Rated 4.44 out of 5 stars
I'm intrigued by these! No clue how they work so well. I'm 30 & I've have had chronic cystic acne my whole life. I've tried sooo many products & prescriptions. Nothing has ever worked as good as these! I wish I would've found these when I was 13!
I apologize if this is too graphic:
The 1st night I used one on a fresh "normal person" zit, not a cystic one. It was not white yet, but probably would've been by the morning. When I removed the spot dot in the morning, I could see white puss on the spot dot. Almost like it sucked it out overnight? Although, my skin was never broken. I still have a red spot on my face, but because my skin was never broken, it's disappearing at record speed.
The 2nd night I put one on an old cystic blemish. And by old, I mean it wasn't really active anymore, but was in that "dormant" stage where it's just a painless, hard bump that will later re-emerge with a vengeance. If you have cystic acne, you know these are what destroys your face! The spot dot decreased the size of the hard bump immensely after one use. Although, I found it came back slightly by the end of each day. So, I kept putting one on each night. After about 5 nights, the hard bump is totally gone! I also applied one to a brand new cystic zit, and it took care of it within 2 nights, no red spot on my face & no hard bump formation.
I also like these because they protect the zit from any serum, lotion or treatment that might be great for the rest of your face but terrible for the zit. I have very sensitive, combination skin & hormonal acne. I should also add that these are very gentle. They don't dry out the spot or cause the area to flake.
I've used a handful of different brands of Hydrocolloid patches and unfortunately these do not do them justice. I get horrible acne at the start of my cycle and depend on HC patches to alleviate my whiteheads. I've used and love another product by Peach Slices so had high hopes that these patches would work for me but was unfortunately let down. They seem to be standard and just like every other brand I've tried, but no matter how long I keep the patches on for my pimples are still just as puss filled and angry after removing the patches. Usually I can see the puss filling up the patch and a complete removal after about 6-8 hours. Peach Slices do not work for me for whatever reason and have found other brands to be more successful

I'm sure they are good for someone else but they didn't work for me.

I don't have acne prone skin so I don't use acne targeted products very often. I do get a few pimples around that time of month so I would put the patches on overnight. They stayed on really well overnight while I slept, which is why I gave then 2 stars. Unfortunately even after 8+ hours, these patches did nothing for my pimples. On the plus side, they didn't do anything negative either (no additional redness, tenderness, or irritation).

I buy these patches and next day, you can see the huge difference. Sometimes my flare upset are so bad, I wear these during the day.

These acne dots have saved me from acne scars! I dont get acne often but when I do its one giant pimple front and center of my face. These dots seriously help me from picking or popping my pimples. Within 2-3 days the pimple will be demolished by these little stickers. Highly recommend!

I always suffer from painful jawline acne that never comes to a head. With these patches you stick them right on and with using them overnight I saw and felt an improvement. Plus it prevents you from picking your pimples!

My daughter uses them and she loves them.

These hydrocolloid patches are ok, but there are so much better on the market. They don't stick as well as other brands I've tried (even on clean, dry skin) and they don't absorb as much pus. If you actually want an acne patch to help with your acne, I'd look at the Hero Cosmetics or CosRX patches. I used up this pack to protect a new scar so I wouldn't pick at it. Since these are more affordable, maybe worth it if you're just using them to keep yourself from skin picking.

Margo from Undisclosed
These are the best spot patches out there in our opinion! And believe me, we've tried multiple brands. Good on young acne prone skin and adults fighting acne.

It will definitely take the puss out but it will take the top layer of your skin off with it too. The purpose is to reduce the appearance of a pinple but now youll be left with an open pimple wound.

I've repurchased this item because it works really well on my acne/pimples and is reasonably priced. I wear it at night and next day the zit is gone. My only downside is that it leaves me with hyperpigmentation. Once the zit is gone there is usually a dark spot/ scar that peels later on and takes months and other products to get rid of. I'm assuming the concentration of the active ingredient in the patch is too strong for my sensitive skin. I've started reducing how often I use this and for a shorter amount of time in hopes that I can reduce/prevent the hyperpigmentation.
Heather from Undisclosed
So far they are okay. They definitely work but not super fast. There's definitely improvement in size!
Dana from Undisclosed
These work AMAZINGLY! I recommend them all the time
Madeline from Undisclosed
They're very easy to put on and you don't need any tools either; just the dots and your fingers. They're very light weight and barely noticeable. They fix to your skin easily and don't move around at all overnight. They really help with the texture of my skin.

I usually use the Hero brand patches but decided to give these a try. I put them on and overnight not only did it do nothing for my pimples, but it also irritated my skin and gave me a red ring around the pimple where the patch was! Not sure what happened but I know I will not try again.
Jaquelyn from Undisclosed
I can admit I was initially skeptical that these would actually work, but man was I wrong. Within two days, my big momma zits are flattened— within one day, my small pop up zits are nonexistent. What makes it even better is, you can visibly see all the gunk that the patch has drawn out. So yess, they work.
Khristine from Undisclosed
These help me not to pick at my acne. I put them on at night and the redness is gone by morning. I also like the different sizes. The reason for 4 stores is because they are a bit thick, so more noticeable if you wear them during the daytime.
Kay from Houston
I used to use the hero pimple patches because I would get really bad cystic acne during my period but then I tried the peach slices, pimple patches, and when I tell you guys that my pimples went away in two days and were completely gone. These pimple patches are amazing and really do work.

It works like Magic. I bought for my daughter she loves it.
