Better than Zovirax

This is the best topical treatment cream that you can get to treat cold sores and is better than Zovirax. It contains the exact same amount of active ingredients as Zovirax but is twice the size and half the price. I really like Blistex products for the lips and have been using them for 2 decades now. I like to keep a tube of this on hand at all times and have found that if I apply it early enough when feeling a cold sore come on, I can avoid the worst of it.

Works will

Cute little 5g tube it comes in and works really well. Only having to apply a small amount over the sore. It soothes the cold sore and helps it to heal faster when applied regularly throughout the day. After about 5 days i found it has done what its job is supposed to do, treat the virus! Its invisible dip you don't notice it at all which is great. Has a slight scent to it which isn’t over powering. I've been using Blistex lip balms for years so this one is no different, its affordable and does a great job just as much as a more expensive one would do.


I absolute hate cold sores, this product was very affordable and was recommended by a girlfriend. Easy to carry around and apply. No distinctive smell which is a plus, goes on clear so you can reapply during the day without feeling to self conscious and of course best of all it actually works! Can see the cold sore go away in a matter of days. Definitely recommend this brand and tube!
