Counting Florence Pugh, Millie Bobby Brown, and Nicola Peltz-Beckham among its loyal fans, Starface’s hydrocolloid pimple patches add a little fun to the fight against acne. Designed to accelerate the healing of pimples by absorbing pus and protecting blemishes from bacteria and skin picking, Hydro-Stars help reduce inflammation and prevent scarring. Ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin, these little patches are free from harsh chemicals and fragrances, making them a gentle yet effective solution for managing breakouts.
