Pimple patches

What is your go to brand for pimple patches? I've been using the ones from Rael lately but I need to find a different brand because they don't have a strong enough adhesive for me :( they stick well when I apply them on a dry face right after cleansing but then the following morning or night I have to wash my face again and the patch either comes off or loosens at the edges and it'll go from clear to white. Has anyone else had this experience with Rael or any other brand?

I really love the Alba brand. I have rebought it so many times. It has a very strong stick. Stays on all day, overnight, no issue at all. I'm currently trying out the cosrx patches. They're a little thicker than the Alba ones, but I experience really good stickiness with those as well.

I haven't heard of Alba before 😮 would you say they're tough through face washing too?

Definitely do not keep the patches on for facial cleansing. It's also important to let the skin breathe. I will either use them during the day or overnight but never the whole day.

I like the Haruto ones, they have different sizes, there is a very large one that I like to use when I have a big acne growing on my neck. When I say "very large" i mean it is about 1" wide. I haven't really found such a large size from other brands.

I find that none of the patches actually do anything apart from preventing the picking. E.g. the very popular Cosrx pimple patches make my acne heal longer and leave scars when normally wouldn't. Having read lots about them I've given up as only the very expensive ones like Zitsticka could potentially work. Labmuffin did a video explaining that you'd need to actually pierce the pimple before using pimple patches for anything to be sucked out. That makes sense, however is risky if not done right. I instead use benzoyl peroxide as a spot treatment and it works a million times better. Particularly for the deep painful spots that pimple patches would have zero effect on.

For me, I use benzoyl peroxide to dry the acne, then apply a pimple patch the next day. But it depends on the type of acne though, normally these kind of patch works on acne with fluids in it.

From my experience they don't work on any kind. Cosrx one doesn't even have any actives to target the acne, it just seals it in which slows down the healing. Like when you put a plaster on a wound and it wouldn't close up.

yeah I always pop mine before applying pimple patches, and luckily they heal well under the patch and leave no discoloration

I like the Red COSRX ones and the Haruto "Original Acne Pimple Patch:in the green packaging...the latter are thinner around the edges which makes then less visible...

I use either the cosrx ones, starface patches cause they're cute or dots for spots which are probably the easier for me to get on amazon!

Pimples patches should not be worn for more than 8 hours, and going from clear to white means that it actually sucks stuff out. ☺️ besides that i love patches by Costco,purito and some by mi
