People are saying Primark eye mask is a ‘miracle’ cure for hayfever

Perfect for Manchester’s pollen bombs

Published

People have been rejoicing over Primark’s new cooling eye mask that allegedly alleviates all symptoms of hayfever.

Now, the pollen here in Manchester must be on steroids this year, because all those living with hay fever have been downright miserable this last month.

Yes it’s sunny, yes the beer gardens are back open – but when your throat is scratchy and your eyes have swollen up to the point you can barely see, it takes some of the fun out of those summer antics. 

So, while the usual antihistamines aren’t even scratching the surface this year, some social media users are claiming that there’s a miracle cure elsewhere –

Primark.

Yep, the bargain retailer apparently has an eye mask that provides almost instant relief for those pesky hay fever symptoms.  

A TikTok user shared a video of her testing out the mask last week, writing: “Everyone with hayfever needs one of these, you put it in the freezer, so good.”

The video has since been viewed nearly 700,000 times, and has garnered over 50,000 comments from desperate hay fever sufferers.

So, how does it work?

Well, all wearers need to do is keep the gel mask in the freezer for optimum coldness, and then fasten it around the eyes to provide some dreamy cooling relief. 

For a slightly more scientific explanation, the cooling mask acts as a compress, constricting blood vessels and subsiding inflammation, meaning itchy eyes will feel soothed.

Some people even explained that the gel masks have helped them with other health issues, with one TikTok user writing: “I have [this] for my migraines. I love it.”

The mask is priced at a very reasonable £2.50, so you won’t be breaking the bank to get some much-needed relief this summer.

Winter? Lindt have completed it

Lindt UK

Some fantastic winter news for you all to sink your teeth into: The famed Lindt hot chocolate is finally available to purchase in the UK, and it is just as delicious as we’d all imagined.

The Swiss chocolatier has always ranked highly in the opinions of chocolate-lovers here in the UK but, sadly, its hot chocolate blend has always been notoriously difficult to get hold of.

Well, until now it has been, that is.

Lindt

Yep, British chocolate-lovers can now get their mitts on Lindt’s hot chocolate, a blend made with only the finest of their Swiss chocolate. 

The chocolatiers wrote of the UK launch of their iconic drink: “Cosy up with a mug of rich, velvety Lindt Hot Chocolate. Luxuriously thick and full of flavour, just add your preferred choice of milk to create the ultimate silky-smooth winter warmer.”

And, even better yet, the drink can be enjoyed cold if you’re fancying something a little more refreshing next to a warm open fire. 

Lindt UKWIN

I can imagine there’s one question burning upon your lips right now… Where can you buy your own tub of Lindt hot chocolate?

Well, Amazon are the ones dishing out the goods for £4 a tub which, in my honest opinion, is a small price to pay for chocolatey winter comfort.

Get your own here.

‘Flatulence-filtering’ bedding is now a thing to mask the smell of farts during the night

This could be a lifesaver for some couples…

If you or your partner (because let’s face it, it’ll definitely be them) has a real issue with farting in the middle of the night, this product might be the one for you.

Flatulence experts Shreddies – not the cereal brand, I promise – has unveiled it’s latest fart-combatting product, the ‘Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover’, which promises to completely eliminate those unsavoury fart smells throughout the night.

The duvet cover includes an inbuilt carbon panel to trap flatulence gases before they escape through the bedding – all you have to do is simply insert your own duvet into the cover and your gases and aromas will be discreetly filtered as you sleep.

Shreddies

The porous carbon ‘attracts and traps flatulence odours’ and, worry not, because it is simply reactivated when washed.

Shreddies also sells a ‘Carbon Undersheet’ to accompany the revolutionary duvet cover if you’re in need of double filtering – the sheet is designed to fit snugly around your mattress and, like the bedding, absorbs all those nasty odours while you sleep.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Both products use the same technology found in our award winning underwear, the highly porous carbon acts as an adsorbent which attracts and traps flatulence odours and is simply reactivated when washed.

“These brand new products are the latest in a long line of successful odour eliminating products that Shreddies brand is known for including their patented underwear, undershorts, cushions and odour eliminating bags.”

Shreddies

The bedding sets don’t come cheap, however; the duvet cover is priced from £180 dependent on size while the under-sheet starts at £110 – but I suppose an odourless night is priceless in the long run?

These products have come following the success of Shreddies’ famed ‘Flatulence Filtering Underwear’, which do exactly what they say on the tin; filter out the smell of farts. 

The company also stocks flatulence eliminating cushions, bags and gifts, just incase you know someone who can’t take a hint.

Just when you thought Christmas 2021 couldn’t get any better, Aldi has unveiled their latest alcoholic beverage offering: a glitter globe gin liqueur.

Now, despite it only being October, Aldi has already been knocking it out of the park with its festive offerings; just this week, shoppers have been delighted by the return of the iconic halloumi pigs in blankets – chunks of halloumi wrapped in bacon incase you missed the memo.

But now, the budget supermarket has really ramped up the Christmasy vibes with the arrival of its glittery snow globe gin liqueur.

And guess what? It’s a whole £6 cheaper than Marks & Spencer’s version.

The retailer is aiming to repeat the success of its glitter globe gin range that was launched in the spring with flavours such as elderflower and peach.

The production description for this range read: “Lovingly distilled in only small batches by The Infusionist, this mouthwatering peach and elderflower flavour gin liqueur with 23-carat gold flakes has flavours of fresh peach and floral notes of elderflower and juniper. Try cold and neat or with premium tonic and ice.”

But in the new festive range, shoppers will be able to choose between clementine or sweet blackberry flavours, both of which come in a light-up bottle infused with flecks of edible twenty-three-carat gold leaf – it doesn’t get much more Christmassy than edible gold, does it? 

The 70cl bottle will be priced at £13.99 and will be available to buy both in-store and online from November 8th.

Head over to the Aldi website to order your own bottle (or three), or find your local Aldi store here
