Ouch – The Soup and Elastoplast comes to my aid …oh and a giveaway!


‘Ouch! I can’t believe I’ve cut myself again!’ I thought to myself as I reach for my ringing cellphone. It was The Soup calling about their Elastoplast Blogger project – and they have selected me to be part of it. ‘How timely!’ I thought.

As part of this exclusive Soup project, I have been sent a pack of Elastoplast Heavy Fabric Waterproof plasters. My task is to give them a good road test to see how they measure up to their claims.

What they say:

  • Hi-DryTEX technology making the strip 100% waterproof
  • ‘Sure stick’ adhesive to keep the wound fully protected from bacteria
  • Flexible fabric that adapts to twists and turns of your body so it’s comfy to wear.

To see what they are really capable of, they will be put through some rigorous testing:

Challenge 1:

Stickability – just how strong is the ‘sure stick’ adhesive?

Challenge 2:

Waterproof – how does it respond to water?

I will be asking my friends and colleagues to test these out too. Results to come in the next post and in the mean time…
