Product Review: Herpatch cold sore serum

Review by Patricia Foote

Product Review Herpatch Cold Sore Serum


Cold sores can be uncomfortable as well as unsightly. Pat, our reviewer put Herpatch cold sore serum to the test

Description of product: A serum to be applied when you feel a cold sore forming. It is a whit cream that creates an invisible film over the cold sore.

What are the active ingredients? Active oxygen therapy with zinc

How is it used? How often? Every three to four hours as required. I started to apply as soon as I felt that a cold sore was about to come on.

How easy is it to use? very

Did you notice a difference? How soon did you start to see a difference? Immediately. Initially I felt a burning’ sensation – this quickly passed- at least I was reassured that Herpatch was doing something! The cold sore didn’t ‘break out’ so I was extremely pleased …and relieved.

What did you like about this product? Ease of use

What did you dislike about it? nothing

How does it compare to other similar products, or the product you normally use? Best product used so far…and I have tried various over the years.

Would you buy again? Yes

Would you buy other products in the range? Yes

Would you recommend to a friend? Yes

General comments: best product used so far after a history of cold sore problems

Does it have the ‘fab’ factor – marks out of 5….5


Price: £7.99 from Boots.com
