Reviews
Vicks VapoRub Cough Suppressant/Topical Analgesic, Ointment, 3.53 oz (100 g) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful scent evokes childhood memories I have no idea whether Vicks Vapo-Rub has any truly medicinal properties. wouldn't even try to get through any upper-respiratory tract ailment without it. My mother and grandmothers used it liberally on me when I was a little Kid, so now that powerful scent is irrevocably linked to feelings of being safe, warm, loved, cared-for, and getting better. And that's half the battle, right there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring Back the Old Formula Like others who have posted, something has definitely changed with VapoRub. It doesn't smell as strong. It has been posted that the formula hasn't changed but all of us couldn't be wrong. The nose knows. And while I'm writing, please bring back VapoCream. It was so much more pleasant to use. Had I known it was going to be discontinued years ago I would have bought it by the case. Pat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pregnant and desperate I am 18 weeks pregnant and have had a horrible case of bronchitis for the past week. There is very little I can take that is safe for the baby so I haven't slept very much and am miserable from coughing. Today, a friend suggested I use Vick's VapoRub and I am SHOCKED at how much it has helped control my cough and soothe my irritated airway. THANK YOU for this awesome product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is not effective. I've read a response from Vicks to another reviewer that stated there have not been any changes to the formula in recent times. However, there have obviously been changes since I used it years ago. I did not find it near as soothing nor as strong, so did not find the rub effective. It's also expensive for what it is, so I returned it to the store where I purchased it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the old school Rub I have to say the effectiveness of this product is lame... Guess I will have to try another brand after all these years. Quite disappointing after growing up with this cure all product. Not effective at all. I can get relief with simple steam now. Looks like another good product sell out...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using Vicks my whole life since my mother used it on me as a child. I would like to suggest also that you make a stick or something that can be rubbed on without getting the hands all greasy. I still use it with plastic gloves but the other way would be so much easier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from used to be the best...but slipped what's happened to vapo rub? i remember growing up as a child, when you used vapo rub at night or during the day the vapors would last longer and were strong enough to open you sinuses and chest and provide better breathing. you guys are really slipping with this weak stuff.
