As an Amazon’s choice for skin care sets, the E.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrated Ever After Skin Care Mini Kit is next-level (and you don’t have to be traveling to reap its benefits, though it is a great travel-sized buy). It includes everything you need to reset and recharge: a cleanser, an eye cream, a multi-use balm, hydrating booster drops and a face cream.
2. TULA Skin Care Discovery Kit, $52
If minis are what you’re after, then the TULA Skin Care Discovery Kit is for you. Namely, the probiotic-infused products help to achieve balanced and glowing skin, while everything is nicely contained in its travel-sized pouch. Just above $50, it’s a rockin’ set. We even love the brand so much we just had to dedicate an entire round up to TULA’s best skincare products.
3. Biossance Overachievers Set, $58
We love Biossance (and so does Reese Witherspoon). To get aboard the celeb-loved beauty brand, pick up its five-piece Overachievers Set that comes with a night serum, rose oil, eye cream, gel moisturizer and squalane cream. It’s ideal if you’re looking to soothe the skin — products that can double as a makeup primer.
4. Mario Badescu Essentials Kit, $50
We can’t express how much we love Mario Badescu (if you’re ever in NYC, go grab a facial at its salon). Their Essentials Kit is the $50 bundle of our dreams, containing a cleanser (that just feels like your most luxe spa experience), its top-rated facial spray, the TikTok-famous Drying Lotion and two treatments to have you looking and feeling your best.
For sensitive skin types especially, First Aid Beauty’s FAB Faves to Go Kit is the less-than-$50 buy we need to turn you on to. Specifically, it comes with its cleanser, best-selling Ultra Repair Cream (you can also peep it in our products for dry skin roundup) and its Facial Radiance Pads to help tone and brighten your complexion.
6. Tatcha The Starter Ritual Set, $74
Japanese skincare brand Tatcha is revolutionary, and its Starter Ritual Set is only one iconic offering from the brand. Inside, you’ll find its cleansing oil, rice polish treatment, essence, eye cream and moisturizer to lock in the much-needed hydration your skin has been craving.
7. Paula’s Choice CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit, $57, original price: $71
If you struggle with acne, you know how difficult it can be to treat it. That’s why we recommend picking up the Paula’s Choice CLEAR Regular Strength Acne Kit. It comes with a cleanser, face exfoliator and a skin-clearing treatment that’s both fragrance- and paraben-free.
8. Proactiv 3-Step Acne Treatment, $40, original price: $60
Speaking of acne, you’ve likely heard of Proactiv: the as-seen-on-TV brand that’s an acclaimed problem-solver for most individuals with acne-prone skin. There’s no surprise the 3-Step Acne Treatment is an Amazon best-seller, either; more than 42,000 reviewers rave about its easy-to-follow regimen.
9. Olay Vitamin C Face Mask Kit, $28
For that brightening glow once a week or so, we love Olay’s Vitamin C Face Mask Kit. After using your favorite vitamin C serum, treat yourself to the brand’s vitamin-infused Resurfacing Mask and AHA Peel Activator to help give your skin the radiant boost it deserves.
Not only are we in love with Glow Recipe’s Instagram-worthy packaging, but their collection of fruit-scented goodies make a great cocktail for your skin. Pick up their best-sellers to try a little bit of everything from the brand, including the top-rated Watermelon Glow line.

Now, this is a nighttime skincare routine. Sunday Riley’s complete set has you covered for bedtime — especially with their best-selling Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment. The complete collection is best for dry, normal and combination skin and helps target anti-aging (thanks, retinol!)
2. Farmacy Healthy Skin Starter Kit, $42
Farmacy’s Healthy Skin Starter Kit is less than $50 and just feels clean on your skin. Their Deep Sweep is one of the best toners, too, and you’ll go absolutely nuts for its Honey Halo (think: beeswax meets ultimate moisture).
3. Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Jet Set, $30
Ah, Sol de Janeiro. How we love you. Its Bum Bum Jet Set (say that ten times fast) has the most luscious, tropical scent we’ve ever had the pleasure of using. Oh, and along with their mist and gel, that signature tub is probably one of the best body butters we’ve reviewed.
Laneige’s assortment of lip masks is not only a nightstand staple but a great gift as well — especially in this less-than-$35 set. You’ll adore its hydration, deeply rooted moisture and travel-friendly tubs. Keep one in your work tote and one at the office, too.
We recommend using a facial sunscreen year round (or, at the very least, a moisturizer with SPF). Luckily, Supergoop! has its SPF Bestsellers Starter Kit that’s under $50, making it totally worth your coin. Their products are also water and sweat-resistant.
6. Olehenriksen 3 Mega Wonders, $39, original price: $65
Looking to brighten and target dark spots? Olehenriksen has a specially curated their 3 Mega Wonders Kit for you that comes in a super gift-able package. With a toner, a serum and a brightening cream, it’s a versatile trio that works well on any skin type.
Pick up a box from none other than Sephora Collection itself. The retailer’s Clarifying Kit is vegan and includes a regimen that’s easy to follow (only three steps required). Say goodbye to complicated routines and hello to this skin-boosting pack.
There’s a reason why you see Clinique all over department stores (and the Internet): it has incredible moisturizing properties, is dermatologist-recommended and is apt for sensitive skin types. Add its Great Skin, Great Deal Set to your cart if you’re looking for some new products — including a facial soap.
Drunk Elephant wins the award for best packaging and best formulation. Revamp your morning routine with their complete set of hydrating and face-awakening formulas including a serum base, face serum, eye cream and Polypeptide cream. Though best for combination skin, its clean, firming formulation works well on our oily skin, too — a.k.a totally worth the splurge.
10. Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit, $36
Yes, skincare extends to men’s grooming. Whether you need to polish up or are looking for a snazzy gift for the guy in your life, the Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit contains luxurious products for that less-than-$50 price point.

The Kylie Skin 3 Step Mini Skin Care Set is that celeb-founded brand we adore, namely for its pink packaging (more importantly: its formulation). This trio includes the brand’s Foaming Face Wash, Vanilla Milk Toner and Face Moisturizer for an easy “one, two, three, go” process.
2. The Ordinary The Bright Set, $41
The Ordinary’s set not only looks luxurious, but it’s wonderful for those who are interested in upping the ante on their skin care regime. It comes with a squalane cleanser, caffeine solution, ethylated ascorbic acid and glycolic acid to have your skin prepped and primed.
Whether you have dry, oily or combination skin this set is a one size fits all.

All the ingredients are clean and vegan, and packaged in sustainable materials making it a plant-approved pick for your bathroom.
Too Faced not only has a bundle that’s perfect for your bestie, but it’s one of the best treat-yourself gifts to buy. You’ll love everything in its Hangover line (especially that dreamy Pillow Cream!)
To achieve that glass-skin look made popular on TikTok, Peach & Lily has you covered. Inside its box, you’ll find a gel cleanser, an essence, a refining serum and — drumroll please — a Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream — that puts the V in vegan skincare.
Philosophy’s peel kit is a premium beauty buy that’s one of the best value kits on this list. We wholeheartedly recommend it for skin that needs a reset as it uses microdermabrasion to resurface skin and replenish it with vitamin C. The results? Clear, smooth and brighter skin.
If you’re into all things skincare, you have definitely heard of CeraVe. Its Skin Barrier Restoring Kit is specially made with acne-prone skin in mind as it features a retinol serum, an AM moisturizing lotion and a PM moisturizing lotion to follow suit in the evening.
Brighten and correct dark spots in one with the Murad Brighten Trial Kit. This four-pack comes with the clean-formulated, travel-sized items that will absolutely *brighten* your day.
If you’re asking yourself, how do I get rid of wrinkles? Then Sunday Riley’s nighttime set is for you. For under $100 you get seven skin care products including their cleanser, essence, night oil, retinoid serum, lactic acid treatment, retinoid and niacinamide eye serum and moisturizer, which will work to hydrate, smooth and even your skin all while you catch some Z’s.
We love our face masks, and we love the Peter Thomas Roth Masking Minis 5-Piece Kit. If you want to try a quality sampling of the brand (or, are looking for a less-than-$20 gift), this Ulta Beauty grab is beyond compare.
