THE Breakout Box

Most of my skincare posts lately have been focusing on more acne based products. But what about the most annoying of them all…. Breakouts! Patchology has recently launched THE breakout box! Although this is named ‘Breakout Box 3-in-1 Acne Treatment Kit’ I would not use this on acne! This product is the go to for clearing skin in a hurry! Blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes are all eliminated with the help of this kit!

What is it?

24 pimple-shrinking salicylic acid dots, 24 whitehead absorbing Hydrocolloid dots, 3 blackhead-eliminating nose strips.

What it does?

Blemishes have a nasty habit of popping up at the most inconvenient times. We don’t have time to sit around and wait for them to fade, so we created this gentle yet effective trio of acne-clearing patches and strips. Anti-inflammatory and bacteria-banishing ingredients (like salicylic acid, tea tree oil and witch hazel to name a few) start healing spots and unclogging pores in a matter of hours. It’s time to put your best face forward.


The packaging is super cute! Inside the box you get 9 sachets each holding the 3 cures: Salicylic dots, Hydrocolloid dots, and nose strips! I love how these are all packed into a tiny box which is ideal for travelling!

Hydrocolloid dots are my lifeline!!! Whenever I have a breakout, I apply one of these dots and leave overnight, when I wake up, all gunk and dirt is removed! Wearing these dots I was very curious as my skin is a little oily and sleeping on these… I did not think they would stay on an hour, let alone all night long!

Salicylic dots are also amazing! Filled with salicylic acid, this treatment exfoliates the inside of pores to fight blemishes and gives better skin! These are perfect for drying pimples out! Again the same stickers as the Hydrocolloid dots, only filled with a different acid to help target more hard to fight pimples.

Nose strips are a must have! As any other nose strips, these are left on for several minutes until hardened, then peeled off to reveal your new baby skin nose. However I have noticed a lot more gunk is removed from these nose strips in particular than to the usual boots ones I tend to use.

This box is essential!!! For both men and women, to keep skin blemish free! The box has lasted me a couple months! I try to use a nose strip every 2 weeks to remove build up, although the dots I have had for a longgggg time. This will depend on how often you break out, I tend not to that often any more, so I can use one or two every couple weeks. You get 24 dots in each pack so you are bound to have enough to last you months on end!


As I mentioned earlier this is called ‘Breakout Box 3-in-1 Acne Treatment Kit’! I personally would not use this at all on acne, as if you have read my previous posts then you will know I have suffered from this myself. I recommend the only products used on acne itself are prescription treatments from your doctor. Do not try drugstore products unless advised by your doctor first. However for regular pimples and blemishes, this is a life saver!
