I LOVE these! When I get a zit I pop one of these bad boys on it overnight and can definitely notice a difference by the morning. You can even see all the grime the patch soaks up. It's not a miracle fix but it works. Also, I tend to pick at my zits but when I put a patch on it helps me resist the urge to pop/ pick.
These work really well! For me personally, they work really well on blemishes that have been somewhat picked at or squeezed. They never work on me for new blemishes that are deep under the skin, which I wish it did. When I take them off the next morning, only oil is on the sticker. Very happy with my purchase though!
I have predominantly cystic acne and find that these patches suck a lot of the oil and gunk out of the pore without having to pop the pimple (sometimes you can’t pop them when they’re really deep). When I leave them on overnight they keep the area hydrated while also removing oil and keeping it contained to a small area. When i do pop a pimple and put the patch on top, they work even better. It amazes me how they leave even most cystic pimples flattened by the morning.
I have adult, hormonal, cystic acne that is mild to moderate and fluctuates. When my skin flares up these things are my lifesaver. They are comfortable to wear and it helps the pimple heal more quickly, reduces redness and inflammation, and makes them less painful. I always get really bad flaky patchy skin around the pimple as it heals as well and they also cut down on that, making it much easier to cover with makeup during the day. I wear them overnight on clean skin and can see the difference the next morning for sure. I've also used these on my chest and shoulders when I break out there with the same results.
These little stickers pack a punch! I've used creams and serums in years before (and proactive) and nothing would save me from a pimple that would last for 7-10 days on my face in various healing stages. These stickers have cut my healing time in half! Sometimes if I catch it soon enough, I have them gone in 2 days, and they're much smaller. If I don't have to wear makeup that day, I'll change the sticker in the morning and leave it on all day, then wash my face in the evening, and put a new one on for the night. I get bad cystic, underground pimples that you really can't pop, and these things KILL THEM! Death to acne! Hooray for these stickers!
These things are magic. I tend to pick at my zits, and when I do I just stick one of these things on the area at night and when I wake up the damage is minimized. It seems to get all the stuff out so that by morning the area is flat. Just like when you take off a bandaid, the area needs a little time to dry out before you mess with it (covered it up, etc) so take them off first thing in the morning.
Everything I was expecting. Just put them on again tonight. I got them for blemishes, but mostly because I have a nasty bad habit with picking. I pick at everything, and I’m going to be 27 years old, and this habit needs to stop. These are WONDERFUL if you’re a picker like me. They’re super camouflage as well. So it’s not embarrassing if you live with roommates. I couldn’t believe how much they stick. So to sum this up, with the purpose I’m using them for, they work great!
These things are miracle workers. Both my husband and I use these. Like many reviews instruct, it works best on an already popped pimple or one that has come to a big head. The patch extracts the pimples and relieves redness and irritation. For most small blemishes, they're gone after the use of one patch. These don't work as well, if at all, on deep under the skin acne.

These little patches are magical. If you have a pimple/whitehead on the surface and apply one of these overnight, it will draw out all of the crud in your skin. The next morning you will be left with a flat, smooth patch of skin instead of an inflamed bump. These do not work on cystic acne, or anything deep in the skin. But if you have a cruddy, oozy pimple they will zap it away like magic. Highly recommended.
If you have a burst or lanced zit, wash your face, dry it, and put one of these on it. Moisturize only lightly around the patch to help it stay in place. Go to sleep. In the morning, most of the time you will find a gross mess has been sucked into the patch, and your skin isn’t swollen anymore, isn’t irritated and painful or itchy, but is still red. It doesn’t magically make acne heal to clear skin overnight, but it can get pretty far toward that goal.
I wish I had known about these all my life! I used to have such horrible cystic outbreaks just once a month but then it would take weeks to clear up and it was so painful! Now if I feel one forming under the skin, I slap the bigger patches on for a few nights and the thing usually goes away without ever coming to the surface and being a horrible painful ordeal.
These things have gotten rid of so many blemishes for me! I had two really big pimples, one on my chest and one on my shoulder so I put these patches on them and it pulled so much stuff out of those pimples that the area where it's white is actually like thicker than the rest of the patch, thes patches are a miracle! Gotta love finding inexpensive and super effective acne solutions!
I used to get acne quite often and these patches were a godsend. They didn't do much for cystic spots, but I felt like they'd clear up whiteheads in about half the time. These are also so helpful with the healing process - I'd often irritate my spots and continue messing with them but with a protective patch applied it game the spot plenty of uninterrupted time to mend. They're subtle enough to wear out of the house on a quick errand and the adhesive works really well without leaving any kind of residue behind.
These are AMAZING!
I have no idea how these things work but they do! I have bad under the skin pimples sometime that hurt and leave scars. These help so much in reducing pain and inflammation. I’ve noticed they work the best when the pimple is started to come up. I even use them after I pop a pimple and it gets out the excess pus out as well. Must buy! They are comfortable. I usually put them on after I wash my face at night and I sleep with them on till the morning.
