Acne Patch Comparison

I think acne patch is one of the greatest inventions in the beauty industry. It makes the healing of acne so much faster and more importantly so much more hygienic. But as more and more brands are coming out with their own acne patches, it becomes a little confusing to choose. Below is a table of comparison for the 6 types of acne patches tried and tested at The Sesame Shop.

CosrxAcne Pimple Master Patch Thick ✦✦✦✦✦✦✦24 circular patches (10* 7mm + 5* 10mm + 9*2mm)$4.99 ($0.21 per patch)This is the most popular acne patch. It works very well for wound healing. Down side is the smallest size (7mm) barely covers the smallest sized pimple, therfore not very useful. Also the colour is off-white, therefore appears quite obvious on the skin. Best to be used overnight.
CosrxClear Fit Master PatchCosrx Clear Fit Master PatchThin rim with thicker centre, glossy✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✧18 circular patches (18* 10mm)$4.99 ($0.27 per patch)This is the most common type of pimple patch in the market, used by many brands. Its thinner texture makes it sticks to the skin very well and appears less visible on the skin, therefore you can wear it during the day.
CosrxAC Collection Acne PatchCosrx AC Collection Acne PatchThin rim with thicker centre, matte✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✧26 elliptical patches (8* 15mm x 23mm + 9* 11mm x 16mm + 9* 9mm x 13mm)$7.50 ($0.28 per patch)This is the latest release from Cosrx. The main advantage is the bigger size, so if you have multiple pimples very close together, you may find the large size more useful. The effectivenss is comparable to the Clear Fit Master Patch.
Some By MiClear Spot PatchSome By Mi Clear Spot PatchThin rim with thicker centre, matte✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✧18 circular patches (9* 10mm + 9* 12mm)$6.00 ($0.30 per patch) This patch is almost invisible on the skin due to its thin and matte texture. The 12mm size is very convenient for slightly larger pimples. The effectivenss is comparable to the Clear Fit Master Patch.
A’pieuNonco Tea Tree Spot Patcha'pieu-nonco-tea-tree-spot-patch-1pThin✦✦✦✦✦✧120 circular patches (10* 12* 12mm)$12 ($0.10 per patch)This patch is significantly cheaper than the Cosrx and Some By Mi ones. It’s good if you just want to isolate the pimple.
Real BarrierControl-T Spot Clear PatchReal Barrier Control T Spot Clear Patch BoxThin✦✦✦✦✦✦128 circular patches (4* (20* 9mm + 12* 12mm))$9.50 ($0.07 per patch)This patch is the cheapest amongst all. It works slightly better than the A’pieu one, providing isolation and some effects to acne healing. This patch is only effective on squeezed pimples.

*The Sesame Shop price

Overall, it’s true that you get what you pay for. The first 4 types of acne patches are more or less the same and they’re around the same price. The last 2 types are a little less effective, but they’re dirt cheap, therefore are worth having around when you have pimples that are not as difficult to deal with.
