We're willing to bet that pimple patches are a staple in your skin-care routine — as they are for practically every Allure staffer — and that you're no stranger to one of Cosrx's bestsellers: the iconic Master Patch. But if you've ever found the yellow tint too noticeable for daytime wear or the shape unsuitable for uneven surfaces, we have great news for you. Meet the Cosrx Master Patch Intensive, an upgraded version of the hydrocolloid patches that form a protective, air-tight, healing seal around your blemishes and save you from picking or popping away. (Please, don't.) The best part: They're on sale for one day only — Tuesday, January 26.
Although $14 for a set of 36 patches is relatively affordable as is, Cosrx is one-upping itself with this special discount. The first 1,000 people to buy the Master Patch Intensive on amazon.com will score 43 percent off, meaning you could end up paying a mere $8 for your new acne-fighting friends. As this is a lightning deal, be sure to set an alarm for 1:30 p.m ET when the discount goes live. From there you have just five hours to claim your pack — or even less if others act fast — so don't delay.
Cosrx Master Patch Intensive
Need further convincing? Well, the new, oval-shaped design comes in small and medium sizes and has tapered edges that hug the contours of your face, like your jawline and hairline — so they don't fall off in the way round patches might.
Another highlight is — unlike the original Master Patch — the Intensive version is infused with tea tree oil to soothe any redness and irritation associated with your breakout. "Tea tree oil has been used as a natural treatment for pimples because it has antimicrobial properties, lowering the levels of acne-causing bacteria on the skin," Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, previously told Allure.
Nighttime may be the most convenient time to slap on an acne patch (they need around six hours to absorb all of the gunk out of your whiteheads), but the Master Patch Intensive is noticeably thinner and more transparent than its predecessor — so daytime wear is not an issue at all. And if you have a less-than-sharp laptop camera like me, they'll be undetectable on Zoom calls. (I snapped a photo with my equally-fuzzy iPhone camera below. See if you can spot the two patches I'm wearing.)
Ready to shop? You better not delay, because like we said, the $8 deal is only available to the first 1,000 people who check out with a 36-pack of Cosrx Master Patch Intensive in tow. Shop, drop, and treat those pesky pimples.
