Hi there! Reporting live from my apartment with no AC in Austin, Texas, where the outside temperature is currently 84 degrees.

Honestly, I’m feeling a bit dizzy this morning, so I’m guzzling my Liquid I.V. and have all the fans pointed on me and kitty Blanche. We are alive, but wow, it’s hot in here, and not in the cool way Nelly sings about.

Luckily, writing doesn’t involve much movement, so let’s do this.

I’m excited to offer a bit of a different review today — this is a face off! It’s the battle of the microneedling patches!

It’s the Skyn Iceland Dissolving Microneedling Patches vs. the Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Microneedling Patches.

I’ve tried both of these, so I can properly report on each. I actually bought the Pacifica patches first and then later saw the Skyn Iceland ones. I bought them both from Ulta.

I assume these patches are an alternative to microneedling — whether it’s at a spa or at home.

Let’s Dive in:

Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Microneedling Patches

What it is: You get 4 circular patches (a little larger than a zit patch) that have self-dissolving needles on one side. The needles have retinoid for anti-aging and hyaluronic acid for hydration.

You can use these between the eyebrows, on smile lines, and crows feet. You can wear them for a few hours or overnight — I wore mine over crows feet and overnight.

Price: $15 for 4 patches

The bottom line: These were less-severe than the Skyn Iceland patches, and they didn’t stick on quite as well. However, they didn’t come off during the night. Because the directions don’t say you can wear them under the eye, I’d say this really depends on where you consider your problem areas to be.

If you’re looking to plump any of the areas listed, then I’d go with the Pacifica patches. If the under eye is more your issue, I’d go with the Skyn Iceland. Both products are vegan and cruelty-free.

Skyn Iceland Dissolving Microneedling Patches

What it is: This is a set of under-eye patches with self-dissolving needles made of Heptapeptide-7 (fights crepey skin), Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (relaxes fine lines), Hyaluronic Acid (boosts hydration), and Icelandic Complex (replenishes nutrients).

These are only for the under eye area, and you can wear them for a few hours or overnight. I wore mine overnight. It made the area feel very tight (while I was wearing them), sort of like a Biore patch.

Price: $14 for 2 patches (1 pair)

The bottom line: I really liked these and noticed a difference right away. I didn’t see that kind of a difference with the Pacifica patches, but my problem area is really my under eye, not crows feet (where I put the Pacifica patches), so I don’t know if I would have seen more of a difference if that was my problem area.

If you’re looking to plump any of the areas listed, then I’d go with the Pacifica patches. If the under eye is more your issue, I’d go with the Skyn Iceland. Both products are vegan and cruelty-free.

I ended up liking the Skyn Iceland more, mostly because it seemed to be a little more of an intense product and because of where it targets. I actually already bought more of them!

But I think the Pacifica patches are good if you have other areas you want to target.

I do appreciate that they are both vegan and cruelty-free!

Have you — or would you try a product like this?
