Preparing for the cold and flu season is essential, especially when you have little children. That’s why we’re so excited to bring you the Vicks Vaporizer review.

No mum likes to put their little one to bed when they’re unwell, especially when they’re having trouble settling because of a blocked nose or cough. All we want to do is provide some relief to our child so that they can get a good night’s sleep, and a Vicks Vaporizer can help with that!

For this review we will be sending mums the Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer and Vicks Double Strength Inhalant, that helps provide natural cold and cough relief for the whole family.

Household heating systems in the winter and air conditioners in the summer can rob the indoor air of its natural moisture. The lungs and respiratory tract are dependent on moisture to function effectively. The Vicks Vaporizer helps provide appropriate humidity levels to keep respiratory systems moist and healthy and helps relieve the mucous associated with cold and flu symptoms.

The Vicks Vaporizer helps relieve the symptoms of nose and throat congestion, coughs and a parched throat by thinning mucous and draining sinus passages. This clears the nasal passages for easier breathing and relieves dry, scratchy throats. Using the Vicks Vaporizer overnight ensures sleep is more restful with gentle, natural steam therapy. You can also have peace of mind in this product, as it’s won the Trusted Brands award for the Most Trusted Vaporizer/Humidifier for 2 years in a row – as voted by the Australian public.

    Great for those stuffy noses

    For almost 10 years now I have been using a vicks vaporizer and it doesn’t let down. It helps our family during the stuffy noses and just makes us feel human again and get a good night sleep. A must have for your family.

    saviour during the flu

    This has been my saviour when I have had the flu, running cold, congestion in my chest, and head colds. It is so easy to use. Smells fragrant(due to the vicks), portable, and easy to store. I am super happy with this product. I have used this for 4 years and have never had a problem before giving it away. It is long lasting and value for money.

    Works wonders.

    I have owned a vicks Vaporizer for a little while now. I purchased mine when my little one was sick and had an extremely blocked nose, which no other products were helping. The first night using it was just proof of how amazing it was. My little one slept so soundly that night and could breathe through his nose. So for every sleep and nap while he was sick with a blocked nose we used it. We always have a better night sleep then what it was like dealing without it.
    Very simple and easy to use, it also has great safety features such as turning off when its finished and has a light on it so you know where it is while it is working its magic.

    Fairly easy to clean and packs away nicely after use.

    Sleeping babies make this mama happy

    I’m back again as I’ve just uploaded my video. In a nutshell, I highly recommend as it really opens up their nasal passages and not be so congested. A sleeping baby makes me so incredibly happy. As a mum of four, when one gets sick it makes it’s rounds so if it can relieve at least one of my babes then it allows me the hands to tend to my other babes. I will be investing in a second vaporiser!

    It works wonders

    The vaporiser arrived at the perfect time, my baby girl had the sniffles and it was the perfect aid to open up her airways and help her breathe easier overnight, resulting in a sound sleep. I would highly recommend and have already done so amongst friends and family.

    Great

    We borrowed my mums as my oldest has asthma and we placed it into his room. He had the best nights sleep he told me the next day. He said he wasn’t having trouble breathing. He told me if we could get one to have in his room every night also. He said he found he wasn’t wheezy after using it and had so much more energy

    Missing my vaporizer

    I had a Vick’s vaporizer for years and I really enjoyed it. However, when it needed to be replacing I decided to try a diffuser instead and have been regretting my decision ever since. You notice right away when you have your Vicks Vaporizer going in a room. Definitely helps little ones with stuffy noses I would recommend this product to everyone. Its perfect and relaxing for all ages

    Amazing for the winter months

    This Vick’s vaporiser is amazing for the winter months. It has that nose clearing Vick’s scent to it. Great as a preventative for colds. It keeps the airways nice and clear. It has a very calm and relaxing feel to it. Perfect for little ones, especially when they are unwell during winter.

    Brilliant!

    We’ve been using this since we received it and I’m loving it. Although it is a little difficult to clean, it’s easy to use, the inhalant works a treat and smells so nice. It also doesn’t get too hot and creates the perfect amount of steam. I feel like it definitely makes kiddos sleep better even when they aren’t particularly sick.

    Great for colds

    I have had this product for about 7 years hasn’t missed a beat. When ever the children are sick with a cold we pop this on and use it untill they are better. Helps with their stuffy noses and can sleep a bit easier. It’s easy to use, we pop it on about 15 mins before they go to bed so their rooms are already full of the smell..

    Effective but noisy

    We got this when my little one had croup. It certainly steamed up the room effectively, though we’d been recommended it by the doctor for the warm air rather than steam, and the oil helped keep things clear for him. However it sounded like a kettle constantly on the boil and when it’s 2am and there are no other sounds that’s quite noisy and my little one kept waking so eventually we turned it off.

    Must have

    With 3 kids this bad boy has certainly had a work out over the years. We’ve definitely noticed a difference in a sick kids sleep when we use this. Even when I go in to check them it clears my sinus instantly. It’s easy to use and clean. Don’t forget to leave the window or door open a couple of inches to help prevent the condensation build up on the walls.

    Smells Amazing!

    I really enjoyed the smell that came from the vaporizer, it smelled so good and definitely helped with clearing stuffy noses. I put this on as my daughter was all blocked up and it helped clear her nose and she woke feeling better after having it going all night in her bedroom. It was easy to use however I found trying to empty any excess water out after use a little difficult due to the shape of the base. Maybe a drain plug would be useful.

    Vicks vapourizer 17 years old

    I bought my Vicks Steam warm Vapourizer when my son was only a few months old. He is almost 18 and I still use when either he or myself have a cold. Money well spent and I think it makes a great gift when someone you know has a baby

    Does the job but design could be better

    Have always been a fan of vicks prodcits all my life. We received the vapouriser from our baby shower and it woks.well in not only helping our little but us too when we we’ve got a sore throat or blocked nose. The only problem we have with it is it’s design, the white bowl base makes it really hard to remove old water and the whole machine itself is quite bulky

    Great for a restful night - could do with some design tweaks

    Having used the Vick’s warm vaporiser for a couple of weeks now, I am happy with the steam that it produces. It’s not too hot so while a child shouldn’t touch it, in the event that they do they shouldn’t be scalded. The warm steam combined with the inhalant provides a more restful night for my son when he’s congested.

    The only suggestion I would have is to redesign the plastic reservoir that holds the water. I found it a bit tricky to align the heating unit with the plastic notches and click it into place. It’s also hard to empty the last bits of water that is left after the unit switches off. Because of the shape, you have to shake the reservoir to get the water out.

    Other than those two points above, it does a great job of easing my child’s cold and would still recommend it as a useful tool during winter.

    Fresh air Vicks

    I love my vaporiser as it leaves the air fresh and a clean atmosphere. I have mine situated in the hallway under the stand and it always delivers a fresh inhalation that clears a blocked nose and opens up ones airways. I have used Vick’s for many years either as a rub or spray so I loved my vaporiser.
