Enabler Alert: New Sephora Favorites Skincare Sets

Oooh, you guys.  Sephora is really tempting me with their latest round of Sephora Favorites.  I built into my project 25 pan that I'm allowed to get these if I want them, and I am REALLY thinking about it.  I have plenty of skincare samples stocked up but there are a ton of really awesome products I've been dying to try in these sets!  The price tag seems a bit hefty though; if they were in the $30 range I would have already purchased.

I am most excited about the Skin Cleanse set - I have been dying to try Glam Glow, ExfoliKate, and the peeling gel.  I loooooooooove masks and scrubs, they are my favorite beauty treats ever.  I would also be interested in the beauty oil essentials, mostly because I don't have a wide variety of oils in my stash and it's a great way to test a ton of them.   I could probably skip the first kit because I don't NEEEEEEEEEEED it, but I'd do so with a heavy heart.  

Now that I have put some distance between myself and the zillions of beauty box subscriptions, I am really starting to think that I could be content just buying every Sephora Favorites collection and calling it a day.  I am always so happy with the brands and the size of the samples, and I rarely look back on a kit and think "ehhh, that wasn't worth the money".  

What do you think...do any of these tempt you?

That middle one would be the one I picked up if I were going to. I am so picky about skin care, but I might look these up and see if it's worth it. I need to stop reading your blog - you make me spend money ;)

I have the Skin Cleanse one in my cart right now! I don't really know a lot about beauty oils. I have a couple of samples and I just don't know what to DO with them.

I, too, have never been disappointed by a Sephora Favorites collection. I'm working my way through a fragrance one now, and Lash Stash is ready to be opened any day now! :)

I saw the Beauty Oil Essentials kit when I was there the other day. UGH! Darn you, Sephora!
