Sephora's Sun Safety Kit


One of my favorite ways to try out new products is in a collection of travel sized products, which usually are put out by a company and are a selection from one brand. But, I love when Sephora puts out a kit like this. Available now, Sephora's Sun Safety Kit is a great way to try out products from a wide variety of lines to see if they work for you.

I haven't tried any of these products yet, but they are all included in the kit and it is on my Sephora shopping list, which is growing longer by the minute! If I buy it you can be sure that I'll review each of the sunscreens in the kit, but in the meantime here's a bit of info (and the UV range if ingredients are available) of each one included! As a quick aside- I realize that most of these products do not contain broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. I do feel that for every day use you need both UVA and UVB protection, but likely it is fine to use a SPF 15 product. Fully broad spectrum and a higher SPF is much more important for more prolonged sun exposure than you get just driving to and from the grocery store each day.

  2. Hello, I have been reading as many posts of yours on sunscreen as I can! What is your feeling on the safety of Oxybenzone in products? It is in so many lotions, sunscreens, etc, but is it safe? Thanks!

  3. I'm not convinced at all that it is an issue. There were a few studies done looking at estrogenic effects, in rats. They exposed them to a lot more than you'd get by wearing sunscreen (and we're ignoring the fact that a rat isn't exactly a human) and they found that the uterus weighed a little more in those rats. I'm not sure that it means anything, and there have been so many other studies that haven't found any effects. If it worries you I'd avoid them, there are enough other products out there on the market that it should be easy, but I don't worry about it for myself.
