The withdrawal period expires 14 days after the date when the Buyer receives the first product to his mailbox.
If the package has been shipped before the right of withdrawal was used, it is assumed that the shipment will be returned intact in original packaging with the completed withdrawal form which comes with the first delivery. The Buyer is obliged to cover return postage. Cosmetics is regarded as hygiene products, ref., the Right of Withdrawal Act §22 g, and is therefore not suitable for return if the seal is broken after delivery. Norwegian authorities have an established food classification to ensure that it is healthy and complies with the quality assurance requirements. If the right of withdrawal is applied to products where the seal is broken, the original requirement will be maintained even if the package is sent in return. The Buyer will be responsible for any damage to the returned product.

Invoices issued outside the right of withdrawal are not credited. Upon return of a package due to unknown address, a postage fee of NOK 79 will be incurred when the package is resent to the correct address.
In some cases, the package will be sent to the post office, mostly because the package does not fit in the mailbox. Parcels that are not collected within 2 weeks are automatically sent back to Virena.
