It's helped me with my hormonal acne

Hi!
I never tried a product focus on acne/pimples before, so this is the first product that I used and I love it. First at all I have hormonal acne on my chin due to my period, so it's on a certain dates. But recently, the past two months, the acne doesn't want to disappear goes hand in hand with hormonal and stress problems that I've had. So I decided to try the pimple patch by Cosrx, I didn't do a long investigation, I just went to my favorite Kbeauty store and I bought it.
I have three pimples and for each one, I used one patch for more than 8 hours. Instructions said that you have to remove the patch when it turns white as it absorbs the blemish, I just let them till they be super white and one of them I have to change for another one because the "puss".

And after two months waiting that my pimples disappear these patches were the perfect solution, is not magical, is not that the pimple goes away the next morning but its gets so much better.

Helps with a popped pimple

if you're looking for a patch that you put on a pimple without popping it beforehand you will be disappointed. As the ingredient list shows there are no active ingredients that help with the inflammation. Instead i use it as a protection against my dirty hands and as a sponge for all the gunk that makes it's way up after i pop a pimple that wasn't ready.
What i don't like about this product is the fact that it consists of mineral oil which is an ingredient that is bad for the environment, your skin and which could be easily replaced by other, safer ingredients that actually moisturize.

I often experience isolated breakouts and I originally thought that this patches would be the solution. Nevertheless, their performance was quite disappointing. It didn't seem that they stopped the inflammation development neither they speeded up the healing process. The only good thing I can mention about this product is that it prevents you from touching the affected area and spread all the bacteria.
