Introducing BAND-AID ® Brand Liquid Bandage, the only BAND-AID ® product that is applied as a liquid and quickly dries to form a clear and flexible seal over the wound to stop minor bleeding.
This no-sting liquid bandage creates the ideal environment for wounds to heal. It keeps out water, dirt and germs and helps prevent infection.
• 1 bottle of liquid
• 5 activator swab sticks
OK, to cut it to the core, this is a brilliant product with an amazing array of uses. 4 drops of the liquid onto one applicator/activator, because it's a 2-part compound, mixed on the stick just prior to application, and you are set. -wipe wipe- and you're done, throw the stick away.
However, for only 5 portions, the price I paid at $9.95, made these 5 alternate 'sticky plasters' a bit expensive. If there was room in the price to slide a few more of the sticks into the packet, it would be a much better buy. As steep as the price is, this is still a great product, no arguments.
My son wasn't paying attention and got his finger caught in the doorjamb. Some broken skin and a bit of blood, and one stickyplaster later he was on his way... however water and stickies don't agree... so when it was time for plaster to come off for hand-washing, it was replaced by this product... wonderful and highly effective.
Simply grab on of the little pouches and extract the applicator/activator... a small plastic stick with a tiny foam pad attached to one end. -drip drip drip drip- from the bottle, and wait 10 seconds. Gently swiped over the cut and damaged areas of the little man's injury and, grizzle- and squawk-free moments late and his finger was now water-proof again.
That one application lasted 18 hand washes, a shower and 3 days of wear and tear before a reapplication was required. It has been just over a week now, the wound has healed rapidly, free from infection of water-damage, and is mostly pain-free too. It has even got a soft scab, meaning reduced tissue damage and scarring.
Overall, this is a product who's time has well and truely arrived. Even at this price, it would be worth having a box in the first-aid kit or cupboard at home. It will come in handy when you most need it and nothing else will do the job.
