Shipping, Returns and Errors
Cost of Shipping
The price of the goods does not include a charge for delivery. We ship from California, USA. A standard delivery charge of £21.99 is applicable for all international orders (except the following destinations: Australia and New Zealand, Hong Kong, Korea, Brazil, Russia for which rates are calculated by package weight and free shipping option does not apply). We also offer a number of expedited shipping options.
Delicate Skin Store is not responsible for delays in delivery due to events beyond our control, including shortage of materials, labour strikes, transportation failures or acts of nature.
The processing can take up to 14 days as we buy our products directly from the manufacturer. All customers are issued with the tracking number once the order has shipped (read more about the order processing time). Once inside your country the local postal operator will take control. They might change your tracking number to a local one. This change will appear on the tracking website.
If it has been more than 2 weeks since you received the shipping confirmation, but no parcel has arrived, please check with your local postal office. You may need to collect your parcel or arrange a delivery.
In some cases Customers might be required to pay the local custom charges, *depending on the jurisdiction.
Non-delivery and address errors
If your package is refused or undeliverable due to the error in the shipping address, the refund will not be issued. Internationally shipped packages are almost never returned to us.
In some counties, the package can be delivered to the local postal office and needs to be collected by the customer. You can follow the location of your package via the tracking number we provide and see if you need to arrange a collection.
Parcels that are not collected are sent back, but rarely actually reach our warehouse. However, if your package does come back to us, we will re-send it, subject to a GBP 30 fee.
You will see whether the package reaches us via the tracking number. This evidence is required for a re-send request.
