Whether you choose to spend this holiday season at home or on a far-flung tropical beach sipping mai tais, the best beauty products can travel anywhere. That’s why T+L’s beauty editors have pulled together our favorites of the season—ideal gifts for the cosmetics expert, the skincare novice, the low-maintenance guy, and more.
From Givenchy’s crocodile-encased Le Rouge lipstick to Chanel’s camellia-embossed highlighting powder and Burberry’s Winter Glow face collection, this season’s cosmetics are bold, bright, and more long-lasting than ever—perfect antidotes to dreary, cold winter weather.
Our favorite holiday sets are great for one-stop gifting; the best part: all the products included come in travel-friendly sizes. We’ve curated a range of options, including an all-in-one regenerating facial kit by La Mer, Tom Ford’s collection of mix-and-match fragrances, and a Jo Malone box set of fan-favorite scents, creams, and more.
We’ve also highlighted some of the top skincare products of the year, from tech innovations to covetable classics. Swedish brand Foreo’s user-friendly sonic brush is especially great for men; SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence, a tried-and-true anti-aging formula, gets an artful update; and La Prairie’s eye and face compact offers hydrating touch-ups on the go.
After road-testing hundreds of products, we’ve come up with a list of diverse gifts (at a variety of price points)—all travel-approved.
