Sun Safety Kit - A Beauty Break

In April, Sephora and The Skin Cancer Foundation are proud to unveil the fifth edition of the Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit ($148 Value). This annual partnership in sun protection is one of Sephora’s most popular kits. The collection features SPF must-haves where 100% of the net profits will benefit The Skin Cancer Foundation. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer found in the United States and is also one of the most preventable. Help others become aware of this growing problem while defending yourself against the sun’s harmful rays.

Every year I look forward to the Sephora Sun Safety Kit because I get to try tons of different sunscreens and sunblocks without shelling out the big bucks for products that don't actually work with my skin. HELLO! $148 value for just $25.00! This year's kit includes:
