Most Helpful Positive Review Really Works!
I haven't had to deal with breakouts since high school, but since having my two daughters, I was frustrated to find that at 30 years old I was experiencing major breakouts again. I found myself having to experiment with tons of products, trying to find something to control my breakouts. The problem is now that I'm older I want to use more natural/organic products and finding one that zaps zits is hard to find. I came across these Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Zit Zapping Dots and decided to give it a go. The first night I tried them I put two on two new zits that I felt forming under the skin. They were easy to apply and stuck all night long. In the morning I removed them and was amazed to find that they caused the newly forming zits to shrink and come to a head so that I could easy pop them. By that night, the zits weren't red anymore, had shrunk, were completely flat and not filled, and basically gone. I've never found a product to do something like this!!! I'm a complete believer in these now and put one on a zit as soon as I feel one forming. It would usually take up to two weeks to get rid of a zit from the time it formed until the red spot went away. With these dots, it takes 2 days tops. I highly recommend these...they really work!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Save your money. Buy something else.
I get that some people say they don't agree with those with a lower review, however you should not have to go through as much trouble as using scotch tape to keep it on your face or a needle to get it off its final packaging. The packaging is flawed. Your money should be spent on a product that actually functions without ANY hassle. It should not take you thirty minutes to put a dot on your face. Don't waste the money. It seemed to help inflammation but it just isn't worth it. It stays on for a couple hours and beings to melt down your face. I tried sleeping in them because they said it works great at night. Woke up in the middle of the night with goop smeared across my face, my pillow, my sheets, and even my hair. Such a waste and a mess. Invest in a company who solely focuses on spot stickers like zitsticka. Their patches are stable, very functional, they will stay on longer than 8 hours if needed. No messiness. Go somewhere else if your looking for a functional product.

Mace from Salisbury
For the price, I love these patches! Instead of just wetting the area I'm going to place them on, I also put the patch under water and it applies perfectly. Be sure your hands are dry when placing it on or it WILL slide and cause the charcoal to spread all over the area. They are effective and I will certainly be purchasing again!
I would not buy again
Liv from Pennsylvania
Did not clear my skin and did not stay on my face
Not worth it
Megan A from Texas
They did absolutely nothing for my skin. They also don't stay on through the night.
Fiddly but effective
Melhuni from Queensland, Australia
These dots are a holy grail product for me, I tried them on a couple of BAD ingrown hair cysts from waxing. After one overnight application, the cysts showed drastic improvement and will apparently heal without surgery, to my immese relief. These cysts were showing no signs of resolution after several weeks of various treatment approaches. I had a similar episode a year ago resulting in very painful surgery, so for this to work is a miracle.
The packaging explains to moisten the area immediately before application, and dry hands thoroughly before removing the dot from the backing. I recommend starting by almost fully removing the dot from the backing, leaving only one edge slightly attached, prior to moistening the target area with a cotton ball. I wasted 4 dots before I figured it out.
It's definitely important that the skin is moist for the dot to stick.
I expected the dots to be solid colour but they are clear film with coloured lotion on the contact side. The clear film is delicate and not easy to lift.
Despite the initial frustration in application, I'm thrilled with the results from this product and will keep buying them to use on pimples and ingrowns in the future
Lily20 from Hattiesburg, MS
I hate writing bad reviews but this product was horrible. First of all, I could not get the patches off of the plastic without tearing them or getting the product all of over my fingers. Second, they will not stick to my face. My face is dry and clean, no oils. And they simply will not stick to my skin, only my fingers. I wish this was a better product for me but unfortunately it was not like that. Thank you.
They Seem to work, but stains
Moski2145 from Grand Blanc, MI
These seem to work. My pimples were greatly reduced by morning. I've noticed that tons of people say they will not stick, but I'm wondering if those people read the directions; you're supposed to wet the area before applying the dot. HOWEVER, it is recommended on the package that you sleep in them. The little dots slid a bit in the night and now I have bright red stains all over my pillow case.... which angers me immensely, the sheet set was new and expensive. Now I have to figure out if I can get the stains out. 2 stars because they did work, but if I were you, I'd use them on a day I'm going to be at home and never sleep in them.
This is nothing compared to the mighty patches
Madz from Chattanooga
This product has to be on wet skin, does not stick all the way. When removed it leaves residue that is stubborn to get off
Doesn't peel off so I couldn't use it
DNA from Bayshore Ny
I normally go for my truly stickers but the ulta I live near sold out. These were the only other stickers that didn't cost over $20 bucks so I gave it a try. WASTE OF MONEY. These stickers don't even peel off the plastic. Out of the 24 I was only able to use 2 stickers. BUY THE TRULY STICKERS. These are actual trash. Annoyed I couldn't even return these bc I tried to peel them off and wasting half of the product.
They Don't Stick to Your Face
KBix from Alabama
How are you going to make pimple patches that don't stick to anyone's face? Did y'all even test them at all? So dumb.
Waste of money
Sofia from Delaware
They barely come off the packaging. I went through around 6 dogs before I could peel one off properly. Big waste
B from NC
They don't stay on your face and after owning them for about a month they stick to the package but nothing else.
nicole from wa
i don't really like this, i was using these and they kept on falling right off. it doesn't work and don't waste your money on this.
Not bad. I like it.
TJones from Colorado
It worked pretty good for me. It helped with the irritation and redness and it kind of pulled the pimple out. I wore it overnight and in the morning when I took it off the pimple was pretty much gone. I'll buy more.
I really don't understand all the hate on this product!
Searching for solutions from Chicago, IL
I am getting married tomorrow (tiny socially distanced wedding of course) and I cannot thank this product enough!! Masks have been irritating my skin and I had this horrible pimple on my cheek that I thought I would never get rid of by my wedding. These dots don't work miracles, but close enough IMO. After wearing one for probably 15 hours, I'm in a situation that can be concealed with makeup!
They are a pain to remove from the plastic, but just do it carefully and make sure your hands are dry. Also, once you remove it from the plastic, run it under water for a second before applying and it will stay in place. I didn't have any issues even wearing it overnight.
I would give 0 stars
Disappointed from Raleigh, NC
Horrible!! Put the patches on successfully then woke up with black goop all over my face!! Had to wash off which irritated my sensitive skin and made the zits hurt?? Not only that, it caused a RASH on one side of my face. DONT get!!!! Even if it's the only pimple patch product in the store, it's NOT worth it.
Sara from Alton
Never really liked their products but wanted to give another chance on a different product. So I got acne dots and they aren't even sticky. Fell right off the clear thing when pulled out of package.
Worked for me!
Cass from Kansas
Not sure how the other reviewers are trying to get the dots off the sheet but I've never had an issue with ripping. They also always stay on my face at night and they've never "melted" onto anything other than my face. Just used one today and my pimple is already way done and not painful. I get these all the time for pimples!
I'd give NO Stars if I could
Justine from California
With so many other options on the market for zit dots I don't understand how these have good reviews. These are HORRIBLE! With no other zit dot do i have to wet my skin in order for them to stick and do their job, with no other brand do i have to struggle to even get the dots off the plastic sheet, and with no other dots do i have to deal with them melting all over my face and ruining my bedding. Not to mention the AWFUL packaging, seriously it's so much unnessecary packaging that is just wasteful. I wouldn't even reccomend these to my worst enemy.
Bought Twice! Will Buy Again!
Ami from Georgia
I've bought this item twice now and granted two dots didn't want to stick on my face but once it's on there it does its job! The pimple went down and was gone after 2-3 days (with proper washing + face regimen).
I also use the "Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Acne Spot Treatment" in the morning to help fight the acne. It works great as well!
Like many other reviews, the dots are a little difficult to get off and for it to "stick" on your face. Once I followed the directions thoroughly, it wasn't hard to use. After washing your face, dry it and dry your hands. Open the product, use a Q-tip to make the pimple/zit wet, DRY HANDS AGAIN, and apply it to the spot. Hold the dot there for a few seconds with dry hands and it'll stay.
How do they even sell these?
SadSarah from Colorado
I don't understand how these are still on the shelves, I wasted 2/3 of them just trying to pull them off the film. They just shred into tiny pieces are the plastic dot peels with the product still on the film. The few I have used I have patched back together on my face. I threw the rest of the pack away and will go back to buy another brand.
It gets the job done
Mares from IL
If you have regular fingernails these are so easy to peel off the sheet. I touched the tip of my faucet once I was done with the sink to get my finger damp, dabbed it over my problem spot, then stuck it in easy peazy. Wore it in my face overnight and they didn't budge nor completely dissolve (if it does you used way too much water). In the morning I peeled them off, noticed I'd clarified some areas and brought the whitehead out of another, washed my face and went on with my day.
Confused on bad reviews
Halet from IN
I am honesty really confused on all of the bad reviews. I was very hesitate on trying these after reading all of the reviews but I decided to try them anyway and let me tell you, THEY WORK. They stay on my face all night and I woke up with significantly smaller zits. They do leave a red residue on your face the next day but just take a makeup wipe to it and it comes off easily. I would defiantly recommend to someone if you need a big zit gone or smaller the next day.
M from Kennesaw, Ga
This product is amazing! I'll put a patch on at night, and the acne will be gone in the morning! I recommend making sure your hands are dry before attempting to take the dot off of the clear plastic. I usually cleanse my face and then moisten the affected area with toner before placing the dot directly on top of my acne. I haven't found anything better and the price is amazing too!
DOES NOT WORK
20SomthingYearOld from Redlands, CA
Sorry YesTo, but this is a product that has failed me and disappointed me one to many times. I have many photos to prove that I could not even get the sticker off of the sheet to use it. I followed all directions and even watched YouTube videos to make sure I was doing it correctly. Nope, it's this poor quality product. Also, the small scraps I was able to use did not do anything to my blemishes. I won't be buying again. Sorry.
Melted to my face
Ashley from Spokane, WA
I used the product overnight as instructed, and when I awoke, there were several of the dots half melted to me or my sheets. It didn't provide any zit zapping, as advertised.
