The Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler works wonderfully for my stuffy sinuses. I love its ease of use. It is a great drug-free alternative for clearing and soothing your sinuses, whether from pollen, other allergens, or from colds. It is compact in size, and I intend to take it with me when I travel. It uses regular tap water,heats quickly, and has adjustable steam settings. My sinuses feel cleansed after I use it, and I can breathe much more freely, even on a high-pollen count day!

I first used my new Vicks Inhaler when I had a mild head cold. It was the type that gets worse at night.

I used it with a KAZ menthol disk, but unfortunately, it did not totally unstuff my sinuses. It did, however, relieve some of the congestion, but it did not last long after I stopped the treatment.

Maybe in the long run it helped, and it certainly felt good while I used it. I'm hoping it will help more with other problems like sore throat and laryngitis.

Not worth the price

Comments about Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler, 1 ea:

This product is only good if you really need to steam anywhere anytime. But if you're traveling and staying in a hotel, steaming with hot shower inside a bathroom is much better and more effective. Even at home. This steamer is ok. It's small thus gives out small steam and you have to refill water constantly. It's not worth the price.

    Comments about Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler, 1 ea:

    This product allows me to clear my airways of congestion
    without frying my eyeballs. I wish it had a larger well so
    that it could operate for 20 or 25 minutes without being
    refilled.

        Comments about Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler, 1 ea:

        My doctor recommended breathing steam in the shower and with my face in a pot and a towel over my head. This is much more practical. Well, the shower's good, too. I had a horrible sinus/eye/ear infection and this did help. If I used it more I'm sure it would have helped more.

        My only issue is that even on the lowest setting it gets too hot for me. I have to take a breath then pull my head back away and exhale, then lean in and take another breath, then pull back, etc. It almost burns my lips.

        I still think it's fantastic. I just have to be careful with it.

        Comments about Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler, 1 ea:

        I felt like an idiot bent over the bathroom vanity while "steaming" myself while reading the multi-fold instruction single, but after about 15 minutes, the steam vapors rehydrated the skin of my nose and surrounding areas that had become sore from earlier in the day. I didn't notice how clear my nasal area was until after I poured the water out of the base unit and exposed myself to the dry air again. It really worked, to my surprise - not drastic but for not taking any drugs, it's a good alternative.

          I really like the ease of use of this product! Everything is so simple to clean, and then reassemble. When I have sinus congestion, just 5 minutes breathing in the steam, brings relief!!

            I bought this product because I was using Zicam & Sudafed everyday. I would get congested throughout the day and particularly at night. I started using this machine everyday for about 5 minutes. Along with a sinus rinse once a week, now I am only using this machine once a week. I love this product!! It's easy and very relaxing. I even bought a case of the menthol pads to go along with it. Heaven!!

              This products works as described.It helps relieve my congestion,tightness in throat and it relieves my annoying allergies.I like this product it helps me more than even the doctors help me,because I can pull it out at anytime and use it for relief while a doctor I have to schedule an appointment and go wait to get the relief.I recommend it for anyone looking for relief of allergies and any other problem as it mentions.It works great!!!
