We will also take back any Emma Lewisham jars, bottles, lids, pumps and droppers for products that you no longer use.

FAQ’s

Why can’t I put them in curb side recycling? Arrow

Contrary to common belief, most beauty containers are not curbside recyclable. We want your empty products and pods back so that we can sterilise and reuse them, or ensure that any non-reusable components are properly recycled.

Is there anything I need to do before returning? Arrow

We would appreciate it if you could remove any excess product from the empties you are returning – the pods are dishwasher safe, so you can just put them in the dishwasher or hand wash them.

What happens to them after you receive them back? Arrow

The refill pods are sterilised, refilled and kept in circulation. Using refill pods over and over again means we can save on the energy, water and carbon emissions that are involved in producing a new one. If a refill pod is damaged, we ensure it is correctly recycled with a specialty recycling partner.

Can I get Beauty Circle Reward points for returning? Arrow

Yes, in New Zealand and the UK, we will give you 50 points for every empty pod or pouch you send us back. Simply return your pods and pouches using our free 'Beauty Circle Returns Label' that you can select in the Emma Lewisham Checkout Cart. Within two weeks of each month, we count all returned pods and pouches and issue the reward points.

Please expect a delay between when you send your pods back and when points are issued.

Unfortunately, if you return your pod to a retail partner we cannot match this to your Beauty Circle Rewards account.

Please note, we only award points for our refill pod and pouches when they’re returned, not our jars and bottles. This gives you more opportunity to collect points, as our jars and bottles are designed to be kept and used long-term.
