Everyone has that beauty lover on their list. You know the one. They’re always wanting to try the latest cosmetics and skincare products, being first in the know on what’s new or what a tried-and-true classic is doing to up its game .
This year, we’ve rounded up a few easy-to-give gift sets, which feature many of these companies’ star products, all in one pretty package.
The bonus? The sets are usually offered at a price that’s lower than buying the items separately, and it gives the receiver a chance to test-drive something new, as well. Oh, and don’t be surprised if there are one or two things here you may want to put on your own list.
