I personally haven’t had the chance to try out the New-Skin Liquid Bandage but I can tell you that this product is great to have on hand especially if you have kids or if you’re prone to cuts and scrapes due to clumsiness. I have a 9 year old daughter who plays rough so having this on hand at all times is great. This liquid spray fits nicely in my purse, making it easier to tend to any cuts and scrapes my daughter got during play time. Plus, it definitely beats carrying a box of band-aids around in my purse.
After my daughter was outside riding her bike she ended up scrapping her knees pretty bad. She came running inside the house crying saying her knees hurt. We washed the area off pretty good and went to go grab a band-aid to cover it up. Then right in the middle of that I stopped in my tracks and remembered I got the New-Skin Liquid Bandage in my Goodlife VoxBox so off I went to go grab that instead of a regular band-aid. My daughter looked at me with a worried face and said mom that’s not a band-aid. I told her that it was but it was just in a liquid form. Still with a worried face we sprayed her knee with the New-Skin Liquid Bandage. The smell of it was kind of bad but didn’t linger around. It was gone within a few minutes of spraying. After about 10 minutes of spraying the liquid bandage my daughter was outside playing again. She said that it doesn’t feel like there is anything there and that she forgot that she scraped her knees. We both agree that the New-Skin Liquid Bandage lives up to what it says: it does dry pretty quick and does leave a tough protective barrier over the wound.
So with all that said, I will definitely buy this in the future as well as recommend this product to anyone who has kids or if you’re the type of person who gets cuts and scrapes all the time.
