Oh, decisions, decisions. From the skin care fanatic friend to the #makeupoftheday selfie aficionado, there seems to be a plethora of beauty gifts for everyone. Even better, these gift sets cost less than the actual value of the individual products, so you may well just want to get one (or two) for yourself.

Karuna Flawless Skin Kit

A serious value, this sheet mask kit not only includes four face sheet masks; an eye mask; three of their new, totally genius melting boosts (put one on trouble spots under your sheet mask); but a foot mask and a hand mask, for head-to-toe gorgeousness this holiday season. , $39 (valued at $74),

Introduce your favorite Millennial to the must-have beauty line with this chic iridescent makeup bag filled with all the basics she’ll need — from dry shampoo to cream highlighter to micellar face wipe — for her multi-tasking, on-the-go life. $48 (valued at $60),

    Wonderful selection. Clarins has been my favorite during my 20s! It’s kind of emotional to see that they still make the same bottles and many products like the Cleansing Milk. Ah, it really helped my skin so much!
