Because why not?

Formula 10.0.6 - Overnight Success Spot Minimizing Patches.

15 May 2014
I recieved these a lifetime ago in a Priceline goody bag, they were often pulled out of my stash and looked at when I was searching for something to replace an empty but they always went back in the drawer because at the time they weren't what I needed.



A few weeks ago they were pulled out of the drawer and kept out, I decided they needed to be out and in my view so I would actually get some use out of them before they sailed past their expiry date (soon!).

I ended up with a spot on my nose which is basically unheard of for me and I popped it because I could and sometimes I just can't help myself, after wiping over the area with Witch Hazel I applied a patch and went to bed.


The Formula 10.0.6 Overnight Success Patches are basically a really thin plastic adhesive spot that you place over your problem area and it's treated overnight with things like Salicylic Acid, Grape Seed Extract and Tea Tree.


The patches come in little sachets which are encased in a flat box, you get 4 sachets and each sachet holds 21 patches, so from one box you get 84 applications, these retail for about $6.99AUD which makes them a fairly good deal if they work for you.

Before I talk anymore about the product let me show you the results I had.

Next Morning

So on the far left we have the spot just after I popped it and cleaned the area, you can probably tell by the little volcanic crater that is on my face that it was ready for eruption and I just hurried along the process.

The next photo shows the patch on the skin, they are certainly noticeable but at the same time the material they are made of and the slim design makes them fairly subtle. I wouldn't wear it out to a bar but it's not likely to draw stares if you decide to wear it to the supermarket.

The final photo shows the result after removing the patch the next morning, it's nothing miraculous obviously but what I really liked was the fact that my skin had a chance to heal without forming a scab, I was able to put makeup on without a hint of any issues having been there, all that was left was the redness which is obviously easily covered.

I have tried these on spots that have not been popped or are still growing and as far as I could tell they had no effect on me so I'm not majorly feeling the love for these but they work great for helping the skin to heal nicely after I exorcised the little puss demons from my face.

Pros:
  • Fairly subtle.
  • Helps with healing.

Cons:
  • Didn't help with any of my pimples that were growing or hadn't been popped.

Conclusion:
I really like the way my skin healed while it was being treated by these little patches so I'll continue to use them but I probably won't repurchase them again. They were fun to play with, I like little novelty beauty products, they keep things interesting but I would be more likely to reach for a hydrocolloid patch and some spot treatment gel in the future.

I have another idea for these little patches, expect the unexpected!
