There is a reason why pimple patches are a trend these days. They are easy to use, they give you the quick fix you need and most importantly, they work. Below, a Soko Glam team member takes us on a journey of how she discovered pimple patches and why The Klog Soft Shield Pimple Patch is her new go-to staple.
I first discovered pimple patches around three years ago through Soko Glam. It was such a fun concept to have an on-the-go, no mess acne treatment product. Since then, I have always had a healthy stash of pimple patches on hand and have never looked back.
The first pimple patch I tried was the Missha Speedy Solution Anti Trouble Patch, and I remember being so impressed by how invisible it was on the skin. I was instantly comfortable wearing those pimple patches anywhere because no one could see it, and it helped to protect my pimples and prevent me from picking at them. After about six months, I transitioned to the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch, because I wasn’t seeing results from the Missha ones. It was satisfying to see that the patch had absorbed all the gunk from my whiteheads, but the downside was that they were a lot thicker and more noticeable.
I recently started using the Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Micropoint for Blemishes, which has hyaluronic acid microneedles that target treatment into the pimple’s core. I love using these for acne that are deeper bumps under the skin’s surface. However, each patch is over $2, so it pains me (and my wallet) every time I need to use one.
Over the years, I’ve become so used to wearing pimple patches. They are a normal part of my skin care routine and a no-brainer when a pimple starts to appear. When I first heard about The Klog Soft Shield Pimple Patches, I knew they would be something I wanted to try out. It seemed to be the perfect combination of all the pimple patches I use – efficacious, invisible, and affordable.
The Klog Soft Shield Pimple Patch absorbs impurities under the skin, in a safe and fast way. I love that this patch has beveled edges that fit in curved areas of my face, like my nose and chin, where I tend to have a lot of acne pop up. I’ve been testing the patches for about a week, using them daily and changing out about every 8 hours and have been impressed with the results from the patches so far.
The pimple patches come in two sizes: 10mm and 14mm. I found that the smaller size works well on my nose and around my eyebrows, while the larger size works well on my cheeks, jawline and forehead. After one use, I was able to see impurities brought to the surface, and most of my whiteheads and inflamed areas smoothed out rapidly. With 42 patches in one pack, I am not afraid to use multiple pimple patches at a time – so far the most I’ve had on at once is 8! As a small tip, I would recommend not putting the pimple patches on very dry skin, as I found that it felt like I was tugging too hard on my skin upon removal.
I think we can all agree that this year has been a wild ride, and we can use all the wins we can get. The Soft Shield Pimple Patch is the perfect way to banish your acne and get a quick win.
