Festive Picks: Skincare Gift Sets

I've decided I won't be doing the Christmas gift guide thing this year; let's be honest, I don't know anyone on your list as well as you do and anyone can Google gift sets or browse through department store offers for inspiration. Instead, I'll be sharing my top picks this year; a few gifts sets I'd be more than thrilled to unwrap come Christmas morning. With Debenhams currently offering 10% off beauty, that seems a good a place as any to start if you did fancy picking any of these sets up for yourself or someone special!
Festive Picks: Skincare Giftsets
Origins Super Star Minis, £35 (currently £31.50 at Debenhams) | As a huge fan of Origins products, this set of seven mini-sized products would be an absolute dream to receive; I've tried some of the products included but others are new to me, and as I don't have any Origins skincare at the moment (sob!) I'd be super pleased to unwrap this little set, including their much-loved Clear Improvement charcoal face mask and High Potency Night-A-Mins cream amongst others.
L'Occitane Hand Cream Trio, £22 (currently £19.80 at Debenhams) | Containing their ever-popular Shea Butter hand cream along with a tube each of Cherry Blossom and Lavender, this is a beautiful set for anyone who's a lover of a good hand cream; I personally love L'Occitane's hand creams as they're super-hydrating and work really well, without feeling greasy or sticky on the skin. As an added bonus, this trio is presented in a beautiful box making it the ideal gift purchase.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Gift Set, £42 (currently £37.80 at Debenhams) | Confession time; I've never tried Elizabeth Arden's cult favourite Eight Hour Cream. This set, consisting of the original cream in full-size alongside an SPF version, a hand cream, a body cream and a full-sized lip balm, looks like the perfect introduction to the range at an affordable price.
Clarins Skincare Heroes Gift Set, £25 (currently £22.50 at Debenhams) | Clarins is another brand I have limited experience with, and this set of minis consists of a few products I'd be keen to try. The Beauty Flash Balm is a bit of a classic, whilst I love the sound of the Exfoliating Body Scrub and Moisture-Rich Body Lotion.
Kiehl's Skincare Heroes Gift Set, £36 (currently £32.40 at Debenhams) | I'm aware I'm running the risk of sounding a little repetitive here, but Kiehl's is yet another brand I've never tried and always heard good things about; in particular, I'd love to try their Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which is included in this set alongside 30ml bottles of Ultra Facial Cleanser and Moisturiser. The best part is, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate alone is £36, so you're essentially getting two products for free here!
Are there any skincare gift sets you've got your eye on this year? Are you prone to a little treat or two for yourself amongst your Christmas shopping, whilst all these amazing value sets are available? Just me!?

  3. I haven't done my usual Christmas gift guide. Instead I've worked along side a few brands and done a mini 'Christmas with Kate' series. I may also create an ultimate 'favourites' gift guide post and that'll be it from me. I were going to go all out and do a children's one but it's just taking me to long. I've been clogged up with a list of posts and have now got most wrote out. Phew! Love the Elizabeth Arden set x
