The festive season is fast approaching and lots of exciting advent calendars and gift sets are already appearing. With offerings available from a selection of big names, including Philip Kingsley, Jo Malone, Selfridges, Aldi, Charlotte Tilbury, Missoma and more, this time of year is an ideal excuse to spoil a loved one or even just treat yourself.

Whether you fancy dipping into a brand you’ve not tried before, or have a go-to Christmas gifting favourite, we’re here to help inform your festive purchases. Speaking of preferred picks, Drunk Elephant serves up skincare products we’ve regularly featured in our tried-and-tested expert shopping guides.

So, we were very excited to hear about the brand’s Christmas gift sets that have just launched, showcasing a selection of product offerings and price points. Billed as a biocompatible skincare company, Drunk Elephant focuses on easily absorbable and effective active ingredients promoting healthy pH levels. The brand also firmly believes there are six components – alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreen, fragrance or dyes and SLS – responsible for nearly every skin concern, so these don’t feature in any products it produces.

The Drunk Elephant holiday collection includes a range of sets, and all incorporate skincare goodies to offer brightening effects. We’re extremely tempted by the sound of these special skin pick-me-up gifts, and have found out more to help you choose between them. They’re presented in signature fun, bright packaging too. Read on for everything we know about Drunk Elephant’s Christmas gift buys.

A morning routine to wake you up during the festive season and beyond, there are four products included within this set. These are the full-sized c-firma fresh day serum, 28ml (£66, alongside the smaller 30ml protini polypeptide cream, 8ml protini powerpeptide resurf serum and the taster-sized 5ml c-tango multivitamin eye cream. The latter product featured in our round-up of the best Drunk Elephant buys, where our reviewer praised it as being “incredible for conditioning skin and restoring it to its natural, glowy brightness.” Sounds like those early morning Christmas peepers will be instantly refreshed, no matter how early Santa arrives.
