Terms and Conditions

Your use of this Site constitutes your agreement to comply with the following terms and conditions (the “Agreement”):

Intellectual Property Rights

This Site and all materials contained on this Site, including but not limited to images, text, photographs, designs, icons and illustrations, except those already covered by existing copyright and intellectual property protections, are the property of Episencial, Inc., (“Episencial.”), and/or its owners or affiliates. To reproduce, republish, alter, upload, post, transmit, distribute or publicly display material from this Site, you will need written permission from Episencial. The trademarks and logos used and displayed on this Site are trademarks of Episencial and others. Nothing contained on the Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any trademark displayed on the Site without the written permission of the trademark owner. Users may view and download material from this Site only for personal, noncommercial home use, and such permission is deemed adequate consideration for this contract. Episencial will aggressively enforce its intellectual property rights to the fullest extent of the law. Any rights not expressly guaranteed herein are reserved by Episencial.

Product/Advice Disclaimer

This web site does not offer medical advice, or attempt to diagnose or treat any skin problem, disease, or skin condition. If you have a medical problem with your skin, please make an appointment to see a dermatologist in your area. All products should be used as directed on the product container or on this website. Discontinue using any product that causes irritation (redness, itching, burning, scaling, soreness, or other symptoms). If you are dissatisfied with any product purchased here, you may return it for a full refund within 60 days of the purchase date (see Exchange & Return Policy).

What is your return policy?

At Episencial we stand behind every product we sell. If you are not absolutely satisfied with any purchase, for any reason, we will happily provide a prompt refund, credit, or exchange for the purchase price (including California State tax, if any, but not including shipping) within 60 days of purchase.

If you are not completely satisfied with your Episencial product, please email info@episencial.com.

Please send the package securely wrapped and pre-paid to our offices (we do not accept C.O.D. mail or shipping charges):

Episencial Returns

2894 Rowena Ave. Suite B

Los Angeles, CA 90039

(Please note that you are responsible for the safe return of merchandise and all shipping costs).

Please return items within 60 days. The cost of the items (including tax, if any, but not including shipping) returned will be promptly refunded, credited to your credit card, or exchanged for the purchase price and tax (if any) depending on how the product was originally purchased.

Note to International Customers: Because duties and taxes are collected by the government in the country where the goods are received (and not by Episencial), we do not reimburse for these expenses.

The information provided by this website or this company does not substitute for a face-to-face consultation with a dermatologist or with your physician, and should not be construed as individual medical advice.

Information/Recommendations Disclaimer

The intent of this site is to present the author and her team’s ideas and perceptions about the marketing, selling, and use of cosmetics. The author and team’s sole purpose is to present consumer information and advice regarding the purchase of skincare products. The information and recommendations presented strictly reflect the author and her team’s opinions, perceptions, and knowledge about the subject and products mentioned. Some people may find success with a particular product that is not recommended or even mentioned on this site, or they may be partial to a skin-care routine Kim and her team have reviewed negatively. It is everyone’s unalienable right to judge products by their own criteria and to disagree with the author or her team.

More important, because everyone’s skin can, and probably will, react to an external stimulus at some time, any product could cause a negative reaction on skin at one time or another. If you develop skin sensitivity to a product, stop using it immediately and consult your physician. If you need medical advice about your skin, consult a dermatologist or physician.
