Have you ever had a zit that just popped out of nowhere and you wish you have something that you could put on it and remove it immediately? Actually, there is! And if you’ve been reading a lot of Asian beauty blogs, chances are you’ve heard about this product, if not, then read my CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch review and learn if it just a hype or not.
What is it?
CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch is an acne treatment that treats acne for what it really is, an infected wound. These little pimple patches are an overnight fixer to make whiteheads, blackheads and picked zits to disappear by morning.
The thin clear hydrocolloid patch feels similar to a hydrogel sheet mask in texture, adhering your skin strongly. It’ll stay on through showering and washing! It treats breakouts by eliminating infection and bacteria, which is what causes them in the first place. It’s able to break down debris from blackheads and absorbs gunk from whiteheads overnight, so you won’t experience a harsh dry patch from using this. It even helps flatten and heal huge acne faster!
APPLICATION: CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch is very easy to use. You just peel off the patch that fits that size of your pimple or zit, stick it on but make sure your face is already dry, and then leave it overnight. But if the zit appeared in the morning, you could also stick it after you cleanse and tone your skin. It’s small and flattens your pimple so it’s not really attention-seeking.
PACKAGING: It is packaged in an aluminum pouch that is easy to rip. But it has a ziplock, so you could seal it off very well to avoid the product from being exposed. While the patches inside are also sealed in another pouch and come in different sizes.
SMELL: It doesn’t have a scent.
RESULTS: There are not many products that I could vouch that it works 100% overnight, but this is one of those products that it does! Whenever I have a huge pimple, I just stick one of these in my face and tomorrow they’re gone! However, this only works on acne/pimple where the head already appears.
I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of my own acne and result, but I found one in Sesame Shop which shows exactly how it works on my acne. And if you’re wondering what the actual patch also looks like after an overnight treatment well…
I don’t have my own photo of it as well, but this photo is legit. The patch is full of gunk when you peeled it off. Which is both amazing and disgusting?
PROS: CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch works fast and effective! And it’s even good for those with sensitive skin because it’s only a patch.
CONS: It only works on pimple/acne where the head already appeared. If it still under your skin, you have to use an acne treatment product like VMV Hypoallergenics Monolaurin Id Gel.
