Jason spray plaster
Sometimes when I have a cut I find that i pick at plasters until they come off and anyway I hate the fact that they so quickly look really grubby. I had seen this stuff but in a different make and when I saw this one I decided to give it a go.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
This product will apparently provides an over skin coating which protect the wound all day or until washed off until washed off with soap and water. I would imagine it comes off with the soap and water because I cant imagine not washing my hands all day. It is also durable enough to apply over a plaster ; at first I was unsure as to why anyone would want to apply it over a plaster until I read that it will stop the plaster peeling off. This to me is a good idea because I hate that horrible dirty looking peel back thing plasters do.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The product is available in I believe two sizes, one being a large industrial type bottle and the other being the size I have which is 32.5 ml. all of the instructions are on the back of the bottle.
it is a spray type can with a pull off, push back on lid. When the spray pump is depressed then the spray plaster is dispensed in a quite thick steady flow. It is clear in colour, but easy to see where it is being sprayed so not a lot of chance of spraying it on other areas and it has no discernible smell.
USING THE PRODUCT...
It should be sprayed onto clean dry skin. Hold the can 10 to 20 cm from the skin and spray until the entire area is covered including a margin around the wound. Leave to dry and apply again if necessary. It should not be used on the face. The instructions don't say on what type of wounds it should be used but I think anything like a graze or cut which isn't too deep, as all it does is apply a protective layer.
It does dry quickly, in about a minute and as promised is easy to wash off with soap and water.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
I bought this online and I believe it cost me about £4.
I have used this on several occasions on small cuts. It doesn't sting at all which leads me to believe there is nothing anti septic in the product. When I apply it, it does dry very quickly but even after two coatings of the stuff, I cant feel a real protective covering. If I look closely I can see a very thin shiny film but I still remain unconvinced that this is protecting a wound from dirt.
It probably is a decent enough product but for me I will stick to plasters if I need to cover a wound.
Thanks for reading
