Will I receive a text or call to let me know my delivery is on its way?

Yes, you will receive an email or text from us (depending on the information you have given us at the checkout) stating that your products are on their way. This email or text message will include a link where you can track your order. Please allow 24 hours for the tracking to update before contacting us about the whereabouts of your order.

Do I need to be at home to accept the delivery?

For UK Deliveries

With Hermes, no. The driver is able to leave your order without a signature providing they are confident that the area your parcel is to be left is safe and secure. They will then leave a card for you to advise where the order has been left.

If they do not feel happy there is a safe place to leave your parcel they will take the order away with them and leave a card advising you on what to do next.

With Royal Mail, yes. If you are not home, Royal Mail will leave a ‘Something For You’ card and you will be able to collect your parcel from a nearby sorting office.

International Deliveries

The process for deliveries outside of the United Kingdom varies from country to country.

 

I missed my delivery! What do I do?

If you miss your delivery three times, the parcel is returned to us. When the parcel is returned to us, you will be refunded for you order minus a £4 administration fee and the delivery fee.

For example, if you paid £15 for a product plus £3.95 delivery, you would be refunded £11  in total (£18.95 - £4 - £3.95 = £11).

If you wanted the products after they have been returned to us, you will have to reorder through the site as normal.

 

Oops! I’ve given you the wrong address. What do I do?

Please email us as soon as possible and we can change the address provided it has not been dispatched yet. Alternatively, you can log into your account and change your address there.

If the parcel has been dispatched, we can discuss a change of address with the courier. Although, this is not always possible. You would not be refunded for your order if you don’t receive it due to you providing an incorrect address.

I haven’t received my order. What do I do?

Please email us at admin@samplebeauty.co.uk and we can investigate this for you.

An item is classified as lost by Hermes and Royal Mail when it is missing for:
15 working days in the UK
30 working days for delivery to Europe
35 working days for the rest of the world.

Please allow for these timescales to pass then we can investigate further.

During very busy periods we may incur delays and we will keep you informed.
