Good for congestion but not so great as a pain rub

Vick Vaporub is a very useful thing in our house - when we have a chest cold we were able to rub on our chest to get those vapors working to help with breathing when congested and plugged up - my husband also has sleep apneia and uses a machine every night to keep his breathing in rythm - when he is congested and still has to use machine he would put vicks around the nose piece to get the vapors working as for the aches and pains of working and playing i do not feel this works like other gels for pain relief.

Helped my daughter sleep better!

I couldn't have received this product sample at a better time, as my daughter had came down with a could with some chest and sinus congestion. So, it was a great opportunity to try out the product. The Vicks VapoRub I remember using when I was a child, but never really noticed if it worked or not. I used it for several days in a row to alleviate some of my daughters congestion in order for her to have a sounder sleep. Do I think it worked? It seems to work pretty well. I think the only problem with it being a topical treatment is that if someone were to roll onto their stomach to sleep, the product is now essentially useless. Which, by the way, my daughter does ALL the time. She's pretty active in her sleep. I did try the product on my hands and ankles when I was having some joint pain due to shoveling some snow, but I did not find it worked for me. I think it is best suited as a decongestant. I think this product would be great for anybody of any age. The treatment didn't work for my aches and pains, but I suspect it would work for others. Overall, a great product that I would recommend to others.

Good product

Both my husband and I had a cold and used it at bedtime and found it helped us both breathe better over night. I also used it on my temples to help relieve my headache. I think anyone with a cold would find it good to use
