Smartass & Sass ‘Girls just wanna have Sun’ Review by Mel – May 2019

A huge Thank you to Abby from Smartass & Sass for sending me this box to review! This is my second review for them! I loved the ‘Bite Me’ Edition, which was the April edition I reviewed. You can have a read of that here if you are nosy!

Smartass & Sass is the box baby of Kim & Abby, who have been besties for 25 years. These fun and sassy boxes contain 5-7 unusual treats every month. They also do a Shirt only subscription, and a Big Box version which is basically the 2 boxes combined. All subscriptions ship between 16th and 18th of each month.

How cool is the box though? It is MASSIVE too. I love the ‘Classy, Sassy & a bit Smartassy’ slogan. My Sister is called Saskia, and she is 13. She actually calls herself ‘Queen Sassy’. She is me in the making, what can I say?

This months edit is…. ‘Girls just wanna have Sun’

This is perfect timing, as I do in fact go to France in 8 days! 2 weeks in the Sun for me, exactly what I need too!

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Sassy Stickies

I have quite the growing collection of these now. I won’t lie, I often use this word to my other half. I do love him by by heck he tests my patience most days! I might just stick some of these randomly in places he will see them. We don’t take life too seriously in this house.

Can Cooler

I will donate this to the man, as he is a Coke fiend, the fizzy sort of course!

Lotion Bar

This is right up my street! I am a HUGE fan of natural beauty, and not only is this completely free of any nasty stuff, it is also a handy bar that you can chuck into your bag. It smells good enough to eat too! I am definitely going to be using this on my holiday next week.

Sunglasses Case

Well, I am the queen of losing glasses and cases. Recently I had a pair lost for about 9 months in total. I have 3 pairs of sunglasses all without cases too. I am a total liability with them, ha! So this will definitely get used, and hopefully not lost (I can try!).

Tote/Beach Bag

This is my favourite item this month. The quality is exceptional and it is MASSIVE too. I did have a couple of bags but this is just too good not to take with me. The thick straps are the perfect length too. 8 Days and counting now, can’t wait… take me to the Beach!

Playing Cards

I used to play cards with my other half a lot. Back in the days we had time. I miss it too as we would have a right giggle and actually get on really well when we aren’t running around after two lunatic kids! I am going to take these to France, and we WILL be using them on the deck in the evening when the kids are in bed. The quality of these is spot on, and as usual they have lots of profanities which suits me perfectly.

Peel Off Face Masks

Face mask addict over here, I have tonnes. I have not used this brand before though and I always get excited over new things. Going to be testing one of these out this evening.


This would have been up there as a favourite had the lotion bar and tote bag not been so amazing. I use things like this on a daily basis. I take them to bed with me in case of spillages as I have my phone on charge and nobody wants a frazzled phone do they? The straw has a little rim on it to stop it coming all the way out and getting lost! Can I add G&T in here do you think? Be rude not to…

My Verdict?

I think the whole concept of this box is just brilliant. I know that it is not the cheapest box when you factor in postage, but look at how much is in the box, and the value for money is still there even when you take that into consideration.

You can’t go in the shop and buy any of these, they are all online businesses or exclusive to the box. You are getting all of these fun, quirky items; guaranteed to put a smile on your face (and others when they see them).

This months box has to be my most favourite to date! The items are just perfect for my upcoming holiday and I am chuffed to bits!

The June Theme is: ‘Here comes Trouble’, and the sneak peek says that the goodies are focused on being Fiesty AF! Click below to get your hands on one quick, before the cut off date …
