"We stand together with the Black community in the fight against systemic racism," reads an Instagram caption from acne brand Hero Cosmetics. "A future of equality can only be created by those who take action." Which is why all the proceeds of Hero Cosmetics' new Micropoint for Dark Spots will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund during the week of June 1.
When I feel a big hormonal cyst coming on, the Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Original ($13) is the option I turn to. The vegan and cruelty-free patches are made from clean products, but they do wonders. I have used these on my most painful and deepest pimples. I find that not only do they go away much faster but they help reduce a dark spot that's often left behind.
I just started using these new Hero Cosmetics Micropoint for Dark Spots ($13) and after one use, I saw a dramatic change in a few of my blemishes marks. I tried one on my face and one on my chest, and they look so much lighter. These patches are total game-changers
On June 1, Hero Cosmetics launched its Micropoint for Dark Spots acne patch that tackles hyperpigmentation. In light of recent events, the brand announced that, for the entire first week of sales, it'll be donating 100 percent of its proceeds from the new launch to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund charity, up to $10,000.
Unlike a lot of other acne patches, these specifically target scars, using tranexamic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin C to reduce the appearance of dark spots. Each sticker contains 170 microneedles so the aforementioned ingredients can penetrate deep into the skin for fast results.
