Sephora Favorites: Crush-Worthy Skincare Kit Review
This didn’t come with a detailed info sheet, but the packaging did include the ingredients for each item.
The items in this kit came in this fun peach bag! It is flexible and the inside will wipe clean with ease if anything ever spills. I also thought it could fit a decent amount, too.
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $10 (buy the 0.66 oz version for $20)
I love Caudalie- their formulas are usually great, and their grape water is my favorite facial mist of all time. This moisturizer is a lightweight gel-cream that sinks easily into my skin and the second ingredient on the list is my beloved grape water!
Fresh Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream, 0.07 oz – Estimated Value $12.13 (buy the full-size version for $26)
This is such a great lip balm! Its made with sugar (to prevent moisture loss), sea fennel (to smooth fine lines), and orange extract (to protect your lips). This does provide long-lasting moisture to my chronically dry lips, and I like the light wash of pink this tinted version provides.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, 0.30 oz – Estimated Value $7.41 (buy the 0.85 oz version for $21)
I love this line- the watermelon gel mask is one of my favorite sheet masks of all time, and I am on my second full-size jar of the sleeping mask. This moisturizer is a great way to get my watermelon fix whenever I want to feel fresh. It has a light watermelon scent that I personally find amazing, and it is very lightweight. I do think this line is geared more towards oily skin, so if you have dry skin you’re probably going to want to layer this with something heavier.
Hum Nutrition Glow Sweet Glow, 6 gummies – Estimated Value $2.50 (buy the full-size version for $25)
These vegan gummies are made with hyaluronic acid and Vitamins A and C to help your skin glow. A three day supply isn’t enough to determine if this is going to help me look lit from within (I believe you would need to take these for 4-6 weeks to really see results, if any), but they are enough to confirm they taste good- they taste like orange!
Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $4.05 (buy the full-size version for $34)
This cleanser is incredibly gentle- when I have hormonal acne breakouts I have to make sure I don’t use aggressive cleansers or it will irritate my skin further, and this fits the bill perfectly for cleansing without irritating.
Lancome Rose Sugar Scrub, 1.6 oz – Estimated Value $11.98 (buy the full-size version for $25)
I honestly have no idea if this scrub is a body scrub or a face scrub, but I chose to use it on my arms and hands. The sugar exfoliation is gentle but effective, and it left my skin softly scented with sweet rose. I’m a fan!
Saturday Skin Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel, 0.33 oz – Estimated Value $3.65 (buy the full-size version for $28)
Saturday Skin is definitely one of the trendy brands of the moment (I suspect the millennial pink packaging plays a big role), so including this peeling gel in the kit was smart on Sephora’s part. Honestly, peeling gels aren’t my preferred way to exfoliate- I believe a part of it is all gimmick, though it may provide mild exfoliation. This was gentle on my skin and it did feel a bit softer after using, but I didn’t experience a brightening effect.
Sephora Collection Rose Face Mask – Retail Value $6
This a pretty good sheet mask made with rose extract to hydrate and brighten, but I definitely think you can find just as effective (or better) sheet masks for a lower price. This also has fragrance near the top of the ingredients list, which is what most likely provides the light rose scent.
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist, 1.01 oz – Estimated Value $6.33 (buy the 3.04 oz version for $19)
The Bum Bum cream from Sol De Janeiro is a cult classic thanks to its pistachio and salted caramel scent, and this body spray is the same bum bum scent that you can spray all over. I actually adore this body spray, and I love to spray it on after a shower before I get dressed so my entire body can smell great without being overpowering. On days my hair is up and I’m in yoga pants I don’t reach for my higher end perfumes, and this spray is perfect for being low maintenance and still smelling great.
Volition Beauty Snow Mushroom Water Serum, 0.17 oz – Estimated Value $10.54 (buy the 1 oz version for $62)
My skin really loves mushroom as an ingredient, so I was happy to try this serum. I don’t have much experience with Volition Beauty, but this serum impressed me—the first ingredient on the list is mushroom extract, rather than water! This was hydrating and helped my skin to look supple and nourished. I would definitely consider grabbing this in the full-size.
The Verdict: As soon as Sephora released this kit I knew I had to have it – the mini SDJ body spray is one of the cutest things I have ever seen, and almost all of these products were new discoveries for me. I also definitely like the makeup bag this kit came in, too! Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $74.39, which I think is fair.
