If you’ve read my review on the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches, you’ll know that I love them. When I heard that they came out with a new pimple patch that is thinner and could allegedly go underneath makeup, I wanted to try it. I found a Canadian website called Chuusi.ca that sold them (see my haul). They retail for $4.50 CAD, but unfortunately you can only buy one package at a time (on Chuusi). I guess they don’t want to be out of stock since it’s a new product and lots of people want to try it.
Clear Fit Master Patch | $4.50
An ultra-thin hydrocolloid patch that conceals blemishes and absorbs impurities and oil. These patches are thinner and less visible than the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches, making them perfect for use under makeup and during the daytime.
How to Use: After cleansing, dry the area around the acne, pimple, or blemish and apply patch to completely cover the spot. The patch goes on clear. When the patch becomes white, remove the patch and cleanse the area before applying a new patch.
In a package for the Acne Pimple Master Patches, you get 24 (10 small, 5 medium, 9 large). I tend to use the medium ones the most. The Clear Fit Master Patches come in a package of 18 and they are all the same size (about the same size as the medium master patches).
I mostly bought the Clear Fit patches because I wanted to see how well they were disguised under makeup. If you want to know how well the patches work, go to my review on the Acne Pimple Master Patches. The clear fit patches are thinner and not as noticeable, but they don’t absorb as much as the Acne Pimple Master Patches. The Acne Pimple Master Patches are the same thickness for the whole patch and they also stick better. The Clear Fit ones are thin and then thicker in the centre.
I tried one under makeup and it just emphasized the patch more. I tried several different ways to conceal the patch: a cream concealer from the Coastal Scents Eclipse Palette (read my review), Maybelline Fit Me concealer and a powder foundation. I tried using a brush, my finger and a sponge. I thought the sponge would work the best because you dab at it instead of moving concealer around the patch, but it didn’t make much of a difference. For the powder foundation, it didn’t do anything, it just made the patch look cloudy.
JENCAT’S RATING: 4.5/5
I was disappointed that the clear fit patches don’t work under makeup. Unless you plan to wear pimple patches out of the house, I think the Acne Pimple Master Patches are better than the Clear Fit ones because they absorb more and you get more in each package (although the small patches can be a bit useless).
Have you tried acne patches?
