We love our Starface Hydro-Stars. We wear them at the slightest hint of a pimple. We wear them to the grocery store. We take cute selfies and IG Stories, like Danielle Prescod, of our faces adorned with the stickers. We love the OG yellow happy face Hydro-stars, we love the glow-in-the-dark and holographic iterations, and we love the rainbow stars. Naturally, when we learned Starface would be collaborating for the first time ever, we couldn’t wait to see what was in store.
On November 18th, Starface released their latest pimple patches in collaboration with Hello Kitty, and they may just be the cutest ones yet. Just in time for Sanrio’s 60th Hello Kitty birthday, these stickers, like all of Starface’s Hydro-stars, aim to ‘transform pimples into opportunities of self-expression.’ Both Starface and Sanrio share the believe that ‘products we use every day and surround ourselves with can bring happiness and positivity to people of all ages.’
The Big Hello Kitty contains 32 Hello Kitty shaped acne patches with starry eyes. Like all other Starface Hydro-Stars, these stickers contain the same formula with 100% hydrocolloid, and are proven to accelerate zit healing by drawing out pus, blocking out bacteria and preventing the inevitable desire to pick and poke. The Hello Kitty Hydro-Stars, are vegan, safe for all skin types and safe for pregnant women. The all-white pod also has Hello Kitty’s face.
While the limited-edition collection sold out in less than 60 hours (!!!), refills have been re-stocked on the Starface website, and there is a waitlist for the limited edition Big Hello Kitty pod + stickers.
We think they may be a perfect gift to give and spread joy this holiday season.
