This post will be suggesting 14 Korean Skincare Sets that you can use as gifts this season.
If you’re new here, you’ll be pleased to know that I’m currently obsessed with Korean Skincare. In the past year, it has single-handedly transformed my dry dehydrated skin through their hydrating and moisturizing products. As such, I’m currently on a mission to inform everyone that needs to know about the awesomeness that is Korean Skincare.
As the holiday is around the corner, I know a lot of people have kickstarted their holiday plans such as buying gifts and whatnot. So, I thought I should put together a gift guide of sorts especially for those of us that are skincare enthusiasts.
One of my favourite things about Korean skincare is the avaliability of sample sizes and skincare sets. Korean products are generally known for being generous in their sizes. For them to make sample sizes avaliable means that they really have the interest of their consumers at heart. For someone like me that gets bored with products easily, I buy quite a lot of samples and skincare sets alongside my staple products.
So, if you’re curious about trying out new products, these Korean skincare sets will come in very handy either for yourself or as a gift this season.
14 Korean Skincare Sets You Can Use As Gifts
Some of these Korean skincare sets can be found on Amazon but StyleVana has a wide range of options you can choose from as well so don’t limit yourself. If you’re new to them, read about my latest StyleVana review. They also ship worldwide.
Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Starter Kit – $17
Some By Mi is one of those Korean brands that create targeted products with actives. Most Korean brands focus primarily on hydration, prevention and protection. A few of them like Some By Mi focus on treatment. So, if you want to gift someone this set, make sure you are aware of their skin concerns. That way, their skin will enjoy the benefits of these products.
This kit has a four-step system that contains a cleansing bar, a toner, serum and a cream. It is advised to use all four products together but it is also completely optional. Its primary ingredients are Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Lactobionic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, Centella Asiatica Extract, Licorice Root Extract and many more. This is an amazing kit for anyone with acne-prone skin.
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Skincare Set – $42
With the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner being a bestseller, you know that this moisture skincare set will be top-notch. Talk about hydration galore. This set contains three products including an Essence Toner, a Moisture Serum and a Nutrition Cream. With exotic hydrating ingredients such as Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract and Coptis Japonica Root Extract, this simple no-fuss ingredient list is perfect for people with sensitive skin that want some hydration. So, if you know someone with a dry or sensitive skin, they will really enjoy these products.
IUNIK Daily Serum Trial Kit – $20
IUNIK is one of those brands that blew up in 2020. They became well known for their five bestselling serums. Three of which are included in this kit.
