I Tried It All & An Acne Victory Emerged!
Hormonal acne is extremely difficult to completely eliminate unless you treat the cause- which, my hormone fluctuations aren’t going anywhere, so I’d gotten pretty good at controlling breakouts via salicylic acid and niacinamide while I used azelaic acid and alpha arbutin to fade any leftover spots. But nothing has helped minimize my hormonal breakouts quite like Tretinoin 0.05%, a prescription that was previously unattainable thanks to the $200 copay for the dermatologist visit and the $180 prescription cost. Apostrophe doesn’t require you to have insurance- they have a flat rate $20 “visit fee” during which you fill out a questionnaire (including your health history) and send a dermatologist photos of your skin. Then that $20 goes towards your first prescription fill in their pharmacy, which is only $60 the first time and $90 after, though each lotion bottle should last about 3+ months with recommended use. $30 a month for the gold standard topical anti-aging ingredient and clinically-proven acne treatment? Sign me tf up. After just a month using Apostrophe - Topical Formula , I saw a difference in the frequency of my blemishes, though with stress and mask wearing lately I’ve been breaking out again. So my doctor added Clindamycin into my mix... at no extra charge, just the flat $90 cost. For those with insurance, you can have your prescription filled at the pharmacy of your choice (with your insurance if it covers it), making it super convenient for those that don’t want to wait on shipping times, which was only a couple days for me. The entire process, from survey to first product application, took only a week. I didn’t experience much irritation when introducing Tretinoin, as I eliminated all exfoliants and a lot of the products I was using to reduce risk of sensitizing my skin- plus I didn’t (and still don’t, even around six months later) use it daily. My skin is now less oily, less prone to the small colorless bumps that plagued my forehead, and I don’t really get blackheads anymore. For the anti-aging aspect, I’m 27, so I have few signs of aging as far as my skin goes- I have noticed some slight improvement in a crease in my forehead I’ve had since I was 16, which is promising! I just can’t emphasize enough how, while this didn’t cure my acne or the cystic blemishes I get around my period, this lotion has been the best acne treatment I have tried so far. #CheriePartner
ZIT STICKA patches really work!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Hey guys so I ordered this ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit off Amazon as a acne spot treatment and let me tell you these patches really work. I used to COSRX ones before and they were ok but nothing compared to zit sticka patches. I double cleansed before I got started. Step one you wipe your acne blemish-with the included wipe in the kit and step 2 you apply the patch which have these little darts, which you can definitely feel but don't hurt, over the blemish. After applying the spot treatment I then applied the rest of my skincare avoiding the treated area. I went to sleep and wake up with significantly reduced acne blemish. ***swipe to see photos*** I definitely will be reordering these off Amazon!!! Have you tried these?? What are your favorite acne spot treatment??!!

✨I've had the chance to try @zitsticka SKIN DISCIPLINE, as you know I was always breaking out for different reasons as hormonal, diet-related, or stress-induced, in this journey, this has changed and I’m so excited to share my experience. Taking it daily took a few weeks to adapt -- a lot of reminders and alarm. But in the second month, it became a staple in my routine. In the first month, my skin was purging. I was aware that it wasn’t a reaction or anything bad because when you’re taking care of your skin from the inside it shows. As you can see in the before my skin was dull and I had hyperpigmentation and comedonal acne. In the 3rd-4th month, the hormonal breakouts and inflammation were on a low scale. I was surprised because my period always greets me with a big and red inflammatory zit on my chin (which I’m still working on to fade the scar) and I was so excited about this major change ✨ Now in the 8th-9th months on this regimen, I'm so amazed by the level of improvement my skin has made -- the glow, the fading, and looking back at the beginning of the year I see a lot of change. Also, due to the mask and all the new stress, I had few breakouts on a bigger scale but nothing like before, with the “maskne” I started using the KILLA patch and they work like a charm under the mask. I'm excited to try HYPERFADE on my scars!ZITSTICKA - SKIN DISCIPLINE

I tried pimple patches for the first time
🌼Tried the @zitsticka HYPERFADE microdart blur patch for dark spots. 🌼Since I was testing the product out I made sure to try it on a specific dark spot so I could get consistent results.I also tested it twice a week for three weeks. 🌼 While the dark spot has not completely faded, it is a little brighter. 🌼each patch has a list of brightening ingredients like tranexamic acid and vitamin c. 🌼I am not sure that I would purchase it, but I am glad I got to try it. 🌼 Have you tried this product? Did you like it *I won this item in a giveaway. #zitsticka #hyperfade #zitstickakilla #blemishpatch #blemishcontrol #skincarepatch #skintreatment skincarecommunity #skincarecollection #skincare101#affordableskincare #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #skincareblog #skincareblogger #ihaveathingforskincare #vitaminc #selfcare #glowingskin #deciem #skincarecommunity #skinessentials #skinessential #skincarereview #skincareregimen #skincareaddict #skininsta #hyperpigmentation #acne #discoverunder1k
Do these acne scar fading patches work?
Let's talk hyperpigmentation! If you've been following me for a minute then you probably know it's my biggest skin concern. Some people bruise like a peach, I get hyperpigmentation like nobodies business! One thing I've learned while dealing with it is that it takes attacking it from all angles. That's where the ZITSTICKA - Hyperfade patches come in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The HYPERFADE* patches are full of microdarts that melt into the skin and release brightening ingredients (niacinamide, vitamin C, arbutin, licorice root extract, and kojic acid to name a few) that dilute PIH from the inside out. I've been wearing them during the day since I've been working from home. I apply and then forget that they're there, letting the patches work their magic. I apply the patch every few days and stick to my normal routine between patches. PIH is stubborn and the patches have definitely helped to speed up the lightening process. They've got a permanent spot in my PIH fighting arsenal, so I'll be picking up another box during the Zitsticka sale going on right now! 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *gifted by the brand
[REVIEW ft @zitsticka] So let me start of by saying, I would love if my acne prone gals (like me) can listen in and let me know if you agree with me! I love zitsticka! I’ve been trying out their KILLA patches for early stage zits for quite some time now. But let me tell you, it’s costing me quite a buck. I love how it takes me maybe 3 patches to either shrink down ONE zit I feel under my skin tremendously or make it practically disappear. Sounds great right?! It is great. BUT when you’re acne prone like me and I mean ACNE prone, where you get 5-8 blemishes coming out ALLL AT ONCE, what am I supposed to do? Zitsticka retails for $30 for only 8 PATCHES, 8 !!! And it takes 3 patches for just ONE to go away, but I have 6-7 other zits to tend to? I’m spending like $60 on two packs to help with 5 blemishes total but I sometimes get more than 5 at once.🥺 It makes me stressed because I love how fast the results are but I don’t think I’ll be paying that anymore! What are your thoughts? I hope I explained myself well. 😂 I’m unsure of what other microdart patches to use, any recommendations? Side note: I know these are the small size, the Ulta by my house doesn’t have the full size in store.🤦🏼♀️ ZITSTICKA - KILLA Spot Clarifying Patch Kit ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit
Will be trying @zitsticka’s newest product: Skin Discipline for the next 30 days. I typically don’t see noticeable changes from supplements and don’t invest in them, but I think I’ll be able to tell if I like this one more easily. It claims to “minimize breakouts, regulate sebum levels and balance skin-supportive bacteria” along with other benefits. Personally, I think $36 (subscription) or $44 (one time purchase) every month is a little pricey for me. According to @zitsticka, the first month of taking these is only when your skin is getting acclimated to it, so you’ll see subtle changes. I’m going to keep a close eye for these changes and maybe by the end of the month I’ll be a little more convinced to keep going 😅 nevertheless, I’m excited! — gifted
Acne patches ✨
Zit Sticka is the best one I have tried yet 🥺 It come with 8 patches and 8 mini wipes, so you clean the area then you apply your sticka Targeted for zit, helps to relieve the inflammation and calm the eruption The first time I tried I was surprise with the micro needles I thought that they didn’t “hurt”, but they literally penetrate your skin Just in few hours my zit was calm and almost gone, I highly recommend this product, and always have a box in stock, zits like to appear when you have important stuff to do ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit
Killa - Wanna get rid of Acnes overnight!
Like many women I get acnes around my period time! If that wasn’t bad enough, I also have party to attend in the next few days! Luckily I have Microdart Zit Patch to rescue me from this suffering. I put the patch on overnight and my acnes got less aggressive and dried out the spots. Love it! Packaging is design to carry with you everywhere and so easy use. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars
Zap ⚡️ those zits!
Wow! I have a lot to say about these amazing stickers! At first, I wasn't fully convinced it would help with my cystic acne that I get here and there, but overnight it reduced the size and reduced it's redness a ton. Usually when I get a cystic pimple, it take about 2 weeks to go away 😰 with this little patch of love(and salicylic acid), it was gone within 4 days. WHICH IS INSANE! Love these. 12/10.

ZitSticka KILLA Patches
I have been using these ZitSticka KILLA microdart pimple patches for a few months and they are my absolute savior. I never had success with typical pimple patches as I don’t normally get whiteheads which is what most hydrocolloid patches are suited for. The interesting thing about these is that they have microdarts on them which are made of hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, peptides, niacinamide, and sodium hydroxide. These ingredients are able to penetrate deeply into the skin because of the dissolving microdart and target acne deep at the source. This makes them perfect for deep cystic acne that is painful below the surface of the skin. It takes my breakouts from a 2 week long painful ordeal, to a 5 day slowly fading mark. They don’t dry your skin like many acne-focused products which makes them perfectly suited to my dry skin as well. The kit comes with a wipe to use before application which I highly reccomend- I found that it I didn’t use the wipe prior, the patch had some trouble sticking to my skin and remaining on all night when I used it. I have reccomended these to friends and family, and continue to do so because I think these are a truly one of a kind product that actually works. Retail is $29 for 8 patches and 8 wipes. It seems a little expensive at first but when I saw how it actually works, the price is justifiable. As a result of price, these are probably best suited for someone with the occasional deep pimple rather than severe acne as it could end up being a costly treatment option.

These pills by ZitSticka are amazing! Been trying them out for about 2 weeks and am already starting to notice my skin becoming more even in color, brighter and clearer! Not to mention the minty flavor of the pills are a wonderful start to my morning routine!ZITSTICKA - SKIN DISCIPLINE
