Please follow Mathmos' 5 Step Returns Procedure;

1.Contact Us

You must contact us by email within 14 days before returning your product; let us know your name, the product for return, the order number and your email address. We will send you a returns label to an address in your country. 


2. Return Form: fill in, cut out and include in your package

Name Order ID Product name Reason for return or refund

3. Pack the Product Securely:

All returns must be in resalable condition (in their original packaging, unused and securely packaged). Make sure you place the Returns Advice From above in the package. If the product is not returned to us in fully resalable condition, we may refuse or reduce the refund on the item.

  • Allow your lava lamp to cool for at least 24 hours before packing it (if you have turned it on to see the colour).
  • Use as much as possible of the original packaging. If parts of the internal packaging are damaged use appropriate packing materials such as strong cardboard and bubble-wrap.
  • Protect the plug pins with a suitable material such as bubble wrap or newspaper.
  • Protective material should be wrapped around the base and cap to protect them from scratching, the lead can then be wrapped around the outside of the base.
  • Remember lava lamps are made of glass so must be packed very securely. 

4. Send Your Product Back:

You will be sent instructions on how to do this when we send you the shipping label. Mathmos does not accept responsibility for goods which are lost or damaged in transit, so we recommend you pack your items securely and keep your proof of postage.

5. Refund Processed by Mathmos :

All refunds will be processed within 2 weeks of the item being received at our factory; most will be processed in 3 - 5 days. If you have not received your refund within 2 weeks, please contact us at returns@mathmos.com with tracking information for the return so we can investigate.

NB. We are only able to refund items brought directly from Mathmos. Mathmos products purchased from other retailers should be returned directly to the retailer.
