Top Tips (and Products) to Banish Winter Blues
1. Stock up to avoid late-night trips to the chemist
We all know the first rule of colds and flu. They are bound to hit your family as soon as you run out of medication. I swear this happens to us Every. Single. Time.
Someone will spike a fever and, of course, the Panadol bottle will be empty and one of us will have to go on a wild goosechase around town finding a pharmacy that’s open. Because the second rule of colds and flu – symptoms tend to be 1000% worse at night!
The More Care 4 Less Cost sale means you can save on all the medicine cabinet staples – Lemsip for sore throats, Vicks for congestion, Nurofen for pain, Brauer Baby & Kids, plus heaps more.
Buy now and be ready for when you do feel a sore throat or cough coming on. Trust us, you will be so grateful you did when those snuffles start to hit!
