Asda Vapour Rub
Advantages: Great price, works
For the last few days, I have had such a rotten cold that Asda vapour rub has been a massive help. It's not one of those 'everything hurts' kind of colds, it's one of those where you can't breathe through your nose and very annoying!
At about 10pm on Monday night, I'd had enough. So, off I popped to Asda (thank you 24 hour opening!) to purchase some vapour rub! Having a browse of the shelves, I decided to go for the Asda one because it was a more affordable price at £1 rather than the much more expensive branded version.
I tend to use vast quantities of this, I will quite happily stick a chunk in the shower when it's turned right up hot as it really helps! It's like being in a menthol sauna! As well as clearing your nose, it also helps that general "feeling rubbish" feeling that accompanies a cold! Also, I cover my pillow in the stuff, which definitely helps my ability to breathe at night! Wow, I must have been fun to sit next to at work the last few days!
Personally, I've not noticed any difference whatsoever between the branded version of this and the budget version. My mum has been busy telling me it's not as good as it's not as strongly menthol fragranced, however, I must say I've not noticed a difference. Although it may be something to do with me not being able to smell very much at all at the moment. So I would much rather buy the Asda version than the branded version, as it's much cheaper at a time when I'm sure we're all watching the pennies!
The appearance of this is exactly the same as the branded version, in a small blue pot with a green lid. It comes in a 50g jar, which is excellent value for the price.
If anyone is feeling rotten, I would highly recommend this product! I can't fault it in the slightest, so it gets 5 stars from me!
Summary: A cold essential!
