Beauty Kits

If you want to take your customers' unboxing experience to the next level, consider adding a beauty kit or subscription box to your mix. This is a great way to combine several of your products together into one shipping box, and you can customize the box with your own artwork.

Design a themed experience for your customers, where every element of the delivery - from the shipping box and postage label to the packing slips and product names - is branded with your logo. This will create a cohesive and memorable experience for your customers.

Beauty Kits Introduction

Requires viaGlamour's Plus plan


Beauty kits are perfect for bundling three or four cosmetic items inside. Due to the physical size of these colorful boxes, the large skincare products like the aloe vera gel doesn't fit inside these beauty kit boxes. You're limited to selecting products that are smaller than the beauty kits to ensure every item can be packaged inside of the box.

Bundles also allow you to combine multiple products together but there are a few differences when compared to kits. Bundles have no product restrictions unlike kits, bundles can combine an unlimited amount of products together unlike kits which only fit a maximum of four products, bundles do not ship with a beauty kit box in the order. You can create as many bundles and beauty kits as you want for your storefront.

Designing boxes

Each beauty kit box can be designed with a different illustration, design, or logo file that you provide to viaGlamour. Designing products is always free with viaGlamour. There are no setup costs, fees to update designs, or restrictions of how many designs you can create for your products!

You can upload a logo to viaGlamour and have each of the boxes automatically fitted with your logo design.

Upload a logo


When you bundle products into kits there's an additional option to have them fitted into a paper display tray. There are only a few possible product combinations where viaGlamour can provide a free display tray for your products inside of the beauty kit. If you select a combination of (3) products from a selection of concealers, lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, correctors, lip conditioners, lip scrubs, eyeshadows, lip balms, or blushes.

If your product selection for a beauty kit doesn't fit the requirements for a display tray, the presentation of products will still be very professional and delight your customers when they open your products. Products without trays will be individually packaged into black boxes and surrounded by kraft paper to cushion the products.

Creating seasonal designs

Each box can be customized with it's own design. The logo on your products can be different than the design that's printed on the box.

Design with Canva

Create unique designs for palettes using Canva

There are six different beauty boxes to select from, each one can be paired with a different design you create on Canva. This is perfect for seasonal designers whereas you could keep a certain style of beauty kits available all year (the plain white kits with the black trim) and create a holiday collection of products for an event like Halloween where both the box the products inside have a completely different design than the rest of your products available in your store.

Let customers build their own kits

Beauty kits are a specific set of products bundled into a custom shipping box that has your logo design. It can be difficult to create a configuration of products that every single customer will want to purchase considering the diverse ranges of skin tones and product needs. You can create a beauty kit with viaGlamour that has different product options for customers to configure before checkout.

For example, you could create a halloween themed beauty kit with a red gloss, red eyeshadow, and a glistening white lipstick with an optional eye spy sealer included inside of the box if the customer specifies that they want that beauty kit configuration for themselves. Build these kit options by creating several product variants of a beauty kit product to allow customers.
