Review: COSRX Acne Master Pimple Patches

DSC_0377My review on this has been long overdue. I’ll start off by saying that I love this product and it’s one of my absolute could not live without products. It consists of a set of patches that you apply onto spots to draw out all the nastiness and reduce the redness, which helps get rid of spots quickly and easily. These patches are little round shapes that come in a variety of sizes to fit whatever spots you might have.

To apply these you just cleanse the area around the spot and then place the patch over the spot. A little cleansing hack is to take a cotton bud (q-tip) and wet one end with micellar water. Just swab the cotton bud over the area around the spot and if you get the skin too damp you can use the other end of the cotton bud to dry it slightly before applying the patch. I just find this helps get the area as clean as possible so the patches can work to their fullest.

You leave the patches on for about 4 hours to overnight, depending on when you apply them. The patches turn from clear to white to indicate when they should be removed.  If the spot is still being stubborn you can apply multiple patches in a row until it is gone.

I find one or two patches are usually enough unless it’s a particularly awkward spot. These are super easy to use and really not expensive at all. The only downside I have with these patches is that they aren’t really sold in the UK (they really should be!) so I have to order them online. But I definitely recommend these and they are especially great if you need to try and clear up a spot quickly because you have a party or a particular event to go to, particularly if there are going to be pictures.
