Snoreeze Oral Strips
Advantages: Cheap, ease of use, natural ingredients, effectiveness
Disadvantages: Only 14 days worth per package, dont stop completely
My husband is a prolific snorer; front, back, side - it doesnt really matter how he lays he still snores. With a few beers it gets far worse and wakes the kids up with the sheer volume, but never him! I am a very light sleeper so my husbands condition causes massive tiredness in me and, although he doesnt wake properly, he isnt getting good quality sleep, especially when I loose it and thump him!
We had tried the nose stips but he is more of a throat snorer so these obviously didnt work. We also didnt want to spend an £15/20 on sprays at this stage so took the risk of tyring a lower cost product.
I was recommended Snoreeze oral strips at Boots. For £5.30 you get 14days worth of oral strips which claim to work for the loudest snorers, work for up to 8 hours, immediately effective and be made from natural ingredients.
The oral stips are basically a very thin blue strips of coated dissolvable substance, about 2cm x 3cm wrapped in individual packets for ease of use. The strips are infused with ingredients including peppermint oil, vitamin E and sodium hyalourante to moisturise and tone the tissue in the throat; pectin and guar guar (from apple and a citric acid) for lubrication. The overall effect being that this combination of goodies should reduce snoring. They are very easy to use, the snorer just takes them out of the wrapper and then pops one of the strips onto the roof of their mouth. The strip then dissolves quickly and hey presto that it. My husband said that the strips have a pleasant minty taste and the dissolving process is not unpleasant at all. He felt that they leave the throat feeling like you have just drunk lots of cold water, nice and clean and refreshed.
I really wasnt expecting fantastic results from these little stips, but honestly, they arent half good for what you pay. From the first night onwards my husbands amount of snoring reduced noticeably, as did the volume. After 3 nights I could definately see that they were working consistently. He still snored directly after dropping off but this was very quiet and stopped within 5 mins. If he rolled onto his back he would start snoring, but again quietly, once rolled over the snoring stopped again. If we went to bed at say 10pm, the results seemed to ware off about 5am, which is about 7 hours. So as long as we stuck to the sleep on your side method they really do work rather well.
Please remember the strips are not a cure for snoring, and at no stage did we purchase this thinking so, we just wanted to see if they would help at all. For what we paid and the ease of use I am happy with the results. I am getting more sleep, my husband is far less tired during the day and doesnt wake up with a sore throat or bruises from repeated punching overnight!!
In my opinion these strips are well worth a try for seasoned snoreres and their victims. They may not be the absolute cure but they are definatly a light at the end of the tunnel.
Summary: Good, non evasive product that actually does what is says
