Review | COSRX Acne Pimple Master PatchTuesday, May 17, 2016
Hi everyone! How have you all been?
As always, it's been sort of a while since my last post but now I finally have time to blog again! Definitely there will be more posts in the future.
Today's post is going to be a review on the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch that I purchased from Beauty Box Korea if you guys saw my haul from a little while ago. This has been an item I've been very intrigued about since I first heard about COSRX from Sam. I knew the patches were something that, if it worked, would be a huge staple for when it comes to emergency skin troubles.
What the brand says:
Protects wounded or troubled area from getting worse and maintains humidity of skin for faster recovery. It's a patch minimizing inflammation and caring damaged skins. Hydrocolloid type, quasi-drugs.
- Hydrocolloid protects wounds from dust and viruses in the air.
- Emergency & versatile & concentrated care with various sizes - 7mm, 10mm, 12mm.
- Convenient use.
- Low irritation.
- Clear - It is fine to put on makeup when you go out.
As stated, the patches come in three different sizes. For me personally, I find the most use out of the smallest sized ones so I find myself using those ones up first. The largest ones I probably won't use until I run out of the smaller sizes.
The patches itself are very sticky so they will adhere onto the skin for a long time without falling off. This video from Wishtrend will show you how much the COSRX patches work better compared to other brands.
I don't really wear this throughout the day. I only use the patches at night so I can sleep on it. I know they say you can put makeup over it but the patch is still visible so for me, I wouldn't wear this outside of the house.
Here are some progress pictures. I don't breakout often but I was undergoing a lot of stress a couple of weeks ago and plus, my new front bangs (now gone lol) were adding oil to my forehead causing some breakouts.

Pretty gross, right? But as you can see from the pictures, the pimple patches really helped my pimples heal faster! Usually when I just pop the pimples, it takes forever for it to heal and for the scarring to go away. The patches work a lot better than just popping the pimples and waiting for it to go away. The results are quick and very effective!
There really isn't anything else for me to say. I believe the pictures tell the entire story. The only thing I'll say is that it is sort of pricey compared to the other brands but I believe the COSRX work so much better so it's well worth the money. The cheapest place I can find it is on Amazon. It used to be around $3 on BBK including the shipping but I guess they increased the shipping prices there unfortunately.
- Heals pimples and scarring quickly
- Much more effective than just leaving the popped pimple out on your skin in the open air
- Protects blemish from bacteria
- Sucks out the gunk left inside the whitehead
- Stays on all day even after a sweaty workout!
- Comes in different sizes for different sized blemishes
- Pretty affordable (but a little more expensive compared to other brands)
- Nothing at all!
This is probably my shortest review but what else is there to say about this product other than praise? Seriously, this is an extremely handy product especially if you have a big event coming soon and you need to look your best, these patches will really eradicate those pimples in such a short amount of time. Whether you're like me who don't break out often or someone who has acne-prone skin, I think these patches are a staple for everyone.
I will definitely be repurchasing a lot of these and telling all my friends about this as it's one of the neatest and most effective skincare products I've ever used and I really hope you guys give this a shot too! I'll also be trying out a lot more COSRX products as I was extremely impressed by the first product I've tried. I'm going to be receiving the COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid soon so I'm excited to try that out as I've been suffering from a lot of blackheads lately, wahh.
I hope you guys have a great week. I'll talk to you guys later!
