It's SUNday!

Hey everyone! Happy Memorial Day Weekend. With the summer creeping up on us, we hear it every year, "Do you have sun screen?", if the answer is "no"...then there is potential skin troubles in the near future!

Here are some facts from The Skin Cancer Foundation website;
"Between 40 and 50 percent of Americans who live to age 65 will have either skin cancer at least once"
"Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for young people 15-29 years old."  
On that note. I recently purchased the Sephora Sun Safety Kit, and it comes with a ton of sun savvy products to keep your skin in tip top shape.

This kit comes with 12 samples of all types of products, ranging from sunscreen to primer, plus a tote bag! All the proceeds from this kit goes to the Skin Cancer Foundation. The best part about this, is the price!! It is valued at $147, but Sephora was selling it for $25!

Here are all of the products that were included,
and the cute tote bag, (perfect for the beach or pool!)

Since there are too many products to discuss in this one post, I will do a new product that came in the kit every Sunday! 

The first product I will be reviewing is...
Ole Henriksen's Fresh Lips!

I was really excited to try this product out, because my lips always get dry, and in the summer I feel like I can never moisturize them enough. The product is suppose to;
"Protect, hydrate, and plump"
I think the best part about Fresh Lips, is that it has SPF 15 in it! When I first put this on my lips, I initially thought "Wow, this feels really creamy." Then I started to feel a tingling sensation, which of course is the plumper, but it was not too overwhelming like some lip plumpers are, this was more of a minty feeling.

The slight scent the product has I believe is from the natural ingredients (Yes, that's right! It's a natural product!).  The only con I have about this product is, not that it is sticky or waxy, because it's not. It is that I did not find it extremely moisturizing. Maybe I was just expecting too much from this product!

This will without a doubt be in my purse, and beach/pool bag all summer!

You can purchase Ole Henriksen here from Sephora.

Stay safe this weekend, and keep your skin safer!!

**Sephora just stopped selling this kit unfortunately, but you can still purchase all the items that were in the kit separately.
