Holiday Gift Guide 2017: The Best Skincare Sets For Everyone On Your List

by Gio

I know, I know, it’s not even December yet.

But, I don’t want you to end up like me. I always leave my Christmas shopping to the last minute and then kick myself in the butt because everything I want to buy is sold out. Ugh.

Holiday skincare sets are already in the shops so get yours now while you still can. 🙂 In case you’re wondering which ones are worth the money, I’m sharing my fave picks below.

These are the skincare sets I would be delighted to find under my Christmas tree and I’m sure your mom or BFF would love them, too. From beauty boosters that make your skincare go the extra mile to natural oils that fight dryness and wrinkles, there’s something in this holiday skincare gift guide for everyone on your list:

CAUDALIE GLOW ACTIVATING TRIO ($52.00)

DRUNK ELEPHANT THE LITTLES ($90.00)

You can’t go wrong with Drunk Elephant. They only have a small selection of products because they take the time to get each one of them right. They even have a bar soap that doesn’t dry out the skin! That’s a rarity, I tell you. This set has a few of my fave products from the line:

  • 1 oz/ 28 g Pekee Bar™

KATE SOMERVILLE ALL GLOW NO GLITTER EXFOLIKATE TRIO ($75.00)

A small collection of exfoliating products to make your skin glow like a star. But be warned: Exfolikate is too powerful for the faint of skin. If it’s sensitive, this isn’t the set for you. If it’s not, here’s what you’ll find inside:

  • 4 oz/ 120 mL ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash
  • 0.5 oz/ 15 mL ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
  • 1.7 oz/ 50 mL ExfoliKate Glow Moisturizer

Available at: Sephora

PAULA’S CHOICE BEAUTY BOOST SET ($165.00)

I love boosters. They’re just the thing to add anything extra your skin needs without overhauling your skincare routine. Why replace your fave moisturiser with one with hyaluronic acid when you could just mix a few drops of hyaluronic acid booster with it? This set has all the boosters you need for any skincare emergency:

  • RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster (20 ml / 0.67 fl. oz.)
  • RESIST C15 Super Booster (20 ml / 0.67 fl. oz.)

Have a friend who’s into natural skincare? Give her the gift of reship oil. This natural multitasker moisturises skin, fights wrinkles and even helps with acne! The set includes:

  • Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+
  • Cream Cleanser
  • Rosapene™ Radiance Serum

Available at: Feel Unique

LA ROCHE POSAY SENSITIVE SKIN TOLERIANE DELUXE COFFRET ($37.00)

Let’s face it: buying skincare for a friend with sensitive skin is often asking for trouble. But if you really want to give her a few lotions and potions, this set is pretty safe. La Roche Posay is known for its gentle products that even sensitive skin can usually tolerate. Inside, you’ll find:

  • Toleriane Cleanser 200ml
  • Thermal Spring Water 50ml
  • Toleriane Riche 40ml
  • Toleriane Ultra Night 40ml
