About the product

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.)

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.


One of the things that I always stock up on! They are so simple to use and never lets me down! When I wake up after putting it on, my pimples are always flat. Always a great purchase!


These are great! I had a breakout right before a big performance and put this on it and it was almost invisible. They also keep your grubby fingers off a breakout if you pick at your face...


Even though I rarely have pimples anymore, I keep these little patches handy for emergencies. I recently used them on two deep recurring cysts that my husband had on his upper back. While nothing else really worked, the COSRX patches drew out the fluid quickly, and the inflammation subsided immensely. He was so impressed by the results that I quickly restocked for future skincare emergencies. We both love that they don't dry out the surrounding skin, which is a real bonus. They also prevent the fluid from weeping onto his clothes or the bed sheets. Worth every penny.
