From multi-masking to microcurrent, it’s safe to say we’re all skincare obsessed these days. The silver lining of lockdown (hey, we all have to maintain a level of optimism!) was spent either refining or discovering our routine. I’ve had several conversations with people who cared very little about skincare pre-pandemic but leaned in hard during quarantine to the point of a full-blown obsession. If you’re reading this nodding, you’re not alone. Turns out, our recent bout of self-isolation induced a skincare boom and we’re all finding comfort at the bottom of a serum bottle or jar of rich cream (preferably with hyaluronic acid!). That means we’ve probably got a lot of friends and relatives who are just as jazzed about skin too. So, we compiled some of the best skincare gifts to get your holiday gifting sorted early (get ahead of the supply chain strain!)
From your face to your body (and the best at-home beauty tools), we have something for everyone on your list so scroll down and start adding the best skincare gifts to cart. We guarantee you’ll want to throw some into your own stocking too—promise we won’t tell! Besides, you deserve it.

I have been using Cosmedix skincare for over 10 years and can vouch for its effectiveness.

We’re talking eye cream that doubles as highlighter. Just trust us on this one.
Inspired by her Korean upbringing—where she observed her grandmother and mother apply different parts of the eggs onto their skin—Erica Choi founded clean and vegan skincare line, Superegg.
