How or does "Silent Snooz" work? Snoring Product Review Number 1
My other half says that I snore. So, I decided I'd to try Silent Snooz (one of 2 products I've reviewed for snoring)
Why Silent Snooz?
I bought Silent Snooz because I'm a sucker for cute advertising words . The amazon ratings weren't too bad: at the time of this review, it's averaging around 3.5 stars out of 5( mmm)
The local drugstore price was about 6.00 dollars for a product that lasts 30 days. The container box gives the impression that you get more than one snooz thingee. ( I call it thingee throughout this review) You receive one transparent rubber looking thingee( note: it is not made of latex. It just feels rubbery and flexible) Also you get a round blue pill box for storage.
I think I know why it got a 3.5 star rating instead of 5. The direction for usage isn't clear. It says to pull the prongs slightly apart and put the thingee in the base of the nose. Now here's the problem: it doesn't tell you how far up(if at all) you should push the two prong ends.
Yet the advertisement says it's comfortable in the nose. Well that depends on how the thingee is placed in the nose: if you put the flat base against the nose, and insert the prongs, there is some variation in nose space for the tips of the prongs to rest. I tried different positions and there was still some pressure and a slight feeling of scratchiness with one of the prongs. So of course, I kept removing it and trying to position it until I it was comfortable.
Yet the big question lingers: Is it in the right place so it can work??? Is it suppose to feel loose or tight? I haven't a clue. It did stay in all night and I was only slightly aware of it.
Did it work?
My other half told me, on the first night of the using the thingee, that I had one snore bout episode but it wasn't as loud as usual (huh???) Thereafter, I didn't snore. I noticed, upon awakening, that I had some extra chest congestion to expel. Some reviewers state they wear this thingee, primarily during the day, to control congestion.
You use this each night for 30 days( some sites say you can use it over 30 days(mmm) as long as you wash it with soap and water each day. I suppose that after 30 days you should buy another one. After 30 days this thing could lose its shape.
If you're thinking of ordering them online, Ebay has them for around 6.79 and a few higher price sites have them for about 12 dollars. 12 Dollars??? What's that about?
I'm still doing online research for the perfect instructions on placement. I think the company should put up a video that shows how this thing fits into the nose and exactly where the prongs should rest.
Possible sizing issues of the snooz:
One website, where snoozes cost more, states that the snooz thing is 3-5 inches long. Notice my picture. Nah. It can't be 3 to 5 inches long.
One site says according to clinical research( by who???) 85% of people have reduced snoring.
I guess the other 15% are trying to figure out how to put this thing in their nose.
Scented Silent Snooz
Also, Silent Snooz comes in different scents ( aromotherapy scents such as Eucalyptus and Lavender) This review covers the unscented one.
