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.

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.
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.
