The patch itself is made out of hydrocolloid that easily adheres to clean skin. And its tiny points don't just sit on top of your face — they penetrate your skin (à la microneedling) and then dissolve after two hours; although Hero Cosmetics recommends using the patch overnight
I’m lucky enough to seldomly experience a breakout (thank you, retinol) but when I do, the first thing I grab is an acne patch to handle the job. These new micopoint patches by Hero Cosmetics contain 173 hyaluronic microneedles to penetrate the blemish and treat it with acne-fighting ingredients, like salicylic acid.
These brand-new ones from Hero Cosmetics use proprietary pyramid-shaped microneedles that better penetrate the skin—don't worry: It sounds much more intimidating than it feels. Not only is the shape unique, but there are 173 per patch that are infused with salicylic acid, beta glucan soothes, and hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated.
Each patch features 173 microneedles designed with ultra-fine points that won’t hurt sensitive areas of the skin. Three active ingredients including salicylic acid, beta glucan and hyaluronic acid stunt blemishes by exfoliating, soothing and moisturizing while bringing excess oil to the surface of the skin.
"I did a bout of pretty bad acne about a year ago. So I was using pimple patches like crazy. Luckily they are so big right now that you can find really great ones. Ones that I tend to go for a lot is Mighty Patch. Mighty Patch is a hydrocolloid patch that you stick on your pimple!"
"I do not claim to understand the science behind this tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my workday looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were Shocking. 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."
