Back to school in September usually brings with it a plague of germs as the summer’s viruses thrive in the melting pot of little people in school. Not a September leaves without some germ being shared between friends. I hate getting ill, and with Jelly Baby’s delicate chest I am very keen to avoid coughs and colds so when I was offered the chance to review NasalGuard’s Cold and Flu Block I jumped at the chance.
This little tube promises miracles – it is a drug free gel which claims to reduce your chances of catching the cold and flu virus. The science behind this is a little above my head but essentially the gel is positively charged so repels the negatively charged viruses. Because it is drug free it is suitable for children and pregnant and nursing mothers.
The gel comes in a little tube, is scentless and a little bit goes a long way. It isn’t sticky and doesn’t leave any residue so Bean was happy to put it on every day before school. You just apply a thin layer around your nose and upper lip.
Now I can’t honestly say if this product worked, but I can honestly say that we haven’t caught any colds or flu since we have been using it, and as I said, September is the time we usually do. At £11.99 a tube in Boots it isn’t cheap but it does contain 150 applications so enough to last the winter so you might consider it worth it as a precaution.
