No changes can be made to an order once it has been submitted. Please make sure all information is accurate prior to placing your order. SLMD Skincare is not responsible for any packages sent to incorrect locations.

The best way to access your tracking number and track your order is to log into your account. There, you can view your orders and order number. Your order number will also be in your order confirmation email.

If you don’t have an account, you can enter your email and tracking number on this page to get the latest update on your shipment.

If you’ve received a confirmation that your order is on it’s way but no tracking number, there’s nothing to worry about — it usually takes 1-2 days for tracking information to be assigned and posted to your account.

If you didn’t receive a confirmation e-mail, we recommend that you first check your credit card statement, PayPal account or bank account to make sure the order was processed. If you don’t see a charge from us then your order most likely didn’t go through and you simply need to place a new order.

Sometimes spelling errors or typos in an email address can lead confirmation emails to go to the wrong place. If you haven’t received any email communications from SLMD Skincare, try logging into your account and double checking your email address by editing your account info. If you have problems logging in, please contact customer service via this contact form and we’ll make sure to address the problem for you.

Tracking numbers are sent as soon as your order leaves our warehouse, and orders are typically shipped out 1 to 2 business days (excluding holidays) after they've been placed. If it's been a few days and you still haven’t received your tracking number, please log in to your account to see if the number has posted there. If it hasn’t, you can contact customer service via this contact form and they will investigate for you.

We accept returns of unused, unopened merchandise within 60 days of the original purchase. For full details about making returns, please see our shipping and returns page.

Please note that the only additional authorized retailer for SLMD Skincare is Target, and Target.com. Please be aware that if you purchase any SLMD Skincare products from any unauthorized sellers (such as eBay and Amazon) we cannot confirm the validity of these products and thus cannot take any responsibility for any issues that may occur.

We’re sorry to hear that you are experiencing irritation from our products. Because our treatments contain active ingredients that your skin may need to adjust to, some redness or sensitivity initially may be normal. If you feel that your sensitivity has been prolonged or is sticking around, we recommend that you start to use the products every other day (in particular the BP Lotion and Retinol Serum) until your irritation/discomfort improves. If cutting back on daily use doesn’t help and your conditions do not improve or continue to worsen, it may be best to stop using your products. If you find that the BP Lotion in particular is causing irritation, we’d recommend switching to our Sulfur Lotion, which is part of the Sensitive Skin Acne System, both of which were specifically designed for sensitive skin.

We are exclusively at all Target stores nationwide.

Billing & Payments

We accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Afterpay for orders over $65, and Apple Pay on compatible devices.

Using Our Products

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult with your physician before using SLMD Skincare products.

SLMD Skincare products were designed to help people of all ages and skin types. We recommend that children under the age of 12 be consulted first by a paediatrician.

SLMD Skincare Systems are formulated to complement each other for the best results but it is possible to use in conjunction with other anti-blemish products/medications.

If you are on any prescription topical and/or oral medications, we ask that you consult your physician prior to using SLMD Skincare.

SLMD facial products like the Acne System and Sensitive Skin Acne System are formulated with ingredient levels that are to be used on the face. However, we cannot guarantee that our facial products will be compatible or effective on the body. Please use discretion and patch test to ensure a reaction does not occur. If you are experiencing any reaction symptoms, discontinue use immediately. We do offer body specific products and systems such as the Body Acne System and Body Smoothing System.

Our body products are formulated specifically for use on the body, with higher concentrations of active ingredients, so we do not recommend using them on your face.

We recommend that you consult your physician prior to using SLMD Skincare products if you have any of these skin conditions.

Yes, SLMD Skincare products are safe to use if you have melasma. However, it is absolutely imperative to use sun protection whether you are using SLMD Skincare products or not! Ingredients such as retinol can make the skin especially sensitive to the sun and can, therefore, result in even darker spots if sun protection is dismissed.

The SLMD Skincare Blemish-Prone Skin System contains products that are formulated to treat all types of blemishes!

Yes! For those with sensitive skin, we encourage you to try the Sensitive Skin Acne System — a special set that works hard to fight acne for even the most sensitive skin types.

For dry skin, both the SLMD Facial Moisturizer and Dual Defender SPF30 are lightweight formulas that will help nourish and moisturize your skin. For skin that is extra dehydrated, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, formulated with Squalane, quickly restores hydration deep within skin.

While some people see results within the first few weeks, others may not start seeing results until the 6-8 week mark. This can be completely normal as your skin is adjusting to new products. However, it is hard to predict what will be the case for you because everyone is different. We recommend giving any new skincare routine at least one month before deciding whether it is the right regimen for you.

Benzoyl Peroxide is an active ingredient used in many of our acne formulas, and it is known to bleach dyed fabrics. BP Lotion is designed to be used during the day to prevent contact with bedding and sheets. We recommend that any Benzoyl Peroxide wash products are thoroughly rinsed off.

SLMD is designed to be simple to use. We have put together the following general guide that outlines where each SLMD product would be used with each other.

FOR THE FACE:

  • Cleanse with a face wash (Salicylic Acid Cleanser)
  • Tone (Resurfacing Acne Swipes)
  • Treat (BP Lotion, Sulfur Lotion, Retinol Serum (nighttime only))
  • Serum (Hyaluronic Acid Serum)
  • Moisturize (Facial Moisturizer, Dual Defender SPF30)
  • Target (Salicylic Acid Spot Treatment, BP Spot Treatment)
  • Sunscreen (Dual Defender SPF30)

FOR THE BODY:

  • Cleanse/exfoliate (BP Body Wash, Glycolic Acid Body Scrub)
  • Treat (Salicylic Acid Body Spray)
  • Moisturize (Glycolic Acid Body Lotion)

Skinterest Rewards

Skinterest Rewards is our loyalty program designed to give you exclusive offerings and additional perks for being a loyal member of our Skinterest Rewards community! Once you become a loyalty member, you will be able to earn points on every purchase and redeem them in one of two ways: either money off your purchase, or in exchange for full-size product. Plus, there's additional ways to earn points on other activities, such as for referrals, following us on social media, and on your birthday!

Our rewards program is a tiered program that allows members to earn more perks the more they engage with us. Members receive rewards points for each purchase, that can then be redeemed towards the cost of future purchases or products. You also earn points for sharing with friends, following us on social media, and are even gifted with bonus points just for having a birthday! In addition to earning points, members have the chance to earn early access to sales, exclusive previews of new product, and free shipping. You can view the full list of perks on our rewards page here.

Simply create an account here. It’s free to join and you will automatically be signed up to receive emails with insider access to sales, promotions, and all of our newest drops. If you currently have an account with us, you’ve already been enrolled in our rewards program so you can kick back, sign in, and start earning points!

We took care of that for you! All customers with an active account were automatically enrolled in our rewards program.

Contact customer service by emailing service@slmdskincare.com or using contact form here and our team will be happy to assist you with merging your accounts.

Yes! Any orders placed since the launch of Skinterest Rewards (after November 1, 2021) will be available for you to collect. Orders placed prior to 11/1/21 are not eligible for points. If you placed an order without having an account, all you need to do is create an account and the points will be applied.

You must log in first and you can find your status, points, and perks by going to the rewards page.

Exchanging your points for great rewards couldn't be easier! Simply log in and visit the rewards page to view all of our great reward options and click the 'Redeem' button to redeem your chosen reward. You can also redeem your points at checkout. Select how many points you would like to apply to your order at checkout for $ off your order. *You must have a minimum balance of at least 100 points each time you would like to make a redemption, and points must be redeemed in increments of $5.

Every 100 points = $5. If you're in one of our higher tiers, you'll earn points faster on each purchase with a 1.25x multiplier and 1.5x multiplier. Points can also be redeemed in $5 increments.

For starters: each member gets a reward just for joining our rewards program. Aside from earning points through purchases, you can add your birthday to your account to earn points, refer a friend or like us on social media. Access all the ways to earn under the rewards page.

The higher your tier, the more benefits you’ll unlock! Skinterest Rewards members have three different tiers: Skindividual, Skinsider, and Skinfluencer. When you sign up, you’ll automatically start as a part of the Skindividual tier. You’ll be able to level up to the next tier when you spend and earn a certain point threshold: Skindividual (0 points), Skinsider (250 points), Skinfluencer (600 points). With each tier, you’ll also unlock new benefits and perks, plus exclusive discounts and opportunities! Your tier status term is based on rolling year (12 month period once you reach a tier status).

Rewards points will expire after one year of inactivity. Inactivity includes not interacting with our program i.e., redeeming points, placing an order, etc.

Once you are in Skinsider or Skinfluencer status, you will be in that tier for one year from the date you unlocked it. Make sure to keep interacting with our program to maintain your status (or even move up a tier).

Nope! That’s the best part about being a Skinterest Rewards member! You will always have an opportunity to earn more points by shopping with us, engaging with our brand and community online, and through seasonal sales.

If you use your rewards towards a purchase and later decide to return that item, your rewards will be credited back to your rewards account. For example, if you use $10 worth of points towards a $100 purchase that you decide to return, the $90 balance will be refunded on your credit card and the $10 reward credit will be deposited back into your rewards account.

Double-check you were signed into your rewards account and didn’t accidentally check out as a guest. You must be logged in when making purchases to earn points. If you have done this in error, contact us at service@slmdskincare.com or fill out the contact form here to help apply your points to your account. You also won’t receive points if you return your purchase or your purchase is canceled for any reason. Please note that any points you earn on a purchase you later return will be deducted from your point balance.

Yes! You work hard to earn points and we want you to feel confident that all of your points are right where they should be: in your account! The first thing to note is that there may be a delay in our systems communicating and points could take anywhere from minutes to several hours to appear in your account. However, if you feel like you have earned points but they are not showing up in your account, you can also troubleshoot it with these tricks:

  • Try to refresh your browser.
  • Try to log out and then back in to your account.
  • Check your ‘Rewards history’ in your Rewards account to see if the points were added without your realizing it. Your ‘Rewards history’ will show you the number of points earned, how and when they were earned, as well as any redemptions of points made on your account.
  • If you still feel like your points balance is not accurate you can contact our customer support team at service@slmdskincare.com or fill out the contact form here and they will look into the issue for you.

    We are sorry to hear that. There are a couple of scenarios that could have triggered the error message. The first possible scenario is that there was a mistype in one of the email addresses that you entered or you forgot to put commas between multiple emails to separate them. To eliminate confusion over what occurred, we recommend that you go back and enter each email address one at a time, clicking ‘send’ after each one rather than uploading them all at once. If you are still having problems using the email referrals we recommend using your unique referral link or sharing the referral through Facebook, Twitter, or Messenger to receive credit. Please contact our customer support team at service@slmdskincare.com or fill out the contact form here if you need further assistance.

    Thank you so much for sharing us with your friends! We really appreciate it. Referred friends must be a first time customer in order for both of you to receive the referral rewards. In addition, the referral must be initiated through our rewards referral box on your personal rewards page or through the use of your unique referral link initiated here. Points will be added to your account as soon as your friend completes their first purchase on slmdskincare.com. When this happens you will receive an email letting you know that one of your referrals made a purchase using your code and that a reward was added to your account. You can also check your ‘Rewards History’ to see a list of any points that you have received for referrals.

    Rewards points can be redeemed during the checkout process. Before checking out, ensure that you are signed in to your account. Once you get to the checkout screen you will see your total available Rewards points available for use. To use your rewards, drop down the points redemption bar to select the number of points you would like to redeem on the order you are placing, then continue with the check out process. *You must have a minimum balance of at least 100 points each time you would like to make a redemption, and points must be redeemed in increments of $5.
