One thing that I have realized from talking to my Irish friends and some fellow beauty bloggers is that the Republic of Ireland tends to get a pretty raw deal when it comes to finding beauty boxes that will ship over there, despite all UK beauty boxes happily shipping to NI!
With this in mind, I have collated a list of all of the beauty boxes I can find that will ship to Ireland, some of which are UK-based and some of which come from further afield. There are currently 11 boxes all told, and I will update the list as and when I hear of more, so read on for my current list of Irish beauty subscription boxes.
Birchbox is the biggest name in beauty boxes both in the Ireland and the UK, which means they top the list and showcase a huge range of brands and products that won’t appear in other boxes. The box costs £10 (GBP) per month plus £2.95 shipping to Ireland, meaning you don’t get gouged on the postage either!

Glossybox is a large, international beauty box brand, and they have been serving Irish customers for longer than any other company. Glossybox costs €14 plus €5 shipping per month, and again contains a mix of full-sized and travel sized items, and offer excellet value for money.
Look Fantastic starts at £15 (GBP) per month for the month to month option, with good reductions available for longer-term subscriptions. This includes free shipping to Ireland. Look Fantastic offers a range of makeup, hair and skincare items ranging from travel to full sized, and tends to be more slanted towards skincare than makeup as a general rule.
So Susan Lip Love Bag
The So Susan Lip Love Bag contains four makeup items per month, all from So Susan and/or their two sister brands: Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics, all contained in a specially themed canvas zipper bag.
The bag is priced in USD but ships from the UK, and costs $20.95 per month with shipping all included. The products are always full-sized items only, but I would say having received several bags now that their full-sized items are often a lot smaller than you might expect, compared to other brands.
Love Lula is more of a green beauty subscription box, and they specialise in products that are natural, organic, veggie, vegan etc. While you can’t have the one-month box delivered to Ireland, if you sign up for their three monthly or annual subscription options, they will ship to the Republic for an additional £5 per box.
The three month subscription costs £52.50 and the annual option £210, all priced in GBP and including shipping to Ireland (or worldwide).
Glowwbox is a beauty box specially designed to meet the needs of Women of Colour, or women with non-Euro hair and skin. Glowwbox is priced in GBP, and costs £15 per month, plus £7.95 for shipping to Ireland.
Kawaii Panda is the UK’s first Korean beauty box subscription, offering a range of full-sized Korean or K-beauty items each month. They are happy to ship to Ireland, and the box costs £18 (GBP) per month, plus £6.95 shipping.
They also offer a mask pouch, containing five single-use sheet masks each month too for £8, which is shipped free if bought with the main box.
It is also worth noting that this box does not auto-renew every month-you have to revisit the site, re-order and check out every month that you wish to receive a box.
Nourish Beauty Box
The Nourish Beauty Box, like So Susan, is priced in USD, ships from the UK, and delivers to Ireland. It costs $34.95 per month with shipping included, and consists of a limited edition printed canvas bag-for-life, and three full-sized items of makeup and skincare that are always paraben, GMO and cruelty free, and usually sourced from natural, organic and sustainable suppliers.
Lip Monthly costs $12.95 (USD) per month, with shipping to Ireland included-plus, use code 50OFF to get 50% off your first bag!
Lip Monthly sends a small zipped makeup purse each month containing around four makeup items, of which three are usually lip products, and the fourth is a random piece of makeup. This is a fairly cheap subscription at the price, but I have found that the quality of the products somewhat reflects this!
Mishibox is the second K-beauty or Korean beauty box that ships to Ireland, and this one comes from the USA. Like Kawaii Panda, the items are full sized, and each month’s box costs $19.95, plus $5.95 shipping, which is very good value given the type and cost of the contents you receive.
La Ritzy is a USA based cruelty-free beauty box, which offers two different options per month: the LaRitzy Box at $24.99, containing 4-5 luxury and full-sized items, or the LaMini box for $14.99, which contains 2-3 luxury and full-sized items.
Shipping to Ireland for either option is an additional $10 per month.
Well that’s all of the beauty boxes that I can currently find that will ship to Ireland-if you know of any others, please get in touch and I will add them!
