    Customer Reviews
    Nexcare™ Absolute Waterproof Tape is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 546.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tape! The day after I received this tape, my daughter sprained her finger. The tape worked great to buddy tape two fingers together, and the waterproof feature made it last all day through multiple handwashings. Great tape! I received a free sample in exchange for this review, but I would buy it if I needed it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to the First Aid Kit This is a good product and really comes in handy for first aid applications. Sometimes a simple bandage isn't enough, so gauze and waterproof tape come in handy. This tape is perfect for those times. It is waterproof, so it will stay on better during those moments where you hands may get damp/wet, which is everyday. This tape will adhere during exercising, bathing, household and other personal care chores. This product is flexible, as well. It moves with you and stays with you throughout your daily activities. I received the Nexcare Absolute Waterproof Tape for free in exchange for my feedback.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tape Suddenly need antibiotics for 6 to 8 weeks and used this to seal my PICC line in saran wrap and press and seal. It kept the water out, all be it i used probably too much tape. the only thing i could wish for is the tape was wider than 1 inch so i could feel more comfortable and probably not use as much

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised 3M provided this tape for me to try and I put it to work right away as a reinforcement for my husband's blood sugar monitor. His sensor falls off during heavy workouts and he needed a good waterproof tape that he could still use the monitor with, but kept it on through workout and shower. This tape did exactly what we needed it to do. He could scan his sensor through the tape, and it held the sensor perfectly for days on end. Unfortunately, after the first day the edges of the tape lift up slightly and collect shirt fuzz and continue to peel. It's not good for long term use, but for a day at least, it's the perfect solution.
