Easy to use, read instructions first.

This product l found was really effective in helping sinus related / inner ear- problematic condition in myself. I looked up reviews which helped me to decide to buy the product. My eldest son also needed the extra something to help with the start of flu like symptoms etc. So 2 different needs. It worked quite quickly for both of us. l praise God for finding this practical medicine

Yes, I recommend this product

Easy to use nasal spray

I used this as soon as my throat began to get sore and I was feeling congested. A day later and I don’t seem any worse. I live with my mum and she caught this from my daughter and ended up with an infection and on antibiotics as a result. My daughter was very sick too. Fingers crossed I don’t suffer with it also.

Gobsmacked!

I have to say I was pretty sceptical about this product but..my daughter developed a “childcare cold” last week which she passed onto my wife. This cold seems to be a pretty bad one too. I thought to test out the Vicks First Defence. I started using it about a day after my daughter showed symptoms. Well..it’s now 3 days on and still haven’t even got a sniffle.

Yes, I recommend this product
