    Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandages is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22481.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite bandage I've been using these for years and they're my go-to bandaid. I strongly share the common complaint about having to buy boxes of assorted sizes when you mostly use one. I suppose it's good business for Nexcare since we wind up buying more than we (the consumers) need. Lack of single sizes is the only reason I withheld a star from my review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best adhesive bandage I have ever used! These really do stay put in hard to bandage areas. And they are completely waterproof. I love the clear! They are sometimes hard to find.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to sell individual sizes! These waterproof bandages are wonderful. The adhesive is one of the few that does not irritate my skin, and the bandages stay on through hand washing, which is a huge plus. I also like the “method” of application, with the paper reinforcement around the edges, for an easy, clean, wrinkle-free application. But I do so wish they sold packages of all one size, especially for the smallest 22x26 mm size. I have excess boxes of your larger sizes that I never use, just to get more of the smallest size for regular use. I see that many others have made this request as well. I would give it a perfect 5 stars if they were sold in boxes of individual sizes! Please listen to your loyal customers!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Need individual boxes of the smallest sizes only I only use the smallest size, they are great and works perfect. Unfortunately i have wasted so many boxes of the other sizes I don't use...i had enough, I'm using spots sized ones from other brands because Nexcare refuses to sell the smallest size by itself for its royal consumers. Gosh you already made the smallest size available in assorted boxes, why can't you sell it as stand alone item???

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sell individual sizes. These are amazing but I don’t need 70 large bandages. Why can’t I buy a box of just the smaller bandages. Annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous product! Your waterproof bandages are the BEST I have ever used! I am 73 years old and am so happy that I can use Nexcare products! In fact, I am going to buy some more today! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One size small bandages please! These bandages are by far the best bandage on the market. They really are quite waterproof and actually manage to properly stick, a refreshing change of pace compared to other bandages. One can wear these on their hand and wash their hands without the absolute mess that gets made of other bandages. It is hard to describe the strange wonder it is to have bandages that actually work. That said, unlike the others voicing wishes for one-size bandages, I actually only ever seem to need the tiny bandages. All of my boo-boos are almost always small enough to be covered by the smallest bandages and wind up on fingers or some part of the hand. The medium and large bandages only ever get used when I am forced to "make do" once I run out of the smalls. The medium and large bandages are far too large to comfortably work on fingers. Even on the larger surface of the back of the hand, they are awkwardly too large and inevitably reach over a "ledge" or onto a joint and seem to get sort of "over worked" as they are constantly stretched over and over as the hand articulates. Even though other bandage brands frankly might as well not exist when compared to Nexcare, one thing they do get right is offering a pack that's just small bandages. In an assorted pack of 100, there are 40 small bandages and a total of 60 of the medium and large that are completely wasted on me. A 100 pack of small bandages would be absolutely perfect. That, or I'm going to need some sort of exchange program where I can exchange the larges and mediums for smalls... but that would just be so much hassle for everyone involved. Lets just make one size packs of the small bandages too. Please? :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I love the bandaids but can’t find one size the packs give the small bandages I have 104 of them they are useless so you really waste money on the packs
