Vicks Vaporub 100g £1 @ Quality Save

Found 8th Jan 2016
100g tubs were £1 each. Only stopped in the retail park (Regent Road, Salford) for petrol and a snack on our way into Manchester. So not sure if it's national and saw these on the shelves. Seems pretty cheap, sure I paid around £4 last time I picked one up from Boots.

I'm surprised people still believe this old myth with feet.

How and why would it work?

Even medicine doesn't work 100% of the time so I doubt anything that allegedly works every time.

Good spot OP!

Home Bargains supply Quality Save with their stock.

It might be a good idea to check Home Bargains stores too.

There was an article in the paper yesterday, about rubbing it into your feet. I googled about this afterwards, and found several forums where people were saying that this actually worked and that they had been doing it for years. My mum uses it on my dad's chest, neck and back as he gets really chesty in the Winter, however, I tried to tell her about this tonight and I think she thought that I was pulling her leg about it - she is 70 and my father 84 and neither of them had heard about this. Anyway, I might actually get some and when my little one has a bad cough/cold again, I might try this on him to see if it works.

I do this my son is an asthmatic and can never stop coughing on these winter nights even when iv done his inhaler. I rub this on his chest and back and then on to the soles of his feet and surprisingly he coughs less at night and has a fairly peaceful nights sleep.

It's good that the vick's helps but you're putting it on the chest and the feet. That's not a reason to believe that putting it on the feet helps in any way.

That's like saying to cure a headache, swallow an aspirin and rub another tablet on your feet.

Sorry, there is no evidence this product can affect your chest/breathing from your feet, just anecdotes. You can't immediately believe everything in the paper and on google and I can find plenty of things on google showing that this isn't true.

If it did work, the chances would be the menthol could be still reaching your nose but if you put socks on, like is commonly suggested, then even that can't happen.

Plus it's possible putting it on the feet could have consequences, particularly on sensitive skin, such as causing an irritation or rash.

If it was so effective, I would have thought Vick's would have done a lot of marketing and started recommending people apply it on their feet instead. I can't imagine what a new advert for it would be like.
great deal.. was £4.50 in boot recently
