‘Tis the season to spoil all the special people in your life. And skin-care gift sets, whether you believe it or not, can be the ideal present for more people than you think for the 2022 holiday season. Yes, your K-beauty obsessed best friend and your old-school great aunt who’s still a ride or die for a Dove beauty bar will always appreciate some new creams and serums.
But this holiday season, it may be time to bestow the skin-care newbies in your circle with their starter packs. Does your dad complain about his cracked palms while working in the garage? It’s time for some hand cream. Does that cousin you only see on holidays apply layer upon layer of Aquaphor like their life force depends on it? A trio of cute little lip masks will do the trick.
No matter who is on your list — or what their skin concerns may be — brightening, firming, hydrating, and blemish-busting kits are all accounted for. Whats more, some of these limited-edition sets allow you to try these brand’s more luxe offerings in a much more affordable format. Some even come full size! And you’ll even find some Best of Beauty Award-winning brands on this list, which you and your loved ones can finally test for yourselves.
The kits below, including the Glow Recipe Pore-Tight Routine Kit, Charlotte Tilbury Recovery Skin Set, and Kate Somerville DeliKate Try Me Kit, will have your loved ones completely covered when it comes to filling holes in their skin-care routines — or granting them an entirely new one this season.
