Frequent Questions

WHEN ARE STORES REOPENING?

Our Beacon Hill store is reopening on June 24th, Bethesda and Seattle on July 15. Additional locations will be reopening throughout the summer, depending on local government regulations and team safety. Please check store locations for more information, and follow your local store on Instagram for the most up-to-date information.

WHAT SAFETY MEASURES ARE YOU PUTTING IN PLACE?

The health and safety of our store employees and customers is our top priority. Follain is committed to adhering to and over-delivering on all local state safety and phasing guidelines. New safety measures include: 

  • Limited capacity to facilitate social distancing
  • Required masks for employees and customers
  • Frequent sanitization of surfaces
  • Wellness checks for employees before working
  • Mandatory hand-washing 
  • Discontinued use of shared testers
WILL YOU HAVE IN-STORE PICKUP AVAILABLE?

Yes, we offer in-store pickup. You can order online and select the “Pickup” in checkout, or call, email, or DM your local store directly to place an order, which our store educators will then fulfill.  You will receive a confirmation email when it’s time to pick up. 

Pickup orders will be placed in a designated location for contactless handoff. If you prefer curbside pickup, simply call the store upon arrival and an educator will deliver your order to the trunk of your car.

CAN I REFILL SOAP IN STORES?

Yes, we are happy to refill soap. Please be sure to bring a clean and dry bottle to the store and an educator can help you. You’re welcome to give your bottle and extra rinse in our sink as well! Customers can book a shopping appointment or walk in for a 1:1 experience with an Educator.

IS RECYCLING AVAILABLE?

Yes, we are accepting empty products and will work with Terracycle to recycle responsibly. Educators will not handle products, but customers can place products into Terracycle boxes. Customers receive 100 Clean Points each time they recycle, and there is no limit to how many products you can bring in.

HAVE STORE HOURS CHANGED?

Store hours may vary by location, please check for information on our store page.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SHOP IN STORE?

No. Customers are free to arrive at the store at any time, but please understand that you may be asked to queue if our in-store capacity limits are reached.   Follain’s approach is to make sure that every customer has a personal interaction with an educator, so we can provide a safe experience for you and our store teams. If you’re asked to queue and don’t have time to wait, please make a pickup order to collect at a different time.

HOW DO I TEST OR SAMPLE A PRODUCT?

Products on shelves are for display purposes only. Please do not touch or use products on shelves. Sampling is limited to packets produced by our brand partners, or safely pre-made samples that our educators make with product that remain off the sales floor. Products used in pre-made samples have been ordered after store re-openings. Selection may vary by store.

ARE YOU OFFERING MAKEUP APPOINTMENTS?

In-store makeup services are suspended for the time being, but we are now offering virtual consultations. Please book an appointment and an educator will connect with you digitally.

HOW WILL YOU ENFORCE SOCIAL DISTANCING?

When arriving at the store you will see signs indicating that social distancing is required while in store. Each store has a specific, limited capacity requirement and educators will always be zoned to help adhere to our policy.

ARE CUSTOMERS REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS?

HOW DOES RECYCLING WORK?

We’re proud to offer Terracycle Zero Waste Boxes in all of our stores. Zero Waste Boxes are Terracycle’s solution for hard-to-recycle waste—like product packaging—that cannot be recycled through regular municipal recycling programs. You’ll receive 100 points each time you bring in empty product packaging to recycle, whether it’s a single travel size or an entire bag of full size empties. A purchase during the same visit is required to receive recycling points. If you don’t live near a store, please email help@follain.com and we will assist you in recycling your products. You’ll still receive recycling points as long as you make a qualifying online purchase and reference an order number.

WILL MY POINTS EXPIRE?

Yes, Clean Points expire if you don’t earn, redeem or refer for one calendar year.  Don’t worry, we’ll remind you if you have unused points about to expire.

I CANCELED MY ORDER, WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CLEAN POINTS?

If you cancel your order, you will not earn Clean Points on that purchase and your balance will be updated once the order is completed.  If you redeemed Clean Points on a canceled order, those points will be credited back to your account.

IF I RETURN A PRODUCT, WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CLEAN POINTS?

If you return a product, the points earned from that product purchase will be deducted from your account. If you exchange one product for another, you will receive points for the latter (i.e. the product you exchange for).
