Every year, in order to promote sun safety, Sephora releases a fun kit of deluxe samples. Now I have always wanted them, but didn’t jump on it. That is until this year.
You see, I didn’t realize that a rather larger portion is donated. $20 to be precise. So it didn’t make me feel like I was spending money frivolously…if that makes sense.
In any case, there was a fun sample code to use for an extra deluxe sample, so I put in my order.
And this is what I got for $38CAN.
What it does:
Sephora and The Skin Cancer Foundation are proud to unveil the eighth edition of the Sun Safety Kit. One of Sephora’s most popular kits, this collection features a huge array of products for tanning, bronzing, and protection for glowing summer skin in a bright travel bag. $20 from the sale of each kit will benefit The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Now, this is not as awesome as the previous years, but it is pretty nice in its own way. I was sitting on it for a few weeks, but in the end I decided to keep it as well. Again, it comes with a bunch of samples that you can test out, and move on to buying the regular sizes if they fit your routine.
This is unfortunately VERY hard to find now, as it was OOS online, and according to the locator on the website, OOS 150lm from my house. :T. But if you by chance come upon it, I would probably suggest that you do. Especially if you can snag it at the US price.
Some of the pieces I might have to pass along to friends, but for the most part, I’m pretty content.
Do you think that deluxe sample kits are worth the money and time to try out? Have you checked out the Sun Safety Kits in the previous years?
