Peeling rubber off your skin
on March 7, 2012
I did not think a "Band-aid" would warrant a review but thought otherwise yesterday. These bandaids are cheaply made and very strange. I have found similiar types bought in a dollar store to be better.
DO NOT use these bandaids on a child or an older person. I am not sure what the adhesive material is but once on your skin the only way to get it off is by Carefully peeling, piece by piece, as though you were taking a rubber covering off of something.
Yesterday, was not the first time I used one of this particular brand of "Band-Aids" from my box, but it was the first time skin came off with the adhesive. I had a cut I needed to keep clean while I worked with house plants. The bandaid got dirty but not wet. I had trouble getting it off. I have learned getting the bandaid wet really makes it worse. Thinking the last section would come off with no problem, I gentley pulled and a section of healthly skin came off with it.
I hate waste. These bandaids are dangerous in my opinion. Mine are going in the trash. Sending them back to Amazon would amount to nothing. Johnson and Johnson's quality has fallen so far off the grid by their outsourcing they no longer seem to care.
Bottom line--if you do use this Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandage be aware of potential problems with the adhesive strip.
