    I have been using Releev for almost 10 years now and found nothing to compare. I get a couple of sores a year now - whenever there's LOTS of stress in life - used to be 8 to 10 before I found this stuff. I used to get sores repeatedly and couldn't stop the cycle. Now I don't have that problem. Now I still get some sores, but they're up in my nostrils and they go away in a couple of days. Anything outside, this stuff knocks out in a few hours!

    I have been searching for a cold sore product for years that is as fast acting as this one!!!It did not work in 24 hours but it did work faster than any other product I have tried in the past. I usually battle a cold sore for atleast a week, not anymore!! my cold sore started friday morning (i bought releev later on that day) by sunday it is barely visible. It's amazing!! I wil always carry this with me!

    HAVEN'T HAD A COLD SORE IN A LONG TIME, THEN THERE WAS THAT TINGLE SAT IN THE EVENING. COULDN'T GET TO ABREVA UNTIL LATE NIGHT BUT DID APPLY IT. WOKE UP SUN WITH A SLIGHTLY FAT LIP & THE BUMPS. USED ABREVA ALL DAY IT MADE IT FEEL A LITTLE BETTER BUT NO REAL IMPROVEMENT & WOKE UP MON WITH A VERY NOTICEABLE FAT SWOLLEN LIP & THE CRUSTY POCKETS Arrr GOTTA TO GO TO WORK LIKE THAT. RESEARCHED & FOUND RELEEV INFO. RAN OUT AT NOON BOUGHT & APPLIED IT & WITH IN 30 MINS STARTED NOTICING A DIFF LIP LESS SWOLLEN & AREA NOT IRRITATED? COULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE IT .. 2ND APPL REALLY NOTICEABLE, NO SWELLING, AREA EVEN FLAT & DRIED OUT. I ACTUALLY WAS ABLE TO FORGET ABOUT IT & FELT COMFORTABLE TO TALK TO PEOPLE AGAIN.. BY 3RD APPL ITS THERE, BUT HARDLY NOTICEABLE EVEN BY ME. HUSBAND WAS SHOCKED, HE GET THEM OFTEN. THIS STUFF WORKS & I REALLY FEEL IM IN RECOVERY MODE, WOKE UP TUES AND ONLY A MILD PUFFINESS(DONT KNOW WHY WHILE ASLEEP IT GIVES A FAT LIP),BUT NO CRUSTIES OR BUBBLY YUCKY STUFF.. LOOKS SCABBED OVER BUT AFTER THE MORN APPL IT'S NORMAL SIZED AGAIN.. I CANT SEE WHY ANYONE WOULD SAY IT DOESN'T WORK..OR WOULD CHOICE ABREVA OVER THIS MIRACLE STUFF. IT'S NOT GONE YET & DONT SEE IT GONE BY NOON TODAY (their 24HR claim) BUT ITS BEARABLE NOW & WORTH EVERY PENNY..

    CHaven't have one in years. husband get them all the time. but then that tingle in the eve comes but couldn't get to the Abreava for several hours & of course in the morning I wake w/a slighty fat lip. Used Abreva all day & cant really say i saw it speeding up anything. More like treating the systems & providing some releaf. Next day came & again wake up with a noticably fater lip & see the crustys..(now at the most imbaressing stage I look up treatments (gotta be something new)& see Releev reviews. So I run out & buy some & after one use i notice my fat lip alot less & even feels almost normal in size after 2nd use. Maybe I'm crazy or it's way to soon but I think it WORKS.. I started working away and actually forgot i have one.. which hasn't ocurred since i first got it. My hubby is going to be thrilled he get them all the time.. poor thing..

    I have never had a cold sore in my life. So when my four year old daughter got one for the first time, I was so confused about what to do for her. Her first outbreak lasted for about two weeks, and she was in so much pain. She didn't understand that she had to leave her hands off of the cold sore, and frequently scratched it open after it had started healing. Once that first one healed, I decided that we were going to find something to help her for the next outbreak. After looking through a lot of different product reviews, I settled on Releev. Particulary, because of the one day cure promise. My daughter is so little, and the faster I can relieve her pain the better I feel. About three months after her first outbreak, she had a second one. I immediately purchased Releev, and started applying it the recommended number of times daily plus some. That cold sore was completely gone in about five days, and there was significant reduction in the first 24 hours. After that, I put the product in the refrigerator like the directions suggested. Placing Releev in the refrigerator allows it to last longer and work more effectively than it would if left at room temperature for an extended period of time. The bottle is small, but it can definately treat several cold sore outbreaks before needing to be replaced. We've treated two outbreaks, and have more than half of the bottle left. Five months later, she had another outbreak. I am happy to say that this time her cold sore was nearly gone in the 24 hours. All that's left is a small scab. I think the best part, is that she was pain free within 24 hours. Also, since it worked so quickly she wasn't even tempted to scratch it open. I praise God for such a brilliant product, and I hope you give it a try too.

    Working in the Pharmacy, I recommend Abbreva constantly to my patients when they ask about cold sore treatments. Well, when one popped up on me, I went straight for Abbreva, and to no avail, it didnt work! that cold sore went away naturally, a few days later, another one poppedup, So I did some research, read some product reviews, and came to the conclusion I should try Releev. It's by no means a miracle cure, but it does what it says, and it does it quickly. Within 24 hours of my first treatment, I noticed signifgant improvement, im on day 3, and the thing is almost gone! I'm hooked. It's better than any RX i've ever used!

    Cold sore started Monday, several blisters by Tues morning friend gave me Releev when I got to work by Wed morning it was almost completely gone. Unbelievable!! I'm so happy. The ingredent in this product is the same as in CureChrome (walgreen brand $2.99) and Band-aid brand antiseptic wash at the same strength at much cheaper prices. Walgreens also has a cold sore remedy with same ingredient and strength for $12.99. There is enough in the Releev brand to last all year for me. Give it a try.

    one i and my sis get these cold sores at least once per year due to stress. there has been nothing out there that even comes close to this stuff. if i run out i call to see wear i have to drive to go get it. i think the other people who give this stuff a 0 review are from other companies because i have recommend it to several people and they were all shocked at how good it works.i would put it on every hr on the hr it works better that way at least for me.

    I have suffered from fever blisters since I was a teen. This stuff is great. It really works in one day. No open oozing sores that last for days.Use it as directed and you will be amazed. It is worth the price.

    I read all the comments before buying Releev and almost all were positive so I gave it a try. I have had cold sores on and off my whole adult life and have tried everything. Nothing worked except for Zovirax cream but you need to get a Dr. script for that. As soon as I felt the "tingle" I ran to Walgreens and bought Releev and OMG! it burned and my cold sore started turning bright red. I had to wash it off to stop the burning. I went back to Neosporin but the next day when the blister was fully developed, I tried Releev again because I couldn't believe that it worked so good for all those other people and not for me! This time it didn't burn at all and when the liquid dried, the pain went away. Also, the swelling and redness started going away. Now it is 12 hours later and I have been applying it every couple of hours and it's almost gone. You can still see where it is but it has shrunk down to my normal lip size so I don't feel like the elephant man walking around my work place! This is remarkable and to think I was going to return it. I am so glad I gave it another try...I guess some people (including myself) just have sensitive lips and can't use Releev during the inital breakout stage but PLEASE give it a day and try using it again. Obviously, you won't be sorry because you will look normal again...faster!

    I just rub a drop into the area at the first sign of a cold sore about to happen. When I catch it before it erupts, then it never happens. If I don't get to it in time and I get a cold sore, I apply Releev and it heals in just a few hours. The bottle has enough to last me a whole year not like other products. I can't think of anything not great.

    Ive been getting cold sores since Ive been 5, have tried every cream ever made, this product has done nothing with the two cold sores Ive gotten since wasting my money. Stick with abreva.

    First of all, let me ask... Where the heck is the commercial for this product? I have never seen it advertised. I just happen to see it in the drug store. I tell you now, I would do a commercial for this company in a heartbeat. IT'S AWESOME!!! I am a 25 year old female. I have had cold sore outbreaks since a kid as early as I can remember. I tried using everything imaginable and nothing would help me. Going to school was embarrasing and even after being grown and married, I still never wanted to go in public with an outbreak. My outbreaks were not just simple. Where there was one sore, there were 10. At times they have covered my whole mouth and I would be swelled up so bad. I would be in so much pain, I would cry. My first time using the releev was in 2006. I will never buy anything else. This medicine is the best. Since the first time using it, I have never hardly gotten past the tinlge of a sore. It stops the sore in it's tracks. God bless the maker. You are a genius! If I heard that this product was coming off the market, I would go and buy every bottle I could find. It would be worth every dime.

    I have been using releev for about a year. I use to have bad blister outbreaks but now I have very few and minor outbreaks. My husband also gets frequent outbreaks that use last for days, now they last for a day or two. I also gave some to my co-worker who had terrible outbreaks and now she has minor blister outbreaks and they resolve within a day or two. It's the best I have ever used.

    This product works, I don't know about the people who didn't get results, I just know it works for me. I was a frequent cold sore sufferer, 12 per year. Since I started using this product I have not had one cold sore. I shake well and apply it at the tingle and the blister does not appear. I have used all the popular cold sore products and none of them gave the results this product does. I highly recommend it.

    I get mild coldsores, barely there cold sores, and after using this product I had the worse cold sore, and I noticed it spead. It asks you to gently rub the product in and wash hands, but this only spreads the cold sore and causes it to become even more irritated. I do not recommend this to anyone it is not worth the [$]

    Absolutely the biggest waste of money in the history of medicine. I've never had a cold sore and was thinking this may work as it was billed as a 1 day treatment. I'm on day 6. [...]

    [...] Releev has been a miracle cure for my cold sores and for the friends to whom I introduced the product. Worth its weight in gold! instantly relieves the progression of those oppressive cauliflower-like clumps wherever they crop up.

    I have tried to use this on my last 3 break outs and it didn't work on a single one, each one still lasted over 10 days. This product does not work, it was so expensive I kept giving it a second chance. I do not believe there is a single thing in this product that has any medicinal benefit what-so-ever.

    This is the only product that I have used that works. My outbreaks are not consuming my face like with other products. Start applying at the tingling stage combined with excederine for the fever get plenty of rest and your outbreak will not be as devasting as past guaranteed. Once you try it spread the word. I'm very thankful that this product is on the market.

    I tend to get cold sores very often, and this has been the best product thus far. I have used many medicines and this healed it the quickest. A very helpful [...] employee who also suffered from cold sores, suggested also taking a vitamin name Lysine in which you find in most cold sore medicine. Between the vitamin and the releev it was cleared up in a day or two.

    Best product ever. I got my cold sore on aTuesday and by Saturday it was all better. Releev doesn't leave a grease film on your cold sore, it dries up quickly.

    I applied it 5 hours after the tingling right when the blisters were starting to form. Total healing time was 5 days. I followed the instructions exactly as written on the insert.I was most impressed with how soothing it was. After the initial mild tingle during application, the discomfort almost immediately went away for hours. This was the first time that I had no cracking, bleeding, or any discomfort while eating.I plan to use it again the next time in hopes it works faster. I think it is slightly overpriced, however it is the best I've found so far in terms of actual relief after the blisters scab over.

    I bought this product when I had a huge cold sore and it started working right away. It took about a day to dry up but when I started to feel a cold sore coming on I put a small dab of this on it. It relieved the tingling sensation immediatly. And then I forgot that I even had a cold sore coming on the next day. Amazing product. It is a bit expensive but is worth the money.

    I never write reviews, but I wanted to for this product. As soon as I feel one coming on, I apply this product and then it never pops up! It works way better than abreva for me.
