Sephora’s yearly Sun Safety Kit is a constant bestseller, and for good reason – I mean, where else are you going to find that many adorable sample-sized sunscreens and fake-sun creams in one set? (I wanted to say sunscreens, sun creams, and [something else], but then I ran out of relevant word pairs starting with “sun.” Sun dreams? Sun teams?)
Anyhow, more relevant topics; this year brings the sixth edition of the kit, with 100% of the net proceeds going to the Skin Cancer Foundation. As far as I know, this item is not yet available on the Canadian Sephora site, but it’s $30 on the US one.
The 17-piece 2012 Sun Safety Kit includes…
⇒ SPF 20 and over
– Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil + brush
The ultimate finishing powder just got an extra dose of sun protection, for even more beautiful benefits. Apply using the Mini Flawless Application Brush that’s included to ensure medium-to-full sun protection.
