By now you should have noticed how many good sales are happening during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but let’s keep in mind that the sales don’t last forever. There are discounts from brands like Olaplex and NuFace and discounts across different retailers like Sephora and Amazon. But the one thing that we constantly find ourselves needing a restock on are acne patches.
The reasons we love these convenient treatments are because acne stickers won’t leave your skin dry and flaky. Debra Jaliman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and assistant professor of dermatology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City previously told Allure that most are small, circular hydrocolloid bandages, meaning they absorb fluid from the pimple.
Lucky for us, some of our favorite pimple patches are on sale during Black Friday. The selection includes stickers with some cute designs, so you can treat that pesky blemish in style. But, if that’s not your vibe, don’t worry, there’s a good amount of invisible ones too that are ideal for daytime wear, so you can treat your breakouts whenever you please.
With all this in mind, we rounded up some of our favorite, tried-and-true acne patches that are discounted right now.
Let’s start off with something cute, like the Winky Lux Catne Pimple Patches. These shrink blemishes within hours by absorbing all that gunk and oil. Once you’re done with these, your skin will be looking purrrfectly smooth and clear.
The Cosrx Acne Pimple Patches come in a pack of 96 patches (that’s a lot of pimples to flatten) in three different sizes. This K-beauty favorite has become one of the most popular acne patch picks, and its acclaim is rightly deserved. The hydrocolloid circles cling to the skin, no matter where you end up wearing them. And, for those tricky chin-area breakouts, there’s the oval-shaped Master Patch Intensive ($11 down from $14) for a more secure grip.
The I Dew Care Hydrocolloid Acne Pimple Patch Trio features three different sizes of patches, resulting in a total of 96 per pack. First up are 36 small, clear-colored dots, 36 medium, paw-print dots (cute!), and then 24 larger, clear dots. Regardless of the size you choose, inflammation and redness will go down after just six hours of wearing these.
