Registering for an account is optional, but a member enjoys the following benefits:
Membership level is based on accumulated purchases in the past 12 months.
Each purchase of an item earns you points. You can then use these points immediately during checkout to redeem for free samples that you like, such as trial kits or travel sets. Select samples that are useful to you, or of products that you'd like to try to get even more value out of shopping with Hush!
As a member, you will also be able to leave product reviews for products that you have purchased before via our website (via a member checkout). You will get 10 points for each review that you make.
The amount of points each item gives is calculated by our system and determined by many factors such as cost, margin, inventory turnover, restocking lead time and so on. As such, even the same product may give differing points across various batches. While not entirely perfect, the point system is a way for us to achieve the objective of giving customers relevant samples while keeping operational costs low with zero manual intervention on our part.
Only members are able to leave a product review, and even then, you must have purchased the product previously from our website as a member to be able to leave a product review.
Sign in to your account, under the "Account" menu, go to "My Product Reviews" where you will find a list of products that you can review.
We are intentionally restricting the ability of regular users to leave product reviews. This is to keep reviews accurate and relevant. Specifically, we do not wish for users who have not tried the actual products to leave inaccurate reviews or to leave spam information. Similarly, users who have previously purchased a product from an unreliable source may have unknowingly used an ungenuine product, and their reviews will thus be inaccurate as well.
Product reviews are encouraged to provide more information for users like yourself upon which to base their purchasing decisions on. As such, while there is no need to go into great detail, do, however, refrain from vague comments without any elaboration. As a token of our appreciation, your account will be credited with 10 points for each product review. :)
Rest assured that all our products are 100% authentic. We get our products from suppliers in the originating country whom in turn order directly from the brand offices. We offer the payment option of cash-on-collection for people who choose to self-collect their orders from the designated self-collection locations. We strongly encourage you to select this option if you are wary of our products and services, so that you can pay for the order only after you have accepted the products. There is no harm in being too careful when shopping online, and we definitely understand the need for this.
Our prices appear low compared to Singapore retail prices, but they are actually not that far off when compared to prices in the originating country of the relevant products. We get our products from suppliers in the originating countries and we tend to buy in quantities that allow us to get a good discount off the retail price there. Factoring in shipping costs, and a small profit margin for ourselves, we are usually able to price our items similar to the price you would have gotten for yourself had you flown all the way to the originating country to purchase it.
As our discount are always a certain percentage off the originating country retail price, we may at times even be able to price the items cheaper than what it is sold in the originating country if they are high value yet low weight items.
While we have the utmost faith in our suppliers, our responsibility to our customers require that we still check our goods regularly to ensure that no imitation products have been mixed in. For this, we do random checks for every shipment and every product type.
If however, you have any reason to believe that the product you receive is not authentic, contact us immediately and return the product in its original condition and we will offer you a full refund. We understand that imitation products may also look almost identical to the authentic product in terms of packaging. Hence, we do allow a refund in the event that the product has been opened or partially used if it can be shown that the product (not packaging) is indeed different from the store-bought version purchased from the official retail outlet. Comparisons should not be made to other versions bought from non-official sources. Do note that there may be packaging differences as some brands have differing packaging for export items versus those meant for local (Korea) sale. Our items will correspond to those meant for sale within Korea as we import them directly from there instead of via the international subsidiaries.
Products are non-returnable once opened or used unless you have reason to believe that the product is not authentic, in which case we will still offer a refund provided that it can be shown that the product itself (not packaging) is indeed different from the store-bought version purchased from the official retail outlet. Comparisons should not be made to other versions bought from non-official sources.
While the above may seem like a very stringent requirement, we hope for your understanding that we need to guard ourselves against trivial claims. We are fair people, and if your claim is real, we will never dismiss it without proper consideration.
For wrongly delivered items or products with defects, do give us a call and we will be glad to arrange an exchange for you.

Unfortunately, we refrain from providing advice on product recommendation. For that, we have enabled user product reviews so that buyers may base their purchasing decisions on peer reviews. We also keep the product descriptions updated, and these descriptions are those that are provided by the brand companies, so we believe it will adequately cover information on the intended effect and use of the products.
While it seems that such recommendation advice would be an integral part of customer service, and is common in the industry, we have deliberately refrained from doing so due to the following reasons:
We accept credit card via Stripe (similar to PayPal), bank transfer to a POSB Savings account or mobile payment methods like PayNow/DBS PayLah/OCBC Pay Anyone. We also accept cash for people who choose the meet-up option.
We offer a variety of options, meet-ups at Bukit Batok MRT, Jurong East MRT or delivery via normal mail, SingPost SmartPac (Trackable Mail) or Local Courier. For delivery options, please allow an additional 1 working day on top of the expected delivery time for us to process and pack your order.
At Hush, our goal is to bring you all your favourite beauty products at an affordable price. If you would like to see us carry a particular brand or series of products, feel free to drop us an email and if possible, we will try our best to accomodate your request.
