Holiday Beauty Bundles Are Here: These Early Arrivals Are Worth Your $$$
No holiday season is complete without beauty gift sets, and we’ve got the scoop on some of the earliest bundles already on shelves. Whether you’re getting a head start on your Christmas shopping list or want to treat yourself to something nice before the frenzy hits (you deserve it), these picks are perfect.
We’ve got something for everyone, too, including luxe hair goodies, pampering skincare, and makeup bundles that’ll keep you and your giftee looking and feeling as lit as the Christmas tree.
1. Benefit Sincerely Yours Beauty Advent Calendar, $65 (Value: $142)
Doing a little shopping for yourself? A beauty-themed advent calendar ought to do the trick, and Benefit’s got one of the best of the season. It comes with 12 travel-sized versions of the brand’s best-sellers, including the Bad Gal Bang! mascara, Hoola bronzer, Gimme Brow Pencil, and the Porefessional Pore Primer.
Each is hidden behind a little cardboard door. And as tempting as it might be to open everything at once, you’re only supposed to peep one per day so you can do the whole “12 days of Christmas” thing.
2. GrandeLash First Class Beauty, $69 (Value: $149)
Craving the kind of fluttery lashes that create a bit of wind every time you blink? We gotchu. GrandeLash doesn’t mess around when it comes to lash and brow growth serums, which is why they’re a go-to for anyone who wants a bit more oomph.
With a savings of $80 bucks, this three-in-one eye set is a no-brainer. It includes a full-size tube of the brand’s cult-favorite lash serum, as well as minis of its brow-enhancing serum and carbon black liquid eyeliner.
3. Peter Thomas Roth Masking Minis 5-Piece Kit, $19 (Value: $35)
The chilly months can be brutal on our skin thanks to indoor heating, blustery air, and basically zero humidity. This cute lil masking set from Peter Thomas Roth has you covered no matter the skin dilemma, though. Sensitive skin? Try the soothing mask. No glow? Exfoliate away. Parched dermis? Hello incoming hydration.
We love this one for a budget-friendly pre-holiday treat yourself moment. But at under $20 and (and a savings of nearly 50%) this beauty gift set also makes for a nice stocking stuffer or white elephant gift exchange gift. Hmm, maybe just nab a few?
You didn’t think we’d leave out your lips, did you? They need some TLC just like the rest of your skin. Plus, you’ll want to make sure you’ve set your pout up for success with all those holiday looks you’ll be serving all season.
Leave it to Laneige to gift us with a yummy five-piece gift set dedicated specifically to lips. The bundle comes with five of the brand’s coveted overnight mini lip masks: berry, gummy bear, mango, vanilla, and mint choco. (Pro Tip: Keep all these for yourself, or open the gift set and pop these cuties into stockings or a gift basket.)

5. Farmacy Holiday Party, $46 (Value: $72)
Speaking of holiday ~lewks~, what goes on must come off. Cue this holiday gift set from Farmacy, which includes not one, but three of the brand’s beloved, award-winning cleansing balms. Better yet, they’re limited edition scents (Pear Punch, Blueberry Burst, and Tangerine Twist), and you save 36%.
If you’re new to the cleansing balm game, this is a great way to see what the fuss is all about. They’re applied directly to dry skin, then massaged in before rinsing with water. It’s kinda wild how effortlessly and gently it melts away stubborn makeup, oil, dirt, and other makeup.
