We all know the pain of waking up in the morning and feeling a new spot on our face. To make matters worse, it’s usually on a day when you want to get one the least.
So, would you be interested in trying out a product that claims to shrink the size of even a cystic spot in a matter of hours? Almost definitely.
The ZitSticka Killa Kit, £27, has just launched in the UK and looks a bit like the Glossier of the spot world. The chic kit houses eight patches and eight soaked cleansing swabs, which is enough to see you through a fair few break-outs.
What makes these patches different from other ones on the market is they have a microdart technology, which means the surface of the patch is covered in tiny hair-thin darts that puncture the epicentre of your spot.
After wiping the affected area with the targeted cleansing wipes (containing zit-zapping salicylic acid and tea tree oil), you apply the patch onto clean skin. The microdarts on the patch then self-dissolve so that the targeted ingredients they’re soaked in can sink into the spot and reduce it from the inside out.
The cocktail of ingredients on the patch are also big players in how quickly the spot can apparently be reduced. There’s salicylic acid for gentle exfoliation, hyaluronic acid to act as a moisture magnet, and niacinamide to reduce the appearance of redness.
The microdarts take around two hours to dissolve and after that you can remove the patch – hopefully to a much flatter and coverable spot.
We’re almost looking forward to our next big spot so we can give one a go!
