Here Are Our Favorite Pimple Patches to Zap Zits Overnight

We're sure we're not the only ones who can be very susceptible to the urge to pop our pimples.

The satisfaction that comes from doing it is almost greater than the annoyance of dealing with redness afterward—emphasis on the "almost." But as we start learning more about skincare and what works best for our faces, time and time again, pimple patches have proven themselves to be the ultimate solution. There are a ton of pimple patches on the market, but lucky for you, we've compiled our favorite brands that work wonders.

Star Face

Truth be told, we may or may not wear Star Face patches even when we're not breaking out. These adorable sticker-like patches have a special place in our hearts, protecting zits from outside bacteria while sucking out the fluid—like tiny, adorable pimple patch vampires. Five stars for Star Face!

COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch

You may have heard of this brand because of its "secret" ingredient, snail mucin. This was the first pimple patch brand we ever used, jump-starting our addiction to them. Cosrx also uses vegan and clean ingredients to target blemishes from the root. They're one of the only companies we'd trust to put snail juice on our faces, and that has to mean something.
