Great when they work but just not sticky enough sometimes
on 27 December 2009
I would agree with most of the product description - when these work they really are life savers - thick, squishy padding to cushion and protect. You can apply them beforehand to protect yourself from blisters but they work equally as well if you apply them on top of a blister and they literally do act as a second skin. Once applied you can no longer feel any rubbing or irritation which is great.
I have to mark them down though as they do not always stay firmly in place as stated. Whenever I have needed to use them on my little toe they just will not stay where I apply them but prefer to move round to the bottom of my foot where they irritate me. They are more effective on other toes but are slightly padded so reasonably obvious when you are walking although I am not too concerned with that if they are working well.
Also, when I go running, even if I apply the patch an hour or so before I run, I still come home to find it stuck firmly to a different area of my foot - now why can't it be stuck that firmly to where I originally positioned it?! For a product that advertises that it stays firmly in place for up to 3 days, this simply should not happen.
