    Customer Reviews
    Nexcare™ Absolute Waterproof Tape is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 531.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from sticky, but not too sticky I was given this tape to review by 3M. I tried it for several different ways. It worked really well on my hand and arm, even after washing my hands a few times. It did not work so well on my feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Received this as a free sample and it truly works. The tape stays in place after getting wet which is exactly what you want from this.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good cushion and waterproof ability received sample for review ... not so good staying power. I actually wrapped a papercut to wash dishes and take a shower. it held up for dishes, was reasonably flexible... but by the time I was done in the shower, it started to come unglued. not sure how else this would be used, if only to hold gauze over a wound, once water gets on gauze, it most likely wouldn't hold up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable tape I used this on my heels for my boots. It did a decent job of staying in place. A little more could be added though to keep the rub down. This product was received for free in exchange for a review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It stays put! I was sent this product to review and it just happened to receive it at the same time that I cut my finger. I cook everyday and it was a lifesaver. I applied to my finger and the tape strong adhesive held it in place the whole day - even while washing my hands several time. I did take out at night to let the cut air out, but it was not necessary - it really conforms to the fingers and is very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised! I received this product free from 3M and it is waterproof as it says which is great for my hot flashes, the summer heat, beach and pool. Adhesive is not rough on my sensitive, aging skin so I definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sports I was sent this to sample at the perfect time. Worked great for my sons basketball scrapes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water resistant! I received this product free from 3M to sample. I used it to bandage my child’s hand after a fall. I placed some gauze on the area and used this waterproof tape to secure the gauze. I was sure to place the tape to cover all sides of the gauze. When washing hands, the tape stayed securely in place. It did not show any signs of water leaking through and the wound was able to heal without issue.
