It’s cold and cough season and for this supermum of seven (with an eighth on the way), Winter is one long rollercoaster of sniffles and snot. So she was the perfect Mouths of Mums member to put the Vicks Vaporizer to the test.

This is her review:

One of my biggest pet hates in winter is waking up with super dry eyes that feel like sandpaper thanks to our heater sucking all the moisture from the room.

No More Dry Eyes

Whilst using the Vicks Vaporizer a surprising benefit is not waking up with painful dry eyes. Oh my goodness the relief is so wonderful. Not having to remember to put eye drops in before bed (which of course is easy to forget when you’re a mum) is the BEST feeling.

Helps With Teething Symptoms

There are actually a number of benefits I found whilst using the Vicks Vaporizer which I would never have thought to use a Vaporizer for. Things like teething symptoms. The gentle steam was wonderful for soothing an irritated nose associated with cutting new teeth. My little one, who was absolutely struggling to find comfort at night, was able to fall into a deep and restful sleep.

So Easy To Set Up

When I’m unwell I really don’t want to be doing anything, let alone something complicated. Which is another HUGE benefit when it comes to setting up the Vicks Vaporizer. It’s so simple to use that even when my Dad visited us he was able to set it up easily without having to consult the user manual. It’s so straight forward to operate and you have the option of adding the Vicks Inhalant directly to the water tank, or to the external reservoir, or BOTH if you want to maximise the strength. Vicks really thought of everything when they not only made this awesome product safer for the whole family, but also so incredibly user friendly.

The Vicks Vaporizer Is The One To Pick!

To be honest, with all the different vaporisers on the market I wasn’t sure how the Vicks Vaporizer was going to be any different. But after trialling it with my little tribe I am more than confident in saying that this iconic brand which I have known and trusted since I was a child, definitely stands out from the crowd!

After using the Vicks Vaporizer, my eldest son and daughter no longer wake with congestion in the morning. Which is something the whole family experiences during the colder weather and due to the drying effects of the heater on our home.

More Clarity

Unlike with aromatherapy diffusers, the Vicks Vaporizer actually replaces the lost moisture in a room, which then keeps airways moist and healthy. As a result, my kids wake with so much more clarity in the morning! Less congestion makes for more alert children and a much smoother start to their day.

Family Friendly

I love that the Vicks Vaporizer delivers warm (rather than hot) steam which is so much safer around young children and prevents accidental steam scalds. You can definitely feel the difference.

If you’re looking for a gentle natural solution to support your family’s respiratory systems, clear congestion, loosen mucus and relieve coughs, cold and flu symptoms, then the Vicks Vaporiser is it! It’s even suitable for children under 2 years of age.

The soothing effects of the vaporizer lasts all night and it has an automatic shut off for peace of mind, incase you forget to turn it off yourself.

Effective, easy to set up and efficient no matter where I place it in the room, it is powerful enough to fill the entire space with the benefits of the wonderful VapoSteam.

Award Winning

It really is no wonder that Vicks has won Trusted Brands most trusted Vaporiser/Humidifier Award 2 years in a row. It is an amazing product from a truly trusted brand, and it’s even backed by a 5 year warranty.

Vicks have really outdone themselves with this fabulous Vaporizer, which combines all the elements I look for when selecting any product for my family – safety, user friendly compatibility and wonderfully efficient and effective at what it does.

I Highly Recommend the Vicks Vaporizer

I would recommend the Vicks Vaporizer to anyone, especially for families to always have on hand. After using it and seeing the huge difference it’s made to my family in such a short space of time I am confident that if you try it yourself, you will definitely notice the positive impact and hopefully get a more restful sleep!

  • Sounds interesting. I would love to give one a try


  • I’ve used Vicks for many years. The Vicks vaporiser is a new addition but a welcome one in winter


  • I love the auto shut off. My last one didn’t have that & I was always too scared it would run dry.


  • I am definitely going to give this a try, previous versions are not a favourite of mine but the warm steam sounds like a good one especially with auto shut off.


  • Mmm. I like the safety aspects of warm water and an automatic shut off.


  • Best investment I’ve ever made love this machine !


  • I’ve always wanted to get one but never taken the leap. I have a baby who will be teething soon so will definitely look at getting one to help her out


  • thanks for sharing – always wanted to get one of these.


  • I’ve never used a vaporizer before, maybe it’s worth a go.


  • We were gifted one of these even before bub arrived and it’s been money well spent for the gifter, no doubt! I don’t handle snotty noses very well and the thought of snot sucking … just nope. This little wonder really helped the most during bubs first winter where he was so congested and struggling to breastfeed and the winter after that during the yukky season it was a great aid with keeping the room warm and smelling good is a bonus! It’s something I don’t see myself passing on any time soon!!


  • Really great to read and also good to see so many benefits from one little machine.


  • I have something similar at home but never used it, I’ll give it a go.


  • Wow, 7 kids and another on the way. I dont know how people can do it, thats a lot of children. My downstairs plumbing is rough enough after just 2


  • This is good to read!


  • I like my vaporizer but this review is interesting to read
