Thanks to the blog My Subscription Addiction, I was alerted to the fact that Sephora had released their 2013 Sun Safety Kit. This kit sold out in a matter of days online, however, you may still be able to find one at your local Sephora store. There are also less expensive versions being sold exclusively at JcPenny locations, that have Sephora counters. The Sephora version is $30 ($210 retail value) and the JcPenny version is $26 ($159 retail value.) And, $20 of the $30 I paid, goes to The Skin Cancer Foundation as a donation! How cool is that?!
I had mentioned in my post here, how I have been recently committed to taking my skin care more seriously, since I'm turning 35 next year. I thought this kit was an amazing value and a great way to get to try a variety of high end products, in the hopes of finding a product I love!
The 19 products come in a clear Sephora make-up bag. It's shiny gold, with pink trim and a shiny gold Sephora zipper pull.
Now on to the products!
