Reactine Product Review and Contest!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year; we all know the familiar refrain from the back-to-school commercials, but for seasonal allergy sufferers, it can be one of the most difficult times of the year. From ragweed to dust, leaves and mold, fall can be one of the most challenging allergy seasons. And as anyone who suffers from allergies can tell you, the symptoms can be enough to keep you indoors, even on the nicest of days.

So for those of us who want to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather without the painful symptoms that come with allergies, what can be done? The Go2Girlz testing panel recently sampled Reactine Extra Strength allergy tablets to see if it was up to the task of providing relief from their seasonal (and year-round) allergy symptoms. Reactine Extra Strength provides fast, effective, long-lasting (can start to work in 20 minutes and last for 24 hours) relief of itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion/stuffiness, itchy nose and throat, post-nasal discharge, sneezing, and runny nose caused by seasonal and perennial allergies, and itching due to allergic skin reactions, such as hives as well as relief of allergy symptoms caused by ragweed, pollen, grass, dust, pets, and mould. Our testers were asked to sample Reactine every day, as regular daily use relieves allergy symptoms to help restore your normal quality of life.

Our Go2Girlz testers were unanimous: Reactine Extra Strength is a product that lives up to its promises. Everyone experienced quick relief of their symptoms that lasted a full 24 hours without causing drowsiness. A few of our testers with very severe symptoms did not experience complete relief, but found that their allergy symptoms were significantly lessened; while others found that a half-pill was sufficient. All our testers said they would recommend it to a friend, and would buy it again themselves.

Here’s more of what the Go2Girlz had to say about Reactine Extra Strength:

It was recommended to me by my doctor so I had great expectations.  Thankfully the product lived up to them!  It was great, worked quickly and was easy to swallow. — Stephanie, mom of 1

Excellent! I was really suffering from seasonal allergies with the additional complication of heavy smoke from local forest fires – one Reactine kept me feeling symptom-free all day. — Kate, mom of 2

It works on seasonal allergies, and covers all of my symptoms. — Julie, mom of 3

It works! — Barbara, mom of 1

It is long lasting, keeping symptoms at bay and allows you to enjoy being outside with the kids! — Karmen, mom of 2

After taking one, early in the morning, I can actually function! — Sarah, mom of 1

The tablets are small enough for even the fussiest person to swallow.  It lasts 24 hours so you don’t need to worry about carrying extra in your bag. — Jodi, mom of 2

It works really fast, usually within 30-45 min you can feel results, it is non-drowsy which lets you stay alert and function normally — Tracy, mom of 2

From an allergy symptom point of view, yes, this can be the most difficult time of the year. But Reactine and Staples would like to give you an easy button, so to speak, to help make this a little more like the most wonderful time of the year. It’s in the form of a $50 gift card to Staples!

    My life would be easier if the house would clean itself, wonderful meals would magically appear, and there were more hours in a day! I would love more time to play with my 4 year old without having to tell him “Sorry Sweetie… Mommy’s busy” fifty times a day! Oh… and I’d love to have even an EIGHTH of my son’s non-stop energy — that would definitely make my life easier. ;0)

    My life would be easier if I had a personal assistant – a cook and personal trainer esp!

  • Dianne

    I think the one thing that would make my life easier would be to have a stable job, in the last couple of years I have been laid off a couple of times due to work shortage in my field. So having a stable income would just make everything else in my life easier. The only other thing would be to win the lottery but I think you have to buy tickets for that.

Currently, she uses my computer in the evenings (when she’s done her homework) to be on Facebook with her friends, and by the time she’s done, I’m ready for bed as well! If I win, I’m thinking I’ll use that $50 Staples gift card towards a laptop … or maybe I’ll keep the laptop and give her the desktop …hmmm …
