Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 806.
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 I actually let my husband give Zicam swabs a try because he was coming down with a cold. The first thing he mentioned was that it was really easy to use but he was uncomfortable about putting a swab inside of his nose. After he swabbed his nose he did mention that there was a strong menthal smell to it and wasn't a huge fan of the menthal. But he did mention that it definitely cleared out his sinuses quickly and was able to breathe better. As far as shortening his cold he didn't really say that it helped stop it but definitely helped reduce some of the symptoms he was feeling quickly. Such as sneezing, runny nose and being overly congested.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from I was so happy to try Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs free through Crowd Tap. They could not have arrived at a better time as I had a cold brewing. This swab is easy to use and I loved the eucalyptus smell. The gel in the swab really helped to soothe and it felt as if it helped draw out the congestion from my nasal cavity. Once waiting about a minute after each application I blew my nose and didn't have as much stuffiness. I really felt this product helped to deal with the hassle and unpleasant symptoms I experience when having a runny nose with congestion. This product will definitely be part of my cold care arsenal from here on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My sister came to town for the holidays and ended up getting sick. I gave her a few of my Zicam cold remedy nasal swabs to use, she was traveling back the next day. She found it very easy to use and when she woke up this morning she was actually feeling better than she had yesterday when the cold symptoms started. She was nervous to try it out but very glad she did. I'm so glad I have these on hand for her. Although I'm not looking forward to getting a cold this year, it's good to know that I have these on hand to help me feel better faster. It has no bad taste, easy to use and actually helps ease the symptoms of a cold.

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 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.
