Everyone has lived with pimples.
And everyone has tried to squeeze a pimple which, of course, made it worse, then covered it in ointment that did nothing, or aggravated it.
Yes, we've been there.
So had Ju Rhyu, cofounder/CEO of Hero Cosmetics, who was frustrated with the lack of effective pimple treatments.
For something affecting nearly the entire population, why wasn't there something that actually helped, and fast?
That's when she designed the award-winning Mighty Patch Original, described as "actual magic".
Creator at breaking point
"Hero began in 2017, when I had yet another pimple emergency, but my sensitive skin had reached a breaking point with the harsh acids of the world," Ju reveals.
"My issue wasn’t just my issue – a lot of people felt just the same.
"Why wasn’t there a solution that worked with the skin, not against it?
"The stripping, the purging, the resurfacing, the ‘wait two weeks’ before the redness goes away?
"There had to be a better alternative."
Hero's Mighty Patch has changed the game, visibly reducing pimples and acne, while protecting, hydrating and restoring within six-to-12 hours.
The tiny translucent-beige patch works on all skin types and protects from picking, while extracting impurities and reducing the chances of scarring.
Magic happens at night
Hero's night time acne patch is so revolutionary it was named Allure's Best of Beauty Award Winner in 2020: "The Original's hydrocolloid disc works mini wonders, shrinking whiteheads down to size. And that size? Barely detectable."
According to nearly 2000 five-star reviews, customers agree.
"Super easy to use and effective," one happy customer said.
"Also prevents me from touching and picking at my face, so helps it actually heal.
"Perfect for little spots all over the face!"
"Love these patches," another wrote.
"I would definitely order them more, as they are effective and a great addition to your skincare, especially on bad days."
"This stuff works like actual magic," a third person revealed.
"You NEED to get this.
"They’re just the right size and all you need to do is leave it on overnight and then take it off in the morning.
"Trust me, you won’t regret this purchase."
Safe and gentle
The Mighty Patch is safe, gentle, and non-irritating for all ages and skin types.
Made of plant-based hydrocolloid – a natural fluid-absorbing gel – it’s chemical-free, medical-grade, allergy tested, and great for sensitive skin.
In fact, Hero restricted more than irritating 2400 ingredients, allowing more people the chance for clear skin.
"Acne, rosacea, and dark spots aren’t going away – but the stigma around how we talk about them and, most importantly, how we treat them, can," Ju says
"We set out to do just that.
"Now we’re here, over 30 products later, all created to treat, prevent, and repair – born out of the idea that got us started: gentle, effective solutions that give the power back to you and your skin."
The patch couldn't be easier to use.
Simply peel off the sheet-like a sticker, then cover the pimple and leave for at least six hours, preferably while you sleep.
When the patch turns opaque, it's time to remove it and see the pimple nearly gone.
You can shop a box of 36 12mm patches for $12.99 or 72 for $21.99, but if you're worried that you'll get stranded over time, you can also subscribe to receive a box each month, or every 45 or 60 days.
