Vicks Mini Filter Free COOL MIST Humidifier: A Review

I was definitely excited to receive the Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier to review and I was even more excited to break the box open! As soon as I opened the box I could see that this wasn't my grannie's humidier from back in the day. The old humidifiers were bulky and ...let's say it...UGLY! The new cool mist humidifier from Vick's is actually pretty slick. It has a cute design making it easier to incorporate into your d├ęcor so leaving it out for guests to see is no worry. You will also note that this humidifier has a cute night light making it perfect for your kids' room (it's safe too since there is no risk of a burn!

Since I have told you a little about the design...I should probably tell you WHY this is a great thing to have around the house. To start, this little contraption can actually HELP KEEP THE FLU AWAY! Did you know that keeping the air in your home at a relative humidity level of 40-60%, reduces the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air? If that isn't reason enough, the use of a cool mist machine can not only help you breath better by reducing allergy complications and sinus issues but is also recommended by many doctors when children are heavily congested. Many years ago, I was told to the hospital with a congested child - a lot of money spent on the doctor visit only to have a night in the hospital prescribed. Luckily, I was able to use a home unit to reduce his congestion and got him cleared up quickly.

I also bet that you didn't know that this little beauty can be a part of your BEAUTY routine?  The use of a cool mist machine can help soothe itchy and irritated skin and even keep your lips from drying out while you sleep! Using forced air heating methods brings the humidity in your home down to about 10% BUT your skin wants things closer to 30% to stay healthy. Healthy skin not only feels better but it LOOKS better too - even the appearance of wrinkles are reduced!

This unit is very easy to use and will work all night long on one fill
up. It uses convenient scent pads and has no filter to remove, replace, or clean! BE SURE TO STILL CLEAN YOUR UNIT to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew!

Most of all, this machine packs a HUGE VALUE! They sell for about $39.99 and use very little energy so you don't have to worry about running it all the time. Check it out from Amazon!

I was given this unit to review from Vicks and Influenster but the opinions contained within are my own. I highly recommend this unit!
