The Ordinary Return Policy Made Simple

While The Ordinary has a generous return policy, their return process is not always crystal-clear for everyone. If you want to return a product from The Ordinary, but you’re not sure how, this is the right article for you.

DoNotPay will explain the ins and outs of The Ordinary return policy. We will also help you file a return request and with our app’s Return My Purchase feature.

The Deciem Return Policy Explained

Since The Ordinary is one of the DECIEM brands, the standard DECIEM return policy also applies to The Ordinary products. You have the right to return unwanted products bought online and in stores within one year of purchase, provided that at least 50% of the product is unused.

Products purchased both online and in person must be returned to DECIEM stores or warehouses. If you bought a DECIEM product from a third-party seller, DECIEM won’t refund it as the item will be subject to that seller’s return policy.

Bundle purchases, such as The Ordinary No-Brainer Set, must be returned as such since the company doesn’t offer partial refunds.

Make sure to keep your physical or digital receipts so DECIEM can track your item’s order number. Keep in mind that shipping fees and Final Sale items are non-returnable.

Refunds are processed within 12 business days of return. It may take longer depending on how busy the company is. You’ll receive a refund to the original payment method, and you will be notified of it via email. If you return a product in person to the closest store, your refund will be issued to PayPal.

DECIEM doesn’t offer replacements.

If DECIEM suspects that you have been abusing the return policy, your return request will be rejected, and your account will be suspended.
