Cancellation Policy for Appointments in Clinic

We know that sometimes you are unable to make your appointment and it's necessary for you to change it. During this time too with COVID-19, to safeguard and protect the health and well-being of our clients and staff, we encourage you to please contact your clinic as soon as possible to reschedule any appointments with us if you're feeling unwell. We will work our magic and find the next best available appointment that suits both of us, so we can keep those skin ambitions on track.  Out of consideration for others, we kindly ask that you provide a minimum of 24 hours' notice if you need to change or cancel your appointment. Any cancellations after this time will incur a charge. An appointment for a free loyalty rewards treatment that is cancelled at short notice may result in forfeiture of the treatment.

The following specific Terms and Conditions of sale apply to all purchases by you through our website, via phone or in our Clinics.  By completing a purchase order you are confirming your agreement to our Terms. 

Acceptance of Orders:  Dispatch is subject to stock availability and you will be advised if a Product is unavailable.  To the maximum extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to any person if we decline to fulfil, or are unable to fulfil, an order.

Prices:  We will charge you the retail price shown on the website at the time you submit your order, unless there is an error. You may be charged additional delivery fees.

Payment:  You may pay online by MasterCard, Visa, Amex, Afterpay, Google Pay and Apple Pay. Unfortunately we are unable to accept About Face Gift Cards online.

Delivery: We currently only supply to New Zealand addresses. Please ensure the delivery address and receiver’s name for your order is accurate and complete (including any business name if shipping to a work address) as we may be unable to change these details once the order has been placed.  We will not take responsibility for any orders that go missing due to incorrect delivery information.  We will endeavour to deliver the Products on the agreed dates but we will not be held liable for late delivery. Delivery to rural addresses may take longer in some areas. Delivery will be deemed to have been made when the Products arrive at the delivery point, or when the Products are available for collection by you. You must notify us within 10 days of the dispatch if you have not received an item.

Cancellations: Please carefully check your order details before completing payment. Once your order is confirmed, we are unable to change or cancel any aspects of your order. We reserve the right to cancel orders or request other methods of payment for orders received.

Returns: Please choose carefully as generally we do not refund any item bought online or in clinic unless it is faulty and/or required by the Consumer Guarantees Act. In some circumstances we do allow you to return item/s purchased from us within 10 days of the purchase (or of receiving the order if made online) by visiting one of our clinics but we require proof of purchase and the item must be in its original condition.  The amount to be refunded will be done so in the form of payment made at the time of the original transaction or we will issue you with a credit note valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. If you wish to return an item bought online please write to info@aboutface.co.nz. Unfortunately, we cannot accept items returned that are not in their original condition or if you seek to return outside our specified timeframes.  Return of items is limited to clients based in New Zealand.  If your items arrive damaged please photograph and keep all contents including the packaging or parcel that the items arrived in and contact info@aboutface.co.nz

Resale Prohibited: You may not sell or resell any Product you purchase or otherwise receive from us. We reserve the right, with or without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of any order or Products or Services to be provided to you if we believe, in our sole discretion, it may result in the violation of our Terms.

Gift Cards
