The Irish beauty gift sets to get your hands on from Boots (before they sell out!)

If there’s one thing we love more than beauty, it’s supporting Irish, female founded brands. From KASH to SOSU Cosmetics, Aimee Connolly to Ella & Jo, Irish beauty brands are taking off right now, grab them before they are gone!

Christmas is all about spreading joy and warmth, and there is no better way to do that than by supporting your favourite Irish beauty brands, this year Boots has partnered up with several of our favourite leading Irish brands to offer exclusive gifts set at incredible prices. If you’re looking for the perfect beauty gift, or perhaps looking to stock up on your faves, it’s time to listen up as these gifts are not available anywhere else!

KASH Beauty

KASH Beauty, founded by MUA Keilidh Cashell, is THE brand for makeup enthusiasts and professionals alike. We sat down with Keilidh to hear about her ultimate favourite products in the range. “Oh, it’s very hard to choose just one, especially since I have created all my favourites! My favourite at the moment would have to be our Skin Glazes. I just love how radiant they make my skin look, no matter how little sleep I get or how little water I have drank, they keep my skin looking plump and fresh.”

Well that’s good news, because the “KASH Beauty Signature Gift Set” (exclusive to Boots) contains one of Keilidh’s favourite signature Skin Glaze highlighters, plus five other products, two of which are exclusive to the set. Prepare for the ultimate glam with the Amber Aura 6 Pan Eyeshadow Palette and Vintage Satin Lipstick alongside the best selling Vintage Rose Lip Liner, innovative powder Silk, a Kabuki Brush and of course, the Skin Glaze Highlighter. 

KASH Beauty Signature Gift Set, €101.70, exclusive to Boots.

Does Keilidh have any holiday beauty rituals? “Yes! I love whipping out a red lip at Christmas, and just the extra bit of glam in general. In summer we wear less makeup and let the natural beauty shine through, in winter.. We get to layer up! I love the glitz and glam of it all.” We couldn’t agree more. Get the ultimate glam with the “KASH Beauty Signature Gift Set” and enjoy supporting an Irish brand that empowers creativity and self-expression, and get glam while you’re at it. 

SOSU Cosmetics

Suzanne Jackson, the brains behind SOSU Cosmetics, has become a household name in the world of beauty. She is also IMAGE Entrepreneur of the Year 2023. Her range of cosmetics and beauty tools are high-quality, affordable and they just WORK. The “SOSU Cosmetics Dream Come True Bumper Set” (exclusive to Boots) is a must-have gift set featuring a range of bestselling and specially curated products, allowing you to create endless stunning looks, all year round.

Sculpted By Aimee

Aimee Connolly is one of our ultimate favourite Irish beauty founders here at IMAGE. She is also a former IMAGE Young Businesswoman of the Year winner.  Her brand, Sculpted By Aimee brand focuses on enhancing your natural beauty. So what are Aimee’s hero makeup bag products? “I love Satin Silk foundation, it’s lightweight, and feels great on the skin, but has a full coverage. I can’t be without Hydra Lip in Blush (a coloured lip balm with SPF). My Mascara was the most phenomenal beauty launch, it’s such a good mascara. And I never go anywhere without our Bare Basics Palette”

Sculpted by Aimee Connolly The Treasured Gift Set, Was €110, Now €55. Exclusive to Boots

Well we are in luck, because Aimee’s Bare Basic Palette is included in the “Sculpted by Aimee Connolly The Treasured Gift Set” exclusive to Boots this year, along with a Hydraglo Mini Serum, a Line & Shine Double-ended lip liner and clear gloss, an Eyeliner Duo and a Buffer Duo Brush (perfect to use with the Bare Basics Palette!). 

One thing we love about Aimee is how her products encourage everyone to embrace their unique beauty and confidence, no matter their age. Her sets are a great gift for sisters, mums and even your granny. Aimee says: “We’re really proud of the age diversity of our customers. Our products are very age-transient. I love seeing a mother and daughter buying gifts for each other in the store.”

Ella & Jo

If it’s glowing skin you are after, then Ella & Jo is the brand for you. Created by makeup artist Charlene Flanagan and entrepreneur Niamh Ryan, Ella & Jo has made a name for itself with effective and simple skincare products and we can’t get enough. The “Ella & Jo Your Skincare Stars” is a game-changer for maintaining healthy, glowing skin throughout winter in Ireland and is exclusive to Boots. Think glowing hydrated skin matched with clean and inclusive skincare. The set includes Relax and Renew Night Cream, Plump & Protect Day Cream, Melt the day away cleansing balm and Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum.

Ella & Jo Your Skincare Stars, €110. Exclusive to Boots

We sat down with founders Charlene Flanagan and Niamh Ryan to hear about the inspiration for gifting from Ella & Jo this year. Charlene: “The campaign this year is called Magic Moments with Ella & Jo. When we show up consistently in our skincare routines it not only delivers benefits on the outside but on the inside too. Everyone deserves a magic moment everyday.” We couldn’t agree more with Charlene. 

What about their ultimate favourite products in the line? Charlene: “Mine has to be Plump & Protect Day Cream with SPF30. I never wore SPF before we formulated Plump & Protect, I wanted a formula that not only protected my skin but didn’t compromise on the hydration or my makeup. This is a dreamy daily formula.” Niamh: “Mine is our Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum. As someone with sensitive rosacea prone skin this is my saviour. It plumps and hydrates as well.”

And what will Charlene be hoping for this Christmas? “My main driver for this Christmas is to support all of our incredible Irish beauty brands, we have got such an incredible industry here in Ireland where you know you are investing in quality, products made with love and you’re supporting local employment as-well as putting Ireland on the map for high quality skincare and cosmetics.”

Supporting these remarkable female-led Irish beauty brands at Boots not only ensures you get gorgeous products but also means you are celebrating the hard work and dedication of these inspiring women who’ve turned their dreams into reality. It’s a win win!

So there you have it! From makeup to skincare, there is something for everyone at Boots this Christmas.
