I might be slightly biased, but I think beauty products make the best stocking stuffers.
They're small, they're cute, and they're very affordable—at least, if you shop the ones on this list!
I've done the digging to find you the perfect skincare, makeup and haircare treats, each ringing in at under $20 (US).
Whether or not you're actually stuffing a stocking, these are ideal gifts if you're sticking to a budget (or if you just want to treat yourself!).
Check out this year's best beauty stocking stuffers below.
The Best Beauty Stocking Stuffers of 2020

Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm
Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm is a hydrating lip balm that comes in two sheer shades, as well as clear. The clean gel formula is spiked with hyaluronic acid, and the tints create a "your lips, only better" effect.

One Love Organics The Cleansing Sponge
One Love Organics The Cleansing Sponge is the prettiest konjac sponge on the market. But it's also practical, because it deep-cleans and gently exfoliates without irritating sensitive skin.
The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is a lightweight and fast-absorbing oil that is well-tolerated by most skin. It can be used instead of or on top of moisturizer, and even works on hair to add shine and heat protection. I did an in-depth review of this brand over here.

Tangle Teezer Original Detangling Hairbrush
Tangle Teezer Original Detangling Hairbrush is the OG detangling brush, with a patented teeth formation that smooths hair without snagging or breakage. It comes in a bunch of fun colour combos, like this purple brush with pink bristles.
Shiseido Facial Cotton
Shiseido Facial Cotton is a set of 165 cotton pads—and trust me, once you try these, you'll never go back to the drugstore kind. The high-quality cotton absorbs just the right amount of product, feels super soft, and never leaves lint behind on your face.
Kerzon Hand Cleansing Spray
Kerzon Hand Cleansing Spray takes hand sanitizer to the next level. It emits a non-sticky spray that doesn't require rinsing, and best of all, leaves your hands with a fresh, clean scent. (They had me at rhubarb!)
Sephora Collection Cooling Eye Mask
Sephora Collection Cooling Eye Mask is a glitter-filled gel mask that helps to soothe puffy eyes and take down inflammation. All you do is pop it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, and then slip it on.
Buxom Powerplump Lip Balm
Buxom Powerplump Lip Balm is a plumping tinted lip balm that reacts with your pH to produce a unique shade of pink. I just bought this and love it! The colour is sheer and pretty, and it gives your lips a satisfying minty tingle.
Bawdy Shake It Butt Sheet Mask
Bawdy Shake It Butt Sheet Mask is a sheet mask... for your rear end! You get two treatments, each with one sheet for each cheek, and they promise a plump and hydrated backside. (Apparently, butt is the new face?!)
The Inkey List Caffeine
The Inkey List Caffeine is an affordable eye serum that harnesses the anti-inflammatory benefits of caffeine. As such, it may help to reduce puffiness, while also delivering lightweight moisture. This is a good choice for daytime, under makeup.

Kitsch Scarf Scrunchies with Tails

Post-soak, you're meant to sweat it out while resting under a warm blanket for up to 30 minutes. Then you'll sleep like a baby!
