Return to previous formula please

This product was a major part of my childhood. The initial notion that there may be someone with a cold in our household meant the Vicks came out. That strong aroma when the jar is opened has now gone. The strong Eucalyptus smell has disappeared, and also it appears has its effectiveness. Please go back to the original recipe, it worked and this just doesn’t.

No, I don't recommend this product

Never again - what a waste of money

Had an old bottle of Vick's - it was super effective. But not this latest watered-down junk. I rubbed some on my chest hoping to help my bunged-up nose but I could hardly even smell it - I might just as well have used a mild hand cream instead. Eventually I washed the sticky stuff off and vowed never to waste my money on any Vick's products again.
