Price and Payment
The price of any Products or Services will be as quoted on our current Price List and Site, except in cases of obvious error. These prices include VAT where required. Delivery costs will be added to the total amount due once the Customer has selected the goods and a delivery service from the available options as set out in Delivery Information. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, by cheque (allowing time for clearance), by cash paid directly to our place of business (cash payments will not be accepted via post) or bank transfer. In the event of a dishonoured cheque, We reserve the right to charge the Customer to cover any consequential direct and indirect costs. Invoices may be produced at any reasonable time after goods are ready for collection and delivery. Time of payment shall be the essence of the Contract. We reserve the right to charge interest based on 3% above Barclays Bank Plc base rate from the date charges are due up to and including the date full payment is made (where a payment is late we will be guided by the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interests) Act 1998).
By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
Cosmedic Online contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will rectify any such errors as soon as possible once we become aware of them. If a Product’s correct price is different from the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
When ordering Products for delivery outside the UK, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary from country to country, so you should contact your local customs officer for further information before placing your order. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws. Please note that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Any samples supplied to Customers are supplied solely for information and in no way impart any express or implied conditions or warranty as to qualify, description, fitness for purpose or merchantable quality and the Customer shall be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to such matters prior to receiving the goods.
We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with the delivery option specified by you when you placed your order. It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that the delivery details are correct and that there will be someone there to receive delivery. Any specific delivery instructions will require confirmation at the time of placing an order. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. Deliveries will be made to your door. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of products ordered. Where an order is dispatched with more than one delivery, each delivery is considered a different Contract and will be dealt with individually and not as a whole in the case of any dispute or liability. In the event that the Customer fails or refuses to accept delivery of a Contract, We reserve the right to terminate the Contract and recover any costs from the Customer with regards delivery, disposal and any additional costs.
We offer free delivery on all orders in the UK over the value of £25.00. For orders below this value, there is a £2.95 postal charge and orders should be received within 2-5 working days.
For orders over the value of £50 or at our discretion, deliveries are made using a tracked service and require a signature on delivery.
Next day delivery is available at a cost of £7.95 per order and a signature is required on delivery.
Orders need to be received before 1pm to be processed on the same day otherwise they may be dealt with on the next working day. This includes orders scheduled for next day delivery. Orders made after 1pm on a Friday, during the weekend or on a Bank Holiday will be processed on the following working day.
Most orders are received within 48 hours if orders are placed before 1pm, not including Bank Holidays or weekends, however delivery may occur on a Saturday. Occasionally orders may take significantly more time to arrive due to circumstances beyond our control such as the Christmas holiday period. We are unable to investigate lost packages with Royal Mail until 15 working days have passed and so recommend checking with your local Royal Mail depot in the first instance. We also use other courier services and advise you to contact us after 10 days if you have not received your order.
Click and collect is available from our clinic during our normal opening hours. Please allow 24 hours after placing an order prior to collection. Our clinic address is Cosmedic Skin Clinic, Prospect House, 13 Albert Road, Tamworth, Staffordshire, B79 7JN.
In the event that an item is out of stock, we will contact you by email or other means to inform you within 5 working days. If the item will be in stock the next working day, we will post the order out the following day. If the item will take longer to arrive, we will post out the rest of the order and then post the missing item as back order as soon as it arrives. You are entitled to cancel your order prior to dispatch and receive a full refund.
We regret that we do not offer a delivery service outside of the UK at this time.
If your order requires a signature and there is no-one to sign for it then Royal Mail will leave a card and the package will be taken to the local collection depot. You can either arrange re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it yourself, however if it is not collected or re-delivered within 14 days, it will be returned to us. We will treat this as a cancelled order and refund your cost minus our postage and handling costs. We cannot be held responsible if you have not been notified of an attempted delivery and would recommend checking with your local Royal Mail collection depot if you feel you should have received your order.
If your order does not require a signature, Royal Mail may leave your parcel with a neighbour under its delivery to neighbour scheme (http://www.royalmail.com/personal/receiving-mail/delivery-to-neighbour).
We also use other courier services and if an item is undeliverable, re-delivery will be attempted in the first instance or if this is not possible the order will be either sent to a local collection depot or returned to Us.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the delivery address is correct at the time of ordering and we cannot be held accountable for lost or undeliverable items due to incorrect address details. Undeliverable items which include the correct address details will be treated as a cancelled order and we will refund your cost minus our postage and handling costs. We are unable to claim against a loss with Royal Mail in the event of an incorrect address and therefore cannot refund or replace your order in these circumstances.
Cosmedic Online cannot be held responsible for any losses as a result of failure to deliver, delays in delivery time, no-one present to accept delivery or incorrect delivery details. We will endeavour to ensure that orders are delivered within the time specified when ordering, however, time for delivery will not be enforceable in these Terms & Conditions and the Customer shall not try and do so by the service of any notice or legal action.
It is your legal right to cancel within 14 days of receiving your order. In the event of a cancellation, you must notify us by telephone (0845 388 3807) during our normal business hours or by email ([email protected]) and arrange return by a tracked delivery service with signature on receipt. We will only accept returns that are unopened, unused and undamaged and in a condition suitable for re-sale, returns postage is at your own cost and risk. It is your responsibility to ensure that return packaging is appropriate to prevent damage during transit. Returns must be received by us within 7 days. Refunds will be processed when the cancelled order has been received and the cost will only be refunded to the billing account used when placing the order and minus postage and handling costs.
The return address is Returns, Cosmedic Skin Clinic, Prospect House, 13 Albert Road, Tamworth, Staffordshire, B79 7JN.
It is your responsibility to inspect your order on delivery and notify us within 24 hours if any items are damaged or missing. Notification can be by telephone (0845 388 3807) during our normal working hours or via email ([email protected]). We reserve the right to offer a refund or replace the damaged/missing product in accordance with your legal rights. We will not refund or replace any item that has been used by you when the damage could reasonably be detected prior to opening. Any damaged Products must be retained by the Customer along with any packaging as they may be required for inspection by the courier, Supplier or/and by us.
Products that have been delivered incorrectly must be returned un-used and unopened in their original packaging (except to the extent reasonably necessary to examine them). Returns are only accepted if agreed by Us. Cosmedic Online will reimburse postage costs for incorrectly delivered items. Postage must be by a signed for tracked delivery.
Our policy on cancellations, returns and refunds does not affect your statutory legal rights.
Risk and Ownership
Once delivered, the Products ordered become the Customer’s responsibility and, except in relation to Products that are damaged or faulty or have been incorrectly delivered, We will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
Ownership of the Products will only pass to the Customer on delivery or collection of the Products and when We receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products including delivery charges where applicable. Until this time, the Customer is only acting as our fiduciary agent and shall not use, re-sell, purposely deface or damage or dispose of the Products, will take appropriate care and storage of the Products and will insure the Products against any losses or loss of value. If the Customer fails to comply with any of these conditions, full payment will become due with immediate effect. Any money or other gains the Customer has made, will be held by the Customer until such time they receive ownership of the Products or Services. If payment is not received by the due date, We reserve the right to request the immediate return of the Products or to enter the Customer’s premises or place of storage to take repossession.

Any advice offered regarding any Product or Service is offered on the basis of any information provided. Advice will be limited to what is the appropriate Product for the user.
