If you’re a mom or a dad of a toddler you will know the value that plasters hold in your house. Kids, for some or other reason, love a plaster for any and all kind of boo-boos real and imaginary. Plasters are almost like badges of honour, like look at me I have a scratch and a plaster to prove it!
In my house, we must go through a box of plasters a month and it’s not because I have an accident-prone kid (thank goodness), it’s because I have a plaster-loving-kid. I get it, it’s like sticking your favourite stickers on yourself and they’re not going anywhere come bath or shine, until you say so. I’ve only ever had boxes of plasters like Elastoplast in our house, so when they asked me if I’d like to try out their new 3-Step Wound Care Products, consisting of a Wound Spray, a pack of Elastoplast Plasters and a Wound Healing Ointment I thought I’d give them a try.
These products are small and convenient and help you with the first very important steps of cleaning and protecting the wound with a handy spray that is non-messy and quite novel, so if your kid is fussing about having their scratch cleaned then just let them do the spraying and boom you’re good. They’re also really compact so they slot into any cupboard, backpack, cubbyhole or bag really easily. I actually have a set in my house and in my car. Another awesome item that they have included is a Healing Ointment which helps prevent scarring and scabs and helps heal your injury in double the time.
In my house, Miss James is the queen of plasters she absolutely loves them, so I thought I’d give this trio a little test run on one of her favourite bears Harry. The conclusion is that it’s quick and easy to use, there is no need for cotton wool or extra tears. You just spray, pop on one of your kids favourite plasters and then afterwards some gentle applying of some ointment which is easily absorbed and the bonus is, it makes your hands feel really soft after 🙂
Sidenote: No bears were hurt in the making of this photoshoot, just covered in Frozen plasters not sure what’s worse hahah!
*These items can all be bought separately.
