Please note that your credit card statement will reflect a charge from “LIQ GOLD T of Scent Neo Skincare Internet.” You will also receive an invoice clearly indicating the amount you were charged and by whom.

If a Product is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it to us as described below.
LOST MERCHANDISE. Should Products be confirmed as lost in transit, we will replace the Products after the shipment has been traced. Upon notification of the carrier of non-delivery, a claim will be filed by us, and the Products will be replaced.
REFUSALS. Refused shipments may incur a 30% restocking fee plus any freight charges incurred as a result of the refusal of the shipment. Orders refused as a result of our error will not be subject to restocking fees or freight charges.
CREDIT CARD CHARGEBACKS/DISPUTES. If you feel that you have been billed incorrectly or there was a problem with your order, we encourage you to contact us first. If you place a chargeback with your credit card company (on purpose or by mistake) for an order that is determined by the credit card company to have been validly placed and received, you may be charged a $75.00 research fee upon reversal of the chargeback by our merchant provider to cover our investigative expenses proving that you did make the purchase and that you did receive it.
