Any update/confirmations on this? Do you get whacked with import tax if you order the regimen from amazon US to the UK?
It's infuriating that we get ripped off so badly by the government for a product we need for medical reasons.
Is this true??
I have just been onto the amazon website and replicated my order of 4 x 16z treatment. the order i placed on this website totally $177.12 including shipping whereas on amazon it totaled $144.82! WHY OH WHY is the price on amazon cheaper than off here???
If the there is no import duty charged either then this must be amazing news for us long termers!
seriously tho, WTF.
Bought the regimen kit (8 oz. Cleanser, 8 oz. Treatment, 8 oz. Moisturizer) through Amazon USA. Ordered 30th April 2012. Product cost $38.44, shipping was $18.50. It arrived attached to an unrelated UK Amazon order (by an elastic band) on 9th May 2012. The delivery estimate according to Amazon was May 15, 2012 - May 31, 2012, so it got it considerably earlier. But I do roughly remember during the order process somewhere that it said 10 days, from the order date, so not sure where that changed... But no customs charges. No problems. Total I paid there is £36.40 for all the kit and delivery...
Do we think I got lucky with the customs charges or am I safe to do this again when I need more product?
I did get kind of worried about when I was going to get it because I wanted to start ASAP, and couldn't wait until the end of May. Also, the custom charges could have screwed me over so I wanted to see what it would be like to just order one 8oz treatment through the website (through cheapest postage option). I ordered on 7th May and got shipping confirmation on 8th May so I will wait and see how long it takes.
Sorry I haven't been keeping up to date on my topic, for me, ordering from amazon.com, for acne.org products always works out cheaper, slightly, and it comes faster, also, it has always avoided customs, where as when I order from danialkern,org, I always get customs duty, I'm surprised to see that:
Just ordered the 16oz Mositeriser from Amazon USA (as advised see above) and got wacked with a £11 import duty fee! Thanks mate! So don't bother with taking the risk as the Moisteriser was just £1 over the £15 limit - so this really cost me £31! Not worth it and I will stick with using my usual UK moisteriser (Simple brand). Here's a tip if buying - only get the 8oz supplies especially the BP as if you get the 16oz you will def get an import tax demand.
For now on, I just purchase the 8oz BP directly from Dan's website and not any larger amounts. BTW: the 16oz cleanser passes the import duties no problems as it is below the £15 threshold - however I too just stick with my usual Simple products for the cleanser bit
Has got smacked with customs duties, basically what I'm trying to say is, if your here in the UK, try using amazon.com, your much less likely to get charged customs duties, don't ask me why, I might be wrong and I might just be lucky, but, it's your best bet, also, i guess using amazon gives a little more peace of mind, don't mean that in a bad way dan!
Good luck people!
