5 RESPONSIBILITY FOR USE OF PRODUCTS POLICY

(2) You should always use products only for the purposes for which they are intended, taking all care and precautions. Products should always be tested, used, stored and maintained in accordance with any applicable manufacturer’s guarantee, instructions, advice, guidance, licence and information. We will not be responsible for any damages or losses incurred because you fail to follow such guidance or to take appropriate action, precautions and care. 

6 CONSUMER CANCELLATIONS POLICY

(1) Consumers (defined in s2(3) of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 as individuals buying wholly or mainly outside their trade, business, craft or profession) who buy at a distance (such as from a website, by email or phone) have the right to change their mind and cancel some orders. If this applies to you, then once you have received your order from us, you can change your mind and return the item to us. We advise you to check whether these rights apply to you before placing your order. You can contact us by email using the details provided in the Seller’s Information section.  

(2) To return your order, please write to us by email at enquiries@crysallisskin.co.uk or by post to Frances Atherstone, 15 Bowden Row, Southcote Lane, Reading, Berkshire, England, RG30 3FJ within 14 days after the date you receive your order (or receive the last item in your order if it is delivered in separate packages). We will then help you with returns. However, once you have cancelled in writing, unless we have agreed to arrange collection, items can be returned to us at Frances Atherstone, 15 Bowden Row, Southcote Lane, Reading, Berkshire, England, RG30 3FJ. We always advise that you return products using a service which provides you with proof of sending. Unless your item is faulty (see our Returns and Refunds Policy at section 7), then you are responsible for the costs of returning the items to us. 

(3) The law says you can lose your right to cancel some products, such as where you:

  • unseal goods that are not suitable for return if they are unsealed, due to health protection or hygiene reasons, such as earrings.
  • combine goods with other goods after delivery so that they become inseparable. 

(4) The law allows us to make a deduction from your refund if you handle the products more than is reasonably necessary (i.e. more than you would handle them in a shop). 

(5) Unless you have lost the right to cancel, when you cancel an order for any product, we will refund the amount you paid for the products and the standard (basic) delivery costs (the cheapest option available). So, for example, if you have chosen any express or next day delivery options you will only be reimbursed the amount of our standard delivery costs. 

(6) Where you are cancelling an order for products then we will refund you within 14 days of:

  •  the date we receive the products
  •  when you provide us with proof of sending products back to us 

whichever is sooner. Refunds are made using the same payment method that you used to pay us, and with some payment methods refunds may take up to 7 days to reach your account. 

7 RETURNS AND REFUNDS POLICY – For faulty or damaged Products 

(1) We hope that your item reaches you in perfect condition but if you do not receive your order or you receive damaged or faulty items, or a product subsequently develops a fault please write to us by email at enquiries@crysallisskin.co.uk or by post to Frances Atherstone, 15 Bowden Row, Southcote Lane, Reading, Berkshire, England, RG30 3FJ.

(3) Where you have returned a faulty item to us then, once we have checked/tested the product, we will either offer you a replacement (if we are able to do this) or refund. 

(4) We will not usually consider products to be faulty if the fault arises due to: 

(a) abnormal use or working conditions, failure to follow instructions or guidance, misuse, alteration or unauthorised repair, wilful damage, improper maintenance or negligence on the part of any buyer, user or third party; or 

(b) any subsequent mechanical, chemical, electrolytic or other damage, after delivery (when risk has passed to you), which is not due to a defect in the products.

(5) Non-receipt – If you do not receive your order then we will offer you the choice or a replacement or a refund. 

(6) Refunds – (a) Refunds are made within 14 days of receipt of the faulty item by us. We will refund you the cost of the faulty item, the amount you paid for delivery to you and the reasonable or agreed amount that you paid to return it to us.

However, despatch and delivery times are only estimated, and we are not responsible for late delivery or unavailability of products. 

(4) If we are unable to dispatch the exact product you have ordered then, at our discretion, we will either refund the price paid for that item or will email you to offer you an alternative item. 

(5) You are responsible for taking delivery of products and if you are unable to take delivery of products, then we will arrange one redelivery. Products are your responsibility on delivery. 

(6) (a) Some deliveries may require a signature on receipt (usually by someone aged 18 or over). Your signature, or that of someone on your behalf, confirms receipt of the products but also the state of the package received. 

(b) When you receive your order, it is your responsibility to carefully examine both the package (before it is opened) and the products for any damage. If a package shows any signs of damage before it is opened, we ask that you please sign for the parcel, ‘Received Damaged’.
