You can exchange or return your purchase within 30 days of delivery, completely free of charge. We want to make your online shopping experience hassle-free and fun. Please see below for products excluded from this policy.

It’s important that any unwanted product, unless faulty, is returned in a re-saleable condition. We’d expect this to mean that you’ve kept all original packaging and labels, and that the product is undamaged and unused.
We reserve the right to refuse a return or an exchange if products are returned damaged, or not in a saleable condition.

If an incorrect product is delivered to you by mistake (i.e. it’s not the product you ordered), we’ll arrange to collect the product from you, and we’ll deliver the correct product to you as quickly as possible.
