What's one thing that would make me love the Sephora Favorites kits even more than I already do(well, besides more products for less money...)? Making the boxes holographic!
The kit I want to show you in this post is the Scouted By Sephora kit; this is a skincare specific kit that highlights brands and products that are new or uncommon. I have definitely not tried any of the products included in this kit and some of the brands are completely new to me!
This kit is currently available from Sephora.com, and is most likely available in-store as well (I haven't been to a physical Sephora in a surprisingly long time, so I don't know for sure); for $44 you get seven deluxe sample sizes (one product is actually three individual use packets) and one full size product with a retail value of $150.
and the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum. The back of the box info is pretty minimal; you get ingredients (which are quite important), the size of the product, and its country of origin. I do wish Sephora found a way to also include usage directions since it's not always printed on the samples themselves. It's not difficult to look up, Sephora includes them for each product on the website, but I'm not always near my computer when I want to try a new product.
So how does this box stack up? I got eight products, one full size and seven deluxe size samples, with a total value of approximately $130.35, which is more than the $44 I paid, but less than the promised $150 value. I thought this kit had a great variety of products, though there are two masks (to be fair, one is a clay mask and one is a gel-based sleeping mask) and two exfoliants (again, they are different; one is a radiance peel and one is a chemical/physical exfoliant combo). I also really like the variety of brands; some have been done to death in these kits, but these have been featured in only a few, if any (the Estee Edit products have been featured a bit lately, but that's only because the line is exclusive to Sephora and I think they're really trying to market it). I think this kit is worth it, especially if you're like me and love trying new skincare products, but I will say that you are getting about $20 less worth of products than the promised value, which is kind of lame.
Thanks for reading! <3
