Even people with clear skin get pimples from time to time. And, while the go-to treatment used to be applying zit cream, pimple patches are the latest way to tackle these pesky bumps.
Pimple patches are simple to use and much less messy than creams. You simply remove a medicated sticker and apply it on top of your zit before bed. In the morning, you should see some noticeable results.
There are plenty of options on the market, but one brand in particular has developed a cult following. It's called CosRX and, just for today, Amazon has slashed prices on several of its mega-popular patches. Don't miss your chance to stock up on these fan-favorites.
CosRX's Acne Pimple Patch is the company's original pimple patch, and it has more than 15,600 perfect reviews at Amazon. The patches feature hydrocolloid to create a moist environment while targeting the bump with anti-acne medication. This kit features 24 patches in three different sizes — small, medium and large — but there's another on-sale option with 240 patches for $20 (was $28). To use, just clean and dry the area, pick the right-sized patch and place it over the spot. That's it!
"These are a godsend — I mean, where was this product when I was a teenager?" a five-star fan said. "These little patches work great for helping (popped or opened) blemishes to disappear within days or even hours. They help reduce scarring and keep me from picking and making the situation worse. After slapping one of these on overnight, a big blemish was emptied of all remaining gunk, and what was a swollen bump became a flat, slightly red spot that disappeared completely by the next day."
When a stubborn zit surfaces, it's time to call in the big guns. CosRx Master Pimple Patch Intensive has a stronger formula than regular CosRX patches and is specially designed to absorb pimple gunk while soothing the area with tea tree oil. These patches are an oval shape and easily secure to the contours of your face.
"I’ve used quite a number of different hydrocolloidal patches, and this one is my favorite," a happy customer said. "I don’t know if it’s the oval shape, the tapered edges or the matte texture, but it blends in and conceals the blemish extremely well. More than once I completely forgot I even had it on my face until I was already in the shower washing my face. Not only does it conceal the blemish, it also protects it while it heals."
Got a big pimple? There's an extra-large patch for that. CosRX Master Patch X-Large stickers are made to tackle pesky large bumps. These oversized patches can cover larger areas of your face and use hydrocolloid and niacinamide to take out any unwanted pimples underneath.
"I’m so glad they came out with these extra large ones, because they fit the clusters I get around my mouth and nose thanks to wearing a mask all the time," a fan said. "I love putting one on before bed, and waking up to my acne looking less red and inflamed. Helps speed up healing time once they start to scab over, too."
