VICKS BabyRub Review

March 3, 2017

Hiya, rookie moms!

March didn't greet our family well either. Arya has a bad cough which might lead to asthma so we're really watching out for that. 

We took her to her pedia at FCHMC (Dra.Bucu) last Tuesday and she was prescribed with lots of meds. I also got seriously worried cos asthma runs in our family, I panicked and went to buy our own nebulizer. (Imma show it to you guys some other time in another blog post).

So, it's Day 2 today and Arya was having difficulty breathing at night. It's not normal for her to wake up in the middle of night so it really bothers me. I have this VICKS BabyRub for quite sometime now. I bought this when we went shopping at S&R before Christmas. It was a long time ago.

I'm a fan of VICKS too, I have a tub near my bed and I always rub it on my forehead whenever I have migraine or whenever I have nasal allergy (which is every night). So, I thought, maybe this one can help Arya too.

SCENT

The BabyRub version has a scent of rosemary and lavender. I looove lavender so the scent wasn't an issue for me. It also contains an extract of aloe vera so hat's plus points for me.

USAGE

The label on the box says: "For babies from 3 months. Suitable for children up to 5 years.
Avoid contact with eyes. Do not use directly on face or on broken or damaged skin. Do not use in mouth or in nostrils.

HOW I USE IT WITH ARYA

 I massaged the product on her chest, back, neck, and sometimes forehead. 

EFFECT

It does help her get through the night and helped her to easily doze off to sleep. I believe this variant is less strong than the original ones since I noticed that it is less sticky and the cooling effect does fade away after a few minutes, so I just usually reapply after 30 minutes just to make sure Arya sleeps better. 

Arya didn't had any bad skin reaction to it so that's plus points too. :)

I'm sure how this costs outside S&R. I think it was about P120.00 for 50 grams in a tub.

I do recommend this product if you're a fan too or frequently uses such products. But, as I always say, do consult your pedia first. For this one tho, we didn't consult our pedia. Hehe, I just use my instinct. *wink.

Xoxo,
Rookie Mommy PH - loooove VICKS
