My First Cold Sore Experience #sponsored

How I Handled My First Cold Sore Experience [sponsored]Cheap Is The New Classy

After I met Dawn and Amber, it was only a few months afterwards, that I discovered that they both were prone to cold sores. At that time, I had never had a cold sore in my life. Ever. We have lived together for over ten years now and I still had not ever gotten my first cold sore, until about three weeks ago. Both Dawn and Amber had said that they could tell when a cold sore was coming on by a tingling sensation in their lips. I felt said tingling sensation and thought to myself, “Am I getting a cold sore?”

How I Dealt With My First Cold Sore

Of course I brushed off the notion, since I had never had a cold sore, until a couple of days later when, lo and behold, Dawn asked me, “Do you have a cold sore?” Sure enough, there it was, plain as day. I am over 40 and have never had a cold sore in my life. Neither of us could believe it. My lip was sore and, lucky for me, Lip Clear had just sent us a Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment Pack for Dawn to review. Talk about timing! So, I decided to review the kit myself. I grabbed the tube of Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment and, using a clean finger as to not spread the germs, I applied a small amount to my cold sore. Then I washed my hands again after application.

Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment
Lip Clear Lysine+ products are made with herbs and vitamins, “inspired by nature.” I think that’s a good thing, personally. I don’t want some strange, hard-to-pronounce chemical on or even near my lips. Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment is designed to relieve the pain, burning and itching of a cold sore. The Cold Sore Treatment also cuts the healing time for a cold sore in half, compared to an untreated cold sore.

The one thing that Dawn said was the worst about a cold sore was the tightness and I agree. It feels like your lip is going to split in half. After experiencing my first cold sore, the tightness is what bugged me more than anything. Within minutes of applying Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment, that was no longer a problem. The burning and itching stopped right then and there, too.

Lip Clear Invisible Cold Sore Bandages
We also received some Lip Clear Invisible Cold Sore Bandages, designed to conceal cold sores as they heal. My lip started bleeding one night so I decided to use one of these bandages to protect it while I slept and the cold sore had healed quite a bit overnight. You could also barely see the bandage and I did nothing to conceal it. However, if you would like to conceal it completely, watch the helpful video above to learn how. I would definitely use these again.

Lip Clear Lysine+ Lip Treatment And Protectant
We also received Lip Clear Lysine+ Lip Treatment and Protectant with SPF-21 Sunscreen, which I will save for Dawn, because she suffers from the worst chapped lips in the house, poor girl.

How I Handled My First Cold Sore Experience [sponsored]

Thanks to Lip Clear, I really have to say that my first cold sore experience was not that big of a deal. I have heard how much Dawn and Amber have talked about how painful and annoying cold sores are, so I would have to say that my experience with a cold sore was not all that bad. Being honest, it may have been that my cold sore wasn’t a bad one, but I like to think that Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment did it’s job and made my cold sore experience easier to deal with.

I was very glad to have the Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment on hand for my troubles and I am recommending it to all of you who suffer from cold sores or fever blisters. Don’t let a cold sore ruin your Valentine’s Day. Keep your lips smoochie with Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment.

  3. I’m very prone to cold sores and one of my daughters is also prone to them. I need to try the Lip Clear products the next time I feel one coming on.

  4. Cold sores are so awful. I just hate how ugly they are and that they take such a long time to go away if you don’t use a great medicine. Will have to keep Lip Clear on my radar.

  14. I have been extremely lucky in the fact that I’ve never had a cold sore. My husband on the other hand has gotten them since he was a kid.

  15. I get coldsores quite frequently (although not as bad as my mother) I use blistex and it works wonders.

  16. Cold sores seem awful! Luckily for me I have never had a cold sore but if I ever do I’ll know what to get for treatment.

    This is great information for those that get cold sores. I get them sometimes and it can be very irritating. I am going to have to try the Lip Clear Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment. The Lip Clear Invisible Cold Sore Bandages sound like something I will have to try too. Thanks for sharing the information.

  22. I have never had one, and I hope I never do. But I will definitely have some of this on hand.

  23. wow! this is unique, I watched the video, you place the clear like tap on and leave it on, so you have a smooth surface to add makeup? right??? what a great idea, I have had a cold sore but it would be great to use this to cover up a nasty pimple too :-

  24. Cold sores can definitely be tricky to deal with. It looks like you found a solution that works well. Thanks for sharing your experiences and tips!

  25. Cold sores are no fun and my husband experiences them more than I do. They can be really tricky to deal with and like to come at the worse times. I will be checking out these products for him.

  26. Cold Sores are the worst! I always new when I was getting them, its usually the same time as a cold or when I was really stressed out. Thankfully I don’t think I’ll ever suffer from them again thanks to prescription from my doctor that stops them all together. I’d get them in two places, either on my lip or on my nose. The nose one took the longest to heal and it was just embarrassing.

  27. Desperately touching wood as I am writing this but so far I have never had a cold sore before but my dad gets them all the time bless him. He uses different ones and some work but others don’t, I will tell him about this one the next time he has one so he can give it a try

  33. I got one for the first time in ages and ages a few months ago and it seemed like it was never going to go away! I could have used something like this then.

  34. There is something for everyone and that is always a good thing. I’ve never experienced cold sores but it is great to know you can run to your local store and get a quick fix.

  35. Sherry Compton says:

    Cold sores are awful. They look horrible, feel horrible, and you feel like everyone is staring at it. How nice to have a product to combat them.

  38. ellen beck says:

    Have you ever had a cold sore? Yep! I generally actually get them from the sun. If my lips get too chapped or blistered it will trigger a cold sore.

    Hello everyone, this is serious. My Brother of 39 years who has suffered of COLD SORE for 1 and half years has been cured by a Herbal doctor called Dr. KEN who uses herbal and traditional medicine to cure people. I have spent so much on my Brother’s health paying hospital bills for years but no improvement. A friend told me about this herbal man who cure people with herbal medicine. He cures all sickness, diseases, viruses, and infections with his different herbal curing medicine.
    The result that declares my Brother Roland healed was from a hospital here in New York, And the results of the test says my brother was okay. Dr KEN directed that my Brother would be okay in 21 days if he uses the medicine as directed. And 21 days later, we went to confirm it from the central hospital and several test that was done says my brother is fully healed. So he was cured by this herbal doctor in 21 days. This amaze me though. I would advice everyone to meet this Dr KEN who made my Brother healthy again.
