Excellent semi-private treatment for face pickers, May 28, 2013

This review is from: Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover, Two Sizes, 36 Count (Misc.)
I am a horrible face-toucher who unconsciously picks at bumps, and that’s really bad for a 40+ y.o. adult with break-outs on fair skin that doesn’t heal as quickly as it used to. I won’t go on about my attempts to PREVENT pimples and will instead focus this review on my attempts to HEAL them.I’ve tried EVERYTHING: steroid tape, band-aids, tegaderm…hydrocolloid dressing works best for my sensitive skin. My favorite is the Compeed cold sore patches (yes, I use them for zits, not cold sores – 5 stars anyway) but that became cost-prohibitive. I bought some large hydrocolloid wound patches which I could trim as needed to fit over my bumps, and that works for as a night time cover (even the “extra thin” dressing is still to bulkly for public wear – plus it’s beige and I have fair skin). But I still wanted something I could hopefully wear on my face during the day…I purchased these hoping they were a little lighter, less bulky, and therefore suitable for wearing in public. Alas, while they were lighter and thinner, they’re still too dark and noticeable against my skin and thus inappropriate (IMO) for work. However, being that I’d rather get second glances from strangers than get pock-marked, I wear them out and about and just deal. I personally can NOT wear them with make-up b/c that makes them come off (and they don’t stick all that well in the first place). But otherwise, they work as intended: suck out the bad stuff, reduce redness, provide coverage and protection against picking, and speed the healing process. I will continue to buy and use them as they’re more budget-friendly than Compeed, and save the Compeed for urgent needs.

(BTW, I also treat zits – once past the eruption stage – with Carmex. I have found that it works wonders for “older” skin…it has salicylic acid and hydrating ingredients that are perfect for my skin type.)

I am not prone to much acne, but do tend to get this one problematic pimple once a month, somewhere in the vicinity of my chin. It is always large, painful, lasts several days, and (sorry if this is too gross) has two or three whiteheads. I have very fair skin and can’t squeeze or pick without scarring. I usually treat this regular breakout with careful cleansing and a topical acne medication. With the Nexcare pads, I was curious to see if the life of this pimple could be shortened. As soon as it began to rear its ugly head, I applied a Nexcare cover overnight. The first two nights, the cover seemed to have no effect. It did not diminish the pimple, turn white to indicate it had absorbed any oil or (shudder) pus, or otherwise seem to treat the pimple at all. I could not wear the cover 24 hours a day due to having to leave the house (I don’t see how the cover can be hidden by makeup unless you really cake it on), but last night gave the cover one more try. At this point, the pimple was definitely turning into a couple of whiteheads and, finally, the cover did what it was supposed to do. When I woke up this morning, the cover had turned white, absorbed a lot of nastiness, and the swelling was down without any damaging squeezing or picking.So, in the future I will save these covers to use on a breakout that has progressed to the whitehead stage but not waste them before that point.

This product has been so popular in Asia. It’s awesome and it finally hit the US market! I no longer have to had others transport them for me from Asia.To maximize its effect, you must wait until the pimple to “mature” with a white head. Otherwise, it’s useless. The reason for the white head is that the liquid inside the bump is mostly ready to come out. When you stick the Nexcare “sticker” onto the white head, it would start to do its magic, which is sucking out the white stuff from the pimple. Give it about a day or even a night, you’ll see the result. It’s pretty amazing. It is also pretty invisible. When my brother has one on his face, I could barely notice it.These are much thicker and bigger than the ones sold in Asia. I would cut it into half for my smaller acne. It sticks well. It covers well. When I remove it after a night of sleeping with it on, I would be able to clean out the stuff by squeezing it with two q-tips. Then, voila, the gigantic bump would be gone.
