    Another social media hype propaganda

    It was a complete disappointment 😓😪😢 I’ll just start with the fact that it peeled a little bit of my skin, and the pimple marks haven’t gone away after about 3 months. No acne product had EVER left marks on my face. This thing legit destroyed my self esteem as it ruined my right check with this horrid pimple marks!! I had read so many good reviews and I was hyped and hopeful that they would work 😪😪😪

    Amazing - Can’t believe I didn’t know about these until now

    I kept seeing this concept product online and was curious about it - then I started growing a single little friend on the side of my face and thought this would be the perfect time to give into temptation and try it! Fair warning - super long review lol (It was $20CAD at shoppers) so grabbed it at Walmart for $12 which seems to be the average price for a 36 piece box (same on Amazon but I don’t have prime so thought it would arrive after I could use it lol) there are two sizes and I do wish there were more of the larger ones; I think the smaller ones will be less useful (but perhaps I will be proven wrong as I work my way through the pack) I applied the larger size to my blemish which was a whitehead, more a hormonal one in my case, have read it doesn’t work on cystic acne; but then also read lots of reviews of people with cystic acne who find it effective and really liked it! I am not sure if it would work on all blemishes equally, but will keep playing with these. I admit I was a bit skeptical of if these would work as hopeful and excited as I was to try them out. I did a bunch of research as I wasn’t sure how it could draw the stuff out through unbroken skin - some people said it did and some said they open/pop the zit then apply the dot. I would have appreciated some additional notes from Nexcare on the box about that - mine was closed when I applied the first one (not sure if it was drawing stuff to the surface or it was naturally moving up since it had already been developing for about 2-3 days) Instruction-wise you are to apply it to clean skin with clean fingers so I had cleaned the area with a little rubbing alcohol and let it dry (also thought that might help it adhere a little better) Its a skin tone dot, so from certain angles super subtle and you can’t even see it on, apparently you can also use it while wearing makeup (to be applied under the makeup, but I think it might show due to the slight thickness?) I have to say it adheres and stays on super well!! I I was quite impressed with that factor - I had that one on for about 8 hours and it didn’t slip or start to peel at all, after that time tried to pop it under the patch, don’t think that worked. One huge added benefit is it did stop me from picking or playing with the blemish at all!! It really reduced my urge to do so, which I am famous for doing - so I do believe just that alone makes this product super helpful to prevent scarring. When I removed the first one I did pop the tip and then apply then second one which I left on over night (recommended) assuming it’s meant to be on 8-10 hours. I was curious how they worked so had done a little googling - apparently hydro colloidal patches are magic that have been around since the 80’s as wound dressings - it comes split into two packs each inside a sterile outer pouch (I did read one person say they dried out before they could finish them, so maybe good to share with a friend? I haven’t had them long enough to speak to that) the sticky side (it is kinda hard to tell when you open the pack which it is, I would have appreciated an indicator to make it easier and me more confident I was doing it right) is “coated on one side with some mixture of pectin, carboxy-methylcellulose, and polymers that absorb fluid. When placed over an open wound, they pull the fluid out, encasing it/forming into a gel.” Taken from an Amazon review by MirasReviews (to provide credit) They are non-medicated and also seals the area which has the added benefit of preventing bacteria and such to help ward off infection. The dots feel soft to the touch and comfortable; I don’t feel like I am aware I am wearing it, as well they are also are non-drying, breathable and not made of latex if that is a concern. When I awaken and removed my second one this morning it worked!! Looked exactly like the pics of other peoples that I have seen online - it had sucked out whatever and the white stuff had been cleanly absorbed into the patch. The actual blemish on my face was flat and not angry (how it normally would be if I had simply popped a blemish) I was happy and impressed with how the skin wasn’t swollen as it usually is! As of now it feels like it has closed and honestly healed way better than without and to the point it would be days later already! I definitely recommend trying this product and brand - the price point and effectiveness, to see if it works for you - might take a little playing with as I did. It was definitely 10x a better blemish experience than without! :) I am also intrigued by and would like to try the brands that use microdarts like ZitSticka, Dr. Jart and Peace Out to deposit ingredients such as salicylic acid etc into the blemish, the latter two I didn’t see on the Sephora Canada site #Skincare

    Can't Say Enough Good Things!

    I bought these acne patches because I was struggling with a white-head pimple that felt like a mountain on my chin- SO annoying! These are so simple and fairly effective! You just cleanse your skin, then make sure it is dry before you apply the patch. I do find that they sometimes work better than other times (ie sometimes I wake up with the white-head totally gone and the pimple is flat, vs other times when it is slightly reduced but still a white head).

    Where have these been all my life??

    These work like magic! They come in two sizes and stay on your skin all night if applied to clean and dry skin. If you have a little blemish, pop on a patch and by morning you will see that it has pulled out the gunk from your skin. As it works overnight, you will also feel your skin flatten by morning. I always keep a stash now at home!!

    WHY AREN'T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THESE?!

    OMG!!!! These tiny little power-house patches saved my wedding day! 2 days before my big day, I started to get stress pimples on my face and chin. I rushed to the Drugstore to find the magic cure and low and behold I FOUND IT! I wore these guys day (under foundation) and night to bed and they magically zapped my pimples. Highly recommend these little wonders!

    Not for Cystic pimples

    The patch makes the pimple look less red or purple since it is colored but the thickness of the patch make it obvious you're wearing it. I find that it doesn't work well in absorbing oil if the pimple is deep. But once the pimple is popped it seems to absorb better... And dit somewhat heal faster. I'm mixed about these patches, wished it would have work better for me.

    I will buy this again !!!!

    This product is amazing. You put it on your blemish, and it is transparent. After a while, it turns white, which means it dried out the blemish for you..and the next day, it is almost gone !!!!!!!

    Not a gimic, it works!

    I was skeptical when my friend told me about these acne absorbing covers. I have been breaking out lately and so why not give it a try? I cleansed my face at night and put one of them over my pimple and left it overnight. When I got up, I peeled it off and my pimple got smaller. It actually works!

    Acne Game Changer

    As someone who doesn't have bad overall acne but gets really bad pimples every now and again I love this product. I'll be honest I'm a squeezer but thanks to thus product my skin can get through a breakout in one piece. For the most part I wear them at night or when I'm around the house but I have been able to blend it in with my everyday makeup on occasion. The formula keeps the pimple clean and away from prying hands while bringing out the dirt and pimple Fron under the skin to make the process go faster.

    The best thing I've tried

    Honestly, I purchased these to fill up an Amazon order to qualify for free shipping. I have always had issues with serious pimples around my period and my skin is so sensitive that I never pop them because they scar and scar for a long time! I was looking for a way to speed up the process of my skin getting rid of the pus or bring it to the top and this is a great solution!

    Unlike other similar things, this pads stay on your face so you can wear them overnight without most of the product getting on your pillow. They don't hurt and they don't dry out your skin.

    It doesn't magically heal a zit, but for people with slow-healing skin like me, it's a great way to get the process going!
