    Nexcare™ Absolute Waterproof Tape is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 555.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tattoo cover-ups!!! I am currently enrolled in college for a career in healthcare and have some text tattooed on the top of my hands. This tape works the best compared to some of the other more expensive methods and products online. I can find this at any Walmart so I don't have to order it online. For my healthcare program, I have to constantly wash my hands so this tape is amazing. I have to make sure my hands before applying in order for it to stick correctly. Also, when I apply the tape, I have to make sure that I'm not putting tension on it or else it will come off. I then have to press and rub pretty firmly to make sure that I get a good stick. I literally have to try to remove it at the end of the day with effort. I had forgotten about it being on a couple of times and the tape stuck well into the next day with no problems. However, if I have any sweat on my hands, the tape will just come off within a short time. If I apply it correctly, it will stay on after I sweat just as advertised. The tape stretches well with my movements and stays on strong after I wash my hands. The instructors were so impressed with the results, they started to list it as a solution in the program rule books for anyone with visible tattoos. Thank you so much Nexcare!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't stick! Total waste of money! Hubby had surgery on his neck and was told to keep it dry for 1 week. We tried Nexcare Paper tape first and it was terrible.... hardly stuck to the gauze and definitely not his skin. This new tape - the beige waterproof tape, was next and did NOT hold against his skin at all, no matter what we did - cleaning skin good, drying skin, not damp skin, nothing worked...it just keeps lifting. It holds on great to the gauze pad but definitely NOT his skin. Don't understand how so many like these products!! Waste of money 2 times! I actually put regular band-aids over your tape to hold it onto his neck!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. I bought this tape to hold a 4×4 gauze in place to cover a breast cancer wound. This tape is ABSOLUTELY NOT waterproof and the tap does NOT stick to dry skin at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All day use It took me a while to use this product but when I cut my finger, I had this on hand. It made made sure my wound stood dry through multiple hand washes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is Absolutely Waterproof! We use this regularly and have for more than ten years. My daughter is an amputee who has numerous infections in her remaining foot. We use plastic bags taped with Nexcare Waterproof tape to protect her foot during showering. I keep rolls of it on hand all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tape Ever I paddle and am a very enthusiastic one to boot, so when my fingers got blisters because I don't have any cushioning I tried this tape. It has some sticky to it, my fingers don't blister, and it is waterproof. A lot of my teammates borrow or have gone out and bought this tape because it is so good. Just wish you could buy it by the case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and sticky but not painful! It took me a moment to write my review on my free Nexcare waterproof tape because I didn't need it. Unfortunately my luck had changed and I was grateful to have this in my first aid kit! I cut myself and I used this tape and it was waterproof! I hate when tape is supposed to be then it gets wet when I wash my hands or shower and I'm left with a wet bandage that either gets my skin all pruny or I have to take it off and expose my wound. This worked so nicely and it wasn't painful to take off.
