Ever since we first tested out acne patches, we’ve had these fast fixes on perpetual standby. Ideally used on pimples that have come to a “head,” hydrocolloid stickers draw out all the gunk from inside to leave you with a smooth and clear surface. Beyond that, they also help discourage any pimple picking while protecting the affected area from stressors. Also, cool bonus: the really good ones even wear well under makeup!

These days, pimple patches come in all shapes and sizes from a ton of brands who know good skincare. So, which ones are actually worth your pretty penny? Here are 8 of our top picks for your zit-zapping needs!

8 ACNE PATCHES THAT TARGET AND TREAT YOUR PIMPLES


1. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 Patches), P200
Without a doubt, this COSRX staple is the most recognizable sheet in this roundup. It was our very first brush with pimple patches and it’s remained a reliable favorite for us and our customers ever since. With 2,000+ 5-star reviews on its product page, we’d say it’s as beloved as it is ideal for skincare beginners.

2. COSRX Clear Fit Master Patch (Black), P200
An upgrade on the O.G., these patches are much thinner, come in a single size, and offer 18 pieces in a sheet. It works just the same, except it’s virtually undetectable on your skin once applied. A great option for people who want to wear it out (under makeup or on its own!) without drawing attention to their breakout.

3. COSRX AC Collection Acne Patch, now on sale at P272 (limited time only)
As part of COSRX’s latest collection of acne-busters, these patches are the K-beauty brand’s most advanced offering yet. They’re oval-shaped instead of circular to stick better to skin, they come in 3 sizes, and they may even be used to treat individual pimples that are too close together.

4. Skin Genie Pimple and Acne Pad (36 Pcs.), P270 (limited time only)
Homegrown hero Skin Genie may be best known for their P99 lip tints and pit perfectors, but their version of pimple patches deserves hype, too. At just P300 for a set of 36, it’s one of the most affordable picks on this list without sacrificing quality.

5. Happy Skin Beauty Invisible Pimple Patch, P175
Another up-and-comer from a local favorite, Happy Skin’s take features Centella Asiatica (a.k.a. Cica) as a key ingredient. The super healer is popularly used in acne solutions, as it calms irritation and minimizes scarring while banishing your blemishes. In patch form, it becomes even easier to reap its benefits!

6. Pyunkang Yul Acne Spot Patch Super Thin (15 Sachets), P220
Pyunkang Yul’s anti-acne selection may not be as popular as their moisture barrier boosters, but it’s certainly as effective. These patches are as highly concentrated as any of their skin-plumping serums, vanishing pimples quick without drying you out.

7. Some By Mi 30 Days Miracle Clear Spot Patch, now on sale at P180 (limited time only)
As part of Some by Mi’s miracle line, these patches carry the promise of clear skin in an instant. And like everything else from that collection, you can trust these to take care of your acne troubles gently and without fuss.

8. G9Skin AC Solution Acne Clear Spot Patch (60 Pieces), now on sale at P845 (limited time only)
If you’re in the market to bulk buy patches, go for this 60-piece option from G9skin. Having a box of these on hand in case of emergencies will surely prove useful, and you won’t have to worry about running out for a long time!
