Not good as it was

2 stars

Review from

The smell is not as strong as it use to be so it does not unblock your nose.use to be able to take the lid off smell it and your nose would be unblocked now you smell it and you think to yourself where is the was a nice strong smell but not now

Good itchy chest relief

4 stars

The smell of this really clears your blocked nose. If your rub it on your chest at night, you wake up feeling like you never had a cold. However it makes your clothes and hands extremely greasy, so I only recommend using it while you’re in your pyjamas or around the house clothes.

Was good now rubbish!

Review from

I use to apply Vick?s before going to bed and in the morning,8 hrs later, I could tell it was still working. Now I have to re-apply in the middle of the night. Too bad it changed. I would of paid more to keep the stronger vapor rub.

Never again - what a waste of money

2 stars

Review from

Had an old bottle of Vick's - it was super effective. But not this latest watered-down junk. I rubbed some on my chest hoping to help my bunged-up nose but I could hardly even smell it - I might just as well have used a mild hand cream instead. Eventually I washed the sticky stuff off and vowed never to waste my money on any Vick's products again.

Return to previous formula please

Review from

This product was a major part of my childhood. The initial notion that there may be someone with a cold in our household meant the Vicks came out. That strong aroma when the jar is opened has now gone. The strong Eucalyptus smell has disappeared, and also it appears has its effectiveness. Please go back to the original recipe, it worked and this just doesn?t.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!
