#BlockThatCold Challenge

Some of my regular followers will remember that when I recently ran a giveaway for NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK, I told you that I would be participating in the Spink Back to School “Block that Cold” Mummy Blogger Challenge.

Son2 and I started using our free tube of NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK on Saturday 23rd August, more than a week ahead of the start of term. So after over a week’s usage I thought I’d give you the first report on how the challenge is going. I had woken up that morning with a slight tickle in my throat and I’m pleased to say that hasn’t developed into anything nasty. Both son2 and I are very well, although I still experience the throat tickle from time to time.

The NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK is very easy to apply by rubbing a small drop on the nostrils and upper lip. The packaging suggests reapplying 4-6 times a day but I have to admit that we are only managing 2-4 application each day.



Of course the real test is yet to come, when son 2 goes back to school on Tuesday, a day after son1. So I will update this post at intervals during September on our progress.

And I hope that the NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK has worked for prizewinner Danika. When I notified Danika of her win, she said it was very timely as she had a cold then.

NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK

NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK is an innovative, drug free, clinically proven cold and flu prevention treatment. The clear, non greasy gel is applied to the nostrils and upper lip regularly throughout the day which creates an invisible barrier in which airborne pathogens are snared and immobilised, reducing the likelihood of getting ill. Being drug free, this product is safe for children, pregnant women and breastfeeding mums. It can be worn over and under make up.

The current RRP for NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK is £11.99 for a 3g tube of 150 applications and it is stocked at Boots, Superdrug, Alliance Pharmacies and Sainsbury’s.

Update as at 13/09/2014
Son2 and I have now been using the NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK for three weeks. And son2 has been back at school for nearly two weeks. I can confidently state neither of us have developed a cold although we’ve been near other people with colds. I have continued to experience a tickly throat sometimes but nothing more than that. And son2 says he feels great. I can’t tell how much is left in the tube, but we haven’t finished it yet.

Update as at 28/09/2014
Son1 who hasn’t been participating in the challenge, due to his chemotherapy came down with a cold middle of this week and missed a couple of days school. I have been looking after him and even though both son2 and I have still been using the NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK, I have caught the cold off son1 and have felt really rotten since Thursday evening. So far son2 is still fine. Maybe the NasalGuard Cold&FluBLOCK has stopped me catching more bugs, but it didn’t help when I was very close to son1’s bug.

    Thanks!! It certainly was right on time!! We’re using it when working at libraries etc. rather than our home office and it’s nice to feel like there’s an added layer of defence – like armour for your immune system!! Many thanks!! With love, Danika xxx

    Son2 looks a bit bemused by you rubbing stuff into his nose lol!
    If it works this is a great product! It’s always the same every year, the kids go back to school, share all their new germs they’ve bee accumulating over the holidays and everyone is ill by mid-late September.
    I’ll be checking back to see if it really does work before buying it, although with 5 kids 150 applications won’t really go that far! #weekendbloghop
