Why Society Needs to Stop Telling Women They "Need" Makeup

May 27, 2015 2 min read

From beauty gurus on Youtube to the barrage of celebs like Kim Kardashian who contour and false eyelash to get a "gorgeous" look...makeup is projected onto girls as just part of being female. Not that there is anything wrong with wearing makeup. I admire the artistry of cosmetics experts who can create dazzling masterpieces out of their faces. It does truly take talent! But whether or not makeup is your "thing" really shouldn't matter. We now see women who choose to "bare" their "naked" faces as gutsy. Like they are some sort of superheroes! How does she have the confidence to show how her face really looks? And on a magazine cover?! While women who love makeup are often seen as looking to alter their natural appearance. They are looked upon as having poor self esteem and are hiding behind their mascara and concealer. Then comes in the strange implications that men want a woman who has natural beauty, and wouldn't want a girl who likes to "cover up". It seems like no woman can win. Whether you love cosmetics and own a vanity of gorgeous products, or you simply like to face the world shower fresh and ready to go, it shouldn't matter. No one needs to wear makeup, and no one needs to not wear makeup. Society shouldn't judge you on your choices! I'm fascinated by makeup and love Sephora, but most days I choose a minimal routine. I'm confident enough in my own skin to like my face both ways. Nothing wrong with that! Do you love makeup? Do you love a bare faced look? Let us know your thoughts!

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.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
