Acne Pimple Patch
What It IsWhen a big, irritating pimple has to go, stick on one of these dots and let it work its magic. Each remarkable patch draws fluids and oils out and away from the skin to reduce inflammation while the tight seal keeps skin moist to encourage faster healing and reduce risk of scarring. Non-drying treatment is focused directly on the problem while an occlusive barrier keeps bacteria out and prevents touching, picking and popping. Invisible patches disappear on skin and stay in place even while you sleep. The Alba Botanica® brand was born in 1979 and follows a simple mission - to Do Beautiful. To honor that vision, we created a vibrant line of body-loving products that nourish the skin, hair, and of course, the soul.

Tough journey to good skin
I have always struggled with acne. As a person with Rosacea, my skin is ALWAYS read, I break out even if I look myself wrong in the mirror and trying to get into a skincare routine without breaking it, it’s a hassle. But, not impossible. Over the past month I started this routine, that if I may see and I haven’t followed through with it 100% of the time but at least a good 85%. I have to admit I haven’t seen my skin clear up as fast as I have with these products. So I’m going to break down step by step my routine. 1. Cleansing - the Clean&Clear - Morning Burst Oil-Free Gentle Daily Face Wash THIS is a relief on my skin, it feels so good. After that is definitely THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent , I bought the Coconut water scent one and it’s definitely one of my favorites. 2. Serums - I’ve always used Vitamin E, but never saw any type of improvement so I made a bit of research and this is what I use. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% After that I use FARMASI - Dr C Tuna Activated Charcoal Serum this one has been wonderful for the rough skin in my nose and forehead. artnaturals - 2.5% Retinol Age Defying Serum now this one makes my skin feel soft and refreshed. Last but not least in my serum is The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I have some dark circle under my eyes and if I don’t have my beauty sleep, Lord knows they show up, so this one is very good for my under eye circles. I confess I bought the Peeling Solution from The Ordinary but I’m a bit scared to try it. 3. Moisturize - This might be one of my favorite steps since it’s the most refreshing ones. For my rosácea, to bring the redness down I use FARMASI - Dr C Tuna Calendula Face Cream and for my regular moisturizer I use SheaMoisture - Cannabis & Witch Hazel Skin Rescue Moisturizer Now this, thiiiiiiiiiis is THE BOMB people, I’m telling you, it’s my LIFE SAVER. 4. Acne treatment - For pimples trying to come out, I use BURT’S BEES - Natural Acne Solutions Maximum Strength Spot Treatment Cream along with alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch and the next day, BOOM! Gone! All these products I bought of either the brand page or Target. I keep these stored in a mini fridge so they’re cold and refreshing to the skin.

PIMPLES-GOOD RIDDANCE! (part 1)
A pimple is a part of everyone’s path and in the time I’ve lived, I encountered many a pimple and each time I obsess over it trying to find the most perfect spot treatment. I think just about anyone can relate. Below is my experience and thoughts on some of the things I’ve tried. A remedy for every pimple type! Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment For night time application only. Very drying and funky (contains alcohol, an irritant to skin but works so well I can’t resist.) Most effective on a surfacing pimple (not the screaming kind). Pimple cleared within 1-2 days. Not for cystic acne. HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Invisible+ for Madewell $0.46 per sticker. Surprisingly super sticky and long lasting. As “invisible” as it gets, it blurs acne from afar. You can wear it under make up. Matte enough to wear out in public. Specific for pimples that look prime and ready to pop (note to self: resist the urge to squeeze). YES SISTERS!! This is it! It sucks everything up which gives me a close satisfying feeling to watching Dr. Pimple Popper pop that goody goody for good. alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch $0.19 per sticker. A cheaper alternative to the Mighty Patch. Contains ingredients like tea tree oil and witch hazel to help calm the pimple. Matte finish but not as thin as the Mighty Patch. Not that sticky, some fall off and gets stuck to my pillow at night. The outer edge circumference starts to lose its adhesiveness throughout the day (be brave enough to wear it in public, it helps!). If I wrote YES SISTERS for the Mighty Patch, this is more like a yes sisters. I use the Mighty Patch until most of the gunk is gone (around 1-2 nights) and if the pimple is still there then I switch and use Alba Botanica pimple patch to absorb any remaining fluids. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Acne Patches $0.44 per sticker. Glossy finish. It has different ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil that helps soothe that flaring spot without drying you as it also contains hyaluronic acid. For best results, use on pimples that hasn’t come to a head yet. The adhesive is pretty top notch unless it’s worn in moist conditions. It has helped me prevent so many almost cystic pimples. I would be at a loss without it. If you know any other effective products feel free to share so I can experience the same joys of eliminating pimples with you! 🤩 For more tips on how to say goodbye to that pimple, check out my other post Pimples-Good Riddance Part 2.

Review my routine!
Hi everyone! Still fairly new to skincare so my routine definitely still has room for improvement. I have combo skin where I can get a bit oily in the T-zone but dry around my nose,mouth, and eyes. So far this routine is working pretty well for me but I don’t feel like I am getting enough moisture. Also if anyone has any recommendations please let me know! CleanserOLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser okay I love this cleanser! It’s so gentle and I don’t feel like it strips my skin. Exfoliating cleanser THE BODY SHOP - Vitamin C Microdermabrasion I use this once or twice a week and it’s okay. I prefer the philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash but it’s not cruelty free and it’s fairly expensive. SerumThe Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This product is AMAZING it helped clear up my skin in about a week. Eye creams:THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream I don’t really see results from this one. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I got this as a sample and I feel like it’s nice and moisturizing under my eyes, I don’t see dramatic results though. Moisturizer THE inkey LIST - Multi-Biotic I recently started using this and I can definitely see an improvement, my only complaint is it doesn’t smell great. Moisturizer ACURE - Brightening Day Cream While I don’t use this anymore I do still love it and use it for if I go overkill irritating my skin. Acne alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch These work well and are so affordable! Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment One of the few spot treatments that actually works on me.

The #mascne is real, y’all
Sorry my posts have been so infrequent here lately, I have been stressed to the max taking state exams to make sure I have a job this fall! It’s been wild and I’ve had to be in a mask quite a bit taking those long tests at the testing center! I haven’t broke out in forever but all of a sudden I’m covered in bumps and realize it’s from being out more and having to use a mask. I wanted to show you guys that this happens to everyone! Even if your skin isn’t acneic, turns out it doesn’t like being in a hot humid mask for hours on end. I’m using a combo of Niacinamide, zit stickers, and barrier cream to fight this BUT I wanted to show you guys how normal it is. I will take a couple of uncomfortable pimples over putting myself or others in danger! alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Breakup Letter to Pimple Patches of yesteryear
Dearest, I loved you all, I hoped for the best but I just can’t do it anymore. I didn’t wanna grow up, after all I’m a beauty junkie but we’re in a recession and desperate times....LET GO COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch , I love you but move aside. Clearasil - Overnight Spot Patches 18 Count, you’re a staple but lord you are expensive with no added benefit aside from sucking whiteheads away. peach slices Acne Spot Dots Facial Treatment - 30 Patchespeach slices - Acne Spot Dots , it’s time for a heart to heart....I only buy and use you when there’s nothing else on the shelf. You were kind to me but, you’re a backup at best. PEACE OUT Acne Healing DotsPEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots , Sephora you tried it! You sure did and I fell for it because well you’re product is great but it’s highway robbery and “mama ain’t raise no fool” 🤣 20 patches for 20.00? Cute but we’re in a recession so it pains me to say but PEACE OUT! 💅🏾 Peter Thomas Roth GLB Blemish Clear Invisible DotsPETER THOMAS ROTH - Acne-Clear Invisible Dots , you literally burnt my skin, left me with dark spots which just covered over my pimples, leaving me with mutant acne and dark spots. Oh yea, your patches don’t Stick......Expensive and damaging, no thank you sweetie. NOW for the coup d'éta alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch My holy grail! Why? Well keep reading⬇️: 1. Cost: 7.00 2. Patch’s provided: 40 (mixed sizes) 3. Visibility: I’m black so nothing is transparent but this is the closest to it. 4. Stickiness: It will not budge. 5. Effectiveness: Two days and my CYSTIC hormonal chin acne was Ghost 😱. 6. Healing: Tea tree, witch hazel, lentil and parsley. Thank you very much I’m a fan for sure FYI I’ve tried most of the popular pimple patches available and the hunt is still on. I believe that certain patches are great for certain acne and there is no shame in having a stock pile of several patches for several occasions. Love, Mata Hari
PEACE OUT-Acne Healing Dots
Now I’m a Believer
A good friend recommended these bad boys to me (she uses more intense ones with salicylic acid because she’s more acne prone and less sensitive) and I was skeptical but needed a spot treatment for my occasional pimples. These are amazing! I forgot to take a before/after but I went to bed with a knot coming in on my chin and woke up and all the redness and pain was gone! They also keep you from picking (yay!). I’d highly recommend these to anyone who gets the occasional spot but would probably go for stronger patches if you get intense acne. These are gentle and made with tea tree oil, witch hazel, and lentil and parsley extracts. Salicylic acid is going to be much better on those more acne prone but if you’re quite reactive/sensitive give these a try first! They’re also non-drying for my dry people. alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch
