How do I place an order?

You have found your product!
Choose the desired quantity and the shade/size if applicable, then click on "Add to Shopping Bag".

Product unavailable
Among the Lancôme products you can purchase online, a product may temporarily be unavailable. In this event, when you click on "Add to Shopping Bag", a window appears to inform you that the product you wish to order cannot be shipped at this time. You will be invited to enter your e-mail address in this window, and Lancôme will send you a message as soon as the product is back in stock.

How can I monitor my order?

Once your order and payment have been validated, you will receive an initial order confirmation email to acknowledge your order. Once your order has been prepared and dispatched, you will receive an order dispatch confirmation by e-mail. In this second e-mail, you will find a parcel number.

Depending on the size of the parcel, your order may be sent via Royal Mail rather than DPD. Smaller packages are likely to be sent with Royal Mail. By clicking on the link to our delivery partner DPD or Royal Mail in the order dispatch e-mail, you will be able to track your parcel. See the links here - DPD - Track Your Parcel and Royal Mail - Track Your Parcel. With DPD, if the delivery date does not suit you, you will then have the option to change this using the tracking link provided.

For added convenience and extra services, you can download the DPD App. You can track your delivery to see exactly where the driver is on the in-app map. With push notifications through the app, DPD can notify you when your driver is 30 minutes away. If you’re not going to be in, you can pick the best alternative option for you: collect from a pickup shop; deliver to a safe place; deliver to a neighbour or change the delivery day. If you return home and your delivery has been missed, the driver will attempt a second delivery at a later date.

Can I cancel or change my order?

Operationally we have a fast turnover for order processing and once an order has been placed, we are not able to amend or cancel the order. If you wish to cancel your order, you are able to refuse the order at the door when it is delivered. Once the parcel has been returned to us we can then begin the refund process. This does not affect your statutory rights. Please read our E-Commerce Terms & Conditions of Sale for further information.
