Acceptance of your order will not take place until after your payment is taken and you receive your acknowledgement of order email. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any such contract is subject to these terms and conditions.
Payment for the products and delivery charges can be made by any method shown on our website at the time you place your order. Payment for the products and delivery charges is taken at the time we receive your order, once we have checked your card details and stock availability. Goods are subject to availability. In the event that we are unable to supply the goods we will inform you of this as soon as possible and a full refund will be issued.

6. Product Descriptions and Pricing of Products
The description and price of the products you order will be as shown on our website at the time you place your order. All prices quoted include VAT at the current rate, where applicable.
Product descriptions on the SSS website are provided by the manufacturers / distributors, but please remember the descriptions relate to individual products and results and reactions on the skin will vary widely depending on other products they are used in conjunction with.
Please also bear in mind any medications including prescription creams, tablets, hormonal body changes and clinic / beauty facials can also effect the results and reactions. It is the customers responsibility to patch test any product prior to use, check compatibility of any purchased products with other material facts that can effect results described and SSS cannot take responsibility for any adverse reactions.
The majority of products are in stock, however if due to stock shortage it appears to us that we are unlikely to be able to deliver the products within 5 working days of receipt of your order then we will either contact you within the said 5 working day period to agree a revised date for anticipated delivery of the products or re-credit any sum/s that have been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the products concerned. A confirmation email shall be sent confirming this refund.
Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, SSS will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling your order. If SSS does not receive an order confirmation within 14 days of informing you of the error, the order will be cancelled automatically. If you cancel the order, or if the order is cancelled automatically due to the expiry of the 14 day period, SSS will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit/debit card for the products.
Free sample received with your order may vary in brand and quantity depending on current availability.
