If you are planning to get the Sephora Sun Safety Kit please check all available Sephora Favorites kits at Sephora Favorites or new skincare 2019. It can go live online anytime (last year it was available on April 9th, 2018)!

Every year Sephora releases their Sephora Sun Safety Kit in spring. It is a multi-brands set contains tons of decent sunscreen, sun care and SPF beauty goodies. There is no subscription required.

Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit 2019 includes:

The item with (*) refers to mineral or physical sun care. There are six repeating items (+) from last year from brands Drunk Elephant, Shiseido, Dr Jart+, FRESH,  Murad and Peter Thomas Roth.

This set is always the greatest value and the most popular of all Sephora Favorites Kits. It always sells out really quick. Every year Sephora will donate part of the sale to charity. Here’s the Sephora Sun Safety Kit last year (my post here).

I was lucky to grab this new Sephora Favorites Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2019 at my local Sephora store. Call ahead before you make a trip if they have it in-stock. Typically, there are two versions: Sephora Favorites Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2019 at Sephora.com and another one at Sephora inside JCPenney. I never came across the JCPenney kit.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 Review | Full size $52

sephora sun safety kit 2019 review icangwp blog shiseido sunscreen

IcanGWP Review: This product made its way to my 4-in-1 sunscreen hall of fame since the legendary Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2018 launched. First, it’s a great green CC cream that will do the job correcting red and brown spots.  Second, it’s a fantastic sunscreen. Third, the balm-like texture is an excellent primer that is not pore-clogging at all. Finally, this is a nice treatment with alternative ingredients. TOTALLY recommended!

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Wetforce For Face Review  | Full size $36, Travel size $20

IcanGWP Review: Shiseido makes many of my all-time favorite sunscreens. This is a great rescue sunscreen for swimming days! It is a water resistant (80 minutes) sunscreen with Wetforce technology. It contains a little bit of alcohol and fragrance but it is also a very water-resistant formula, high SPF and contains great antioxidants.

This creamy sunscreen adds a subtle sheen to my skin. Not sticky and can wear well with makeup. When I wash my skin with everyday facial foam it did nothing to this sunscreen. You need a little bit of oil-based makeup remover to clean it. I highly recommend this product for outdoor humid days or swimming. You will feel like it truly protects your skin from the sun. FYI – 16% Zinc Oxide may leave white-ish cast, test it out!

I have tried Anessa, which is a sister brand of Shiseido (available in Japan and Amazon here). It is also water resistant but it is a sunscreen milk, not cream.

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 Review | Full size $24 Available in 14 shades

sephora sun safety kit 2019 review icangwp blog fresh

IcanGWP Review: We need SPF for our lips too. It’s hard finding a lip balm with decent SPF + decent ingredients. When it comes to tinted lip balm/treatment with SPF, there are not many prestige or high-end beauty options. If you have sunburned your lips, you know it is really painful. Fresh Lip Treatment is like a cross between a lip balm and lipstick. It glides on smoothly and offers a hint of shine. Not too much color.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Review | Full size is $42

IcanGWP: This mineral sunscreen has a light pleasant citrus scent but it does fade quickly. It has semi-matte finish. I agree with most reviewers that there’s no white cast. There are two forms of vitamin C in it for dark spot corrector. It is an okay option.

Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion Review | Full size $42

sephora sun safety kit 2019 review icangwp blog origins

IcanGWP: This product contains 6 chemical active ingredients. Good chemical sunscreen needs multiple ingredients combined in order to achieve broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. However, people with skin that can take it really love it. This product is fragrance-free.

Sometimes we should stick with short ingredient list beauty products. But for PTR, it has long been known as a pioneer in highly effective anti-aging skincare. He is more adventurous and willing to take a risk. The Ordinary Skincare and Paula’s Choice are also a good example of this style. If the maximum strength allowance in skincare is 2%, you will see these three brands offering it. Most luxury brands will avoid using possible irritants. What is your style? Can your skin handle extra strength skincare?

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ Review | Full size $65 – $80

sephora sun safety kit 2019 review icangwp blog supergoop sunscreen

IcanGWP Review: This product is so unique: a 3-in-1 primer, sunscreen and moisturizer. It has a silky gel-like texture. It goes on smooth like a primer. Once it is dried, it doesn’t leave any grease on the skin like most sunscreens. I think that oily/combination skin may give this product a try. For those with sensitive skin, there’s fragrance in it. In terms of sun protection, it might not be enough for a long day. I have read somewhere that we have to use so much to cover our face. It will ball up if I use that much, just so you know.

NOTE: For IcanGWP men readers, gel sunscreen is the best option for areas with body hair (like arms, beards). See Gel Sunscreen search results at Sephora or Nordstrom.

IcanGWP: People love that this setting spray helps their makeup last all day with added sunscreen! But they also think that it has high alcohol content and weird fragrance so it won’t be for everyone. No grease, it has matte finish when dry. It is so convenient and easy to use. FYI – All inactive ingredient list is presented in alphabetical not descending order.

Quick Take:

The best skincare item that has proven to effectively prevent premature skin is sunscreen. This kit will get us cover from head to toe and address all our SPF needs: face, lips, waterproof or misting spray. They are profoundly powerful sun care items that protect and fight aging in any manner. Yet they are joyous to use and excel with my regular skincare and makeup routine.  For me, it’s affordable, effective, fun, easy to use and most importantly for a very good cause.

A Quick Sunscreen Buying Guide

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging skincare we must own. If you are prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin, you will likely know from experience that finding the right sunscreen can be a challenging task. Some sunscreens break you out, wear off, leave some ugly white-ish cast, ball up and etc.

How to pick the right one from those with weird labels: SPF thing, PA thing, mineral, chemical or physical thing, UVA, UVB thing? What ingredients in sunscreen to avoid?

I will try to conclude it in a few lines so that we can enjoy the new Sephora Sun Safety Kit together even more!


UVB = Burn (cause sunburn + blocked by window glass)

UVA = Aging (we can’t feel it but it can cause all aging problems + and can pass through window glass)


SPF is an indication for UVB or sunburn protection. Minimum requirement by FDA is SPF 15. American Academy of Dermatology recommends at least SPF 30 (as of June 2016).


Broad-spectrum protection means it will protect against both UVA and UVB rays.


Recently, they will use these terms: Water Resistant (effective for up to 40 minutes in water) or Very Water Resistant (effective for up to 80 minutes in water).


PA followed by plus signs are Japanese rating of the UVA protection of a sunscreen. PA+++ indicates the highest level of UVA protection. PA+ means some UVA protection. North Americas do not have indication for UVA yet. But you can look for the ingredients below.

UVA active ingredients?

Look for zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone, Mexoryl SX, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, or Tinosorb.

Mineral Vs Chemical?

Classic sunscreens use chemical (non-mineral, traditional, syntactic) active ingredients designed to absorb and dissipate UVA/UVB rays.

Mineral sunscreens use mineral (or physical) active ingredients such as Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays.

Sunscreen ingredients options for special needs?

Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are preferred for sensitive skin, rosacea, or children.

People concern about?

May be Retinyl palmitate and Oxybenzone?
