Snuffle Babe Vapour Rub
Advantages: Worked well for younger baby, easy to use, smells nice
Disadvantages: Feels greasy, didn't work on older baby
When my eldest daughter was a baby she got her first cold at just over 3 months old and so being a new mother and not too sure what I could do for her I went to our local chemist for some advice. One of the things the chemist suggested using for her was Snufflebabe. Snufflebabe currently costs £2.20 for a 42g tub.
Snufflebabe comes in a white box which has snufflebabe written on the top in white lettering and each letter is on a different coloured tile across the box, there is also a moon asleep with a smile on it's face with a dark blue background and a couple of stars. I think the packaging is very effective, it stands out really well and it draws in your attention. The bos tells you that this product is suitable for babies over 3 months old.
The active ingredients in snufflebabe are, Eucalyptus Oil (2.0%ww), Menthol (1.5%ww) and Thyme Oil (0.5%ww).
Inside the box the product comes in a small glass jar with a white screwtop lid on it, on opening the lid you can smell the menthol vapours. The product itself is a mucky white/grey in colour and is really thick and greasy, to use put a small amount on your fingers and then rub into your babies chest and back for relief from stuffed up noses.
I found that snufflebabe worked well for my daughter and she copuld get a good nights sleep which was great for us however when I tried the same product with my younger daughter whop was one last year when she had a cold we found that it didn't work quite so well and she needed something a little bit stronger so we ended up with Karvol. I would say this is a great product for young babies but found it not so much for babies a little bit older. I will rate this four stars as it is a really good product but it is greasy which is a horrible feeling on your skin and it doesn't always have the desired effect.
Summary: Good for young not so much for older
