Returns & Exchanges

Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased ( and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

Please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased at your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a Socialite Beauty Gift Card.

Whoa, Guys.

This stuff is incredible! I added this to my regime because I was looking for an antioxidant and something to help with moisture retention. I cannot believe the difference. This one product completely transformed my skin. I have acne and it hasn’t clogged up my pores at all (which is always a concern). On the contrary, my pores are smoother and smaller than ever. My skin has become so incredibly soft it’s unbelievable. My sister will come up to me now and just randomly pet my face because it’s so smooth. What a ******. Also, my normally flaky skin is SO much better. Like, I used to spend hours trying to get rid of noticeable flakes (caused by me picking at my acne) and now I usually don’t have to worry about flaking at all. I will be adding a few more things from The Ordinary to complete my beauty routine, but I can be sure that Pycnogenol was a great choice- one that has made a tangible and rather mind-blowing difference. Also, to note- I just LOVE Socialite Beauty itself. The shipping is fast and reliable, the discounts are amazing, and the selection is just incredible. I’m so happy to have found such an awesome Canadian supplier of such a wide range of clean beauty products. Keep doin’ what you’re doin’.

In my regular rotation

Have been using this for a few months now and it is in my permanent rotation. Makes my skin soft and hydrates, but is totally weightless and does not make me break out. Highly recommend.

I've loved every Ordinary product I've tried and the price can't be beat. I was looking for a new night time serum, so I decided to try pycnogenol after reading Deciem reviews. My skin felt exceptionally smooth after the first night and I hardly needed any at all. It's bright red and some reviewers said if you put too much on it can stain fabric.
