We give perfectly good and eligible products a chance to be loved.
Every product featured on our website has been sent to us, handpicked by our small team and verified that it meets our eligibility criteria.
Every product is sent to us to be assessed and checked it is in the condition its Seller has said, as well as meeting our eligibility criteria.
Whether unopened or opened, we verify that the product is within its shelf life by checking an expiry date, batch code or asking the seller to confirm when they purchased/received it.
If the product has been opened, we ensure it has at least four months before being outside its period-after opening.
All products are shipped from our warehouse in Grey Lynn, Auckland.
We sell on behalf of anyone in New Zealand who has ended up with perfectly good and eligible but unwanted products!

From our customers
Arrived in perfect condition and super excited to try a brand not easily available in NZ! Love that it was able to get a second life instead of being thrown away!Verified Buyer
I was a bit hesitant to buy this as I tend to gravitate towards the unused items but honestly so happy with this. Great to be able to try a hair product at a reasonable price to test as its often hit and miss for my hair. Highly recommend!Verified Buyer.
Absolutely love buying from Second Skin. Always exciting to see what’s new on the website and when I inevitably find something I want it’s shipped and delivered by the next day even though I’m in the South Island! Thanks so much for this great initiative + great customer serviceVerified Buyer
I was a bit nervous buying such a high-value product over resale but I couldn't be happier. Arrived overnight beautifully packaged and in its original box.Verified Buyer
I had been eyeing up this palette on the brand's website for the longest time, but had never gotten around to actually purchasing it. Lo and behold it was then featured on Second Skin, and at a great price! Couldn't have asked for more!Verified Buyer

Arrived totally brand new in its stunning packaging! Sadly the scent isn’t for me, but it was great to be able to try the product at a reduced price! Cheers!Verified Buyer
