All products displayed on this website are available only whilst stocks last. All photos, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued on this website and any descriptions, photos or illustrations are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described in them. It is important to note that images may vary. They will not form part of the contract with you and no warranty or guarantee shall be expressed or implied in the contract with you in this regard. All prices are subject to change, are quoted in Euro and are inclusive of VAT at 21% where applicable. This is a new temporary vat reduction and is subject to change. All sale prices quoted are valid only while stocks last.
It is important to always ensure to read the labels for ingredients prior to use as these may vary to those listed on the site. All products should be patch tested before complete use to determine suitability. It is then the customer’s responsibility to determine whether a product is suitable for use on their skin. Whilst advice may be given via telephone or email, SkinShop cannot be held responsible if a product reacts with your skin or if you simply do not like the product. It is recommended that you have a skin consultation at one of our clinics www.laserandskin.ie prior to using cosmeceuticals products due to their active nature.
With every order at SkinShop you have the opportunity to select 2 samples free. You can view the samples selection currently available at checkout. After you have selected 2 samples, they will be automatically added to your basket. It is important that you add the samples to your shopping cart prior to payment otherwise they will not be sent. Samples will not be sent out separately if not selected on original order. Samples are limited and may change from time to time. Only one of each sample can be added per order.
Due to the limited nature of the free samples, we regret that we are unable to reship samples if they arrive damaged, if you received the wrong one, or if one is missing from your order. Samples are shipped with merchandise purchases ONLY. Please note that eGift Certificates and Gift Cards are not considered merchandise. (The samples can only be added when the voucher is being re-deemed.)
Please note that free samples are complimentary, and we are not obliged to offer them. We reserve the right to remove the option for free samples at any time.
All prices shown are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering the information onto the system. We reserve the right, however, to change prices at any time without notice to you.
Payment can be made by any major credit or debit card or via your PayPal account. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account before the dispatch of your good or provision of the service to you. If payment is to be made via a credit card a pre-auth value will be held against the card until the card issuer validates the payment.
In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on skinshop.ie are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If you cancel your order and you have already paid for the goods, then you will receive a full refund.
You confirm that the credit, debit card or PayPal account that is being used is yours. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us we will not be liable to you for any delay or non-delivery.
You may only use one discount code with each order. We reserve the right to reject or cancel any orders where you add more than one discount code to the basket.
We allow you to use discount codes strictly on the terms and conditions upon which they were issued which, amongst other things, may include terms relating to your eligibility to use them and a maximum order value.
We ask that you familiarise yourself with these terms and conditions before you place an order as we reserve the right to reject or cancel any orders which do not comply with these terms even if your credit or debit card has been charged. If there is any inconsistency between the terms and conditions upon which the discount codes were issued and these terms and conditions, the discount code terms and conditions prevail.
At SkinShop, we want you to feel comfortable and safe when purchasing our products. To make it even easier, we offer the following secure methods of payment at checkout:
- We employ the most up to date internet security.
- We password protect, encrypt and use firewalls as necessary.

Where we are offering a free gift with a product, we shall only provide one free gift per transaction (irrespective of how many products are purchased). The free gift is subject to availability and we reserve the right to change the free gift for an alternative gift.
In order for us to facilitate the provision of a free gift, it may be necessary for us to include the free gift on our site at a nominal value. For the avoidance of doubt, you are not entitled to ‘purchase’ the free gift without purchasing the product it is provided free with and any attempt to ‘purchase’ the free gift will be cancelled (notwithstanding any automated communication you may receive acknowledging your order). In the unlikely event that the free gift is despatched to you, you shall be obliged to return the free gift upon written request.
You are not eligible for the free gift if you have used any other special offer or coupon code within the same order. Only one coupon code is authroised for use per order.
Coupon codes offering free gifts may not automatically add the product to your cart or order confirmation. This will instead appear as a code on your invoice which the warehouse will acknowledge and include your free gift in your order.
You will also be obliged to return the free gift if you are returning the product which allowed you to be eligible for the free gift. Failure to do so will result in a deductible fee to the amount of the RRP of the free gift from the refund amount.
All products should be patch tested before complete use to determine suitability. It is then the customer’s responsibility to determine whether a product is suitable for use on their skin. SkinShop cannot be held responsible if a product reacts with your skin or if you simply do not like the product. It is recommended that you have a skin consultation at one of our clinics www.laserandskin.ie prior to using cosmeceuticals products due to their active nature. If a reaction does occur, photos can be sent to [email protected] which will be forwarded onto the company for review. It will be at their discretion (not skinshop.ie) if a refund is to be given.
