I tried these after I couldn't get on with the Somni Snore Guard - I just didn't like a lump of plastic in my mouth when I was falling asleep and would try and wait until the last minute to put it in, which meant I often fell asleep without it! So the next step was these strips and I've adapted to them much better. My partner says it hasn't eliminated my snoring, but it's much quieter and in shorter bursts. And I can't really "forget" to put them on. I'm still not massively keen because they do pull on my face and pull the skin down from my eyes, and I end up with deep lines in the morning, so I'm not sure they're very good for your skin. But I think of the health benefits to my teeth, gums, mouth and heart and this motivates me. If you buy them in bulk they're quite good value as well. I am really grateful to this website because my sister asked her GP what she could do about snoring and she was told "nothing". I like the fact there are several different options so you can try them out until you find the right one for you. My partner and I did try the snore tests but couldn't really work out whether I was a mouth breather or not, so we just tried the cheapest option and went from there...
Pros and cons of Chin ups
on the 7th Aug 2008
They have significantly reduced, but not eliminated my snoring. The strips are very fragile and tear easily during application which is costly. It would be fantastic if you could reuse them and be tougher but even if you buy in bulk its becomes quite expensive especially when you are a pensioner. 40p each when you buy 30, £65 for 200 is a big amount to pay all at once. My rating takes all my comments into consideration.
reinforcement of chin up strips

If you stick pieces of (12.5 mm wide) micropore about 4/5 cm long slantwise just touching each inner edge of the strip they will reinforce it and make it less liable to tear.

Just to say as a mouth snorer these chin strips which were sent to me as a trial offer have been really good and used in conjunction with a nasal dilotor have reduced my snoring to minimal and socially acceptable
