Why is Korean Beauty so Popular?

Korea is regarded as being at the forefront of skincare due to the technological advancements and ongoing development in the skincare industry. Cost efficient prices and proven results are two factors as to why Korean products are so popular!

I want to purchase an item but it's out of stock. When will it be restocked?
Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, there are now less frequent freight routes between South Korea and Canada. This has caused some delays with our shipments and it may take just a little bit longer to have all your favorite Korean beauty products back in stock.

However, we are doing all that we can to replenish our stock levels as soon as possible.

Will there be an increase in prices?
Please kindly understand that due to an increase in international freight costs, shipping fees as well as an increase in supply prices, there may be a slight price adjustment to some of our products. 

We are trying our best to minimize adjusting any of our prices as much as possible, which is why we have only made an incremental increase to a small selection of our product range. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused, but hope you can understand.

What is your shipping policy?

Please see Shipping & Handling page.

What is your return policy?
Please see refund policy page.

Do you collect sales taxes?
No sales tax for orders in the US.

We collect Canadian tax in accordance with tax laws and regulations mandated by each province.  Tax, if any, will be reflected in your cart at checkout.

Is the product I received expired? Is it date of production or expiration?
Most Korean beauty products are marked with a date of production. 

You can check the characters in front of the dates to be sure:
제조 = Manufactured date
까지 = Open-by date

If your product appears to be expired according to the date stamped on the bottom, this may not be the case! Most K-beauty items are not marked with an expiration date, but a manufacturing date (제조). Skincare products are safe to use within 30 months after manufacture.  After opening, the product will be safe to use within 12 months, after which it should be discarded.

How do I know my product is genuine?
Glad you asked -- At SkinTreats Beauty, we take pride in bringing our customers only the highest quality of Korean beauty. We stand by this promise to do so with every product and this is at the heart of our company.

We are committed to bringing you only authentic, genuine and recently produced products.

What Happens If I Get An Allergic Reaction?

It’s highly recommended that you patch test some of the essence if you are unsure about how your skin will react to products. Everyone’s skin is different and what might cause a reaction on your skin might be absolutely fine on someone else’s skin so unfortunately SkinTreats Beauty does not offer refunds or replacements on any products sold and is not responsible in the case of a reaction. If irritation does occur, please wash off immediately and seek medical advice. Please send us an email if this does occur so we can be aware and put a note for our future curation process.
