Out of all the beauty and makeup kits and value sets available, my favorite by far are the, amusingly enough, the Sephora Favorites.
This kit came out around January, when Sephora had all their skin care specials, but you might still be able to find it in-store if you're interested in purchasing (I've seen it still in stock at my local Sephora's; it has popped up online once or twice, but you'll have better luck at a physical store). Sometimes, I can't always justify buying the makeup kits because I worry about being able to use up all the products before they go bad, but I don't worry about skin care because it's something I use every single day and I know I will go through it!
This kit includes twelve skin care products in deluxe sample, travel, and full sizes. Some people complain that the sizes of the products in these kits are shrinking, and they're not wrong; I do remember getting larger samples and more full sized products in the past, but I also think that the ratio of value versus price paid for these kits has remained about the same and it's the prices of the products themselves that have risen and caused the sample sizes to shrink. This kit cost me $48 (before tax) and is supposed to have a value of about $147.
Overall, I got twelve different skin care products; three of them were travel/full sizes (sizes that can be purchased individually) and the other nine were deluxe sample sized. After calculating out the values of each product, I came to a total kit value of $141.15, which is a little less than the $147. A $6 difference is not the biggest deal (and could be explained by different methods of calculating value), but it does kind of bother me that the value is a little less than promised. If Sephora just said this kit was worth $140, I still would have bought it and then I would have been happy that the actual value was more than what was quoted. Even with a smaller than promised value, I still think I got my $48 worth because I know I will use almost every single product in this kit (the only one I'm considering giving away is the Korres moisturizer). I'm also super happy that, at least to my knowledge, none of these products have argan oil in them (of course, I will take a closer look at the ingredients before using them, but nothing's caught my attention yet). If you're a skincare junkie like me, this is an excellent kit for the money and, if you see at you're local Sephora, I recommend picking it up!
