Customers must provide a valid billing address that matches the address to which their debit or credit card is registered.

Goods will be delivered to the address provided at the time of ordering. Delivery is free to the UK and Channel Islands, but charges may apply for other destinations.
All orders are sent using a recorded delivery service and must be signed for upon receipt by the addressee. If the addressee is not present at the time of delivery, the order may be held at a local mail centre for collection or re-delivery. It is the customer’s responsibility to arrange for collection or re-delivery of the item. Failure to do so will result in the item being returned to the SkinStation. If an item is returned, SkinStation will contact the customer to arrange re-delivery to the same or an alternative address. SkinStation reserve the right to charge the customer for postage costs for any re-delivery of items.

For orders outside of Europe, we ask customers to allow up to 28 days for delivery.
Any orders that contain a prescription only item (a medicine) will require the customer to have a consultation with a member of our medical team. This will involve the customer providing personal information about their medical history and consenting to the use of the products. The customer will be advised as to the suitability of the products and on their proper use.
Orders containing prescription-only items, will only be dispatched once the customer has completed a consultation. SkinStation will attempt to contact the patient on the telephone number provided and at the time specified by the customer at the time of placing the order. SkinStation will attempt to contact the customer at least once per day and in the event that SkinStation cannot reach the customer, the customer must make all reasonable effort to contact the SkinStation during the normal business hours.

Unfortunately, the Pharmacist will advise a list of countries that prescription products can't be dispatched too.
All products and packaging, where applicable, will be compliant with EU regulations. This will mean that in some instances the packaging and product will vary slightly from the products supplied in the US. The main difference with be a ' Parabens free' policy as a result of a change in the EU legislations in respect of certain chemicals. The products have been demonstrated to produce the same the therapeutic effects and we guarantee that all Obagi products will be sourced from the Obagi manufacturer with a traceable audit trail to ensure you receive genuine fully clinically tested products.
We regret that we cannot take back or refund products once opened. Whilst we try to ensure all non prescription products have an expiry date beyond 6 months from the expiry date, we are unable to replace or refund 'out of date products' which have been delivered to you longer than 3 calendar months from the date of expiry. In the case of faulty products, please return the products so we may contact the manufacturer and assist you with a replacement and refund as appropriate. Please note that prescription products are dispensed by an independent pharmacy and are subject to pharmacy law.
Refused and undeliverable orders - All undeliverable packages due to incorrect name or address, or not present, failure to collect, will be refunded minus any delivery costs www.skinstation.co.uk has incurred in sending the order out to the patient.
If an order has not been collected in the allocated time and the patient wishes for it to be re-sent, we reserve the right to charge any additional postal costs.
Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.
It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
Prescriptions for registered patients only
Prescription request are only available to patients registered with The Aesthetic Skin Clinic. By acknowledging that you are a patient of the practice you confirm that you are willing to submit to providing information for examination for the medical team to make the necessary assessment to allow a pharmacist to prescribe.
Following your consultation, one of our Doctors will issue you with a prescription for your prescription-only products, which we will keep on file. You will also be issued with a series of repeat prescriptions which are required for you to complete your Obagi program or other treatment course. Whilst we hold repeat prescriptions for you on file, you will not need a further consultation, unless you order a different product or your medical history changes. Each time a product is dispensed and dispatched to you, a prescription is used up. You can continue to re-order your products until you have used up all of your repeat prescriptions for that particular product. Should you wish to continue with your treatment program after you have used up your repeat prescriptions, then you will have to have a new consultation with a member of our medical team before any further products can be dispatched to you.
