about our pimple patches
Are Cloud Patch and Moon Patch vegan?
Yes, of course. We are a 100% vegan brand.
Are Common Clouds pimple patches cruelty-free?
Yes. Cloud Patch and Moon Patch are tested on human pimples, never animals.
Do Cloud Patch and Moon Patch work on all skin types?
Yes! Our patches made for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones. We <3 all skins!
How do I choose between Cloud Patch and Moon Patch?
Cloud Patch is made for use on individual pimples, whereas Moon Patch is created for pimple clusters and XL-breakouts. We recommend you keep both at hand to keep you covered for all pimple situations.
When in my skincare routine do I apply my pimple patch?
Pimple patches should always be applied on clean, dry skin. For best results, pop it on before doing the rest of your routine. If you've already toned and moisturised, let the product sink in completely before applying your patch.
Do the pimples patches work on all skin tones?
Yes, they blend seamlessly into all skin tones.
Do Cloud Patch and Moon Patch work on all pimples?
Cloud Patch and Moon Patch work best on late-stage pimples that have come to a head, meaning it’s full of pimple fluid and gunk for the hydrocolloid to absorb. If you happen to pop your pimple (it happens to us too!), don’t panic. Put a cloud on it, and the pimple patch will help your skin to recover. We also like to wear our pimple patches on brewing, early-stage pimples to prevent us from picking, but the most dramatic results will always be on the ready-to-pop ones.
When do I see results from my pimple patch?
Each pimple is different, and everyone’s skin is different, so results can vary. You should see a noticeable difference when you remove Cloud Patch or Moon Patch after a minimum of six hours. Repeat if needed until the pimple is a thing of the past.
What are the benefits of centella?
We are OBSESSED with centella – can you tell? Every Common Cloud pimple patch is infused with super-calming cocktail of three types of bio-active Centella asiatica-extracts (Asiaticoside, Madecassic acid and Asiatic acid). Centella’s anti-inflammatory and calming properties makes it a must-have for sensitive, acne- and redness-prone skin.
Can I wear Cloud Patch during the day?
Of course you can! We worked super-hard to create a next-to-invisible pimple patch. Actually, it’s been really hard for us to photograph the images seen here on our website and on our social since the Cloud is barely visible. No matter if you wear it day or overnight, the pimple patch needs six hours to work it’s magic.
Can I wear Moon Patch in the day?
Yes, you can. We worked hard to make it as invisible as possible. However, since it quite big, you might want to use it overnight.
For how long should I wear my pimple patch?
The hydrocolloid needs at least six hours to do it’s thing and flatten the pimple. You can wear it during the day or overnight. There is no max time limit, but we recommend removing or changing your pimple patch after ten hours.
Are pimple patches safe to use in combination with acne medication?
Yes, even though we always recommend a patch test if your skin is very sensitised. Many acne medications – both oral and topical – can dry out skin and make it more sensitive. The Cloud Patch or Moon Patch don'tcontain any active ingredients that should clash with your prescribed medication, but in some cases putting a hydrocolloid bandage straight on top of topical acne creams can make them more potent. We recommend that you use your topical medication and pimple patch at different times if you are unsure, or consult your dermatologist.
Are pimple patches safe to use when pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes! Hormonal breakouts during pregnancy are very common, and we know that many women want to find an alternative to acids and over-the-counter creams.
What's the difference between Cloud Patch and Moon Patch?
The shape and size! The recipe in both our patch styles are the same – vegan hydrocolloid and 3 x bio-active Centella extracts. Cloud Patch is smaller (but available in two sizes in every pack) and Moon Patch is larger and especially designed for bigger breakouts and pimple clusters.
Can I wear foundation under my pimple patch?
The Cloud Patch works best on clean and dry skin. The oil in makeup might affect the pimple patch’s ability to stick onto your skin, and the hydrocolloid can’t flex it’s full potential to absorb fluid from the pimple. However, even when used with makeup, the Cloud Patch will protect your skin from picking fingers and outer bacteria. But we recommend to always give our pimple patch a clean canvas to work on.
Can I wear foundation on top of my pimple patch?
No and yes. It is not harmful in any way, but you might get makeup stuck around the edges. It doesn’t look great to be honest ;) Also it can affect the patch’s stickiness. We find the best results to be avoiding foundation too close to the edges, especially foundation that contains oil.
Can I exercise and sweat with my patch on?
Yes! Cloud Patch and Moon Patch are waterproof and always up for a sweat sesh. After your workout, remove the pimple patch, wash your face and apply a new patch if needed.
Where are Common Clouds pimple patches made?
In South Korea, the world centre for cutting-edge beauty and skincare. We are super-proud to have partnered with a Korean biotech-company specialising in wound-care to bring you the most effective (and cutest!) pimple patches.

How do I store my pimple patches?
We recommend storing your patches in the original packaging at room temperature as high humidity and heat over a long time might impact the product. With that said, we have stored our pimple patches in our bathrooms for several months, and they have survived steam from hot and long showers.
