Not an abreva dupe, but still somewhat useful

Chloe - 3 days ago, Verified purchaser
As reviews have mentioned, this is not an Abreva alternative. This product does not have docosanol, which is the active ingredient in most effective cold-sore medication. The packaging is deceptive, Target does sell a medication with docosanol that is a good dupe for Abreva. So, if you are looking for the typical Abreva medication to rid of your cold sore sooner, this product is not for you. However, I use this product WITH Abreva and lysine to combat a cold sore. I use this on top of abreva after the abreva has set in. I have found that this product helps keep my lips moisturized and from further cracking/spreading, helps minimize pain, and helps cover the cold sore. This product does have menthol, making it tingly and can make your lips appear very red if you are sensitive. Do not use it if you are sensitive to menthol and do not tolerate tingliness from menthol. This is not a substitute for docosanol by any means, but it is effective in minimizing pain and ensuring moisture to the area. Everyone reacts differently, but this product for me is best used in combination with other products to quickly and effectively rid of cold sores and prevent recurrence.

I want my money back - 26 days ago
I bought this item in store. First, I thought that it was definitely a little bit costly for such a small bottle. Then when I drove home, it was expired before I could even use it and I live kind of far from target. Now I'm gonna have to drive back and exchange it, which is very inconvenient, I am just very frustrated

This does burn when I apply it but it goes away after 3 minutes, it’s not unbearable, it does have a smell but also not unbearable, i applied it 3 times today as directed and it has healed my cold sore significantly in the 12 hours i’ve used it, recommend if you can handle a little sting

I unfortunately trusted Target as I usually do. When I reached out for Abreva, I saw Up and Up, packaged exactly the same as Abreva for $5 less. I thought great! other Up and Up products work beautifully. I did NOT read the ingredients and the package does NOT say that it is the 'same as Abrevaac. But I like others who have commented, trusted Target. I learned my lesson... Trust but Verify. And a big thumbs down to Target marketing.

Anon - 2 months ago
I wish I could give this product zero stars I’m so disappointed and angry. I didn’t look at reviews because I bought in store and made the mistake of trusting Target. The one star reviews are right this product is a complete scam and shouldn’t be anywhere near cold sore treatment or state “cold sore treatment” on it as it has no ingredients that will help and only has irritating ingredients. Such a waste of $16. Do yourself a favor and buy the name brand.

Guys, if you read the ingredients list, it literally says menthol. So, yeah, it's gonna burn a little. BUT, if you can get through that, it feels like it's actually healing it just as well as the name brand would. And the menthol makes it feel like it's getting deeper.

If I could rate this zero stars I would! First of all, you need to poke open the tube, and when I did that 1/3 of the product came oozing out! 😠 And secondly, it BURNS! Not worth one penny, let alone $13. Buyer beware: 100% ripoff!

No - 4 months ago
Watch out: this does not contain the same active ingredient as Abreva, docosanol, the other package from the same Up&Up brand does. I should have read the reviews, like I always do, but anyway now that I tried I can confirm it is a big NO. First of all it burns like you are playing with an open wound because that is basically what this thing does, then you want to trust the process and keep using it for a second day but by that time you realize it only makes it worse and worse. Money waste.

My cold sore was gone faster with this product than when I used Abreva. The menthol creates a "stinging" sensation, so if you're not aware of the menthol, it can be shocking. I would imagine this would be painful if your cold sore has cracked or is dry.
