Every year, especially at the start of a new season, I like to do a little beauty and skincare restock. When they come in sets that just so happen to make great gifts? Even better.
You can get a few of your favorite mascaras or preferred skincare in a little bundle that comes out less expensive than if you were to stock up on them separately. Thank you, QVC! So once you see those holiday gift sets rolling out, grab ‘em while you can.

This spa collection set by Elemis comes with a body wash, lotion and a candle. Yes, a candle. The scent will basically have your room smelling like a spa with the eucalyptus and lavender. (I was thrilled about this little edition). Perfect for a self-care night.
The TME team has had me interested in trying out the Elemis cleansing balms forever now. (I’ll let you get to the makeup remover towels below to be honest about what I’m currently using). These balms are meant to melt away your makeup including stubborn eye makeup while simultaneously hydrating your skin. There’s the original one, a rose scent and an unscented version.
I will be honest…the scent of the toner (apricot) has me super interested. (In addition to all the other benefits too, of course). One thing that really stuck out to me is that this toner doesn’t use harsh alcohols that some other toners tend to have. My sensitive skin cannot handle being stripped away like that. Comes with a supersize of the beloved cleansing balm, too.
I’ve been meaning to switch over to more cream products for awhile now. I tend to have pretty dry skin, so I don’t always love the way most powder blushes sit. I think the cream version will blend into my skin a lot better. (And that peachy color is so good).
I’ve been a makeup wipe girl for awhile now (yes, I know guys…I know), but I think it’s officially time I switch over to some makeup remover towels that are not only more sustainable, but better for my skin. There’s a cute plaid holiday set available, too.
I mean, yeah I wanna smell like fresh cream and vanilla during the holidays (or maybe I want to all year). I’m a sucker for a holiday scent. The best part? One of them is a shower gel, shampoo and bubble bath all in one. The other — matching lotion. The beebs would love it too. If the fresh cream scent isn’t for you, check out the other scents.
I’ve heard great things about this IT Cosmetics CC cream foundation. The idea of “your skin but better” has me sooo intrigued. I don’t love the look of a completely full-coverage foundation, but still want enough to cover my redness so I’m thinking this might be a good in-between option. And it comes with SPF 50+. I’m sold. Plus this set comes with a powder that looks super promising (I’m always in the market for a better one), and that brush looks awesome. I appreciate that is has a small brush on one side to get in-between creases.
I’ve had these Tarte balms sitting in my cart for a little bit now. I’m so close to treating myself with them. I’ve seen a ton of photos of people wearing it, and it looks glossy but in a more “lip oil” kind of way. Almost like pretty colorful glass. The description says “applies like silk.” Oooo.
This Tarte eyeshadow palette has the perfect colors for every day, but you can totally smoke it out for nighttime too. There’s some shimmer and some matte shades (which is a must for my palettes) that I think will look great on all skin tones. As for that eyeliner, it’s made with Amazonian clay and vitamin E, making it creamy but pigmented. Bonus points for it being waterproof. My eyes could never stand a chance otherwise.
Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is the only mascara I’ve found that works for my lashes. Every year I like to stock up on them, or hold out hope that Santa puts one in my stocking. Here’s hoping!
Another set with Elemis’ cleansing balm, but this one comes with the Pro-Collagen Glow Boost Exfoliator. This exfoliator in particular has little exfoliating beads combined with oils, which sounds like it’ll be a lot less harsh than some other exfoliators. (I don’t love when it feels like my skin is peeling off).
I was really into beauty products in my tweens and teens. Buxom was one of my first “luxury” lip glosses, and I’ve been in love ever since. The tingling you get from the plumping ingredients is pretty subtle, so don’t let that deter you from this one. It has more of a “sticky” consistency which means it stays on longer than most other glosses I’ve tried. (Not sticky in a way that feels uncomfortable on the lips, though).
They had me at “Calm Yourself.” Noted, Elemis. But really, how cool that this set comes with a calming spray for your space or pillow? I want all the calmness always especially when I’m indulging in some self-care, spa time. I read some reviews on that Overnight Matrix cream (and some notes by beauty queen Scotti), and everyone’s saying how they see instant results.
You can usually find my friends and I passing around the classic Too Faced Lip Injection glosses after brunch for a nice reapplication. We don’t gatekeep around here. The tingly, plumping affect feels nice (maybe a bit more intense than the Buxom, but not too intense). I find it makes my lips a little more red, and plumper than usual. I’m interested to try out the other three in this set. (Might even have to grab some as little gifts for my girlfriends).
I knew I had to include this set with the Pro-Collagen Marine cream. Everyone raves about that product for its moisturizing, anti-wrinkle properties. Scotti mentioned how it’s giving people the confidence to go makeup-free (including herself). And then it comes with some other small samples of product faves in the cutest packaging (perfect for holiday gifting).
Are you guys as ready for the holidays as me??
