Our Returns & Refunds Policy details how we process your returns and the circumstances in which a store credit or a refund is issued.

We would love nothing more than for you to be happy with your purchase but understand that sometimes item/s are returned due to change of mind or due to being defective.

As a consumer, you are entitled to certain guarantees in respect of goods and services purchased from us. These guarantees are called Consumer Guarantees and are not impacted by the change of mind policy or limited by a defined time frame. The Australian Consumer Law, however, does recognise that the relevant period may vary by product depending on the nature of the goods, the price paid, and any representations made about the goods.

Our policy, including the change of mind limits, does not exclude or replace your rights under Consumer Guarantees of the Australian Consumer Law, regulations, or otherwise as required by law.

Please note, that where our system has flagged your transaction as fraudulent, or where we suspect a fraudulent activity (i.e. placing an order, then not collecting it or keeping the order but requesting a chargeback) we may not process a refund as per our general time frame. We will request further proof of your identity including your driver's licence, further communication with your payment provider, or any other information we deem relevant. 

Change of Mind Returns

You will receive a store credit only if the returned items satisfy the conditions listed in this Return Policy.

Can I return an item/items due to a Change of Mind?

Yes, but conditions apply.

We will accept returns on some of our products* provided they are posted back to us within 10 business days from the date you have received your parcel.**

*The following products cannot be returned due to change of mind: cosmetics, food and beverages, wellness products, fragrances, eye-wear, underwear, period underwear, menstrual cups, reusable sanitary pads, medicinal products or vitamins, feminine hygiene products, razors, sale or clearance products or gift cards.

** To ensure a product is not exposed to conditions that might impact its quality and future resale.

Can I return an item bought on sale due to a Change of Mind?

We are unable to accept returns on sale and clearance items if you change your mind unless product is faulty.

We do not accept a change of mind on a product marked as sale/clearance at the time of purchase if a product has been tampered with by any means.

How do I return an item if I have changed my mind about it?

A. You must notify us first before sending item/s back to us by filling out this form.

B. The item/items must be:

  1. In the same condition as purchased;
  2. Unused;
  3. Unopened;
  4. With the seal intact (where applicable); and
  5. Not tempered with by any means.

All the above conditions need to be met before a store credit can be issued.

All return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer alone. We do not refund the original postage costs or return postage costs for a change of mind, nor do we offer store credits instead of the original postage cost.

If you would like the returned item/s replaced, the additional shipping costs will be charged to you. Goods must be returned before a replacement is dispatched so please get in touch with us first.

If a product being returned was part of a bundle offer, all items within the bundle must also be returned as per the conditions listed above or the value of the unreturned items will be deducted from any available refund.

If a product you wish to return is purchased with a gift or bonus offer, the gift or bonus must also be returned, unless otherwise stated by us. If you are unable to return the gift or bonus or it is not in the conditions listed above, the value of any available refund will be reduced by the value of the gift or bonus, in full or in part.

If your parcel is returned to us, because you failed to collect the parcel within the specific time frame, we will treat it as a change of mind. As such, there are two options available to you:

1. Re-posting the parcel back to you - You will be charged for a new postage cost, even if your original order qualified for free postage, or

2. You will be issued a store credit (value of the products purchased, excluding postage costs if the order qualifies for free shipping).
