Spot stickers, pimple patches, whatever you call them, little hydrocolloid skin patches that help to bring down spots have been big news in the world of skincare for a while now – mainly because they really can work.
One of the bestselling spot stickers on the market right now is COSRX’s Acne Pimple Master Patches, which currently sell at an incredible rate of one every 25 seconds. The Korean beauty brand counts Alexa Chung, Emily Ratajkowski, BTS’ Jungkook and Madelaine Petsch as fans, and the pimple patches sold out in just one day when they first launched in the UK (after gaining an 8,000-person waitlist, of course).
As a no1 seller on Amazon in the ‘Beauty & Personal Care’ category (and the ‘Amazon Choice’ for spot patches), these 5-star rated patches might be tiny but they sure are mighty, with hundreds of excellent reviews from customers.
The COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch works to get rid of all types of zits – no matter how large, small, red, or angry – with its multi-pronged approach. First, the physical patch helps to keep you from touching and picking at the spot (we all know not to do it but sometimes it’s just too tempting), which in turn helps to prevent a scab (and therefore a potential scar) from forming.
As well as this, it forms a physical barrier between the spot and any external bacteria which can further irritate it. Lastly, the hydrocolloid material it is made from is designed to accelerate the spot-healing process by drawing out any oil and excess fluid from the pimple.
At just £5.99 for a pack of 24 patches, these are well worth trying out – why suffer when you can slap a sticker on your spots and shrink them? Of course, if you suffer from severe acne then you should never be afraid to visit your GP or a dermatologist for help. But for the odd spot, these are a great find.
Even better, at the moment the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch packs are 21 per cent off at FeelUnique, making them an even better bargain at just £4.75. We’re sold…
