mariaa_rYayy! I like patches a lot. Actually, pimple patch is a special hydrophilic hydrocolloid, most of which contain cellulose gum and hydrogenated copolymer components, which can absorb the secretions of acne in the opening and block external irritants (dust, bacteria, ultraviolet rays) UVB), accelerate the healing of acne. To pop acnes with a needle in advance may cause a bacterial infection. I usually put it on before going to bed with dry skin, then cover the zits, and remove it the next morning.

Best blemish patch🙌🏻
HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell $7 I swear by this product These are super affordable and I put them on before I go to bed and when I wake up the blemish is super reduced or pretty much gone! They also come with clear ones that you can wear during the day time that are invisible and not noticeable and you can wear them under makeup!!! Best blemish patch ever!!!!
These patches are made with hydrocolloid which is made with fluid absorbing agents while protects the pimple to heal faster. Both are made of the same material and promise the same results. They work best on pimples with fluid or pus in it. STARFACE - Hydro-Stars Honestly I didn’t get results with this product 🙈 this patches fall off easily and the pimples in which I use them has improved a little. The patches and the case are absolutely beautiful! But I didn’t get the expected results. It’s cost is higher $22 for 34 patches. This is why I decided to switch to HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell These have worked better for me, I have seen results and they have lasted longer on my face than the other brand. It’s cost $12.50 for 36 patches. I generally don't look at the price if the product is good.
Equate Beauty Quick Action Pads Acne Treatment
These pads would be a great option for those with acne to use. But if you have sensitive skin like me, these probably wouldn’t work. These pads burned my skin and made my skin red. But if you don’t have sensitive skin, I would still only recommend you use these 1-3 times a week because they are VERY strong.
fix your acne for $20???? NO, NO, NO!!!
what it claims to do? they say that this spot treatment can dry up acne overnight, take it from a 10 on the ugly scale to a ZERO. so of course i had to try it, me and my horrible skin! first impression: it smelled so good, it smells like camphor? maybe eucalyptus oil??? it was so refreshing! but this usually means that there’s a lot of fragrance in the product which is not good for skin! application: using a Q-tip, dip into the bottom of the bottle to pick up some of the pink sediment and apply directly to problem areas! removal: after a night of wearing it (as recommended) the sediment had dried up on my skin and cracked off pretty easily! water melted the rest away but did it help my acne?? NO! I saw no reduction in redness, size, congestion! not a single change. and when I looked at the ingredients list, it made sense. The first ingredient is isopropyl alcohol which is super drying and not good for skin. The second ingredient is water which is nothing!! The third ingredient is calamine which is really good for a soothing sensation, but it doesn’t attack the acne! The next ingredient is zinc oxide and I’m not sure what this does for acne! The very last ingredient on the list is salicylic acid which is the one ingredient known to treat acne! so what exactly in this product is supposed to dry up acne if salicylic acid is the last ingredient??? save your money! differen gel from the drugstore is half the price and will do wonders for your skin! hope you all are doing well ❤️ MARIO BADESCU - Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion
MARIO BADESCU-Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion
🔍 WHY I SWITCHED FROM EPIDUO TO DIFFERIN I explained that I have switched from Epiduo (0.1% Adapalene and 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide) to Differin (0.1% Adapalene) at week 7 of my treatment of post-pill acne. The plan was always to downgrade to Differin (and hopefully, back to Retinol) but the initial POA was to swap medications at the 12 week mark. This was for 2 reasons. 1) For my own regime, I prefer BP to be a temporary measure. I see brilliant results with reduction in breakouts, but I do find it irritating + don’t find my skin ever reaches a point of acclimation/not experiencing redness/dryness/dehydration etc. 2) By Week 12, clinical studies of Differin Gel report up to 87% reduction in acne. By that point, I hoped that I didn’t need BP to treat any inflammatory breakouts and could instead start incorporating AHA’s/BHA’s on a more regular basis, to treat any tone/pigmentation/textural issues. 🔍 WHY DID I PREEMPTIVELY SWITCH? ✔️ I tolerated Epiduo very well considering my past experience with Adapalene on its own. Within a couple of weeks, I had built up to using Epiduo every other day, after moisturiser, with only mild side effects. Mostly it was just mild erythema and some dryness/flakiness around my nose/chin. However, when trying to bump up to nightly use, I noticed a slight flare up of perioral dermatitis on my chin. Since Adapalene is frequently prescribed to treat PD, I assumed it might be the BP causing the mild flare (I was right). ✔️ I was quite surprised by how quickly Epiduo worked - within 4 weeks there was atleast a 70-80% reduction in breakouts, and any new breakouts were becoming less frequent and easy to treat with LED. By this point, I felt pretty comfortable using Adapalene on its own for the rest of the course! ✔️ Epiduo is in a cream/lotion format. Not a big issue, but I already used two cream based products in my routine (SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 + moisturiser), so the gel base of Differin felt more appropriate. My skin is definitely appreciating the gel format more, and I’m waking up less oily than before.
Microneedle pimple patch
So I was looking for something to spend my Amazon gift card on and came across Acropass’ Trouble Cure Acne Patch. It's basically the same concept as Zitsticka. Simply put, it’s a pimple patch with microdarts that get below the surface to treat cystic acne aka deep-rooted pimples. It is infused with ingredients like ethanol, salicylic acid, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid that dissolve into the skin. ✨ How to use it: It comes with a pad that is soaked in salicylic acid and tea tree oil which is used to clean the targeted area. Once it dries completely, apply the pimple patch then continue with your skincare routine. It is suggested to keep it on for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight for best results. ✨ My experience: I’ve had this stubborn blind pimple for more than 2 months and nothing I tried was working so I gave this patch a shot. If you swipe left, you can see the difference from when I had just popped it and it was very angry! It didn’t get rid of the pimple overnight like they claimed but it certainly helped flatten it and reduce the inflammation. After my fourth use (yes it took that long), my pimple was pretty much healed and completely flat which I was very happy about! 😭 ⚫️ Pros: it was actually effective in flattening the pimple and reducing the swelling. The patch is very sticky so I had no issues with it coming off like I’ve had with the cosrx ones. Most of all it actually healed my angry 2 month old pimple but it took 4 patches! ⚫️ Cons: the pads have a very strong alcohol smell. They're all individually packaged which is not the most environmental friendly but I guess there's a reason for it. It’s not a perfect overnight fix but I’m honestly not mad about that because it still made the healing time a lot faster! Also it is expensive, basically paying CA$4.60 per patch. Overall, I think these would work better and faster for pimples that havent surfaced or popped. Would I repurchase? I think so, if I get a stubborn pimple again!
Worst acne treatment Ever!!!
I Bought this product around 2 months ago, and it still just isn’t working. It made my pimples even bigger. I tried putting different amouts on them but it just doesn’t work. I do have really sensitive skin, and all I see around my acne is redness when I use this. Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel I get small red bumps around the place I apply it on. 😔 I do think that it may work on other people without sensitive skin.
Neutrogena-Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel
Spots Be Gone!
Ingredient: Saw palmetto Product: Origins Spot Remover I rarely get pimples and I’m thankful enough that I didn’t suffer from acne when I was a teenaged girl. Although sometimes, especially if it’s that time of the month, I get the occasional hormonal pimple. They aren’t bad though, they come in small and usually go away after a week or so. There are some instances, however, when these small pimples leave a nasty mark on my face. I learned from a friend that I should use a spot corrector when I have these pimples so they won’t leave any mark after. I used to have The Body Shop’s tea tree spot corrector a few years back to treat the exact same issue. I came across this product when I was shopping for the iconic Origins masks. I thought to myself, maybe I’ll throw in this small spot corrector in my cart. And I’m glad I did. I’ve used this twice since I bought it due to the aforementioned occasional pimples. I noticed that my pimple had left my face earlier than the usual duration. It went away after about 2 days; normally, they stay on my face for about a week or sometimes longer depending on the size of the zit. This product is my go-to now when I have the once-a-month zit. Definitely recommend it to anyone experiencing zits too.
