TRIED & TESTED: Alvira – Skin Essentials Anti-Spot Patches

Action Alvira Skin Essentials Anti-spot Patches | Beauty Review | himartine.com

Beautygloss’s Mascha recently released a video showing that blister patches can help you get rid of pimples. Nothing new under the sun there, but a lot of people – including me – had never heard of this trick. And while everyone was cutting up expensive blister patches, these affordable little anti-spot patches by Alvira were waiting for us at Action.

The product

The reason why blister bandages will quickly and safely deflate annoying pimples, is because they are hydrocolloid patches. In the presence of water, it forms a gel that is used to treat wounds – like blisters, but spots, too.

These by Alvira (by Action) come in a two sizes – depending on how large your spots are. They are said to be efficient, hygienic and unobtrusive. But are they effective?

The review

I like that you don’t need to cut up blister patches for this to work. These come in convenient sizes and they are wrapped hygienically – until you open the packaging, because then they’re exposed to air and they will dry out eventually.

Nevertheless, I’ve tried these on a few pimples and they do seem to work a little. Unfortunately (well, sort of) I don’t have those big pimples that are easy to pop, because these would work wonders on those. I’ve seen pictures (sorry) where they’ve just sucked everything out – so you don’t need to use your dirty fingernails and damage your skin.

For the tinier spots I have, however, these have minimal effect. They help a little but don’t get rid of them completely. I went a little hype-crazy and bought three packs of these, but I probably won’t end up using them all.

The price

Alvira Anti-Spot Patches are available at Action for € 0,89.
