Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well My husband uses tape often on his toes which can be tricky, but this tape holds up well and does the job. Gentle yet firm. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I've used this product for over 25 years I have used Nexcare paper tape for over 25 years. Unfortunately I had to have an ostomy way back then. This is the product the nurse had me start using for my appliance and I have used it ever since. The tape tears easily off the roll. Has unbelievable sticking power. It has stayed attached to my body through days of showering and physical work. I have never had a bad reaction to the tape. Whenever my husband needs a fix on his skin I tell him to use this tape because of it's durability. I have seen it used in hospitals often. There is just not one negative thing I could think of to say. It's become a part of my body actually:) Would recommend it to anyone and everyone. September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape is a Great Tape! Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape was perfect for me! It stayed on and it didn't irritate my skin. I had used another type & brand of tape for my injury on my achilles tendon area and my skin was so itchy and irritated with that tape. I was happy that I tried Nexcare Gentle Paper First Aid Tape and another nice surprise was that it came in the tan color...Thank you! July 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quite Gentle - Too gentle My dad has to used paper tape, with his thin skin. This tape is gentle but I think the sticking power could be just a little bit more. February 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does Not Tear Skin I have the most sensitive skin and need to have blood testing at least once a month. This is the greatest tape for anyone needing to use tape on their skin a lot. No redness and no tearing. I keep this tape on hand. February 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by tape works great I recently needed to change a bandage daily for a couple of weeks after surgery but I am unable to use a lot of different tape. I used this and had no problems at all. It held very well with the gauze pads I used and I had no problem with being allergic to it February 8, 2013
