"Medicated" is only printed on Sekkisei and Junkisui Skin Care Series. There is no "Medicated" wording on most Seikisho products except for Seikisho Soap and Seikisho Whitening Mask. These products are in original package and available in Asia and North America.

I use this mask not only in Summer but also during the Winter. However, I only apply it to my t-zone area when the humidity is low. It removes my stubborn blackheads to keep my pores clean and I can actually see my blackheads stick to the mask after peeling it off.
I am living in Southwest region where the heat makes me sweaty but at the same time, the dry heat dehydrates my skin in a flash so I use this mask once a week and follow the below steps to maintain my natural skin's moisture:
1) Use lukewarm water to clean my face and "open up" my pores;
2) Apply a thin layer of hydrating toner as a base to protect the skin;
3) Apply Kose Seikisho Whitening Mask for 15-20 minutes or until the mask is dry;
4) Peel off the mask and clean my skin completely using lukewarm water. Then, apply Sekkisei Whitening Lotion and Whitening Emulsion as usual.
