Nexcare Active Bandages

nexcare-active-groupI recently had a chance to try out the Nexcare Active line of sports bandages. Nexcare products are made in the USA by the 3M Company. Multisport Bandages Although I am mostly a cycling chick, I have also been doing a bit of running since the beginning of the year. I am always having problems forming a blister on the back of my left heel. I tried the Nexcare Active waterproof blister pads on a recent run with great results. The blister pad prevented a blister from forming, and I was able to complete my 8 mile run pain free. The blister pads contain lavender, which helps to soothe your skin as it heals. The packaging on the Nexcare blister pads says that they "are soft, gel-like pads that cushion and protect to help prevent and heal blisters. Ideal for fingers, hands, toes and feet, or anywhere pressure points can lead to painful blisters." nexcare-active-blister-pads Nexcare Active Products I received a nice sampling of Nexcare Active products including:
  • Nexcare Active Waterproof Blister Pads
  • Nexcare Active Waterproof Abrasion Covers
  • Nexcare Active Waterproof Sport Pads
  • Nexcare Active Waterproof Skin Cover
  • Nexcare Active Extra Cushioning Waterproof Bandages
With four very active people living in our household, I am sure all of these Nexcare products will get lots of use over the course of the next few months. Between mountain biking, road biking, hiking, running, fishing and surfing, someone in the house is always coming home with cuts, scrapes and scratches. I am about to purchase a cyclocross bike to start racing in local cross races, I'll be sure to carry the Nexcare Active waterproof bandages with me at all times!
