Are taxes and duties included in my order total?
Yep! If your order is subject to duties, taxes, or related fees, you'll be charged at checkout (you won’t need to pay anything extra when your package is delivered). We collect the amount for sales tax and duty at checkout and our shipping partner will pay them when your order is cleared through customs.
Do you ship to PO Boxes?
We can ship to PO Boxes with Standard shipping only.
My tracking details aren't working, Can you help?
Of course! Sometimes, the carrier takes 1–2 business days to register your shipment status, so we recommend allowing 48 hours for the tracking details to update. That said, if your tracking number isn’t updating or working at all, please reach out to us via gTEAM@glossier.com. We're always here to help!
How can I edit my shipping address?
If your order is shipping to an incorrect address, please email gTEAM@glossier.com.
I know you ship to my country, but I don't see it as an option at checkout. How can I change the shipping country?
You'll need to make sure you're shopping from the correct country site first! To change the currency you’re shopping in (and country you’re shipping to), just scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the correct country. Right now, we only ship to the countries listed here, but we're working on bringing Glossier to more countries in the future.
Are there limitations with shipping fragrance in the U.S.?
Since fragrance is considered a Hazardous Materials, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires ground-only shipment due to air shipment restrictions and regulations. Unfortunately, this means that fragrance products and samples cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territories, PO Boxes or APO/ FPO addresses, or to Canada addresses in these postal codes. All orders containing fragrance must be shipped via standard ground shipping methods and cannot be shipped via expedited shipping methods.
Can you tell me about fulfillment safety during the pandemic?
The safety of our team and customers is our top priority. We’re monitoring the situation very closely and working with our external fulfillment partners who are committed to taking all necessary safety precautions.
How can I find out more information about a product?
You can learn all about our products on their individual product pages. If you have any other questions or thoughts, let us know by emailing gTEAM@glossier.com.

Are Glossier products cruelty free?
We’re committed to being cruelty free: this means we do not test on animals at any stage of product development, and we will only work with vendors who uphold the same standards. We are proud to share that our products are certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, the only internationally recognized certification organization for cruelty-free companies. Being Leaping Bunny certified also means we’ll have regular independent audits to ensure we’re compliant.
Can I sell Glossier products in my own store?
Your purchase of Glossier products is only for your personal use. By purchasing Glossier products, you agree not to resell or distribute such products for any commercial purposes. We may reject or cancel an order if we have reason to believe that your order is not for your personal use.
Can you help with a product I bought from a third party marketplace?
We’re only able to guarantee the authenticity of products purchased on Glossier.com, at our retail locations, and through authorized partnerships. We’re also not able to process returns or exchanges or otherwise assist with orders not placed through Glossier.com or at our retail locations.
How are Glossier products different from other beauty brands?
Our products reflect our belief that beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal. Our formulas are designed to live with you, not on you, and enhance what you already have. They are meant to be touched, smooshed, traveled with, cherished, and shared until their packages are crinkly and dirty and can literally give no more. They represent fun and freedom, and are the result of years of recommendations from people who love beauty.
When is the next product launching?
We’ll be coming out with new products very soon—sign up with your email address to get the latest updates.
I have a weird question and I want to talk to a person about it.
We’ve got people who love that kind of thing. To ask anything and get a quick, personal reply, email us at gTEAM@glossier.com. Don’t worry—we check it constantly.
How can I get Glossier stickers?
All Glossier orders include a seasonal sticker (it changes depending on seasons or when new product launches). We cannot send stickers separately of orders.
Returns and Exchanges
How do I place a return or exchange?
For returns, please click on your order number on your Account page. From there, you can check to see if your order is eligible for a self-service return. If you don’t see the return option there, or you’d like to process an exchange, please reach out to gTEAM@glossier.com or visit one of our stores with your order number and the products you'd like to exchange or return, and we'll take care of the rest.
What’s your return policy?
All returns must be processed within 30 days of receiving the order.
The original order number must be provided to place a return, and you will be refunded in full to your original form of payment (with the exception of in-store cash purchases, which will be refunded with store credit). Please note, gift cards and store-specific merchandise are final sale."
How long does it take to receive a refund? "Credit card refunds usually take 5–10 business days to appear on your statement.
Gift card refunds will be available right way on your original gift card.
What should I do if I receive the wrong product?
Just email gTEAM@glossier.com with your order number, and we’ll be sure to get you the Glossier you ordered!
Can I return a product I received as a gift?
If you were gifted Glossier but it isn't what you had in mind, you can return your items for store credit. Please reach out to gTEAM@glossier.com or visit one of our stores with the gifter's first and last name, email address, and the products you’d like to return or exchange (the gifter won’t be notified of any changes). Once locating the original order, we'll handle it!
How do I pay with a gift card?
To redeem your gift card, just choose Gift Card as your payment method at checkout, and enter the unique code included in your gift card email. If the gift card amount is less than your order total, you'll also need to add an additional payment method to cover the remaining balance for the order. If your gift card has a remaining balance after your order is placed, you can use that amount on your next order, so be sure to save your unique code to use again next time!
Please note, gift cards are currently only available for purchase in the United States and United Kingdom.
I used to have store credit in my Glossier account, but I can't find it anymore. How can I use it?
We recently transitioned our site to use a new format for store credit. Any credit from our previous system has been automatically transferred to a digital gift card—you should have received a digital gift card with your remaining Glossier balance in October 2022. Once you receive your gift card via email, you must activate it by clicking on the digital gift card link. This will show the code you will use to redeem your store credit at checkout. If you can't find the email from us, we suggest checking your spam/junk folder just in case, and you can email gTEAM@glossier.com if you need more help!
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept PayPal, Shop Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club credit cards or debit cards. We also offer Afterpay installments.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept checks, money orders, or American Express gift cards.
What can I do if my payment is declined?
We recommend checking that your card's billing details (such as the security code and zip code) match what you’ve entered into our system, and that your card is not expired.
Your card issuer may have declined your payment. They don’t tell us the reason for this, so it’s best to check with them before trying your card again. If none of these apply, please contact us at gTEAM@glossier.com. We’re happy to help!
