Shopping help needed (not tools)
« on: April 08, 2017, 10:45 AM »
Hi All,

I'm in Britain, and I have a teenage daughter. On a trip she bought some cosmetics by the US based company "Sephora". She is now running out of a lip balm, and short of travelling to France to buy it,  she can't get another.

Now this is my baby girl we're talking about, and I could get some serious "cool Dad" points (she's 16, I'm very uncool now) if someone could buy the stuff (or get their wife/daughter to buy it) and stick it in the mail to Britain.

Anyone care to help?

Ross

check out Amazon.ca. for your daughters product. Amazon.uk.co ships to Canada, so they should ship to the UK.

Sephora.com will ship directly to the UK.

"Sephora U.S. currently ships to the contiguous 48 U.S. states, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and to the following international locations: Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, and the United Kingdom."

I tried these. Amazon.ca doesn't list it. Amazon.com lists the item, but won't ship it to my address.

The Sephora website will not load and I can't find a link to online shopping.

Sephora france has online shopping, lists the product but not in the colour that Annie wants. There don't appear to be a Sephora Germany.....

One last thought-  we have a service in major US cities called taskrabbit.  Basically, for a reasonable hourly wage- someone will do any odd job for you.  Shopping and shipping are pretty common tasks.  I bet it'd cost you 40.00 to have someone in a city with a Sephora go by what you need and ship it to you.  Taskrabbit.com

 I'm using internet explorer, but it didn't work with chrome either.
She wants this http://www.sephora.com/kiss-me-balm-P386646?skuId=1694843&icid2=products%20grid%3Ap386646 colour #10 "lucky cherry" Its 3 bloody dollars is all, I just can't get a shopping basket.....

At my daughters school, makeup, especially lipstick is not allowed. Somehow this sort of product, being subtler, gets past. What the excuse is in Scandanavia, I can't imagine.

Clicking on the shipping and returns tab on the page you linked it looks like your problem is that you are under the 75 GBP figure where they have flat rate shipping. You need to either call them or email to sort out your order.
I'm happy to have it shipped to me here in Vegas then ship to you in the UK but you are adding a middle man and more expense when a phone call might fix it. Country code for the US is +1


Thanks,
John

There's a Sephora store not far from me here in Southern California.  If they have the product you're looking for I'd be happy to pick it up and send it to you.

Let me know if you're interested and send me a private message with your address and I'll find out shipping costs.

Happy to help.
