Most Helpful Positive Review Helped reduce onset of cystic acne
I had two very large, painful cysts coming in underneath my skin on my chin (that time of month) and I knew that I needed something more potent and powerful than my benzoyl peroxide cream. This was my first time using this product, so I was unsure if it was going to work, but the idea of micro needles with acne fighting ingredients appealed to me. I had to use 6 patches total (3 for each cyst) in a span of two days which is why I only gave it four stars. Both the cysts reduced in size after the third set of patches (which I kept on for 6+ hours each time) and on the third day, both of them turned into white heads. For those who have struggled with cystic acne for a long time, you will know that large cysts turning into white heads is actually a good thing. They naturally popped in the shower on the evening of the second day and I put my calendula oil on it religiously for two more days. It's been 4 days since I first used the patch and the cysts are completely gone/flat and the purple marking from the cysts have significantly gone away with the calendula oil. I would definitely buy this product again and I highly recommend it for anyone who has those flare ups every now and then. It's a bit pricier than other pimple patches, but think of it comparable to a visit to the derms office to get a cortisone shot just less expensive and takes several days to work.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not cost effective, and SO much plastic
I really, really want to root for this product. I bought the 8-pack. I didn't use the "cleana" because it contains alcohol, but the "killa" easily halved the lifespan of the deep underground monster that had been brewing on my face. After the first use, it seemed to get worse (a larger area under my skin felt hard and inflamed,) but I took the risk and tried another night, and it ended up WAY smaller. Another couple nights and it's pretty much flat, whereas by this point without the zitsticka it would just be starting to become a giant red bump that I would just have to wait to become "ripe" enough for a traditional hydrocolloid patch. If the package contained 16 "killas" instead of being half-filled with swabs I won't even use, that would probably swing me over the edge to buy it again. But that, combined with the insanely wasteful amount of packaging, gives me pause. Each patch is in its own individual pouch, and then has its own individual plastic clamshell on top of that. I understand the necessity - a traditional "page of stickers" approach as seen with other patches wouldn't work, as they'd squash the micro needles. But there has to be a more responsible way, especially given how many patches are needed to achieve results on just one zit.

These are MAGIC. I don't know what they are but I put one on a pimple that was coming in (as they say to) and it was gone within HOURS. I never write reviews but I needed everyone to know just how amazing these are.
Kat from Texas
I had an incoming pimple on my nose so I cleaned my nose with the cloth that comes in the box and left the patch on over night! It was gone in the morning!! The removal of the patch hurts a bit but it is worth the results.
Only patch that kills zits under the skin
Skincare junkie from Washington
I'm a huge fan of the CosRX and mighty patch, but those only work for zits on the surface. I don't normally get cystic or DEEP acne, my skin is generally clear. But recently I got a very deep zit that would started to hurt because it was so deep in my skin. My normal patches weren't doing anything so I tried this one. It's a two step which I think helps. The micro darts didn't hurt but felt poky which I felt was productive. I slept with the patch on and when I peeled it off, the patch was clean. I just pressed to the side of the zit and EVERYTHING came out. Much more than I thought was possible. The zit is completely gone and now just healing. I recommended it to a friend who had the exact same experience.
I've bought a backup pack now. I would use these for anything that nothing else will solve. It's definitely worth having on hand.
Great for cystic acne!
Ash from Arkansas
I get very large, very deep, VERY painful cystic zits every month without fail. These are fantastic for reducing the size & especially the pain of the cystic zits! They don't completely go away (hence the 4 stars instead of 5), but it turns them into more manageable, smaller, less painful zits that last 1/5 of the time. This has become a staple in my skincare collection!!
Very good product
Azizou from CA
This product works very well. I get really bad pimples everytime I‚Äôm getting my periods, and I just put one of these zit killa and by the next day the redness goes down and the pimple hurts significantly less.
Love these things!

Amazing! I have to keep them in stock in my bathroom. Clutch for mask-ne
Works! But pricey
Julia Hi from US
These seriously save my skin and help my pimples go away fast with minimal scarring! I only wish they weren‚Äôt so pricy.
Amazing - I just wish there were more!
Olya from US
These work super well but I had to use, like, three at one time so they ran out quickly and they are so expensive :(
Alexis D from US
I liked how easy the product is to apply and it is easy to get it in the exact location that you want. My only issue with this product is I have trouble determining what type of pimple to put it on. I noticed that there have been several times where I put the pimple patch on for the recommended time and my pimple does not change in appearance. Maybe I will have to do multiple attempts with certain pimples, but sometimes I feel like I am wasting a patch if it doesn‚Äôt help.
Elissa B from US
Since March I have been getting cystic Acne EVERYWHERE on my face but Zitsticka really helped. It did NOT make it go away overnight BUT it reduced the pain (when I felt one coming) and reduced it's lifespan. For small minor pimples it works wonders.
Jamie from US
These really help with my cystic acne if you use them the second you notice a pimple forming!!
Hope Sch from US
This is the only zit patch that actually makes my zits go down considerably by morning! Even the deen underground ones that never come to a head are significantly reduced overnight!
Ruth from US
This works well on diminishing presence of zits.
Does the job
Shlz Kay from US
I was skeptical for sure. 7 months later, if my skin decides to freak out, I know my go to will not let me down! This little patch is packed with some serious acne ammo. Let‚Äôs just say, I‚Äôm a believer and I need a refill of this this stuff stat. Gotta go order... and you should too!
Michelle from CA
The cleaning pads are amaizing! My pimples dont last as long as they normally would and the scarring has decreased as well. Overall great product!

These little stickers really work. Would def buy again and again.
Pretty good at breaking up cystic acne!

Works like a charm

These patches are SO worth it, they are a life saver.
Awesome spot treatment
Melly me from US
These stickers have become a staple in my cabinet for when I have an occasional zit pop up
So good that I‚Äôm on auto delivery.
Ashley A from CA
These are the best pimple patches I‚Äôve used. Love the sensation of the micro darts - it makes me feel like it‚Äôs REALLY getting in there. I use them overnight and know that my occasional deeper/cystic pimples will be significantly smaller in the morning. The only thing that would make this product better is if there was a Canadian warehouse for CAD pricing and shipping!
Only thing that works for me!
Jessica from US
I get cystic acne, and these are the only patches that I‚Äôve found consistently work every time. They drastically cut down the amount of time my breakout lasts - I could have one for two weeks, but these take it down to just days.
VivSavag from US
These patches are really great for eliminating those painful, deep-rooted pimples and preventing them from turning into inflamed, angry, monster boils. They don't fit so well on areas around my mouth, particularly under my nose/upper lip area, but for the rest of my face, they have excellent staying power. I can wear them all night, and the next morning, the pimple will have dramatically improved.
Works Really Well... Sometimes
Emily from US
When you have the beginning of a zit, it works really well to force it to come to a head super quick versus sitting as a bump under your skin for days. However, if a zit is too far gone, it doesn't work as well, so you have to get the timing right.
Works really well
Claudia from CA
This product is effective and works! However I would suggest it for someone with the occasional deep rooted pimple. However, at this price point, I'm not sure if this is something I will continue purchasing as I feel like I get through the box too quickly. Still a good product though!
Not the miracle product I was hoping for, but willing to try
Nish Cha from CA
I bought a box of ZitSticka back in September 2020. I have mostly clear skin with the bi-weekly massive hormonal zit on my chin, and while it‚Äôs only one spot at a time, mask wearing has worsened it and I now always have an active, healing pimple or dark spot somewhere on my chin. Out of the 5 patches I tried, only ONE fully stopped a zit from forming, as advertised. For the others, TWO didn‚Äôt make a measurable different, and TWO slowed down the growth and turned a cyst into a large whitehead more expeditiously. Giving the product 3 stars because I wasn‚Äôt impressed, but for the ONE time it did save my chin, I‚Äôm willing to try another pack. Will update when I do!
