4. RETURN POLICY
According to article 16 of the Emergency Ordinance no. 34/2014 regarding the rights of consumers within the contracts concluded with professionals, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for orders referring to:
- supply of goods that have been unsealed after delivery, which can no longer be returned for hygiene or health protection reasons;
Therefore, the buyer should be aware that he will not be able to rely on his legal right of withdrawal for unsealed products, as they could present risks for reasons of hygiene or health protection for consumers (eg skin / hair care, makeup, etc.) and Girls Own Cosmetics cannot resell them.
Thus, only those products that are exactly in the form in which they were delivered, accompanied by the invoice, are accepted for return.
We do not accept returns for:
- Products which have been opened
- Products which have been used/tested
- Products which do not have intact labels or have their seals teared/smudged
- Products acquired from different shops
- Products which are not accompanied by a purchase proof (invoice)
- Products with any type of damage to their packaging
These measures are specific to cosmetic products because their shelf life is calculated starting with the first opening of the package. Moreover, for tested or used products there is the risk of transmission of bacteria by transferring the product to another person.
If the product complies to the conditions above, please contact the Customer Relations department at [email protected] stating your wish to return it, and you will be contacted by an operator to indicate the next steps.
The products must be returned in their original packaging, with the invoice attached and they should be in the exact same state in which they were received by the customer. The customer is in charge of shipping taxes, which should be paid in advanced. If you have received a damaged product or a different product than the one you ordered, in this case Girls Own Cosmetics will be in charge of shipping taxes. We reserve the right to refuse the return only after the products have been verified and do not meet our return conditions, in which case the customer will be in charge of shipping fees.If the return is solved with a refund, it will be made by bank transfer to the account indicated by the customer in the return request, within 10 days from the receipt of the products.We do not accept packages with repayment or whose sender cannot be identified. We do not take responsibility for returned parcels who are damaged on dispatch or during transport. We do not pick up packages from the Romanian Post Office or any other post office.
