To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Once moved/slightly removed it will not stick and you will need to replace it very quickly. It usually takes a coupe of tries/bandage to get the desired fit. However, once it sits comfortably it his highly effective.
I actually don’t use these bandaids for my heels (anymore), though they worked great when I had to cover a blister. I use these for blemishes on my face. I clean my skin at night, pat dry, then apply one of these over the forming/offending area. Moisturize around the bandaid, go to bed, and sleep with the bandaid on the acne spot.
When I wake up, 9/10 times, the bandaid has absorbed the contents of the blemish, leaving my skin flat (albeit a little dry).
My skin has loved this. I don’t have to pop blemishes anymore, which speeds up the healing process immensely, and reduces risk of introducing bacteria to the area. Just don’t put any acne cream on under the bandaid prior to application—you’ll irritate the heck out of your skin. (My skin is nowhere near “sensitive,” and I made this mistake... the results looked similar to a chemical burn.)
Best product ever if you've ever encountered cellulitis in your life you'd know that it is not easy to get rid of nor is going to the hospital to have it removed by a professional. Ouch. This little bandaid is like a surgeon , $275-$400 saved in hospital bills , and the pain and 6 hours you'd spend in the ER all in one bandaid. TRUST MEA! put one on and leave it till you see a white pocket form in elastic bandage and when you remove it your cellulitis will have surfaced and healed all by its self . amazed by my secret little discovery.
We purchased this product to keep in a small first aid kit in our RV and our backpacks when hiking. This past weekend I cut the tip of my finger with a knife while in our RV. I immediately pulled out the hydro seal bandage and applied to the tip of my finger which was bleeding constantly. I ensured I had a good, tight seal and it worked better than any bandaid I've ever used. I had to leave it on my finger for two days just to ensure my skin had sealed a bit and wasn't bleeding but that was due to the cut not the bandage. I'm buying another pack of these to keep on hand.
These were useless. I always have trouble with blisters on my heels when I travel because I walk for hours on end (sometimes 13 hrs a day) so I need reliable aids. These didn't take 13 hours to start rubbing off and falling apart. After a short time my shoes rubbed right through them! It created a hole in the bangage and just kept right on scrapin' ma' skin off! That was on my right foot; on my left, it just came clean off. It only worked (and only for cushion) once I put a nexcare waterproof bandaid over it. I shouldn't have to reinforce my blister bandaid with another brand's bandaid. Fail---at least for my needs. Of your needs are minimal, may be worth a try, otherwise, try something else first.
Followed the directions carefully- cleaned and dried the area I wanted to apply these to. They fell off of both ankles before an hour had passed, just walking around the house barefoot (no socks or shoes rubbing or pulling on them at all.) Very disappointed, and expected much from a Band-Aid brand product.
I saw these blister covers in a 'must-have for travel' article by Buzzfeed. We visited family in Europe and I knew there was going to be lots of walking. After my heel got torn up from a 10 minute walk in dressy shoes on a special night out, I put one of these on the blister and followed the directions on the box that said not to touch it until it started to fall off. It was a small but painful blister and after I put one of these pads on I completely forgot about it until 3 days later when it started to fall off. I was SHOCKED at the amount of gross junk it pulled out of such a small blister, I was mildly disgusted. I was surprised that I walked almost 20 miles for the 3 days I had this thing on and never felt a thing. It healed amazingly quick and will always keep these on hand.
I needed a bandaid to cover a skin biopsy site near my wrist that had stitches on it. These worked great and stayed on for days despite being on a part of my wrist that moves a lot (plus gets wet from all my hand washing). I vaseline over the biopsy site as recommended by my doctor and then this bandage. The sites were able to heal with minimal to no scabbing (doctor said to try to keep them moist so they wouldn't scab as scab= more scarring). TO change I just lightly lift up an edge and then run under indirect warm water for a few seconds to get the adhesive loose. I am now getting more just to have some on hand as these seem more durable and less noticeable than regular bandaids... Would imagine they would work well on the heels as well although I have not used them for this purpose- I have only used the compeed brand heel bandaids that work extremely well but are priceier.
