Shipping & taxes
New shipping option: we now offer Express Post to the US and Canada (see below for more details).
Please allow 2-3 business days for processing and handling of your order before calculating shipping time. This includes express post orders, as express post only includes shipping and doesn't include processing and handling time.
Skin Friend is an Australian company based on the Gold Coast and we ship world-wide to most countries. We post products on Monday to Thursday (closed on Friday).
If you live in Australia please visit our Australian website here to order. Note our Australian website includes GST in the price, so be assured that the pricing is the same as the international website (where GST was added during check out), you just see the whole cost up front.
International Shipping (standard post)
International orders are not charged taxes. But if you live in Canada or the UK read about possible customs charges, below.
We charge for international shipping at a discounted international shipping price of AU $16 per order (it costs us between $20 to $30 for shipping and packaging, depending on weight). We do not charge you for the extra costs or packaging materials.
We ship to most countries worldwide but we do not ship to some countries that do not have Pack and Track International (see below for the list of countries).
Once an order leaves Australia, it may not be tracked by Australia Post. You will need to go to your own country's official Post site and track your order there.
For example, US orders will need to go to the USPS tracking website, UK order to Royal Mail tracking and so on.
While your package is in Australia, you can track your parcel via the Australia Post website once you receive your tracking number from us.
