I've found an item cheaper on another site - do you price match?
JML has an everyday low pricing policy and we always keep a close eye on other retailers and online shopping sites to ensure our prices are always competitive. It is inevitable, however, that in such a dynamic market as the internet, there will be some shopping sites promoting JML products cheaper than we do, as well as some sites which sell JML products for more than we do.
We cannot always price match, but we can guarantee that you will always receive genuine JML products, along with specialised product-specific customer service and a free 30-day money back guarantee with every purchase.
After you’ve completed checkout, you’ll be sent an email to confirm that we have received your order. Within 48 hours you should receive a second email, to confirm that your order has been prepared and made ready for dispatch.
On the top right corner of the page you should be able to see a Login/Register link. Click on the link and you will be invited to create an account, if you do not already have one. Your username will be the same as your email address; you will then need to create a password.
If you forget your password, don’t worry, we can email it you. On the Login/Register page, just right of the password box, you’ll see a “Forgotten Password?” link. Click on it, and enter your email address on the next page. An email will be sent to your address with your password details.

When is payment charged to my credit or debit card?
As soon as you have finished placing your order your card is pre-authorised. We don’t actually take payment until your order has been dispatched and is on its way to you. If, for whatever reason, your order cannot be dispatched immediately, we will not take payment until it is actually ready to send to you.
If you are a regular customer, you can choose for us to save your card and debit card details. This will make it much quicker for you to purchase items in the future. However, if you choose not to have your card details saved, they will be deleted once your transaction has been completed.
What do I do if I have a promotional code or a gift voucher code?
If you have a gift certificate or a promo code, you can enter it just below your order summary on the Shopping Basket page. Alternatively, you can enter it on the Payment page, just before you enter your card details.
If I have a gift voucher, do I have to spend the full amount on one single transaction?
No, if you don’t spend the full amount of your gift voucher in one single transaction, any remaining voucher credit will be stored on your account. The remaining credit will automatically be deducted from your next purchase. You can check your gift voucher credit any time by logging into your account.

Express delivery is not available for the Republic of Ireland.
Although a number of JML products are available worldwide, we regret that we cannot currently post orders to international destinations. Customers in Germany can, however, order products through our German website.
If you are not able to sign for your order when it arrives, the courier will put a delivery card through your letterbox, which will include details on how to rearrange delivery, or where you can collect your order in person.
If the order is not delivered, or collected in person, it will be returned to JML.
If for whatever reason you are unhappy with your purchase, we can provide a refund under the terms of our 30-day refund policy. However, you must keep all the product packaging, including the instructions and the product must be returned in a saleable condition. Please re-pack your item, along with the dispatch note. This will help us to process your order. And please post it back to us. Please also note that returns for cosmetics are only accepted within 30 days for a full refund if they are unopened/sealed and not used.
Nothing in our 30-day returns policy or this section affects your statutory rights. For example, you have a right to claim a repair or replacement of goods for up to 6 years from the date of purchase (5 years in Scotland) if your goods were not of satisfactory quality or fit for their purpose on the date of purchase. If you make a claim during the first 6 months, and we reject it, it's up to us to prove the goods were of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose at time of sale. After 6 months, it's up to you to show that the product had a fault or defect when it was sold. If you ordered via telephone or internet you have the right under distance selling regulations to cancel your order and receive a refund for home delivered items under our JML Guarantee of 30-day returns policy.
What should I do if I have received damaged or incomplete goods?
If you are cancelling because there is a fault with the product, clearly state the details of the fault. We will meet the cost of returning the product or products to us if the goods are faulty or incorrect. For all other cancellations, you must return the goods to us at your cost.
