The Face Shop Acne Patch Kit from their Dr.Belmeur Range is my first ever acne patch. Ever since Cosrx and The Face Shop came up with these pimple patch or spot patches, market got flooded with pimple patches. Now there are even fancy ones with cartoon characters on them.
I remember myself talking to back in college days when my skin was all loaded with pimples and I had to travel here and there facing all the dust and pollution that isn’t there something like a patch which I can apply on a pimple and it will just protect it from the dust meanwhile working on it? And here we are, years later with pimple patches easily available to the rescue.
I am so glad that I picked up The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Acne Patch Kit and not some random one from Amazon because I really wanted to have the best experience for my first time. If you have been looking for The Face Shop Acne Patch Review, you are on the right page. Let us get started.

Review – The Face Shop Acne Patch Kit by Dr.Belmeur
My Skin Type: Combination to Oily in Summers, Dry in Winters, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin
Packaging: It comes in a zip-lock pouch with 3 strips inside. 2 Strips of Hydrocolloid Band and 1 strip of Spot Plaster Band. Each Individual strip has 20 to 40 patches making a total of 80 patches.
Since it is a complete kit having two types of patches in it, I was super confused about which one to use overnight and which one to use the next day. I reached to a friend for help who already used this and she mentioned that Hydrocolloid is to be used overnight and a spot plaster band is to be used the next day to soothe the wound.
Spot Hydrocolloid Band
As mentioned in the instructions, I applied one patch right after I washed my face before any skincare product, precisely over the pimple. Hydrocolloid Bands comes in 2 sizes covering both small and medium sized pimples.
I noticed the acne patch is slightly thick and has a silicone look to it. Right after I applied it on my face, it sort of vanished. I asked my Mom if she can spot where the patch is she literally couldn’t. The band is noticeable from real up close and personal.
Another thing that impressed me right away was that the hydrocolloid band makes the pimple look less red and big. I remember using the acne patch on a big red pimple for the first time and the patch almost hid it. Cool, right?

I applied the patch on the pimple followed by my regular toner and moisturizer and left it overnight. The next morning, the moment I took off the patch I was shook. The size of the pimple was 80% reduced.
But results weren’t this same all the time. Depending on the pimple, there were different results every time.
I remember there was this pimple on my forehead with pus in it. I applied The Face Shop acne patch and the next morning, the pimple was slightly bigger with pus on top. For a second, I was like why it isn’t reduced and why the patch didn’t pull the pus out of the pimple but when I washed my face, the pus was gone. The acne patch worked differently this time but, worked!

Sometimes it reduced the size, sometimes it reduced the redness, and sometimes it pulled the pus to top level. Different results, but always effective.
The most important was to remember that this Dr.Belmeur Acne Patch needs to be applied before any skincare product. Most of the time, I jumped right onto my toner and then it clicked my mind that oops! I forgot the patch.
The best part about The Face Shop Acne Patch is they work on the pimple while protecting it from outside dust and make the pimple look a lot less big and red. Acne patches are my new favorite thing now.
Spot Plaster Band
This one is to be used the next day on the same pimple which was treated by the Hydrocolloid band last night. This one’s role is to soothe the wound while protecting it from getting in contact with dust and pollution.
Spot plaster band is super thin and the moment I applied it to my skin, it was disappeared. Unlike hydrocolloid band, this doesn’t hide the wound but only acts as a soothing cover.
I applied the spot plaster band right after my face wash followed by my skincare routine and left it on my face for the whole day. I removed the patch in the evening and there was simply traces of oil on it. With the whole process of Hydrocolloid Band and Spot Plaster band, I feel that whenever I get a pimple, it is treated at a much faster rate.
I always make sure to follow up with Minimalist Alpha Arbutin Serum as that is a gem when it comes to fade away acne and pimple marks.
In case you are wondering, I got no allergy or infection while using The Face Shop Acne Patch Kit. It went super effective for my skin.
The Face Shop Acne Patch Kit by Dr.Belmeur works like magic in treating pimples overnight. The hydrocolloid band hides the redness, made the pimple look less big, and reduced the inflation overnight. Depending on the pimple, it also reduces the redness and pulls the pus on top the next morning. The spot plaster band on the other hand worked as a soothing cover to calm the wound the next day and protect it from dust and pollution.
- Super effective
- Reduces inflation and redness overnight
- Hides the redness and makes it less big
- Different results but always effective
- No Reaction
