7 Skin Care Stocking Stuffers To Buy Everyone On Your List This Year

Or buy for yourself — I won’t tell.


It’s the time of year again when you have to find a bunch of small-sized gifts to stuff into a sock. However, there are only so many things that fit the bill. (Socks, nail polish, a McDonalds’ Happy Meal toy, etc.) But, rather than doing a Dollar Store run, filling the stocking with a bunch of random items, and calling it a day (the way I usually do), give the gift of skin care. There are plenty of amazing products that are just the right size. So, check out some of these stocking-sized skin care stuffers.

We only include products that have been independently selected by Elite Daily's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Mega Greens Galaxy Pack

Glossier’s Mega Greens Galaxy Pack ($22, Glossier) is sure to be a crowd-pleaser because it works for all skin types. The detoxifying mask gives its users soft, plump, matte skin.

Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb

After all the stress of the holidays, everybody needs some serious relaxation. Beyond being so on the seasonal theme, Lush’s Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb ($6, Lush) includes lavender oils and a dreamy scent to take away any tension the body’s holding onto.

The Pleasing Pen

Any Harry Styles fan on your list will be tickled pink by The Pleasing Pen ($30, Pleasing). The singer’s beauty brand just released its first drop, and this two-in-one serum is cooling, hydrating, vegan, and clean, so that about checks all the boxes.


When it comes to skin care, it doesn’t get any cuter than Starface’s Hydro-Stars ($15, Starface). While the hydrocolloid makes pimples disappear overnight, the stickers themselves make for an adorable accessory.

Winter Glow Essentials
Mario Badescu

With hand cream, lip balm, facial spray, and body soap, Mario Badescu's Winter Glow Essentials kit ($15, Mario Badescu) is pretty much all you need to deem that stocking stuffed.

Pineapple-C Bright Serum
Glow Recipe

There aren’t very many products that I swear by, but Glow Recipe’s Pineapple-C Serum ($25, Glow Recipe) is an exception. After a few weeks of using this serum, my skin reached glass-like status. It has an enzyme-rich formula that exfoliates while aloe soothes, so you can stay hydrated as it combats concerns like dark spots and acne.

Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Cleanser

The most important part of a balanced skin care routine is a cleanser you can trust, like Kiehl’s Facial Cleanser ($22, Sephora). “This cleanser is mild but effective, doesn't strip moisture, and is gentle enough that my mildly sensitive/acne-prone skin hasn't reacted to it in 4+ years,” one reviewer wrote.
