17 New Holiday Beauty Products I Added to My Target Basket
If there's one thing I know how to do exceptionally well, it's shop at Target. Sure, as a shopping editor, it's quite literally my job to keep track of new product arrivals and frequently browse through the sites of top retailers. But even on a personal level, I visit Target weekly (often multiple times per week, if I'm being honest) and always manage to leave the store with much more than I bargained for. I love seeing all of the fresh and affordable releases from the retailer, and right now, the Target holiday beauty section is especially captivating!
As the holiday season nears, Target has joined the likes of so many other brands in debuting a fresh collection of seasonal beauty offerings that includes everything from special, limited-edition holiday arrivals and skin-care sets to bath bombs, body washes, and even a candy-cane-infused lotion or two. There are so many fun items that just hit the shelves for November — all of which could make great gifts for the beauty-lover in your life or just help you to upgrade your own skin-care cabinet with a festive touch.
I created your ultimate shopping guide to all of the best Target holiday beauty products that I put in my own basket on a recent visit to the store so that you can know what's really worth scooping up before it's gone. These special seasonal goodies tend to sell out incredibly fast, so snag them while you can. They're the perfect stocking stuffers for loved ones!

A Sweet Face Mask: Que Bella Holiday Hot Cocoa Mud Mask
Make your next cozy night at home that much sweeter with the help of this Que Bella Holiday Hot Cocoa Mud Mask ($2). The face mask helps to detox skin and leave you feeling fresh with a decadent, hot-cocoa-inspired scent. Alternatively, if you're hoping for something that will refresh your skin with more of a brightening power, this Que Bella Glowing Snowflake Glitter Mask ($2) is another great option to shop, too.
A Rich Body Butter: Tree Hut Candy Cane Whipped Body Butter
Of all the newly debuted Target holiday products, this Tree Hut Candy Cane Whipped Body Butter ($8) might just be my favorite. The whipped lotion spreads so effortlessly on the body and leaves my skin with an ultrasmooth finish. Plus, the candy-cane scent is noticeable but not at all overbearing (which I appreciate!).
A Nourishing Chapstick: Burt's Bees Cranberry Spritz Blister Lip Balm
Even if you don't want to go all out in stocking up on Target's holiday products, you can still incorporate a subtle and festive touch into your day-to-day life with this Burt's Bees Cranberry Spritz Blister Lip Balm ($4). The product has all the same nourishing benefits as other chapsticks from Burt's Bees but with a cranberry-spritz-scented touch. The lip balm smells so divine, you may even feel inspired to whip up a cranberry cocktail of your own!
A Seasonal Staple: Native Limited Edition Holiday Spiked Eggnog Deodorant
Believe it or not, you can even upgrade your deodorant to have more of a festive flair, thanks to this Native Limited Edition Holiday Spiked Eggnog Deodorant ($15). The product is one of several limited-edition holiday scents that Native is debuting this year. Shoppers can also stock up on the deodorant in cinnamon, bergamot, and fresh mistletoe scents.
A Refreshing Mask: Holler and Glow Snow Much Love Printed Hand Sheet Mask
While the skin on your face might get all of the attention, the rest of your body deserves the same kind of love, care, and hydration, too. With this Holler and Glow Snow Much Love Printed Hand Sheet Mask ($4), you can keep your hands feeling hydrated and fresh even through the notoriously dry winter months.
A Stocking Stuffer: Hero Cosmetics Rescue Mission Skincare Set
I'd argue that there might not be a better stocking stuffer than this Hero Cosmetics Rescue Mission Skincare Set ($10) — especially for someone who is always on the go! The products work to visibly flatten pimples and also provide postblemish care for damaged skin.
A Winter Essential: O'Keeffe's Winter Skin Essentials Hand Lotion Set
During the winter months, it's always a chore trying to keep my skin hydrated and free of cracks or rough spots. This all-in-one O'Keeffe's Winter Skin Essentials Hand Lotion Set ($10) features two nourishing lotions that target dryness on both the hands and feet, making it the most perfect skin-care essential this holiday season!
A Cult-Favorite Set: Thayers Witch Hazel Facial Toner Holiday Skin Care Set
The Thayers Natural Remedies Witch Hazel Facial Toner has evolved into a cult-favorite skin-care product (and we have TikTok to thank for it!). I'm personally obsessed with using the solution as the first step in my nighttime skin-care routine. And this Thayers Witch Hazel Facial Toner Holiday Skin Care Set ($13) is such a great gift for anyone who, like me, uses the product often.
A Festive Facial: Fantasy by Masque Bar Santa Purifying Sheet Mask
While Target's holiday offerings are always top notch, this year's selection feels extra festive — particularly in the skin-care department. Treat your nighttime skin-care routine to a holiday-infused touch, provided by this Fantasy by Masque Bar Reindeer Purifying Sheer Mask ($3). According to the retailer, the mask is meant to calm and soothe with the help of ingredients like lavender extract. Shoppers can also pick up a Fantasy by Masque Bar Santa Purifying Sheet Mask ($3) while they're at it!

This limited-edition EOS Shea Hand Cream Gift Set ($12) is one of so many new arrivals in the latest Target holiday product drop. The hand-cream trio feature three separate and compact lotions that are perfect for throwing in your purse, car, or even the top drawer of your work desk. The vanilla cashmere scent is particularly divine!
For the Skin-Care-Lover: Avatara All Is Calm Skincare Set
In my professional shopping opinion, there's no such thing as having too many sheet masks at home. With this Avatara All Is Calm Skincare Set ($5), you can get three separate pieces all in one and choose to use whichever mask best fits your mood in the moment. Shoppers can stock up on the Avatara Lip Duo Skincare Set ($10), too.
A Funny Gift: Da Bomb Bath Fizzers Naughty or Nice Set
This Da Bomb Bath Fizzers Naughty or Nice Set ($10) is too funny. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of naughty or nice, you can still enjoy a cozy night at home with these bath treats. Plus, there's even a fun surprise incorporated into each of the bath bombs!
For Relaxation: Dr. Teal's Lavender Regimen Bath and Body Gift Set
Frankly, this Dr. Teal's Lavender Regimen Bath and Body Gift Set ($10) is a great gift for any occasion. But given the stress that often comes along with the holiday season, it's sure to feel like an even more welcomed surprise for anyone in your life who could use an excuse to stop and unwind.
A Cozy Cream: Native Limited Edition Holiday Candy Cane Body Lotion
While I don't necessarily love to eat candy-cane-flavored things, I can't help but get excited about a candy-cane-scented moisturizer or body wash. This Native Limited Edition Holiday Candy Cane Body Lotion ($13) is a new arrival in Target's holiday beauty section, and I'm convinced it's going to fly off of the shelves this season.
A Bestseller: Olay Facial Skin Holiday Duo Pack
The skin-care-obsessed friend in your life will be so delighted to get this Olay Facial Skin Holiday Duo Pack ($24) as a gift this season. Olay has no shortage of quality moisturizers, serums, and face oils that help to nourish the skin with an extra boost of radiance. This limited-edition holiday set includes trial-size jars of the Vitamin C + Peptide 24 Face Moisturizer and Retinol 24 + Peptide Face Moisturizer.
A Shower Essential: Joon X Moon Shower Steamer Holiday Sample
As relaxing as baths can be, I'll admit: I'm a shower girl through and through. So naturally, I was so excited to find this Joon X Moon Shower Steamer Holiday Sample ($12) in Target's holiday beauty section. The tiny tablets fit perfectly on the shelf in my shower, and combined with the steam, they immediately fill my bathroom with scents of lavender, cocoa, and a slight peppermint smell.
For Holiday Cheer: Tree Hut Holiday Cheer Shea Sugar Body Scrub
All of my favorite seasonal aromas come to life in this Tree Hut Holiday Cheer Shea Sugar Body Scrub ($8). The nourishing body scrub is perfect for all skin types. Plus, it features scents of warm mulled spices, cooked sugar, and sheer woods. After using this, you'll smell like a festive delight from the moment you step out of the shower.
