When it comes to maximising your gifting game and tracking down the best gifts for her, you can’t go far wrong with a skincare gift set. And luckily, as the industry’s leading skincare brands put their Christmas thinking hats on (yep, we said it), there are some seriously stellar skincare gift sets landing on the (physical and virtual) shelves of our favourite beauty stores.
Whether she already knows her niacinamide from her hyaluronic acid or you’re trying to get her to dabble in the wonderful world of skincare for the very first time, gifting her with a skincare gift set will earn you some serious friend points. Why? ‘Cos although a single moisturiser/cleanser/serum is a lovely present in its own right, a gift set will allow you to buy her an entire skincare routine at a discounted price. Why settle for one product when you can take her from makeup removal to eye cream and acne treatment in one fell swoop?
Granted, the success of anyone’s skincare routine depends on their skin type, skin colour and personal skin concerns – but fret not. If you can’t quite remember whether she’s a dry/combination/oily skin gal, we’ve whittled down the best one-size-fits all skincare gifts that are sure to suit a whole plethora of women.
One of the best Christmas beauty gifts of 2020 is Estee Lauder’s skincare gift set: a carefully curated edit of high-performance formulas which each offer intense hydration and instant glow. Containing the New Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex, DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Creme, DayWear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme and Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask, these wonder products will defend against signs of premature ageing and diminish their appearance. There’s also Glossier’s trio of super serums which each contain different good-for-skin ingredients so she can mix and match depending on what her skin is doing that day, and Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Skin Secrets which comes in at just £50. Her serum, clay mask, award-winning Magic Cream and primer barely need an introduction. All you need to know is that they’ll leave your bestie with glowing, super model-esque skin in no time.
