Ocean Nasal Care Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review several products from the Ocean Saline Nasal Care line.


About Ocean Nasal Care:
"The nasal saline brand most recommended by doctors and pharmacists-
Our non-medicated nasal products help you breathe easier by providing convenient, pre-mixed, easy-to-use nasal saline solutions for the entire family."

About the Sinus Irrigation:
"OCEAN Complete® Sinus Irrigation provides a convenient and easy to use two-in-one nasal saline therapy: a special nozzle for nasal sinus irrigation and a unique saline mist applicator for nasal moisturizing. Utilizing an exclusive non-medicated salt blend formula, the OCEAN brand nasal sinus irrigation system is safe for frequent daily use.
Two convenient delivery options in one great nasal irrigation product
The orange nozzle irrigates and liquefies mucus, clearing nasal passages, while the white nozzle provides a moisturizing saline mist to counteract dry climates.
When should you use OCEAN Complete® Sinus Irrigation?
-For general moisturizing during dry climates and cold temperatures, and while spending time in enclosed spaces (e.g., air travel, office buildings, etc.)
-To relieve allergy, cold & flu symptoms in a safe, non-medicated manner
-To help relieve congestion by thinning mucus
-To return moisture caused by drug-induced dryness
-To help reduce nosebleeds from dryness
-To moisturize and irrigate membranes following nasal surgery
-To relieve dryness associated with oxygen treatments and CPAP machines for sleep apnea"

About the Saline Nasal Spray:
"For more than 30 years, OCEAN® Saline Nasal Spray has been the non-medicated nasal brand recommended most by doctors. Since 1973 it has earned the trust of health professionals and millions of people suffering from chronic nasal congestion, sinus congestion, dry nose, and irritated nasal passages resulting from allergies, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, rhinitis, nasal surgery and more.
Three spray delivery options in one bottle
When held upright the OCEAN® Nasal Spray bottle delivers a fine mist. Held horizontally, the bottle produces a stream, and when held upside down, it delivers saline drops with a gentle squeeze.
When should you use OCEAN® Saline Nasal Spray?

About Ocean for Kids:
"Specifically formulated for newborns and children up to 12 years of age, OCEAN for Kids® Saline Nasal Spray provides instant, soothing relief to irritated nasal passages. The natural, non-medicated OCEAN® Nasal for Kids product has a smaller spray tip to fit smaller noses and contains glycerin for extra moisturizing, which results in less stinging and burning. Moreover, it is safe to use as often as needed, because it is drug free.

When should you use OCEAN for Kids® Saline Nasal Spray?
-For general moisturizing during dry climates and cold temperatures, and while spending time in enclosed spaces (e.g., classrooms, train rides, air travel, etc.)
-To relieve allergy, cold & flu symptoms in a safe, non-medicated manner
-To help relieve congestion by thinning mucus
-To return moisture lost due to drug-induced dryness
-To help reduce nosebleeds from dryness
-To moisturize and irrigate membranes following nasal surgery"

What we thought: Unfortunately, I suffer from frequent sinusitis and year round allergies. Fortunately, Ocean Saline Nasal care has an entire line of non-medicated relief for all of my sinus/allergy issues! I have tried several sinus irrigation methods and the Ocean Sinus Irrigation is definitely the most effective and immediate method I've tried. Seriously, instant results! I used this amazing product before bed and noticed a bit of a sore throat the morning after for the first few days, but after that, no side effects at all...and a minor sore throat was nothing compared to the pressure I felt before the irrigation...definite relief:) The Saline Nasal Spray is great too because you can use differently depending on the relief you need. I love that these products are safe to use on a daily basis and they really do provide relief without drying out your nasal passages. I also love that they have a special product just for kids that is a wonderful non-medicated option for when the little ones get stuffy, which is guaranteed to happen a least once this cold and flu season. If you suffer from allergies, sinusitis or colds during the winter season or any time of year, Ocean has a product to help:) ABCD Diaries gives Ocean Nasal Care an A+!
