  • Unfortunately, we can no longer offer express worldwide delivery to Brazil, Cambodia & Macau, however we can still offer standard worldwide delivery.
  • Unfortunately, we can no longer offer delivery to Albania, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Sudan, Russia & Turkey due to problems with parcels clearing customs in these countries.

Please note: We always aim to ensure European / Worldwide and express orders are delivered within the above time scales, however we cannot accept responsibility for delays caused by unforeseen circumstances, such as remote locations (e.g. offshore islands), customs clearance or busy holiday periods.

Further Delivery Information

Orders placed on Saturdays / Sundays or Bank holidays will be dispatched on the following working day (subject to stock availability).

During the Christmas and New Year period it might take longer to dispatch your order (up to 7 working days).

In the event of delivery not being possible within 14 days (UK) of receiving the order, we will undertake to keep you informed of any changes and give you the option to cancel the order and receive full refund of monies paid.

If an item is out of stock we will aim to contact you within 5 working days of your order being placed. We may offer alternative items or inform you of the date that we expect the missing item(s) to be back in stock.

The majority of orders will arrive within the delivery times stated above, however, please allow at least 10 working days for UK delivery & 25 working days for international delivery before contacting us, as we are unable to investigate with couriers until this time has passed.

Some international orders may have to pay customs duty; this is at the discretion of the country posted to. Beautology is in no way liable for any customs charges incurred by its customers.

If the customer does not agree to pay the customs duty, the parcel may be returned to Beautology and the value refunded will be less the customs duty or cost of return from the courier (if charged) and less the cost that Beautology paid to dispatch the parcel.

Beautology cannot accept responsibility on all orders include express international orders for delays caused by unforeseen circumstances, such as customs clearance or busy holiday periods. In these instances, the original shipping costs cannot be refunded.

If a parcel is lost, we are not able to offer a straight refund, we will however send out a replacement.

Any goods not received within the above timescales must be reported to Beautology in writing 25 working days from the date of dispatch. Please note we cannot accept responsibility after this date due to courier regulations regarding the compensation for lost parcels.

Please ensure the delivery address provided at checkout is correct. We cannot be held responsible for failed deliveries whereby the address provided by the customer is not accurate. If a delivery fails due to a customer supplying an address incorrectly, we will not re-send or refund the order until the original parcel has been returned to our premises.

The products you order will be delivered to the delivery address you give when you placed your order, however, if you are a new customer placing an order for the first time we reserve the right to post only to the billing address provided should this differ from the delivery address.

Upon receipt of your order you may be asked to sign for the parcel received in good condition. If a parcel appears to be damaged in any way DO NOT accept the delivery and notify us immediately.
