Returns:

Smudge Boutique prides itself on original and fresh products. With all of your purchases we hope to provide the best possible service and goods. However, if you are not completely satisfied you can return your purchases to us in their original condition, for a refund within 14 days of receipt. Note - the value of refund will exclude shipping costs. If your order has been sent to a destination within the EU, all sales taxes will be refunded. The recipient will be responsible for the cost of returning any items. Smudge Boutique is not responsible for any returns lost or damaged in the post; buyers are advised to use a signed delivery service when returning goods. Considerations should be taken as returning goods may take up to 7 working days to arrive with us, unless sent via special delivery, so please ensure you allow enough time for any return. Smudge Boutique thoroughly check all items for any defects before dispatch, but as an extra precaution we advise that customers check goods on receipt and before removing the garment tag. Once this tag is removed, we will not accept any returns unless the item is faulty. Once we have received the returned goods in their original condition with the Smudge tag intact, complete with all their original packaging, we will refund the original credit or debit card used for the purchase. The refund will incur the value of the order excluding the original delivery charge. We try to process the refund procedure as quick as possible once we have received the returned goods, but please allow up to 10 working days for the refund to be credited to your account. This will also depend on your bank or credit card issuer.

Important Returns Information

Smudge Boutique will not accept returns for items returned outside of the 14 days return period, or items that have been worn, marked (with stains, smell or damage) or where the garment tag has been removed (unless the item is faulty). The item must be returned to us in its original packaging with the completed returns documentation enclosed. Our decision will always be final with regard to the condition of items if we have reasonable grounds to believe they have been worn. In some cases, where Royal Mail has been unable to secure a signature on delivery, the order will be taken to a Royal Mail postal office. If the customer does not collect the order, or arrange a redelivery with Royal Mail, the order will usually be returned to Smudge. Smudge will resend the order to the customer, at the customer’s expense. However, the 14 days returns policy will apply to the date that initial delivery was made, not the date of re-delivery. If what you have been sent is not what you originally ordered, please email sales@smudgeboutique.com quoting your order number, name and address, product details and the reason for return. Please also advise whether you require a refund or a replacement. We will then respond via email or telephone on how to proceed with your return.
