If you're into skincare, you've probably already heard about hydrocolloid, the incredible material that works wonders in sucking up blemish gunk. Hydrocolloid is super effective in absorbing liquids, and it's no wonder why it's a favourite in the British skincare community. Recently, hydrocolloid got an upgrade in the form of the SkinChoice Breakout Patch Classic Nose, which has become a favourite among skincare enthusiasts.
This oversized pore strip is made of hydrocolloid, making it different from your regular pore strip. The Classic Nose Patch can not only remove debris and dirt from your pores but also reduce the appearance of pimples and absorb excess oil. It's a genius invention, and I was thrilled to try it out.
My first experience with the patch was impressive, as I noticed an instant reduction in nose shine. However, I was also a little grossed out by how much gunk the patch absorbed after the recommended six hours of wear. (Note: The patch gradually turns white as it absorbs liquid and cleanses the pores).
But I'm not the only one impressed with this product. Amazon shoppers have been raving about it, with one saying, " It works so well to get pores and excess bacteria off the skin. It works overnight and does miracles. " Another shopper said, " I’ve had blackhead issues for a while now, I used this patch for the first time and overnight I can already see the difference."
Unlike regular pore strips, the SkinChoice Classic Nose Patch doesn't leave any sticky residue on your nose, and it's easy to remove. It's a game-changer for people like me who struggle with oily skin.
Hydrocolloid patches have been around for a while, and they were initially used in the medical world for wound healing. However, they've now become a trendy option for cleaning out pores without the potential damage caused by pore strips. Dermatologists have also been praising this new development, with one explaining in a TikTok video that "Using a hydrocolloid patch as a nose strip is actually much more gentle than a nose strip, which I like."
Overall, the SkinChoice Breakout Patch Classic Nose is a must-try for any skincare enthusiast looking to clean out their pores and reduce nose shine. It's gentle yet effective, making it a great addition to any skincare routine.
