    Nexcare™ Acne Absorbing Cover is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 126.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really stops your touching Will instantly stop the urge to touch and pick. And it really works. Just remember to hold in place for a quick couple seconds and then roll your finger off of it. This warms it to hold and the roll off helps you from displacing it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good acne patches! I bought this patch several times. It contains both small and big covers, which make the use very flexible. I found that it's the best to use it before sleep, at the morning, my acnes diminished a lot. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well...packaging is difficult/wasteful I love this product and it works very well for breakouts for me and my teenage children. The packaging is hard to open though and once open not resealable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work These got a good review on buzzfeed, so I figured I’d try them out. I’d leave them on overnight and even into the next day and nothing changed. They did stay on, but it’s as if I was wearing a sticker for no good reason. Don’t waste your money, people.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, Bad Packaging?? I have bought these in the past and had great experiences with the product, and upon waking up with a monster zit on my face Monday morning I decided to purchase some on Tuesday while at the store. I brought them home and upon opening the package I was greatly dismayed to find only half the amount of product in the box. I paid full price for half the amount of product I should have received, and I don't know if someone just stole one sheet of stickers out of this particular box or if it came out of manufacturing like this or if due to both the ends of the box being easily opened (no "stay closed" stickers), it just fell out at some point in time before I unfortunately purchased it. Regardless, I am very sad and feeling a little ripped off, not necessarily by Nexcare's wrong-doing (but its possible). In the future to whoever reads this and is considering purchasing this product, check your box contents before purchasing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are you kidding me with this??! Whoa. I mean.....what is this sorcery and why were you not around in my teen years? As a side effect from medication I’m on for IVF, my skin is breaking out so I figured, why the heck not? So I gave them a try. THEY—handclap— ACTUALLY—handclap—WORK—handclap!!!! If you are having a problem, buy them and as many as possible. My mind is blown.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use overnight! I love these little patches. I use them overnight on a just popped or picked pimple and by the morning the pimple is less red, and practically flat. They don't dry out your skin like a topical treatment would, and they also don't let you touch at the pimple all day!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad not great I have used a full box of the acne covers and feel like the best way to review them is by pros and cons. Pros: -They drain small near-surface pimples overnight. -They speed up healing time. -They keep the acne affected are clean. Cons: -They are quite thick (cannot be covered by makeup) and so they could not be worn during the day. -They are not very sticky. -The edges of both sides are sticky making them difficult to apply. Some were wasted due to improper adhesion. -The small patches are very small and so might not be great for someone experiencing larger pimples. Overall I do not know that I would use this product regularly as it only works if it stays on and they have fallen off overnight (despite following the instructions thoroughly). That being said, I will keep some on hand for emergencies
