    Customer Reviews
    Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Tape is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 408.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, no more red welts For years I have been in search of the perfect tape to use when I need to cover a wound with gauze. I have found other 3M/Nexcare products to be best at keeping my reactions to a minimum, but still end up with red welts when the tape is removed. When I went to the store to get more tape recently, I couldn't find my usual choice, but then happened to see the "sensitive skin" statement on this product. I figured, well can't hurt to try to see if it works as well as it states. It works perfectly. I can readjust the tape and it continues to stick to my skin, and when I'm ready to remove it after hours on my skin, it leaves no trace of being on my skin...no red welt marks!! Thank you, finally!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son is special needs and has sensitive skin.... My son is special needs and has something called sensory processing disorder so lots of things irritate his skin or are uncomfortable, so things such as bandaids and medical tape irritate him and his skin. However, not but a few weeks ago he fell outside and got a pretty cut that was much to large for a bandaid so we used gauze and this skin sensitive tape and we had no problems at all. Not the usual rash afterwards, or the occassional broken skin from the tape. It peeled off nicely and was an easy clean up with no irritation! I was so pleased that my son left it on and had no complaints.....I will be buying some more of these for sure!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I found this tape! I had emergency surgery and need to keep the wound covered for a while now while healing. The hospital sent me home with tape that was horrible. It stuck to my skin like glue, hurt my skin when wearing it and was unbearable to remove and left me with bruise looking marks on my skin. So, I searched the internet for a tape that would not hurt and I came across this tape. I ran out to Target and picked it up. What a difference!!! This tape is so comfortable and it holds perfectly. I recommend this tape to anyone that needs to wear a gauze/bandage post-op as it makes a huge difference. It is really great tape!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non Irritant. Easy to remove. Stays in place Because of my skin being very sensitive to adhesives, I had to find a alternate product. The 3M Nexcare tape for sensitive skin has really made a difference. The "sticky" from other products would irritate my skin to the point where it would burn and actually peel off with the bandage. I do not have that issue with this product. I am able to use the tape without ANY irritation and it is very easy to remove with out cause any pain or pulling. I love this product. Certainly one that I keep around for me and use it for my kids. If you have not tried I recommend that you do. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic- no missing arm hair I was having blood work taken multiple times a week during my pregnancy and hospital stay. They always used the most awful tape to hold to cotton on afterwards. It would strip my hair off my arm and leave a weird residue for days. It looks like I had dirt lines on my arm! So I went looking for an alternative for the nurses to use, and j found this product. They thought it was a little strange when I asked them to use tape I had brought in myself but I was more than thrilled with the performance of it. No pain, no more lines of sticky residue left behind, no more missing arm hair. I loved it so much I also took it to the hospital when I gave birth and the nurses used it on my IV placement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true life saver! I had cataract surgery and my doctor gave me a foll of this tape to keep my eye patch on for 24 hours. I was very worried about this since every tape that I have used and every tape that has been used on me in my 63 years has broken me put, pulled my skin off and whelped up in itchy patches that spread out of the sight of the tape or bandage. I really did not want any of this on my face; however, my doctor assured me this tape was different and it truly is. I can wear this tape for even more than 24 hours without any damage. I am amazed! Thank you for making a product this old lady can use safely!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nexcare Sensitive Skin tape I received this sample of Nexcare Sensitive Skin tape from you in the mail. It came just in the nick of time! I had pinched nerve surgery in my left upper elbow area. The skin on the inside of the elbow is very sensitive and I had tried other brands of tape in the past and there was no comparison. The other tapes ripped and hurt my skin. Your sensitive skin tape was great! It was very gentle on my skin and I didn't have any pain removing it. It also was able to be placed back on the skin and I forgot that I had it on! I highly recommend your product and will certainly purchase it again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I recently received a free sample of this product and let me say it is all that the description says it is. This is a very well made product. It appears to be constructed in a semi-perforated grid design that makes it really easy to tear according to your need. That in itself shows significant thought went into the design. The adhesive is plenty sticky without being tacky and is just the right thickness. It is at once fairly flexible so that it moves with your skin and is not cumbersome, yet it is also well constructed so that it is not flimsy. This product is definitely a winner.
