Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I hadn’t expected to need to use my first aid kit on the very weekend I received it.

On unpacking it, it seemed to offer a good range of first aid essentials, eg plasters, safety pins antiseptic wipes, latex gloves.... However, when my husband accidentally sliced a piece of skin from his thumb, its shortcomings were all too clear. A large plaster was needed but only one-size of narrow strips were included so we had to reach for our own supply instead. A crepe bandage was then needed to hold the large plaster in place – again, none were included which meant a quick Sunday afternoon dash to the nearest town before 4pm closing.

Based on this experience, I would consider the first aid kit to be only very basic but useful for small, minor cuts and injuries. With its zip-up case it’s easy to carry or stow away n the car but to deal with real-life cuts and grazes etc, a greater range of contents are needed, ie a range of sizes of plasters (essential) and a crepe bandage in place of the foil blanket, triangular bandage, 12 safety pins and 8 silica gel sachets!

On a plus note though, the antiseptic wipes ensured we were able to clean the wound before applying a Savlon spray-on plaster to seal the wound and then a larger plaster from our own supplies.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a nurse I'm probably the worst prepared person on the road! I was reflecting with a colleague that in an accident I'd be well placed with bottled water but I lacked anything else! I remember too an accident I was involved in where one of the adults got ot a pack of butter which she liberally spread over all the wounded parties ( don't ever do this!). I'd have nothing else to offer which is where this first aid kit comes in. There is some good stuff in this kit and it really is compact! Scissors, space blanket, plasters, gloves and plasters are included. Plus a triangular bandage which you will never use. Missing in my humble opinion are non-stick dressings (NA). if anybody ever stuck some gauze on a superficial wound of mine I'd be irritated as it sticks fast! Non-adhesive dressings are probably more expensive but worth it (this is not a criticism of this kit but of all kits in general). A good kit in a compact kit, hard to beat

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A first aid kit is one of those essentials which I imagine many of us are pretty reluctant to buy: the contents can be easily (and generally very inexpensively) self-assembled and put into a recycled ice cream box or some other such container. But it is equally easy to forget to organise one for the car, say, or to have one ready for travel. I guess this is where this type of kit comes in.

The contents are as listed on the product page, and it is very basic: for home use most of us would want something a good deal more sophisticated, including a better pair of scissors (those included are cheap and cheerful and not especially sharp) and antiseptic creams, sterile butterfly wound closures, eyewashes, tweezers etc. The most sensible option I think would be to buy all the stuff and divide it into 2 or 3 kits. But in reality I suppose most of us don't do that. Or if a ready made kit is required, a search on Amazon brings up a vast range of alternatives which are at a similar price and look to be much more comprehensive (eg including an instant freezer pack to stem blood flow, eye swabs etc), if a little larger, though for home and car, a slight increase in size surely would not matter.

For me, the best thing about this kit is the box or pouch: it is quite sturdy, with zip closure, a semi rigid shell and two internal elasticated net pockets to contain the items. I'd prefer to buy this myself and then stock up on the dressings etc. But the box is very small ('compact' is a more positive gloss on this characteristic).

Would I buy this kit? No: it is too basic and not such good value as tailoring the materials oneself: I would have to buy a number of things simply to make it serviceable as a first aid kit. Am I happy to have one? Yes.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always found first aid kits arouse personal passions - someone always wants something else and would leave other things out and this one is no different probably. It does have some essential (in my opinion) items. Disposable gloves, scissors, antiseptic wipes, micropore tape are fine. The dressings are ok though a bit minimal. I fully agree with another review on the subject of the triangular bandage - the other time I've used them has been in first aid tests! I'm not that sure that a space blanket fits my idea of first aid but I guess it isn't a bad idea.

On a lighter note I could find nothing in the leaflet about the large quantity of silica gel sachets that were enclosed - doubtless there is a medical use that hasn't made the headlines yet. Equally the zip around the case has a cable tie on it to stop it opening - maybe not best for an emergency kit although of course there are scissors... inside.

All in all not bad for the money with a good case and a basic first aid leaflet though better do exist. I don't think I'd buy it myself although I will make use of it and will probably take some stuff out and put stuff in. A good enough gift though.
