Advantages Water Resistant, Very Sticky, Comfortable, Stays put until removed
|Value for Money|
I decided it was time to clear out the first aid box at home, and thought it was time to re-new some products and to get rid of old one's. My parents tend to buy cheap plaster strips from the £1 shop, how-ever I hate the plaster they sell here as it doesn't stick and falls off within about an hour. I prefer buying well known, trusted brands such as Elastoplast and when I was in my local boots store I picked up a box of 40 water resistant plasters. These were perfect as there was a range of 4 different sized plasters in the box.~ PACKAGING ~
~ PRICE/AVALAIBILITY ~
I purchased these from my local Boots store for £2.39 which I don't think is too bad value. You can also buy these from local supermarkets, Superdrug and pharmacies; how-ever prices may vary.
~ USING THE PLASTER ~
My boyfriend recently got something stuck in his finger after buying some coral and live rock from a local seller. We managed to pull a small piece of what looked like coral/rock from his fingers using a pair of clean tweezers. We ensured that the wound was clean and dry before applying the plaster. The plaster was easily removed form its packaging and it was easy to apply to the finger. The plaster was stuck on firmly, and wasn't too tight around the finger. He went to work and the plaster stayed on his finger all day, even after washing his hands a few times throughout the day. The plaster was removed after work to let some air get to the wound.
~ OVERALL OPINION ~
I personally only tend to buy Elastoplast plasters, as I find these stick much better and are along lasting, that cheaper brands such as plasters from my local £1 shop, where the plasters tend to fall off within about an hour. In terms of value I don't think the plasters are bad value as you do get 40 plaster strips in the box, in a range of different sizes. As they can be kept in the box, this makes them really handy when me and my boyfriend go out on bike rides as we have a small first aid kit and always take a box of these plaster with us just in case. I highly recommend these plasters to others and give them 5 shiny stars.
