Gifting skincare is always a safe option – whether you’re treating someone to a high-priced gadget or your kicking off their skincare journey with a selection of minis, skincare sets are always used and appreciated (especially as the cost of a skincare routine adds up quickly).
Struggling with last minute present ideas for the skincare obsessive in your life? From a face mask stash to an at-home spa kit, here’s what they’ll be hoping to find under the tree this year.
1. BEAUTY BAY Skincare Superstars
The skincare-obsessed friends or family members in your life will love Skincare Superstars. It’s quite literally a lineup of all-star skincare products – featuring a mix of staples (like Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel), viral products (such as Sol de Janeiro’s iconic Bum Bum Cream), and products that we’re convinced are going to be the next big thing (we’re looking at you, Nursem Caring Skin Fix).
2. Laneige Kiss Me Day & Night
For those who always share their skincare routines on TikTok, it has to be Laneige’s Kiss Me Day & Night . This duo will keep your lips hydrated around the clock – just apply the brand’s viral lip mask at night and lip balm by day. From the aesthetic packaging to the lip-plumping results, what’s not to love?
3. The Ordinary The Clear Set
The Ordinary’s The Clear Set is the perfect stocking-filler for skincare newbies; a gentle cleanser to use day and night, a breakout -clearing serum to target spots, and a lightweight moisturiser to complete the routine.
4. By BEAUTY BAY The Glowing Skin Starter Set
What better gift to give than the gift of good skin? The Glowing Skin Starter Kit contains By BEAUTY BAY’s glow-boosting Oil Serum Hybrid, as well as the Gel Moisturiser and cleanser and toner boosted with vitamin C and niacinamide – perfect for brightening dull winter skin.
5. Higher Dose Red Light Face Mask
In 2024, no skincare routine will be complete without a red light face mask. Sure, it sounds high maintenance, but it’ll massively improve their skincare routine – and is surprisingly so easy to fit into your routine. Just plug it in, Netflix, and chill…
6. Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Face & Eye Power Pairs
The Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Face & Eye Power Pairs contains the brand’s bestselling Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, alongside the viral skin-tightening eye gel, an exfoliating peel, and a soothing cucumber gel mask. Perfect for the person in your life who wants a complete skincare refresh.
7. Dr. Jart+ Mask Multipack Gift Set
You can’t really go wrong with a stash of face masks, especially when they work as well as these. The Dr. Jart+ Mask Multipack Gift Set is the ultimate present for a beauty obsessive who performs a nightly masking ritual – you’ll want to keep it for yourself.
8. Dermalogica Hydration On-The-Go
Part of Dermalogica’s limited edition holiday collection, the Hydration On-The-Go is hands down the most useful skincare trio you can get your hands on. Approved by facialists and beauty editors worldwide, the Skin Smoothing Cream, Circular Hydration Serum, and Daily Milkfoliant are all you need for 24/7 hydration.
9. Zitsticka Ex-Zit Strategy Kit
Think of Zitsticka’s Ex-Zit Strategy Kit as a first aid kit for spots – it features everything you need to deal with breakout emergencies – from spot patches for individual blemishes through to face masks for all-over flare ups.
10. By BEAUTY BAY The Breakout Starter Set
The perfect gift for the one who’s on a mission to clear their skin. The Breakout Starter Kit features a cleanser, toner, moisturiser, mask, and hydrolloid spot patches. Essentially a full skincare routine (just add SPF), this will set them up for clearer, calmer skin.
11. Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Moisture Boost Gift Set
Ceramide-based skincare has been one of 2023’s biggest beauty trends, so true skincare obsessives will definitely appreciate this one. Dr. Jart+’s Ceramidin Moisture Boost Gift Set is the perfect introduction for anyone new to the trend, containing three of the brand’s bestselling products.
12. NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate
End their eternal search for the best eyecare product by putting NIOD’s Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate underneath the tree. This souped-up serum formula is packed with powerful active ingredients which improve skin’s firmness, density, and elastivity – resulting in reduced fine lines and crow’s feet.
14. Clinique Great Skin Everywhere
Possibly the most practical and efficient skincare gift set we’ve seen. Clinique’s Great Skin Everywhere set contains mini and full-size versions of three of their most iconic products. So you can kickstart a new skincare routine at home and maintain it while you’re on the go.
15. Sand & Sky Clear & Clean Duo
Those who mask on a daily basis to keep their skin clear will appreciate the Clear & Clean Duo, which contains Sand & Sky’s bestselling Pore Refining Face Mask and Deep Pore Cleanser. Both utilise the powerful detoxifying benefits of Australian pink clay, which helps to smooth skin and clear congestion.
