Delivery and returns

Ordered today, shipped the same day
Orders placed on weekdays before 16:00 will be dispatched the same day. Orders placed between Friday 16:00 and Saturday 14:00 will be dispatched on Saturday. If you place an order after Saturday 14:00, it will be dispatched on Monday. 

Not home?
If you are away from home on the time of delivery, DHL will try to deliver your package to your neighbours or a DHL ServicePoint. You will receive a card in your letterbox from DHL. It will indicate where the package was dropped off in the street or at which DHL ServicePoint you can pick it up the next business day. Would you like to choose another delivery time or location? Use the Track & Trace code on the yellow card to choose another delivery option. Changes can be made on the day you receive the card.

You will receive an email when your parcel is ready for pick-up at a DHL ServicePoint. Your parcel will be held for you for seven calendar days, after which it will automatically be returned to Skins Cosmetics. Please bring valid proof of identity when picking up at a DHL ServicePoint.

Sample Sets
Did you order a Sample Set? We pack the selected samples for you with great care and send them in a letterbox package with a Track & Trace code. Letterbox packages have a delivery time of 1-2 business days. It is also possible to have a Sample Set sent as a standard package by choosing this option at the check-out.

Climate-neutral delivery
Skins Cosmetics' orders are sent climate-neutral via DHL Parcel. This is because DHL is working hard to reduce its CO2 emissions. The CO2 they still emit, we compensate together. Both DHL and Skins Cosmetics pay part of the compensation costs. DHL invests the proceeds in certified Gold Standard projects in developing countries. Furthermore, it offsets emissions there and contributes to promoting the economy. DHL also offsets shipments within the Benelux through Land Life Company. By investing in large-scale reforestation projects, together we restore important ecosystems, promote biodiversity and provide social and economic benefits to local communities.
As a recipient, you can easily do your bit too. Not at home at the scheduled delivery time? Then change the delivery time or location via the Track & Trace code. This way, the delivery driver is less likely to stand before a closed door, and no unnecessary kilometres are made. Are you going for the greenest delivery option? Then have the parcel delivered to a DHL ServicePoint.

Can my order arrive in multiple deliveries?
Yes, this is possible. We deliver from two different warehouses, so it may happen that products come from different warehouses and your order will be delivered in two parts. We will always strive to make delivery as fast and efficient as possible.
