Used cosmetics present some serious health and safety concerns because the products and applicators used to apply them often come into direct contact with the body. This is why we generally don't allow the sale of used cosmetics on eBay.
See the What are the guidelines section for details about what you can and can't sell.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
For more information about the legal requirements on the sale and manufacture of cosmetics in the EU, please have a look at the Cosmetics Directive.
We urge our buyers and sellers to act responsibly and follow all government laws and regulations. Because the sale and manufacture of cosmetics is strictly regulated and since the sale of used cosmetics may cause harm to eBay or its members, we don't allow sellers to list these items unless they meet our specific guidelines.
