Holiday Gift Guide 2020: The Best CBD Skincare Sets

With the cold, dreary and dry months of winter ahead, the holiday season is prime time to give the gift of glowing skin. The not-so-secret ingredient to look for when shopping for luxe lotions and fancy face serums for the beauty queens on your list? CBD, of course. The non-intoxicating cannabis plant extract continues to make its way into personal care products and is celebrated for its effectiveness at combatting inflammation and irritation while calming other common skin stressors. Whether you want to treat a loved one to a new regimen or splurge on your own self-care, here are the 11 best sets for the skincare-obsessed.

Vertly Florals Bundle

Crafted in small batches in its Northern California lab, Vertly combines broad-spectrum CBD with active botanicals in its face and body care line. Among its beauty bundles — all discounted for holiday shoppers — is the Soothing Florals CBD Face Mist and best-selling Lip Butter in a subtle rose tint. $60, vertlybalm.com

Happy Dance Feel Good Bundle

Find a new happy place with the help of actress Kristin Bell. Launched last month in partnership with luxury CBD brand Lord Jones, this holiday bundle features a Whipped Body Butter, Coconut Melt and Bath Bombs. A trio of tranquility for the skin and soul, it does good for others, too. Happy Dance donates a percentage of all profits to A New Way of Life Rentry Project, a Black‑owned, Los Angeles‑based nonprofit that provides housing, case management, pro bono legal services, advocacy, and leadership development for women rebuilding their lives after prison. $70, doahappydance.com

Saint Jane Calm Duo

With Saint Jane’s award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum as a base, your face will shine even brighter when paired with its most recent release. Wrapped and ready-to-gift, each travel-size serum comes with Bright Repair Eye Cream, which was formulated to combat under eye circles with 10% active Vitamin C and Green Tea that cools on contact for calmer, more rested-looking eyes. $90, saintjanebeauty.com

Mandara Silent Night Bundle

Upgrade your winter wellness ritual with Mandara’s Zen Luxe Oil, which works wonders for the skin and scalp, and can also be added to the tub for an indulgent soak. Post-bath and before bed, pop one of its Dream Nighttime Gummies (available in tart apple or watermelon), each dosed at 30 milligrams for the ultimate beauty sleep. $100, mandaracbd.com

The Feelist Fully Charged Set

The solution to achieving dewy and hydrated skin in the dead of winter is The Feelist’s Necessity moisturizing cream and Most Wanted multi-purpose oil. Both instant best-sellers since the plant-based beauty brand’s launch this summer, the duo is bundled together for holiday gift season with each product packed full of broad-spectrum CBD to bring your face and body back to life. $150, thefeelist.com

Prima Grounded & Glowing Trio

Known for stringent clean beauty standards and an ethical corporate philosophy, you can’t go wrong with any one of Prima’s exclusive holiday kit offerings. My personal favorite features three everyday essentials: Night Magic, an intensive facial oil for hydration and radiance; Skin Therapy, an ultra-rich body butter for deep hydration; and The Daily, a vitamin-like softgel for essential balance of body and mind. $155, prima.co

Moon Mother Hemp 3-Part Beauty System

Handcrafting its highly concentrated beauty and wellness products from the CBD extract of seedlings grown on their own hemp farm in Boulder, Moon Mother Hemp’s signature three-step skincare system includes a nourishing Hemp & Manuka Honey Mask, brightening Hemp Eye Serum and soothing Hemp Skin Serum. $185, moonmotherhemp.com

Antedotum Love Skin Set

This Aspen-based CBD skincare company introduced earlier this year with the miracle-working Elixir Firming Serum, a rejuvenating nectar designed to aid collagen restoration and leave skin tauter and plumper; and a nourishing Vital Face Oil, the antidote to lackluster, inflamed and dehydrated skin. A percentage of every Antedotum purchase goes directly the Posse Foundation, a leadership organization for diverse youth and just for the holidays, the product pair comes with a custom toiletry case. $195, antedotum.com

Mineral Nourish Kit

Founder Mills McQueen formed Mineral after cannabinoids healed him following a near death experience while summiting Mt. Pisco in Peru. As powerful as the company’s collection of whole-plant tinctures are, its skincare formulas are equally as effective through the use of isolated and purified terpenes. The Nourish Kit features a body oil, face oil and cleanser. $225, mineralhealth.co

Humble Flower Essentials Collection

From the Humboldt County-based pioneering cannabis skincare company comes a complete body care experience featuring its luxurious CBD-based Body Oil, Relief Balm and Body Lotion — each blended with essences of jasmine, rose, arnica, clary sage, ylang ylang and lavender. $225, humbleflower.com

Muri Lelu Full Skin Ritual

Cultivate a clean and simple routine with Muri Lelu’s debut duo. Released earlier this year, its Bloomrise Sativa Serum sets the skin up in the morning for flawless days, while the Mauvaise Herbe Indica Oil hydrates and turns back visible signs of aging by night. Both formulas are powered by whole flower cannabis extract and naturally nourishing active ingredients like pressed seed oils from tomato, watermelon, sunflower and jojoba. $270, murilelu.com
