Free time and endless parties are some of the highlights of the holiday season, but we're really here for the end-of-year festival of beauty that begins in November – and comes in the shape of limited-edition sets, covetable gifts-with-purchase, perfectly curated packs, and mini versions of everything that somehow make you want them more.
Whether it's a gift for someone else (lucky!) or for yourself (luckier!) holiday sets are the perfect excuse to try that brand you've always had your eye on, or buy that no-brainer, beautifully wrapped gift. And the good news is, the season of limited-edition beauty sets is upon us!
The gateway to great skin, the Drunk Elephant Face Value Skin Kit The A.M Routine has all of the brand’s greatest hits – including Lala Retro moisturiser and B-Hydra hydration serum – so if you’ve ever wanted to be a part of the DE fan club, now is your chance. Special shout out to the inclusion of C-Firma Fresh Day Serum – one of the best vita min C serums on the market. Just try not to glow after this.
If you’re not already aboard the ILIA train, it’s time to see what ‘clean beauty’ done right looks like. The perfect gift for your sister/bestie/someone you really like, ILIA’s The After Hours Set has three essentials (mascara, eye tint and our fave – the Multistick for cheeks, lips and eyes) that can be worn sheer for day or built up for a more dramatic night-time look.
There are candles, and then there are diptyque candles. Renowned for being masters of fragrance, they never put a (beautifully scented) foot wrong. This diptyque Mini Candle Set has five of the brand’s bestsellers, including the most popular scent, Baies, so you can divide them up as individual gifts (because, who doesn’t love a candle?) or keep them as a sampler set to discover your new favourite.
If you haven’t discovered this Brazilian brand yet, your body is missing out. Featuring every body care product you need (including its famed Bum Bum Cream), this Sol de Janeiro set of four body must-haves is the solution for every hard-to-buy-for person in your life. No one will be disappointed by the gift of soft skin with the scent of paradise.
Do yourself a favour and buy this as a gift to yourself to open in January after your hair has been beaten by the sun/swim/chlorine/aircon combination of summer. This Briogeo Kit includes all the hair heroes to get your strands back to health (the mask is scientifically proven to decrease hair breakage – really!).
A not-so-subtle gift for anyone in your life who still thinks sunscreen is optional (*cough* Dad *cough*), the Mecca Cosmetica Summer Essentials set not only has two of MECCA’s cult-favourite sunscreens, but also the After Sun Mist.*
*Use wisely. Always check the label for directions. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear protective clothing, eyewear and a hat. Reapply as directed.
