The bells are ringing, the smell of hot cocoa is in the air, and the shops are packed full of people — which means the holiday season has officially arrived! And this year, we're promising not to wait until the last second to commence our extensive gift shopping (again). Deciding what to get each of your loved ones for the holidays every year can be daunting; we totally get it. But this year it doesn't have to be, especially with our extensive list of gift guides, beauty and skincare roundups, and more. Whether you're searching for a white elephant gift anyone would love or buying a present for the ultimate beauty lover in your friend group, we here at E! Insider Shop have you covered.
As one of our first gifts to you this holiday season, we found an ah-mazing deal on the cult-fave, luxe-beauty brand Lancôme. While popular items like the Advanced Génefique Serum are certainly worth the hype and splurge (especially if it's for a loved one), it nonetheless puts quite the dent in our holiday budget. But with the brand's Holiday Beauty Box, you can not only get the full-size serum, but six other bestselling full-sizes and three deluxe samples as well, for $79. That's $9 less than the serum's retail value ($88)! We don't know whether to call this a deal or a steal, but we do know that discounts like this don't come around often.
Learn more about what's included in the set and how to access this super special price below. Plus, we've rounded up all the best beauty gift sets that we — and the internet — highly recommend. From trendy TikTok-approved faves like Rare Beauty and Olaplex to splurge-worthy luxury beauty like Lancôme and Dyson, scroll on down to find our editor-approved picks any beauty enthusiast would love.
Lancôme Holiday Beauty Box
Lancôme's Holiday Beauty Box features seven bestselling full sizes and three deluxe samples, including an exclusive Holiday Palette with 10 multi-use color shades and one multi-use complexion shade. This may be the brand's best beauty deal ever, especially considering how buying just the Advanced Génifique Eye Cream on its own is the same price as this entire set. According to the brand, the beauty box is valued at $588 total, but you can get it for $79 with any $42 Lancôme purchase (either at the flagship online store or on Bloomingdale's website). In other words, it's the perfect justification for treating yourself to some new beauty this holiday season.
The beauty box includes:
- Advanced Génifique Serum, 1.0 fl. oz (full-size)
- Advanced Génifique Eye Cream, 0.5 oz (full-size)
- Absolue Soft Cream, 0.5 oz. (deluxe sample)
- Tonique Confort, 4.2 fl. oz. (full-size)
- Eye & face palette featuring 10 eye shades
- L'absolu Rouge Lipstick, exotic orchid 391 (full-size)
- Lash Idôle Mascara, black (full-size)
- Cils Booster XL Lash Primer (full-size)
- Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover, 4.2 fl. oz. (full-size)
- La Vie Est Belle, 0.13 fl. oz. (deluxe sample)
- Beauty box gold vanity case
