Nicorette 'main site' are filtering customers review
So I made a review on their main website and was rejected 'as per their guidelines' we cannot or not allowed to say something bad about their products.
These patches gave me bad skin irritations and my skin is still red and feels like burning up to now. First they don't stick on very well no matter how I tried to clean the skin and dry it, once you moved it starts to come off. I've been on nicabate for 3 months and never had a problem with regards to irritation, I just wanted to try something else because nicabate is sort working but once you t...

Waste of time and money
Honestly cravings were like i had no patch on at all.. it slides off with sweat after an hour, has a bad reaction with most people's skin, bubbles up and leaves skin red and irritated.. fix it nicorette at $50 its highway robbery!!
Purchased in February 2020 at Chemist King for $49.95.
Impressed but the application and side effects need to be addressed.
Take it from a decades long smoker these patches work for those that have been hooked on smoking.
My experience over the past few of weeks with the patches is that they are hard to apply to your skin as they lift all the time. The material used in the gum for the patch causes large skin welts and skin irritation, these are not side effects you should have to experiencing while giving up smoking with the Australian Government under encouragement to give up smoking, certifies this product to be on the PBS.

Know better, choose better.
I'm almost convinced there is a conspiracy behind making these patches unstickable so consumers will buy more. This product does not support you to quit smoking if the product doesn't do what it says on the packet. Don't try nicabate either, it's just as bad.

Great product that actually works
This is Great product!
Helped me quit smoking easy.
I smoked 25-30 cigarettes a day for 30 years.
This is my 3rd month and I am doing great no more cravings at all.
Would recommend it to everyone
Worst Anti smoking patch ever.
I tried this preperation to quit smoking, I thought I would get these as they are advertised and they will work well, I have used other patches ( that actually worked) recently so I knew what too expect, this are by far the most useless patch ever, I was doing a long drive for 6 hours with children so i didnt want to smoke and I honestly had cravings the entire way, If anything this patches made my cravings worse, they were by far the strongest Cravings I have ever had.
I went and brought QUIX X step 1 patches, And i have only had 2 ciggarettes (Down From 20-30 a day)
I wouldnt recommend nicorette patches to anyone
I am writing this review after my third time at quitting smoking- today is day 4 of my 3rd attempt. Firstly, let me say that I understand that patches alone aren't going to stop anyone smoking if they truly don't want to stop- having said that, patches are proven to help with yukky withdrawal symptoms so I think they do have a place in quitting. For me anyways!
What prompted me to write this review was that, once again, I purchased Nicorette because they are cheaper and once again was disappointed! When I say once again, I mean I have bought...these 3 times in about a 6 year span. The patch won't stick!!!- on dry skin, on hairless skin, on skin that doesn't stretch/move a lot, on clean skin, on any skin- I followed ALL directions and had to resort to (a) applying a new patch- this is a worry as I'm not sure of the dosage throughout the day (b) buying some medical grade sticky tape that resembles Contact- this is difficult to apply as its so thin and it is an extra cost for me. My theory is that the Nicorette people may think they're selling a product that may not get them repeat business so they sell below par patches resulting in consumers having to buy more! Seriously- band aids stick better than these stupid patches. When my week runs out I'm buying Nicabate- have used that brand once before and they were fantasticly sticky. Helped somewhat with cravings. Patch won't stick, needed extra adhesive at extra cost to me.
I couldn't use this prodcut for long as it drove me mad itching and burning. Also it is thick and you can see it through clothing. It did calm cravings a little bit. It also left my skin red raw where it had been sitting. I would not purchase again but will try the clear patch next time. It is probably fine for those with less sensitive skin. I wish they would also make the patches a little smaller and more flexible/comfortable to wear.
It calmed cravings somewhat.
The patch itched my skin, was hot to wear and visible through clothing.
Questions & Answers
Why are these not helping cravings and why do they bubble up on the skin, create sweat , slide off and cause red, irritated skin? I want my money back
Any side effects?
Nope no sode effects, Just stronger cravings than ever before.. Years later I still remember how bad the cravings were with this patch.
