Value sets are often limited to the holiday season, but we think these kits are underestimated and so much more than just easy last-minute gift options
. Filled with a handful of hero favorites from some of our most-loved brands, these gift sets are treasure troves that let you try a line's best products without fully committing.
After all, you'd never urge your mother to buy that full-size night cream without sampling it or your broke best friend to go for a $52 body scrub. And when you're in a beauty rut and confused about what works for you, these sets will push you in the right direction without running up your credit card debt.
