ORDERS

Online + Phone Orders

Only orders placed online  generate an Order Confirmation email. Make sure that @faceatelier.com is added to your list of safe senders and check your junk mail before contacting us if you don't receive it. You may call 403.441.7888 to place your order however you will not receive an Order Confirmation email.

Order Processing

Orders are typically shipped within two business days of being placed. This does not take into account weekends and holidays that may delay shipping by 1-2 more business days. At checkout you will have the option of expediting your order. For rate information go to Shipping. Once an order is placed, you can attempt to change or cancel your order before shipping by email or calling 1.403.441.7888. We will do our best to accommodate your request. At this time we can only ship to one address per order. If you want to ship products to two different addresses, you must place two separate orders. Full-size products may be returned for a refund within 30 days of date of purchase if the reasons for return fall within our refund policies.
 

Out-of-stock Items + Backorders

FACE atelier is committed to product availability but occasionally an item is temporarily unavailable. In the event that we do run out of a product, an out-of-stock notice will appear on the product page. We recommend that you check back frequently as we replenish stock as quickly as we can. At this time, we don’t process backorders.

PAYMENTS + BILLING

Payment Methods

We currently accept VISA and MasterCard. For your security, your billing name and address must match that of the credit card used for payment. We reserve the right to cancel any order. Contact your financial institution if you need the exact billing address associated with your credit card.

Billing

Your credit card is billed at the time the order is placed.

Debit Cards

At this time we do not accept debit cards.

Credit Card Security

All credit card processing is done through an encrypted session between your browser and the server. The technical term for this is SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, which is an Internet standard security protocol. This site uses SSL version 2, which encrypts all information sent or received while users are viewing or filling in information from secure areas of the site. With SSL, no one can see credit card information from your session over the Internet. These forms are only sent from secure areas of our site. Credit card information is also stored in a secure area of the site, and is not kept on the web server. Access to this information is restricted to customers only. Customer Service representatives will only see part of a credit card number displayed when accessing customer information. They will not see an entire credit card number.

Fraud Protection

All orders and payment forms are subject to verification and review by FACE atelier. FACE atelier reserves the right to refuse to process any transaction, sale, or shipment of orders due to suspected fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity.

SHIPPING

All orders are shipped on regular business days, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Shipping costs are based upon the total purchase price before taxes and the destination of the order. They include handling charges and reflect the fact that goods are shipped from Calgary, Alberta. Total shipping and handling charges will depend upon how you choose to ship your order.

Shipping Estimator

You can get an estimate of your shipping costs when you go to your Shopping Cart. The rates will depend upon how you choose to ship your order and may increase as you add more items to your cart.

Shipping Options

Standard ground shipping is only available for shipments within Canada and the Continental US, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.

Expedited shipping is available to all regions. Please note that shipments to select rural or remote destinations may result in extended shipping times.

Overnight shipping is available only in the US and Canada. Orders are estimated to arrive approximately 1 business days after shipping from the warehouse, however in rare cases an overnight shipment to the US may be held for inspection by Customs or the FDA.

Tracking Orders

After placing your order, within a short time you will receive an e-mail confirmation. Once the order is shipped you will receive tracking information for your order from FedEx or Canpar (if you live in certain regions in Canada). Make sure that Fedex.com and/or Canpar.com is added to your safe senders list. If you don't receive tracking information after a few days of placing your order, please check your junk folder before contacting us.

If you have any questions regarding delivery of your order once it's been shipped, you must contact the shipping company, not FACE atelier.

PO Boxes

FACE atelier cannot ship to PO Boxes. Did you ever wonder why?  It's because Postal Services worldwide don't allow anyone else to utilize a PO box. 

Delayed Shipments

Once the order is shipped you will receive tracking information for your order. If the order is delayed once it’s been shipped, you must contact the shipping company, not FACE atelier. Cosmetics are a highly regulated consumer product and may be subject to inspection when entering the US and international destinations. This rarely happens, but it when it does it may delay delivery of your order.

Duties, Taxes + Fees

The rates of duties, taxes and fees vary from country to country and FACE atelier is not responsible for their payment. We suggest you investigate what fees, taxes and duties may be levied upon cosmetics prior to ordering.

Missed Deliveries

FedEx and Canpar (Canada only) will make several attempts to deliver your order.  If you miss all of them, it’s your responsibility to contact them immediately to arrange delivery.  Do not contact FACE atelier - we can't help you as the recipient must make the call. FACE atelier is not responsible if you miss a delivery - if the package is sent back to FACE atelier, we are not responsible for the cost of re-shipping the package. Nor will we reimburse the initial cost of shipping.

Damaged Shipments

All goods leave FACE atelier in good condition and FACE atelier is not responsible for damages that occur in shipping and during inspection at the border. If you receive an item that’s damaged, take images of the damaged shipment. Save all packaging (including the shipping label) and the damaged goods until the claim is resolved. Email us with the images with your shipping information, including your tracking number. At that point we will submit the claim for you. FACE atelier cannot accept a claim for a damaged shipment if your claim is missing photographic evidence.

Canadian Shipments + Rates

Orders shipped within Canada will be delivered by FedEx or Canpar. As FACE atelier is located in Alberta, only GST is charged.  

Shipping costs are based upon the total purchase price before taxes and the destination of the order. Total shipping charges will calculate and display during checkout prior to the completion of your order. During the checkout process, you will have the choice of Ground, Expedited or overnight shipping within Canada. You will receive tracking information from either FedEx or Canpar.

US Shipments + Rates

All merchandise is shipped from Canada and the cost includes handling. It doesn’t include, nor is FACE atelier responsible for, any duties or fees that may be levied by US Customs and Border Protection or the FDA (Federal Drug Administration.) The majority of products fall within NAFTA and are duty free; however FDA regulations and fees supersede NAFTA. If FDA fees are charged on a shipment, don't call us as we can't get them reversed and they're not including in shipping. Perhaps call your Senator? Sometimes there's nothing free about free trade.

Shipping costs are based upon the total purchase price and the destination of the order. They include handling charges and reflect that the goods are shipped from Calgary, Alberta. Total shipping charges will calculate and display during checkout prior to the completion of your order. During the checkout process, you will have the choice of Ground (except Hawaii and Alaska), Expedited (only Alaska and Hawaii) or Overnight shipping. You will receive tracking information from FedEx. Due to negotiated shipping rates, it costs only a few dollars more to overnight a shipment to the US as opposed to shipping it ground. Rather than inflate overnight costs, we pass the savings onto you!
