Value sets are often reserved for price-capped holiday gift swaps or last-minute birthday parties for friends-of-friends. Although they’re cute and great for travel, curated sets aren’t usually the first thing you land on when you’re browsing Sephora for yourself — but that’s all about to change.
The sets out now aren’t cheesy; they’re the best way to find your favorite new sunscreen, try self-tanner a few times to determine whether you really want to commit to the upkeep, or just spring clean your entire vanity before Memorial Day. Ahead, check out the best deals.
Dry skin doesn’t just disappear as quickly as that last pile of snow by the curb; you have to treat it 365 days a year — and this hydrating set should help. Bonus: The trio will cost you one-third of what you’d normally spend on a routine that covers all your bases.

By the time next month rolls around, you will have used up everything and be ready to move onto the next box.
