Beauty lovers rejoice — holiday beauty sets have arrived, and they do not disappoint. We’ve been through a lot this year, and I think it’s high time we all settle in for the holiday season and enjoy a few moments of self-care. Maybe that’s investing in your skin health with a new serum; maybe it’s spending a little extra time on the artistry of your makeup routine. Either way, there’s something for everyone this year, whether you’re self-gifting or in search of the perfect gift for your beauty obsessive BFF. Ahead, discover the best gifts for beauty lovers this year.
Sunday Riley Morning Buzz Vitamin C Trio
A gift for your skin, this a.m. kit delivers hydration and all-day radiance to every skin type. Includes brightening powerhouses: C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum that combats the look of dullness, C.E.O. Afterglow Vitamin C Brightening Gel Cream to plump and even skin tone, and C.E.O. Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil for a nurtured complexion.
Drybar The Smooth Crew Kit
This hot brush from DryBar blew up on TikTok this year, and for a good reason. You can create many looks with this single tool, and since it uses hot air instead of hot plates, it’s less damaging for the hair. It allows you to dry and style your hair at the same time. It comes in a gift set with four DryBar styling products and an additional (non-heated) brush, so you have everything you need to create amazing holiday hair.
YSL Feminine Fragrance Must-Haves
For the fragrance fanatic, you can’t go wrong with YSL. Black Opium is one of the fragrance house’s most iconic scents, featuring notes of coffee and vanilla for a sweet — yet robust — fragrance profile, while Mon Paris Eau de Parfum boasts a fruity floral scent.
NuFACE Fix Line Smoothing Device
If you’ve heard of the magic of the NuFace, but you’re not quite sure you’re ready to pay the full price for the device, then the NuFace Fix is a great place to start. This is a miniature, more portable version of the classic NuFace that uses the same microcurrent technology, just in a smaller size. It’s perfect for getting your feet wet with microcurrent (trust me, you’ll be hooked) or targeting smaller areas like the under-eyes and lips.
Spectrum Winnie the Pooh 6-Piece Hunny Brush Set
We all tend to hold onto our makeup brushes for way too long. For sanitary and performance reasons, it’s a good idea to replace your brushes once a year, and you can’t go wrong with this brush collection. This set features six high-performance brushes with a fingertip-mimicking dome design for flawless blending and natural finishes.
Sunday Riley Night Zzz’s Retinol Trio
True beauty lovers know that next to sunscreen, a quality retinol is the best anti-aging ingredient you can have in your skincare arsenal. True beauty lovers also know that applying a retinoid around the eye area can put you on the fast track to redness and irritation. That’s why dermatologists will often recommend using a different retinoid formula on the eye area than you do on the rest of your face, and that’s why the Night Zzz’s Retinoid Serum Trio is such a clutch gift set this holiday season. Featuring the brand’s best-selling A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum and Luna Sleeping Night Oil for your face alongside the 5-Stars Retinoid + Niacinamide Eye Serum, you have everything you need to fend off wrinkles and decongest skin overnight.
Dermaflash Dermapore Facial Pore Extractor
We’ve all been guilty of picking our pimples at one point or another. It can be so tempting — especially when your breakouts have come to a whitehead — but it’s a habit you should avoid as much as possible. A sterilized pore extractor is a much safer practice instead of squeezing, picking, and prodding at your breakouts. Devices like the Dermapore can safely lift a whitehead from the skin with significantly less scarring, redness, and irritation than squeezing with your fingers. Anyone in your life that’s dealing with acne will love this.
Sunday Riley Power of 3 Set
The hype behind Good Genes is very real, so if you know someone that’s already figured that out, then they’ll be super impressed with this kit, which also features Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum.
Olaplex Bond Maintenance™ Set
Olaplex changed the hair health game when they launched their famous No. 3 Hair Perfector, a mask that refortifies hair from the inside out. The brand has since launched a shampoo and a conditioner featuring the same innovative, bond-building technology. This year, you can get all three products together in the Bond Maintenance™ Kit.
Huda Beauty Love Your Nudes Kit
Huda Kattan has done it again for the holiday season. This year, her Love Your Nudes kit is taking center stage. For $44.00, you get the 9-well Nude Obsessions eyeshadow palette, a full-size Power Bullet Cream Glow Hydrating Lipstick, and a mini-size Legit Lashes Double-Ended Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara.
