Products to Protect Your Skin from the Sun from Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit 2012

This week, I want to make all my followers aware that it is extremely important to protect yourself from the sun.  In my last blog, “5 Ways to Avoid Skin Cancer”, I shared some tips that people can use to avoid too much sun exposure.  But what products can you use besides sunscreen to protect your skin?  In this post, I will share some wonderful high end products that you can purchase at Sephora.  I introduce to you, the products from the Sun Safety Kit 2012.

A few months ago, I posted the photo below on my Instagram, with the mystery of what was in the box.  Some of you were curious and I appreciate your enthusiasm!  Although, I am sure you all forgotten it by now, due to the fact that I am a tad delayed with this post, the wait is over and the big product review is here!  Apparently, Sephora has been releasing a Sun Safety Kit for about 6 years now.  Sun safety is very important to me, and I am a huge advocate of protecting your skin while outdoors. Sephora includes a variety of deluxe sized samples in this kit, which gives us all a wonderful opportunity to try new and useful products!  The best part is 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation!  With a retail value of $193, this kit was sold exclusively at Sephora for $30.  Unfortunately, I believe this kit is now unavailable, however, you can purchase your favorite full sized products individually at Sephora or on their website.

Please watch my video below and check out what my favorite products are!  If you don’t have time to watch, check out below, as I have listed all 17 products that came in Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit 2012.

    • Haha…i don’t blame you!! I would get the tinted moisturizer but not the expensive sun tan lotion. it was still nice to have samples of though :)

  1. I’ve heard many great things about the Ole Henriksen and the Shiseido Sunscreens, none are available where I live, though, which is why I use Nivea or Hawaiian Tropic. I’d love to try the Shiseido one because I’ve heard it works great for oily skin. Maybe I’d find them at duty free shops or something. Thanks a lot for sharing, we can never be TOO protected from the sun ^^

    • absolutely right! i have never used nivea sunscreen…im gonna have to check it out :)

    • so happy you enjoyed it! this lip balm i listed is a bit pricey, but there are so many good balms out there, you shouldnt have any trouble :)

  2. You have me sold on the St. Tropez…I gotta try this stuff! :)

    Great review as always!! Love the details and pictures!

    • why thank you so much!!! yeah i enjoyed this self tanner….my mother and sister kept telling me how natural it looked!

    • ahh not in australia!!! thats just wrong!!! lol i want to go to australia! one of the top places i would love to visit :)

    • the only place i saw it advertised was in the email notification i got! sign up for their newsletter and look out for it next year :)

  3. Thank you so much for showing this kit and doing a video on it! I saw this a few months ago at Sephora and didn’t reach for it because of the $30 price tag! However after seeing your video I will definitely be picking this up if my local Sephora still caries it, the samples in this kit seem worth it and to hear that they donate 100% of the proceeds to the skin cancer foundation, is simply wonderful!

    • I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Its really great testing out all of these products, and it is wonderful that the proceeds go to a great cause! if sephora doesnt have it, be sure to look for it next year!!
