12 Of The Best Holiday Beauty Gifts and Sets Of 2023

I always seem to start my holiday gift guides with beauty. Why? Because it’s my favorite category! Yet, I admit I have a hard time cutting the list down to a manageable amount. Who doesn’t love beauty presents? Too many women won’t spend money on beauty products for themselves, so this is where you come in. Spoil her with something she might not buy for herself. And while you’re at it, get one for yourself too. Here is our Holiday Guide of the best beauty gifts of 2023.

12 Of The Best Holiday Beauty Gifts and Sets

1. Eminence Organic Skin Care Rosehip Oil and Gua Sha Gift Set, $118

This Rosehip Oil & Gua Sha Gift Set is pure heaven and was designed to deliver a relaxing home facial massage that leaves skin feeling soft, plump and invigorated. Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil provides intense hydration and protection while fighting the signs of aging with this silky-smooth treatment. It helps with dark spots and doesn’t clog pores. Plus, the fragrance is incredible. Gua Sha originated in ancient China and uses a smooth stone to massage the skin. The included gua sha tool works synergistically with the  body’s natural lymphatic flow to visibly firm and strengthen a tired-looking complexion while soothing the mind, body and spirit.

2. Tocca Wonders Mini Eau de Parfum Set (Limited Edition), $69 Value, $52

Now she can find her new signature scent! This limited-edition gift set features six of Tocca’s most flora-forward eau de parfums. It includes .17 oz. of the following; Florence, Cleopatra, Stella, Giulietta, Colette and Lucia. I have to admit, I kinda love them all. They are perfect for travel and/or to keep in a makeup bag for on-the-go fragrance.

3. Leonor Greyl Holiday Gift Set, $174.71

Nothing beats the gift of beautiful hair. I first discovered plant-based Leonor Greyl hair products on a trip to France over 20 years ago. And every time I use it, the fragrance (gardenia and lemon) transports me back to to the South of France. This holiday gift set includes the brand’s best-selling products. L’Huile de Leonor Greyl Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil, Shampooing Crème Moelle de Bambou Hydrating Shampoo, Masque a l’Orchidee Moisturizing Hair Mask, Serum de Soie Sublimateur Conditioning Serum and two gold & pearl hair pins to provide a luxurious finishing touch to any hair style. And it’s all housed in a beautiful gift box.

4. Rationale #3 The Tinted Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, $136.85

Yes, it’s expensive, but if Dr. Ellen Gendler says she can’t live without it, I believe her. After all, she is the sunscreen expert! This hydrating daily superfluid serum will leave a radiant, translucent finish while offering advanced solar and environmental protection with a proprietary Zinc Fusion technology. The 24% zinc oxide solution is fortified with Skin Identical Melanin and photo-protective metallic oxides. These bioactive pigments are responsible for creating the formulation’s luminescent, non-whitening tint.

5. Doll 10 Beauty WHERE THERE IS JOY, THERE IS BEAUTY Blissfully Blended 5 Piece Brush Collection, $39.95

This luxe set of six cruelty-free face and eye brushes are stunning and will keep her feeling glamorous well past the holidays.

6. StimuNail Grow Strong Nails, $68

Years and years of gel polish and acrylics will destroy nails and leave them fragile and weak. But never fear, there is a way to get strong, long nails with a device that even works on artificial nails. StimuNail was created by a cosmetic biochemist to offer an ingredient-free solution to strengthen nails by targeting the cuticle and nail matrix, where keratin-rich nail cells develop and grow. StimuNail uses red LED light at a wavelength of 635 nm directed on the cuticle area where new nail cells are made, boosting energy production and cellular regeneration. Simply Insert your hand into the device and it automatically turns on for three minutes. Switch hands, then you’re done. Repeat this 4 times per week for 12 weeks to see maximum results.

7. Laura Geller Party in a Palette Guest of Honor 4 Full Face Palettes, $30

I am OBSESSED with these full face palettes, and so is Oprah! It’s one of her favorite things for Holiday 2023. But I knew this last year when I got my first (now trashed) set. Last year I recommended breaking them up and giving them as gifts, since 4 come in the set, but truth be told…I just couldn’t do it. I love them all equally. This stunning collection includes a mix of flattering, versatile hues suitable for any occasion. Each palette includes a mirror, six eyeshadows, and an assortment of blushes, bronzers and highlighters all perfectly curated for all occassions, plus easy-to-follow directions. Even makeup novices will feel like a pro.

8. Elemis The Skin Brilliance Trio, $90

This dynamic resurfacing trio of full-sized products is powered by patented Tri-Enzyme Technology to leave skin feeling smooth and looking luminous. Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash gently refines the skin while deeply cleansing to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. Formulated with chemical exfoliants, Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads help reduce the appearance of dark spots, pores and uneven skin texture. The Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask encourages natural cell renewal for radiant skin.

9. Salty Face Liquid Bronzer, $36

This new Liquid Bronzer is the bomb.com.  It’s a concentrated tint to add to any daily skincare or makeup routine for an instant glow. Simply add Liquid Bronzer to moisturizer, foundation or SPF for an all over look, or use it to bronze or contour areas like cheeks, nose, forehead and eyelids. This buildable bronzer is formulated with a blend of nourishing skincare ingredients including hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and botanical extracts. It offers deep hydration while visibly brightening the skin and reducing the appearance of dark spots. It’s vegan, sulfate-free, curelty-free and safe for all skin types.

10. Iconic London Glowing Out Out Gift Set, $156 Value, $75

Who wouldn’t love a set of makeup essentials to get glam, glowing and ready to go out? This kit contains a 1 oz. Mini Prep-Set-Glow Original Spray to prep, hydrate and illuminate skin. The Triple Threat Mascara is a black volumizing, lengthening and lifting mascara for a dramatic look. Mini Illuminator Original is a gorgeous, glowing illuminator with intense, shimmering pigments. Sheer Blush in Rose Riot is a liquid blush for a soft-focus, sheer, watercolor finish. Lip Plumping Glow in Nearly Nude is a gloss that moisturizes and plumps lips. Thriving & Shining Eyeshadow Palette is a set of four shimmering eyeshadows for a dramatic eye look. This makeup set is easy-to-use, paraben-free and made in Greece.

11. Julep Eyeshadow 101 Crème-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick 6-Piece Set, $70

After trying this cream-to-powder eyeshadow set I now know why it’s the #1 eyeshadow stick on Amazon with over 40k views! This warm and luminous eyeshadow set seamlessly delivers crease-proof color, with no-brush application required (but recommended for blending)! It’s an effortless addition to any make-up routine when on-the-go this holiday season! I’m in love with the Daylight set, but am eager to try others.

12. Theradem Anti-Aging System, $290

If you have not yet tried Theradem products I suggest getting this set for yourself too. This daily skin care regimen exfoliates, moisturizes and traps harmful free radicals. Three patented peptides act in concert to minimize moderate wrinkles and tighten lax neck skin. Pharmaceutical grade ingredients in Eternox Peptide Crème provide the anti-aging support skin needs to stay smooth and healthy by supporting gene expression, transcription factors and cell signaling molecules. Use both morning and evening for optimal results.
