Tesco Childrens Bug Plasters
Advantages: Cheap but effective
One product I always have in my house, my desk drawer at work and even in my handbag are plasters. Whether they are for me or someone else I find them a handy little item to have. I have a wide stash at home, I end up buying a box if they are on offer or thinking I have run out and actually I still have three boxes stashed away! I'm not accident prone whatsoever but plasters are one of those products that I can't live without and I think most people would agree that they are incredibly useful and of course effective.
Because of me being me I have separate plasters for my daughter, nieces, nephews and very young cousins as I like to think that should they need to have a plaster that it should be fun, colourful and take their minds off what they have just done to themselves be it self inflicted or caused by rough play. The current kid friendly plaster range in my house has been limited to the Tesco Children's Bug Plasters as funnily enough my nephews are a lot rougher than my nieces so the more girly variety are still in plentiful supply.
The Tesco Children's Bug Plasters come in a slender cardboard box featuring an image of the plasters itself together with a cartoon type image of a purple/lilac butterfly as well as the Tesco logo. As for being brand as 'Bug Plasters' they are actually quite girly especially the packaging. On the back of the box as you would expect is the information about the plasters as well as contact information for Tesco. The plasters come in two sizes which is stated on the back of the pack and how many of each you get. You get 30 plasters in each box which I think is a decent amount especially when they are specifically aimed at children.
I must admit that whilst currently writing my review I am wearing my second Bug plaster! A few days ago I unfortunately hurt my knuckle which needed a plaster simply because when you spend a lot of time around horses you don't want to get any dust or dirt in your cut and at the time I only had these Bug Plasters in my bag. Yes, it looks a bit odd on a near 30 something woman but it does the job for me and I haven't got around to changing it to a more adult plaster as whenever I come to change it these are the nearest plaster to me at the yard. So instead of reviewing them on how suitable they are for kids this review will be based around my own experience!
The plasters come packaged as all plasters do, enclosed in a little paper packet which is easily teared off at the top or side. The plaster as the two paper tabs which just pull apart once you have put the plaster on the required area. Once the tabs are pulled you can then apply the plaster easily until secure in place. The Bug Plasters are clear to look at with cute little images of butterflies, ladybirds, bees, caterpillars and flowers. The plasters do look quite sweet and it is nice that they are transparent albeit with the white padded centre. Oddly they don't look overly kiddy so I don't feel particularly stupid wearing it!
Now the plasters have had to endure mucking out horses, walking the dog, bathing my daughter, riding horses amongst all my other tasks such as cleaning etc. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much simply because I've always stuck to named brand plasters as I have found in the past cheaper plasters tend to be quite rubbish and not worth the money you pay so I was a bit hesitant but I have to say these really have impressed me! Although I'm now on my second plaster I only changed it as I had, had a shower and took the plaster off so my cut/scrape was cleaned as the first plaster was going strong!
Although the plaster isn't has clean and the edges have become unstuck which may be because the plaster is around the knuckle so I wasn't expect the whole plaster to be stuck down on a joint. Apart from that the plaster is still keeping my cut protected which at the end of the day is all that I want. The plaster is still where I put it, it hasn't slipped or moved and I found the first plaster easy to come off without any hassle, it comes off the skin easily and doesn't take the skin with it either! For me, these are great little plasters but I will make sure I have more adult looking plasters in my bag for future use but for kids these are ideal - definitely tough and durable!
Overall, a great pack of plasters from Tesco complete with sweet little bug images. I can't find a fault with them as they do the job that they are made for! Definitely a recommend from me and they will be re-purchased when the box is empty. 5 stars!
