First Impressions


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. Consider yourself warned!

With that said, February's theme was "Sweet & Salty B*tch!”

Bring On The Sass!

A Cookie A Day Soy Candle By Lasting Smiles - Retail Value $30.00


This candle smells so much like an oatmeal raisin cookie; it’s absolutely mouth watering! It fits this month’s theme perfectly and it’s nice to receive a beautiful, high quality candle. However, I’m not one for food scents, but my sassy gal pal Julie is, so she’ll give it a loving home!

Sh*t I Don’t Need Tote - Retail Value $22.95


The fun phrase printed on this tote bag couldn’t be more accurate. I’m a perpetual Girl Scout: I carry around everything that I could possibly need, everywhere I go. But what I’m really impressed with is the quality of this tote. The canvas fabric is very thick and sturdy. The handles are strong and the stitching is well done. The size is also really nice; the bottom of the bag sits flat and it even has pockets in it! It’s definitely a great addition to my tote bag collection.

Get Your Sh*t Grocery List - Retail Value $8.95


You know you’re middle-aged when you’re excited to receive a new grocery list! The phrases are funny but most of all, I love the size and layout of this list. The size and number of spaces makes it perfect for a full week’s worth of groceries; plus the boxes next to each line make it easy to mark off each item as you buy it. Perhaps I’m weird, but there’s something so satisfying about checking a box!

Secret Ingredient Magnet - Retail Value $5.95


This is a really nice magnet. It’s cute, feels well made and grips well. The phrase is funny and it fits the box’s theme. I really like the hot pink color; I’m not always in love with the colors that the designers of this box choose to feature. I’ve noticed a lot of orange and other earth tones, so it’s a great change of pace to see pink. This is knit-picking, a bit, but I’ve received Smartass for over two years and there is a definite trend toward warmer colors. So bravo, Smartass, love the pink!

You’re The Motherf*ckin’ Bomb Mold - Retail Value $12.95


This hot cocoa bomb mold is really perfect for the theme. And, while a bit messy, these molds are a lot of fun to use. I received one in my FabFitFun box a year or two ago so I’m gifting this one. I love that Smartass includes directions for use in their box insert.

Wake Me Up Before You Cocoa Hot Chocolate Mix By The Spice Age - Retail Value $7.47


Bonus points to Smartass for including the most important ingredient of a hot cocoa bomb. And it’s a super high quality, absolutely delicious one. I wasn’t up to making cocoa bombs this month so I made this hot chocolate on its own. I followed the suggestion of using milk and I’m happy to report that it makes an incredibly rich glass of cocoa, even with non-fat milk!

Cheeky Chocolate Collectable Marker - Retail Value $4.95


Smartass & Sass has announced that they will include a different color Sharpie, with appropriately funny phrases, in each of 2023’s boxes! This is the second in the set and appropriately, it’s brown. It fits the theme so well that I stupidly sniffed it, thinking it might smell like chocolate: it doesn’t!

My Own Sugar Daddy Keychain by Buffalovely - Retail Value $9.95

Smartass & Sass has included a “motel-style” keychain in the past and I kind of like the idea of collecting a bunch! They’re thin and light enough that I can carry a few at a time. Their online shop has a pretty rad looking black and white checkered one with another funny phrase. I think I need to collect them all.

Smart & Sassy Pizza Unisex T-Shirt - Retail Value $24.95

February's shirt definitely fits the “Sweet & Salty B*tch” theme!

Though I’m not a T-shirt person, my bestie is, so this shirt goes to her. She now has a collection of around 20 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! She tells me that every morning she flips through them in her closet and chooses which to wear, based on her sass level that day!

Neither Jenni nor I were in love with this shirt design, but her teenage daughter was, so she happily claimed it. It’s definitely perfect for an 18-year-old with sass!

The Verdict

January’s box was a bit disappointing, but Smartass has come back strong. February’s box was incredibly well curated; there was a great mix of well-made items and they all fit the “Sweet & Salty B*tch” theme. I haven’t received March’s box but I’m excited for it because the theme is: “Sass-Tainable.” It promises reusable, eco-friendly items in honor of Earth Day (April 22nd). What’s not to love about that?

I also want to note 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.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first box will be the March box. However, extra previous boxes are oftentimes available for sale in the Smartass & Sass store.

Value Breakdown:

The box plus T-shirt costs $54.95 plus $7.95 shipping which means each of the 9 items (counting the T-shirt) cost an average of about $6.99. What do you think of Smartass & Sass?
