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.)

The product that is always in my cabinet! My skin has a mind of its own, so I never know when I'll break out. I'm having a great time with my skin, everything's great and then BAM! PIMPLE! That's when I whip this product out and slap it on the pimple! It has saved me so many times; I cannot imagine my cabinet without it. I make sure to buy several of these at a time, since I stock up for my sister as well! A must have! :)


It did not do anything on my acne. I was using patches for 4 days, but there was no reaction at all. Then I tried BHA Blackhead power liquid, my acne gone in 2 days.


I don't know how I lived without these! I stockpile these and have been gifting to friends, family, coworkers. They have worked for everyone.


Lo acabo de pedir y espero mucho de este producto. Cuando lo haya probado os diré que tal es.


I was so intrigued by these that we just had to try. These babies are a gem!!! I've lost count as to how many packs we have been thru. But, I have 6 packs in the drawer as spares. A package goes rather quickly during large breakouts but wow are they worth it.


I love this product so much!!! Works wonders on my pimples, especially those that never come out completely to the surface and stay on my face for ages. The only danger is that they run out very quickly! But totally worth it!


These are my absolute favorite! The best way to use it would be at night - so after all your cleansing and routine, swab a bit of your cleansing water to clean the area around the pimple so that there is no residue from other products on the patch when you place it. It will also effectively target the pimple and cover it, and not the layer of product you applied beforehand. Definitely going to get more of these!


Yes, that's a good tip! The first few times I used these patches, I put them on after cleansing and then tried to do my routine around them, and it didn't work very well -- I kept accidentally swiping products over the patches, lol.


This patches are great! They do work better when you already popped the pimple, but they do calm the ones that form underneath your skin too, it just takes a little bit longer.


I received this as a sample in the recent COSRX sale at Beautytap. I am pleasantly surprised at how well they work. I used one on a large cyst and another on a smaller whitehead pimple that had already formed a whitehead. It definitely worked immediately better on the pimple that already formed a head in terms of reducing size and making it less noticeable. But I am continuing to use on the large cyst and it does seem to be helping it slowly heal. I plan to purchase more of these and seek out some other kinds for comparison.... Read more


To be honest, these work best only after you have already popped the pimple. Once you've made an opening in your skin, only then does it really suck all the stuff in the zit out. If you don't want to damage your skin, I found that Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots work better.


I actually find that these are the best patches I've tried for patches in general. I don't really pop anything that shows up anymore and these pads fast forward my pimple for me. If they're under the skin, it comes to a white head over night. If it's a white head, I put one on at night and in the morning I can just gently wipe my breakout away.


Well of course, different people have different products that work for them so what works for you might not work for me. :) I am not affiliated with Beautytap/Peach Slices or Cosrx so I have no incentive to promote any brand. However, I find that for the same price, people might want to give Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots a try! Just passing along helpful information.
