COSRX – Acne Spot Treatment

It's so sad that I had to live without COSRX's Acne Pimple Master Patch in my life through my high school acne days. I would have absolutely loved to use this magical product and I am surprised that an American brand hasn't copied the concept and made it available to American teens.

I ordered the product off Amazon twice from the same seller, the first time it took a couple weeks to arrive and the second time it arrived in a week.

What is the Acne Pimple Master Patch?

It's a set of differently sized hydrocolloid patches that you can apply on top of your whitehead pimple overnight. It'll suck out all the pus from your pimple and leave it flat in the morning!

I have a really bad habit of popping my pimples, which is why I am left with the wreckage of small acne scars from my youth. The worst is when you pop a big pimple before you go to sleep and then it fills up again with pus and doesn't go away! The pimple patch sucks up all the remaining pus so that your pimple starts to go away immediately.

Active Ingredients

(from Soko Glam) Cellulose gum, Styrene Isoprene Styrene Block Copolymer, Polysobutylene, Petroleum Resin, Polyurethane Film, Liquid Paraffin, Tetrakis Methane

How to Use: 

  • Cleanse your face, especially the acne area and make sure that you skin is completely dry before application
  • Find the best patch for your acne size and place it directly on top of the acne/pimple
  • When the color has changed from transparent (your skin color) to white, that means that the patch is finished absorbing all the pus
  • Replace the patch with a fresh patch

One day, I popped one of my pimples in the morning and stuck the patch on to suck up the pus but also to cover the redness. My boyfriend didn't even notice until late in the day that I had the patch stuck on my face. It's blends pretty well with the skin. I read that you could cover the patch with makeup but I just left it as is.

Here are some photos I took, I apologize for the blurriness, this is before I got my Iphone camera fixed!

Here is the pimple after I had popped it. I don't recommend popping your pimple but I just really have a bad habit!

Here I am with the COSRX pimple patch on, look its almost invisble!

After about 8 hours. See how the patch is now filled with pus? Ewww but great! When you take off the patch you  can feel how the patch is puffier now that it is filled.

The formerly upraised pimple is now flat! The pimple went away completely after a day or two.
