What the brand says: Hydrocolloid patches infused with tea tree extract and salicylic acid help heal pimples faster and with minimal scarring. Use on cleansed and dried skin. Remove when patch turns white, which indicates that excess sebum has been drained.
Packaging: The patches are transparent and come like stickers stuck on a plastic paper enclosed in a matte plastic packet. The packet is very lightweight and tiny and can be carried around.
How I use and after-effects: My skin has been acting very weird recently! I am breaking out more than usual maybe because I am trying out a lot of products or doing a lot of makeup and not cleansing it off properly. This was the right time to give this product a try! To use, simply cleanse your skin thoroughly and pat dry; apply the patch on your pimple and keep it for a minimum of 8 hours for it to work properly and effectively. I did so and here are the results- After 8 hours, the pimple looked even more inflamed but I thought its just the reaction; I used the patch overnight too the same day.
The next day, as I removed the patch, the pimple drained off on its own! Pimple draining off without you having to burst it prevents scarring so I am positive in that part, and that’s what the brand claims. I again used the patch the entire day and night and this was done for continuous 3 days (pictures clicked after each day). The pimple clearly went flat on the third day and is all dried up now! The only negative part would be that you would want to buy several such packets if you have acne all over! This product is useful if you have an emergency and want to get rid of the pimple ASAP! This was the case with an inflamed full grown pimple, smaller blemishes might heal in a day.
