International Delivery.



All products are shipped from the United Kingdom. As the United Kingdom has now left the European

Union it has meant an end to the free trade agreement as we know it. Meaning our customers that live within

the EU will have duties and taxes to pay on top of their purchase, these will not be part of your Ralph &

Mimi invoice and are to be paid by you upon entry of your destination country. 


Rest Of The World

It is important to note that you may have to pay customs duties and taxes on the items you purchase with us

and that these local fees are not included in your Ralph & Mimi invoice. Ralph & Mimi are unable to predict

these charges and we recommend contacting your local importing office. However, places like USA have a

threshold of $800 and Australia of $1000 before anything needs to be paid. We would advise splitting your

order if you are going to go over these thresholds.  


Items that cannot be shipped outside of the UK

Currently with the EU shipping restrictions that have been put in place, sales of Beauty and Grooming

products have been blocked. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

delivery partners by you the customer. For example is instructions are left requesting a parcel to be left in a

safe place like a garage, neighbour or shed, we cannot accept responsibility if you do not receive your goods.

Your order is insured in the unlikely event that your parcel is lost/damaged or stolen whilst in transit and in

the care of the couriers. However, once the parcel has been delivered or signed for then it is no longer covered

within that agreement and the responsibility of the parcel and the contents within the parcel falls to the

Faulted Or Defected Items.

If your item is damaged or has a manufacturing fault we will potentially offer you either a repair or an

exchange. In these cases you will need to return you item for assessment. Contact us at for further information regarding these kinds if returns.


Please be aware that goods will only be classified as faulty if they have been either received damaged or where

a genuine manufacturing fault happens within six months following your purchase. Items damaged as a result

of wear and tear are not considered to be faulty and will not be accepted. Ralph & Mimi do not accept

responsibility for damaged items or faults that have occurred after the six month period. Sometimes we are

able to contact the manufacturers to help resolve the issue but this is dealt with case by case and no

guarantees are made.


Once we have received your item a member of our customer care team will then inspect the item to establish

the potential cause of the fault and to decide whether you are entitled to a full refund, exchange or a repair.

We may need to speak to our brands in order to establish this.


If you item is able to be repaired either by us or by the manufacturer it may take up to 6 weeks if the item

needs to be sent back to the manufacturer for repair. If exchange is offered but we no longer have the stock to

offer such an exchange a full refund will be offered instead.
