Smartass & Sass is a monthly subscription for sassy ladies. There are 3 plans available:
Shirt Only for $15.95, Box Only for $34.95 or the Big Box Subscription which includes the shirt and box for $49.95. Shipping is $3.95 for the Shirt subscription and $7.95 for the Box or Big Box subscription. This is a review of the Box Only subscription.
Each box contains 8-9 full size beauty and lifestyle items from Smartass & Sass and various other sassy businesses. The shirts are comfy unisex T's available in sizes XS-3X. I paid for the shirt included in this month's box.
This box was paid for by Smartass & Sass. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Warning: This review is not for the faint of heart! If you're offended by bad language, this probably isn't the review or box for you! If you're like me and thrive on poor language and bad ideas, this is definitely a subscription box you need in your life.
With that said, August's theme was "Excuse You, Can You Not?” and I was super excited to tear it open. I’m a bit behind on my boxes because I’ve had Covid since late August, and I made myself wait to open it. That was super difficult, but it really gave me something to look forward to. I’m better now, though, so….
...Let The Fun Begin!
Bullsh*t Door Hanger - Retail Value $11.95
I. LOVE. THIS. DOOR. HANGER! It’s made of a thick acrylic that makes it really sturdy. It’ll last forever; much to the chagrin of my family! I’m not sure which side I like better, but I’m leaning toward the flamingos. It’s the nice side. I’ll use the monkey side for when I’m feeling particularly snarky.
I Don’t Give A Sip Drink Kit - Retail Value $34.95
Travel a lot? If so, you probably need to relax. This portable cocktail kit is the perfect travel companion! The handsome metal box has just about everything you need to make two sassy drinks. Just add alcohol!
The kit contains small (but sturdy) bar tools: a nifty collapsible metal cup, bar stir/spoon, a thick glass straw, and a card with two sassy recipes. The drink ingredients included are: two packets of true lime powder and two pouches of edible glitter. Yes, edible glitter! There’s enough teal and dark green shimmer for four sparkly drinks.
Sip Sip Hooray Hangover Kit - Retail Value $19.95
What could be more appropriate following a cocktail kit than a hangover kit?! That’s a super cute and thoughtful touch on the part of the box curator. The kit contains a soft, silky eye mask (with a flap that fits around your nose to fully block out that irritating light), squishy ear plugs with a case to keep them clean (and easy to find), two doses of pain reliever, and electrolyte tablets all in a cute case. I think the neon orange case is a great idea because it makes the kit easy to locate when you’re not feeling tip top! The “Hot Mess” zipper is a fun bonus; a small way to remember those crazy nights after you’ve used your hangover kit. And it’ll make a great tampon case or coin purse!
Fresh Out Of F*cks Towel - Retail Value $14.00
You can never have too many kitchen towels, especially sassy ones! But this towel isn’t all good looks: the fabric is nice and it has a strap to keep the towel on the rack. That’s a huge bonus for me because I hate when my towels slip! I freak out if it touches the floor. This snarky towel won’t do that; I’ll have its sass adorning my kitchen for much longer!
B*tchy-A*s Coasters - Retail Value $13.95
When I first saw that I had received coasters, I was worried because Smartass & Sass included a set of coasters in a box a few months ago. But these don’t just have different (super hilarious) designs-- there are 12 of them. The material they’re made of is heavy duty cardboard. They probably won’t last for more than a few uses each, but there are so many of them that they should last you awhile. They’re definitely great for parties; think of them as useful decor.
F*ck Off Coloring Book - Retail Value $10.95
This coloring book is definitely my favorite item in the box! I’m impressed with the quality. The pages are a good thickness (so I’ll be using my gel pens) and they’re blank on the back (so a second design doesn’t show through).
The quotes adorning the pages range from sassy to words I don’t feel comfortable sharing here! If you’re offended by the photos I’ve taken, you really don’t want to see the others. Dying to know all the phrases? Better get yourself a box!
Sassy Pen Set - Retail Value $9.95
These pens are hilarious and the snarky phrases are a great way to ensure that no one steals them! When I first removed them from the box, I was worried about their quality, but they write very smoothly! I’m impressed.
Food Claiming Stickers - Retail Value $10.95
What a great idea! If you’ve ever worked in an office, you’ll understand. These stickers aren’t just funny-- the quality is actually very good.
I’m glad to work from home now, but my sister is a nurse manager. She not only needs these to defend her lunch-- they also provide a moment of much-needed levity in a stressful job.
I Can’t People Today Unisex T-Shirt - Retail Value $24.95
August’s shirt is one of my absolute favorites! It says "My favorite party trick…is not going!” It also says, “Comfy in bed. Stay home.” Which sounds like a great idea to me.
I’m not a T-shirt person but my bestie is. She now has a collection of almost a dozen Smartass & Sass shirts, which means she literally wears them daily. Thank you Jenni, for posing for this photo! According to Jenni, the shirts are true to size, long enough to wear with yoga pants, and ridiculously soft!
I’ve been a subscriber for about a year, and August’s box is fabulous. The total retail value is $151.60 (counting the T-shirt, which I paid for) which is especially great considering Smartass & Sass, unlike many boxes, doesn’t seem to inflate their values.
It's also worth noting that Smartass & Sass has a great shop with items found, and not found, in the box. They also have a monthly "Secret Shop" for subscribers who automatically receive 20% off their order.
All in all, I was so excited by the fabulous curation of this box. The sass was particularly snarky this month, which delights my inner teenager. Since I forced myself to wait until I kicked Covid’s butt to open it, I can honestly say that these goodies were definitely worth waiting for!

To Wrap Up
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first box will be the September box. However, extra previous boxes are oftentimes available for sale in the Smartass & Sass store.
Value Breakdown: The regular box plus the T-shirt costs $54.95 plus $7.95 shipping, which means each of the 9 items (counting the T-shirt) costs an average of about $6.98. In my opinion, that’s fantastic.
