Hi everyone! Both I and my daughter have been pretty sick with asthma and infected coughs, and I’m still feeling a bit weak, so I haven’t done anything beauty-related the last few days or had the desire to do so…but that desire seems to be coming back slowly. I nabbed this Etude House Black Charcoal Chin Patch from my sister a few days back but only got it out tonight. It’s kind of a novelty item for me. I’ve tried lots of nose strips before, but not a chin strip—it seemed like a fun thing to try.
Adhesive chin care patch formulated with Charcoal and Aloe Vera to absorb embedded oil and residues from the chin while tightening pores and moisturizing.
It smells good! Mild and sweetishly herbal, with a hint of mint. It’s black and has a thinner, longer shape than most nose strips. I guess based from the picture on the front of the packaging, you’re supposed to place it on the bottom part of the chin, but I dunno, I stuck it right underneath my bottom lip, and it reached from one corner of my lip to the other.
The instructions directed me to wet my skin, then put on the patch and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Freshly peeled off from the plastic film, the adhesive side felt slightly sticky , which was good because I dislike strips that have to be rubbed with water then get all melty when wet. The Etude House Chin Patch gave my skin a mild cooling sensation which made my skin feel pleasantly ticklish.
After a while it began to feel stiff and I knew it was ready to be peeled off. It wasn’t too sticky and wasn’t totally stuck to my skin, so it didn’t take much effort to pull off. Looking at the patch once I’d taken it off, well, there wasn’t much there. Just some dead, dry skin on about 2 areas, and a handful of whiteheads. Ehh. It would’ve been nice if the patch had taken off more whiteheads, because next to my nose, my chin is the part if my face that grows the most whiteheads.
Etude House Black Charcoal Chin Patch – What I like:
- The pleasant, gentle scent, which was a surprise treat
- The price—it’s only PhP 38 each.
- The shape of the patch fit my chin area quite well.
- It didn’t hurt to take it off.
- It didn’t leave any residue.
- It didn’t make my skin feel itchy.
- My skin felt much softer after use.
- It’s easy to come by at Etude House branches.
Etude House Black Charcoal Chin Patch – What I don’t like:
- It left my skin looking red.
- After the redness faded, there wasn’t much difference to the appearance of my skin.
- It took off very few whiteheads and dry skin.
It was a new thing to try and it’s one of the cheapest items at Etude House, but unfortunately, you also get what you pay for. There are other products that can make the skin on my chin feel softer and smoother—I’d rather have a patch or strip that takes off most of the whiteheads there.
