COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch Review

If you have been reading my previous posts, I always mention about my occasional breakouts. My skin is very oily and acne prone and I am always in search for good and effective products I can use to combat my zits.

I have heard of COSRX (COS for cosmetics and RX for prescription) for quiet a while now and this is the first product ever that I have used under the brand. I also got the other best seller item which is the One step pimple clear pads and I will review it soon.

So for this patch..

According to the packaging:
Heals acne blemishes quickly while preventing future breakouts

Acts as a protective cover, absorbs pus and oil, non-drying


Packaging:
The anti-blemish patches is housed in a sachet packaging with resealable zip lock opening. I like the idea so you can easily put back unused patches to keep them clean.

It includes one sheet with 24 patches in three different sizes.
9 large -12mm
5 medium- 10mm
10 small- 7mm

How to use?
It is actually very simple. You just need to apply the patch on the affected area after cleaning your face. It will stick itself to the blemish.

My thoughts?
It may look like a light yellow patch but looks transparent when in contact with your skin. I read a review that some girls put makeup above it. The purpose of the patch is also to protect the zit from acquiring more dirt while it sucks out the existing one.

Effective?
It depends on the kind of pimple or the stage of pimple. I am not really familiar on describing it but active pimples, like the open ones, heal overnight because of this. Upon removing the patch the next morning, you will notice that it kinda absorbed the pus and dirt.

However, if you have the cystic one or the closed pimple, the results might not be as effective. I notice it helps transform it to an open one. Although, it may take more than a night.

Overall, I like to have a pack of this always in my emergency kit. Results vary on me, but most of the time it is effective.

COSRX is also famous for their actives (AHA/BHA). I will definitely check them out as well.

Price: Php190/sheet, Althea Korea

    I tried this out too and wasn’t too sure. As you said, it definitely removes some of the pus and dirt but it doesn’t really do any healing- just speeds up the process. Great review btw Loved reading this xoxo my latest post ♡

    i feel somehow blessed because i never had pimple breakouts so far thats why i havent try using any pimple removal cream/oil/wash. A soap and water is enough in washing my face. But I will surely recommend this COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch to all my friends who are experiencing serious pimple problems. Another worthy read. Thanks again miss keith!!
