I have been using this New-Skin Liquid Bandage since I was a kid, as my mom used it before me. She is a hairstylist, I am an electrician, but regardless of occupation, I can’t imagine a time, (on appropriately sized wounds), that this product isn’t perfect.
Does it sting? Yessir it does. I use it on wounds that are probably supposed to be to big for it, so believe me, I have dealt with some stinging. However, as some other reviewers have said, not only does the stinging subside relatively quick, but with it goes the original pain.
Does it stink? Eh, I guess, but when a product works, it’s forgiven. Meet someone who is not the most attractive person in the world and then fall in love with them, it might not make them a beauty queen, but they look better all the time to you.
Simply put, this product, when used correctly, works. my recommendations are as follows.
1. Put this product on as you are watching your evening TV. This will accomplish three things, one, it allows you to apply and let dry without thinking about it, two, while you’re sleeping, it seems to setup extra strong. It will not just rub off throughout the night, and with no hand washing or anything going on, it really has a chance to take. Finally, you at least have that first overnight period of healing under your belt, and you will often times be amazed at what that small amount of time can accomplish.
2. Apply New Skin generously. As it settles it will thin out, but how thin do you need it to be? I apply two, sometimes three coats.
Using these two tips, I have had wounds heal incredibly fast.
