AS much as we look forward to the start of summer every year, there's nothing quite like a nasty burst of hay fever to put a real dampener on our mood.
But a mum has raved about daily hay fever wipes that 'gave her son's life back' and cured his symptoms.
And better still, the mum said can pick up a pack of 30 from The Range for 99p.
Suitable for use on both hands and face, these wipes are infused with peppermint and tea tree oil to soothe skin and prevent pollen from irritating it further.
The mum shared on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK: "Just a tip for anyone who suffers badly from hay fever. My son has tried everything going but these wipes gave him his life back!
"The wipes are soaked in peppermint and tea tree oil so really soothe the skin and eyes and trap the pollen."
Sam Cross, from Greater Manchester, previously said the wipes helped her hayfever too.
She wrote: "£1 in poundstretcher. Definitely worth it for the money and they work instantly for me".
Many people have said the wipes have been a success for them
One wrote: “I got some yesterday, they are good and have very good reviews”.
Another added: “They’re in Poundland too! I bought it recently. Not used yet though lol.”
And one gushed: “I got my son some they are helping. His hay fever is showing no signs of improving with age but they help for an instant fix”.
It looks like the days of slathering Vaseline around our nostrils and carrying around endless supplies of tissues are officially over.
How to beat the pollen bomb
There are plenty of treatment options to alleviate symptoms for hay fever sufferers.
Boots pharmacist Natalie Masters said: “Prevention is key, which means avoiding coming into contact with pollen in the first place.
"Grassy areas are often best avoided and if you can, don’t spend time outdoors at the times when pollen counts are highest, typically the early morning and late afternoon and evening.
"If you need to go outside, applying a petroleum jelly balm to the inside of your nostrils or using an allergy barrier nasal spray can help prevent pollen from entering your nostrils, whilst larger wraparound sunglasses can help stop pollen from irritating your eyes.
"Speak to your pharmacist about anti-histamine tablets, hay fever eye drops or a suitable steroid nasal spray.
"If you’ve been outdoors when the pollen count is high, make sure to shower and wash your hair once you get home to wash away any stray pollen particles.
"Regularly vacuuming and dusting your house with a damp cloth and washing and drying your clothes indoors may also help to keep your home a pollen-free zone.
"Importantly, try not to be worried or stressed about your hay fever. It has been claimed that hay fever can be exacerbated by this, so try to keep calm and consider different products and methods – hopefully you’ll soon find what works best for you.”
Boots is currently has their own brand hay fever products on offer for 2 for £5, including Boots One-A-Day Allergy Relief 10mg tablets (£2.99, 7-day supply) and Boots Hay fever Relief for Adults 50 micrograms/dose Nasal Spray 100 Metered Sprays (£4.59).
