For the past 2 weeks or so I have been using a product called NasalGuard, Allergie block, I use to take anti-histamine drugs but I’m not very keen on having to take tablets all the time for everything. The nasal guard is the perfect way to let me do what I love doing the most.
I was having issues at the stables where I ride with sneezing from either some of the horses with long fur and malting coats or the hay and the little floaty bits that go up your nose, in your mouth and in your eyes. This was getting worse over the last few months with a warm winter it didn't help either, I love riding as you all know and didn't want this to become a problem for me, I was so glad to be offered the chance to try the Nasal Guard to see if this would help me.
Key benefits: Drug -free, Clinically proven, suitable if you are pregnant and for children.
How does it work?
It can be used by anyone suffering from allergy symptoms such as pet fur, hay-fever and dust. Nasal Guard blocks these things called airborne.
It instantly leaves a tingly sensation just under your nose, like when you put something cold and minty on, although the smell is not very minty, it has a very strange smell, but you get use to this and forget it straight away.
How do you apply it? – this is very easy, just squeeze a drop onto your finger and apply a layer around your nose just above your lip. It dries very quickly and doesn't leave a sticky spot, however the tingling feeling is strange for a second. This does need applying every 4 hours or so, this was my mistake, it wore off and the sneezing fits came back. I have used this 4 times while riding and finding it very useful, my only problem now is with this weather, the flies are back!
My boyfriend (Charlie) also tried this gel when cleaning up the horrible mold spores that keep appearing in our flat, he suffers from asthma and when he is cleaning his chest gets tight and he sneezes constantly, too, this gel really helped him when cleaning, he still had a tight chest which he uses his inhaler for, but he was able to clean away without sneezing too much. (he also swept the stairs too) this must be working.
My review – I believe this gel can work when used correctly, enough is spread onto the upper area between nose and lip and it is re-applied. I found it very useful when riding I have not had any sneezing fits but still do have itchy eyes, Charlie also found it useful when cleaning. It does feel odd having something on your face, but you soon forget about it anyway.
I recommend this product if you are allergic to something and it causes you to sneeze, this will really help!
Let me know if you have used this before, I would love to see your review
