Acne breakouts can come at the worst possible times, like the night before a hot date, a job interview or a trip with your friends. Thankfully, ever since we discovered COSRX acne patches, we haven't had to worry about it as much. They've been a true lifesaver when we needed a quick solution, which is why our lids flipped when we found out that the cult-favorite skincare brand was giving their original ones an upgrade.

Not only does the 2.0 version of the Master Pimple Patches have a new oval shape featuring an ultra-thin tapered edge that blends into most skin tones, but you can also now stick them on curved surfaces (like the jawline and hairline). The hydrocolloid, active salicylic acid and tea tree oil-based patches were designed to help reduce inflammation and heal your zits quicker (like sometimes even overnight). How does it work? Well, this is going to sound gross, but when you stick one of these patches on your blemish, it literally absorbs the gunk out of it, speeding up healing time.

But don't take our word for it. There's a reason why the product has gained cult-favorite status so quickly. Here's what one buyer had to say about them: "These have become my go-to! They’re a rare combination: thin hydrocolloid with salicylic acid and tea tree embedded in them. They’re excellent at getting the goo out of my pimples overnight or stopping me from picking at my pimples during the day. They’re thin and subtle enough for my skin tone that I can get away with wearing them on zoom, and nobody can tell!"

That's all we needed to hear. *Adds to cart*
