**Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches are on JenCat’s Beauty Recommendations list!
I recently found these acne patches on Amazon and read some reviews about how good they are, so I thought I’d give them a try. It was $6.65 CAD (free shipping) on Amazon.ca for 24 patches (3 different sizes).
I had an underground pimple, you know, the ones that hurt but haven’t reached the surface yet, so I put a small-sized patch on the spot after I washed my face and went to bed. When I woke up, I noticed the patch had turned cloudy (it starts off a bit translucent). I peeled it off and it was no longer an underground pimple, the patch had brought it to the surface. It left a bit of a small hole where the pimple had been, but it healed within a few days (less healing time than if I had aggravated it by squeezing it out).
I think the patches work best on the pimples that hurt, rather than the ones that have already come to the surface. It helps dry out the pimple and protects any dirt from getting to it.
To my surprise, the patches stick really well (make sure the area is clean and dry before putting it on). I read that people sleep with the patches on and I wondered how they would stay, but once you place it on, you can barely feel it and they stay in place. Unlike some bandaid brands, they won’t come off until you take it off.
I will definitely be buying these again! Especially for those nasty underground zits that I get during that time of the month.
