What the brand says: Hydrocolloid patches protect pimples from secondary infections and prevent them from further swelling. Available in various sizes, the patches cover the affected area and absorb excess sebum to promote rapid healing of the pimple. Apply on cleansed skin before any essence or moisturizer. Offers intensive care to problematic spots on skin.
MY TAKE ON COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH
Packaging: The pimple patches come neatly packaged in a transparent seal enclosed in a zip lock packet. The packaging is travel friendly and hygienic.
Texture: The patches are transparent and feel like a thick gel or silicony and feels comfortable on the pimple.
How I use and staying power: To use, cleanse the area and carefully stick the patch onto the pimple. Make sure you use the correct size of patch in order to fully cover the desired area. Use the patch until the pimple gets flat or is vanished/healed. When the patch swells or get white spots (due to absorption of pus and exudate), replace the patches. You can apply your regular moisturizer on top.
I have been using this product for quite some time now and I already love it! I do not get very severe painful pimples now as I am using a lot of anti-acne products but I do get tiny ones on my cheeks and 1-2 cystic right before my periods (thank you hormones!). So, as described by the brand, I used the patch until the targeted pimple vanished completely; this took complete 3 days which is quick as my acne usually takes a week or so to completely vanish! I used the patch 24/7 for 3 days and replaced it every time I felt a need for it. The first time I replaced, the pimple got drained on its own and that facilitated quick healing. By day 3, the pimple was completely vanished leaving behind a dry patch of skin (refer the picture) which peeled off later leaving behind no scar. I am totally satisfied with the results and I think I will always have this handy to be used during emergencies.
