The Best Holiday Beauty Sets from Sephora

the best beauty gift sets

The holidays are hereeeeee and I could not be more excited! I’m ready to deck the halls, apart burning all of the cozy handles, watch holiday movies every chance I get (okay, I already started to do this….), and tackle my holiday shopping!

This holiday season is lookin’ a lot different, and if we’re being honest, money is tight and I’m sure budget is top of mind for you, too. So, this year, we aren’t doing gift guides (and honestly, thank god – they’re so much work!) but don’t worry, I’ll still be sharing gift ideas. Think more curated options that you’ll actually want to shop, and that are actually worth the money. 

Did I mention I’m so excited to not make gift guides!?

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all of the gift sets. There are so many awesome options, they make gifting easy, and it’s the best time to try out new-to-you products! 

I recently picked up two OLEHENRIKSEN sets: the brightening essentials set ($40) and the mini mega wonders set ($22). I have heard so many amazing things about their banana products, especially the eye cream, and when I saw that there was a gift set that not only included the eye cream, but also their toner, I had to have it! I’ve been using both of these sets for a little over two weeks now and am honestly really impressed. I’ll definitely be purchasing some of their full-sized products!

Here are some other sets I’m loving this holiday season.


Brightening Essentials Set

This 3-piece set is my new favorite and includes the amazing banana eye cream! All of the products are rich with Vitamin C, banana powder, and collagen to help the skin become more radiant and target visible signs of aging.

    I love shopping for gift sets and receiving them. It is a great way to get a little bit of everything and they’re usually the essentials too! These are great options Rachel!

    So many great options Rachel. I love the idea of gift sets because it automatically makes it fun to receive multiple things and they are usually coordinated by theme or product line.

    I’ve owned that Vitamin C Serum by Ole Henriksen and it’s amazing. So sorry it’s empty.
