What Is It:


Enough can’t be said about the wonders of this wholly innovative, pimple-busting patch — it’s changed the lives of acne sufferers everywhere and is a must-have holy grail product on practically every K-beauty aficionado’s vanity.
So how does it work? (Warning: grossness — yet totally satisfaction — ahead.) This hydrocolloidal patch helps suck out all the pus and liquid in an extracted pimple overnight while protecting the wound from dust and bacteria, so that the next day, all you’re left with is a flat red mark. No more disgusting, hard-to-cover-up scabs and bumps to deal with for days on end! This transparent patch helps speed the healing of whiteheads, blackheads, and even cystic pimples. Available in three different sizes for all your pimple needs (7mm, 10mm, and 12mm for those giant honkers), these patches work overnight for a much-better-skin-day morning!


Our insight:


See why it is so oddly satisfying to use these patches here.


How to use:


After cleansing, dry face and apply the patch to areas with pimples. The patch works best on extracted pimples. Leave on overnight and remove in the morning. (The bloated white part of the patch is the area where all the pus and liquid have been pulled out of the pimple.)


Ingredients:


Cellulose gum, Styrene Isoprene Styrene Block Copolymer, Polysobutylene, Petroleum Resin, Polyurethane Film, Liquid Paraffin, Tetrakis Methane

These have been a staple in my skincare routine for years now and with the current state of the world I have no problem wearing these under my mask in public. Not only do they suck the gunk out of your blemishes but they also are a protective barrier and it keeps me from trying to pick at my face. The only other thing I have to say is that I find the tiny dots pretty useless they dont stick very well i only use the medium and large ones. Wish there were more sheets to the pack!

I never want to be without these when I am experiencing breakouts. This little sticker not only is meant to reduce the size of a blemish but is great to protect the area from outside pollution and bacteria. I find this product effectively reduces the size of my pimples, some of them are even gone after only one use. I 10/10 recommend you add this to your acne care ritual. Pro tip: this can be worn underneath makeup.

Gave these a try and they're like a munch more gentle version of pore strips. You clean your face and place a patch on your spot. They come in various sizes. Leave it overnight and by the next morning the patch has turned sort of white with all the gunk from your spot. Its gross and oddly satisfying lol. It doesn't hurt to peel off. Its not messy and won't get on your bedding like overnight spot treatments. Its cheap especially for how many you receive.

Bonus tip: I've also used these on stubborn ingrown bumps and they've worked their... Read more

These are INCREDIBLE! As someone who has and is dealing with acne, these have been a miracle for sudden breakouts. These are perfect for reducing inflammation, redness, and dirt/bacteria buildup. Plus, as someone who has been tempted several times to pop pimples (It's recommended not to do this, but sometimes it just happens), these prevent scarring and speed up the healing process. And the price is just right...what's not to love! Perfect, just perfect.

Cannot possibly like or LOVE these little miracle workers anymore! My go to for spot treatment on those unwanted visitors. I never pick or attempt to extract a pimple until I've used one of these patches first, draws out all the bacteria and speeds up the healing process. This is a "CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT" product for me! Wish I could give them 100 STARS! The price point is awesome as well.

These are SOOO good!! This is one of those product that I constantly need to stock up on. I'm amazed by how amazing these work for such an affordable price. I usually get a few pimples here and there due to stress. I put one of these on overnight and I would noticed a decrease in the redness and size of the pimple. It literally gets all the gunk and the white stuff out. I highly recommend!

One product that I stock up on and gift to friends and family. These have worked for everyone and speed up recovery time on even the peskiest of acne.
