COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH
This pimple patch treats acne in a good way, it absorbs the pus out of your pimple and it protects the skin from external pollutants. It protects your pimple from rubbing and touching which can lead to infection and scarring and it prevents the pimple from bacteria and that is exactly what you want. According to descriptions it is possible to apply make up on top, but the patch is definitely still visible in my opinion when you do so. I would recommend to use this before you go to bed as an overnight fixer. Just apply it on your pimple and you will be amazed how smaller/flatten the pimple got in the morning and how much gunk came out during the night.
It has 3 different sizes in the pack, just apply the one that will cover the whole pimple. Sizes are 7mm, 10mm and the biggest one is 12mm. There are 24 patches in total in the pack. As you can see I already used a few, since I couldn't wait and just wanted to try it once I got it.
The thin hydrocolloid patches feels similar to a thick hydrogel mask in texture, it adheres to the skin very well. It will even stay on through showering since it is waterproof. Now if you want to see how big the patches are, in below picture you can see it clearly.
WHEN TO USE
I asked this question multiple times on my instagram @Sokobeauty and I always get different answers. So when do you actually use this? 1.) Under the skin pimples? 2.) When pimple is raised but no pus yet? 3.) When your pimple is ripe and has visible pus? OR 4.) When the pimple is already popped?
So I asked the question to Cosrx on instagram and received the following answer (they answer so quickly and has great service by the way) :
HOW TO USE
Wash and dry the targeted area you want to treat. Don't apply any skin treatments or moisturizers between the patch and your skin. The reason for this is because it will stick less good onto your skin. When the area is wet, it might fall off.
You can apply it during the day. It is clearly stated on the descriptions to not remove the patches until the size of the acne blemish, pimple gets reduced, so that the patch can absorb the impurities sufficiently. I prefer to apply it before bed, so you can see the magic has worked in the morning. Remove the patch in the morning before doing skincare and you will notice that the patch have turned white as it absorbed the pus. If there is still white pus the next morning, you should apply another patch. With large pimples you may need to put on a patch for several nights in a row in order for your pimple to completely deflate.
Tip: always keep the patches in the packaging and leave it zipped so no sunlight will come through and store them in room temperature.
IT REALLY WORKS!
I had never been so happy to have a pimple coming up so I could try the patch out haha. Here you can see I have 2 pimples on my chin. (This is from snacking crisps and chocolate, I know BAD, I always eat junk food when I stress T_T.)
The next morning I saw this... YUCK but AWESOME at the same time! You see the white stuff? This is the pus that was inside it. It wasn't fully gone the next day, but it did flatten the pimple. I had to apply a patch the following night again and on the third day is was fully gone then.
WHERE TO BUY
I received these patches from Yesstyle.com for review purposes. It is sold for €4.80 there.
These are LIFE SAVERS and definitely works! It sucks the pus out and it flattens the pimple the next morning straight away. This has become one of my holy grails! This is an amazing product that I recommend to people with acne, has hormonal pimples or just have pimples once in a while. It does only contain 24 patches, which runs out quickly if you got a lot of pimples/acne. Therefore if you are willing to spend the money on it, BUY! I would repurchase again and again since it really works like a charm.
note: this product was sent to me for review purposes, this didn't affect my opinion about the product. I didn't receive money to write about it, see disclaimer.
