    Nexcare™ Acne Absorbing Cover is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 128.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly Amazing I was sent this product to review and was a little skeptical. I didn't think that it would work at all. I tried it yesterday and when I woke up in the morning my pimple was gone! I was really excited because nothing has ever worked that fast for me before. I only used these a night, because I don't really wear make up to cover them up. Depending on where you put these on your face, you can't see them until you are up close anyways. I haven't seen this in stores yet, but when I do I will buy them again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great acne whit head product I love these. Saw them a few years back when they came out and had to try them. They will not work on regular inflamed pimples. The pimple has to have a white head on it or if you squeezed it and stuff came out it will work. You put it on the pimple and it extracts all the puss and infection. It does an awesome job. The next morning you get to see how much came out and normally the pimple is free of infection and is reduced in size and redness. Sometimes if the pimple is really bad it takes a couple of these but it always makes the pimples disappear way faster than if you hadn't used them. Highly recommend. I always have a stockpile of them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I'm so glad I discovered these acne absorbing covers, though I usually refer to them as my "pimple stickers" haha. I love that they come in different sizes so I can use them for different problem areas. For me, they are clear and nearly invisible so somes I wear them out in public. Most of the times I like to use them overnight, and it really does absorb the white pus (eww) from my pimples and speeds up their recovery. I think another way this is helpful is that it really stops me from touching my acne. Just keeping it clean and not picking or scratching or squeezing is really great. I definitely recommend these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is a great product, and works really well.They were easy to open and once I got my face ready, washed and clean I applied the patch. Easy to do. I was surprised because you really could not notice it that much. I put some make up over it, just a tad and you really could not notice it at all after that. Impressive! As it began to work it did change color. There was no pain or any feeling of being uncomfortable with it. The next morning the blemish was actually gone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what it says I received a sample of these. I tried it last night,on a small pimple on my chin . It felt a bit weird at first, but soon I forgot I had it on. Left it on overnight, removed it this morning . The pimple had drained and was almost gone this morning ! I will definitely use this again , and recommend it to others. Just wish they came in larger size to fit over a ingrown hair/boil type pimple.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Covers Too Small and Fall Off I was very excited about this product when I purchased it but after opening the package I was very disappointed. You don't get many of the 'covers' in each package - only a small sheet. You get a lot of very tiny ones that don't cover pimples adequately. You should be able to choose the size you want instead of getting all the tiny ones. The worst part is that the covers fall off after only a few minutes - they never stay in place and so they don't work for me. My face was clean and dry when I applied the 'covers' and they NEVER stayed on. I found them on the floor, on my hands, on a different part of my face, everywhere. Again, I was very disappointed with this product. I wish the product came in larger sizes and would stay in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT!!! I received these as a sample a while back , AND I LOVE THEM!! I would greatly recommend them. For those blemishes that aren't ready to pop, but you know are there, these are great because they stop you from picking at them. Works over the course of a day or two, depending on the blemish... Will buy as soon as I am running low.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pimples! I've used these many times and it's amazing how much oil and pus they absorb! They get rid of your pimples very quickly since you can't pick at them and absorb most of the oil. I highly recommend these. I like that there are two sizes. Most of the time, I just use one the whole day and by the end of the night, my pimple has shrunk considerably!
