If you don’t know where to begin to take care of your skin, skincare sets for men or better-boxed gift sets can be a great place to start.
Many brands in the face wash, cleanser, moisturizer, shaving and general skincare space package their best products into skincare gift sets, meaning you can get everything you need for tip-top skin in one purchase.
Depending on what you’re trying to do — general skin upkeep, total skin overhaul, fighting acne, shaving or body skincare — there are a million skincare gift sets perfect to get you started or to give to someone else to kickstart their skincare journey.
We picked out a few of the best skincare sets for men below. Every one of them contains multiple products to help you keep your skin looking and feeling great.
1. Geologie Personalized Skincare Set
If you know you want one of the best skincare sets for men but have no clue where to begin, let Geologie do the heavy lifting for you. Geologie offers customizable skincare sets based on a short five-minute quiz you take at the website. It’ll ask you about your current skincare routine, any conditions you have or might develop and what your priorities are out of a skincare routine. When you’re finished, it’ll generate a custom set of products that will best address your needs, no extra thinking required.
So whatever you think you might need for your skin — a good cleansing, deep moisturization, acne-fighting power or general anti-aging — Geologie has the right product and will help you find it to deal with whatever the issue is. If you love your set, subscribe to get it delivered monthly or cancel before your 30-day trial ends.
Since we can’t effectively show you a Geologie customized set, you can also check out the Geologie Normal Skin Regimen #28 trial set to get a sense of what you’re in for.

2. Disco Regimen Skincare Set for Men
Since it first came onto our radar last year, we’ve pretty much been obsessed with Disco, one of the best men’s skincare brands in the world. This skincare company uses unique, dermatologist-designed formulas made specifically for men’s tougher skin types. Virtually all of the brand’s products are worth your money, but if you’re looking for a men’s skincare gift set, for yourself or a loved one, then we highly recommend the Disco Regimen Set, which contains three of their best anti-aging and cleansing products.
You’ll get the award-winning Repairing Eye Stick to fight dark circles, as well as the incredible charcoal Purifying Face Mask, one of our favorite skincare face masks for men. The set comes with three more Disco products, all of which carry the brand’s signature eucalyptus scent. For just $116, the Regimen Skincare Set from Disco is an absolute steal.

3. Kiehl’s Groom On-The-Go Set
BEST SKINCARE GIFT SET
Whether you’re a frequent traveler or trying to gift some great skincare to one, you can’t go wrong with the Kiehl’s Groom On-The-Go Set.
It comes in a holiday-friendly gift box, but the real gift is inside: Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash, Facial Fuel Daily Energizing Moisture Treatment and Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap. We’ve used all of the above and can attest that they’re really all you need for all-over body skincare and are perfectly sized for packing and flying. Regular SPY readers may already know that Kiehl’s makes some of the best face moisturizers for men, and this skincare gift set is a great way to treat yourself (or a loved one) to more of the brand’s most popular products.

4. Bevel Skincare Set for Men
BEST FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Bevel’s relatively new to the men’s grooming game but in just a few short years the brand’s gone from offering a few top-notch shaving products to a bevy of top-notch skincare products. The Bevel Skincare Set for Men has three essential products useful for any man trying to maintain quality skin: a cleansing face wash, exfoliating pads and a face gel moisturizer. All three rock and you seriously won’t need anything else if you’re good about using them. For its quality products and very reasonable price point, we think the Bevel set is one of the best skincare sets for men.

5. Lumin Complete Skincare Gift Set for Men
Lumin wasn’t always around, but in the last couple years, we’ve been seeing their anti-aging skincare products everywhere. But rather than picking them up piecemeal, get all of Lumin’s best skincare products in the Lumin Complete Skincare Gift Set for Men. Trust us when we say this brand makes some of the best men’s skincare products you’ll find anywhere.
It includes Lumin’s moisturizing balm, charcoal cleanser, dark circle defense, exfoliating rub, anti-wrinkle serum, recovery oil and a bonus microfiber washcloth. With all those products, there is no skin situation you can’t successfully tackle, whether it’s bumpy skin, dark eye circles, wrinkles or whatever else you can think of.
Plus, everything comes in a nice black box, making these skincare sets for men a great choice for gifting.

6. Malin+Goetz Saving Face Skincare Set
GREAT FOR GIFTING
When winter is coming, especially if you live in a biting cold state, you want to be prepared. No, we don’t mean coat, hat and mittens, we mean you need the Malin+Goetz Saving Face Skincare Set.
In this skincare set, you get Malin+Goetz’s Grapefruit Face Cleanser, Vitamin E Face Moisturizer and Detox Face Mask. You can use the cleanser and moisturizer every day for winter-ready skin and can swap the cleanser out for the face mask a couple of times a week. If you do that, we swear you’ll just be complaining about how damn cold it is instead of complaining about leathery, dry winter skin.
Plus, the set comes in a sleek modern box that’ll stand out on any counter or make for one of the year’s best skincare gift sets for men. If you’re buying Christmas gifts early this year, then you can’t go wrong with this luxury grooming box.

7. Jack Black Skin Saviors Set
It’s so easy to overlook our lips when thinking about skincare, but lips age and undergo sun damage too. That’s why you might consider the Jack Black Skin Saviors Set. It features the brand’s daily facial cleanser, face buff energizing scrub, face moisturizer and, of course, lip balm. It’s one of our favorite sets because we love Jack Black’s grooming line and it’s also Amazon’s Choice for “men’s facial care kit.” In short, that means it’s one of Amazon’s most popular and best-reviewed men’s facial care kits. While Amazon’s Choice gets it wrong sometimes, this time, Amazon nailed it.

8. Black Wolf Nation Skincare Set for Oily Skin
BEST SKINCARE SET FOR OILY SKIN
The Black Wolf Nation Skincare Set for Oily Skin has a lot that’s appealing. First, the set includes four essential skincare products: an eye gel, an exfoliating facial scrub, an activated charcoal face wash and an oil-free moisturizing gel. Second, it offers a pretty solid value for all four. Third, we like the simple no-frills bottle design and clear labeling because it’s really annoying to have to look closely at a bottle before grabbing it. Fourth, all the ingredients are natural and just make sense for their oil-cleansing purpose, whether that’s the charcoal in the face wash or the hyaluronic acid in the moisturizer. Lastly, the kit comes in a sleek toiletry bag, which is majorly convenient for staying organized at home or when traveling.
Take all these points together and we think it’s obvious this is one of the best skincare sets for men and would easily be one of the best skincare sets for a male friend or relative.

9. Rugged & Dapper Active Regimen Grooming and Skincare Set for Men
EVERYTHING YOU NEED
The Rugged & Dapper Active Regimen Grooming and Skincare Set for Men stands out from the bunch because it’s focused on all skin. To that end, this set includes a two-in-one body wash and shampoo, a face wash, a facial moisturizer and a shaving cream. If the fact that everything comes in a travel bag wasn’t enough of a hint, this kit is perfect for traveling or even just replacing all your necessary grooming products in one fell swoop.

10. SCRUBD Complete Collection
FOR THE ENTHUSIASTIC GROOMER
Everything you need for optimal face skincare comes in the SCRUBD Complete Collection. Use the face wash for an initial cleanse and follow it up with the deeper-cleansing face scrub. Move on to the anti-aging face serum for powerful rejuvenation and then the eye gel underneath the eyes. Doing that a few times a week will save years on your face. The skincare set also comes with two lovely triple-milled soap blocks, one in charcoal and black pepper and the other in cedarwood and grapefruit, and a convenient denim dopp kit/wash bag.
It is pricey, but it can kickstart a new routine for yourself or be a premium gift skincare set for someone else.

11. Scott Hamish Blue Blended Men’s Daily Skincare Gift Set
GIFT WRAP READY
If you’re here looking for something to gift to a grooming man in your life, go for the Scott Hamish Blue Blended Men’s Daily Skincare Gift Set. Setting the products to the side for a sec, this box is gorgeous, like, is this thing for a skincare set or does it have a baller Scottish sweater inside?
Obviously there’s no sweater. Instead, you get Scott Hamish’s whiskey-inspired Blue Blended Toner Essence, Blue Blended Lotion Essence and Blue Freedom Capsule Cleansing Foam. And when we say whiskey-inspired we mean design and ingredients too. The essences come in whiskey-style bottles and they rely on barley and malt, essential whiskey ingredients, to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. Top it all off with the fragrances of fresh bergamot, mandarin scent, green tea, blackcurrant, musk and wood, and you can see why we call this non-sticky skincare set gift wrap ready.

12. Rituals The Ritual of Samurai Classic Invigorating Routine Set
HIGHLY RATED SKINCARE GIFT SET
We’re not saying the Rituals The Ritual of Samurai Classic Invigorating Routine Set will turn you into a samurai, but this skincare set for men certainly aspires to a bushido-level standard of grooming. At least, it’s an Amazon favorite with 87% five-star ratings on over 975 ratings.
And what’s not to love? You can cross your body and beard off your grooming list with this skincare set because it comes with two foaming shower gels, a body moisturizer and a shaving cream. Everything also smells fantastic, with notes of bamboo, sandalwood, cypress, basil and ginseng.
And if you know someone else who would appreciate it, the skincare set was designed to be gifted too, with cool bottle designs and a classy box that just screams “something very nice contained within.” One reviewer on Amazon agreed, saying of the products, “The quality is very good. They have a divine smell and the presentation is very beautiful.”

13. NIVEA Men Complete Skincare Collection for Sensitive Skin
BEST BUDGET SKINCARE SET
The NIVEA Men Complete Skincare Collection for Sensitive Skin is excellent for one simple reason: It’s incredibly cheap for the five totally solid skincare products you’re getting. For about a quarter of the cost of some of these other skincare sets for men, you get NIVEA’s shaving gel, post-shave balm, face wash, face lotion and a three-in-one shampoo, body wash and moisturizer.
Add in the fact that these products are great for sensitive skin too and come in a nice toiletry bag and you can see why we’re hot on NIVEA.

14. Geologie Sensitive Skin Regimen #03
FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
While we think going the personalized route is the way to go for Geologie, we had to highlight the Geologie Sensitive Skin Regimen #03. If you just know you want products made for sensitive skin, this will be one of the best skincare sets you can get your hands on. It includes two bottles of face wash, a morning face cream, an eye cream and a night cream. Not only will these products not irritate your skin, but they’ll also rejuvenate it so it’ll feel less sensitive going forward.

15. Kiehl’s Nourishing Hand Cream Gift Set Trio
PERFECT FOR HARD-WORKING HANDS
Hands may be the most taken care part of skin for most people, but they’re also the most worked. If you’re finding that despite your best efforts that you just can’t seem to get past dry, irritated hands, you’re going to want to buy the Kiehl’s Nourishing Hand Cream Gift Set Trio.
The set, which comes in a holiday-friendly gift box, isn’t just any old hand lotion set. You get Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve and two bottles of Kiehl’s Richly Hydrating Hand Cream, one in lavender and the other in grapefruit.
Small enough to throw into a work bag or glove box, any one of these three hand creams will be a savior when your hands just can’t take the dryness anymore.

16. Harry’s Shave & Shower Travel Kit
BEST FOR SHAVING
If you want a great skincare set for men that’s shaving forward, Harry’s will never let you down. The Harry’s Shave & Shower Travel Kit has everything you need for everywhere, just with the high-quality shaving gear you’d expect from Harry’s.
This skincare set includes a Harry’s Truman razor handle and single head, a travel-size shave gel, two-in-one shampoo and conditioner, a face wash and a travel cover to protect the razor blades. Plus, everything comes in a pretty legit toiletry bag.
Overall, Harry’s set has a lot to offer and would make for a great first purchase if you’re trying to upgrade your shave game from disposables.

17. Proactiv 3 Step Acne Treatment
BEST FOR BREAKOUTS
Proactiv may not be the sexy brand it once was, but they still make some of the best acne-fighting products out there. The Proactiv 3 Step Acne Treatment has been more or less unchanged for at least a decade because it simply works. This skincare set for men includes a benzoyl peroxide cleanser to remove oils, grime and break down acne, a toner for additional cleansing and evening and then a benzoyl peroxide repair treatment to fight future breakouts.

18. Ancient Greek Remedy Organic Spa Skincare Set
LUXURIOUS BODY CARE
Though it’s marketed toward women, the Ancient Greek Remedy Organic Spa Skincare Set has a ton to offer to dudes too.
Wherever you’ve got cracked and dry skin, you’ll find something here to deal with it. The oil and buttercream moisturizer will make short work of any dry patches, whether face or body, the two soap bars will keep you clean while maintaining your hard-won soft skin and the foot balm will make you wonder why you’ve been living easily irritated dry feet all these years.
Not to mention, the set comes in a stylish ancient Greek history-inspired blue box that you’ll be excited to open up personally or gift to someone else.

19. SpaLusive Luxury Spa Set for Men
THE SPA EXPERIENCE
Every once in a while, even dudes can appreciate the spa experience. But instead of paying a premium to go to an actual spa, pick up the SpaLusive Luxury Spa Set for Men. This skincare set, which ships in a convenient dopp kit, brings six essential skincare products to the table: SpaLusive’s 2-1 Hair & Body Moisturizing Wash, Nourishing Bath Soap, Hydrating Body Lotion, Exfoliating Body Scrub, Detoxing Bath Salts and pouf loofah.
If you’re a guy who’s never taken a bath with bath salts, you’re just straight-up missing out on a rejuvenating and relaxing experience that’s literally thousands of years old. Buy it to treat yourself or gift it to someone else you know needs a little skin and mental self-care.
