Are Glossier products cruelty free?
We’re committed to being cruelty free: this means we do not test on animals at any stage of product development, and we will only work with vendors who uphold the same standards. We are proud to share that our products are certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, the only internationally recognized certification organization for cruelty-free companies. Being Leaping Bunny certified also means we’ll have regular independent audits to ensure we’re compliant.
Can I sell Glossier products in my own store?
Your purchase of Glossier products is only for your personal use. By purchasing Glossier products, you agree not to resell or distribute such products for any commercial purposes. We may reject or cancel an order if we have reason to believe that your order is not for your personal use.
Can you help with a product I bought from a third party marketplace?
We’re only able to guarantee the authenticity of products purchased on Glossier.com, at our retail locations, and through authorized partnerships. We’re also not able to process returns or otherwise assist with orders not placed through Glossier.com or at our retail locations.
How are Glossier products different from other beauty brands?
Our products reflect our belief that beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal. Our formulas are designed to live with you, not on you, and enhance what you already have. They are meant to be touched, smooshed, traveled with, cherished, and shared until their packages are crinkly and dirty and can literally give no more. They represent fun and freedom, and are the result of years of recommendations from people who love beauty.
When is the next product launching?
We’ll be coming out with new products very soon—sign up with your email address to get the latest updates.
I have a weird question and I want to talk to a person about it.
We’ve got people who love that kind of thing. To ask anything and get a quick, personal reply, email us at gTEAM@glossier.com. Don’t worry—we check it constantly.
How can I get Glossier stickers?
All Glossier orders include a seasonal sticker (it changes depending on seasons or new product launches). We cannot send stickers separately of orders.
Returns & Exchanges
How do I place a return?
Please reach out to gTEAM@glossier.com or visit one of our stores with your order number and the products you'd like to return, and we'll take care of the rest.
What’s your return policy?
We're happy to help process a return within 30 days of receiving the order.
The original order number must be provided to place a return, and you will be refunded in full to your original form of payment (with the exception of in-store cash purchases, which will be refunded with store credit). Please note, gift cards and store-specific merchandise are final sale.
How long does it take to receive a refund?
Credit card refunds usually take 5-10 business days to appear on your statement.
What should I do if I receive the wrong product?
Just email gTEAM@glossier.com with your order number, and we’ll be sure to get you the Glossier you ordered!
Can I return a product I received as a gift?
If you were gifted Glossier but it isn't what you had in mind, you can return your items for store credit. Please reach out to gTEAM@glossier.com or visit one of our stores with the gifter's first and last name, email address, and the products you’d like to return (the gifter won’t be notified of any changes). Once locating the original order, we'll handle it!
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept PayPal, Shop Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club credit cards or debit cards. We also offer Clearpay.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept checks, money orders, or American Express gift cards.
How do I pay with a gift card?
To redeem your gift card, just choose Gift Card as your payment method at checkout, and enter the unique code included in your gift card email. If the gift card amount is less than your order total, you'll also need to add an additional payment method to cover the remaining balance for the order. If your gift card has a remaining balance after your order is placed, you can use that amount on your next order, so be sure to save your unique code to use again next time!
Please note, gift cards are currently only available for purchase in the United States and United Kingdom.
What can I do if my payment is declined?
We recommend checking that your card's billing details (such as the security code and zip code) match what you’ve entered into our system, and that your card is not expired.
Your card issuer may have declined your payment. They don’t tell us the reason for this, so it’s best to check with them before trying your card again. If none of these apply, please contact us at gTEAM@glossier.com. We’re happy to help!
Why was my order canceled when I did not request a cancellation?
All orders are subject to our acceptance or rejection based on product availability, and compliance with our Terms of Service. If we have reason to believe that your order is not for personal use, we reserve the right to reject or cancel any order that you place and refund your original form of payment. If you have questions about your order status, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a limit to how many of an item I can purchase?
We enforce a limit of 3 per customer on our merchandise, candles, and limited edition items, a limit of 5 per customer on our fragrance items, and a limit of 20 per customers on beauty and skincare items to protect inventory levels and make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy our products.
I used to have store credit in my Glossier account, but I can't find it anymore. How can I use it?
We recently transitioned our site to use a new format for store credit. Any credit from our previous system has been automatically transferred to a digital gift card—you should have received a digital gift card with your remaining Glossier balance in October 2022. Once you receive your gift card via email, you must activate it by clicking on the digital gift card link. This will show the code you will use to redeem your store credit at checkout. If you can't find the email from us, we suggest checking your spam/junk folder just in case, and you can email gTEAM@glossier.com if you need more help!
What is Clearpay and how do I use it?
Clearpay is a payment service allowing us to offer UK customers the ability to make purchases instantly and then pay for them in 4 automatic installments made every 2 weeks without any interest.
Just shop on Glossier.com and check out as normal. At checkout, choose the Clearpay payment method. You will be directed to the Clearpay website to register and provide payment details (Visa or Mastercard). If you’ve used Clearpay before, just log in to your Clearpay account.

How does the Clearpay payment schedule work?
Clearpay customers make their first payment at the time of purchase, the remaining three payments are deducted every 2 weeks automatically from your selected payment method.
If you would like to make additional unscheduled payments before they are due, you may log in to Clearpay to make your payments early. Clearpay will then adjust the amount owed accordingly.
You can log in to your Clearpay account anytime to view your payment schedule or make a payment before the next due date.
What if I can’t pay a Clearpay installment?
As soon as you miss a payment, Clearpay will immediately stop you from making any further purchases with Clearpay.
Clearpay will give you until 11pm on the following day to make your repayment and then you will incur a late fee for a missed payment that is not resolved.
This will be an initial £6 and a further fee of £6 if the missed payment is not made within 7 days.
Late fees will not exceed 25% of the total order.
Please see Clearpay Terms of Service.
