A Review + Giveaway!

What exactly are OCEAN Nasal Products?

OCEAN Nasal Care Products

As the indoor heat goes on and air travel plans are made, doctors recommend preventative nasal care as a way to help ward off common winter illnesses, and the most trusted brand for doing that is OCEAN. OCEAN offers a variety of nasal care products, including:

OCEAN Complete is a two-in-one saline solution for sinus and nasal relief. The white tip delivers a saline mist for nasal moisturizing, while the orange tip delivers a larger saline stream for sinus irrigation. It is pre-mixed, easy to use, convenient and sterile.

OCEAN Premium is ideal for people suffering from dry nasal passages, nose bleeds, nasal congestion or sinusitis this cold and flu season. This best-selling brand name nasal spray has been “the spray recommended most by doctors coast to coast.”

OCEAN For Kids is specifically formulated for newborns and children up to 12 years of age. Children need to be taken care of as well during the cold and flu season, and this saline solution is ideal for children suffering from dry nasal passages, nose bleeds, nasal congestion, or sinus infections.

               Kinoko AHCC  The last thing you need right now is the flu! Kinoko AHCC contains Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) - the world’s most researched natural immune ingredient, supported by more than 50 human studies. AHCC is made from the roots of Japanese medicinal mushrooms and a new clinical study at Michigan State University showed that

AHCC enhances the effectiveness of the seasonal flu shot. So whether you are getting a flu shot or skipping it, make AHCC a part of your immune arsenal to fend off viruses both during the flu season and all year round.  Want to learn more? Check out this video about how AHCC works!

My Review…

Packaging & Presentation

The packaging is wonderful! OCEAN Products look very attractive as they are colorful and stand out compared to other brands.  I received the shipment to review, and all were intact and in perfect shape.

For review, I received . . .
  •      OCEAN Premium Saline Nasal Spray w/ included Travel Size
  •      OCEAN Complete Sinus Irrigation
  •      OCEAN Premium Saline Nasal Spray for KIDS
  •      Kinoko AHCC Immune Health Dietary Supplement
This is the Premium Saline Nasal Spray

 Ease of Use

  •  I thought the OCEAN Premium Saline Nasal Spray was very easy to use, as you put 2 quick sprays up each nostril to moisturize dry nasal passages.
  • The OCEAN Complete Sinus Irrigation was super easy to use.  There are two tips, the orange one for Irrigation, and the white one for moisturizing.   I used both of them, and I loved how it made me feel after. I felt like a weight was lifted off of my sinus cavities!
  • The OCEAN Premium Saline Nasal Spray for KIDS was easy to use, as like the adults 2 quick sprays and you are done.  The hard part was actually getting my son to allow me to put it in his nose. He didn’t like it too much!
This is the Saline Spray for Kids
Sinus Irrigation - Heaven in a bottle!

-        The hardest part of this review was the Kinoko AHCC Immune Health Dietary Supplement pills.  The directions say to take 4-12 capsules daily before meals.  Sometimes I forgot to take all 12, but I took them all eventually!   I can’t say I noticed a difference, however it’s an immunity supplement so perhaps I will notice it because I won’t get sick!

Actual size of the pills

Pros / Cons
         Makes my sinuses feel great!  Moisturized my nasal passages as the weather is changing!
Drug Free (infants – adults!)
   No bad taste
       Safe for Daily Use

The AHCC Pills require 12 to be had a day
My son HATED anything going in his nose.

To summarize everything, I must say these products are awesome! I like how easy they are to use, and the results are amazing!  I’ve tried products like this in the past, and I always got turned off by the disgusting taste afterwards!  OCEAN products are non-medicated and work just as well as any others! The Kinoko AHCC hasn’t kicked in yet, and I certainly did not like the amount of pills required to take each day!

Total Stars: 4/ 5
