Best care for wounds with Nexcare Sensitive Skin

Being the only girl with two elder brothers, Tiger girl has grown up loving spending time outdoors at playgrounds.  She loves being in the park  climbing structures and constantly challenges herself to be able to keep up with her elder brothers.

This girl is quite the daredevil and is not afraid of heights. She gets an adrenaline rush for attempting what may seem to be the near impossible for her age. As a result, she often ends up with grazed hands and knees when she misses her footing and slips and falls. Ouch!!

Even though Tiger girl has quite a high tolerance for pain however sometimes the oozing blood from the wounds get to her and she she ends up bawling due to the pain that she is experiencing.

My Experience 

As an experience mom of 3, I always carry plasters  with me so that I handle boo-boos immediately when they happen.

The boys used to get scraps and cuts  very often when they were younger  if they fell at the playground or accidentally hit against a playscape. The plasters  kept within my wallet get used up very quickly.

I have tried different  brands of bandages  with the boys.  The plasters that we used either stuck  too tightly to the skin and  made the boys squeal when it was taken off or   doesn’t even adhere to the skin.

The experience that I had with 3M Nexcare Sensitive  Skin Bandages, Adhesive Pads and Tape had been really eye opening.

The latest  bandages  from Nexcare Sensitive Skin Range by 3M are specially crafted and  does not cause any comfort or redness from the peel caused by sensitive reaction to the bandage during removal.

3M ™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive. This new range of product  literally “falls off” without tugging at the sensitive skin of young old or fragile.

I have been impressed with the  how durable the  Nexcare Sensitive Skin  bandages are and how easy and painless it is to remove them.

I do not need to endure any more hassles of my  kids screaming in pain when bandages are removed as their skin is not tugged on during the removal process.

You can  watch the Sensitive Skin Demo below to see how gentle the 3M Nexcare bandages are as compare to other leading brands in the market.

 

 

Tiger girl’s experience with Nexcare

My girl gets scrapes quite often. I  normally put a plaster to cover the wound and prevent it from being infected when it occurs.

With the assortment of sizes of plasters one can easily find an appropriate size to cover the wound.  Being clinically designed for sensitive and fragile skin it didn’t make her skin turn red when it was removed.

What we liked about the 3M Nexcare plasters

  • Made from Hypoallegenic material
  • Latex Free
  • Ease to peel out from the packaging. Even Tiger girl could  put on the plaster herself without hassle
  • Water and moisture resistant.
  • Available in three different sizes

Recently Tiger girl got some scrapes on her hands when she fell while running around in the park. As you see (from the picture below ) quite a large area of her arm was injured.  A single plaster would not be large enough to cover the whole surface area and several plasters would have to be used to prevent an infection from occurring. I decided to use their adhesive pads instead of sticking multiple plasters on her hand.

To ensure that the adhesive pad remained snugly on Tiger girl’s arm I used the tape to reinforce it. This tape is extremely easy to use and you do not even need to use a scissors to tear it off from the roll.

What we liked about the 3M Adhesive Pads and Tape

  • 3M™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive making the removal pain free.
  • the tape is easy to be torn and doesn’t cause chafing of the skin.
  • Easy to re-position without losing its adhesive properties.

This new range of 3M Nexcare Sensitive Range is not only for kids. It was  formulated for individuals with sensitive skin.   It is ideal  for the  very old, very young, those with fragile skin due to  chronic illness, skin with lots of hair, skin prone to adverse reactions from adhesives or skin disorders such as eczema.

It certainly receives a thumbs up from me and Tiger girl.

Hands on Pottery at Li Tao Wan Pottery

Letting the kids try various different types of art was one of my aims during our December holiday trip to Taiwan.   Pottery was one of the things which I would love  the kids to try out and we got the chance at  Li Tao Wan Pottery.

It was the first time the kids saw a pottery workshop and experience how to manipulate the potter’s wheel. As far as I know this kind of experience is not readily available here in Singapore. They were really privileged to try it last December.

It looked like a scene out of Ghost where  Demi  More was making her vase on a similar wheel.

Tiger girl is too little to work the potter’s wheel so we used cutters and our hands to make  our own art work.

I love the details which Tiger girl made using the different presses that we were given.

Doggie boy made a cup while Monkey Boy made a bowl with his piece of clay.

We had to wait about 4-6 weeks after the artwork was done before we could receive it as they only did batch firing in their kiln.

Have you tried doing pottery before?
