Snuffle Babe Vapour Rub
Advantages: Effective on young children
Disadvantages: Not suitable for the whole family
It may be July, but me and my daughter have just recovered from huge colds. My daughter found it difficult sleeping so I asked my mum to drop round some vapour rub, she popped into Asda and picked up this Snuffle Babe vapour rub, I hadn't seen this brand before so was a little worried at how well it would work.
The vapour rub comes inside a white box with the product details on the back. You can tell that this product is designed for babies and small children due to the cartoon moon and tile letters on the front of the box. The jar inside is 24g and this will cost around the £2 mark.
After unscrewing the white lid you are instantly met with the menthol aroma of the rub. Looking at the rub it doesn't look very appealing as it is a dirty white colour, almost a musky grey. It has the same consistency of other vapour rubs, feeling greasy when you put your finger in it.
There are two ways of using this vapour rub, either smear a little of it onto a tissue and leave in the cot, which is probably the best way for smaller babies, or by rubbing a little rub onto the child's chest. I went for the latter option with my two year old daughter. After putting the rub on my daughter chest I found that she could breathe through her nose whilst she was asleep, thus giving us both a better night's sleep.
I also tried some of this rub after feeling the effects of our colds, however I didn't get the same results as my daughter. This vapour rub definitely isn't as intense as my usual Vicks rub that I normally use as I still had the blocked nose that had kept me awake several nights before.
I would definitely recommend purchasing a pot of this vapour rub for young children, it works well on their petite noses. However, if you are looking for a rub for the whole family, this isn't the one, it doesn't have any effect on me!
Summary: Good for younger children
