Skincare and Skincare Holiday Gift Set Recommendations

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Tis the season for skincare gift sets and I have some great recommendations to check out during tomorrow’s Sephora 20% Holiday Event! I know a few of you requested some skincare recs so I thought I’d tell you about some sets I’m loving as well as individual skincare products I think are worth a haul!

Skincare can be expensive so, it’s nice to haul some goodies during the 20% off or stock up on staples!

Here’s some skincare and skincare holiday gift set recommendations!

J.One Jelly Pack ($34 after discount)
This one isn’t for everyone because it is a little sticky at first application but I personally love it. This is a great skin firming primer that hydrates and primes for makeup while giving your complexion a lifted look!

J.One Jelly Cream ($34 after discount)
Speaking of J. One their Jelly Cream is fantastic as well! I use it as a night cream! It’s very rich and hydrating that brightens and plumps skin overnight!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Cream ($48 after discount)
I sound like a broken record with this recommendation but truly this is one of my favorite eye creams! It’s so rich and creamy and intensely hydrating! Love this stuff!


Charlotte Tilbury Multi-Miracle Glow Cleansing Balm ($48 after discount)
Another broken record here but I just hauled another jar of this during the sale because I adore it so much! It works as a mask, leave on sleeping mask, or a cleansing balm however, I use it at night as the final step in my skincare routine as a sleeping pack! It does such a great job restoring moisture to my skin and I swear it makes my skin look younger and happier!

Herbivore Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask

Herbivore Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask ($38 after discount)
Herbivore has some gems but also some misses! This glow mask is definitely a hit with me! It exfoliates and restores a nice glow to my skin after a single use!

Amore Pacific 12 Days of Essential Beauty ($52 after discount)
Amore Pacific feels like it never gets enough love! It’s like a hit that no one really knows about or does and doesn’t use! This 12 piece set includes deluxe sizes of their most popular products and is a great introduction to the brand’s skincare!

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream ($38 after discount) and Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream Liquid ($31 after discount)
Most of you must be beyond tired about my raves about Dr Jart’s Ceramidin products! But now is a good time to stock up! I used the cream and liquid all through the Winter season! Love how hydrating and smooth both keep my skin!

Farmacy Cream of the Crop ($34 after discount)
You’ve heard RAVE plenty about Farmacy’s brilliant cleansing balm and this set includes a full0size as well as a 0.32 oz Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy and Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer (both of which I love as well!).

Laneige Kiss and Make Up Set ($23)
A set for those of us with dry, cracked lips! This one includes the original full-size Laneige Berry Sleeping Mask along with minis of the limited edition vanilla, apple lime, and grapefruit flavors!

Volition Beauty The Passport Collection ($51 after discount)
I can’t recommend this one enough! It has a full-size Helix AM/PM Eye Gel which I’ve reviewed and Muse Approved! It’s a great eye gel that wears well under concealers and seems to completely eliminate my bags and lines (temporarily anyway). It also contains my favorite facial scrub from the brand in a 1.52 oz size (Turmeric Brightening Polish) and one I haven’t yet tried, the Oceanene Youth Boost Gel (1 oz). A great skincare set well worthy of a haul!

First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit

First Aid Beauty Holiday Sets 20% Off
I’m not really a huge fan of First Aid Beauty! It’s very hit or miss for me but a lot of people do love it and I think it is worth exploring their sets if you are a fan as some of the deals are amazing especially at 20% off with sets including two or more full-size items!

Peter Thomas Roth Mask Frenzy ($60 after discount)
I recommended this late last week and picked it for myself (I have for the past two years)! I’m probably not doing my skin any favors with it but I do love Peter Thomas Roth’s masks! This one contains six of them in 1.7 oz sizes that act to sooth, soften, hydrate, and exfoliate skin! I tend to use them as a pre-mask and after I use a sheet mask and always find my skin glows all the more after double-masking 🙂

Kopari Beauty Besties ($32 after discount)
This is another nice set that includes the Coconut Deo I was raving in a full size as well as generous size extras of Kopari’s Coconut Melt, Coconut Face Cream, and another of my favorites, their Coconut Lip Glossy!

Glow Recipe Limited Edition Watermelon Jelly Tote Set ($32 after discount)
I was raving this earlier this week! It contains a deluxe size of Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer and Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask as well as a single Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask!

Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland ($51 after discount)
And for my friends who want it all (who doesn’t?) This includes 15 different skincare products in generous sizes from It Cosmetics, Clinique, Korres, Sunday Riley, and many more!

Have you hauled any good skincare during the sale? Planning on doing so tomorrow?

Do share your picks!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    During last weeks sale I got the Blithe gold apricot pressed serum and so far based on the scent alone I’m sold. Lol. I’ll be getting the Farmacy cream of the crop this weekend cuz I’m almost out of cleansing balm and now you’ve sold me on the Volition set. Too much good stuff!

  • Dot

    The Drunk Elephant and Sunday Riley kits look pretty good! I need to re-up some items from those brands so might as well pick up a kit.

    I totally agree with you about FAB. Their products don’t seem to really work for me—I thought the repair cream would help my dry skin but it seems to do nothing… and I almost feel drier? It’s strange!

    • Isabella Muse

      OMG me either! Everyone says how amazing their stuff is but it just did nothing for me. I didn’t feel drier thankfully but I didn’t feel it was as incredible as everyone raves!
