OK

i definitely prefer fabric bandaids as they last longer and do not lose there stick. you can wash the dishes and swim with them and they won't fall off, with plastic bandaids you can't do that.
made by a well liked and trusted brand name, lets the sore breath, comfortable, you can get these anywhere.
when your skin gets wet the bandaids fall off and you need to replace them, even just sweating they lose there stick. so if you want to shower or swim you will need to take it off before hand and put a new one on after unlike fabric bandaids.


Bad

Although I like this brand, I'm not that keen on this plastic type of bandaid. Once it is wet it it completely useless, making it difficult if you are a mum, where your hands are quite often wet in the washing machine, cleaning etc. I much prefer the fabric type, they seem to stick better. These are ok for a quick fix, but wouldn't recommend them for a day long solution. They also don't allow the skin to breath, I find my skin becomes quite wrinkly under the bandaid if it's on for a few hours.
Cheap, Readily Available
Once they're wet, they fall off

OK

Band-Aid is an old and trusted brand. One I know I grew up with. The plastic strips though are completely a waste of time. Especially now a days where there is stuff (even in the Band-Aid brand) that sticks and stays better to injuries. The plastic strips fall off as soon as they get wet cos the sticky no longer sticks. With 2 active little boys this means the plastic strips last about 10 minutes, if Im lucky. personally I like to fork out a little extra now and have the reliability of the material strips.
easily found - can be bought in supermarket, old, reliable brand name
cost, as soon as they are wet they fall off

Good

i started buying these bandaids a few months ago as i always brought the home brands but they never seemed to stick in the difficult areas like your feet or hands,and having a little one you need good sticking bandaids,so i gave these a go,they work a treat i just wish i had found out about them ages ago and you dont mind paying that little bit extra if they are going to work
they work like any other bandaid would but are great to use on hand ares as they seem to be a tougher bandaid
they are not the cheapest bandaid on the market compared to sone others available


Good

Band-Aid Plastic Strips are my most trusted brand of band-aids, or should i say 'plastic strips'. The brand is that well known, that just about everyone in know calls them Band-Aids, not plastic strips or plasters, so that says something for the company. They are a bit expensive, but they stay on, where as cheaper ones fall off much quicker!
They stick on well! They are a well known brand that you can trust.
They do cost more, and i would like to see bandaids available in different shades, as we dont all have that colour skin, but that's all bandaids in general!


Excellent

A great quality product that speaks for itself, it works! A Band Aid that is comfortable and heals wounds, also it isn't too obvious.
I always thought that all bandage strips were the same, but one day I had one good quality Band aid brand and one other brand, and I used both to cover a large wound, the better Band Aid started to heal much faster and I noticed my skin didn't sweat under it. I also had to replace the other one as it fell off when I got it wet.
Can be a bit more expensive, but if you have to replace the other ones as they fall off, then it actually works out cheaper.


Excellent

pretty good compare with other type of strips. I particularly like it due to the less allergic factor to my skin. I've been used this type for quite some time.
1. I like its colour, so it's not abvious when you have it on.
2.I feel this plastic strips works better than the elastic cloth type after touching water (say there is a cut on your finger and you have to water your hand). the cloth type will stay wet for a longer periond and easy loose off afterwards, this plastic type doesn't suck in much water and therefore works better for me.
3.The one particular thing I like about it is this Band-Aid plastick strips is the only type my skin not allergic too. when I use the elastic cloth type of Band-aid, my skin get itchy and allergic to it after have it on for more than 2 hours.
less flexible compare with the elastic cloth type. particularly if you use it around joint of the finger. it doesn't provide much room to the joint to move if you apply it tight, but if you leave some room arount the join for easy movement, the plastic strip will be too loose and fall off.


Good

The bandages allow my skin to breathe, enabling my cuts to heal faster. Unlike waterproof bandages on the market, BAND Aid plastic strips will not stick to your skin once it is wet and you will have to change the bandaid.
Trusted brand. Love the flesh colour of the bandage.
Loses its stickiness once it gets wet and when removed, leaves behind some residue on your skin that you got to scratch off.

Excellent

They stick really well, but not so well that they pull hairs out when you remove them. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so they can be used on awkward spots like between the thumb and forefinger.
They help my children psychologically too, after they have had a nick that causes tears. They like to see a band aid on the wound, it helps to comfort them.
Band Aid Plastic Stips are great for covering a small wound to keep dirt and germs out.
They come in either pink or patterned, which is too visible on a dark skin.

Excellent

I love everything about Band-Aids, especially the Tough Strip ones. I only wish that they didn't fall off when I get sweaty palms, because that's really annoying. Band-Ais is the only brand I will use noe, I'm suspicious of all the other brands!
Band-Aid is the only bandage brand my family and I will use! It's classic and never fails.
It usually falls off if you have sweaty palm, which is annoying. It can be more expensive than the other brands, but I'm okay with that because it's the best quiality. The 'heals while wearing' ad thing isn't true.


Excellent

My family have always bought this brand of band aids, and especially the smaller ones in the colourful prints as they are long lasting and do not hurt to pull them off! They may be more expensive, but they are definitely worth it!
It's an original and renowned brand, very reliable, skin coloured so it is easy to hide, sticks really well and doesn't hurt to take off, it doesn't leave a sticky residue on your skin after you take it off, it can be used in water and it doesn't weaken the bond, very long wearing
More expensive than the generic brands of band aids


Excellent

every time i have a wound or scratch i use band aid to cover my wound and to protect from the dirt. it is also very useful to the kids when they have a wound for they could not easily take off the band aid and it will be easy to cure the wound for it will et less infection when it is covered by a band aid.
no worry to cover the wound, it is a breathable band aid to protect the wounds to breath.can also wet the portion with the band aid for it is a long lasting adhesive to stick the bandages on.


Excellent

This product is great! I own it and use it whenever there's a cut in the family. It's great because it heals the cuts twice as fast, other than some other band-aids. I recommend you buying this brand. It is much longer lasting than others.
Doesn't come off in water and sticks much longer than other Band-Aid brands.
Nothing at all.


Good

It is extremely irritating to be attempting to open a sticky plaster and having to rip open the paper only to find that the plaster rips as well! This does not happen with Band Aids. They have a convienient and quick pull tag and are easy to get to without having to touch them a lot and defeat the purpose of hygiene. No problems in the shower or getting them wet and they don't leave a sticky residue on the skin.
More durable and long wearing than the cheaper alternatives. The individual packagings seem a lot more hygenic and easier to open.
They are a little more expensive, but given the quality it is not a big consideration in buying them.

Good

These are one of the few brand of sticky bandages that I buy. And unlike some of the cheaper brands which just fall off very quickly, especially when they get wet, these do adhere well and last a long time. They protect the wound from infection by being a barrier from anything outside getting into the wound and the little holes allow the wound to breathe. I have not had any issues with this brand and type and believe that they are one of the best on the market at this time so I can easily recomend buying this brand.
Sticks well sometimes too well, water resitant and long lasting
A bit more pricey than oth brands.

Excellent

I find that with many scratches you really dont need a band aid at all. Apply some antiseptic if you really want to but let it heal naturally - without getting soggy due to cheap bandaids. If you really need to put on a band aid (such as deeper wounds) then this brand is the best. Pay the extra money and get a superior product.
Trusted name - we call these 'band-aids' not 'plastic strips' (as stated on no frills packages) for a reason. They stick really well and unlike some cheaper brands they dont come off easily when wet, for example in the shower. They also allow the skin or wound to breathe easily. Some cheap brands dont allow the wound to heal properly (it goes all gooey and worse than before) and so even if they were free I wouldnt use them.
This product is expensive when compared to the no frills brand or home brand, but you do get a good quality product. You get what you pay for.


Good

Overall, I am quite happy with this product. Iv'e never tried the no frills brand so I wouldn't be able to compare them. But wih the experience iv'e had with them, i havn't had any troubles.
They stick to you really well, and the little holes on them allows your wound to heal faster.
After it's been on you for a day or more, and you take it off, the wound and skin around it wehre the band-aid was smells bad and you have to wash it a few times with alot of soap to get rid of the smell.


Excellent

These are the only brand of band-aids that i buy. They adhere well, unlike some of the cheaper brands which just fall off especially when they get all wet. It protects the wound from infection and the little holes still allow the wound to breathe. I've not had any issues with these and reckon they are the best in the market so i will keep buying this brand.
Sticks really well, water resistant, long lasting
Has that weird smell, but all bandaids do. A bit more pricey than other brands, but that's ok because these work better and a pack of 100 will last for ages since bandaids aren't something you use all the time anyway.


Good

It may seem like a small thing, but a good Band-Aid means quite a difference when you're using them. These are an old design, and they're still used for a good reason. They stick really well, and since they breath well, the skin underneath doesn't get so wet that it won't heal anyway. They last a lot longer than the newer designs, which look pretty but usually don't breath, never stick if your skin's even slightly damp, and tend to come off fairly quickly.
Last a long time, breath well and stick well.
No problems with these.
