Vicks Vapor Inhaler
Advantages: Easy to use, quick working, long lasting, cheap.
Disadvantages: Inhaling too deep can hurt!
I have been suffering greatly recently with allergies, a cold, ear problems and basically everything else that is connected to ears, nose & throat. It is because of this that I have used numerous products to try and remove the stuffy, blocked up kind of feeling that I have been experiencing in my face!
The price of this inhaler was £2.30 just two weeks ago and I was quite surprised that this had risen about 50p since I last purchased one last year. Once I got over the initial shock I got to work using this straight away. This inhaler comes provided in a cardboard backing with a plastic front that allows me to see what I am buying and its one of those annoying packets you basically have to punch your thumb through to make a hole to open it up.
This is a small white inhaler and it has a white screw top lid that is basically the length of the inhaler itself. This is around the size of a lipstick and I love the handy size as I can just put this in my suit jacket at work and then discretely go and use it when needed without having to visit my locker just to get to my handbag.
To use the inhaler is very simple and it works just the same way as any other similar one to be honest. Just undo the screw lid, place this in to a nostril, cover the other nostril and then inhale quite deeply. I usually put this a good centimetre in to my nose before inhaling and I always use it on both nostrils just to ensure that my airways are as clear as they possibly can be.
This inhaler works very well, it takes just a few seconds to use and I can feel the relief almost instantly. Depending on how deep I sniff and how bunged up I am the results vary sometimes but I always find some relief from using this and quite often my airways feel clearer for at least 30 minutes before I feel like I need to use this again, sometimes even longer. Sometimes, if I inhale a bit too deeply, it can be a little uncomfortable so I usually just take cautious sniffs when using this.
Once I have used this I find that it takes hours before my nose ends up as bad as before and this is a fantastic way to clear some of the stuffiness that can come from having a cold.
Overall I must say that I am very pleased with this product. It works well at clearing my nose, the results last quite long and providing I don't inhale too deeply there is no problem at all.
Summary: An inhaler to clear my nose when I am feeling rubbish.
