The Best Self-Care Skincare Gifts for Anyone Who Needs Some TLCDecember 02, 2022
To help you sort through all of the options there, we compiled a list of the best self-care skincare gifts on the market. From a glow-inducing mask trio to an overnight skincare set, we have the best self-care skincare gifts for everyone on your list — plus options you can treat yourself to as well.
A Very Merry Mask Set
Give the gift of glowing skin this season. This set comes with three masks to unlock a lit-from-within radiance: a resurfacing facial, a detoxifying clay mask and a moisturizing overnight mask made with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to visibly brighten and hydrate the skin.
A Super-Powered Overnight Skincare Set
Skin needs some R&R too — and this set will make it happen. It contains full-size overnight essentials to help set your friend or family member up for some serious beauty sleep. The holiday-themed package includes a full-size Midnight Recovery Concentrate, formulated with soothing ingredients like lavender and evening primrose oils, and a full-size Midnight Recovery Omega-Rich Cloud Cream, infused with omega-3 oil, omega-6 oil and fatty acids. Both products will leave your skin feeling hydrated and restored by the time your alarm goes off in the morning — and while you’re at it, treat yourself and press snooze.
A Limited-Edition Lifting Skincare Set
Know someone who could use a pick-me-up this holiday season? This Lancôme discovery set comes with travel sizes of the Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Day Cream, the Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Eye Cream and the Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum, a fast-acting serum that will reveal more radiant skin in just seven days.
A Multitasking Skincare Set
Stressors from everyday life can take a toll on our complexion — from our face all the way down to our neck. Treat your friend or family member to a little TLC with this luxe skincare set. It comes with the brand’s bestselling Triple Lipid Restore cream and a daily retinol cream that’s specifically designed to address crepiness and wrinkles on the delicate neck area.
A Totally Toned Toner Gift Set
Finding balance can be difficult — especially when it comes to your skin’s pH level. This set comes with three gentle, alcohol-free toners (read: non-drying) that will help cleanse, soothe and stabilize your skin’s pH with just a few swipes. Each toner serves a slightly different purpose, from clearing the complexion to calming it down — making it the perfect gift set for anyone with stressed-out skin.
An Eco-Conscious Cleansing Set
If your friend or family member is always on the go, this cleansing kit is the ultimate self-care skincare gift. The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water has a cult following for a reason: It gently and quickly removes makeup without stripping the skin. That means no more nights of sleeping in a full face of makeup (which can wreak havoc on the skin later on). Plus, the Eco Pads are washable and reusable, cutting down on overall waste.
A Darling Dewy Skincare Set
Buying on a budget? You can still give the gift of self-care skincare (and a dewy glow!) with this adorable $20 gift set. It comes with two bestselling products that will help hydrate and plump dry, dehydrated skin with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid and vegan collagen.
A Day-to-Night Skincare Set
If your loved one is new to the beauty world, this set will teach them how to create a self-care skincare routine. It comes with the brand’s famous Confidence In A Cream, a rejuvenating anti-aging cream that addresses 10 different signs of aging, and a nourishing night cream. The best part? The moisturizers work for all skin types, so it’s a great gift for anyone on your list.
A Sweet Dreams Skincare Set
Is your loved one too busy to incorporate a brand-new lineup of skincare products into their routine? The Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask is specifically formulated to work overnight, delivering hydration deep into the skin cells. When they wake up, they can wash the mask off and apply the brand’s gel cream moisturizer (using the cute scrunchie to tie their hair back, of course) to reveal smooth, glowing skin.
A Plant-Powered Skincare Set
These products are based in Ayurvedic medicine, which focuses on balancing the body and the mind through natural, plant-based healing. This set comes with the brand’s gentle cleanser, an anti-aging serum, an eye cream and a night cream.
A Barrier-Boosting Set
Harsh winter weather can disrupt and damage the skin barrier, but this kit can help keep winter skin woes at bay. It comes with the brand’s ever-popular Triple Lipid Peptide Cream, Hand Repair Cream and an eco-friendly refill of the Triple Lipid Peptide Cream. Not only will you give your friend or family member the gift of hydration, you’ll also save them a trip back to the store when they use up all of this skin-loving cream.
A Calming Face Mist Set
Is there anything more therapeutic than taking a minute to apply a soothing face mist? The Avéne Thermal Spring Water is designed to help soothe, soften and calm sensitive skin, according to the brand. (And don’t face mists just make you feel more relaxed in general? We say yes.)
A Radiance-Boosting Skincare Set
Treat your loved one to some little luxuries this holiday season. This powerful duo comes with a travel-size Resurfacing Saffron Mask and award-winning Brightening Saffron Serum. The two products work together to revive dull and dehydrated skin for a lit-from-within glow that will shine as bright as the holiday lights this season.
