Figuring out the right routine for your skin is all about trial and error—which is why a skincare gift set is a great way to get started.
Not only do you get more bang for your buck than if you were to purchase everything individually, but you also get the opportunity to try brands and products that you might not normally splurge on at a higher price point.
Plus, if you stick with moisturizing and brightening kits (and avoid anything to do with acne or wrinkles!), it can also be an ideal self-care gift for any beauty lovers on your list.
Here are this year's best skincare gift sets to give or get.

Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique Serum Set
Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique Serum Set improves and strengthens your skin with three expertly formulated serums. There's one to repair the skin barrier, one to soothe and moisturize, and one to decrease pore size for a smoother complexion.
Moon Juice Anti-Gravity Duo Resurface and Plump
Moon Juice Anti-Gravity Duo Resurface and Plump is a pair of smoothing and radiance-boosting products made with clean ingredients. The toner exfoliates with AHAs and brightens with niacinamide, and the jelly-like serum delivers non-greasy hydration.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Natural Brightening Stars is a trio of brighteners for dull skin and dark spots. They include an essence, a serum (reviewed here) and a night cream, which contain ingredients like glycolic acid and grapevine sap (said to be more effective than vitamin C!).

Drunk Elephant Precious Cargo Kit gives you a five-step skincare routine in a handy travel bag. The star product is the exfoliating AHA-BHA mask; you also get a gel cleanser, moisturizer, eye serum and face oil. I did a full review of this brand here.
Lano Jet Set Travel Essentials
Lano Jet Set Travel Essentials is your skin's "wingman" for long-haul travel. This kit of travel-friendly essentials in TSA-approved sizes includes a hydrating cleanser, a moisturizer and a nourishing leave-on mask. I'm currently using the cleanser as part of my fall routine, and love it!

REN Get the Glow is all about boosting radiance, evening out tone and smoothing skin texture. You can make it happen with the AHA toner, vitamin C moisturizer (featuring ascorbyl glucoside), and a once-a-week lactic acid mask.
