My Review- Which is Better Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid WashProof (antiseptic) or Hansaplast WashProof ?
Recently, I got chance to try adhesive bandages of both Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid WashProof (antiseptic) and Hansaplast WashProof and after using more than 10 bandages of each, I am ready with my experience. Few days back, I got injured at the bottom of my foot and at this place only a bandage with strong adhesive can work.
I first started with Hansaplast bandages because it was only available product at the time of buying. My experience remained satisfied with Hansaplast and it has very strong adhesive and a single Hansaplast bandage lasts up to 24 hours. I was using water proof bandage of Hansaplast because I did not wanted water to enter inside wound. Everything was fine with Hansaplast water proof bandage expect slight whitening of part near the wound.
After finishing Hansaplast bandages, I got chance to try Johnson & Johnson’s BAND-AID Wash Proof (Antispectic). I bought two boxes of Band-aid with 10 pcs each. Johnson and Johnson claims that new Band-aid has improved antiseptic and better adhesive qualities. I do agree with first claim that antiseptic is better and works fine; however, I do not agree with second claim that adhesive is better. At a place like bottom of foot, Band-Aid adhesive was not a good fit and sometimes, I was required to use two or three band-aid bandages in a single day. When we compare Hansaplast and Band-aid bandages for adhesive strength then Hansaplast is much better and clear winner; however, antiseptic used in new Band-aid looks slightly better than Hansplast as I did not observed whitening of skin after using Band-Aid.
About Price- Hansplast bandage is 20% economical than Band-aid bandage.
Therefore, I will rate Hansaplast Bandage better than Band-Aid with 2 points in the favour of Hansaplast and 1 point in the favour of Band-aid.
