Making a Return
If you want to return a product to us for refund or exchange, you can do so through Australia Post or International Post. Simply put it in a box suitable for mail or courier transport.
For returns, use this address:
Christian Acuña Skincare
PO Box 1496
1355 Bondi Junction
You may take Australia Post returns to a post office or mail them directly to the above address.
christianacuna.com can process a refund whether you are in Australia or overseas. We will:
credit your original method of payment or provide a Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate which can be redeemed on any future christianacuna.com purchase and is valid for 12 months.
The amount refunded will depend on the reason for the return. If you have received:
a damaged product or the wrong product, we will be happy to refund both the product and postage and handling fee.
If you have suffered a reaction to any of the ingredients please state the nature of your reaction and include this note when you return your product. CA is a highly concentrated skin care; redness and minor irritation of the skin may occur. A light natural peeling is expected upon commencing use of some of the products. Those symptoms are perfectly normal and will disappear within three days consecutive use of the product. We will need you to use the product for seven uninterrupted days before stopping the treatment due to excessive irritation or peeling unless of course your reaction exceeds redness, minor irritation and a light natural peeling. In the highly unlikely case of a severe reaction, cease use immediately.
To complete an exchange, include the name, variety and cost of the new product you require in a note you include with the returned product. If there is a difference in the price of the products involved in the exchange, please tell us how we should refund or charge you.
Returns and Exchanges
If you return goods via an Australia Post Office, please keep the appropriate proof of return. Otherwise, if the returned item goes missing in transit to us, we will deem you not to have returned the item.
It is your responsibility to ensure the goods are adequately packaged to ensure that they are not damaged during return transit.
Except where required by law, all returned products must be:
1. Unused, unopened and in original condition
3. Returned within 30 days of delivery
4. In a saleable condition upon return
In the event of a return by you or the recipient of a gift, we will exchange or refund in the form of a Christian Acuña Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate. However, you will pay the postage and handling fee of the return to christianacuna.com and re-delivery to you. We will not refund the initial postage and handling fee, gift wrapping, and other fees.
Goods purchased between 20 November and 25 December inclusive can be returned until 31 January of the following year.
Products that were purchased in conjunction with a promotion and were subsequently delivered with a Free Gift, must be returned with that Free Gift to receive a full refund for the original item purchased. If the original item is returned without the Free Gift, the value of the gift will be charged to the purchaser via the original payment method.
All prices by default are shown in Australian dollars ($AUD) and include GST (Goods and Services Tax), at the rate of 10%. GST is not payable for international orders and the prices will be adjusted on the payment page for these orders. Users who change the default currency using the provided currency selector, will be able to pay using their own currency, however please note that when the credit card company processes the transactions which can be a couple of days later, the exchange rate at that time will apply, which may be different to the rate that was shown at time of purchase.
Goods Damaged or Faulty on Delivery
Except where required by law, you must return damaged goods within 14 days of receipt. If a product is later deemed to be faulty, normal warranty conditions for that product apply.
In the event that you receive a defective or damaged product, we will refund the original product price, postage and handling fee, gift-wrapping and other fees via the original method of payment. Alternatively, if you request a replacement, we will despatch your replacement item (subject to availability) once we receive the return, at our cost.
Please note that all products that are found to be non-defective will incur the postage and handling fee of returning the item to the address for returns specified under Making a Return, above.
Returns and Refunds of items paid for by Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates
For gifts purchased using a christianacuna.com or third party Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate (or any part thereof), the amount paid by Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates will be refunded in the form of a Christian Acuña Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate, and the remaining amount will be refunded via the original method of payment.
Please note: all products that are found to be non-defective will incur the delivery costs of returning the item to us.
Please allow up to 14 days for refunds to be processed upon our receipt of goods.
Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates
Please ensure all Christian Acuña Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates are redeemed at the time of ordering. Once the order has been submitted and paid for by means other than a voucher, we are unable to retrospectively redeem a Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate to offset that cost.
All Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates are issued with no expiry date as indicated on the voucher itself. Once that Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate is issued, we will do our best to provide you with the products shown on the voucher as soon as this is presented to us.
Christian Acuña Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates may not be used to purchase other Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates.
There is a difference between a “Purchased” Voucher and a “Promotional” Voucher. A Promotional Voucher is one received as part of a competition, incentive or offer. A Purchased Gift Voucher / Gift Certificate is one that is not associated with any promotion, incentive or offer and the complete cost has been paid for by the customer.
Please note: Promotional Gift Vouchers / Gift Certificates can only be redeemed one at a time. For example, if you have two Promotional Vouchers, you must complete your purchase using one, then begin a new purchase to use the second.
The same applies, no matter how many Promotional Vouchers you have received. You are still able to “top up” any short fall by using your credit card.
