Returns Advice

  1. ▼ Faulty Product

    If you believe your product to be faulty, please firstly refer to the Frequently Asked Questions on our website on the relevant product page. If this does not solve your issue please contact our customer service team straight away. Do not return your item without contacting us first and waiting until we advise you further.

  2. ▼ Returning an Unwanted Product

    If you would like to return your product for any other reason, we are happy to accept returns within 14 days of your order being delivered. Once you have notified us, you have 14 days in which to send the product back to Mathmos and you will need to pay the return shipping costs. For more information on cancelling your order, please see our Terms and Conditions.

    1. Do not return your item without contacting us first. Please contact us within 14 days of your order being delivered by:

Let your lava lamp cool for at least 24 hours prior to moving it and if not all the original packaging is available, use suitable materials such as strong cardboard and bubble-wrap so the product arrives in a like-new condition.
