hmmm seems the link I posted was deleted or at least I can't see it.  It was from foodbabe.  I'm sure if you google foodbabe and sunscreen you will get the link.

And I agree everything nowadays is bad for you.  I only believe that all the chemicals we eat and use on our skin can't be "good" either.  There has to be some sort of correlation logically.

I've seen a lot of those types of articles popping up lately. 

There have been a lot of studies that chemical sunscreens can be carcinogenic. Then again it seems like everything is now a days. Also something about how sunscreen blocks us from properly absorbing Vitamin D. A lot of these "studies" want you to eat more tomatoes & watermelon which are high in lycopene to get a "natural SPF" from within. 

Personally, I rather wear a broad spectrum sunscreen then nothing at all.

Very true.

 

I figure everything's going to kill us- and we're all going to die someday... so why not have fabulous, non-sun damaged skin?

 

Also- I'd like to smack the person who suggests tomatoes. Doctor or not, I burn within a few minutes.  And I've lost multiple family members to melanoma, so I'll take my chances with the chemicals.

I understand where you are coming from.  I am fair skinned and freckled.  It only takes about 10 minutes of sun light for my skin to have a red tint to it :smileysad:  I'm just going the organic route this year and see how it goes.  I guess I am just trying to be double safe.  I don't really care if it's a marketing ploy.  So long as I don't burn I'll be happy.  Some company is going to make money off me either way.

I usually get them every year, but missed out on it last year & regretted it. Even though I'm not crazy about this year's I'm still going to purchase it. 

I'm just surprised their's nothing for hair or lips this year ;(

Re: Sun Safety Kit 2013

Yeah i wish they could have added some lip and hair products. If they did I would defiantly no doubt buy it.

This looks more interesting than the description of the JCP specific kit.  There are more different sun screens than I thought there would be.  The self tanners don't interest me, but they never do.  I am interested in the hand cream and there are some other things that I would try out.  I know that I like the Clarins sunscreen a lot and found it due to one of these kits, so I am interested in trying some things.

So this is different than the one people have been picking up at JCP?

Re: Sun Safety Kit 2013

Slightly different yes. The JCP kit doesn't contain the Lancôme, L'Occitane, Origins, Clarins, or the second Sephora brand SPF.

I loved last year's kit (and I definitely still have some things left over from it to finish up), and I was really excited for this years. I'm kind of torn as to whether or not I want to get it. I think that if you've never purchased a Sephora Sun Kit before it's SO worth it for all of the products you get to try. For me the thing that's holding me back is that I already have or have tried about half of the things in here.  However, I am excited by all of the products I haven't tried.

 

I'm really curious about the Tarte sunless tanner, the Too Faced Bronzer, and the Flexitone BB.

 

Maybe I can see if my mom would want to go halfsies with me and we could share...

Re: Sun Safety Kit 2013

If i bought this year's, it would be my first so there's a lot of products I havent tried yet.. besides the toofaced bronzer. 

 

Oh thats a good idea! I usually do that with my mom too

Oooh! Just looked at it, I like the Bronzer & the smashbox primer. I may get it, but I know I will not use up all the products in here.

Yeah me either. There are a lot of items i want to try and for $30 i feel is such a good price. But still thinking!

Right? I'm debating though. I'm really into eyeshadow palettes right now and value kits, but I know I won't use up all the stuff in this kit. I think I'd rather get a palette! :smileytongue:
