If you have a skincare lover in your life, and have no idea where to start for Christmas, I’ll be floored if you don’t find the perfect pressie in this blog post. I’ve included skincare sets to suit all budgets! If you’re looking for stocking fillers or your Santy pressies, you’ve come to the right place :p
I have ALWAYS been obsessed with skincare. My mam encouraged me to look after my skin from a really young age and I’ve been enjoying the process ever since! So with all of those year’s experience, I like to think I know what I’m talking about :p
I’ve featured some of my absolute favourite brands and those that I don’t use myself, are included because they’re adored by my friends, family and Instagram pals!

Casmara Christmas Sets
I’ve been using and loving Casmara since 2017 and this year, I was asked to be their Irish Brand Ambassador… imagine!!! I was absolutely thrilled to be recognised by such an established brand that I ADORE, so of course I said YES!
The difference with Casmara, to a lot of other brands on the market, is that their results are clinically proven, their products are cruelty free, vegan and a lot of them are made from 99 – 100% natural ingredients. Casmara is a Spanish brand but it’s distributed in Ireland by a beautiful lady Susan, of Eden Beauty Group, and so I love that I’m supporting an Irish business at the same time.
As brand ambassador for Casmara, my followers can enjoy 10% off with code “Carly10”. Casmara can also be bought in Eden Beauty Group (Wicklow Town) and AP Fashion Nails (Ashbourne, Dublin).
My Picks: The Travel Kit, Daily Defence Duo, 24K Gold Algae Mask and the Vitalising Christmas Gift Set! Alternatively, you could book in your special someone for an unbelievable Casmara facial (in Eden or AP Fashion Nails). Read about some of my previous treatments here.
Charlotte Tilbury Skincare Sets
Unfortunately, Charlotte’s FAMOUS Magic Cream is just too rich for my v.sensitive skin but since so many people I know adore it, I figured it wouldn’t be right to leave it out. If you or someone you know :p, are a fan of Magic Cream, there are some deals to be got this Christmas.
Dermalogica Christmas Sets
Dermalogica claims to be the number one skincare choice for skincare professionals worldwide :0 Initially it was only available to buy from qualified skin care professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute (in the US) but nowadays, we are lucky to be able to buy it more easily. I am a huge fan of the Phyto Nature Firming Serum, the Pre-cleanse Balm, the Smoothing Moisturiser, the Stress Positive Eye Lift and the Anti-oxidant Hydra Mist.
Emma Hardie Skincare Sets
Moringa Balm fans rejoice… look at the deals Emma Hardie has on this Christmas! These are great value and this product is a holy grail one for most of Instagram :p
My Pick: The teeny tiny Moringa Balm because it’s SO cute!
Image Skincare Christmas Sets
I have a soft spot for Image Skincare because the chemical peels and the Clear Cell range, cleared up my skin up for my wedding, which was really bad around that time. You can read more about that experience here.
Besides that, I love A LOT of image products. To name a few… the Ormedic Cleanser, the Lip Balms, the Skin Polisher, the Vital C Overnight Mask and the Vital C Serum. You really can’t go wrong with investing in Image but please make sure you read the guidance on the website and choose what’s right for your skin type.
The Image Skincare Christmas sets are unbelievable value this year (and every year!). Even if you’re running low on your fave Image products, see can you get it in one of the Christmas sets (it will more than likely work out at better value!).
NUXE Skincare Sets
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have heard me go on and on about Nuxe Skincare, in partcular the body oil and body spray (the summery one :p). There’s nothing I love more than smothering myself in the oil after my shower before bed. The smell is so relaxing and I think any of the gift sets would make a beautiful gift this Christmas.
My Picks: Honestly, I would be happy to receive any one of these sets!
REN Skincare Christmas Sets
Compared to most of the brands in this blog post (I did say they were lavish ;p), REN is reasonably priced skincare brand and definitely one to consider if you’re only starting off on your skincare journey. REN are best known for their coveted Hot Cloth Cleaner, Radiance Mask and Sleep Spray!
Ritual Cosmetics Sets
I loooove Rituals. I have had so many products over the years and believe I’ve tried most of them (at least the ones I wanted to!). The body butters and sugar scrubs are my favourite products and the Ritual of Sakura is my fave scent. I also love the Ritual of Happy Buddha too.
My Picks: Any of the Ritual of Sakura sets.
Skin Formulas Skincare Sets
Everything about Skin Formulas, I love! It was established by an Irish lady, Geraldine, from County Tipperary only this year! She ran a very successful clinic herself for 13 years and since she got to know what works/ doesn’t work and clients’ wants and needs, she decided to release her very own skincare range.
Skin Formulas is all about the active ingredients and let’s be honest, if you want to see a difference in your skin, active is what you should be shopping for! I really love HYDRA which is a serum full of (you guessed it…) Hyaluronic Acid. It is incredibly hydrating.
My Picks: Luxurious Essentials Set for Normal to Dry Skin (because my skin is like the Sahara!)
Sanctuary Spa Christmas Sets
Every year without fail, I get my mam a Sanctuary set as one of her pressies. The stuff is so nice, reasonably priced and feels really luxurious on your skin. I’m obsessed with the Body Salt Scrub, Body Wash and the Body Butter. They all smell divine!
My Pick: Luxe Travel Treasures.
Trilogy Skincare Sets
Trilogy Rosehip Oil is an absolute staple in my skincare routine and has been for many years. My skin gets quite dry, particularly in winter, so this oil is a god send. Oh and if you mix a drop with your foundation… thank me later!
Yonka Skincare Christmas Sets
A holy grail brand for many, including the Skin Nerd herself, Yon-ka is a brand that I was introduced to only this year! I think their face masks (No 1 & No 105) are some of the most effective on the market and their Spray Lotion (Spritz) is very soothing and hydrating, particular in the Winter and while travelling.
My Picks: Yon-ka Hydration Gift Set.
Well, I hope you can tell, that took me ageeessss haha! So I hope it was worth while and it has helped you find a gift for that skincare lover in your life. I’ll be shocked if it didn’t :p
Happy shopping and thank you as always for reading,
