In this uninterrupted episode in partnership with Hero Cosmetics, we chat with brand co-founder Ju Rhyu about the making of The Mighty Patch, the translucent acne sticker that now sells once every 2 seconds. You’ll find out what makes Hero’s medical-grade hydrocolloid patch superior to the many dupes that have cropped up since its 2017 launch (the shade!), along with the best way to work its mighty magic into your makeup routine.

You’ll hear about:

  • Why Reddit was a goldmine for understanding acne-sufferers’ needs in the brand’s development
  • How to layer concealer with the acne patch (over or under– we find out once and for all!) 
  • Ju’s personal skincare routine – from a luxe retinol facial oil to her fave French pharmacy find
  • The one up-and-coming beauty brand she thinks needs to be on our radar
  • The innovative, acne-meets-aging fix that she’s dropping next
