Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is formulated to target lackluster tone and textural irregularities. The formula, infused with charcoal and clays, aims to enhance the appearance of smoothness and clarity, leaving the skin feeling refreshed. The structure of salicylic acid facilitates its lipophilicity and miscibility with the lipids located on the surface of the skin. It is a suitable ingredient for targeting the removal of dead skin cells on the surface of oily and blemish-prone skin, with the purpose of revealing more radiant skin beneath. Charcoal and clays are ingredients renowned for their deep cleansing abilities due to their porosity and large surface area available for adsorption. They aid the removal of facial impurities that would otherwise remain on the skin surface and clog pores. In comparison to Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is a rinse-off formula. Leave on for no longer than 10 minutes in order to maximize the exfoliating benefits.
Note: While exfoliating acids can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest the use of indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a suggested formula.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should we purchase from you?
We're Australian made and owned :)
We have a love for skincare.
One of the main reasons why we started this business was to ensure that Australians get access to affordable Asian beauty products! We believe everyone should feel beautiful, inside and out. We found the joy in Asian Beauty a few years ago - and while it's not only helped improve our skin and self-esteem consequently, it's definitely one of the favourite part of day, getting to unwind and pamper ourselves!
We run a little differently to other companies. While we love curating products (and will continue to do so), we want to get products that you want! So please, feel free to contact us and let us know what products/ranges you want!
I'm looking for a particular product that you don't have! Can I make a request?
We're very much open to suggestions for beloved products that you want!
We know the struggle of being in Australia and having such limited ranges, expensive overseas shipping, high markups, weak Australian dollar and long wait times (sometimes, we just want instant gratification!).
We're working on curating a larger range of products and would love your help!
Please let us know of any products that you wish to see on the store here. We appreciate any feedback given! Our goal for the store is to listen to you guys.
We can't always guarantee that we'll be able to get the item in, but we'll endeavor to try and get it in.
Why are your products so cheap? Are they authentic?
Yes, they are! We've priced ourselves without extreme high markups - our ultimate goal isn't profit. We want to be sustainable yes, but our goal is to make sure that Australians have access to Asian skincare! We know the struggle of not being able to find a particular product OR finding the product that is crazily marked up AND crazy shipping fees.
We've priced our products reasonably in accordance to the shipping prices it takes to get to us.
We have direct suppliers in Korea and Japan.
When will you ship my order?
All parcels are shipped from Sydney, Australia within 24-72 hours of receiving the order, excluding weekends and public holidays. If there are any delays, we will notify you straight away.
Note: Due to COVID-19, there may be additional delays to the fulfilment of your order. While we are aiming to follow the cut offs below, it is not guaranteed and please allow for an additional 1-2 days.
Generally if you place an order before 8pm, it'll be packed on the same day to be picked up by our couriers the next day. If it isn't, please expect it to be packed within the next 1-3 days after you've placed your order (especially with Krave/Glossier/Peach & Lily products that are high in demand and therefore we get high volumes of orders when we do a release).
We pack all orders from Sunday - Thursday (i.e. if you place an order on Friday, it won't be packed until Sunday to be picked up by our couriers on Monday).
