Do not send hazardous products through this service - scroll down for our specialist services

We offer a fast and reliable service at competitive prices and are able to ship cosmetics (foundation, mascara, lipstick and eye shadows etc.) and beauty products to over 220 countries worldwide, providing they are not flammable or hazardous and if you have any doubts, you can contact our dedicated customer service team for advice.

Our online booking system is so easy to use that you can have your collection and delivery arranged in a couple of clicks at a time and place that's convenient for you.

From Maybelline New York to Estée Lauder, Overland Express can have your essential cosmetics, beauty and skin care products delivered straight to homes or workplaces so no-one has to skip their daily routine.

We've worked in partnership with the biggest names in the logistics industry like, DHL, Parcel Force and UPS for over 25 years meaning our customers benefit from the same great service at much cheaper prices.

A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.

Use our 'Quick Quote Tool' above and choose from a variety of cosmetic delivery options that suits you. All of our prices include access to tracking your shipment of beauty products and up to £50.00 of cover against loss or damages (glass or similar fragile items excluded from damage compensation) with the the option to purchase enhanced insurance for expensive shipments of cosmetics (again, glass and fragile items are excluded from any kind of damage compensation even though the option may exist to purchase this cover).

When you are shipping cosmetics and beauty products, you must package them carefully. Glass and fragile items can break in transit if not packed correctly. Always wrap them in several layers of bubble wrap and place them in a larger box. Allow a gap of at least 50 mm around the fragile and fill any gaps with packing peanuts or bubble wrap. If there is more than one glass or fragile item in the box, allow space between them to make sure that they are not touching each other. This should cushion these items in the event that the box is dropped.

Fill any voids with plenty of packing peanuts, or bubble wrap. Once the packing is finished, shake the box lightly, you should not be able to hear the cosmetics moving around, or touching any other items within the box. If there is any movement, add further packing material and check again.

Once you are happy with the packing, close the box and seal with parcel tape. You then just need to print off the parcel label and attach it to the box.
