Who are Dots for Spots®?

We’re a bold, inclusive brand that’s been inspired by real life. We like to keep things simple and have created a 1-step, fun-to-use, innovative and effective product with a mission to break the stigma of acne.

What are Dots for Spots®?

Dots for Spots® are miniature, sticker-like dots that harness hydrocolloid technology to absorb impurities (pus and fluid) from your spots. Sounds too good to be true? They also provide a no-touch healing environment, protecting from breakout causing bacteria – mostly, your finger!

How does hydrocolloid technology work?

It’s very simple. Hydrocolloid is an adhesive, flexible, absorbent, waterproof and all round super-powered material that creates a moist environment and optimum conditions for your spot to heal. It can also help prevent a scab forming, which can reduce the possibility of scarring. Clever stuff, ey?

How do I use Dots for Spots®?

1.  Cleanse and pat dry the spot you want to target, without applying any serums or spot creams. Dots for Spots® work best on spots that have come to a head.

2. Remove a sheet of dots from their protective pouch. Using the perforated line, carefully tear the sheet to peel off your dot.

3. Place the dot over your spot and press down gently for a couple of seconds. For best results, wear for 6+ hours, or simply leave overnight!

4. Slowly peel off your dot. You can tell it’s ready to be removed when the translucent centre has turned opaque white.

How long should I leave them on for?

You can tell your dot is ready to be removed when the translucent centre has turned opaque white. We usually recommend leaving it on for 6+ hours but every spot has a mind of its own so you may need to change it more or less frequently!

Do they work on all spots?

Dots for Spots® work best on spots that have come to a head, although they are a great way to stop the touching, picking and squeezing of any type of spot – resist, resist!

What skin types are they suitable for?

Dots for Spots® is an inclusive brand for a universal problem and are suitable for all skin types, ages and genders. They’re non-irritating, fragrance-, sulphate-, phthalate-, alcohol- and paraben-free, so no need to worry about any hidden ingredients!

Do you test on animals?

Great question – no, we don’t (and never will!). As well as being proud to say that Dots for Spots® are cruelty-free, we’re also vegan friendly 🐇

Where can I buy them?

Where are they made?
