“I am very surprised how well these work. first of all they’re SO thin, thinner than the regular cosrx acne patches. when i put them on they blend in with my skin so well that i forget that they’re on my face.”

I am a fan of cosrx's patches because out of all, they really do the trick for me that's why I was excited to try these ones. They're much more expensive but I think it's worth it since they stick better due to the bigger size compared to their regular round ones. I would say that this feels thinner than the red variant, but has a matte finish as well. This is perfect for areas in your face thst aren't flatabout 2 months ago
COSRX patches have been a godsent product to me so I definitely purchased this one to try it out! It worked better than the red and black acne patches by absorbing the gunk faster. Healing time was also shorter by this product! Loved this so much and currently waiting for BeautyMNL to restock it again so i can hoard it!5 months ago
Compared to the CosRX Master Pimple Patches, this one from the AC Collection series do a better job at calming red, inflamed spots caused by acne. Use this product on small zits and you can pretty much consider the work done; however for the bigger ones, I usually see the effect after a night (or two) of re-application. No worries though, because what I really like about these patches is that they help tremendously with pigmentation prevention. It doesn't totally eliminate black spots, but they do help lessen the scarring. Long story short, I do recommend this product. I think it's worth the price hike from the first model.5 months ago
I honestly was kinda skeptical at first but hopeful with the amazing reviews I have read about this product. It does not disappoint! I suffer from cystic acne and after applying a patch and leaving it on overnight I can definitely notice a significant decrease in redness, and swelling of the pimple. For all my hormonal acne sufferers this is a must have!5 months ago
I’m obsessed with pimple patches and I really wanted to love this one but I didn’t find it as effective as the other COSRX variants for some reason. What I did like was the variety of sizes although the extra large patch is a bit intense (definitely for home use only) it can be helpful for huge hormonal acne zits. It’s pricier than its siblings but I think a pack will last a while.6 months ago
I bought this patch when it was on its introductory sale price and I can say that I am satisfied with it! I can really tell that this patch helped heal my pimple faster. I understand that the unique shape of the patch is for better treatment of acne, but I still can’t get used to it. I felt like they sizes are bigger than normal bec. yes, their shape is different than the rest. Will I repurchase? Maybe, if I have spare cash. For now I stick to using the Happy Skin pimple patch which also has Cica.6 months ago
