    Key ingredients that make it work

    Salicylic acid

    This multifunctional ingredient addresses many of the systemic causes of acne. For decades dermatologists have been prescribing salicylic acid as a gentle exfoliant and anti-inflammatory. Salicylic acid’s antimicrobial properties make it extremely effective at treating breakouts. It has the ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of skin, which makes it effective for reducing breakouts, including blackheads and whiteheads. It is also well documented salicylic acid can improve skin thickness, barrier function, and collagen production.

    Tea tree

    Studies have shown that tea tree oil is just as effective as benzoly peroxide, to reduce acne. It is a natural alternative for curing acne, without negative side effects like reddening and peeling of skin. It also reduces sebum production by the skin and eliminates. Tea tree oil is an excellent skin treatment especially for oily and acne prone skin. Tea tree also has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and is an antioxidant.

    It works - trust me.

    These little patches are fabulous! Pop one on when you notice a pimple or blemish forming, and by the morning the inflammation and redness will be noticeably reduced.
    The ingredients really do work to clear your blemish, and the patch itself acts as a great barrier to protect your skin from daily dirt and pollution while it is healing (Love that I can wear these underneath my face mask at work).

    Just a note: These patches will stay stuck for a good length of time, but you cannot moisturise the area you want the patch to stick to beforehand. They may also start to peel off if you have very oily skin - so just carry a spare one with you if you intend to wear the patch throughout the day.

    Thanks Tamryn. We're glad to hear these are working for you.

    A patch that packs a punch!

    This spot treatment has been a lifesaver! I suffer with blind pimples and it really reduces redness and inflammation overnight however, with the actual blind pimple it does take a little longer and more applications once it is completely gone. It also works very well on normal pimples and does not dry out your skin at all.
    I do wish that there were better usage and storage instructions though - like how often you can use it, whether or not you can use it in the sun and the correct way to store an open pack of patches.
    Ultimately, I am very pleased with this purchase and will definitely be getting more once mine are finished.

    Talk about a winner

    I have been having really bad fungal acne 'Malassezia folliculitis' and i have been looking for products that are high in Salicylic acid which is know to effectively treating breakouts, and its ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of skin. This mask is a winner in my books, I used this mask in the evening after cleansing my face and the next morning my face was so much better the inflammation had gone down and my face is glowing and bronzed. It is absolutely amazing. I give it a 5/5.
