    Customer Reviews
    Nexcare™ Flexible Clear First Aid Tape is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for mic headsets! I am involved in community theater and have worn a small headset microphone for a few productions. I have oily skin and this is the only product that I have found that adheres well to my face. Even my liberal application doesn't really show from the audience and it keeps my microphone confidently secured!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully in the theatre! I am a stage manager and I use this tape to tape down the microphones on actors and to help keep bandages in odd places down. The tape works well and sticks, even when the actors are sweaty from the stage lights and all their stage make-up. And the tape is clear, so the audience can't see it, whether it's holding a mic in place or a band-aid!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gummy lines last for days When the pharmacy did not have my usual clear tape for a daily patch I wear, I tried your product. The Nexcare flexible clear tape in a dispenser looked easy to use. And it is. However, later in the day it was not sticking as well as my usual brand. Then a couple of days later I was wondering what the blackish lines on my thigh were. Then I realized - even after 3-4 days and as many showers, everywhere I've taped a patch, the gummy black lines are still there! So figure this out - the tape doesn't stick as well, but the sticky residue last forever.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flexible Clear Tape Dispenser Worthless. The 3M Nexcare Flexible Clear tape is a good product. However, if you pay the extra price for the convenience of the dispenser, you are wasting your money. The cutter on this is just about worthless, and you end up wasting as much tape as you use. Since you have to use scissors to cut off what you pull from this dispenser, you might as well just get the roll, and get more tape for your money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This tape stays flexible and in place. My daughter suffers from chronic back pain and has to use madicated patches on her back, but they would never stay in place for the day. We started using the Nexcare Flexible Clear tape on the corners of the patch and the patch now stays in place for the entire school day. This way we know that she is getting all the medication that she is suppose to be getting to improve her condition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tape to help keep wounds covered! This is the best tape I've ever used to keep my wounds covered and clean. With this tape, the bandages do NOT come off until I am ready to take them off myself! GREAT STUFF!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making a difference in patient care and comfort I work in the healthcare industry where there are lots of patients with frail skin. I recently had to switch tapes for a particular patient. I chose your Nexcare Clear Flexible Tape and it has been such a success! The patient's dressing stays intact, and so does his skin! Thank you!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it! I use this tape at home for first aid needs and at work to keep wireless microphones in place without tearing up the skin. I work at a church and we keep this tape in stock because it is flexible, discrete and holds well. My skin is very sensitive and I sometimes have issue with surgical tape. This one does not irritate my skin regardless of what area of my body I use it.
