Friendly Helpful Customer Service team who use the products themselves
Unlike some remote call centre who work from call flows, Jo and her fantastic team, Ness, Paula, Kirstin & Erika ALL have all used our pants & pads for some years. They love to talk pee, poo and periods and are all massive over-sharers! That makes them experts in reusables. They're really happy to give you tailored advice to help you make the switch:
You'll receive detailed, bespoke advice based on the answers you provided and they're happy to help answer any questions you might have, just drop them a line.
Once you've received your order from us, the assistance doesn't end there. If something goes wrong, or doesn't work as you expected, they'll sort it out without question. We're so confident that you'll love our products and service that you can try them without risk for 90 days and if you don't love them you'll get your money back.
We've earned our 5 star rating on Trustpilot for a reason!
Free delivery on orders over £15, next day delivery from £2.99
We understand that many people would prefer to support smaller businesses but they also can't afford to pay unnecessary delivery charges, especially on small orders.
Bearing this in mind, our 'free postage' now kicks in on orders over £15, so the majority of orders will qualify for free shipping. These will be dispatched via Royal Mail Tracked 48 service, so choosing this delivery option means that customers will receive their order between 3 and 5 working days after they place it.
Why aren't Royal Mail Tracked 48 orders received within 48 hours?
We appreciate that this might seem a little confusing. But because we aren't an enormous company like Amazon, our staff are mostly parents who want to spend time with their family over the weekend. Order late on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday your order will be dispatched on Monday or Tuesday as the warehouse closes at the weekend. Order on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and your order will usually be dispatched the next working day at the latest, for delivery two days after that.
What happens if we really need next day delivery?
No problem! We can prioritise handling and dispatch for a small fee:
- £2.99 for Royal Mail Tracked 24 & priority handling (order before 2pm for same day dispatch)
- £4.99 for DPD next day delivery & priority handling (order before 11am for same day dispatch)
Best prices and brilliant monthly offers by buying directly
For Cheeky Pants to sell on Amazon incurs substantial incremental costs for our business. More than 50% of every £1 that you spend goes towards Amazon charges & fees that amazon sellers are liable for on each product sold.
That's one reason why we're winding down our selection of period pants and reusable sanitary pads which are available on Amazon.
In addition, we offer the best prices and some cracking deals monthly on cheekypants.com, which are exclusive offers for our own customers. Why spend more at Amazon?
Cheeky Wipes - an ethical, sustainable independent business
We take sustainability seriously at Cheeky Pants. This was recognised in April 2021 when we were awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise for Sustainable development.
However it's not just sustainability that we take seriously. We're a Sussex based business who pay our staff a fair salary, well above the National Living Wage.
We believe that all companies selling in the UK have a corporate responsibility to pay a fair amount of tax too, and we pay all out Corporation tax and VAT annually. It's not right that an enormous company like Amazon UK paid just £3.8m more corporation tax in 2020 than in 2019, even as sales increased by more than £1.89bn.
We appreciate that company ethics might not be at the top of your agenda when buying online however set alongside all the other benefits of buying directly listed above, you can shop from Cheeky Pants knowing you're buying ethically from a business with clear and transparent supply chains.
Jeff Bezos doesn't need more money to blow on vanity projects....

I can't be the only person to see that blasting off into space on a rocket isn't just extremely phallic looking, but is without a doubt the best example of a mid-life crisis purchase we've seen for a long time...
All jokes aside, hopefully this has given you good reasons to consider breaking your Amazon habit. We totally get that it's an easy 1 click option, but you'll receive many more benefits by buying directly.
