Happy day! Sephora.com is now shipping internationally to the United Kingdom, Japan, and South Korea. You can read all the nitty gritty fine print about international shipping here. Otherwise, some quick info: shop as usual on the U.S. site, select the country you’d like to ship to on the “My Basket” page., and orders are “guaranteed at the exchange rate set when your order is placed.” Some brands are excluded (such as Dior, Givenchy, Hourglass to name a few, but I don’t have a full list — if you discover any, it would be great to get a list going!). Hopefully, they’ll implement a system that shows what is available for international shipping in the future.
International shipping is available at flat rate costs, based on meeting certain thresholds (not that high, actually), and Sephora says, “Guaranteed all-inclusive costs (no additional fees at delivery).” If you don’t meet the threshold, they will charge you actual shipping costs. Items that are considered hazardous (aerosols, alcohol-based products, such as hair spray and nail polish remover) are not available for international shipment due to restriction to ground-only transport. Flat rate shipping fees if you meet minimum purchase threshold:
- Japan: ¥1,500 JPY on orders over ¥10,000 JPY
- South Korea: ₩15,000 KRW on orders over ₩100,000 KRW
- United Kingdom: £10 GBP on orders over £75 GBP
List of excluded brands (updated)… These brands do not appear to be eligible for international shipping at this time:
- Bobbi Brown
- Illamasqua (will not ship to UK, will ship to Japan/South Korea)
- Josie Maran
- Soap & Glory
- Urban Decay
