As you know, I am extremely passionate about skincare, and while I firmly believe that good skin comes from consistency and discipline, some great products certainly help. One fabulous aspect about this time of year is that so many of my favorite brands put together wonderful gift sets that not only take the guesswork out of holiday shopping, but also save a great deal of money for those who love to treat their skin! A great benefit from caring for great skin is the surge of confidence that comes from being able to go makeup-free and still look amazing, which is truly priceless. Here are a few of my favorite brands that provide fantastic sets for the skincare-loved in your life (and yes, treating yourself is perfectly acceptable and encouraged here)!
For the Korean skincare lover
K-Beauty is a huge trend, and for good reason. In Korea, cosmetic and medical aesthetic procedures are extremely common. In order to compete with these high standards, Korean Skincare, which is known for its multi-step processes and preventative measures versus trying to repair skin, is absolutely cutting edge. My personal favorite brand is InnisFree, and they have a wonderful variety of gift sets that are perfect for just about anyone on your list. They range from hand cream to lip balm, and everything in-between, with savings of up to 50%. They’re perfect for anyone who wants an introduction to Korean skincare, or even to keep on hand for surprise occasions that require a hostess gift.

Fond of Natural Luxury
For anyone whose flavor is more in line with the marriage of natural products that are still luxury brands, the Ranavat x Payal Singhal gift set is an absolute dream. It contains one Mighty Majesty Hair Serum, on Jasmine Tonique Facial Mist, and one Radiant Rani Brightening serum, plus a Payal Singhal Scarf + Scrunchie, boxed together in a beautiful, minimalist and luxurious package, modernizing traditional Indian silhouettes and encouraging users to treat themselves like royalty.

If you believe that your skin is a reflection of your overall health, the holistic approach that Naturopatica takes is perfect for you! Not only do they value beauty from the inside out with their selection of skincare, bath and body care, and teas and herbal remedies, but they are leaping bunny certified and use recycled materials whenever possible for their packing and shipping, and are an overall wonderful company to support. Their sets run the gamut from travel items for skincare on-the-go, to muscle recovery, and more. Check them out here:

My favorite of these sets is the Hello Glow Gift set, which features a peel, a healthy skin tincture, and two sachets of skin tea, exemplifying great skin from the inside and out, using natural ingredients, as shown here:

Artisanal, Handcrafted Farm to Fingers
Those seeking the personal touch of handcrafted soaps and skincare from a quaint farm will love the offerings of Beekman 1802, one of the top lifestyle brands currently thriving. They’ve curated a group of 300 local (to New York) artisans to craft fine products, particularly those featuring products grown on their farm’s herb and vegetable garden, beehive, and herd of goats. You can even take a look at their goat cam and watch their milkers in action, or go directly to their gift set selection here:
