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!
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!
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!
