It’s that time of year when we all start to get the snuffles, we feel shaky and get a nasty cough. I haven’t been so lucky this year and seem to have had one cold after another. Not really a problem to some but I have asthma and can guarantee that after a few days it will be on my chest and I will be coughing like a trooper for weeks. The worst thing for me is the blocked nose as I find that I lose a lot of sleep which seems to make me feel so drained and yucky. I have now learned that at the first sign of snuffles and congestion Vicks can completely alter the way I sleep and relax. VICKS VAPORUB ------------------------- The chances are ...

I grew up in a household enveloped in the smell of Vicks, my sister suffered from severe asthma pretty much from birth, and as a toddler and baby was too young to take the inhalers that were available at the time. So many a nervous night was spent replenishing hot bowls of hot water with Vicks melted in to ease her breathing through the night. After an hour or so the Vicks would start to form a film on top of the water as it cooled and solidified, like mentholy custard, and would have to be scooped off and renewed. You would think the memory associations would put me off Vicks, not a bit of it I love the stuff. As some of the ingredients in the adult Vaporub ... Read the complete review

I'm reviewing VICKS VapoRub. It costs between £3 and £4+ for the 50g jar , depending on where you buy it. Mine cost £3.29p in our local chemist. This is one of those things you can buy cheaper versions of , but I'm happy enough to stick to the original trail blazing version manufactured by Procter and Gamble . **************************** This is a thick ointment that comes in a tiny jar with a screw top lid. Once the lid is opened the fumes hit your nose immediately and you get the idea of precisely why this is so effective in helping to clear blocked sinuses, loosen congestion and ease the symptoms of colds.

I've been suffering with a terrible cold this past week, which I have found even more annoying than usual given the beautiful hot summer weather we're having. I already had a pack of Vicks Vaporub in my medicine cabinet and so I decided to use this alongside some of the other treatments to try and get an all-round fix. It's available to buy from many supermarkets and high street retailers, and is available in two different sizes, costing ~£3.00 for 50g and ~£4.00 for 100g. Product description: "Effective cold relief is in your hands. This product can be used with other medicines. VapoRub contains: + Menthol and camphor to calm a cough + ... Read the complete review

Recently I have had a run of bad luck with illnesses and injuries. Broken bones, cuts, bruises and illnesses seem to have constantly afflicted me since embarking on a new project with my husband and changing my career. This really is typical of life and recently I have been unlucky enough to have shingles/chickenpox for the first time in my life also. Days before my spots and marks first started to appear I started to get extreme tiredness, headaches and a sore throat. My sore throat soon developed to earache and a chesty cough to boot. Because of this I was using several different products, lozenges, this Vicks Vaporub, cough syrup and paracetamol as required. ... Read the complete review
