Ever get pesky pimples you wish you could get rid of quickly? I’m not really an acne-prone person but having to wear face masks during the pandemic has made my face – particularly my nose – sweat more and thus produce pimples every now and then. While I never really thought much about it since I felt like “it comes with the territory”, my life changed when I got to know The Basics.
The Basics is a skincare brand founded by two friends who share the same passion for skincare. With so many skincare brands and trends available today, they understand how overwhelming it may be – especially for those who are just getting into skincare – to figure out where to actually start. With the aim to #UncomplicateYourSkincare, The Basics wants to be an inclusive brand that can cater to different skin types at an affordable price and help guide beginners on how to #StartwithTheBasics.
Their flagship product just happens to be exactly what I needed: The Basics No Pimple Pimple Patch.
The Basics’ pimple patches are manufactured in Korea and were created because the founders knew how tricky, time-consuming, and frustrating getting rid of pimples can be. This is why they chose pimple patches as their flagship product. “We want to provide consumers a quick fix to their pimple problems without breaking the bank,” they explain. Made with hydrocolloid, The Basics’ pimple patches soak up liquid and dry pimples out overnight. Their pimple patches are also cruelty-free and paraben-free and are suitable for all skin types.
Truth be told, I had never used pimple patches before this. As mentioned, I’m not really a pimple-prone person. I started using these a few weeks ago whenever pimples popped up, though; and while I was skeptical at first, I was amazed by how easy it is to use and how effective it actually is.
All you have to do is choose a pimple patch that matches the size of your pimple, stick it on, wait for it to turn opaque, and remove it. I was surprised by how quickly they work, effectively lessening the redness and letting the nastiness seep out of the affected areas. Other times, it takes a couple of days. Either way, when you have one on, you can hardly even tell you have a pimple; so it’s really a win-win.
The Basics delivers nationwide and they are available on their Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as on Shopee and Lazada. If you tend to have pesky pimples you want to get rid of, I highly recommend stocking up on these pimple patches just to have them on hand whenever you might need them.
