Returns should be made within 28 days of purchase. Please send an email to email@example.com with the subject ‘Return request - order number’ (the order number is shown on the delivery note), including details of the items you wish to return, together with a reason for their return. Outside of the 28 day returns period, we can only accept items where there is a mechanical fault, i.e.: if a mascara wand should break or work itself loose.
When a return request is received we will then send you a return code that should be clearly written on the outside of the box/packet you return the faulty goods in.
Returns should be sent to the following address:
alva Natural Cosmetics
c/o ONEbeauty Ltd.
PO Box 2818
Please remember to include a copy of your delivery note.
We recommend you use Royal Mail Recorded Delivery to ensure the products reach us as replacements can only be sent or refunds given when the faulty or unsuitable goods have been received.
If your order included a free gift, for your return and refund to be processed the free gift needs to be returned too.
We offer a ‘no quibble’ money-back guarantee.
In the unlikely event that there's a picking error and you receive a product you did not order, or the product/products were delivered damaged or prove to be faulty in any way, providing the above steps are followed we will refund you the purchase price and the cost of returning the product/products.
When using any new cosmetic product for the first time, we recommend you do a patch test to assess suitability and skin compatibility.
