My Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2014 arrived yesterday! Here’s what was inside:
The Sephora Sun Safety Kit sold for $32 (one time purchase) – it is sold out online, but may still be available in stores if you are lucky!
bareMinerals READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Translucent – FULL SIZE – $22
This is by far the item that I am most excited about in this box! And since it’s worth 2/3’s of the value that I paid, the rest I’m just going to consider icing on the cake!
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Matte Bronzer – 0.14 oz – $12
I have a feeling that the color on this one will be a little dark for me (medium/deep) so will probably just swap – already have a bronzer that I use. Had this been all natural, I would have given it a try!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 – 0.08 oz – $12
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! I actually really like that it’s clear also! I always say I have TONS of lip glosses, etc. but a clear SPF?! YEP! Love it!
Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Bronzing Beauty Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 – 0.23 fl oz – $8
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! I do wish I would have gotten the translucent or non colored formula (that are shown in the link – I don’t think there was any variations to the Sun Safety Kit). I think this will just be too dark for me.
St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse – 50 ml/1.69 fl oz – $18
No parabens, sulfates or phthalates! I am just not a bronzing type of person… extremely pale + bronze = eww… haha (if you didn’t notice yet, this whole “section” will be bronzers/tanners so will have the similar negative connotation from me.)
Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner – 0.5 fl oz – $3.55
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! but again a tanner…
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Glow Pad – 1 towelette – $1.80
No parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro chemicals, phthalates, GMOs, OR triclosan! (the list is getting better!!) but again… still a tanner.
Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 – 0.5 fl oz – $22.50
No parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan! This item will be going on the top of the pile for a daily moisturizer this summer! Yay!!
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture – 0.06 fl oz – $2.52
No parabens, sulfates or phthalates! … and apparently I missed a “tanner” in the previous section.. haha whoops!
Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion – 0.5 fl oz – $12.35
No sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan! Another one I’m super excited for!! Bring it on summer!
Supergoop! Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil Broad Spectrum SPF 50 – 1 fl oz – $11
No parabens, sulfates or phthalates! And it’s sooo fancy looking! AND a SPF 50!! This is going to be my gardening go to for shoulders, etc!
Origins A Perfect World SPF 25 Age-Defense Moisturizer – 0.5 fl oz – $12.06
No parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan! Yep, will use this up too!
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ For Face – 0.64 oz – $10.40
Hm.. no “no” list for this one… boo. Nevertheless, it’ll still get used. Hopefully won’t clog the pores too much (SPF 50 for the face always scares me a little…)
Ole Henriksen Protect the Truth SPF 50+ Broad Spectrum UV Protection – 0.5 fl oz – $10.29
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! This is also for neck and face! and back to having a “no” list! 🙂
Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++ – 0.33 fl oz – $7.67
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! This item is meant for acne prone skin! I’m sure I’ll use this one right up as a daily moisturizer!
Clarins UV Plus HP Multi-Purpose Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen – 0.3 fl oz – $7.24
No “no” list here either (boo), but it’ll still get used!
As mentioned when posting the spoiler that this box was headed my way, I got three free samples for purchasing over $25, plus a deluxe sample with coupon code “PROTECT”! Here’s what I got:
Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector – no size – $1?
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! I like that they sent a light to medium and medium to deep samples. Will only use the light to med one, but at least they tried to cater to everyone!
Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 – 0.03 fl oz – $1
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! Ha! I didn’t even notice when I picked the samples out that this is exactly the same as the “bronzer” sample above – but not bronzer! Yay! Totally will try this!
MDSolarSciences Mineral Tinted Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen – 0.053 oz – $1
No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates! Also didn’t notice that this sample was tinted when I grabbed it.. haha oh well.
Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 – 0.17 fl oz – $4.42
No sulfates or phthalates! Same response as normal – will totally use this!
I paid $32 for the Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2014 and received approximately $173 worth of product (without considering the value of the bag – which is totally going to be my new sunscreen holder bag – I need a spot with all these samples!!), which is pretty close to the $177 value promised (again with no bag!) In addition, I also received approximately $7 worth of sample products! Even though a few of the samples weren’t for me (tanners/bronzers) – this bag was AMAZING and will keep me stocked in sunscreen for awhile!
