Get in touch
Thank you for visiting our store, we would love to hear from you! You could also try our friendly automated assistant (bottom right corner) for a quick response, or please use the form below.
Sorry we do not ship directly to these countries due to various issues with customs, nor will be able to in the forseeable future.
IF IN INDIA, please consider purchasing from our local partner: styledotty.com
FOR OTHER COUNTRIES, PLEASE CONTINUE READING:
If we do not ship directly to your country, you may wish to consider using a parcel forwarding company, who has an address in the UK and can forward the goods to you.
They typically charge per kilogram of weight and have the added benefit that you can buy from several online stores and have all your goods sent to you in one delivery, saving you on shipping fees.
Some countries (like India) restrict food imports, so please check also if you are placing an order for Dr V. Collagen Boost.
Below is a list of companies you could set up an account with, however we encourage you to do your own research for the best rates and shipping options:
Postbox Courier (for South Africa)
DHL EasyShop (for Middle East)
You will need to setup an account with your chosen parcel forwarder above and then use the address they provide for you as your shipping address when making purchases on our website.
Please note that Skincare by Dr V can only guarantee delivery to your chosen shipping address in the UK, and is not responsible for delivery to the final destination, which remains with the mail forwarder.
SINCE 24/3/22 we no longer ship to INDIA as customs bills have been unexpectedly high compared to historic levels.
SINCE 1/1/21 we no longer ship to Scandanavia (Except Denmark & Finland) due to Brexit changes.

CUSTOMS & TAXES
International taxes might be applied depending on your country's taxes policy. These are charged separately by the courier, who collects on behalf of your government. These are not included in our shipping fee as it is not paid to us.
Customs duty is calculated as a percentage of the total value of the order. You can use this Import calculator tool to estimate the duty.
Usually no customs are applicable on average order sizes to the USA (under $240 order value), but are usually paid in all other countries.
As an approx. guide, you can see a list of popular destinations below for combined customs duty and/or VAT.
USA*: 0% (under $240 order value)
For example an order value of £200 will cost £220 overall including Customs/VAT to a buyer in Australia at a rate of 10%.
*ince Dec 2022, a small number of packages are incurring unexpected customs clearance charges when sent via courier i.e. above £200 or approx $240. We will 100% refund any additional charges incurred to receive your item.
[RATES MAY CHANGE AFTER TIME OF WRITING, PLEASE CHECK YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT WEBSITE FOR THE LATEST FIGURES.]
