Review: Vicks Mini FilterFree CoolMist Humidifier

We have been so fortunate to not get sick very often around here. Maybe a handful of times a year one of us gets a cold. However, the new year started us off with a string of cold and flu-like symptoms for all of us. It was dreadful. Our poor old humidifier was huffing and puffing trying to keep up with us. We were moving it from room to room since we all needed it. I told my husband “we need a new humidifier, this one isn’t cutting it”.

That’s why I was so excited to try the Vicks Mini FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifer from Influenster! This thing is so compact yet efficient. It has a sleek, modern look, not bulky like our old one.


It’s cool-mist which is a must since heat would be a burn risk with my little ones toddling around. It is very quiet and only has a small light that glows in a dark room. Nothing too bright that would keep you awake.

I was able to read through the instructions quickly and set it up with no problems. I like that the water chamber isn’t so huge that I have trouble lugging it around. It is the perfect size to carry to the sink and fill up. The cleaning instructions were also fairly easy, requiring vinegar or bleach.

The soothing scent pads were also a surprising feature that I loved! You insert one into the chamber in the front of the humidifier and you are rewarded with the clarifying scent of menthol. Just like the Vicks vapo rub smell. It’s genius.

And last but not least it is filter free! Because who has time to remember to change the filter on your humidifier when you’re taking care of sick babies? Not me.

I think Vicks nailed it with this one. I am so happy with it and I know we are going to use it a ton. Thank you Influenster for sending me this product to review.
