Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2018 Review

See the 2019 Sephora Sun Safety Kit, and all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.


I’m here to bring you my Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2018 review. Sephora usually tempts me when it puts out a new Favorites Set. These sets retail for a lot less than the value of the items inside. As long as the items you plan on keeping exceed the value of the price you pay for the set, it is a good deal. This is one of my favorite ways to sample new items, and I like the sets even more when they have some full-sized items inside. While paying for samples is something I do often with subscription boxes, I limit how often I pay for samples in sets. The mystery of subscription boxes and desire to get things I would never purchase prevails in that case. When a set only has samples and costs over $20, I am less likely to purchase it. Paying for samples is not always a bad thing, especially when sets have items you really want to try, and you have not been able to get them for free or as a GWP.

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some New Lip Review

Give Me Some New Lip is a new Sephora Favorites Set. I love when Sephora puts out a new Favorites Set. These sets retail for a lot less than the value of the items inside. As long as the items you plan on keeping exceed the value of the price you pay for the set, it is a good deal. This is one of my favorite ways to sample new items, and I like the sets even more when they have some full-sized items inside. While paying for samples is something I do often in subscription boxes, I limit how often I pay for samples in sets.

Sephora Favorites 2017 Sets

I’ve decided not to write a general article for Sephora favorites sets in 2018. Any sets I purchase will get a dedicated article, including my purchase recommendation or advice to pass on it. Just view other Sephora Favorites articles, or use the search bar to see if I’ve reviewed the set you’re looking for. Though I did purchase a few sets in 2017, I did not blog much. Thus, I did not review any that were no longer available when I resumed. All of my 2015 and 2016 sets have reviews.

I track all Sephora offers. No one curates sets like Sephora. The Sephora Favorites sets always occupy at least three of my top five sets for the year, and I purchase a lot of sets from different retailers. This article will cover all Sephora Favorites sets for 2017 (other than the perfume and cologne sets). Those sets usually include a scent-certificate to redeem a freebie for the sample you liked most from the set, so it is a wonderful purchase for perfume or cologne lovers. There are a lot of great kits that exclusive to Sephora in JC Penney as well. As I rarely visit a SiJCP, I do not track its sets. They’re worth checking out if you shop there. If I ever happen upon a set from a SiJCP that I like enough to buy, I will write a separate article on it. At times, the SiJCP kits are smaller versions of one sold in Sephora. Other times, there are unique kits that are not available at Sephora at all.

Sephora Favorites Chic It Easy Review

No one puts Favorites Kits together the way Sephora does. The Sephora Favorites Chic It Easy set has great items for the bargain price of $49. I have a hard time passing on any of these sets. This is one I almost successfully passed on, not because I wasn’t interested in the set, but because I already owned so many items in the set. It finally hit me that most of the items I have duplicates of are items I will eventually run out of. Getting them in this set will actually save me a bit in the long run. Sephora actually released five new Favorites Kits a few days ago, and I once again find myself trying to resist them. Odds are I will not resist all of them.

Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip 2015

See the 2018 Give Me More Lip Review

When it comes to favorite sets, no one puts them together like Sephora. The Give Me More Lip Kit usually releases every year in mid September, but it released a little later this year. I have a really hard time passing on favorites that are makeup and skin care related causing me to buy more than I should. My favorite kit each year has is the Sun Safety or the Give Me More Lip. The smaller Give Me Some Lip Kit looked nice as well, but I sat on buying it for too long and missed out. It was cuter than the one I got in 2013 and 2014, so I regret my decision to wait until I had more used than unused lipsticks to buy it.

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares All

When it comes to favorites sets, no one puts them together like Sephora. I have a really hard time passing on favorites that are makeup and skin care related causing me to buy more than I should. The Sephora Favorites Kits have been hit or miss lately. Most products in sets are great even if they are repeats from earlier favorites, but I still cannot wrap my head around the $45 I paid for last year’s Summer Stash for a kit containing nothing but deluxe sizes. It is one I should have passed on.

I purchased Summer Stash on 04/19/14. As recently as June of 2015, they were still trying to move them for $30, which is 33.3% off. That should have told Sephora they priced it too high. As if I did not learn my lesson on the early summer release, I also purchased the Sephora Favorites Summer Crushes kit on 07/12/14 for $45. While the sizes were bigger, it was still a kit of deluxe sizes. To add insult to injury, the price went down online the day after I bought it. While some convinced me that I could get the price matched, I did not even bother trying.
