Refund and Returns Policy

When you buy something from us, we always hope that you are 100% satisfied however, should you change your mind (it happens to the best of us), we are happy to accept returns or exchanges on items that are in original condition, have not been opened or used, within 14 days from the date of delivery of an item.  All items will be reviewed individually upon return, and kindly ensure to include a copy of your purchase receipt.

To start a return, please contact us at orders@beauty.thekensingtonian.co.uk, then once your return has been accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. 

Returns Via Post

We’ve made returning effortless!

Once you have contacted us at orders@beauty.thekensingtonian.co.uk and your return request has been accepted, you will receive a return shipping label. Please complete the “returns section” on the reverse of your dispatch notice, detailing each item, quantity, and why you are returning the item(s) to us. Place this form in your parcel, along with your products. If you are a United Kingdom resident, then please attach your free returns label to the outside of your package. Make sure to remove or cover the original shipping label if using the original packaging. Now you’re all set, and just need to drop the parcel off at your nearest Post Office. 

We recommend you use a secure or trackable method of postage. All returns and exchanges should be sent to the address provided by The Kensingtonian via email orders@beauty.thekensingtonian.co.uk.

 For returns from all other locations outside of the United Kingdom kindly note that you will be responsible for all return postage fees, taxes, customs duty, and clearance charges where applicable.

Remember to keep your proof of postage in a safe place. The products and their condition remain your responsibility until we receive them. Once we receive your package you will be sent a confirmation email, and the refund process will commence. 

The products you wish to return are your responsibility until we receive them. It’s a good idea to get insurance for the value of the items you are returning and obtain proof of postage. We at The Kensingtonian cannot be held responsible for any items returned in error. 

If your refund is accepted, we will refund the price you paid for your item back to your original payment method. If we receive a returned item in an unsuitable condition, the refund will become void, and the item(s) will be returned to you. Kindly note that unless you are returning a faulty item, our delivery charges are non-refundable, and The Kensingtonian is not responsible for delivery fees or lost returns.

If you are unsure of the process or simply want to know more about our returns and exchange policy then please feel free to contact us at orders@beauty.thekensingtonian.co.uk.
