[REVIEW] COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch

My skin is breaking out due to shark week, so I just had to open a pack of acne patches to the rescue. My rescuer this time is COSRX's Acne Pimple Master Patch which I've gotten from my 3rd Roseroseshop haul last month (read about it HERE). I am curious about this brand because it is one of the hottest Korean brands on the internet.

COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch Review


The Acne Pimple Master Patch "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
Features
1. Hydrocolloid protects wounds from dust and viruses in the air.
2. Emergency & Versatile & Concentrated care with various sizes – 7mm, 10mm, 12mm.
3. Convenient use.
4. Low irritation.
5. Clear – It is fine to put on makeup when you go out."
Extract taken from COSRX's official website;

I love the packaging of this acne patch because it features a protective seal. It is convenient because the acne patches will have a good storage after opening and won't easily stick out from the inside, this problem occurs to me with typical acne patch packaging.
Instruction that needs to be emphasized:
"3. Do not change the patches until the size of the acne blemishes, pimple gets reduced, so that the patch can absorbs the impurities sufficiently."
This statement however, is false because I do not see any differences of its size after being used throughout the day and overnight.
I do not understand Korean but the images above shows the correct/incorrect way on placing the patches on your acne. English reference is available above.
There are a total of 24 acne patches, ranging from 10 small ones, 5 medium sizes and 9 big circles. I am cost-effective when it comes to acne patches. Rather than using the whole big circle on my acne, I cut the circle into half. Its so wasteful to use the big circle when your acne has a smaller size (if you ran out of the smaller patches). The patches have a  typical light herbally scent...but I can bare the smell, its not terrible to me.
The patches are not entirely flat, unlike other acne patches. Since it is not flat, the patches appear 3-D on the face. The color too is not entirely clear, which makes the patches to look obvious on the skin. The patches are still visible too even with makeup.
Its only been a few nights and trials since I applied the patches on my spots. So here are my observations;
Day 1: the patches reduce acne size overnight
Day 2: the patches lighten blemishes caused by acne
• Day 3: Acne is healed. Left only blemishes
There has been coloration of the patches after leaving them on the acne for a long time, which means that the patches absorb impurities thats coming from the acne.
Wish I could provide photo proof of the healing process to make it more convincing but I forgot :( booooo finn.

Pros +
• Heals acne
• Lightens blemish
• Efficient results
• Convenient packaging
• Cheap
• Variety of sizes to choose from according to acne's size

Cons -
• Patches look obvious on the skin
• Makeup does not entirely hide the patches
• Have herbally smell that people may not like

My final thoughts:
I like how fast my acne healed with this one without leaving any scarring. The patches too can be easily removed without hassle and irritating the skin, despite its strong adherence. I dare to appear in public during the day with an acne patch on my face, so if you are okay with going outside with acne patches on, why not~ I just want to heal my acne! hahahaha.
BTW, the acne patches were tried on normal hormonal acne. I am not sure how the patches will work on stubborn acnes. Why not you guys give yourself a try and see how it works :)

My rating:
5/5

Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Will I recommend?
Ofcourse, this thing heals acne fast without being harsh on the skin.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…

[REVIEW] COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Haven't had the wifi for a week so I didn't get to write a blog post. I feel so lifeless and dead without wifi considering that I have nothing much to do while on a semester break. Wifi is my source of entertainment(and life). I am that kind of person who chooses to bring Wifi over water if I were to strand in an Island.
Now lets get going with one of the most used, raved and recommended COSRX product; COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review
This product contains Natural BHA to control oil while helping to clear recurring pimples. A non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin.
It is one of the recommended products at Jolse since it has alot of positive reviews. it is priced at USD15.30 currently at Jolse, for a 100ml product, the price is not bad. I bought this when I thought that I needed an acne-fighting toner/active product when my skin is breaking out and since I've seen alot of the Asian Beauty people on Instagram implementing this product in their skin…
