works as well as you'd expect from this brand
what do I like - the fact that the menthol clears my sinuses so breathing becomes easier. The targeted nozzle enables the product to be directly aimed at where it hurts. By reducing the discomfort of a sore throat / irritation it reduces the need for 'reflex swallowing'. Brilliant
excellent service and prices
I have used this spray for several years now. Whenever one of us starts to get a cough and/or a dry throat we reach for the covonia straight away. It seems to work rapidly and prevents the throat from worsening.
