MSRP values for all Marika products. (It’s worth noting that Marika has a VIP program that offers 60% off all items plus one free item for the cost of $19.95 a month.) So, if you went with the VIP program, you’d end up spending a little more than the $50 for this box, but you’d be able to customize exactly what you want.
One other thing to note that some MSA readers mentioned – Ellie does not always send out the same outfit to all subscribers. So, you may receive substitutes for some of the spoiled items. Keep that in mind if you are considering subscribing.
Those items aside, I really liked my outfit this month, and I was happy to see a towel as the workout accessory this month.
