Is this truly the method to treating these little monsters? What's the proper course of action? We investigate: Experts say that popping a blister is acceptable. If it has reached a point where it is too painful, then releasing that pressure is the way to go. However, there are some precautions to take when popping. Make Sure It's a Blister  It could be a lesion or a wart, so take a close look. If it's filled with fluid and not too firm to the touch, it is a blister. If it's firmer and hurts to touch, it could be a wart or another type of lesion which requires a doctors inspection. Keep It Sterile  Make sure the area around the skin is clean and your popping tool of chose is completely sterile. This will prevent any sort of infection. A needle or pin can be sterilized in rubbing alcohol or by holding the tip over a flame for about 2 seconds. After, you have punctured the blister and drained the fluid, dab rubbing alcohol over the skin for extra precaution. This may sting.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
