Products


Q. Are all your products fresh and genuine?

A. Definitely, 100%. We never sell anything other than genuine brand items on our website.

Our products are sourced from around the world, so a small number of the products sold on our website may look slightly different from what you have at home, but the products are still 100% genuine and produced by the original manufacturer for that particular brand. For example, a product sold in the US may differ in appearance from the same product sold in France or Japan, but the product is still genuine.

Freshness is also 100% guaranteed as we keep all our stock in a temperature controlled environment prior to shipping and subject to regular quality control checks.

All of which can testify to the quality of the products received by our customers.

 

Q. Do you provide samples?

We provide free samples when they are available, but we can't guarantee they will be included with all orders.

 

Q. Would you be able to find something not listed on your website?

A. Quite possibly. We have an extensive global supplier network which ensures our product range is the largest anywhere on the internet so we just might be able to find what you're looking for, even if it's been discontinued in your country. If you have ordered an item before but don't see it listed anymore, it is most likely just sold out. We are normally able to replenish stock within a week so keep checking regularly. Unfortunately we are unable to notify individual customers when stock arrives or when the next shipment is coming in, so please keep checking the website for the latest stock update.

 

Q. I have x type skin, with y characteristics and z problems. What type of product would suit me best?

A. Our specialty is sourcing all major brands from around the world, offering a great loyalty programme and significant special offers. To be able to do this we operate on a very tight cost budget and do not employ the skin or color specialists, nor the technology to answer this type of question comprehensively. Rather than try and just give you an answer, we would rather be honest and suggest you obtain these answers elsewhere, from the brands or specialist sites, and then use us to repeat purchase at the best price.

 

 

Privacy & Security


Q. Are my details secure?

A. Yes! All the information we ask for when you place your order is essential for us to process your order and keep you up to date on the latest offers available from CosmoStore.org. We use the latest SSL encryption (128 bit) technology to ensure all your details are kept secure. We do not sell, rent or otherwise pass on any of your details to other parties. Ever.

 

Shipping and Delivery


Q. What are the shipping costs?

A. Shipping is FREE on your first order, with no minimum spend. 

For subsequent orders, shipping is FREE.

Courier and express shipping rates will be calculated at checkout.

Some products, like fragrances and haircare, require special handling due to their flammable nature and heavy weight. A small charge may be applied when your order contains fragrances or haircare. Read more

Q. How long will it take to get my order?

Once we have received your payment, your order will usually be dispatched within 24 hours and you will receive an email confirmation once it ships. You can also check your order status through our website at any time.

Prices for delivery.

Standard Shipping

For Standard Shipping (Signature) deliveries, you can expect to receive your order within 4-6 days to major cities and up to 10-14 days for more remote areas. Your order can be tracked through our tracking system and a signature is required for delivery. We suggest having your parcel shipped to your workplace if no one is home during the day to sign for your delivery.

If you have not received your order after 14 business days please contact us.

For Standard Shipping (No Signature) deliveries, most customers will receive their order in 10-14 days, however it may take 14-21 days for more remote destinations. A signature is not required for delivery and tracking is not available. Orders to military addresses or PO boxes must be sent via Standard Shipping (No Signature).

We generally recommend you send your order via Standard Shipping (Signature) option.


Express Shipping

Most delivery delays are due to unavoidable customs checks or because no one is home to sign for the delivery. We will refund the extra charge for orders held in customs, but not for delays due to lack of a signature.

Express Shipping orders are delivered anywhere in the world within 2-3 days. This excludes any time required for customs clearance, which is out of our control. Fragrance or home scent orders cannot be sent via express shipping.

A. After placing your order, an e-mail confirmation will automatically be sent to you with your unique order number.

Q. How can I track my order?

A. If your order was shipped by Express Post then you can track your order through https://www.speedpost.hk/speedpost/sections/mailTracking/mailTracking.jsf.

You can also use your own country's postal service's website if they have an EMS tracking option available online.

For registered airmail, only limited tracking is available and only after a certain period of time from the date of dispatch, normally 10 working days.

Please note no tracking is available for non-registered airmail.

 

Q. Do you ship to my country?

A. Yes. We ship to anywhere on the planet that receives regular postal services.
(Please note that we're currently unable to ship to addresses in France, Italy, Monaco, Turkey and Germany.)

 

Q. Do you ship to PO Boxes/APO/FPO Addresses?

A. Yes, we ship to valid PO Box and military addresses. However, we only ship by non registered post to such addresses as this is the only method that does not require a signature on receipt. Please note if you choose this option, which we don't recommend, you are accepting liability for non delivery for whatever reason. Non registered post cannot be tracked.

 

Q. Will there be any taxes/customs duties?

A. It depends on the destination.

We ship to over 200 countries worldwide.

Unfortunately, we do not reimburse the cost of taxes.

 

Q. Why is there a surcharge for fragrance-only orders?

This is because they are classified as 'dangerous goods' by International Air Regulations and require special handling. The surcharge is 10% of the 'Item Total' on fragrance-only orders, with maximum charge of no more than 15$US.

To waive this surcharge, add any non-fragrance item to your order.

Returns


Q. What happens if I'm not happy with the product I receive?

A. Any problems with items you receive must be reported to us within 30 days of receipt. We guarantee money back refund without question if you are dissatisfied in any way. Items must be returned in the original condition in which they were received.

Our site is aimed at customers who have already purchased and experienced the product, either its use in the case of skincare, or smell in terms of perfume, or color in terms of make up. If you have ordered the wrong product, then you can still return for a full refund but please note that the items must be unopened and unused.

If there is any defect in the product on receipt then it may be returned to us for a refund at that time.

Please contact our orders department at [email protected] before returning anything so we can inform you where to send and how to arrange the refund.

Returned items will be refunded using the same method used to make payment for the order. Return postage will be reimbursed in case of damaged, defective or incorrectly sent items and will be credited using the same method used to pay for the order, or through store credit in special circumstances.

Important note on returning fragrances and home scents:

Please check your fragrance or home scent orders carefully, as fragrances and home scents can NOT be returned under any circumstances due to international aviation restrictions.
