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.
