Our holiday gifting motto this year? In the spirit of Oprah, “You get a beauty set! You get a beauty set! You get a beauty set!” That’s because they’re easy to wrap, cost-effective and often packed with best-selling or buzzy items that are worth a try. We’re talking product bundles so good—from brands including Dr. Dennis Gross, Briogeo and Olive & June—we fully intend on keeping a few for ourselves. Here, the 12 best holiday beauty sets to shop this year.
The 12 Best Holiday Beauty Sets to Gift...or Keep for Yourself
1. Kosas The Clean Start Set: Lip Alert
Here’s a gift even your too-cool cousin will appreciate: This trio of Kosas’s most popular lip products. Even better, you can customize your set by choosing exactly which shade of lip balm, lipstick and lip oil gloss you want to include. Worn alone or layered, your lips will stay hydrated and plump.
3. Briogeo Scalp Revival Soothing Solutions Value Set
You’ve raved about Briogeo’s scalp massager to your sister too many times to count, so it’s about time you got her one of her own. And while you’re at it, you may as well gift her this set, which also contains the brand’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask, Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment and Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo.
4. Skinceuticals Anti-aging System
This set features SkinCeuticals’s legendary C E Ferulic treatment, which means it's bound to sell out. Just keep in mind that with anti-aging in the name, you might offend your MIL if you stick this skincare bundle in her stocking. Oh well, guess you’ll just have to keep it for yourself…
5. Grande Cosmetics 2-step Lash System Set
Multiple PureWow staffers swear by GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum, so when we saw that this set includes a 4-week trial size tube of the formula, plus the GrandeMASCARA Conditioning Peptide Mascara for a little over 20 dollars, our jaw dropped. Yup, this is definitely a gift you’re going to want to slip into your own stocking.
8. Dr. Dennis Gross Let It Glow Set
This limited-edition set features Dr. Dennis Gross’s iconic Alpha Beta Peel Pads at a fraction of their typical price. Oh, and it comes with a tube of Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel and three Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment Peel Pads so you can get silky, glowing skin from head to toe.
