The Multifactoral Snorer

The Results
I needed the large size. Getting them in the right place take a little practice but they feel fine when they're on. It really helps you to breathe when you're congested or stuffed up.
Anna I thought we'd found the miracle cure when we started using these but three days later Chuck started snoring through the strip. It was less violent though, the strips certainly quieten him down and I borrowed them when I had a cold and couldn't sleep - they were excellent for that.

The Nose Snorer

Kim I like sleeping with the strips because they really help you breathe clearly but I don't like the way they make me look. In the morning my nose always looked wider and puffy.
Dave These were good. Kim can still manage a snore with these on but it's quite different to her normal volume and sound. They work pretty well.

The Throat Snorer

I felt like a right twit in my nasal strip. It's not uncomfortable though and I fell asleep pretty quickly with it on. It helped me breathe.
Rose I'm not sure this had any effect really. The sound of Richard's snores changed but it was still loud enough to keep me awake.
