While pimple patches were a bit hard to come by just a few years ago, now many brands offer these medicated stickers that can help shrink pimples and zits. There are even some available in cutesy designs. The idea is that these patches are coated with blemish-battling ingredients (think salicylic acid or hydrocolloids) that can help eliminate the spot before it becomes large, inflamed and irritated.

The Dots for Spots Blemish Patches have been popular in the U.K. for months, and now they’re taking off here in the States. Amazon shoppers are really pleased with how well they work.

“Expensive but works on ready-to-pop pimples!” commented one shopper. “If I can buy stock on this, I would. It’s that good. No one paid me to say this, but I’m halfway thru my 2nd large pack now after trying the 24 dots pack.”

“It actually works,” another shopper wrote. “[I] used my first one last night when I went to bed, and removed it this morning. I had a huge spot above my lip which had three heads! [I] was finding it hard to pop and [it] was so sore.
I am amazed.”

Lots of shoppers say they keep these blemish patches in their bag or purse in case pimples pop up when they’re out and about. If you’re prone to breakouts, grab a pack to keep in your makeup bag.
