Yay or Nay? YAY!
Pimples are the worst. They bring us nothing but pain — ugly redness, yucky pus, scars. Why do we even get them?
Anyway, if you’re trying to hide or speed up the drying process, the Mia Care Pimple sticker is good to try. I’ve seen people wear acne patches when I visited South Korea in 2015. They’re only noticeable upclose. I use them for my big ugly cystic pimples. After a day of usage, the “head” of the pimple does come out (sticking to the patch like whiteheads/blackheads sticking to an effective pore strip or peel off mask hehe but I don’t recommend using these acne stickers for removing whiteheads/blackheads though).
These pimple patches come in 12 per box and costs P150 at Watsons. They’re nude in color and tries to hide zits. I cut up a sticker in half or quarters whenever I need some for smaller zits. Para tipid! 🙂 I like them because they help shield my pimples from pollution (hello, Manila commute) and from my hands (I sometimes touch them unconsciously, tsk).
They’re supposed to be medicated but I don’t feel any sting or pain whenever I apply them which is nice. I tried the Bench pimple patches (only P22 for 8 stickers) but they don’t do much good for me. They’re also very noticeable on the face since they’re bigger in size and not opaque with a beige color. I used them while sleeping since they’re cheaper compared to the MiaCare Spot Care Patch for Night. But I don’t feel any improvements with the Bench acne stickers.
These stickers don’t help reduce acne marks though so you better reach for another product to help you with those dark spots.
