Due to the nature of the refill process, all refillable products are non-refundable, and they are not eligible for returns or exchanges.

If you are unsure if a product is right for you, we highly recommend purchasing a sample amount first, so you can try it out before you commit to a larger refill amount.


Any non-refillable store items are returnable for store credit within 14 days, as long as they have not been used.

All thrift items must be returned within 7 days, tags on, no stains.

We are unable to provide returns or refunds on makeup products.
