INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE
We have made every effort to reproduce colours on our website as accurately as possible. However, different computers and mobile devices reproduce colours in slightly different ways, and so exact colour matches are not yet possible over the Internet. This means that when you order products from our website, colours may differ from what you see on the screen. If you are not satisfied with the colour of the item you have ordered, we operate a returns policy (see our ‘Returns and Refunds’ page for more information).
OFFERS AND PROMOTIONS
Where we refer to 'bestselling' products on lizearle.com, it is based on the number of products sold online during the last 7 days. Where a product is labelled 'bestselling', it means its sales have exceeded all others in the particular product list or search field it features in. A 'top-rated product' is a product with the highest star rating based on ratings and reviews made by our customers. Our 'new products' highlight the most recently launched products on lizearle.com. Our 'featured products' are those we have chosen to highlight and 'our favourite' products are ‘our favourites’ out of those sold on lizearle.com.
