Kiehl’s knows how to make skincare gifting easy — especially around the holidays. Not only has the brand created entire sets focused around different skincare needs and concerns, but it also packages them in adorable boxes and wrappings. Whether you’re shopping for a skincare novice, looking for grooming products the men in your life will use, or searching for a little something for yourself, find the perfect present below. 


Power-Packed Essentials

This anti-aging set (which is perfect for mom!) contains three customer-favorite products — the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing, and Dark Circle Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum and Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Face and Neck Cream — to smooth, brighten and firm the skin. 

Brighten Up & Glow

If glowing skin is on your giftee’s wishlist this year (and who doesn’t want that?), the Brighten Up & Glow set is a perfect choice. It’s stacked with all of the products you need to build a healthy-skin routine from scratch with products like Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and Ultra Facial Cream that brighten and moisturize. 

Midnight Recovery Duo

Give the gift of an upgraded nighttime routine with this Midnight Recovery Concentrate Duo, which has two full-size bottles of the classic overnight serum. We love this for a his-and-hers gift — or to stock up on extras if this oil is in constant rotation in your routine.

Ultra Hydrators

Winter is a recipe for dry, dehydrated skin, but this four-piece gift set is here to help. No matter who you’re shopping for, everyone could use more hydrating skin essentials like Creme de Corps and Ultra Facial Cream in their cold-weather skincare arsenal.

Men’s Groom-on-the-Go Set

Looking for a gift set he’ll use? You can’t go wrong with the face and body products included in this men’s grooming set. Inside, find four products: the Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash for cleansing, Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream White Eagle for shaving, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for moisturizing, and Ultimate Man Body Scrub for exfoliating. 

Healthy Hands Trio

Pair frequent hand sanitizing and washing with cold temps outside and it’s a recipe for dry hands and rough cuticles. That’s why we’re positive this three-piece hand cream set will be put to good use. The mini moisturizers are perfect to throw in every jacket pocket or handbag. 

Men’s Fueled Up Favorites 

Does your partner constantly steal your skincare? It’s probably time to stock his shelf with skincare of his own — and this collection has everything he needs to get started. It contains the Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub, Facial Fuel Body Wash, Midnight Recovery Facial Oil, and Ultra Facial Cream. 

Merry Masking 

Self-care Sunday is getting a major upgrade with this adorable, nature-inspired masking gift set. Whether the goal is to minimize the appearance of pores with the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask, lock in hydration with Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask, or amp up radiance with Tumeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask, this trio has your giftee (or you!) covered. 

Kiss Me With Kiehl’s 

With mistletoe season officially here, this lip balm set is perfect for the holiday season. The gift contains the original Lip Balm #1 as well as the cherry and mint too. They’ll keep lips hydrated through the cold weather and underneath a face mask. 

Kiehl’s E-Gift Card 

The holidays look a little different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so if you’re not going to be able to see loved ones IRL, send them a gift card straight to their inbox. It’s an easy, last-minute gift idea that’s bound to put a smile on their face. 


Kiehl’s 6 Best-Selling Face Masks (and Which One Is Best for You)

Devoted Kiehl’s shoppers are well-versed in the brand’s best-selling products. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer or Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment? They’re practically iconic. With winter here, we’re currently focused on the brand’s selection of face masks. With so many tempting options, we’re breaking down six top-rated formulas to help you find the perfect Kiehl’s mask match for you.


Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask

This purifying mask with Amazonian white clay helps draw out impurities, dirt and oil from your pores to smooth, clear and refine skin. After use, pores appear minimized and excess oil is reduced. Despite its detoxifying abilities, we like that it doesn’t dry out skin.

Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask

If you’re experiencing redness or sensitized skin or just need a refreshing boost, reach for this soothing mask. In addition to calming ingredients like calendula and aloe vera, it has a lightweight, cooling formula that feels like heaven on skin. 

Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Overnight Mask

Overnight masks are great for delivering an extra dose of nourishment to your complexion while you sleep. This one has a rich and velvety texture that helps smooth skin and plump fine lines and wrinkles thanks to firming ingredients like hibiscus flower and ginger leaf.

Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Face Mask

To energize and brighten dull skin, this mask should be your go-to. It gently exfoliates with crushed cranberry seeds, while turmeric helps brighten. Let it sit on skin for ten minutes and then rinse for an instant glow and smoother texture. 

Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask

If hydration is your number-one skin goal, try the Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask. The rich and creamy mask is formulated with avocado fruit extract, avocado oil and primrose to nourish skin and seal in moisture. 

Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask

If you’re obsessed with the brand’s cult-favorite Ultra Facial Moisturizer, adding this overnight mask from the same line to your routine is a no-brainer. It helps replenish and retain moisture, so you’ll wake up with a softer and more supple complexion.


Exactly How to Bake Your Makeup

You’ve likely tried contouring, tightlining and even strobing. Next on your list should be baking. This technique (which honestly makes us crave cookies and not mad about it) essentially consists of using your body heat to “cook” and set your makeup on areas like the under-eyes, the T-zone and chin, resulting in a more flawless, creaseless finish. Say goodbye to cracked, cakey makeup! And though it adds some time to your routine, it couldn’t be easier to do. Just follow the four steps below and thank us after.

STEP 1: Apply eye cream first then concealer to the under-eye area, the chin, the T-zone — anywhere you need it. Make sure the regions you choose are completely covered in the formula. Use a brush to lightly blend out the makeup.

STEP 2: Take a loose powder foundation (try the Maybelline New York Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder) and dust it over the concealer. Again, make sure you cover the entire area as the powder is meant to seal your concealer. For more heavy-duty coverage, apply a second coat of powder, but this time, lightly dampen the brush prior to dipping it in the powder. 

STEP 3: Now it’s time to bake! Allow five to ten minutes for the makeup to set.

STEP 4: Using a fluffy foundation brush, dust away any loose powder on top and gently blend it out so there’s no discoloration or makeup lines.

Discovered a New Way to Use a Cult Classic Eye Cream and Makeup Has Never Looked Smoother

The perfect eye cream is hard to find. It has to have the right consistency, a formula that won’t give you milia or cause irritation and a blend of ingredients that actually delivers noticeable results. So once that holy grail is in your possession, there’s really no turning back. For many, that eye cream is the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado â€” it’s a bona fide classic. 

As its name suggests, the formula is creamy and emollient, yet is fast-absorbing and non-greasy. The star ingredient is avocado oil, which is packed with fatty acids to moisturize and soften skin, plus beta-carotene for a dose of antioxidants and shea butter to hydrate and make skin supple. Plus, a little goes a long way, so you get plenty of mileage out of a small tub. As if we needed another reason to love this eye cream, we recently discovered a new way to use it: as a primer for eye makeup. Trust and believe, it’s a game-changer. 

When we typically apply eye cream, we use a finger to lightly tap it (never pull or tug at the skin!) along the orbital bone, starting at the edge of the nose and outwards, and then up to brow bone. To try the primer hack, take another fingertip-full and gently apply it over the eyelid before going in with your concealer or eyeshadow. 

Unlike so many other eye creams, the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado doesn’t slide all over the place or make your skin oily or sticky. Instead, skin is smooth and hydrated, i.e. the perfect base for crease-free, long-lasting makeup. 

In addition to your shadow, your under-eye concealer will get the same red-carpet treatment. You’ll find that when applied after the Kiehl’s eye cream, your product glides on evenly without flaking and never settles into your fine lines which can make them look more pronounced. 

Excuse us as we add another tub – or three – to our carts.
