Most Helpful Positive Review Reset your skin from the inside out
I have always had trouble with acne, it started when I was in my teens and never left me. It hides dormant and reveals itself whenever it wants. It gets worse during the hormonal months, and takes a long period of time to heal. I try different methods for preventative measures, but I think now they've just become part of my everyday. I cover my pillows in clean shirts every night, clean my makeup brushes, don't touch my face, eat clean, take supplements and vitamins for inflammation and detoxing. With living such a busy schedule, it gets hard to stay on track sometimes, and I have to rely on the vitamins to get me through being healthy, but also to aim towards my erupting face. I've entrusted in this product to, sort of reset and clean me out. I have a thing for sugar, so that's what keeps me up at night, and coming for my face. All of these ingredients combined have the super power defenses to clear away all of the bad. Magnesium, zinc, fish oil all beneficial for your inside sans the skin outside; as well as the benefits of a probiotic, working to fix your insides if anything is wrong with them, and making sure the machine is up and running properly. I will continue to take them and see the changes in my flint and my overall health. I am excited seeing the continued transformation of my face, so much so, that I order a second month.
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.

I used this a week ago and it didn't do anything for the pimple. It left a red circle around where I had it and the pimple has now gone away but the circle is still there. Damaging for your skin
Where have these been all my life??? WORKS
KStirling from CA
I can't even describe how shocked I am with this product. Yes, they are pricy, but when you have a cystic pimple at the most inconvenient time, I'll pay the price any day. I don't get them often, but when I do, it's always like a 3rd eyeball staring at everyone. I've tried every product and hack out there that claims to work on the deep ones, but without fail it swells terribly and lasts weeks. Makeup doesn't even conceal them when my face decides to swell up like I got punched.
I got home from work on Tuesday and noticed one starting. I put a patch on before bed and slept with it overnight. In the morning, I had some slight swelling, but nothing compared to normal and no redness. Since it was still the same size as day one, I tried another patch on night two. When I woke up, the additional swelling was gone and it still wasn't red. The only thing there was a small lump where the pimple started. The pain was already subsiding, so I did not treat the pimple again. It stayed small enough without redness that my makeup concealed it the rest of the week. It is now Saturday morning and it's as if it never happened. Completely vanished!
Less than 4 days and I can go makeup free this weekend without my embarrassing 3rd eyeball. I don't care how much these cost. In the end, it saves me pain, embarrassment, time, and no more makeup-caking to cover them. It's a win all day long.
It works, with patience
Sam from Denver
I've been eyeing these patches for some time now for the random bigger zits I might get. I was feeling one large pimple coming and decided to go for it. I have been wearing the Killa patches over night, and after a few nights, I have seen results and this morning the "mound" (if you will) decreased substantially! I find that pairing these with the goo getter patches helps get the rest of the gunk out. Fingers crossed I won't have a massive zit in a while, but if it happens, I will be sure to have these stocked!
I think they are worth it
sis from SC
I get random nasty zits around my chin/mouth. I put this on when I feel them coming. I think it speeds up the recovery. I'll keep buying these forever.
Alex from Los Angeles
This is has been such a game changer for my skin! I often get one or two big breakouts at a time, somewhere obvious and obnoxious like my chin or forehead. One sticker always flattens them OVERNIGHT and it's almost like it never happened! As someone who used to pick at my skin, this product has truly saved my face!!
Expensive but they WORK
Katie from Missouri
I will totally agree the price for these is absolutely insane and the only reason I tried them is because I tried every other one in the store.. I had a cystic acne flare up and I swear OVERNIGHT it was like the pimple had never existed. I save these for emergency situations , but if you want some fast magic, this is it!
aedie from Ca
I hardly leave reviews for anything but I had to for this thing. I docked a star because of the price, but i had happened to get it during the 21 days of beauty so i guess it was better then haha. i had a huge pimple that would not go away but using this pimple patch, it magically reduced after each use. I had to use it at least 2 times because of how big the pimple was so this pack is a little expensive for that aspect, but it's still a good product none the less.
Eva from Washington
These work super well! I love the little needles at the end they seem get deep into the pimple and the next day the pimple is much smaller! The only reason for the 4 stars is there super expensive for how many stickers you get but if your going to a big event these would be worth the it!
Not worth it for the price
Mita from Oregon
It's very expensive and it didn't really work. Weirdly I also had diarrhea
Cobra021498 from Moore, OK
Since they're so expensive I use them on my most stubborn cystic acne. Your face has to be clean for it to stick. Sometimes I have to use 2 nights in a row but it's not the stickers fault, cystic acne is not easy to treat.
IT WORKS!! WORTH EVERY DOLLAR
Kmerritt88 from Baton Rouge
These are the best, they really do work. I love them. Also you can't see them on the skin so great for covering up those big red pimples. I wear mine under makeup, no one has ever noticed. Reduces the appearance of pimple within a night!
Amelia from MI
I really wanted to love this product but I can't even get the patch to stick long enough to work. I tend to get my most painful zits along my chin and jawline. I guess this patch couldn't handle that my zit wasn't on a completely flat surface but it would not stay put and fell off within ten minutes each time I tried. I've had much better luck with Cosrx but I was hoping for a patch that would help my most painful acne.
I also don't see the point in paying for the cleaning swabs. Obviously, I'm putting the patch on after cleaning my skin so I don't need the extra cleaning product??? This was a lot of money to spend on a skincare product and it felt like a waste to pay for an added product that feels unnecessary.
I'm glad other people find that this patch works for them, but I feel super let down. Rated two stars instead of only one since maybe I can get it to stick to a part of my face that's not my chin even though my chin is the place that needed these patches the most.
Worth the price
Morgan from Maine
I was hesitant about paying this much for a pimple patch, but let me tell you, it was worth it. I have tried many brands before and it is the only one that has actually helped bring a cystic pimple to the surface.
Not good for the gut
Michelle from Texas
This gave me really bad diarrhea idk if its normal hopefully someone answers my question
EJ from Philadelphia
Go buy these. I immediately bought more after trying one one time! I've always been suspicious about pimple patches because how the - do they work? But after trying them when they were on sale, I'm sold!! They literally made a huge uncomfortable red pimple under my chin disappear while I slept. I went to sleep and when I woke up it was gone. Stop what you're doing and buy these right now!!!
Effective but expensive
frombo from HI
This stuff really works but it is needlessly expensive. I buy them because it is the only thing I have found that actually minimizes those zits that you feel coming - you know the ones that hide under your skin hurting your face before they emerge to look even more horrible.
I put one on at night and the zit is significantly minimized the next morning even if it hasn't surfaced yet. However I am judicious and only really use them for those bad boys because, at 3.75 a patch, I am not wasting them. Since I really only get cystic-type zits once a month or two, this is not an unreasonable expense for me.
Also, the kit comes with these little wipes you're supposed to put on before - they are not great. I save them for other purposes but don't love to use them in conjunction with the patches.
Brianna from US
I've been using these for about a year and they are definitely a product I can't live without. They are amazing for cystic pimples and sometimes if I can feel a pimple starting to form I use one of these on the spot overnight and the pimple is gone before it even had the chance to appear. The only bad side is that for stubborn cystic pimples you have to use about 4 patches on one pimple, and even then it doesn't fully go away. This definitely sucks because they are so expensive. When it comes to stubborn pimples like that it may not make them disappear, but it definitely makes them go away a lot faster than they would have! I love these patches and definitely recommend them. They're worth it!
M from Ohio
I just wish they weren't so expensive but these are one of the few things that work on the deep, painful cystic acne I get. I put one on for a couple hours and the patch draws everything to the surface, reducing pain and swelling.
Dont use if you have issues with Salicylic Acid!!!!
Lolo from Philadelphia
Would give zero stars if I could.I got this as part of a bonus gift from Ulta because my purchase was over $80. There was only 1 zitsticka in the pack but 1 was all it took. My zit doubled in size by the next morning. It was shiny and puffy and dark. Now using Aztec clay to try to shrink several days later. Dont use this if your skin doesn't mesh well with Salicylic Acid, that's the main ingredient. Made my skin worse.
Kaylanm88 from Baton Rouge, LA
I get these under the skin cyst type of acne on my chin about once a month and I usually can feel them coming, as soon as I notice the knot under my skin I apply one of these and OMGGG what a difference. I wear mine for 24 hours and even apply make up over it. It covers the redness also and makes it much flatter. If the pimple already has a head on it this will not work, you have to apply right away before it gets big. Cant wait to try the dark spot patches.
CJ from Colorado Springs
I did not love these — or even like, for that matter. Way overpriced to see little to no change for common chin zits.
SoniaM from North Augusta, SC
I've used this on cystic acne which are the bumps under the skin. Most of my cystic acne are painful. I had a sample and it reduced a pimple overnight. I wish I had another at the time to use the next day to get rid of it completely. I ordered this kit and used last night on 5 cystic acne pimples. This morning, I notice a huge difference in 3 which are almost completely gone.
Decreased size of zit overnight!
Tatiana from Las Vegas, NV
Took most of zit away but not all. Ended up buying something else to assist with the process.
not a Killa
Katsons from Media,PA
I was not happy with this product at all. It did not relieve my sever acne breakouts. I thought I could use this and not get the cortizone shot. I was just disappointed.
Need to use right when you feel a zit coming
Nik from MN
I break out around my period each month and last month I woke up feeling a zit coming on my chin. It was deep and just started hurting. I tried a patch that night and the next morning I thought it didn't do anything. The spot still hurt. However the following day it was cleared up and I couldn't feel it anymore. It got rid of it before it even came close to the surface. It was amazing!! That said, I've used it on zits that have a bump but not a head yet and it didn't do anything. These are truly for very first day you feel a zit coming.
