To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. If applicable, products must be in original packaging, unopened, unworn and/or with all tags/stickers attached. You will be refunded the full purchase price MINUS the original shipping cost if the previous requirements are met.

All returns/exchanges must be sent back using a method of the buyer’s choice (the buyer is responsible for the cost). It is recommended that the package is insured for the full value of the contents and has a tracking number to ensure delivery. For simplicity we recommend using the same packaging as the product was received. Please ensure that the product is securely packed. We are not responsible for any lost packages/damaged products during return shipping. Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your returned product to reach us may vary.
