How will my order be delivered?
All orders are dispatched using either DPD courier services (where requested) or Royal Mail, with the exception of orders containing 2 or more aerosols and very heavy packages, which will use our partnered courier service.

Any requests for Next Day Delivery - Royal Mail or DPD may change this service to a 2 day service due to the distance and the method of transport required.
