The stellar pimple patch gets a UV make-over
If you were like me as a kid, you were obsessed with those glow-in-the-dark plastic stars that covered the ceiling of your childhood bedroom. There was something so enchanting about the simple yet magical way they lit up the room transforming it into a galaxy of constellations.
Now you can take that childhood nostalgia and put it on your face, with the new glow-in-the-dark Glow Stars from pimple patch brand Starface. Launched last year, Starface brings some much-needed fun to acne treatments with their star-shaped, Instagram-friendly pimple patches. Vegan and Leaping Bunny certified, the hydrocolloid patches work by drawing out pimple pus, blocking outside bacteria, and preventing picking and popping. To activate the glow on these limited edition versions, simply hold the stars under light for a few moments, put the sticker on, turn your lights off, and watch your pimples light up.
“Glow Star is inspired by bioluminescence (glow in the dark sea creatures) and the plastic stars we stuck on our childhood bedroom ceilings,” Starface founder Julie Schott tells us. “Glow stars are just as fun under the covers as they are at a concert, and we want them to make people feel like the brightest star in the sky. They're like walking around with a ring light on during magic hour."
Launching today, Glow Stars are a limited-edition refill of the brand’s Big Yellow pod and will be available at starface.world for £16.
