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 diffusers 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!

  • This is good to read!


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


  • We use this all the time our all time favourite, even our 4yo daughter of feeling not so well will ask for the magic smelly machine. A must have


  • We have a Vick’s vaporiser and a diffuser and I can tell you that they both work the same…one is warm mist which make the air humid and mould growth can happen…the diffuser does the same thing replace moisture in the air but goes it with cool mist both are efficient in helping with colds and flu or anytime you need extra moisture.


  • Wow this looks good


  • Yes, fantastic machine, easy to work with however we feel ourselves. Thank you


  • Immersing an appliance in water is a ridiculous idea


  • Wonderful detailed review. Would be good for any young family who suffers with congestion and colds in Winter. Vicks is such a well known trusted brand.


  • I feel like I need one for me too (not just the kids) :)


  • I never knew it could help ease teething symptoms! I definitely need to buy a nee one!


  • I don’t own vicks vaporiser.But own different branded one. Always use when kids ill at night.


  • I bought ours when it was on special. It works the way it should although I find taking the top part off and getting it in place a bit clunky. I think they should have come up with a better design by now. Makes a great aromatic diffuser even it not using it for medicinal purposes as I love the aroma of eucalyptus throughout the room.


  • I didn’t use a Vicks vaporizer but have a humidifier to which I also add Vicks drops. I use it overnight as well and find it eases the symptoms of cold, congestion and upper airway infections. Like the Vaporizor it also reduces the dry air


  • Great review! It makes me more confident to use this with my kids.


  • This sounds like a very easy to assemble vaporiser. I like how it has warm air not hot especially when I have children around. I found this review very helpful especially because as I am looking to purchase a vaporiser.

    • Success finding the right one for your family :)
