Returns Policy

If you are not completely satisfied with a Sephora purchase or gift for any reason, please review our return, refund, and exchange policies below for Sephora.com purchases and in-store purchases. Products must be returned in new or gently used condition. Sephora monitors return activity for abuse and reserves the right to limit returns or exchanges at Sephora and Sephora inside JCPenney in all instances.

Sephora.com Purchases

Sephora.com purchases can be easily returned for FREE (no return shipping or handling fees) to any of our Sephora locations or by mail if you use our pre-paid return shipping label (follow the return procedures described below). We regret that we are unable to refund your original shipping charges, if applicable, unless the return was a result of our error.

Please allow two weeks for your return to be processed if sent by mail. You will receive an email confirmation once your return has been processed. Your financial institution may take longer to reflect the transaction.

♦ When you return your purchase to Sephora.com by mail and we receive your item within 60 days of purchase, if you paid with a credit or debit card, you will receive a full refund to your credit or debit card for the purchase price of the item. If you paid with PayPal, you will receive a full refund to your PayPal account.
♦ If we receive your item by mail within 61-90 days of purchase, or if your item was paid for with a Sephora gift card, online store credit or your PayPal account and we receive it by mail within 90 days of purchase, you will receive a full refund in the form of an online store credit for the item which may be redeemed at Sephora.com. For more information on how to redeem your store credit, please go to Customer Service on Sephora.com and click on Payment Methods.
♦ For Sephora.com products returned in store, rather than by mail, refunds are only provided if the product is returned within 60 days of purchase, and you will receive a full refund to your credit or debit card. If you paid with PayPal, you will receive a full refund in your choice of store credit or a gift card.

Items purchased on Sephora.com may not be returned by mail, and will not be refunded, 90 days after the purchase date. Items shipped to Sephora outside of the returns window, not in new or gently used condition, without a receipt, or not purchased at Sephora, may not be credited back or returned to you.

Sephora.com is unable to offer exchanges by mail.
