The nasal strips contain flexible bands, which gently open the nasal passages, improving airflow and reducing snoring caused by congestion.
The Reality - Our Review & Opinion
These Sleepeaze strips offer up a different design approach to the ubiquitous Breathe Right and it's many imitators, and this has inadvertently created a bit of a conundrum.
Which way up do you apply the strip?
The pictogram on the front of the box seems to indicate the bottom strip is correct, but that seemed somewhat counter-intuitive to us. We tried both orientations and came to the conclusion that the top strip gives the most improved nasal airflow.
The strip itself is thicker than many other brands and comes in just the one size which is comparable to the medium sized Breathe Right at 55mm. We had no problems with the adhesive during our tests and the strips stayed on the nose through the night. Application and removal was easy, and no issues were encountered.
An improvement in nasal airflow was noticeable but the pull from the two spring-like pieces embedded within the strip didn't feel as strong as some other brands.
Did it help with snoring? - A little. The reduction in frequency and volume of snoring was comparable with other nasal strips we have tested.
Would we recommend this product - At 45p per strip (based on the current price of £8.99 for a box of 20 strips) they are an expensive alternative the Breathe Right (37p per strip - £10.99 for 30 strips). If a hypoallergenic, latex free nasal strip is required, then we'd suggest these are a reasonable alternative to Breathe Right.
