Nexcare acne patches available in America?!

Hi y'all!

I'm back from my trip and still in one piece, which is probably (maybe) good news. I plan on posting about my trip in a little bit, but first I just had to share something I just discovered whilst poking around Amazon - it seems like there's now a western version of Nexcare Acne Dressings available?! They're being sold as "3M Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers". In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, I mean these:

Overseas version of Nexcare acne patches.

They're basically somewhat discreet little hydrocolloid bandages cut into convenient sizes for covering acne spots. They work by drawing pus and oil out of the affected area, which is gross but useful. :) Anyway, these have long been available in various Asian countries (and for purchase online via eBay and other resellers), so I was really excited to see a Western version on Amazon today. I'm not sure if these are brand new or if I'm just behind the times, but in any case, here's what the new package looks like:

Western version.

I haven't tried these yet, so I can't comment on whether or not they're different from their Asian counterparts, but since they're so readily available I will be giving them a try. One can purchase 3M Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers on or on These are actually part of a buy-three-get-one-free deal on Amazon right now, so if you're a fan this is the time to stock up! The sale is now over, boo-hoo.

Have you tried 3M Nexcare's acne patches? What did you think?
