Launched just last month, Starface is a pimple-patch skincare company providing you with efficient acne solutions. The stickers are called Hydro-Stars, and they work to absorb the fluid surrounding your spot helping to dry it out as well as shielding it from bacteria and preventing skin picking, all the while looking cute of course! The pimple-protecting Hydro-Stars are clinically proven and have demonstrated their efficacy. The company’s founder, beauty journalist Julie Schott, launched Starface with the intent of reversing the stigmatisation of pimples by traditional skincare companies “looking to capitalise on insecurities.”
The patches are Leaping Bunny Certified cruelty free, vegan, oil free and pregnant/nursing safe. Each pack comes with 32 patches. As per their website’s recommendations, the kind of spots that qualify for Starface acne treatment are those with fluid or pus percolating through. If you have identified a spot, apply a Hydro-Star patch onto clean dry skin after you have washed your face and with clean fingertips. The patches will take at least 6 hours to do their thing, once they turn opaque you can remove and discard them. You should notice an immediate reduction in inflammation the following day, though depending on skin type and status of the pimple time taken till desired results may vary. The product has been designed specifically for acne-prone skin but is suitable for any skin type including sensitive due to its gentle composition.
Avid fans of the brand say the Hydro-Stars are well worth the hype, with one customer sharing “My Holy Grail! A definitive must have. These stars are the best thing that I’ve found for my hormonal adult acne. I get breakouts on my cheeks and chin regularly and whenever I get one, I just stick a star on it and overnight the pimple is less inflamed and with less pus/sebum! Then I put another one on and go about my regular day and when I take it off, there’s even less inflammation
and very little to no pus/sebum. They also help prevent acne scarring and face picking. I’m on my 4th refill and I’m not planning on stopping any time soon. Very cute packaging and extremely fast shipping!”
