While social distancing, there's just so much time to just sit around, or scroll through Twitter, or watch TV, or forget that you're not supposed to touch your face and pick at it mercilessly. I recently turned one tiny blemish on my nose into something so much more (read me ramble on about it while trying the Visine pimple trick here). I ran out of patches and don't expect to get more anytime soon (after all, nobody has to see my face), and I can only hope that some of you have leftover patches from our rewards to tide you over.
We've offered Starface, Zitsticka, and Mighty Patch as rewards in the past, and you guys have tested them on pimples big and small, angry and inoffensive. There are patches with salicylic acid darts, holographics, and shapes, ones that are meant to blend in and others that are meant to stick out. You guys have tried and reviewed them all, some of you going to the lengths of showing before and afters and others giving us a peek at what the patch absorbed. 😈 We love a reviewer who shows receipts!
Here are the 5 best pimple patches, according to your reviews:
What you get: 32 patches in a smiley reusable mirrored case for $22 dollars. Refill packs (in either yellow or holographic) cost $18. Buy it here.
Starface has been a reward on Supergreat many times, so it's no wonder why it's the most popular pimple patch on the app. Even if it wasn't, these hydrocolloid patches would still be the cutest out there. Who doesn't want to look like a human constellation? Our interview with co-founders Julie Schott and Brian Bordainick gives insight for how they got the idea of dressing up people's breakouts, their own struggles with skincare, and the challenges (and rewards!) of building their brand. Fun fact: the "arms" of the star are meant to be grips. ⭐️
2. Mighty Patch Hydrocolloid Acne Absorbing Spot
What you get: 36 patches for $12.99. Buy it here.
My two favorite pimple patches are Starface (because they're cute) and this baby right here. For some reason, this pimple patch is extra absorbent and it stays on better than the rest. If you touch your face and move around a lot during the day/night, this is the one for you. It's not invisible to the eye but it provides good coverage for redness. A small plus: it's easy to see what this patch is absorbing because it turns white. ⚪️
3. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch
What you get: 24 different sized patches for $5. Buy it here.
This pimple patch is very similar to Mighty Patch, but you get some large and some small patches that you can use depending on the size of your target. Performance wise, this patch is also very effective and has a strong grip on skin. 💪
4. WKND Cosmetics Simple Pimple Patch
What you get: 48 patches for $17.99. Buy it here.
WKND Cosmetics offers more patches for the same price as competitors, and they also have a "Snooz" patch for better grip while you sleep. Almost all our reviews for this product are positive, which begs the question; should it be number 2 or 3? Decide the fate of this patch by adding your reviews below. 🏅
5. Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Zit Zapping Dots
What you get: 24 patches for $8.99. Buy it here.
This pimple patch is in last place for a reason—the reviews are very mixed. Some like it, others (really) don't, but either way we appreciate you all for your honesty. Do you agree? Disagree? Let us know below. 🍅
I want to know which pimple patches are your favorites, and I added my own below! I need answers; where is the love for Zitsticka? Is WKND Cosmetics really not one of your top 3 patches?
Add your review and I'm going to hand pick my 5 favorites and award that reviewer with 10 Supercoins! You have until 03/22 at 6PM EST. I love a good before and after or demo, and as a big fan of Dr. Pimple Popper, I truly love to see it. 😈
