Cosmetics4u Returns Policy

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive which can be found at
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund (Excluding Gift Cards, Pierced Jewellery and Underwear). We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

We want our customers to be happy with their purchases and aim to be fair and accommodating with regards to returns. But some items are non refundable (unless faulty) and these are listed below:
  • For hygiene reasons, all cosmetics and grooming products that have been opened or used, certain jewellery, (for example pierced earrings & body jewellery), Perfumes and Aftershaves that have been opened or used 
  • Due to hygiene, Contact Lenses, Wigs, Stockings & Tights, Teeth, Eyelashes, Underwear & Cosmetics and Makeup.
  • Gift Cards and Vouchers cannot be returned, or exchanged for cash

We do not refund the original cost of post and packing if goods are returned as unsuitable.

Goods must be returned within 30 days in the original packaging unopened refunds will only be given if this is the case.

Before returning any item(s) please call us Monday to Saturday 9.00am to 5.30pm on 01685 721000 to obtain a GOODS RETURNS NUMBER for returning the item(s).
The GRN must be included with the returned item; without this, we will not be able to process the return. You will be asked if you prefer a refund or an exchange. In addition to this, you will also be asked to confirm your order number, name & address, so please have these ready.
