Thumb story - 4 months ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the Nexcare Absolute Waterproof Tape from 3-M. This is great stuff. I managed to cut my thumb and I needed a bandage. The bandages wouldn't stay stick on my thumb. So I decided to try this Nextcare tape. Wow did it work! I wore it for 2 days, and it was still stuck! And my cut was almost healed. I could move my thumb just like always and actually forgot that the cut was there. I would highly recommend this Nextcare tape to anyone who needs to put a cover over a wound.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a free sample of 3M Nexcare absolute waterproof tape. I recently injured my right ring finger and need to prepare some chicken for dinner. Knowing that I would be washing my hands frequently while preparing the chicken and wanting to keep my wound clean, I wrapped my finger with a band aid and the over wrapped it with the Nexcare absolute waterproof tape. I had washed my hands several times during the preparation process and the tape held up tremendously well. Even though it had gotten wet many times, it adhered to the band aid and did not lose its grip on my finger.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great adhesive that is waterproof! It has enough hold that it gets the job done but also removes easily. I like that it is waterproof for added durability. It is flexible tape which is great for athletic use.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great bandaid replacement! So many times bandaids just can’t fit or stay where you need them and this product fills that need. It sticks where you want it too and yet can be easily removed. I think this is a great addition to any first aid kit!

Water proof tape perfect for hikes!

Holli - 5 months ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a nice pair of hiking boots that give me a terrible blister on my right inside ankle every time I wear them. I was given a package of Nexcare Waterproof Tape to sample and decided to see if this tape would help. This tape is amazing! Not only is is waterproof, but it is soft, almost like mole skin. I put a strip on my ankle, went on a hike, and didn't get a blister! The tape has a soft slightly stretchy feel to it and was very comfortable. I completely forgot it was there. I love that it is waterproof as well. Normally when I hike I switch my boots for water shoes so I can stand in the lakes and rivers. This tape held up fantastically. I didn't have to put a new piece on, I was able to change from boots to sandals and back to boots without worrying about my ankle.

Sticky waterproof tape

4 out of 5 stars
Alimama - 5 months ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this waterproof tape to cover an external heart monitor while showering, and it worked so so. The tape is fairly sticky. Some of the tape would lift up near my shoulder when it got wet, so some water got underneath the tape, but I think if someone used the tape away from joints and areas that move, it might stay in place better. I received this waterproof tape for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked that it was easy to cut and tear. It’s a good thickness too, if you’re wearing it around ankles and are breaking in new shoes, this might prevent blisters. I do wish the tape was wider though. The stickiness was good and didn’t leave sticky residue on your skin.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like this tape because it’s really easy to use and it holds well without having my skin feeling itchy. It holds up well when wet but not soaked. I would definitely recommend using this tape for small bandages.

Better than bandaids!

Shellykz - 5 months ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] While raking, the wooden handle took off some of my skin between my thumb and pointer finger, near the lower knuckle of my thumb. I only give this detail because that is an awkward spot for a bandaid. But still, I tried to wear bandaids for 2-3 days. One side would stay on but the other side would always hang off. I also wash my hands a lot (I'm an elementary teacher) so the water would not help it to stay on. I almost gave up but then I remembered that I had this waterproof tape. I was a little afraid to use it because it seemed thick and seemed like it might hurt my scrape. I decided to try it anyway. I put a gauzepad on and taped it. Wow!! I noticed a difference straight away. First of all, the tape is thick but it's super soft and flexible. The stickiness is superb. I washed my hands a few times and have been doing my normal things. I even showered with it on. Everything is still on with no signs of moving! The tape is comfortable too. I'm not sure why I'd use anything else now. Highly recommend this product. It's better than I expected!

Painless removal - 5 months ago
originally posted on Nexcare.com
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I applied the Nexcare absolute waterproof tape to my middle finger of my right hand to protect it while lifting and using my hand weights and performing household tasks. This tape was so comfortable I forgot it was in place on my finger. When flexing my finger it did not bind at my joints or produce any pressure. I wash my dishes by hand and was amazed that it stayed adhered to itself and my finger each time I did this task. It also remained in place during bathing and washing my face and ringing out wash cloths and dish rags. It did not slip out of place while doing my workouts with hand weights.

Performs Well

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fortunately, I have yet to suffer a skin wound since the sample product has arrived. That has not prevented me from trying a little to see if it indeed does stretch a bit and is indeed waterproof. It does so wonderfully and appears to approximate my skin tone well enough. While it binds well it removes painlessly and leaves no stickiness behind. Can't really say I look FORWARD to an injury but I'm glad to be able to have this product at hand when that eventuality occurs!

It’s a Sticky situation!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I volunteer to evaluate products for 3M, and I recently received a free sample of Nexcare absolute waterproof tape. I have a child who runs cross country who has had a toe injury this season. It has been very difficult, because the bandage has been coming off because of all the sweat. Along, comes my free tape and it actually works! It is super sticky, adhering to the gauze and staying put! It is easy to tear, no need for scissors. He didn’t complain it was too tight around the toe giving him comfort and flexibility for running. For fun, I did an experiment placing a piece on my hand. Over several hours, I washed my hands multiple times and did dishes. When I was finished the tape was still adherent to my skin with no signs it was letting go! Removal felt just like taking off a bandaid.

Really waterproof

Nik2 - 6 months ago
originally posted on Nexcare.com
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I volunteered to evaluate products for 3m, and the company recently sent me a sample of Nexcare waterproof tape. Sometimes I tend to cut my fingers when using knives and I constantly have to wash my hand at least 10 or more times a day. So wearing bandaids can become quite a pain because they keep falling off. The Nexcare tape is very sturdy and most importantly, it's waterproof. It doesn't come off with my frequent hand washing.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this tape free from 3M to test and review. I used a piece on my finger while doing laundry and dishes. I stayed on all day even after soap and water use. I placed it on my knuckle to test the strength and flexibility and was impressed with how well it worked.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great tape for those who need to wrap a bandage or gauze around like a finger or a toe. It is easy to take off the roll, easy to tear it off, and easy to apply. I have used it on my son's finger splint and he took a shower with it on and it stayed on. I have not been able to do that with other kinds of medical tape. I received this product free from 3M, but I would buy it anyways.
