Most Helpful Positive Review These actually work!!!
I got these in a skin care giveaway and was thinking there's no way this could work... But I woke up and I'm not lying what so ever and my pimples were not red and reduced in size and with only using that one treatment on a few pimples they were gone in 2 days and they usually last way longer than that. So now here I am coming back to actually make a purchase and buy these awesome stickers!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Burned my skin, make my acne far worse.
I had a few tiny pimples on my face and chest thanks to adult hormonal acne and put these patches on before bed, hoping the spots would be better or gone by morning. When I woke up and removed the dots, the pimples were not only far more red and noticeable than the night before, but the dots had reddened and irritated the skin around them as well. The attached image is just two of the many spots where these dots burned my skin. It took a couple of days for these red circles to calm down and start fading, but my skin looked horrible in the meantime. Putting anything on my face afterward - cleanser, moisturizer, etc. - caused these spots to tingle and burn.
I'm very upset with this purchase. These dots were so expensive, but everyone at Ulta raved about how well they would work for me, so I thought I'd take a chance. Now I have a tin full of them that I cannot use, not just because they do not work, but because they actually make my skin worse.
Reviewed by 125 customers Don't work, don't waste your money
Tori from Kemah/League City
I was debating between buying the Truly acne patches that I loved and these because they were clear and I could wear these on work zoom calls but they do absolutely nothing. But when I asked the sales rep, she heavily pushed these ones so I figured I'd give them a shot. Most acne patches at least get the grossness out but these don't even do that, even when on an acne spot that it's clearly made for. I wouldn't waste your money on these. I could have bought three packages of the ones I actually liked for less than these. The only plus to these is that they do blend in with your skin tone and people can't tell you're wearing them.
Does nothing but rip out baby hairs
Kay from Boston
Clearasil brand works better- I've been using this brand for a month and absolutely have not worked once. I've never seen a difference after using a patch overnight.
Better Options Out There
AJ from Minneapolis, MN
I've tried several similar brands and each seem to have different pros and cons. These have two pros: 1) very discreet, barely detectable on bare skin; and 2) very secure, stay in place all day. But then there is one big con, which is why I won't be repurchasing: they don't help reduce or sooth blemishes. There are other options out there (Cosrx, zitsticka) that help get rid of the thing. The PTR dots are nice if you're just looking to protect the blemish, but I want mine gone!
These are a joke right?
I have bad acne and test anything from NY
These dots are TRASH. After 12 hours on my face, they took out maybe 2-3 blackheads (I like to test them on my nose in addition to pimples/cystic acne). My actual acne concerns were unaffected - even on acne that had already formed a head! I have tried a variety of acne dots and these are bottom of the list. I tried these out on a whim and it has only wasted my time and money. Avoid.
Will definitely buy more
Annie from Washington DC
I love it. Really work!
So mad I bought these
Eller from East Coast
I've been using the Max Complexion pads for years, so I had high hopes for this product. I did not find them effective. I used them overnight and still felt the pimple in the am, so I washed my face around them to let them work a bit longer...was so let down. Still no visible result. I got them on sale, so the effort to return them to the store or mail them back wasn't worth it. I trashed them. Last week, I purchased the Cosrx dots, and after one overnight use, I could see the gunk (sorry I know it's gross) on the little dots. So much cheaper and more effective.
Save your money
nikkib from ARIZONA
I tried the ZitSticka brand first and those are WAAAAY better. These flattened pimples, but the ZitSticka brand made my big & deep breakouts vanished. I've worn the Peter Thomas Roth ones on the same pimple for 3 nights now and the pimple has only gotten worse and bigger.
Would purchase again
Brittany from Pittsburgh, pa
These are amazing! I break out occasionally with large pimples so, I apply these overnight and it brings the pimple to a head. I love that the stickers come in two different sizes. I personally think they are overpriced though.
Boe from MN
These do nothing! There are much better options out there that are WAY cheaper.
USED TO BE GOOD...NOW SUCKS
Idk from Los angeles
I have used these several times YEARSSSS ago. The thing is, my acne ended up getting better aside the use of these dots (the dots only good for sucking up the white spots). And recently i bought these again because they were on sale, and DONT DO A THING. I put them on and take them off, i feel im sticking tape on them. Dont buy
Not worth the money
Trish from Chicago
It did nothing for me. I still had the big pimples, usually for might patch or sit sticks I can tell it's working because it will bring up something white to the sticker making my blemish flat but this one did nothing.
Tommigirl from Tri cities washington
These are nice when you need a little extra help versus regular zit patches. I like to use these first then follow with the other type.
Wooow! This product is really amazing.
Silvia from Corpus Christi
There's nothing else to say. You can use in the morning or in the night it doesn't matter. It's better if you use it at least 12 hours.
Great Product for Painful Bumps
CaryMom from Cary, nc
Had a large maskne event, with painful bumps. Ulta staff recommended these dots. Put a couple on the deep bumps before bed. In a.m., the pain was gone and the zits were significantly reduced. small zits go in a day! Gentle for post-menopausal skin!
Recommended by employee, HIGHLY disappointing
smrol from New Jersey
I was looking for acne dots in my local store and almost all of them were sold out, but the employee who I spoke to recommended these. She even said they were good for sensitive skin because they do not contain salicylic acid (even though they do). It seemed like a good deal and she was raving about them so we purchased them. I am so highly disappointed with this product.
First, it does absolutely nothing for under the skin pimples - when I remove the patch after leaving it on overnight (or at least 6hrs) there is NO reduction in size or redness. Additionally, when placing it on a READY TO POP whitehead overnight, the only reason anything came out when the patch was removed in the morning is because the adhesive took off some skin. The rest of the whitehead was still left on my face to be squeezed out and bleeding - and with my skin will likely leave a scar. I was so hopeful about this product and it was just honestly a waste.
So far very good
Floramargo from Cleveland,oh
I am under special Hormonal treatment, so I started getting In my face some pimples. I was looking for solutions and I found these patches, and so far they do their job.
Good for speeding up healing process
Adult Acne :( from Los Angeles, CA
I received this as a gift, but this is something I would never buy on my own. I have sensitive skin so I can only use it for like 6 hours or else the skin under the patch gets raw and red. It's kind of difficult to get off after usage because it kind of melts into your skin and becomes a gummy-like texture.
Good for speeding up the healing process if you place it on a popped zit. Essentially does nothing for cystic acne. Would not purchase again, extreme plastic waste, and not suitable for very sensitive skin.
Literally does nothing
Jae from Massachusetts
These don't stick very well and I noticed absolutely no difference after weeks of use. I'll stick with the rael patches for a fraction of the cost thanks. Definitely way overpriced for something that has zero results.
Best overnight fix
Taryn from Las Vegas
At the start of any blemish that might come up, I use this overnight. Clears up quickly. Peter Thomas Roth is my go to skin product line for so many things.
Binky from Kingsport
The best things ever
My go-to when I have a breakout
Jen from Seattle
These are great when I want to speed up healing big stubborn pimples!
Not sure they are worth it
Sarah from New York
I heard so many great things about these and was so excited to try them. My skin has been acting out like crazy lately. I have to say I was extremely unimpressed. While I feel they slightly work, they don't nearly compare to the Peace Out dots - I had much better success with that brand.
nmorlock from Texas
These don't do anything. I've used on a few different pimples and nothing. A different brand of patches I've used you could actually see the gunk it drew out, with these I haven't seen anything. I also don't see a difference in the pimple.
DO not purchase this if you want your blemishes to heal.
E from Philadelphia
These are actually a waste of money. Nothing happens when you put them on your blemishes. They do absolutely nothing. Do not waste your money or time with these patches. Try the Peace Out Acne ones if you actually want your blemishes to go away.
Anna from Ohio
I've used these for months. They are by far the best product I've found to help clear up pimples that pop up. It takes sometimes two uses but after one night it's already reduced in size.
