Enabler Alert: Sephora Sun Safety Kit (SPOILERS!!)

Update:  See my review here!

As I mentioned in my May no buy rules, the one beauty purchase I am allowing myself this month is the Sephora Sun Safety Kit.  I didn't realize how fast it would sell out so I missed it last year, and it looked amazing.  The super sleuths over at makeuptalk have determined that the box will go on sale mid may (likely on Friday as a fan favorite, since that's what Sephora did last year), and that it will probably be at this link.  It was working a few days ago, but Sephora must have caught wind that it was leaked and removed the image.  Good thing I took a screenshot and LisaLeah from MUT copied the details!


This set contains:
- 0.03 oz bareMinerals® Original Mineral Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 25
- bareMinerals® Mini Flawless Application Brush
- 0.5 oz Boscia® Self-Defense Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30
- 0.3 oz Clarins UV Plus HP Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 40*
- 0.25 oz Dr. Brandt® Signature Flexitone® BB Cream SPF 30
- 1 Towelette Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Glow Pad™
- 0.5 oz Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40
- 0.5 oz Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Cream*
- 0.5 oz L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Hand Care SPF 20*
- 0.16 oz Miracle Skin Transformer Miracle Skin Transformer Face SPF 20
- 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Protect the Truth SPF 50+
- 0.5 oz Origins A Perfect World™ SPF 25 Age-Defense Moisturizer with White Tea*
- 0.5 oz Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skincare Max Sheer Day Moisture Defense® Lotion SPF 30
- 0.169 oz Sephora Collection Age Defy Moisture Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen*
- 0.64 oz Ultimate Protection Cream+ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+*
- 0.25 oz Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 20 with Dermaxyl™ Complex
- 1.69 oz St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion
- 0.5 oz Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner
- 0.14 oz Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder with Real Cocoa
- Cosmetic bag  

* Not included in the slimmed down store version (possibly JCP Sephoras only??) 

The picture above is the one that will be sold online for $30...it seems that there is also a version sold in stores for $26 that has a few less products.  If I get it, I will definitely pay the $4 and get the online version, since it has some of the brands I'm most interested in (Clarins, Origins, LancômeL'Occitane).  


As excited as I was about this, I'm not 100% committed to buying it yet.  Perhaps the no buy is really working?  I think I need to sit down with my sample collection and look at how many products I have with spf.  If I can make it through the summer without the Sun Safety Kit, it's a no go and I'll save half the money, and use the rest for one extra lunch with my friends.  

What do you think?  Interested?  Whether I get it or not, I'll be stalking the link and tweeting when it's available (@lauradiniwilk).

I'm almost never tempted by your various boxes but since I've already sunburned my nose TWICE this week I neeeed this. Need it. I'll be stalking your Twitter for the link and just hoping it doesn't sell out in 2 seconds.

I am absolutely buying it if I get there in time! I don't have the sample stash that you have, so I'm excited to try all these out. I'm super picky about sunscreen, especially for my face, so hopefully I can find something I love.
