Asda Smartprice Washproof Plasters
Disadvantages: Do not last long, Not very waterproof
I am the type of person that always has to have a box of plasters in the house, and have some plasters stored in my bag for emergencies. But one of the main reasons for carrying plasters around with me in my purse, is due to my job, having to go through many files and pile and piles of paper work daily, means I frequently get paper cuts. As you may know paper cuts can be quite painful, plus I am little weakling; so paper cuts for me, are quite agonising!
I have found that recently, the expenses during my supermarket grocery shopping has significantly risen. One factors being that prices have generally gone quite high and continually do so. So this has made me have to rethink my shopping list, cutting some things off completely and opt for for cheaper brands.
This is why I had to go and get the Asda Smartprice Washproof Plasters instead of buying more expensive brands of plasters. I have in the past tried a few different types of items from the Smart price range, and have been pleasantly surprised with a few of my choices, hence for the motivation to opt for the Smart price Plasters.
BASIC PRODUCT INFORMATION
A pack of Smartprice Washproof Plasters contain 40 plasters, and all come in one size.
A very low priced brand of plasters, costing only 40p. This is another factors that attracted me to this brand of plasters, as every penny helps!
The packaging is very basic, which is what I have come to expect with Asda Smartprice range. The plasters come in small sized cardboard box that is has a white coloured top half, and a green coloured lower half. It has a simple green cross on the front as well as the item name.
Packaging is easy to open, as it pretty much the same as many other similar sized brand of plasters that come in small boxes.
PUT TO THE TEST
The plasters themselves very straightforward and simple to use. All I needed to do is remove the outer packaging, and peal the small paper like protectors from the plasters.
Once removed, small very thin pads were visible on the plasters. The plasters were placed on my paper cut, sticky side down. I applied gentle pressure to the plasters to ensure that they were securely fastened. I found they initially stayed on my finger quite securely and was able to more by fingers about without too much restriction.
However, unfortunately after only say about 20 minutes the plasters started to lose its stickiness and on some occasions found the plasters hanging of my finger.
As I use my hands and fingers quite a lot during my work, I observed that the plasters are just not made for busy hands like mine.
One of the reasons for purchasing this, was for the waterproof aspect of the plasters. But I was again disappointed with the longevity of the plasters, as with only a little bit of water (quick rinse of the hands) the plasters began to peel off, and it was not long before it would hang off my fingers.
I conclude that these plasters are just not personally for me, and would not recommend them. I would say that they are only use able for a short period of time for very minor cuts. The only highlight is the price, so i guess in this occasion I got what I paid for!
