I am a huge fan of Vicks products when I get stuffy, congested or sick. Recently I got a Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler. I find the bigger humidifiers are bulky to lug around and you have to pour a lot of water into them. Although I like them and they work, I wanted to try a smaller version. This Steam inhaler has 2 settings and comes with some vicks pads you can put on a section of the machine. You don't need a whole lot of water in this machine either. They steam helps these vicks vapors get right into your system to start clearing up your nose and throat and lung congestion. The machine at the top is like face mask you could rest your face on and just breathe. As good as this feels, I don't suggest putting your face right on it though. It gets too hot to keep your face on it. What I do is leave my face just right above it so it does not get too hot and I still get all the good benefits from it. I love that is is compact and it is not heavy and that I can use it as long as I feel necessary. I also like that because it is smaller, it does not wet a big area like a big humidifier would, it just evaporates.
If you are one to get stuffy sinus or cold congestion, or frequent colds, this is a product you should invest in. If you have asthma like I do, this helps soothe the lungs fairly quickly. Although it comes with the Vicks pads, you can also buy more if you run out. I like this product and I think you will too if you try it.
