I want to talk about pimples! More specifically, 𝐅𝐀𝐂𝐄 𝐈𝐍𝐕𝐀𝐃𝐄𝐑𝐒! 🤬 Those 𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐢𝐠, 𝐧𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐲, 𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐬 that love to make appearances in the worst places at the worst of times!! You know! ⭐️ Although I’m pretty guilty of doing this...we all are even if we preach other wise & probably the worst thing you can do is 𝐏𝐎𝐏 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐏𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐋𝐄𝐒! Popping your pimples not only can 𝐬𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚 & pus from the infected pore to the surrounding area but it can also lead to infection & scarring. 🌟 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐚 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 ?! A pimple patch! More specifically @starface they’re a spot treatment for your nasty face invaders! These hydro stars will not only zap your pimple but it’ll do it in a much more gentler way. It literally sucks the gunk of your pimple & shields your skin from bacteria & protects it from the need to want to pick at it! These babies are amazing! ⭐️ I usually get hormonal breakouts along with several 𝐅𝐀𝐂𝐄 invaders that last for weeks & can be painful too! I’ve used several of these & I will say depending on the size and type of pimple on average it took 3 days to zap my pimple using a @starface patch. 𝟑 𝐝𝐚𝐲𝐬?! I’d say that was pretty impressive, not to mention they come in this adorable pocket sized case with a baby mirror! 🤩

Do hydrocolloid (acne) patches work? 🤔
If you’re well versed in beauty then you probably have some pimple patches in your collection right now. But if you don’t know, then let me tell you about my favorites and why do I like them! These two are basically the same product, the STARFACE - Hydro-Stars just happen to be cuter and if you don’t mind having stars on your face protecting your pimples then these are perfect for you! Also the little case they come in makes them perfect for travel or to throw in your bag so you can have these on hand when you need to replace your patch (every 2-3 hrs). The peripera - Kitten Spot Care Patch is a lot more discrete, it’s practically invisible on the skin and they come in a variety of sizes for different sized pimples which is super convenient in my opinion and are the best pimple patches I’ve tried. Which one of the two I prefer? It just depends on how I’m feeling and if I’m going out, but I personally like the Kitten Spot Care Patches. They just seem to work best in my opinion, are very inexpensive and easier to walk out of the house with!
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.
Cute kit from Truly, but truly misses the mark
Love the packaging! So fun, so cute. The designs are so cool too. The kit includes their Marijuana leaf acne stickers, a pimple extraction tool, three nose pore strips and a tube of acne spot treatment. The acne stickers don’t really help and caused a bit of irritation. The nose pore strips are cute but small. The acne tool could cause skin damage if not used properly, so be cautious. The CBD spot treatment was okay but haven’t noticed any changes. Cute kit but the products were just okay.

Are you a star?
Well you might not feel like one when you have a pimple but you can look cute while zapping that sucker into outer space! These little hydrocolloid pimple patches are the perfect way to avoid popping a pimple. They are advertised as a cute way to rid yourself of a zit. Does anyone remember the fad of putting a sticker on a pimple only to make it worse! That’s kind of how these work but they are cute and healing at the same time! I have personally watched them turn a zit from red, inflamed, and painful to smooth flat and almost nonexistent over night. They adhere like a dream and I wasn’t really expecting to be as impressed with them as I have been! They truly do work and quickly! I like to lightly wipe the area where I’m applying to with a cotton round especially if I’ve applied a face oil and that slap this cute little sticker on and call it a night! Do you believe in magic? Well now I do😂. These stickers are so worth the cost because you don’t have to use them for more than 2 nights to see the results! I definitely recommend checking them out so those holiday stress pimples can check out of your skin🤪. They texture is well like a sticky sticker that sticks. Not really another way to explain a sticker honestly. But when you take it off in the morning it’s almost like it’s sucked all the nasty funk out of the zit and dispersed it across the surface of the patch. It’s almost like it turns kind of gummy if that makes sense. I’ve tried a few different pimple patches on the market and these surpass the others! They are OUT OF THIS WORLD 😂🌟 I rate these 5/5 stars because they are truly effective! My husband has even been stealing them and he “doesn’t do skincare”😂.STARFACE - Hydro-Stars

These super cute starface pimple patches are seriously the cutest things EVER made!!! I love that the pack comes with so so many patches and that you can even repurchase refillable packs to fill your cute box back up when it’s empty!!! My ONLY downfalls of this product are (1) the patches are super hard to get off the plastic... they almost need like perforated lines to break away so they can be easily taken off without bending the sides of the patch and (2) they are really small. They definitely work very well for those tiny white heads that pop up but are definitely not big enough for the bigger style blemishes. I wish the brand would come out with bigger patches to fight the bigger acne spots with cute colorful patches!! And for $22 you can get a one time purchase or you can even sign up for monthly refills at a discounted rate as well!!! But other than those 2 downfalls... I am pretty happy with these cute star patches. STARFACE - Hydro-Stars
I bought this since one of my favorite skinstagrammers @breakfastatellies raves about it. It contains peppermint oil and zinc oxide in a paste form that you apply as a spot treatment. It supposedly works to help flatten bumps and lessen inflammation after a few days of treatment. However, I SWEAR by my COSRX blemish patches. So in comparison, this just doesn’t do it for me. Usually it just takes one patch to completely flatten a pimple for me (maybe a second round for a real nasty one), so why would I wait for this product to do the job in maybe a few days when I can get the results I want in one? I can see myself using this to help treat spots and bumps that aren’t ready for a patch yet, or larger areas that a patch won’t work for. But don’t expect this to dry up a blemish overnight by any means. I do enjoy the peppermint tingle though! Have you tried this?

Head into outer space with Starface 💫✨⭐️🪐
“Houston to Starface..." Starface - Hydro Stars I'm on my second pack of these pimple patches (both gifted) and I've been really impressed with the performance. They're not only cute but they get the job done rather well. What are they? star-shaped patches for spots, pimples, etc dressed in 100% hydrocolloid. What do you get? 32 patches for $22 ($18 for a refill) My experience: These have been so good I even put my sister on. For small white-heads and spots 1-2 patches get the job done usually over-night. As stated by Starface, they claim the patches absorb fluid, shield spots from outside bacteria, and prevent skin picking. I'd definitely say this is true. However, a while back I had an underground/cystic pimple on my chin, which I usually don't get often. It took probably 12 patches total to get to the point where I didn't need to wear a patch. The cystic spot took weeks to go away. Rating: 3.5/5. -Absolutely cute as f*ck. -Tackle whiteheads and small spots. -Easy and convenient to carry. -Refills available for a discounted price! There are definitely pimple patches out there that are more affordable but for my skin's needs, I would most definitely purchase these with my own money. If your main concern is underground/cystic spots, these probably aren't right for you!
