MULTIPLE PROMOTION CODES ON A SINGLE PRODUCT OR ORDER

Our website can only apply one promotional code per single order. Promotional codes are unable to be used in conjunction with other promotional codes on the same order.

EXPIRATION DATE

We realize the dates on our products can be confusing. Some products have the expiration date printed on the packaging while others have the manufacturing date printed.  For the products on our site which have the manufacturing date (as is often the case with Korean cosmetics) the date is usually followed by the word “제조,” which, in English, means “manufacture.” Products typically have a shelf-life of two to three years.

If you are still unsure about the date on your product, feel free to contact us.

LIFE OF THE PRODUCT AFTER OPENING

A symbol introduced by the industry in conjunction with European Union guidelines recommends the length of time a product remains usable after opening. This period is referred to as the ‘period after opening’ (PAO). The period is given as a number of months and is marked with a letter ‘M’ under or within the ‘open jar’ symbol. When a PAO symbol is required this will appear on the product itself and on the outside packaging.

In practice, most cosmetic and personal care products are formulated to ensure that they are safe to use and have a shelf-life which far exceeds the normal time it would take to use the product up.

Some useful tips:

  • Keep lids on products when not in use and use the product within the recommended time
  • Avoid storing your products in the direct sunlight or near sources of heat and chose dry, cool (but not freezing) storage areas where possible
  • Apply cosmetics with clean hands or an applicator and routinely wash all applicators thoroughly with soap, detergent or a mild shampoo
  • Allow applicators to dry thoroughly before use
