Please check all information about tracking your order here.

4. Duties & Taxes

If shipped to non-European Union countries, or a European non-EU member country, or territories with exception taxes context (for example the Canary Islands), orders can be randomly selected by customs and/or health authorities for inspection.

Duties are customer’s responsibility. If duties are applied to the order, the value of the import tax can be applied on the value of the products plus the cost of shipping.

In certain destinations (for example Cyprus) other taxes can be charged. These values are the customer's responsibility and must be confirmed by them, considering the value of the order and the type of product.

5. Customs Clearance in The Destination Country

All products available at Cosmetyque have commercialization authorization and consumption in Portugal.

It is the customer's responsibility to confirm if in their country there is any law to prevent the import and consumption of any product or substance contained in them.

In cases where there is forbidden entry of the products, various situations can occur:

  • When the product is returned automatically as soon as it arrives at the destination country's customs, because it had no authorization to enter, the return of the value of products will be done in a discount voucher, minus the value of transport costs and any taxes or customs costs associated with the return.

6. Delivery time

Cosmetyque ships worldwide from Portugal.

The delivery time after dispatch, depends on the destination country and the shipping method.

This period does not include the necessary customs clearance time when your order arrives in the country of destination (in the case of countries outside the European Union). Local customs have their own rules and procedures and unfortunately we have no power over them.

Carriers do not allow us to schedule a specific time for delivery of your order, so it is important to mention the correct delivery address open to reception during working hours, for example, your workplace.

Please note: We supply goods only in a quantity usual for household consumption. In specific cases (especially in the event of discounts or clearance sales), we are entitled to determine a maximum quantity that we can supply or adjust the handling, shipping and delivery time in order to guarantee a delivery without any issues.

For deliveries with no tracking or for orders with tracking but no delivery status update, if the destination postal services company informs the recipient that the order is lost, we offer a reshipping or a refund of the total amount of the order to the customer. 


7. Cancelation Policy

In case you want to cancel the order before it's dispatched from our warehouse, you can do it by contact immediately our Customer Care Service through our email or the contact form, indicating the number of your order and "Cancelation" on the subject.

If your order has already been shipped, we cannot guarantee that the cancellation will be possible.

When cancelation is not possible anymore, as an alternative you can refuse delivery or, if you accept it, you can return the order with expenses at your own cost. Be aware that the refuse and return of an order has returning costs associated. Our team will support you in this matter.

Cancellations by our resolutions can be processed:

  1. In cases of orders with strong evidence of fraud, Cosmetyque cancels and refunds the orders without any other justification, in order to protect all parties involved.
  2. In specific cases (especially in the event of discounts or clearance sales), when the quantity included in the order is very high and the order compromises our marketing campaign. We supply goods only in a quantity usual for household consumption.
  3. In rare cases of orders only with out of stock items. Cosmetyque cancels and refunds the order and notify the costumer.

8. Return Policy

Cosmetyque’s main goal is the customer’s complete satisfaction. 

Purchasing decisions are easy, quick and fully transparent. However, if a customer gives up on the purchase after delivery, the deadline for requesting the return and refund of a product unopened and unused is 14 days after receiving the order

Returns will not be accepted for product(s) that are not new, that are not properly closed or sealed, that do not have the original label, that have scratches on the packaging or on the label, that have visible external damage, that have the carrier's label affixed to the product and that have an expiry date of less than 30 days.

Important note: We don't work with exchanges, only returns.

It is very important that the customer:

  • Waits for our email with the return information and saves the product(s) under the same conditions that they were received (including the package and correspondent label) in order to return it;
  • Note that has a maximum period of 7 days after our validation for the return, to send the product(s) to our address accordingly with the instructions provided by our team.

Please check all information about our returns and refunds policy here.


9. Returned orders without order deivery

An order can return to our warehouse due to unknown recipient, wrong or incomplete address, unclaimed order, delivery refused, etc.

Once the order arrives at our facilities, as a solution, we can provide our customer the following possibilities:

  1. Paid reshipment of the order;
  2. Discount code in the order’s amount deducted of the shipping cost;
  3. Refund in the order’s amount deducted of the shipping cost.

    Returned Orders due to issues unrelated with the customer are reshipped with no extra cost or refunded totally, depending on the customer’s preference.

    Returned orders due to "unclaimed" reason, which means the recipient/someone was not available at the moment of the delivery attempt or, nobody collected the order on the pick up point/post office are solved with the issue of a discount code (the order’s amount deducted of the shipping cost).


    Return restrictions:

    Returns might not be possible in cases of countries where they depend/are just allowed by customs after the clearance procedure is complete which means the payment of the customs duties is made.

    In these cases, if an order has customs duties applied and customer refuses to pay them, customs don’t allow the return and the order has to be destroyed or abandoned.
    Cosmetyque doesn’t refund the costumer in these situations because the payment of the duties is an obligation of the costumer.


    10. Refunds

    Refunds can be made in the following situations:

    • Canceled orders (before shipment);
    • Orders returned by postal services (unclaimed or refused on delivery attempt);
    • Returns (returnable items);
    • Validated complaints of damaged, wrong, missing or expired products reported in a maximum of 14 days after order's delivery. Complaints of allergic reactions to a products as well as unsatifaction with the results of the application of a products are not elegible for refunds.

    Your refund will be processed within 7 business days.
