Problem: You Bought a Product, then Found You Don’t Like/Want It
Not everyone can pull off the look below like Keyshia. You bought Technicolor eye shadow or a $100 face cream, then realized it was a bad idea. Now what? Believe it or not, you can probably return it. Many national drugstore chains, including CVS and Rite Aid, allow returns on beauty products—still in the package or already used—as long as you have a receipt. The same goes for some department stores, such as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s. Many beauty specialty stores, like Sephora and Ulta (and their online sites), allow you to get your money back within 60 days. And the shopping channels QVC and HSN accept returns within 30 days. There can be exceptions, so check each store’s website for complete details. You’ll have the most luck with a return if the product is unopened or barely used.
