I’m going to share something I’m pretty self-conscious about: I have such. bad. acne on my jawline. Not just bumps or blackheads (though I have those too), but really nasty cystic spots that hurt. I also have a lot of pustules that just aren’t pretty. Hormonal acne is the bane of my existence. While sleeping on these pillowcases every night and using these products does make it slightly better, I can’t beat all of my spots. That’s where my all-time favorite, holy grail pimple patches come in: The Zitsticka Killa Kit.
What are Zitsticka Killa Kit patches?
Zitsticka’s Killa Kit are zit patches powered by signature microdart technology. Tiny microdarts self-dissolve to flood the epicenter of your early stage zit with targeted ingredients, essentially stopping your zit in its tracks. They fight acne when it’s still forming under your skin, making them the perfect acne-fighting tool to include in your arsenal.
What does it do?
Think of the Killa Kit as a high-powered pimple patch – it’s the superhero in quest for clear skin. When you apply it to a zit that has yet to surface, it targets that pesky pre-zit with a bunch of acne-fighting ingredients that work to prevent it from ever rearing its ugly head. Its goal? Stop zits before they ever come to the surface.
How do Zitsticka Killa Kit patches work?
The Killa patches work by using self-dissolving microdarts to deliver potent acne-fighting ingredients (think hyaluronic acid, salicyclic acid, niacinamide, and oligopeptide-76, to name just a few) that stop zits in their tracks. Combined, these high powered pimple patches kill your zit before you ever see it come to the surface!
To use, first swipe the target area with the CLEANA Swab. These swabs are soaked in exfoliating, de-stressing ingredients to prime the zit for total eradication.
Once dry, apply your KILLA patch.
How long do you leave Zitsticka on?
For best results, you should leave the Killa patch on for at least 2 hours, but they will be most effective when left on overnight (to give the microdarts sufficient time to dissolve).
I usually use these overnight, but if my acne is particularly bad and I want to stop myself from popping a zit (I know, I know – that’s bad! But sometimes I just can’t help it), I stick one of these on. They are not noticeable and I’ll wear them while exercising, running errands, etcetera.
Can you use these patches on a popped pimple?
No – the Zitsticka Killa Kit patches are designed to be used on acne that hasn’t yet come to a head. If your pimple is already a whitehead, or you’ve popped it, I would recommend another acne patch (such as the ones from Corsx or Hero Cosmetics) or just sticking a bandaid over it until it heals.
Are Zitsticka Killa acne patches effective?
Long story short – yes. The Killa Kit is the real deal. I have been through about 6 or 7 of these boxes (two of which were gifted, the rest I’ve purchased with my own money), and I continue to go back to them because they work so well. With one use, or maximum two if a zit is particularly nasty, I see the spot flatten and go away on its own. It helps me to stop picking at my acne and reduce the likelihood of scarring and hyperpigmentation.
These patches are a little pricey, at $29 for 8 patches, which works out to about $3.60 per patch. However, because these are only intended to be used on cystic/under-the-skin spots, this price isn’t as bad as you might think at first glance. You can save these for the really nasty acne, and use cheaper patches for the whiteheads you likely experience more frequently. To me, they are worth it – the results speak for themselves.
