Elastoplast Vintage Tin and Plasters Giveaway

In the UK we've all heard of Elastoplast. Synonymous with 'sticking plasters', they're a manufacturer we all trust and have always known very well - right from those early days when we fell over and grazed our knees as small children. It may well come as a surprise though to find out Elastoplast have been around for long enough that our Great-Great-Grandparents were just as familiar with them too.


In fact Elastoplast was first founded in 1896, and now sells over 200 different products globally under the brand names Elastoplast, Hansaplast and Curitas. From 'invisible' plasters and those impregnated with silver to help prevent infection, to completely waterproof plasters and butterfly shaped-plasters for the tip of a finger, the range is huge.

Elastoplast sticking plasters Vintage Tin Giveaway

There is an Elastoplast product for every cut and graze - and the best seller is the Aqua Protect. 100% waterproof, elastic and breathable. I can see why they're most popular -  they are what I use, especially if I cut my hand during preparing tea.

Elastoplast plasters and red tin

Elastoplast have recently launched a very cool Vintage Tin, which is not only lovely to look at, but deeply practical. It's water tight and really the perfect thing for plasters, so it's lovely they have brought it back. Not just good for sticking plasters though, it will keep those important little bits like lip balm, safety pins and tweezers safe and clean, even in the depths of your bag - and you'll be able to find them straightaway when you need them!

To promote the launch Elastoplast have offered not one, but two Vintage Tins plus a bundle of plasters (including the Aqua Protect) for one of my readers. It's a giveaway that's useful to everyone! My plasters have been incredibly useful to me already with my young lads - we've had a cut knee and a nasty splinter since Tuesday....
