Proven Beauty Hack: My MVP Pimple Patch 😅

I don’t get acne often, my main skin issue is clogged pored around my nose and chin. But when I do….they are stubborn! I’ve tried 4 brands of pimple patches and finally found my favorite! Now that I am 2/3 done with the whole pack, I’m ready to share this beauty hack! (Wow that rhymes).

💖Product 💖
OLIVE YOUNG Care Plus Spot Patch 84ea - $6.99 on Amazon
❣️Comes in 2 sizes
❣️Resealable packaging and protective plastic film to keep them sanitary
❣️Dotted tear-lines to make picking up patch easier

🧐How it works (official explanation by product manufacturer) 🧐
The patches are made of hydrocolloid Dressing :
- Protects the wound from water and dust, absorbs exudation secreted
- Due to hydrophobic molecules, adheres to the wound & due to hydrophilic molecules, absorbs exudation
- Absorbs exudation and whitely inflates, forming gell
- Protects the nerve endings of the wound area
- Barrier from germs and stimuli

🤪How I use them 🤪
- Wear during the day under makeup to conceal and protect pimples (ideally don’t wear makeup over breakouts but….you know sometimes it has to happen)
- Wear overnight to help pimples heal

🗓Day by Day Pimple-log 🗓
6/2 My uninvited pimple guest finally became inflamed after a day or two of feeling bumpy
6/3 The whitehead was visibly forming and the pimple was more sensitive as the day went on
6/3 p.m.: I accidentally touched it in the shower and it broke exposing the white head. So I sanitized the area, squeezed out any gunk, and applied the 12mm pimple patch over the clean dry surface after the bleeding stopped.
6/4 a.m.: you can see the patch is more opaque and the skin is less red. After I took it off I saw white gunk on the patch and it left the area much flatter. The pimple started to scab that day
As of 6/9, the pimple is healed with minor scarring that hopefully goes away in a few days.

These patches really help prevent further contamination and speed up the lifecycle of a stubborn pimple! Highly recommend!

    Really want to try them. My skin usually don't broke but when I Get a pimple sometimes closer to my period, it will be nice to heal with this patches.

  • Nicole

    the pimple patches look pretty cool, great review.

  • Tracie Nguyen

    Pimple patches is the smart invention ;) It really works and helps us much with the pimples even the small or big ones. I tried some kinds of pimple patch but OLIVE YOUNG Care Plus Spot Patch. Will try it some days

  • Jennifer Henning

    These seem pretty cool. I'm always looking for new products to try that helps out with pimples. Great review thanks for sharing this product.

  • Sheryl Stephan

    I've seen these patches but was always skeptical. I don't break out a whole lot but have my problem areas. Usually it's around my nose, my chin and occasionally my neck. I was most surprised to read that they can be worn under makeup if need be. That is awesome. Obviously, overnight would be ideal but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. I have tried so many different ways to get rid of a pimple over the years from rubbing a soap bar on it and letting it dry and stay on overnight, to toothpaste, and of course stuff bought at the store. As I've gotten older and breakouts happen way less than they ever did, I have my set of blackhead and pimple remover tools. It's an "extraction kit" with different tools for different blemishes. It took a while to figure out which tool works for what, but they are pretty effective. Of course, sticking a pimple patch on overnight is way more appealing! Thanks for the review! Very helpful!

  • Elizabeth Driever

    I also forgot to ask if these patches you are wearing come in different sizes?

  • Brandi Wells

    These sound like they really work, great review.

  • brandi

    Wow, thats impressive!

  • TripleB

    I have these and have been just waiting for a decent sized pimple to come around so I can finally take them for a test drive. This is a great presentation though. I always just gotta remember not to pick and pop pimples, just let nature take its course, and use these dealy bobs.

    I am well past the problem of pimples. I would have loved this product when I was a teenager. I used a toner or sea breeze. We didn't have as many items to choose from then as we do now. The aloe hack I want to try is for the puffiness a darkness around the eyes. I keep my aloe in the fridge so I bet this will feel great under the eyes.

  • Ja-Nee

    Aloe Vera is the best thing ever!! You can use it for so many great things. I use it mostly in the summer especially after a long day in the sun. Its so soothing and refreshing. I treat pimples the old school way and dry it out with a dab of alcohol. It works great for me and doesn't leave a scar.

    I think it's so hard to choose just 1, but if I had to I do want to try Aloe Vera as an Eye Puffiness Reducer. I have only used Aloe Vera once for a first and bad sunburn when I went on vacation in Florida. It really soothed my skin and made it less itchy in the healing process. Those pimple patches look awesome and I would love to try those out. I use to break out a lot and never knew how to really take care of my skin. Once I found a simple skincare routine, I followed it and added things along the way to see what else my skin may have needed and even today I do it. I have combination facial skin and I started off washing my face with a facial wash (My favorites are Clean and Clear with Vitamin C and Simple Skincare - Plant Based Formula), I made sure I put dry to avoid wrinkle in the future and then add a moisturizer. I started off with Cerave which is a #1 (for morning and night use) as well as Simple Skincare-Plant Based Formula Moisturizer (Light/for morning use) and Burt's Bee's Firming Moisturizer w/ Natural Retinol Alternative (for night use/need an even tone on face). I had a bad habit at picking pimples and scarred up my face (which I don't do now) which is when the Burt's Bees came it, It quickly showed improvements that both my husband and I noticed as well as other people. I also started drinking more water to avoid extra acne and I'm telling you it has improved my facial skin so much. I love beauty and want to show it to the world! I also do want to add a serum to my routine. I have used Keihls Plumping Serum.

    This looks like a great product for people who get a lot of pimples but I am not one of those. I will tell my granddaughter about it though and maybe I'll just order some for her too.

  • Rukhsana

    i like to use aloe mixing with my facial cram for extra moisture. i usually use it after using my face mask which sucks impurities to the core leaving my skin a little dry. i treat pimples by dabbing my aveeno clearing face wash on the pimple like a spot gel and it workds wonders over night. it does not dry out patchy on the skin like other spot gels do.never use toothpaste on skin as it does not work and the pimple is left dried out and it keeps the pimple stuck under skin for a longer time.

    I discovered it last year and I'm not a huge fan of hydrocolloid dressings as well! When I feel one coming on, I try to stop it in it's tracks with Burt's Bee's Targeted Spot Treatment. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't it, I dab on Dr Dennis Gross DRx Blemish Solutions Clarifying Mask with Colloidal Sulfur as a spot treatment and it usually will bring it to a head. I'll then pop it and slap on a hydrocolloid dressing (I use one by DuoDerm, which is meant for actual wound dressing, but it's overall a bit cheaper than ones made specifically for acne as you can cut and customize each patch as needed and use for it's intended use if you need to). When it's all flat and now just a discoloration, I'll use Naruko’s Face Renewal Miracle Essence or Dr. Dennis Gross Stress Repair Face Cream which, to me, helps fade it away faster.

    Care Plus Spot Patch wish I had this when I was acne prone as a teen and young adult. I used an ointment. I would recommend when using this great product use little or no make up for better results. Maybe dust powder around and away from your broke out skin. Terrific product only if you use it faithfully. Would try this!

  • Tonilynn Rosario

    wow great product and the results look good. Love the visual photos. I have been blessed with minimal pimples in my life ,but this product would be amazing for my teen who suffers dreadfully from pimples and whiteheads

  • josselyn

    I don,t really have any acne but when I get pimples I will try this out

  • yona garlit

    I am very pumped to try these patches. I don't have /never had acne but if I do get a pimple from hell it will be on or by my nose, or my chin as well. The ones on my chin seem to be the worse. I will definitely buy these just to have on hand. Thank you for the great review!!

  • katherine wu

    These patches are so cool, and they're pretty cheap as well! Whenever I have a pimple, I usually wait a few days before exfoliating my skin or using a mask. I have naturally clear skin, so sometimes the pimple goes away on its own after a few days.

  • Liz Ball

    I would like to try on my son who suffers from breakouts all the time

  • natosha miller

    Wow, that is pretty cool about the patches! I always well, hated putting patches when I was young on. I remember doing it and going to bed and it was just a disaster. Didn't clear anything and just was a worse night to sleep, since I loved to move around and toss and turn. So wearing patches, never worked out for me. However, these sound terrific, now that they are probably way more improved and attach better than they did in the past. I like the fast result as well. Something that really hooks one in, when you see guaranteed results the very first use. It looks very easy and very simple to use and love the results that you achieved with this product. That is so awesome! Thank you for sharing this product, it really sounds amazing and like magic! It really helped me out on rethinking patches for acne.

  • Reenah

    The rhyme 😆 Omg I have a huge pimple right now and can’t stop touching it 😣😞😫 I try not to touch of course, and usually let it run it’s course, I like to dab neosporin on it (I treat acne as if it were a wound 😆) and when it’s ready, squeeze the gunk out and apply more neosporin until it heals...think of it I think I still have some pimple patches saved somewhere..as always, thanks for the reminder😄..better go look for my pimple patches...bye for now!

  • Cheryl Drouin

    A great product too try, it would seem.
