Today I have my very first Holiday gift set of the year featuring the Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland set. Each Holiday season Sephora presents some of the best curated box sets with hand-picked items to illustrate a theme such as skincare, hair hydration, nude lips, sunscreen, etc. Basically they select their best sellers and group them together into sampler boxes with deluxe or mini sizes at a value price. A few times a year they release a really good set, like this skincare sampler a few months back, and usually I jump to the opportunity to pick one up. I personally love these for myself because it allows me to try many new or raved about items without having to purchase individual full-sizes that may end up not working for me. For the Holiday season, it is super easy and tempting to get carried away with the sets because they contain so many good items with most kits being pretty affordable and hoovering around the $25 price point. I try to shop the value sets as soon as they launch since I know they will sell out fairly quickly.
The Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland set is a 13-piece set curated with products for visibly radiant skin from head to toe featuring pampering products with sensorial formulations, great textures, and lovely scents. This one is much pricier than any other skincare sampler I’ve purchased from the Favorites collection at $64 but the selection, sizes and brands included are pretty impressive. In this set you’ll receive:
- 0.16 fl oz/ 5 mL AMOREPACIFIC The Essential Creme Fluid
- 0.338 fl oz/ 10 mL boscia® Porefecting White Charcoal Mattifying Treatment Primer
- 0.74 fl oz/ 22 mL Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel (one set of 5 skincare treatments)
- 0.5 fl oz/ 15 mL Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
- 1.7 fl oz/ 50 mL First Aid Beauty® Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer
- 1.52 oz/ 40 g Foreo LUNA™ Play
- 1 fl oz/ 30 mL fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask
- 0.338 oz/ 10 g IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm
- 2 fl oz/ 59 mL Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Vanilla Apricot
- 0.5 fl oz/ 15 mL Kate Somerville® ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
- 0.25 fl oz/ 7 mL OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum®
- 0.3 oz/ 8 g SUNDAY RILEY C.E.O. C + E antiOXIDANT Protect + Repair Moisturizer
- 0.08 oz/ 2.5 g tarte Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment
Overall, I love this set and I am definitely impressed. While I do find it on the pricey side, as I said before the content more than justifies it, especially since there is a Foreo Luna Play included and a full-sized First Aid Beauty moisturizer. If you’re looking for a good gift for the skincare junkie in your life, or keep to yourself because you love sampling skincare items like me, this kit is definitely a great one to try this season or gift away.
