I've just tried this after getting annoyed at normal plasters. I get a lot of cuts around my knuckles and this is a real pain as I'm a Microbiology student, and if you're working in a lab with bacteria you do *not* want to have open cuts on your hands. Most other plasters either wouldn't stretch enough or let water in around the edges and came off so I eventually took the plunge and bought some of this.
It seems to be great stuff: there is a minor stinging sensation that fades a few seconds after you put it on, and then a minute or so dries it. After that it'd be easy to forget it is even there. It feels like ordinary skin and stretches like it too, but leaves a little glossy layer where it was applied. I've washed my hands a couple of times and it is still there so I've no worries about waterproofing.
This is great stuff and I'd definitely buy it over normal plasters. The only problem is that it's a fair shade more expensive, but seeing as I won't have to constantly replace it like I would with normal plasters it might work out cheaper in the long run. The only cons I can think of are that there's no padding to protect the cut from more bumps or scratches and you're not supposed to use it around your face.
