As we enter the holiday season, we all want to look our best. This means that I find myself wanting to try out new lipstick colors, different brands of makeup and new fragrances. Unfortunately, I can’t always try on the exact makeup I want in the store, and sometimes that glorious perfume I bought doesn’t agree with my sensitive skin. Luckily, there are some stores that offer a 100% money-back guarantee on beauty products, which gives me the peace of mind I need to try new things without breaking the bank. Here are a few of my favorite stores that will guarantee any of your future beauty purchases:

1. Rite Aid

They offer a 100% money-back guarantee from any beauty product purchased. Just bring in the opened or used item within 30 days of your purchase along with the original receipt to receive your money back. They even include cosmetic organizers and hair dryers!

2. CVS

Opened or unopened beauty purchases are covered in CVS’s money-back guarantee. Regardless of whether you purchased online or in-store, all beauty purchases receive the full purchase price credited back as long as the item is returned with a receipt within their 60-day window. Returns without the receipt will result in store credit. They even include sunscreen! Now I don’t have to worry about whether I got the right type of sunscreen for my kids—if it doesn’t work, then back to the store it goes!

3. Bath & Body Works

Vanilla Bean Noel is always at the top of my Christmas gift list! I love this fragrance in any shape or size. But some of their fragrances are too pungent for me! Thankfully, Bath & Body Works offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee with the receipt, and there’s no time limit for returns.


They offer a 100% guarantee within 30 days of purchase with a receipt. Just return the unused portion of the product you’re not happy with and you’ll receive a full refund. So if that “Extra Lasting Concealer” doesn’t hold up to the full 18 hours, I can just send it back!

5. Walgreens

Featuring a 30-day return policy, Walgreens has a 100% return guarantee for any Walgreens brand product. The manager at my local Walgreens will allow just about any kind of used cosmetic to be returned, but check with your local store since the return of used cosmetics is up to the discretion of the store manager.

6. Ulta

Known for giving free samples with every order, Ulta offers a 100% money-back guarantee for any product you are not satisfied with. Just return the product with the receipt within 60 days of purchase.

7. is great place to get your beauty goods since there are always coupons and/or free samples involved. If you purchase a cosmetic product featuring the 100% Color Guarantee and you’re not satisfied, you can return the product for a full refund. The product must feature this 100% Color Guarantee logo. Shipping is not refunded.
