In the Edit Cart screen, you'll see a link that says " Shipping Estimate" - just click "Estimate" and input your country and zip code to see an accurate estimate for that order. Shipping and handling fees are based on order weight and shipping distance. Each U.S. order includes a $1.50 handling charge for 1st class mail, $2.40 for parcel post & $2.40 for priority mail.

- FPO/APO Military Base Addresses: How do I fill out the online address form correctly?
The Dept of Defense (DoD) requests that you use the servicemember’s full name (with or without grade, rank, or rating). The unit designation and APO/FPO address with the nine-digit ZIP Code is also required. When filling out the shipping address online, type either APO [Air/Army Post Office] or FPO [Fleet Post Office] in the City blank and select the appropriate military state code from our State/Province drop down menu (AA [Armed Forces Americas], AE [Armed Forces Europe / Canada / Middle East / Africa], or AP [Armed Forces Pacific]). Make sure the shipping Country is set to: United States. Do not use the base camp’s actual city or country, as it might be routed through the host country’s mail system.

- Tarrif/Duty Fees (Only applicable to International orders): Tariff or duty fees are taxes levied by the receiving country's government. Our shipping prices do not include import taxes or custom fees. These fees (if applicable) are applied to your shipment when it reaches the destination country. Unfortunately, we cannot estimate import taxes or custom fees due to rate fluctuations. All import taxes and custom fees are the responsibility of the customer. Please contact your local Customs office for details on how charges are applied in your location. Depending on the delivery area, your local post office may (at their discretion) deliver your package directly to the shipping address you provide, or they may send a notice for pick-up. International governments will collect the appropriate taxes and fees from you (either before or after delivery). Pure Complexions does not refund shipping fees for customers that refuse delivery. If orders are refused by customer or rejected at Customs, customers are responsible for the return shipping costs, as well as any outstanding duties, fees, tariffs or taxes.
- Delivery Confirmation: We provide free delivery confirmation on all USPS shipments. Once your order is ready to ship, we will send you a tracking number via email.
- Shipping Insurance:
- U.S. Orders: We automatically insure all U.S. shipments (no charge for you).
- International Orders: Effective 1-26-08 we will no longer automatically insure International orders. Shipping insurance is available for purchase for all Priority and Express Mail International orders during checkout. Pure Complexions is not responsible for international orders that are lost or rejected at customs. Due to a higher rate of "lost" international orders, we highly recommend that you select an insured international shipping option.
- Shipping Materials: We use recyclable shipping supplies and reuse all packaging materials from our stock shipments.
- Shipping Speeds: We post the average shipping speeds provided by USPS on our website. The US Post Office only guarantees shipping speeds for Domestic (U.S.A) Express Mail International shipments. All other listed shipping speeds are averages and are not guaranteed. International orders may experience delays (outside of the average transit times) when they arrive at the destination country's Customs office. USPS is not responsible for Customs delays.
