Pimple patches have completely changed our lives. Where were they when we were younger and destroying our skin with toothpaste and lemon juice night after night? We certainly could’ve used them every time we popped a pimple in the past too — which has been many, many times.
Pimple patches are great for keeping acne from getting infected and for helping breakouts and blemishes shrink and become less red and irritated overnight. Some are even so clear, you might even wear them throughout the day too! We’ve tried a ton, so below we’re showcasing our five faves:
Peace Out Acne Dots
These dots use hydrocolloid polymer technology but also add in salicylic acid to serious target breakouts while guarding them against external elements. They even contain retinol and aloe vera!

Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots
Over 55 million of these K-beauty pimple patches have been sold, and we know we’ve recommended them to many friends. Active, inflamed blemishes? Third party consumer study results found 97% saw active blemishes flattened within two days!
