BeautySQ offers a convenient return policy to our customers because we want you to be completely satisfied with our goods and services.
We reserve the right to deny unfair returns and refunds for any reason. For example, these reasons may include returns: (i) for products not purchased directly from BeautySQ; (ii) for products used beyond a reasonable trial amount; (iii) for products purchased for the purpose of reselling; or (iv) from customers that return an unreasonable proportion of products purchased.

By ordering goods from BeautySQ, you hereby authorize Landmark Trade Services, an approved customs broker in CREDITS, to act as your agent, and to transact business with the CSBA to obtain release of your merchandise, account for duties and taxes, return merchandise to BeautySQ, and electronically submit refund claims on your behalf. Under the CREDITS program, you understand that the CSBA will send any refund of duties and taxes that were paid on the returned merchandise to the customs broker, and that you will obtain the refund directly from BeautySQ. Further, you also authorize the customs broker to forward any refund issued by the CSBA in your name, so that BeautySQ can be reimbursed.
2. PERSONAL USE; NOT FOR RESELLING
As a retailer, BeautySQ sells merchandise for personal use only. This means orders exceeding personal use quantities, reasonable seasonal gift giving quantities, and/or vendor quantity limits will be cancelled at our discretion.

Further, the consignee/buyer agrees that BeautySQ may delegate the obligation to import the goods on his behalf to a subcontractor (e.g. customs broker).
