I purchased Vicks vapor rub and the inhaler and they both smelled like the off brand, freaking horrible. And this isn't the first time. I actually would like my funds back. This used to be a good brand to use. You know the saying "Ain't no school like the old school." Buuuttt i don't know. I mean what's really going on.

I bought some Vicks to help with my cold, and sore throat. My mom used to use Vicks on me as a kid whenever we got sick. This product has been around for over 40 years, and yet it still works just as well now as it did during my childhood. It's a great product

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I stand by Vicks brand. My mom used it, her mom used it, and now I'm using it. Rub this product on your chest to help with coughing. I also like to put a little on my lip under my nose with what's left on my hand after wiping my chest because it smells so good. This product is as reliable for me as it was for my grandmother. It smells wonderful and is very soothing for those coughing fits.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received this item a few weeks ago, and at the perfect timing while the entire family had a bug going through the house. I used the product myself and on the kids. No skin reactions, just beautiful relief. The only downside that I have to say, is that the smell is very strong, so everyone around you knows that you are using this item.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great to use at night when the cough is making it hard to sleep at night. Just rub a little on your chest and provides all the relief you need. This product is amazing and i was surprised at how well it worked. I used this on my older kids as well and they loved how much relief it gave them so quickly.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Vicks VapoRub has been a staple in my household for years. Containing menthol and eucalyptus, it goes to work fast on relieving cough and cold symptoms. I also like that it really works on soothing aching joints and muscles. I highly recommend every household have this on hand, especially during cold and flu season.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Vicks VapoRub is a handy product to have in the home. It provides relief when needing help to open up the airway passages to breathe. It helps to slather the VapoRub in the chest and throat area to help suppress symptoms. It is also good to alleviate pain and muscle soreness.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ive been using Vicks vaporub topical cough suppressant for a couple days every night due to muscle aches on my neck and shoulders, I apply a quarter size of Vicks and rub in well until it absorbs. I like the Menthol scent and thick and clear like petroleum consistency that makes it easy apply on my chest to help me sleep well at night because, I have a stuffy nose. I take a warm towel and wrap around my neck with the Vicks applied on my chest and neck and this helps me rest at night by soothing and helping me breath well.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You never think about ways to help your cough until you actually are confronted with a cold. That is where I found myself a few weeks ago. I had Vicks Vapor Rub and woke up in the middle of the night with congestion and a cough. Applied the Vapor Rub and within minutes was able to breath more clearly and the cough began to dissipate. Excellent product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When rubbed on one’s chest, it helps suppress cough as well as help with the ability to breathe when congested. I also discovered that it is effective at relieving muscle aches and pains due to its cooling effect.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like this vapor rub! It definitely helps open up the airways and calm down the cough. I don’t like using the style where you have to apply with your fingers as much, but that’s just a personal preference. Overall, it does what it’s supposed to! I do recommend.
