Terms & Conditions
Welcome to our website – www.adorncosmetics.com.au
This document contains the terms and conditions that govern your use of this website, including your rights and responsibilities (‘Terms & Conditions’). Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully. Your use of this website constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by the Terms & Conditions. If you do not agree with any of these Terms & Conditions, please cease using this website.
This site is owned and operated by Adorn Mineral Cosmetics Pty Ltd, ACN 136 976 979 (referred to below as ‘Adorn Cosmetics’, ‘Adorn’, ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ or ‘it’).
We reserve the right to amend these Terms & Conditions from time-to-time to account for changes in technology, applicable laws and our business operations. As such, if you are or intend to be a returning customer, you should check these Terms & Conditions from time-to-time for such changes.
Placing an order with Adorn Cosmetics means that you have read and accepted these Terms & Conditions and that you have accepted our Shipping & Delivery Terms, which can be viewed here.
All orders (both local & international) are sent with Australia Post and are therefore bound by Australia Post's delivery terms and times. You can view these by visiting www.auspost.com.au.
We aim to dispatch orders placed before 11am AEDT Monday - Friday on the same day. Orders placed after 11am AEDT will be processed the next business day.
Orders are not processed or dispatched on weekends or Australian public holidays.
Delivery times exclude the dispatch day.
Once your order has been dispatched you will receive tracking notifications. This information can also be found in your 'My Account' section of the Adorn website.
Delivery or tracking enquiries are your responsibility, as the customer, and can be made at www.auspost.com.au by quoting your tracking number.
1. Property in the products purchased from us passes to you, as the customer, upon dispatch of your order by us. This means that the products are at your risk from the time of dispatch, whether delivery has been made to you or not. You agree that this clause amounts to an agreement varying the otherwise assumed position set out in section 25 of the Goods Act 1958 (VIC).
2. Adorn takes no responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged parcels. In the rare event that an item is lost, stolen or damaged, for privacy reasons enforced through Australia Post, it is your responsibility as the customer to report and resolve the issue with Australia Post directly.
3. We will instruct Australia Post to leave the order at the address advised by you at the time of purchase. You must ensure that you are able to take delivery of the products without undue delay and at any time reasonably specified by us. Australia Post may contact you via SMS prior to delivery to provide you with different delivery options, including giving ‘authority to leave’ the item at the address, or have delivery re-routed to a collection point. Alternatively, Australia Post may leave a card requesting your instructions on either re-delivery or collection from the carrier or a collection point.
4. Further to paragraph 1 above, Adorn Cosmetics is not responsible for products that have spoiled due to weather conditions during delivery transit. It is advised that you have your parcels delivered to a cool, dry and weather safe address. Please also ensure your letterbox is large enough to fit parcels, otherwise you will likely receive a delivery card as stated in paragraph 3 above.
5. We will endeavour to make sure that the products listed on our website correctly show stock availability and that pricing is true and correct. In the unlikely event that an ordered item isn’t available, or we are unable to fulfil your order, we will notify you within 24 hours to arrange a backorder or a full refund for that product.
6. Where a parcel is returned to us because of incorrect or incomplete address details there will be an additional handling and postage charge of $10 to resend your parcel. It is your responsibility as our customer to ensure the delivery address provided to us is correct. Adorn does not accept responsibility for incorrect address details, unless the address noted on the parcel does not match the address you provided to us at the time of ordering.
7. All orders placed must be submitted in English only.
8. Customs Fees: Some countries (UK, the E.U., and Canada in particular) charge Customs fees or import duties on merchandise ordered from overseas. Please be aware that these charges are your responsibility as the customer and are beyond our control. We advise that you contact the relevant government body in your country (e.g. Customs & Excise) for information on what these charges might be. By law, we have to declare the status (i.e. "merchandise" or "gift") and the value of each parcel accurately. It is a criminal offence for us to make a false Customs declaration, and we are unable to misrepresent your products for the reduction of import duties/tax fees.
Adorn Cosmetics is committed to providing both eco-luxe, non-toxic beauty products and extremely supportive online customer service to our customers. Our commitment to the ongoing research and development of cutting-edge products that contain the very best ingredients nature has to offer, enables us to support our customers with a product guarantee that is built on trust and goodwill. In keeping with that spirit, this is our policy for returning products:
1. Our comprehensive range of sample products provides our customers the opportunity to try the Adorn range before committing to purchasing full-size products. For this reason and due to health regulations refunds and exchanges are NOT given for incorrect colour or product choice.
2. Refunds are NOT given on sample products.
3. In the rare instance that an Adorn product purchased from our online store is found to be defective, we will accept return of the product for a refund/credit provided you contact us in writing within 30 days of the purchase date to notify us of the defect. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org providing details of the defect, proof of purchase and a copy of your order information. Customer Service will then happily email you instructions on how to return the item. Please note that we do not accept returns for products that have been more than half used, in any circumstances. Adorn Cosmetics reserves the right to refuse to exchange or refund/credit any requests.
4. The cost of returns is your responsibility as the customer. We recommend returning your item using registered post with a tracking number, as we accept no liability for returns not received by us. If an item is deemed faulty this postage will be refunded to the customer.
5. Products purchased from an Adorn Stockist are bound by the terms and conditions of that Stockist. It is your responsibility as the customer to be aware of and understand the return policy of the Stockist from which you made an Adorn purchase, as these terms may vary. It is also your responsibility as the customer to notify the Stockist from where the Adorn product was purchased of any issues you may have.
6. Adorn takes no responsibility for products that have spoiled due to a customer not complying with the recommended hygiene & cleaning practices, which can be found in the ‘How to Use’ section for each relevant product page on this website.
CHANGE OF MIND
Exchanges or refunds for change of mind are not offered.
Our order process is automated to distribute products quickly and accurately. Cancellation or modification requests must be received within 1 hour of placing your order. Cancellations or modifications made after 1 hour of placing an order cannot be processed, and as such are ineligible for a refund.

International delivery times will vary from country to country and take approximately 6+ business days. Once dispatched, your order is bound by the terms and conditions of Australia Post and any order tracking enquiries need to be made directly to them.
