My husband had tried Cold-EEZE about a week ago since he felt the start of a sore throat and he only applied the product a few times. I was oddly enough, waiting for my chance to start feeling ill and needing Cold-EEZE.
I was around my parents this weekend who were recovering from colds that had plagued them over the last week plus. I don’t know if it was just a mental thing, but I did note a slight sore throat the second day there and so I gave Cold-EEZE a go.
I sprayed the Cold-EEZE twice into my mouth, aiming at the inside of each cheek. Then I swished the liquid around in my mouth for 15 seconds before swallowing, per instructions. It had a sweet taste at first. It is sweetened with sucralose, which I am personally not a huge fan of, or any artificial sweeteners for that matter.
The spray was a mint variety, but I almost thought it had a bit of a cherry flavor at first and then noted a very mild mint flavor. It quickly created a feeling of dry mouth/bitterness that lasted for about a minute. It has maleic acid listed as an inactive ingredient, but this is an organic ingredient that gives items like wine its bitterness so I don’t know if that was leading to my experience there or not. Then my mouth was moist again, maybe with even a bit more saliva than before applying, but did have an aftertaste of zinc that may be noted if you have ever had zinc lozenges in the past for quite a while after.
I used Cold-EEZE two more times at four hour intervals during that day and did not have any other symptoms that warranted use after that.
