Thanks to my 10-Step Korean Skincare Guide, I’ve been getting quite a few emails from readers requesting Korean beauty gift suggestions for this upcoming Christmas.

I’ve listed 25 Korean skincare sets starting from the most affordable to most pricey and featuring affordable brands as well as luxury ones. There’s a variety of affordable travel-sized sets that are perfect for stocking stuffers or complete skincare regimens if you really want to impress someone this year.

su:m37 Secret Essence 5pc Set: $45.00

su:m37 Secret Essence 5pc Set: $45.00

Price: $$
Good For: Anti-Aging, Aging Skin, Sensitive Skin
Product Size: 2 Full-Sized, 5 Trial-Sized

SU:M37 is known for their cult favorites like the Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick (that was unfortunately discontinued), but I don’t think that their Secret Essence line gets enough love. It’s a great anti-aging skincare set featuring fermented ingredients that combat bacteria and rebalance the pH levels of the skin, which makes it not just good for anti-aging benefits but also for people who have either overly dry or sensitive skin or acne as well.

In this set you get 2 full-sized products as well as 5 trial-sized products, which pretty much gives you a full regimen (minus a cleanser). If that’s not a good enough bargain, look at how pretty the bottles are!
