One of the nice things about the holiday season is the amount of gift sets that are out there. They are perfect for us travelers who don’t like to check bags but still need to carry our favorite skin care products around. As you continue to shop for gifts, make returns and take advantage of holiday deals, I would pick up some of these travel skin care sets for yourself!

Kopari – Coconut oil. The gem. The fountain of youth. That is all I have to say. Now onto the sets….

I’m not a fan of highlighting non-cruelty free brands but given others aren’t as tied to the cruelty-free list, here are some notable mentions. Admittedly, there are some on this list that I wish were cruelty free.
