The best Christmas skincare gift sets
Whether you find Christmas shopping a joy or a chore, we’ve got you covered with our Christmas skincare gift set round-up.
It’s (almost) The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. Christmas shopping is a key part of the annual festive season prep. Love it or hate it, for most of us there’s no avoiding it! If you’re not a fan of trekking round the shops – or simply don’t have a clue what to buy for friends and family – help is at hand. Skincare gift sets are always a brilliant option.
Value for money
There are lots of reasons why we recommend skincare gift sets for Christmas. First of all, they offer plenty of bang for your buck. Most skincare gift sets have a built-in value saving (and sometimes it’s a big one!). This means you get more for less with one fast, easy, purchase – what’s not to like?
Skincare gift sets don’t just offer excellent value for money. They’re a great way to help the recipient experiment with new products. Putting together several different items from scratch can sometimes be a bit hit-and-miss, even if you’re familiar with someone’s favourite brand. Gift sets take away all the guesswork. Professionally curated for maximum synergies, they already contain products that work well together, so they save you precious shopping time, as well as money. Some kits feature trial sizes or smaller, portable formats that are perfect for travel, sleepovers, or the gym. Often, there are little extra treats included, which you can’t always buy anywhere else. Lastly, Christmas gift sets incorporate gorgeous packaging, and they’re usually limited editions too – all of which really does add to the ‘something special’ vibe.
The Medik8 Festive Collection
Where Christmas skincare gift sets are concerned, Medik8’s 2021 Festive Collection really does offer something to suit everyone. Featuring a combination of full-size best-sellers, travel-friendly Try Me sizes (and even some practical sustainable treats) there’s a set for every age group, skin concern – and every Christmas shopping budget! As you’d expect from a brand that puts sustainability at the heart of everything it does, the collection is 100% vegan, and all the packaging is fully recyclable. Each set is also fabulous value, retailing at far less than the individual products would cost to buy separately.
Medik8 Nurture Set
If you’re after a gift set that offers long-lasting TLC for delicate lips and eyes, look no further than Medik8’s Nurture kit. Featuring a 15ml Mutiny lip balm and an 15ml Illuminating Eye Balm, this set is the perfect stocking filler for younger friends and family. Winter weather can be unkind to extremities, but Mutiny instantly soothes sore lips and helps to prevent moisture loss. Party animals are sure to adore the Illuminating Eye Balm, which can be used either under or on top of makeup to target signs of fatigue, and revive and revitalise eyes.
Medik8 Celebrated Gift Set
If you’re in need of a present for someone keen to start exploring anti-ageing skincare, Medik8’s Celebrated gift set is ideal. It contains two full-size, global best-sellers that work together in perfect harmony: a 200ml Press & Glow and a 30ml Crystal Retinal 3. Press & Glow is a daily exfoliating PHA toner, designed to visibly brighten skin and boost glow, without irritation. Crystal Retinal 3 is an ideal entry point for those new to Vitamin A formulations. This Christmas skincare gift set also includes a handy tube squeezer to minimise waste, and 16 eco-friendly reusable cotton pads.
Medik8 Reflection Gift Set
Dull skin is a common concern, especially during the winter months, when we spend so much time indoors. Medik8’s Reflection gift set is perfect for anyone keen to boost their natural glow during the party season, or for that traditional New Year revamp. This set contains a Try Me 40ml Surface Radiance Cleanse, a full-size 30ml Sleep Glycolic and a full-size 30ml Clarity Peptides. This powerful trio works fast to smooth, decongest and perfect skin, without irritation, so users can put their best face forward throughout the holiday festivities.
Medik8 Escape Gift Set
It’s well known that sometimes a little of what you fancy does you good. Step forward Medik8’s Escape gift set, which features four of the brand’s most popular skincare products, all in special portable Try Me sizes. Contents include a 30ml Eyes & Lips Micellar Cleanse, a 40ml Micellar Mouse, an 8ml Hydr8 B5 Intense face serum and a 12.5ml Night Ritual Vitamin A. These essential cleansers and cult classics are ideal for holidays, gym bags and impromptu getaways.
r-Retinoate Luxe Collection 2.0 Gift Set
If you’re shopping for someone who enjoys the finer things in life, we recommend Medik8’s r-Retinoate Luxe Collection 2.0. Containing a full-size 15ml r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum, a full-size 50ml r-Retinoate Day & Night and a full-size 50ml r-Retinoate Intense – all at a serious saving – this set is ideal for anyone looking to achieve maximum anti-ageing results with a simple but highly effective day and night routine.
