I’ve just found out about this very cool website that allows you to shop from the States and have it sent to the UK. Hanes and Victoria’s Secret (even though it’s rumoured to be coming to UK), GAP and Old Navy are amongst the stores but better yet is that it allows you to shop from department stores such as Macys, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, including the beauty department of course! The ultimate for us beauty lovers is that you can also shop Sephora and snap up some fabulous Kat Von D! You sign up for a shipping address and once you’ve registered you will be quoted shipping rates: USUnlocked package and ship. I haven’t signed up for it yet, so not sure what the fee involved is, but if you use this service, please let me know how you rate it. www.USUnlocked.com

I think you can still be charged customs if border control fancy it!
hi, I’ve been a member of Bongo.com which is the same thing. Its only worth it if the thing you are ordering can NEVER be found in the UK. I have some tips and tricks too. My last order had VAT/customs charges worth more than the actual order! so I’ve learnt from the experience.

there’s a shipping fee ready reckoner on the site which suggests that the minimum shipping fee to the UK is over $40. This seems steep but I suppose they have to make some money on it.
Do you mean there is a rumour Victoria Secret is coming to the uk ? Omg that would be brilliant,im a massive fan of there stuff.
$41 for 1 lb weight is supposed to be a low shipping fee??? They must be joking. How could that be worth it? I can get things from eBay easily and only pay $5-6 for a package.
Hey if you ever want something desperately, let me know. I am sure I would be able to get it for you, and I’ll charge exactly what shipping costs me 🙂
Happy to help a fellow beauty junkie.
I am far-ish from Nordies and Sephora but Old Navy/Gap/VS are close by.
Beauty Alchemist: Thank you so much – what a lovely offer! XX
There are other other companies that have cheaper shipping fees:
Always compare shipping rates to your country before you register with them 😉
