Why is it different from other cold products? What does it do?

Unlike medicines that help relieve bothersome cold symptoms, First defence nasal spray works at the first signs of a cold by targeting the viruses to help stop the cold in its tracks before they symptoms get worse.

How does it work?

When used at the first signs of a cold, First Defence nasal spray acts at the back of the nose directly where the cold virus takes hold and starts to develop. It traps, inactivates and helps your body naturally remove the cold virus, before it develops into a full blown cold.

How to Use

Always read leaflet before use

How and when to use it?

Apply 2-3 sprays per nostril immediately within the 14-36 hours after feeling the 1st signs of a cold such as a tickle at the back of your throat, or sneezing. Use up to 4 times a day. Avoid inhaling deeply.

For best results continue to use for 2 days after symptoms subside.

Not suitable for children under 12

Doesn`t work I`ve tried this spray first time for a few days with no effect, although I did everything exactly as prescribed in the instructions (at a first sign of cold and with the right time intervals). I thought I would give it another chance but it simply doesn`t do anything unlike other products, which are cheaper and more effective. My nose is still blocked and I keep sneezing all the time. Had to go and buy another nasal spray. What a waste of money! 19 February 2013
Does what it says on the box I've used Vicks products for over 70 years and they have always been effective. I got these to send to my friends in New Zealand as they were not able to buy them there any longer - due to 'no demand' they were told. They were delighted with how quickly I was able to buy them and post them off in plenty of time for the New Zealand winter. 27 April 2013
It does actually work, and has every time! I feel this needs a much better review than it currently has as this is the best product for keeping a cold away. But you seriously have to get it early, literally the first weird feeling you get at the back of your throat otherwise you're too late. If your nose is already bunged up like the other reviewer then no, it probably won't work for you. On only one occasion has this not worked for me...because mine was out of date :') Any other time I absolutely swear by it. 11 March 2013
