With all the stress that can build up with last minute office work, errands, and travel plans give skin the gift it needs. We can’t recommend Korres beauty sets enough. Check out their Brighten & Nourish set which is our personal favorite. This skincare set is perfect to use from day to night. Their rose collection is our best pick. The set is worth over $100 but retails this holiday season for $65. You can stay within a pretty great budget while simultaneously splurging on the top notch skincare you deserve. Plus Korres is a great brand which focuses on natural skincare remedies, rather than too many unreadable lab cooked up “isms”. Bonus? Their products smell like a dream.
