Product information

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 the symptoms get worse.

How does it work?
When used at the first signs of a cold, First Defence nasal spray acts at the back nose directly where the cold virus takes hold and starts to develop (that's why it is a nasal spray). It traps, inactivates and helps your body naturally remove the cold virus, before it develops into a full blown cold.

What to expect?
When using First Defence nasal spray, you may experience increased nasal discharge (runny nose) or temporary stinging. These are normal signs that the product is working. They are not harmful to your health and will not last for long.

Use at the 1st signs of a cold
1. To help trap
2. Inactivate

Effective but unpleasant

It does work but is horrible to use- leaves nose sore & blocked with sore throat afterwards for about half an hour too. Just about worth the pain though as it can stop colds from developing. I also use it after flights & so far it’s stopped that post flight lurgy too...

worth every penny

First time Ive used this, I had the pain in the back of my nose that made me dread what was coming. 24 hours in and I get the spray and although its not a miracle cure the symptoms did not increase in severity, no pain in my throat and just very mild and manageable cold symptoms, none of the shaky ill feeling and pain I was dreading and overall I feel like I dodged a bullet and this product really works at reducing the symptoms to a manageable level, who knows if I took it sooner it may have been an even better result. Brilliant stuff and Im grateful

Excruciating pain

Having spayed into my nose following the instructions (didnt inhale, didnt tilt head), I had excruciating pain - headache within 2 seconds, eye streaming and swollen, face on the side Id sprayed blotchy. Felt like Id sprayed fire into my nose. That was all before Id even had a chance to spray my other side. Pain lasted for hours, and I still ended up with a cold. Wish Id googled reviews for this product before buying it as there are a lot of bad reactions to this spray. Straight into the bin, waste of money.

genuinely life changing

Im not exaggerating when I say this is a miracle product. Im naturally someone that catches colds the someone on the moon has a sniffle, and committing to London everyday this meant I was getting several colds a year... sick leave isnt good :( I was very sceptical to be honest, but since trying it at the start of the year Ive seen off 4 colds and one of those had actually begun. Its a bit awakening when you pump it and you end up with an odd taste in throat, but so worth it.
