Keen to try Zao makeup but not sure which sure which shade is right for your skin? We get that, it's hard to buy make-up online - ah one day we will fulfil the dream of a physical store - until then we're offering you testers so that you can try out Zao's products for a fraction of the price before committing to the product.
All testers are £3.99 plus postage.
We do not hold stock of testers, they are ordered in in the same way as pre-order products. You can read more abut pre-orders here. We order our pre-order stock every week- ten days.
How does it work?
Please go through and place an order for the number of products that you would like to try. For example if you would like a tester of the compact foundation and the concealer place an order for two items. Then send us an email at email@example.com with the details of the product and shade that you want to try.
We are working on adding a notes section to the cart page on the site that you can do everything within the store. Bear with us for a couple of weeks on this.
NOTE* the Zao testers do come in plastic. We work with Zao as although not plastic free there products reduce plastic waste by 90%. Zao are also working on their packaging being plastic free by 2019.
All online orders placed by 13:00 (GMT) Monday to Friday will be shipped within 24 hours. Orders placed over the weekend will be shipped on Mondays.
Currently Acala uses different Royal Mail services to ship orders: Standard or Expedited for UK mainland and Standard or Tracked for overseas. For any queries about the delivery status of your order, delays or returns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Acala is continuously striving to reduce it’s carbon footprint and as the business grows, and order sizes reach the amount needed to make the use of a green courier service viable, we will make the switch.
Planet-friendly packaging: we wrap all orders by hand in our east London studio using recycled paper, biodegradable cornstarch chips and card, held together with natural tape, made in the UK. You will receive your Acala order in the most minimal packaging possible to keep your order safe in transit.

***Please note that Royal Mail 24 is not a guaranteed 24 hour delivery service and during peak times it can take longer for Royal Mail to process packages through their network.
Please note that in the pre-Christmas rush we are seeing a slower processing of packages through Royal Mails network which is leading to longer than average delivery times. This is something that we cannot control but we would advise customers to purchase in advance of needing a product to avoid delays.***
