Stays on through showers & frequent washings

Review Questions: 
Age: Over 65 years old
Review Text: 
I like cycling, which often results in minor wounds. These bandages stay on for several days despite showers, frequent washing of hands, domestic chores and the like. They are great for me, and I urge J&J to continue offering them. Athletes and active people of all ages will use them when they find out about them.

Hurt my toe - left red - tender and sore

Review Questions: 
Age: 35 to 44 years old
Review Text: 
I used "tough strips" they say on the package this: "durable heavy duty fabric with super - stick adhesive" so imagine my surprise when the first band-aid did not stick at all on one side. So I got a second band aid and it stayed in place. The issue was 30 minutes later I tried to remove the band-aid but it was stuck on my toe. I pulled the first layer off but when I tried to remove the second layer it felt like it was super glued to my toe. I gently peeled it back and it left my big toe, sore, tender, sticky and it hurts. Basically I feel worse since applying this product, there should be a label or warning that says "use at your own risk."

Best bandage out there

Review Questions: 
Age: 55 to 64 years old
Review Text: 
My husband and I are both on blood thinners. That means we have to keep a wound covered until it is almost healed otherwise we risk losing the scab and starting all over. These band aids seal all four sides and keeps anything getting into the wound and the bandaid stays on even during a shower. Absolutely love these.

Ripped skin off my feet and ruined trip!

Review Questions: 
Age: 45 to 54 years old
Review Text: 
I went down to South Carolina for a vacation and tools new pair of shoes. I bought these band aids and put the on the area where the shoes would rub (side of big toe at bottom) and when I went to remove the band aids they ripped big chunks of my skin off on then bottoms of my feet, right where that ball is at bottom of big toe. One started to bleed bad, right through the new band aid I put on that my husband had to run 6 blocks to get while I sat and waited in the boardwalk. My feet hurt so bad I had to go back to the hotel and leave early. We didn't get to the beach, the aquarium, nothing! There is NO way that a band aid should rip skin off of you, NO WAY! Totally ridiculous!

Too wide

Review Questions: 
Age: 55 to 64 years old
Review Text: 
These 1" strips are too wide to use on the fingers, which is Mainly Where I NEED the Tough Strip. The other ones will stick just fine on your knee or elbow. The Tough Strip Needs to be Available in "3/4inch"

Ummmm never again

Review Questions: 
Age: 18 to 24 years old
Review Text: 
I had a sore on my upper bicep. So I used one of these band aids and it ripped 3 layers of skin off and it's completely pink where the adhesives was and hurts way worse than the sore that was there. So I guess if you wanna use these still (I won't) use with extreme caution.

Super tough, excellent for shop use

Review Questions: 
Age: 55 to 64 years old
Review Text: 
This is the official band-aid of our machine shop. Machinists working with sharp tools and metal chips all day go through many many band-aids. None we have used will stay put except this one. The Band-Aid Tough Strip Waterproof is tough as nails and will stay in place during repeated hand washings. We use go-jo and other hand cleaners plus oils, coolants and solvents and the Tough Strips stay on the job. There will be some adhesive residue most times but it is a small price to pay for a bandage that sticks on the job. Highly recommended,Thank you, Paul

"waterproof tough strips" not effective

Review Questions: 
Age: 35 to 44 years old
Review Text: 
My 12 year old son recently had stitches removed from his forearm. We were advised to keep the 1-inch area dry for one week. Not only were the "waterproof" tough strips NOT waterproof, they were not even water resistant. The bandage did not stick when exposed to moisture and the inner pad was wet and essentially ineffective after only 4 minutes of non-aggressive use. I will not use this product again!
