Ordering with us

When you place an order, you should receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. We then carry out a standard pre-authorisation check to make sure there’s enough money on the card. We only accept your order once payment has been approved and we have debited the payment card (and then the contract is made based on these terms). Due to hygiene reasons we are unable to offer any refunds. If you need to cancel your order this must be cancelled before your items have been shipped. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Don’t worry, if there’s an issue with an order, we’ll get in touch with you.

Very occasionally, we may need to refuse or cancel an order or close or freeze an account (even if we have previously confirmed your order) – e.g. if we think there’s something dodgy going on with an order or an account. If this happens to you and you think we’ve made a mistake, please don’t take offence – get in touch with us at admin@beautycityinternational.com and one of the team will be happy to speak to you about it.

Prices and product descriptions

There’s a lot going on here at Beauty City International HO and from time to time we may price up or describe a product or promo wrongly. If we discover an error for any goods you’ve ordered, we will tell you ASAP and give you the option of reconfirming your order (at the correct price) or cancelling it. If we can’t get in touch with you, we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you’ve already paid, we will refund you in full. Prices include VAT (where applicable). Depending on the value of your order or the delivery option or address you choose, delivery costs will be charged for. Such additional charges will be clearly shown during the checkout process and included in the 'Total Cost'.

Delivery terms and schedules

Before you finalise your order, you’ll be given various delivery options to choose from with estimated delivery time and dates depending on the delivery address. We try to meet all delivery times but sometimes there may be delays – e.g. because of postal/carrier delays, logistics or bad weather. We will keep you updated as much as we can, and you should be able to track your parcel’s progress. Gin touch with Customer Service if you have any issues or questions.

Returns and refunds

Some items can’t be returned for a refund e.g. Skincare, cosmetics, earrings, items where a hygiene strip or seal has been removed (like swim wear and underwear). This doesn’t affect your statutory rights. If you receive your item damaged, please get in touch with us within 24 hours of your item being received. If you are sending a product back to us for any reason (we strongly recommend that you get proof of postage)

Promotional Codes

From time to time, we may give you Promotional Codes that you can use to reduce the price of specified products. Remember, it’s up to you to enter the code at checkout! Here are some key things to remember: Each Promo Code has its own terms, which will be made clear at the time it’s issued to you (e.g. what products, single/multiple use, when it can be used etc). If you’re given a unique Promotional Code that is meant just for you (e.g. a student Promotional Code) please keep it secret and don’t let anyone else use it or abuse it (e.g. don’t post it on social media). If we think there is or has been misuse of a Promotional Code in any way (e.g. selling it or sharing it with others), we can cancel your Promotional Code and/or suspend or even close your account without telling you. We don’t like to do this, but if a Promotional Code can’t run properly because someone or something is spoiling the fun for everyone – e.g. fraud, tampering, technical errors or anything else that is beyond our control that affects the running or fairness of the Promotional Code – we can cancel, modify or suspend the Promotional Code.
