9.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund.
9.2 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products in the following circumstances:
(a) where by reason of their nature (and the manner in which you have taken care of them) the Product(s) cannot be returned (for example, without limitation, any cosmetics which have been unpackaged and treated in any way that renders it no longer marketable to other customers due to health & safety or hygiene reasons); and/or
(b) where the Product(s) have been customised to your chosen specifications.
9.3 When returning items you are strongly recommended to carefully pack the items and obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit.
9.4 If you cancel your contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note:
(i) we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop; and (ii) when returning Products on which you have received any promotional or other discount the refund will only cover the price you paid.
(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if you have received the product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.
(ii) if you have not received the product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the contract.
Please note that it can take up to 10 days for us to receive your return, depending on which postal service you use. Refunds are usually processed on the day of receipt, although it may take up to a further week for the amount to show in your account.
(d) Refunds in relation to Products may only be credited to the credit or debit card or PayPal account originally used to make the purchase. If we are unable to put the refund through on this card or account for any reason, we will try to contact you to discuss alternative arrangements. If you used vouchers to pay for the product we may refund you in vouchers.
9.5 If a product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your contract:
(a) then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the contract. If you do not return the Products within 14 days of your cancellation, you will be deemed to have accepted the Products, at which point a new purchase contract will be made and you will be charged for your order at the price set out on the Site;
(b) subject to clause 11.7 (c) below, unless the product is faulty or not as described you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us. If the product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection (which will not be materially inconsistent with the sums we charged you for delivery);
(c) If you have returned the products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
9.6 As you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause or anything else in these Terms.
