Incomplete or Insufficient address Issue

Please make sure shipping address is typed-in correctly - check it TWICE.  If package is returned to the Skin18 (sender) because of an incomplete or insufficient address, Skin18 will NOT be responsible on any return / refund / resend.  Please understand as Skin18 needs to pay additional shipping fee in order to get back the package, the only solution is to place order and repay again.  If there are chances where Skin18 can get back package without having to pay for any additional postage fees, we can resend package but customer has to pay for the "second" time shipping fee.
