Good for soothing sleep, ineffective as a decongestant,
This review is from: Calpol Vapouriser Night Plug In & 5 Refill Pads (Personal Care)
I don't have a problem with the nightlight as other reviewers seemed to have. I actually find it to be soothing glow but I can understand how inconvenient it can be if your child is used to total darkness at night. At any rate, the nightlight is a non-issue for me but the effectiveness of the vapouriser is and I'm happy to say that, whenever I've used it for my toddler's colds, he always seems to have a more restful night. The vapours aren't very strong, particularly if you have a large, somewhat draughty bedroom as we do, but they're pleasant and effective enough to produce a soothing atmosphere nonetheless. If you're expecting, as I was, for this product to clear blocked noses and stop sniffles then you'll probably feel as disappointed as me (hence the 4 stars). The amount of camphor, menthol and eucalyptus are really not substantial enough to be effective as a decongestant.
