These ‘magic’ pimple patches have been hailed as ‘life-saving’ by thousands of beauty fans – and they’re now half-price in Amazon’s Black Friday sale
Whether your time of the month is wreaking havoc on your skin, or you have a pimple on your forehead that just won’t budge, this acne treatment that ‘works overnight’ may just be the answer to your spot-free prayers.
Luckily, with Black Friday just over a week away, Amazon has dropped the price of plenty of skincare goodies, including our favourite COSRX Master Pimple Patches, which are down to £24.63 from £48.99.
While they still may seem pretty pricey for pimple patches, considering you’re getting 240 patches, in three different sizes – we think it’s a pretty good deal.
The skin-saving stickers are infused with hydrocolloid which absorbs impurities like puss and fluid from your spots – gross we know, but it’s just what you need for a speedy spot clear-up.
With an average rating of 4.5 out of five, and over 3,000 five-star reviews, it’s not hard to see why these pimple patches are so popular amongst beauty fans.
One delighted customer calling them her ‘go to spot stickers’ added: “I’ve been using these for years and can vouch that they do help to reduce my spots even the most stubborn cystic ones. They’re clear so they blend in with my skin and makeup.”
A second said: “100% recommend these spot patches for black heads and white heads. I also tend to get a lot of under the skin red spots where you can’t pop them and it reduces inflammation.”
While a third wrote: “Whenever I start using a new skin care product, change a medication or vitamin, or get stress or hormonal acne, I put a patch on after cleansing at night. Usually the next morning the problem’s gone. Tougher acne spots might take a couple days. This is the seventh time I’ve bought a 10 pack. A staple skin care product that I always have on hand at home and when I travel. I love this product.”
While many raved about the acne treatment, some were left feeling pretty disappointed with one customer saying: “I’ve tried acne patches in the past that really made the pimple go away overnight, these definitely help reduce pimples in most cases but I found they weren’t the best.”
The brand suggests using cleansed, dry skin to help the product adhere to the skin, and use before applying any skin care to improve adhesiveness for the best results.
Each pack contains 24 patches in sizes S (10 dots), M (5 dots), and L (9 dots) – so you can tackle any sized spot without picking it.
You don’t have to worry about them irritating your skin either as they’re fragrance, alcohol, paraben and phthalate free – making them safe and suitable for all skin types, tones and textures. You can pick up the best-selling pimple patches here for just £24.63.
Seeing as they’re still pretty pricey, a great affordable alternative are these Dots for Spots Acne Patches, priced at £5.39 for a pack of 24. Working in a similar way to the COSRX patches, thousands of shoppers have referred to them as their ‘go-to spot treatment’ and ‘little lifesavers.’
