I love that there is a dedicated container for these patches, so I know where to look for when I’m in need of it! Star face patches have definitely changed my mind about making acne fun and it’s ok to show your acne! I hated so much how the regular patches didn’t really conceal, if anything, made it more obvious - so why not just have cute stars and hello kitty instead? I do however think that it is not as effective as other brands, therefore will only use these patches on smaller pimples that need covering.

Larger sizes? Haha

These are cute but imo not as effective as CosRx or Hero.

Got both their star patches and their face wash. It is very hard to beat their amazing price point, cute packaging, clean ingredients mixed with quality products. I like their face-wash as a good daily cleanser for acne prone skin that isn't too harsh or drying. I will definitely be repurchasing! Also, I get complimented every single time I wear a star patch bc people find them so so cute... which one can argue does kinda help cure acne? because your stress surrounding the acne significantly decreases? All jokes aside I find the patches to work in a way that is unlike most spot products. Instead of drying out the pimple with salicylic acid, clay or other acids it is essentially acting like a bandaid so it sort of heals it and helps protect it from any bacteria your face would come into contact with and therefore making the pimple worse... if that makes sense. All in all love and the packaging for the star patches is insanely cute :)

The packaging is the CUTEST! It makes pimples as fun as they could be. The stars themselves got the job done. I wouldn’t walk outside though with it on my face. This is unlike some competitors that are clear and blend in better.

Feedback

All the stars are one size, so it makes it hard to adjust to pimples that are the size of Mt. Everest.

Great packaging! The small box makes keeping the patches dry and organized super easy. The bright colors of the stars make them obvious in the morning, so you take them off before zoom meetings!

Feedback

Personally, I wish the patches were a little larger to fully cover my acne spots.

I think the packaging is so so cute. The patches seem to work pretty well too - my pimples improve after wearing them overnight and stay on great.

Feedback

Because they're so fun and bright, I feel like I only really wear them at night and then take them off in the morning when I have to work - when really they could last much longer than that.

5/5 Pimple patches: love these. Adorable and seem to be really effective in reducing my pimples (or at least making them easier to pop lol). I have zero self-consciousness about wearing them out in public bc I mean, who wouldn't want to be sporting stars on their face? 4/5 Moisturizer: The moisturizer was fine, nothing fancy. It is unscented and quite lightweight. I do wish that the packaging was different though. I do my best to use up as much product as possible (to alleviate my own conscience), but the pump design meant that the top could not be unscrewed and I had to discard it with the painful knowledge that there was probably several days' worth of moisturizer still left inside 3.5/5 Face wash: It was a little too foamy for me, and felt like it was stripping my skin of moisture. I prefer a more gentle face wash that doesn't lather as much

They are really cute and come in an adorable container. However, because of the shape, they are hard to apply and don't really do much for my acne.

Has no effect 🤷

These are great. Work as advertised, don't have those spiky things that other patches do that poke you.
