The best Beautycounter holiday sets to buy — mini sizes of best sellers and new products.
Every year, Beautycounter rolls out exclusive gift sets for the holidays, and every year I’m SO excited to try everything and give the sets to people I love. I like to break some of these sets up into smaller gifts too! There are a few sets that make perfect stocking stuffers if you split them up.
This year, the Clean and Polished Minis set is my TOP pick. It has the best body exfoliator I’ve ever used. I also love the eyeshadow palette, Renew Your Body Duo and the set with the bamboo face exfoliator are my TOP picks from all the holiday sets and I fully anticipate that they will both sell out based on the holiday products that sold out first in the last few years.
Ready to see what’s included this year? Let’s dive in! (But first, let’s appreciate how cute Thomas was in a hoodie last year.)
Beautycounter Holiday Gift Guide
For your daughter or girlfriends
Mini Beyond Gloss Vault
This is my favorite lipgloss of all time. Why? It isn’t sticky and it stays on forever. I have about a dozen in my makeup drawer. This set includes four NEW colors: Cosmic Shimmer, Cranberry Shimmer, Cappuccino, Wild Berry. They’re mini sizes, and even the mini will last you months. They’re perfect for your purse, clutch, or car. This is one of those sets that I’ll split up and gift individually! I’ll send them to a few friends of mine with a card. Or give the full set to a beauty junkie who’ll be excited to try all the colors.
They’re all great for fall and winter, and the colors are designed to look good on all skin tones. Shop here!
Going Places Makeup Kit
This trio is PERFECT for your must-have makeup needs. It’s a lipgloss, mini mascara, and full-size cream eye shadow.
The lipgloss is in the shade Lotus Shimmer, which is a perfect everyday color. The mascara looks AMAZING when applied (although it DOES smudge on me – more details here), and this mini size is a great way to try it before committing to a full size. The third product in the set is a cream shadow in shade Solar. It goes on a super sheer shimmery highlight color so it pairs well with so many shades you already have. You’ll LOVE it.
I love this set for teenagers who are getting into makeup for the first time, or a friend who likes minimal makeup looks.
Essential Eye Palette
Beautycounter doesn’t have powder eyeshadows right now in their main makeup line since they’re reformulating them to remove talc, but they launched cream shadows in their place. While I like cream eye shadows, I was still SO excited to see a powder eyeshadow pallet in this set!
This new shadow is already talc-free and formulated with responsibly sourced mica (!), so it’s an amazing product. The colors are gorgeous and since there are only five shades, it takes all the guesswork away for eyeshadow newbies.
Another great pick for a girlfriend or daughter who’d love to play with the eyeshadow! I am keeping this for myself though!! 🙂
At The Red-y Lip Duo
I am SO excited about this set because I love a red lip for the holidays. This would be a great early Christmas present so they can use it all season long. This set comes in a Sheer Conditioning Lipstick in color Cherry, and a Beyond Gloss in Quarts Shimmer. Both are must-haves. Shop here!
Bright Side Duo
Okay this set is probably the best bang for your buck, and the IDEAL set for someone new to Beautycounter (or if you want travel sizes of your favorite skincare!). This set includes a mini Overnight Resurfacing Peel (which is a clean alternative to retinol!) and a mini All Bright C Serum. Both of these are must-haves in my skincare routine.
If you already have and love these products, this set is ideal for travel. If you don’t have them yet, I can’t think of a better way for you to try Beautycounter’s best products since both of these can be added to your existing skincare routine. Buy here.
For your mom
Best in Clean Heroes
This Beautycounter mini set is iconic. It includes some of my ALL time favorite products. Think of these as your Beautycounter mini must-haves.
- Mini All Bright C Serum
- Mini Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum
- Overnight Resurfacing Peel
- Mini Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion
- Beyond Gloss in Magnolia Shimmer
All five of these products are great for all skin types and the lip color is designed to look good on all skin tones so it makes a great gift to give (or keep!). You can think of this as a beginner skincare set, or travel sizes of you all-time favorites. Buy here.
Beyond Bright Minis
This set of All Bright products is great for anyone who already loves Vitamin C products. Beautycounter just launched their All Bright Toner this summer, and it’s truly AMAZING (my review here). This set of three contains the Toner, All Bright C Serum (review here), and the Brightening Facial Oil (review here), all of which I LOVE. It’s also just so bright and happy!
The nice thing about this set is that these products can be added to any existing skincare routine. Buy here!
Renew Your Body Duo
This is such a luxe gift set. I am gifting this for Christmas to multiple people, and I am also going to buy another to keep for myself. It makes a great holiday gift, birthday present, or self-care set. Both products are new, which is always fun!
This set comes with the BRAND NEW Reflect Effect Overnight Resurfacing Body Peel (SO excited to use this) and BRAND NEW Tightening Boost Body Serum. My aging + postpartum skin will benefit from these, ha!
I think this is Thomas’ favorite set. He’s a big fan of the 3-in-1 Facial Tool. 😉
This set includes my all-time favorite mask, the Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask in a mini size (my full review here), along with a full size Charcoal Mask which helps clean out and minimize pores, improve dullness and give me a super deep clean. If you have oily or acne prone skin, you can use it more often (2-3x a week). It also works well as a spot treatment. Buy here.
Goodbye Dry Body Duo
I love this combo for gift since it feels so luxurious!
This set comes with my favorite body scrub, the Sugarbuff Body Polish, and BRAND NEW Superquench Body Butter. The packaging is cute and perfect for a bathtub caddy (which would also make a great gift to pair with these).
This is a great gift for anyone because it doesn’t have to match skin tone or fulfill any specific skincare need. Buy here.
For your babysitter, dog walker, hair dresser etc.
Good Scents Hand Cream Trio
Every year Beautycounter makes a hand cream set, and every year I’m excited to use and gift them. They’re never greasy, but hydrate very well and smell amazing (which is saying something because I’m sensitive to scents). They’re small but they still last a good while. The packaging is amazing this year too, but I couldn’t snap a pic before publishing this post. I’ll add one ASAP! Get the Beautycounter hand cream here!
Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm Trio
This lip balm set is a great option for a small gift! You could break these up and pair with a coffee gift card for neighbors or teachers. I love that two of them are tinted (that’s what I would use most!) but that you also have the option of non-tinted. All three balms are formulated with murumuru and mango butters that are super moisturizing. Buy here!
Gloss and Glow Duo
I’m obsessed with Beautycounter’s cream blush AND their limited edition Jellies every holiday season. This set combines both for a perfect gift. The blush color is Nectar (which was my favorite shade of their powder blush and hasn’t been available in the cream until now!) and the Lip Jelly is in shade Pomegranate.
Both shades are universal, and a fun gift for anyone who likes beauty products. If you’re looking for a great babysitter gift, this would be perfect! I am for sure keeping this for myself, ha!
For your whole family
Clean and Polished Minis
I love this set because it includes three products for a basic nighttime routine. You have your mini Reflect Effect Bamboo Buff Exfoliating Polish (BRAND NEW!), mini Countermatch Refresh Foaming Cleanser (great for travel), and a mini Countertime Cleansing Oil (I use this everyday). While two different cleansers can feel a little confusing, I recommend using the Cleansing Oil at night to remove makeup, and the Foaming Cleanser in the morning since it works well in the shower. (Cleansing Oils should be applied to dry skin. Details here.)
This set is also a perfect for putting in a basket in the bathroom if you’re hosting guests during the holiday season.
I have a friend that’s going to buy this so she and her daughter can all have a travel size of their cleanser since they use different ones! I love this idea. You’ll be able to share the gift of clean beauty with people who haven’t tried it yet! Shop here!
Mini Clean Deo Trio
The only people I’d gift deodorant too would be family members, and these are perfect for stockings! These are perfect testers too for clean-deo newbies AND so cute. I love non-toxic deodorant (read my review here). Snag these to throw in stockings this year.
I mentioned above that I like to split these sets up to create smaller gifts. Things like the hand cream go well with a Starbucks gift card, and the lip gloss is great with a sweet note mailed to friend! There are lots of ways to make these sets smaller, but then again, who doesn’t love a full set of fun skincare goodies? :).
And no shame at all if you keep them for yourself. In fact, maybe go ahead and order 2 so you can keep one ;).
1. When I first joined Beautycounter as a consultant, I didn’t really believe when they said holiday products would sell out. But… after five holiday seasons with the company, I now know that they do. So if there is anything you KNOW you want, shop sooner than later.
2. I would also be sure to add Band of Beauty to your cart before checking out — It’s kind of like Sephora rewards… but better. You get free shipping on $100+ orders for a year and you’ll also get 10% product credit back on every order (it adds up fast!). You’ll get a free gift with your first order if you spend $50.
3. Be sure to select TeriLyn Adams as your consultant at checkout so I can help with any order questions that come up! I so appreciate it!
4. Make sure you’re on my newsletter to updates on any promos launching during the holidays, e.g. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals – sign up here.
5. You have 60 days to make returns, no questions asked. So, if you aren’t sure something will work for you, no worries! They even cover return shipping.
Okay, now for a cute Thomas picture from last year to close this post out.
