These patches are really great but only for specific use cases. Products like this are really finicky and kinda expensive. You end up using them sparingly and carefully. They are effective but only for certain types of breakouts. In my experience they're meant for small breakouts that are a day or two from surfacing on areas of skin that are tin, flat, still, and hairless. This means that if you get a random breakout on places like your forehead, cheek, temple, it'll work great. They don't really work on areas like your nose, brow bone, lip, cupids bow, the curve of your jaw, and so on because these areas have things like thicker skin, distinct curves, hair, and or they're areas that stretch/wrinkle when you move your face. I would not recommend a product like this for someone who has or is experiencing a lot of breakouts, severe acne, or deep cystic breakouts. The patches are just not as effective on these types of breakouts and since these types of breakouts come in larger numbers, more frequently, you'd burn through your supply of patches real fast and be spending alot of money. In addition to the type of breakout and location on your face, these patches also get really finicky in the application because if you apply them on freshly cleaned skin at night you have to be extra gentle applying the rest of your routine in order to avoid bumping it off or disturbing the adhesion which sounds easier to accomplish than it is. The other option is to apply them over your finished routine however if you use something like a really wet gel moisturizer or use any products that are oily/greasy they won't stick and you end up wasting a patch so I recommend this method of application if you use a smooth moisturizer that you let sit for 30 seconds before sticking the patch on. This all being said I think these are great effective products, they just have a very specific use case.
I love the hero normal pimple patches so I bought these before prom bc I had like 3 under the skin pimples show up and I was hoping these would get rid of them but no! They did not do anything. I don't think the needles even puncture the pimple. And they're so expensive. I feel like they even made my pimples worse? Like they did not take the pain away at all or even shrink them, it just hurts to peel them off in the morning and leaves a sticky residue. But all micropoint patches don't work, I've also tried those zit sticka ones which are also terrible. Just put benzoyl peroxide on your pimples or something bc this does nothing

Love that this helped my cystic acne flare. I've worn this during the day and sometimes at night and it still clears everything up. The only thing is you have to use it on dry clean skin so I couldn't fully do my full skin care routine because it wouldn't stick. Still love < 3

I'm prone to deep pimples. I forgot that I grabbed these and patiently waited for a new pimple to come to ahead over a few weeks. It was slowly draining and I was looking for a regular pimple patch to prevent myself from picking at it. I wore it for one afternoon and the pimple totallt deflated. It also looks less red.

I dont know what the bad reviews are about. For me, the normal pimple patches dont really do much. These ones are great at bringing stubborn pimples to a head. They are expensive though, so I only use them on pimples that won't go away

These patches are a lifesaver! Works very well to take blossoming pimples.

I use pimple patches all the time. These patches above all others work the best. I will be purchasing again.

Caitlin from Prattville, AL
I finally found something that helps my skin! I had about 6 pimples that were on the skin and under. I put it on that night then a second night and it worked! I highly recommend usually nothing works for my skin currently struggling with hormonal acne so to have something that works is a relief.

these patches helped get rid of the most annoying "scar" i had (a deep pimple that popped under my skin) in two days!!! i am also a victim of those painful deep itchy hormonal pimples, these literally kill them off in like two or three days.
i really do wish they werent so pricey for only 8 patches, but for how well they work and how many times they've saved me, i will keep my mouth shut.
Dawn from Illinois
I use these for the zits that are below the surface, the ones that you start feeling long before you actually see them! And for the ones that never seem to come to the surface, if that makes sense lol! They work great!
Pina from Chicago IL
Even when i think ive finally gotten these to stick they just pop right back off. How is it supposed to work if it wont even stay where you need it? And theyre SO expensive. Terrible terrible patches.
judy from auburn ca
do not recommend if you have rosecea. works but is too harsh on sensitive skin. i am the wrong demographic for this product.
AJ from Bartlesville, OK
Got these for my football player having breakouts. These work so well without drying his skin out.
Lexi B. from Tennessee, GA
I got these patches because i was starting to form pimples, but when i put them on the points were weird! It feeld like super small needles are getting jabbed into your face! But its not that bad, because it can pop the pimple and the patch will suck out all of the gunk! But after about 15 minute of having it on you get used to the points on the patch and its pain free! Everytime ive used them the whole patch is white! You cant see anything through it! And my pimples look and feel a lot better! So i recommend these al lot!

I have acne-prone skin, and so I have been trying to find something that can help me stop having so many breakouts. When I tell you these are AMAZING, I am not lying! Whenever I see a pimple beginning to form, I just slap one of these on and it is way smaller and way less noticeable by the morning. Holy grail!!!

I occasionally get nodule acne which are super painful and cannot be popped. I put these on them when I feel one coming and it is like magic. My last one, I did not catch fast enough so it came in fully but after one of these on all day, it was virtually gone!
Cam from LA
This product definitely works! the bump was painful & very inflamed initially & I used it 3 times within 2 the days & the inflammation went down immediately completely! Definitely will buy more!
Amber from Oregon
I tell clients & friends THESE micro-point patches are a MUST HAVE! I've gone from having my cystic acne injected by my dermatologist WEEKLY to placing these on when I feel one forming. Upon patch removal, pimples are entirely flat! NO irritation!
KCAnne from Pennsylvania
Seriously the best brand! ALL of their products actually work on my cystic acne.
Robin P. from Undisclosed
I've never seen a similar product to this before, but I think it's been helpful for me when I feel a pimple developing. It's hard to tell, but I do think it's made a difference in the progression of the pimple.

received a sample of these patches that I forgot about..started to get 2 pimples on the same cheek and remembered the patches and slapped them on before a 9 hour shift at work.
I mask at my job, but the patches blended into my skin (i'm yellow-based tan) to where no one would've even noticed if I wasn't wearing a mask.
definitely saw the results they claim from one use and will definitely keep these patches in my beauty cabinet:)))
Lys from Florida
I was really hoping I'd be able to love this product, but unfortunately I saw no results at all. I woke up one morning to a blemish firming and immediately cleansed my face and applied a patch. I left it for 8 hours and repeated that night, and one more time the next morning. That evening, I was a fully formed pimple and it hurt. Back on the hunt I go.
harleigh from Kentucky
These are so easy to put on and wear all day and after one wear i seen an immediate decrease in redness on a pimple
Hanae from Las Vegas, NV
After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit skeptical of this product, but wanted to try it out for myself. I had these small pimples sort of clustered together, so I used a patch for it. After 8 hours, they were practically gone! My pimples usually come from hormonal issues, so if you want to use it for that reason, go ahead! Just make sure to use it before it becomes a white head.
