Advantages: kills cold germs before they take hold
Disadvantages: not easy to use, stings the back of you throat and makes your eyes water
I thought I would write a review about this wonder product. I was in town today and started to sniff so thought i would give it a go as everyone raved about it.
I went back to the car in the carpark to try it... so glad I did.
The claim its " fights cold germs before they can take hold"...micor-gel spray.
When to use?
Start to use when at trik of catching a cold or in the early stages before you cold has fully developed...
(yes just started today, so I think that means I qualify...)
Directions for use.
Without tilting you head apply 2-3 sprays per nostril 4 times a day and avoid inhaling deeply...
(yes 3 squirts per nostril... seen the advert.... doesn't look to bad...)
How does First Defence work?
First defence nasal spray targes thes the area deep inside the nasal cavity where the cold germs first take hold and multiply.
WELL.... the moment I squirted it, tears were rolling down my face. It was so sore... my nose started to run even more... and I wanted to sneeze. But I tried not to just in case...
So glad I had gone back to the car... had to reapply my make up.
I must admit that after a few hours I wasn't sniffing as much.. Took another few squirts... same senario... streaming eyes and nipping nose.
But it does wear off after a few minutes, then it seems to trickle down the back of you throat and tastes fowl.
But it claim to rid you of a cold.... a few moments of inconvience cant be all that bad, for days of snorting and sniffing.
I don't know if it will work but at the moment it seems to be going ok.
Will definately be updating this review as i progress either way.
I would say the actual product was really awquard to use. I think using one hand to hold the bottle and squirt the liquid/gel. The white lid slids down which ejects the liquid. I hurt my nose the second time i did it because I used 2 hands.
Summary: It maybe a case of no pain no gain , and a few moments of discomfort to days of stinking cold..
