Product Review: Puffs with Vicks

When my three year old wakes up crying at night with a stuffy nose due to a cold, I will often put a dab of Vicks under her nose to help her breathe a little better. She hates the goey Vicks, though–she tries to wipe it off as soon as I put it on — nevermind that it really does help.

I was delighted to get a sample of the new Puffs with Vicks to try out. The tissues are lotioned which should really help with a bad cold when noses tend to get raw, and the smell of Vicks was strong enough to make my sinuses feel clearer. I’m not sure a nose-wiping with a Vicks tissue is quite as good as a dab of actual Vicks, but my daughter tolerated it much better. I was pleased with this product and would probably keep a box around for the height of the cold season at our house.

  1. I might have to try them. I think they would come in handy when my babies get sick. I wasn’t even aware there was such a thing. We always use the baby vicks or the cherry kids one.

  2. This is a great idea! I’ve also heard of putting the Vicks on the bottom of their feet. Haven’t personally tried it but I’ve heard it from several peple.

  3. I second putting Vicks on the bottoms of feet. We had a round of illness that resulted in the kind of cough that won’t stop. In desperation one night, I staggered into the bathroom and applied the Vicks. I’m not exaggerating when I say the coughing stopped within 5 minutes. It’s odd but useful information.

  4. I don’t know if they still make this product, but used to buy vicks vaporub patches when my youngest was little. I would wait until he fell asleep then sneak in and put the patch on his chest.

    It worked great.

  5. We recently tired Vicks on feet and it works!

  6. I am getting ready to do “My Favorite Things” (Jenn’s list) 😉 on my personal blog and I am including these! We *love* them! Everyone I offer one to loves them.

  7. I didn’t even know they were making those now. That’s a very clever idea!

  8. i use them every day and they are AMAZING. i have a purse pack, a pack for my locker, and two boxes in my bedroom at home!!
    anytime you have a cold, or your nose is just raw–BUY THESE!
