Thin edges, but shiny surface
January 19, 2019
I've tried a BUNCH of different hydrocolloid bandage brands.
these are super thin and they stick well. I can often get a whole 24 hours out of one patch even with face washing. They're comfortable.
they're super thin and don't absorb a ton if you have a lot of secretion. The outside surface of the patch is slightly shiny so it doesn't blend as seamlessly with skin the way a more matted surface can.
The cost is good- not the best value I've come across, but a decent one for the functionality. Not super noticeable (on a white face) in pictures, but definitely visible in person.
I probably won't buy these again because I had hoped they'd be suitable for wearing out of the house. I have a different Korean brand I prefer for staying home in that is thicker/more absorbent. At the end of the day the Clearisil brand patches are Still the best ones I've found for wearing out of the house & under makeup, plus great absorbency and wear time. The Clearisils are also still the most expensive per patch that I've tried too. :/
I'm still going to keep looking for a brand that is more affordable and still looks good on my skin for daytime wear.
