Is the Sephora Sun Safety Kit Worth It?

Luckily (unluckily?) Sephora is a glitchy website. As a result, they accidentally revealed the contents of their 2013 Sun Safety kit ahead of schedule. Thus, you get some extra time to examine, research, and compute this bag's worthiness with no "OH MY GOD IT'S GOING TO SELL OUT ON ME" time crunch. I took the liberty of calculating out the approximate retail value of this kit based on Sephora's full sized prices.
Sneak Peek
  • 0.03 oz bareMinerals® Original Mineral Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 25 AND Mini Flawless Application Brush, approximate retail value $2.86
  • 0.5 oz Boscia Self-Defense Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30, approximate retail value $12.86
  • 0.3 oz Clarins UV Plus HP Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 40, approximate retail value $7.06
  • 0.25 oz Dr. Brandt Signature Flexitone BB Cream SPF 30, approximate retail value $9.75
  • 1 Towelette Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Glow Pad, approximate retail value $0.77
  • 0.5 oz Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40, approximate retail value $14.00
  • 0.5 oz Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Cream, approximate retail value $13.24
  • 0.5 oz L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Hand Care SPF 20, approximate retail value $5.19

  • 0.5 oz Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner, approximate retail value $3.36
  • 0.14 oz Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder with Real Cocoa, approximate retail value $12.00
Total Kit Value: $149.00

That is so much stuff I actually got bored copy/pasting ", approximate retail value" after each item. There's definitely a few things in this kit that I would never touch and a few things that I already own. However, given the fact that this kit contains five times the value of its $30 price tag, it's a steal even if you hate half of the products.

There is currently no official release date for the kit. I suppose they don't think it's hot enough yet, so they gave us one more reason to sweat.

Update 5/18/13: The Sephora Sun Safety Kit is now available for purchase for Beauty Insiders.


  1. Wowzers, what a steal! I'm not sure I really *need* any of these, but good God, for $30 I might buy it anyways. Yep, I've managed to talk myself into it. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Woah, that's a ton of moisturizer

  3. It's available at the Sephora store inside JC Penny at the moment.. I tried to get it at the actual Sephora store and they informed me that they had not begun selling it yet.
    This one was such a steal, I won't even lie I *couldn't* say no!

  4. Cool stuff! i will buy it soon, right now i`m explore sephora discount coupon codes more.

  5. Hey, this year's just popped out, gotta be VIB Rouge to buy it currently. Since last year's was a good deal, I grabbed this one.
