Returns & Refunds
Because of the intimate nature of the products we sell and for hygienic reasons, once an item leaves our warehouse, they are considered used and cannot be returned unless defective or their original shipping bag/box is unopened.
If the shipping box/bag is unopened you can return your complete order. You will need to take the unopened bag/box you don't want to keep to the carrier and mark it as “Return to Sender”. We do not allow for individual items to be returned when you have ordered multiple products, as we cannot verify whether individual products have been touched or used.
Upon receiving and confirming the unopened shipping bag/box, we will issue a refund excluding the shipping fees regardless whether your order qualified for free shipping. Shipping fees are charged by the carriers and are nonrefundable. For more details, please read our return policy page.
Canada Shipping Information
Unfortunately, we currently don’t ship to Canada as we don’t have a distribution facility in Canada. We are aware that there might be additional customs fees and taxes applicable to your order when it’s shipped from the US. We are hoping to launch our Canadian operations soon.
Shipments to Military Addresses
All US military personnel are considered to reside inside the United States regardless of whether they are stationed in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, or Pacific. Given this standard, there are specific guidelines that you need to follow to deliver an order to a military address:

- For city, select either APO (Army Post Office) or FPO (Fleet Post Office)
- For state, select AA (Armed Forces Americas), AE (Armed Forces Europe & Middle East), or AP (Armed Forces Pacific)
