Beauty Republic has the right to refuse repayment until the returned Product is received back or the Purchaser has submitted evidence that s/he has sent the Product back, depending on which takes place earlier.

If the Purchaser wants to avoid compensating for the decrease in the value of the Product, s/he must treat and use the Product only in the manner that would be generally allowed in a store, and the Product must be returned in its original packaging and in its entirety (all of the items included in the product packaging must be present along with any gifts added by Beauty Republic).

If the condition of the Product to be returned has deteriorated, the Purchaser is responsible for the decreased value of the Product due to its use only if the Product has been used in any other way than is necessary to verify its nature, qualities and functioning. To verify the object's nature, qualities and proper functioning, the Purchaser should treat and use the object only in the manner that would be generally allowed in a store.
