Next Day Delivery is a guaranteed service within the UK – your order will be delivered the next working day, provided it is received before 4pm UK time and all items are in stock. Note that working days exclude Saturday, Sunday and UK Public Holidays.
International Express is a fast tracked service available on orders to be delivered outside the UK. Orders sent via this method will be assigned a tracking number so the progress of the parcel can be followed online. The order will be dispatched the same working day, provided the order is received before 4pm UK time and all items are in stock.
* Premier Service is currently not available on International Express orders to countries outside the EU due to customs restrictions on sample products.
All international orders sent to countries outside the EU may be subject to import charges. The Cosmetic World accepts no responsibility for these – please check with your customs office before ordering if you are unsure as to whether this applies to your country.
Often attempted delivery by your postal courier won’t result in a card being left. We always advise to check with your local post office or specific courier to ensure the parcel isn’t waiting on you.
Note that if your order is placed on a non-working day (Saturday, Sunday, Bank Holiday), it will be processed on the following working day.
