Refunds & Returns
REFUNDS & RETURNS
Our Returns Policy
Our Returns Policy forms part of, and must be read in conjunction with, our Terms and Conditions of Sale. We reserve the right to change this Returns Policy at any time. This Returns Policy was last updated on 01/12/21. It is important that you check your order or items upon receipt and always before use. If any errors occur or issues arise with your order, these need to be reported to us immediately so we can investigate.
Before attempting to return an order you will first need to contact our customer service team to request a returns authorisation number. This authorisation number will help us to identify, track and process your return. Without the authorisation number the return process may take longer.
It is important to note that any beauty gift boxes comprising of single products packed together will not be eligible for returns as the products included in the Boxes may have been removed from their original packaging for presentation purposes and inclusion in the Boxes. Due to health and safety reasons we are do not accept Boxes or the products included therein once they have been delivered.
