Theraflu Sinus & Pain Hot Liquid Powder - Product Review

Monday, May 10, 2021

I received a complimentary sample of this product from Influenster in exchange for an honest review.

The timing of the #voxbox containing this was absolutely perfect, as I was dealing with a rather obnoxious cold. I have previously used multiple different products from Theraflu. The syrup is one of the most effective cold/flu medicines I have ever used. Unfortunately, it has become hard to find where I live, so instead, I use the powder packets when I have nothing else. My previous experience with the packets has not been great. I have only been able to find the berry flavor which tastes absolutely horrendous. I use the minimum amount of water I can get by with and then try to drink it as fast as possible so that I can drink something else to remove the awful taste from my mouth. 

I was unaware that there were other flavors available until receiving a #voxbox containing the apple cinnamon option. I was not expecting much, but I was running low on the cold medicine I had been using so I tried it hoping that it would help. Thankfully, the apple cinnamon flavor is much better than the berry. It starts out okay, but the more you drink of it, the more that awful aftertaste I mentioned earlier starts to appear. As for effectiveness: it is okay. I felt much better the day after taking it, but was it due to the medicine or the cold running its course? I don't know.
