• Order and Shipping Confirmation

Once your order has been successfully  placed, you will receive email confirmation – this email will include your order number, date your order was placed, and the shipping method. Please carefully check to make sure that your shipping address is shown correctly as we are unable to redirect goods once they are en route to you.

    • Shipping Charges

New Zealand – All shipping costs are included in the purchase price of all Forbidden Beauty products,  so there will be no additional charges.

Australia –  At checkout there will be a $10 charge to cover shipping. Whilst this doesn’t cover the full shipping cost incurred, at least wearing half of the cost ourselves sends the love to our Australian neighbours.

Rest of the World – At this stage we only post within New Zealand and Australia. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to arrange shipment to your country. Email us to enquiry and we will see what we can do for you.


Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

  • Late or Missing Refunds

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at :
