So I normally use Renee Rouleau Anti-Cyst liquid treatment for blemishes. I recently got a one sheet sample of these Skyn Iceland Blemish Dots in a gift bag. I loved them so much I bought a whole box from Ulta, which is now gone.
Per Ulta: “Clear the way for perfect skin, one blemish at a time. Skyn Iceland Blemish Dots flood skin with a continuous flow of advanced blemish-fighting ingredients for fast and effective breakout relief within hours. Formulated to rapidly shrink blemishes and soothe irritation, while absorbing excess oil and curbing the spread of acne-causing bacteria, these innovative see-through stickers are packed with a potent blend of natural antibacterials, (including salicylic acid and tea tree oil), calming anti-inflammatories, and detoxifying actives.
An entirely new type of spot-treatment, each single-use patch adheres to skin-and stays-put-to deliver continuous pore-purifying benefits. Ideal for overnight use, wear one, or more, patches to bed, and wake up to clear skin in the morning. Peel patch off sheet and apply gel side down to an active blemish, or any spot where you feel a blemish developing. Push gently until it adheres to skin and leave on for several hours or overnight for best results. Remove patch when done and dispose.”
I LOVE these. So easy. Just stick on before bed and remove in the morning. I experienced no irritation, dryness or redness from using overnight. I found it best to apply the dots after my night moisturizer has sunk in for about five minutes. You can still have a moist feel to your skin and they’ll stick, but they slide a bit if you apply immediately after moisturizing.
So these do work. It will not get rid of your blemish in one night. I used these on more superficial blemishes as well as those deep painful cysts. Put one of these on the same night you feel a deep cyst coming on. You may need to wear a patch for 3-4 nights in a row to get past the window of developing a cyst. If you consistently use this I found I developed no deep cysts, which meant no blemishes.
I love the ease of these. They’re a little pricey considering you may use more than one a night for 3-4 days. You need to be consistent and patient for these to work. One night won’t do it for a deep cyst. One night will shrink a surface blemish. If you are patient, use them for more than one night you can keep a deep painful cyst from developing with ease. At a cost. I’m currently trying the Peter Thomas Roth ones to see if they’re about the same. Review coming one day on that one too. These went in my Hero Product List.
