Starface’s Hello Kitty collab will make you feel cute again during lockdown


TextJessica Heron-Langton

Making that trip to Tesco all that more interesting!

After launching in 2019, Starface – the Gen Z favourite pimple patch brand – has gained a cult following, through its determination to change the conversation around acne and skincare. Although many spot stickers have come before this (usually transparent, designed to be invisible, and to draw as little attention to the irritated area as possible), Starface has changed this approach, in a big way. 

Its mission? To draw as much attention to the irritated area as possible, in an attempt to translate pimples into an opportunity for self-expression. 

With the brand’s original big yellow star sticker a bona fide fixture in the beauty community, Starface has gone onto introduce various iterations of its recognisable star-shaped patches – creating magical glow-in-the-dark stickers, a facial cleanser, and more recently, spot stickers aimed to encourage young people to vote.

And now, the skincare label is launching its first-ever co-created product and collaboration, with the Japanese company design Sanrio, for a limited edition Hello Kitty collection.

Collaborating on a shared belief that the objects we use and surround ourselves with every day should bring happiness and positivity to our lives, what better time to add some spice to your surroundings now that lockdown 2.0 is in full swing? Along with helping your skin, these patches will definitely brighten up your walk to Tesco or your hourly saunter around the living room.

Coming in a pack of 32, in an accompanying Big Hello Kitty reusable pod, the stickers will be in the shape of the cute cartoon character, and will help accelerate zit healing by drawing out pimple pus, blocking outside bacteria, and prevent you from poking and picking. Sign us up!

The Hello Kitty Hydro-Stars are available now
