 Lost or Damaged Domestic Packages


If your package is lost or damaged, please contact us so we can open an investigation and file a claim with USPS. The USPS policy for lost packages states that we must wait a 15 day period before filing the investigation because most times a package is delayed within the postal system, but not lost. If a package arrives damaged, we can file immediately.

USPS limits the claim period to 60 days from the time of shipping. If you contact us after this period expires, we cannot issue any refunds for lost or damaged packages because a claim can no longer be filed. However we will always issue a refund for packages returned to our office (minus the shipping costs), even if this 60 day period expires. Domestic returns can take several weeks to be sent back to sender.

Packages that are stolen (marked as delivered) are not eligible for refunds or replacements. We cannot take any responsibility for these situations as once a package leaves our facility, it is out of our control.

International Shipping Policy on Customs Fees, Shipping Time Frames, & Lost or Damaged Packages


Please read the following very carefully as all international orders will be binded to this policy & procedure. Please note that the majority of international orders are delivered without any issue, however a small percentage of orders can have issues while in transit. The majority of transit issues happen once a package reaches its destination country.



Customs Fees, Taxes, & Duties

International packages can be subject to customs inspections. All applicable customs fees, taxes and duties are the sole responsibility of the customer. Luminosity Acne Skincare will not reimburse you for these fees. Customs authorities require that we state the value of your order directly on your package – the value is the retail cost. Luminosity Acne Skincare cannot mark any package(s) as a “Gift” in order to avoid customs and duties fees. It is a federal violation to falsely mark commercial packages as gifts or to claim a lower value of goods therefor we cannot accommodate these types of requests. For more information on customs and duties charges, please contact your local customs office.

 

Shipping Time Frames

Shipping time frames are estimates. We always ship out your order within a timely manner (typically 1-2 business days), however once a package leaves our facility it is no longer within our control therefore we cannot guarantee that a package will arrive within an estimated time frame. The majority of packages arrive within the expected time frame, however occasionally a package can be delayed. Most delays happen once the package reaches its destination country and is within that country's postal service (this is verified through tracking).

Lost or Damaged Packages


Most international orders have 2 shipping options: Priority Mail International or First Class Mail International. These options are very different from each other so please choose wisely.

>> Priority Mail International are eligible for insurance claims valued up to $200 only. Package must be lost or damaged to be eligible. Claims cannot be made for packages which are delayed, marked as delivered, stolen, or sent back to us for any reason including but not limited to: unpaid customs fees, undeliverable address, delivery attempt failures, etc.

If your package is lost or damaged, please contact us IMMEDIATELY so we can file a claim with USPS. USPS limits the claim period to 60 days from the time of shipping. If you contact us after this period expires, we cannot issue any refunds for lost or damaged packages because a claim can no longer be filed. However we will always issue a refund for packages returned to our office (minus the shipping costs), even if this 60 day period expires. International returns can take as long as 3+ months to be returned back to sender.

Once we file a claim, an international investigation is opened between USPS and your country’s postal service. This investigation period can take up to 32 working days to be completed for most counties (some may take longer). ***While USPS has 32 working days to investigate, we find that within a few days of opening a case that the majority of packages are located and immediately pushed back on route to their destination so most times you do not have to wait long to get a resolution.

Once the investigation is completed, either your package has been located and will continue its route to be delivered to you or if it has not been located, the insurance claim process to issue reimbursement will begin. Insurance claims can take an additional 30 working days to process and clear.


Refund will be issued to customer once USPS approves the insurance claim or upon proof of package being returned to our office. We cannot issue refund during the active investigation period or during the claim processing period. We must wait to see what the final determination is (please remember there is a 32 working day investigation timeframe plus a 30 working day claim processing time).

Refund through a claim has a $200 limit as imposed by USPS. Claims are only valid on lost or damaged packages.

---

>> First Class International orders do not come with shipping insurance or investigations, therefore we cannot recover any funds to refund back to you, nor can we open an investigation to locate your package. Customer assumes all risk for lost or damaged packages when placing orders with this shipping option. In the case that a package is returned to our office, we will issue a refund (minus the shipping costs). International returns can take as long as 3+ months to be returned back to sender so until the package is back in our possession or we have return shipping confirmation through tracking, we cannot issue a refund until then. We strongly recommend that you choose Priority Mail for the added protection.
