Skin type: Oily and sensitive
I think we all have had pimples and dark spots at least once. It is really difficult to get rid of the dark spots. I didn’t even have any pimples when I bought this product. But since the time I have got it, my skin started acting weird. I guess my skin wanted me to see the proper results of this product. So, I tried it a few times on my pimples and spots. Let’s get into the review.

My Experience with The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Spot Patch Kit:
This comes in a nice white pouch that has a zip on it. Inside the pouch, there are three small pouches which contain the patches. The packaging is safe and I can store them easily. Actual patches are nicely glued on a clear plastic sheet. It contains total 80 patches and there are two types of patches inside it. One pouch has 40 Spot Plaster Bands and the other has 40 Spot Hydrocolloid Bands. The individual pouch doesn’t have any zip. After I cut the pouch, it stays open. But the main pouch has a zip that helps in keeping them safe.
These patches are especially formulated to cure pimples and acnes. There are two types of patches: one is to cure pimples and other is to cover that area. You have to use both to see the results and to get rid of the pimples. Now, let’s talk about the individual patches.
Spot Hydrocolloid Band: Hydrocolloid band is to cure and reduce the size of pimples. In this pouch, you will get total 40 Hydrocolloid bands. These bands also come in two different sizes. There are 12 small patches and 8 big patches. The smaller one is for small acnes and the bigger one is for the giant pimples. Both the patches are round in shape. They are slightly thick and transparent jelly-like patches. The top side has a nice matte finish and the other side is a little sticky. You have to directly place these patches on clean face and don’t apply anything else on your face. Place them nicely on the pimples and cover with the patch. It doesn’t move from its place and stays perfectly until you remove it. The quality is really good and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. I am quite comfortable with this on my face and it never irritated my skin. You have to keep it for few hours. I prefer using it at night and removing it in the morning.
This Hydrocolloid band reduces the size of the pimple and heals it overnight. After you put it on your pimple, you can see a white spot over it and the patch starts to swill after few hours. It means that it has absorbed the discharge from the pimple. The company claims that it returns to its normal state but I haven’t noticed that. You have to nicely clean your face after the treatment. These are use and throw patches. It works great on the pimple which has a white spot on it. It helps to pull out the germs and discharge from the pimples. It helps to decrease the size of the same and dries out the pimple. It is an overnight treatment for pimples. It takes time to work on the pimples that are still under the skin. I had to wait for a day. I reapplied it on the 2nd day and it worked. Sometimes, it can’t absorb all the discharge and I need to clean that pimple with a cotton ball. It is quite easy and doesn’t need any pressure. It doesn’t leave a dark spot after the pimple is gone.
Spot Plaster Band: This is meant to keep the pimple safe from the other germs. This band helps to cover up the pimples and keep them safe for hours. This pouch contains total 40 bands and they all are same in size. They are round in shape and the top side has a nice matte texture. It is very thin and light weight. Place this plaster band on a clean face and keep it on for 8-12 hours. I have applied makeup on it and it works wonders. I had a party so I just covered that pimple with the patch and applied my makeup. It covered up the pimple well and I couldn’t spot it. It is transparent and it matches exactly with the skin. If you are going out and want to keep your pimple safe, you can use it. It contains tea tree oil which provides a nice soothing effect. I did notice that it helps to reduce the redness and size of the pimples quickly. It works as a nice protector for my pimples. It stays on for long and doesn’t have any side effects.
Overall, this is a combo kit which helps to protect acne and absorb the discharge. It also protects and covers the pimples. It really works well. For small pimples, it is a perfect product and it cures them well. I am using it for over a month and I am totally satisfied with it. It works slowly for bigger pimples and it needs a little patience. Also, these are not effective on spots. It is a good product to try out. It is an expensive kit but it is totally worth it.
