Here’s a not-so-fun fact: I still get acne breakouts as an adult. While I would argue that nobody’s skincare routine is foul-proof, I have to say it’s very annoying when you think you’re doing everything right and then a pimple pops up on your face.

Thankfully, I found a solution. Not only do 15,000 shoppers on Amazon swear by these pimple patches, but they’re also so inexpensive.

A hydrocolloid sticker that’s fast-acting on the skin (and yet super gentle as well), these discreet patches extract pimples, speed up healing, block bacteria and help prevent acne scarring.

“I do not claim to understand the science behind these tiny miracles, but they have changed my life,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick, pick, pick.”

If you can believe it, very few people have anything negative to say about these pimple patches. Even those who didn’t give the product a five-star review still mentioned that they noticed some improvement.

One reviewer wrote, “They aren’t bad, but they didn’t really help with my breakouts; although left on overnight and taken off in the morning, some whiteheads did come out – much better than popping a pimple.”

If you’re looking for an affordable, effective acne solution that’s tried and tested by a beauty editor (me!) and thousands of Amazon shoppers, give these pimple patches a try.
