Hello, all! I absolutely hate getting a pimple. I hope everyone will have the same reaction. Who likes it anyway? It is so detested by all that it has become vengeful towards humankind. As soon as I see a tiny bump on my skin, I freak out and do DIY spot treatments. But, the biggest issue was not to get it crushed while sleeping, or not to take your fingers over it unknowingly. I was into K-Beauty world at that time. And, as a person who was into that happy phase of life, I came across Cosrx. And, the first product I heard about was the pimple patch. And, along with a stack of masks, I bought them too. Though many spot patches are available, this one seemed so raved about. Let us see how it fared for me to treat my demons.

My Experience with Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch:
The packaging looks like that of a medication with all the symbols and color and all! The packaging has to be cut open when using for the first time. Then you also have the ziplock to keep it safe and prevent from drying. The patches are all circular and adhesive in nature. They are in various sizes so that you can use the one which suits your current acne.
I get pimples a lot when I have to face a lot of stress. A few months back, I started getting pimples like never before, and this is when I was in search of everything related to acne. And, I came across this Cosrx Pimple Patch. I use them when a pimple is still in the starting stage. It will be flat or a little raised, with or without redness. It will take 4 to 5 days for me for the pus in the pimple to come out. It was always difficult to not to touch them accidentally. If done so, it will break and cause further problems.
I place the patch over a pimple after cleansing. When I follow my usual routine, the pimple is safe under the patch. I leave it overnight. The patch usually protects the pimple from rubbing against the pillows, accidental picking of it by hands. It is so adherent to the skin, that it doesn’t fall off even after turning left and right countless times during the sleep. After waking up, I remove the patch. I was not able to see a marked difference in the appearance of the pimple. Then after cleansing, I placed a new one over it. I find no problem in wearing them outdoors. It is transparent, and it glistens only under artificial light. So, nothing much to worry about appearances.
Overall, the patch doesn’t heal your acne overnight. It just helps in the process of healing, or I must say that it enhances the healing process. The white pus head shows up sooner than usual, and the overall lifetime of a pimple reduces, and the most important thing for people like me is that it can reduce the scarring. If you let your body deal on its own, the scarring is usually less. But, the pimple on a face is usually not a welcome sight, and we want it to go away as soon as it can. That is when our pimple cycle starts.
I first thought that the patch might be more harmful than being helpful. But, I was so wrong. It helps. It makes the pimple to go away soon, and by that, it sort of gives you some confidence that getting acne repeatedly is not something that you should worry about because you have something in your hand to make it a little better.

• Reduces the scarring to a great extent
Cons of Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch:
• Will not help you in erasing the pimple overnight. It takes time
