So, how did Hero Cosmetics come to be? It all started with a patch. Back in 2017, the brand came to fruition after co-founder and CEO, Ju Rhyu, had a pimple emergency.

Thanks to Hero Cosmetics, gone are the days of stripping, purging, and resurfacing.

There is truly something for everyone in this lineup, and since Hero Cosmetics products are formulated to be sensitive skincare solutions, they are suitable for multiple skin types and concerns.

Mighty Patch – Original

This award-winning patch is formulated to help address blemishes thanks to its key ingredient – medical-grade hydrocolloid. Designed to heal and flatten pimples, this patch gently absorbs and traps gunk so you can wake up to clearer skin. This is one of my personal favorites from the brand because it’s so simple yet so effective. Not only does it create a barrier to keep me from picking or popping my zits, but I also love that it’s a zero-effort nighttime acne patch you can just apply and go to sleep with- win-win!

Mighty Patch – Invisible +

On the flip side, the Invisible + Mighty Patches are a seamless daytime skincare solution that are specially designed to be super thin and comfortable for all-day wear, so you can tackle your blemishes on the go. I actually love that these patches are practically invisible when applied so I can wear them confidently while out and about. The best part is that these patches do all the work for me, making it easy to address my sudden skincare concerns in a pinch. Plus, knowing my skin is being treated while going about my daily routine is an added bonus!

Mighty Patch – Surface

The Mighty Patch Surface patches are large and put you in charge of treating your skin! Designed as a more convenient larger patch to target bigger problem areas, these jumbo-size strips are made of medical-grade hydrocolloid and are perfect for pimple clusters that need a little extra attention. I tried one of these patches on a cluster of pimples that popped up on my forehead and loved how convenient the patch was to use- plus, it’s suitable for my sensitive skin! The XL size allowed the product to address multiple pimples at once and they both reduced in size and swelling after one use! Since these patches are designed to create a healing environment for problem areas, I was thoroughly impressed by the results.

Mighty Patch – Nose

As someone who experiences large nose pores, these Mighty Patches are a lifesaver! For enhanced results, I took the advice listed on the brand’s website and exfoliated before applying and it worked wonders- I love how effective the patches were at gently removing gunk and reducing the size of my enlarged pores seemingly overnight! These are definitely a new staple in my skincare routine because they are designed to help improve the looks of my pores, overall. 

Although the Mighty Patches are HOLR’s definite add-to-carts from the brand, I also love that Hero Cosmetics offers a range of other best-selling products and tools designed to target your unique skincare concerns. For instance, the Rescue Blam +Red Correct sounds like the perfect solution to help address and blur my skin’s redness. As well, the Pimple Correct pen seems like an effective spot-treatment tool to help combat early-stage pimples.
