1. Products and payments


We sell skincare products. The (total) prices of our products are indicated in our online shop. You can pay through our online payment services Bancontact, iDEAL, credit cards (American Express, Maestro, MasterCard, Visa), PayPal, Bank transfer, and Giropay. Besides the product price, you bear the delivery costs for orders below €50.


2. Delivery


MAIWE Skincare offers free delivery on all orders above €50. For orders up to €50, the shipping cost is €5. We deliver your order to the address you have specified. Once the product has been dispatched, we can no longer change the delivery address. We work with BPost as our fulfilment partner for national delivery and DHL or UPS for international delivery. They handle the distribution of our products. If we fail to deliver within 30 days after order confirmation, you may (a) request an immediate refund of the purchase price of your order or (b) request a product replacement.

Once your order has been dispatched, we provide you with a track & trace code, which you can use to trace your package. Please note that the postman will try to deliver at your specified address once. If door delivery fails, the postman will bring your package to the nearest parcel shop. Here, you need to collect it within x working days specified by the transport partner. If you fail to collect it within that time period, the product will be sent back to us and you will have to pay the shipping costs of €5 to receive your product.


3. Returns


You can return a product within 14 days after receipt (the “withdrawal period”), given that the product is still unopened, sealed and in perfect condition (no damages to the product or packaging). Within this period, you shall handle the product and its packaging with care. To request a return, please send an email to hello@maiweskin.com. We will provide you with a return authorization and our mailing information. Afterwards, you need to return the product within 14 days. After receiving your return, we will refund the full amount of your purchase price within 14 days after receipt. Alternatively, we can exchange your product and reimburse or charge the difference. We do not reimburse the initial shipping costs, but always cover the return costs. If the initial order is above €50 and you decide to return a product and with that the balance order value is below €50, then the shipping costs will be deducted from your refund value.

If you have purchased a MAIWE Skincare product from one of our authorized retailers and want a return, please contact the store for assistance. We only handle returns of items purchased directly from maiweskin.com.


4. Liability


We are not liable for any damages that may result from your use of our product. However, we are liable for damages that result from our wilful misconduct or gross negligence. In any case, our liability never exceeds the purchase price of the product that has caused the damage.


5. Intellectual property 


We own the intellectual property rights of our products, texts, photos, videos and other materials, including copyrights, wordmarks and trademarks (or we have the permission of their owners to use them). You shall refrain from committing any acts that may infringe these rights.
