This is not as good as the Nexcare Acne Patch. But this is so much more thinner. It’s so thin that you can hardly see it when applied. So that’s the only nice thing about this. When it come to removing the dirt and spots, it doesn’t do a good job. You hardly see any residue when you pull out the patch. So ya, don’t think this works as well. But it’s just so thin. I bet you can wear it out and no one will notice.
