Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 801.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So, here's the story. Myself and two other members of my household got a cold. I was the last to get the scratchy throats and annoying sniffles. I encouraged the other two family members to use the Zicam swabs, but they only used them once. I started using them at the first noticeable sign of my cold and used them every few hours, as directed. Although they didn't help immediately, which I knew, they made my nose feel better, as the gel cooled and moistened inside my nose. My symptoms were gone in a few days, and the other two family members? Well, their colds hung on for nearly two weeks. Using the Zicam swabs definitely made me a believer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honestly, I have never used any Zicam products before. Thanks to Crowdtap and Zicam, I was intrigued to try these Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs because of how innovative this product looks. When I received this product, I was beginning to get a cold. Right at Christmas too! I applied as instructed and immediately amazed at how soothing the Cooling Menthol and Eucalyptus feels. Easy to apply and it is a Pre-Cold remedy. So as soon as you start sniffling or sneezing, apply these swabs and your cold will be shortened. It works. Very happy that instead of being miserable with a cold during Christmas, I was allowed to enjoy time with my family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was lucky to receive them when I did. Both my husband and I got a cold a few days later. And my colds usually hang around for two weeks or so, but this time only lasted about 4 days and it was not as severe as I expected it to be. Doesn't have a bad smell, seems to dissolve into the nostril pretty quick, just be sure not to blow your nose for about 30sec to a minute after using. Also helped my dry nose. It was stuffy but really dry due to the furnace and cold. These helped a lot with that. All in all, I am quite impressed and will buy them again in the future. It is obvious they do work as they are advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am currently training for a marathon and cannot afford to miss any training time from a cold. I felt the tinge of a cold coming on so I decided to use Zicam Cold Remedy to help me through. This product is very easy to use- hold, snap, swab, done! I really like that Zikam Cold Remedy is single as to not contaminate others or continue to contaminate myself and work to get better faster. There is a small scent, very light not that of medicine rather leaves or an outside scent, the scent dissipates quickly and your nasal passages dry within a couple of minutes. I used Zicam Cold Remedy for five days as directed until I did not feel the cold any longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I received Zicam nasal swabs as a free sampling opportunity through Crowdtap. I woke up one morning shortly after receiving the sample feeling as if I was coming down with a common cold. I had a stuffy nose, scratchy throat and was sneezing my head off. I used the Zicam nasal swabs which is formulated to shorten the length and severity of a cold when used at the first signs of a cold. I noticed that my symptoms did improve over the next 3 days, as I continued to use the swabs as directed and by the fourth dat, I was symptom free. I believe that Zicam helped to shorten the length of my cold as it claims. It was easy to use and helped me get back to my normal self.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the ease of this product. It’s very easy to use and I don’t have to deal with any gross tasting products. Just swipe around the entrance of the nose and I’m done. I love how it’s so different from all other products on the market. No worries about nose sprays, large pills, or gross tasting cold syrup. Another feature I love about this product is that it’s homeopathic! I try to use only homeopathic products so this was perfect. I didn’t really notice if it shortened my cold but it didn’t make it worse. My nose did run much more after using the product so it helped get rid of the cold germs. I loved how easy it was to use the product and recommend it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs are truly amazing! I swear they are magic. My husband was at the beginning stages of getting a cold. Sneezing, coughing, stuffy nose, all the good stuff. I gave him one of these swabs and he laughed at me. He was convinced that these were just a scam and were a waste of money, but guess what, he tried it and fell in love. He said it immediately unclogged his nose and his cold was a lot shorter than normal. He has been bragging to all his friends about these and my medicine cabinet is always stocked with them. We are very very thankful for these Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs, they work amazingly!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zicam cold remedy Nasal Swabs with cooling Menthol & Eucalyptus is truly a life saver. I have two small children, so I don't have time for a cold. Once I started getting that scratch in the back of my throat, I knew it was going to start. I started using the Nasal Swabs at the first sign of the cold and thanks to Zicam, it was so much shorter and easier to deal with. The directions are simple, easy to follow and its so small, I can carry it around with me literally anywhere! I was a little worried that the menthol would burn a little but it's the exact opposite. It was REFRESHING! Not only will I recommend this to everyone, but I will always have a box handy for myself or my husband just in case!
