I can’t access my account, what should I do?
If you’re having difficulty accessing your account, the most likely reason is that your email address and/or password have been entered incorrectly.
Check the spelling of your email address and if you’re still unable to log in, you can request a new password by clicking the relevant link.
This should allow you to access your account and amend the password to that of your choice.
However, please be aware that placing an order does not automatically mean you’re registered as a Sable Beauty ‘user’. You need to complete the account set-up procedure by assigning a password to your email address/username.
When I log in, I can’t view my orders?
Only orders placed after your account has been created will appear in your order history. If you have checked out as a guest you will receive an order summary email, but no account will be created. Contact customer service if you have any queries.
However, if you’ve logged in to place the order and it’s not appearing in your records, please email our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to advise you.
How do I amend my profile?
Once you’ve signed in, you can click ‘my account’ which will enable you to check your orders and make a number of amendments:
- Check the delivery status/tracking information for your most recent purchase.
- View your order history and wishlist.
- View any product subscriptions you have running.
- Check the credit level on any Gift Cards or store credits.
- Read any product reviews you’ve left.
- Edit your email address/password settings.
- Update your profile (display name, age range, occupation, region, newsletter subscriptions).
How can I re-set my password?
If you’re registered with a relevant email address (one without any misspellings) you can simply click ‘forgotten your password?’ on the sign in page.
A new password will be automatically triggered and emailed to the address you provided.
If the problem persists, please contact a member of our customer service team, who will be able to manually re-set your password, in turn allowing you access to your account.
Which methods of payment do you accept?
We accept payment via all major credit and debit cards, and through PayPal. Below is a list of accepted methods of payment:
I haven’t received an order confirmation, was my order successful?
An email confirmation is automatically triggered upon order completion; however there are a number of reasons why you haven’t received one.
If you’ve made a mistake when submitting your email address
The confirmation may have been blocked by your spam filter so check your Junk folder.
There may have been a ‘time-out’ issue at checkout or a dropped internet connection, which prevented the order from being successfully triggered.
If you have an account, you can log in and check your order history to see if the order is listed. Otherwise, contact our customer service team who will be able to confirm the payment/order status.
My browser timed out, was the order accepted?
Usually ‘time-out’ issues result in an order being unsuccessful. If you see a ‘404’ error message or are concerned that payment wasn’t processed properly, please email email@example.com and a member of our team will respond within 24 business hours, or call 020 7229 2789 (10am-6pm GMT).
My order hasn’t arrived.

My order arrived damaged.
We want all of our orders to reach their destinations in perfect condition.

Please retain the product and packaging until the issue has been resolved.
Please send relevant images to email@example.com so we can arrange prompt dispatch of a duplicate item if necessary.
My order arrived incomplete.
Our warehouse team are incredibly conscientious but occasionally mistakes do happen. If an item is missing (and you weren’t made aware of a stock shortage) or you’ve received something other than you were expecting, please make our customer service team aware of any issues as soon as possible; attaching photographs if relevant.
For missing items, we will verify with the warehouse and arrange dispatch of the relevant product as quickly as we possibly can.
If we’ve sent you a product in error, we ask that you email a photograph showing what you’ve received (if possible) so we can make the appropriate arrangements.

I’ve received the wrong product, how do I get the right one?
If we’ve mistakenly sent you something other than what you ordered, please contact our customer service team firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you receive your parcel, together with relevant photographs if possible.
Photographs help us to react quickly to any order issues, as well as to substantiate any claim we may need to lodge.
I’ve suffered a reaction to a product, can I send it back?
If a product is defective, or you suffer an adverse reaction, please stop using the product immediately and contact our customer service team.
Please be aware that in both instances we cannot accept responsibility and may refer you to the manufacturer, requesting that you deal with them directly.
We will however, do our best to resolve any issues you may have as efficiently as we possibly can.
Do you offer samples?
We offer a selection of samples. These are subject to availability, but we understand that it is really important to try a product before committing to buying it.
Some of our smaller, more niche brands do not make samples because of the expensive production costs, but wherever they do we endeavour to offer them to our customers.
How do I post a product review?
If you’d like to review a product navigate to its product details page and click on the reviews link (top right). If you are not logged into your account you will be guided to do so and then taken back to the review section of the product details page.
You can award a star rating and leave your chosen feedback, but please be aware that reviews are moderated prior to being made live. We will edit any misuse of language and may modify spelling/grammar where appropriate.
