If, like me, you suffer from bad allergies at this time of year such as the much dreaded hay fever, you'll know how difficult it is to sort through the wide variety of remedies that stores have on offer. Up until three years ago I never suffered from hay fever myself, but I have always been a bit of a sickly person. This meant that over the years I have tried a million and one products to fight a blocked nose.
Every cough, cold and bug that goes around - I catch it! So over the
years I have tried and tested almost every syrup, lozenge, pastille,
pill, tablet, throat, and nose spray there is available.
Having a blocked nose is something I cannot stand, so when nose sprays
became widely available I was over the moon! However, I've found some
can be really damaging, painful to use and cause nasty side effects.
I suffer from nose bleeds which are often triggered by using nasal
sprays, but as I could not stand to have a blocked nose I had finally
settled on using Sudofed Blocked Nose Spray (£3.99), as I found this to be the
least harsh product for my nose.
But then I discovered Otrivine Sinusitis Spray (£4.19)! It is by far the best
spray I've ever used and best of all it doesn't hurt, irritate my nose
or cause nose bleeds! I've found it to last up to 10 hours without need
to re spray, so this has been so convenient for long days at uni, work
or nights out!
When my hay fever really started to affect me recently, I had continued
using the product but when I went to buy more, I found they had released
a version called Allergy Relief (4.19) especially for conditions such as hay
fever! I bought some to try out and found it works just as well!
Things have been a bit quiet on the blog front I know, but I have been
so snowed under with my final year deadlines! I've handed in my
dissertation now and have a few more bits to finish, but in three weeks I
should have completed my journalism degree!
Part of me is very excited but the other part is dreading it a little
bit! I've been trying to keep my Instagram up to date with products and
outfits that you guys may find interesting, but I will get back to full
time posting as soon as my degree is done!
