Smartass & Sass ‘Rise & Grind’ Review by Mel – September 2019

A huge Thank you to Abby from Smartass & Sass for sending me this box to review! This has to be the box I get excited about the most when it arrives. I stay away from the spoilers as much as I can as I like to be all giddy when I open it.

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.

This months edit is…. ‘Rise & Grind’

I have to say that theme wise, I did expect something Coffee related. You will have to read on to see if I was right…

If you missed my live unboxing, you can watch it back on our Facebook Group, or by clicking play below on our YouTube Channel…

Time to talk about all of these goodies!…

Good in Bed Potholder

As usual this is a high quality item. I still have all of the kitchen items I have received in this box. The little chopping board and tea towel I use regularly. This is now another unique addition to my kitchen accessories.

Punch today in the face Hot & Cold eye mask

I have had one of these before and they are brilliant. You just pop them in the microwave or freezer. The other one I had was velvet and I didn’t like the feel, but this is a lovely soft fabric on the reverse with an adjustable elastic band. Plus the slogan on it is brilliant. These are a great alternative to spacemasks as you can use it again and again.

Wake the F**k up tea

I would have tried this, but it has cinnamon in and eww that is a no no for me. I have gifted it to the man of the house. Loving the branding of it though!

Great Job Mug

As much as I want to keep this, my partner smashed one of his favourite mugs last week. He has been working on our House around the clock to make it a lovely home and give me my boudoir bedroom. So, I have gifted this to him as he is doing a fab job and I know it will make him smile when he has one of his many daily cuppas!

Rise N Grind Coffee Scrub

This one is all mine. I love a coffee scrub, I buy them often. So to get to try a brand I have never seen or heard of makes me a very happy Mel. The smell of this is out of this world. I considered sticking my tongue in for a taste but then I remember the last time I did that and it didn’t end as I had hoped. I have used this on my face and body and all I can say is wow! It leaves a moisturising balm layer on your skin after washing it off. I really do wish you could buy this over here in the UK as I would re purchase 100%.

Hustle for the vacay sticky notes

More funky sticky notes to add to my collection, and now that my new job is office based I can take these with me to work! I will be the envy of my colleagues I am sure…

Glow Getter Highlighter Set

I took these to work today, I love them. They are great for note taking while I am learning my role. I can highlight all of the bits I need. I love the cute pouch they come in too.

My Verdict?

Yet again I will use everything in this box, and love it all. The Coffee Scrub is a clear winner for me this month. I can’t fault any item I receive in these boxes. The contents are always so varied and unique, and most cannot be picked off shop shelves.

The October Theme is: ‘Like Totally Retro’, and the sneak peek says that next month is a total throwback to our youth (angst sold separately). We’ve got the song lyrics and pop culture references that’ll make you wanna shoop. October’s goodies are like totally rad or whatever! Excited for this one, I really love retro items!
