I've found all pimple patches to be the same really (I'm talking purely hydrocolloid, no active ingredients). However, these have centella extract added. I can't say for sure it made a difference though. Either way, I find they all work really well for pimples that have come to a head. Key is to leave it on for a while (I leave mine on overnight, don't really seem to have an issue with coming off during the night).
i liked how this acne patch collection comes in different types of sizes. especially the bigger patch that is big enough to cover 2 pimples if you had them on the same side. Only complaint i have is that the material seems super delicate
Shipping was very fast. Product works okay. You need to leave it on for a long time
I tried another brand, I think Yes to Something, and every single patch tore as I pulled it off the backing regardless of how slow or gentle I was. These are thin and perfect to wear when your pimple is really red and achy. I am lucky to work from home, even before COVID, so I can wear them all day. Sometimes I dab a little acne gel on, let it dry and put the patch on. They help bring the pain, redness and size down. They also cover the redness which is a mental boost. Unlike some other patches, they stick very well.
COSRX is my favourite brand for acne product. These patches are very effective to calm down the inflammation of my pimple, before and after !

How to Use
- After cleansing, completely dry the area around the acne or blemish.
- Select a patch that's a bigger size than the acne or blemish to completely cover the troubled spot.
- As the patch goes on clear, it will turn white as it's removing the impurities from the troubled area. After the patch becomes white, remove the patch and cleanse the area.
