Sephora Favorites Review

Variety is the spice of Life…  If you live by that philosophy or even if you are just a big makeup or skincare junkie,  you need a Sephora Favorites Box in your life!

I just love the Sephora Favorites and I take every opportunity that I can to get my hands on one! They are a staple on my Birthday, Mother’s Day, Anniversary and Christmas Lists! And they make a great gift for any Beauty Lover!

If you aren’t familiar with them, Sephora Favorites are exclusive limited edition sets of Sephora’s top selling products and latest beauty obsessions.  The boxes are normally themed and contain a variety of skincare and makeup products.  They often include cult favorites and brands you’ve probably been wanting to try.  The boxes contain generous sample sizes (and sometimes full sizes) of everything from favorite bronzers and lipsticks to skincare serums, hair care and perfume. I love them because they are a great way to try a bunch of different products at a reasonable price.  They’re also an excellent way to sample products you’ve been wanting to try before handing over the bigger bucks for the full sized product.

Just take a look at the Sephora Favorites Box I received last Christmas! (pictured below).  This set called “Get Glowing” included eleven skincare products all themed around glowing skin.

Sephora Favorites Review - Get Glowing Kit
This Sephora Favorites Box included eleven skincare products for glowing skin!

Here are the products that were included in the Get Glowing Sephora Favorites Box.

  • Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream
  • First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
  • Glamglow Dreamduo Overnight Transforming Treatment
  • Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial
  • Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
  • Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer
  • Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask
  • Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Stress Smoothing Eye Mask
  • Sunday Riley Modern Skincare C.E.O. C + E Protect & Repair Moisturizer
  • Tarte Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer

While I thoroughly enjoyed trying out ALL of the products, two stood out and became favorites.  I have since purchased the full sized versions of Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum and Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer.

And for Mother’s Day, I received this fabulous Sephora Favorites Box called “Let Love Glow”. This box contained twelve skincare goodies themed around getting your skin glowing and ready for Summer.

Can you tell I love a good glow???

The Sephora Favorites Let Love Glow Box included these 12 goodies for summer ready, glowing skin!

Included in the Let Love Glow Box were these skincare products and I loved quite a few of them.  Three stood out and became favorites with one being one of my favorite products of 2018!  Included in the box were:

  • Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
  • Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
  • Korres Greek Yogurt Smoothie Priming Moisturizer
  • Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil for the Face
  • Clinique Moisture Surge Auto Replenishing Hydrator
  • Fresh Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy
  • Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Gel and Cream Moisturizer
  • Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For No Filter Mattifying Primer
  • GLAMGLOW WaterBurst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer
  • First Aid Beauty – Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask
  • Origins Original Skin Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly
  • Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil

Two that I will definitely be purchasing full sized versions of are Josie Maran’s Whipped Argan Oil For The Face, a lightweight moisturizer that is pure heaven for those with sensitive skin.  And the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream… This firming body cream is said to be the secret weapon the Brazilian Babes use to keep their skin firm, moisturized and glowing.  I promise you will not wear this cream without someone telling you how great you smell!  Every time I wear it, I get people ask what perfume I am wearing.  I tell them, “it’s Bum Bum Cream”!  Even hubby (who never notices anything) asked what I had on the first time I wore it.

These two are fabulous, but hands down my favorite from this box and one that is going on my 2018  Favorites List is Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial.

This product is an at home glycolic acid peel that you use once per week and it is oh, so, GOOD!  Use this product on Sunday Night and you’ll wake up Monday morning with the softest, glowing skin.  Makeup goes on perfectly.  Such a good way to get the benefit of glycolic acid on your skin and you only have to use it once per week! Totally in love with this product.

Unfortunately, both of these Sephora Favorites Boxes are no longer available.  All of the boxes are “limited edition” and are normally around only a couple of months.  The good news is, they always have a variety of Boxes in stock year round.   As of right now, there are Nineteen different Sephora Favorites Boxes available.  You can find everything from Give Me Some Nude Lip ( a collection of 5 best selling nudes, including 2 full sized!) to Sunkissed Glow (a collection of bronzer and highlighting essentials).

See the bottom of this post for ALL of the current available Sephora Favorites!

Sephora Favorites generally range in price from $24.00 – $80.00 USD.  Every one of them that I have tried has been so much fun and totally worth it!
