Introduction – SNOREPIN Stop Snoring Device Review

When I first looked into the SNOREPIN, I was pretty optimistic. I’ve reviewed similar products as this before, and have come to find that the general idea seems solid and well-thought-out. To be honest, the concept is pretty simple. These small ‘cones’ are made to be pushed upwards into the openings of the nasal passages – thereby expanding them and creating more room for air to move through.

I’ve come to realize that this product seems to be a common replacement (or at least an attempt at it) for nasal strips, mostly because nasal strips need to be purchased regularly and these don’t. The SNOREPIN product will last quite a while without needing to be replaced – so it would tend to save you money if you could get it to work right.

But is it really worth the cost – or would you be better off with something else?

Here’s what I found out over the course of my research.

Product Details

So, SNOREPIN is said to feature a ‘new design’ that effectively puts an end to both snoring and sleep apnea. It’s also said to reduce occurrences of dry mouth -mostly by promoting nose breathing. The product is made from an antiallergenic polyurethane, which is produced without latex. It’s also dishwasher safe, and is designed with small ‘slits’ on the surface that are intended to catch airborne particles. If you order it from Amazon.com, you get a 30 day money back guarantee as well -which is always a good sign!

All in all, I was pretty impressed by the list of features. I mean, this isn’t necessarily a ‘complicated’ product – but it is a good idea and a concept that I have found to be effective -so the SNOREPIN definitely has this working in its favor.

Type

This product is technically a nasal dilator.

Clinical Studies

Attention! I haven’t seen anything to indicate that the SNOREPIN has been tested or researched in a clinical setting – so as far as I can tell, the answer is a ‘no’.

Is this product FDA cleared?

I haven’t seen any reference to FDA clearance for the SNOREPIN whatsoever – so the answer seems to be a ‘no’ here as well.

You can buy a pack of 2 sets of these products for $13.96 – though you might be surprised to learn that Ebay.com is one of the best places that I’ve found to purchase them from! The reason for this is because Ebay sellers are some of the only sellers who will ship this product to Australia.
I wasn’t able to learn much about this company -which made me a little bit nervous, to be honest. I learned that this product was trademarked by a company called Pearl Enterprises, LLC. I found this information on trademarkia.com.

I always feel better when I can go to an actual company website – but it seems that this company either doesn’t have one, or that it’s just so challenging to find that I was unable to locate it.

The business address for this company is as follows.

Pearl Enterprises, LLC

Lakewood, NJ 08701

This was on the Trademarkia.com page about SNOREPIN. Unfortunately, it didn’t supply the entire address – only the city and state.

There are a ton of reviews about this product online, mostly due to the fact that it’s sold on Amazon.com – and Amazon always manages to collect a decent number of reviews. As far as I can tell, there is no reason whatsoever to think that this product is a scam. It definitely seems to be a legitimate device that’s manufactured and sold by a legitimate company. BUT, not all reviews are good!

SnorePin DeviceHow does the product work?

It basically works by expanding the openings of the nasal passages -allowing more airflow and promoting nose-breathing, which is said to be healthier and to contribute to better overall health in-general.

What are actual customers saying?

Actual customers are saying a wide range of different things about it. In fact, I was surprised to find that the SNOREPIN has almost as many negative reviews on Amazon as it does positive.

The most common positive review seems to be that it works like a charm – while the most common complaint seems to be that it simply doesn’t. Some have also complained about the hardness of the plastic, about how the size isn’t right for every nose type, and about how far up inside of the nose the product needs to be pushed before it’ll help anything.

Rated on Amazon

All things considered, I wasn’t incredibly impressed with it after reading through some reviews. It definitely seems like it would work for some people -though maybe not for everyone.

What you can expect

You can expect it to take anywhere from one day to a week for your nose to get used to having the SNOREPIN inside of it. Once you get used to it, it’s supposed to be a lot easier to use – but there’ll definitely be at least a little bit of a learning curve as you ‘adjust’ to having something inside your nostrils while trying to sleep.


Does this brand stack up against the competition?

The SNOREPIN does stack up against the competition in a few ways. It’s pretty inexpensive, so it might be a more viable first-try product than a more expensive option would be – like a mouthpiece or something like that. It also has some advantages over products like nasal strips, as it’s not disposable and can be used for a much longer period of time without needing to be thrown away or disposed of.

Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions

The main difference between this product and other typical anti-snore solutions is the fact that it only affects the nose. It doesn’t require you to put anything into your mouth. It’s also pretty inexpensive when compared to other types of anti-snoring devices.

Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?

No. You won’t need a prescription or a doctor’s involvement to buy or use the SNOREPIN.

Pros and Cons

Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about this product over the course of my research.

Pros

  • It seems well-made and durable
  • It works for a lot of people
  • It’s cheaper than most stop-snoring mouthpieces, and lasts longer than nasal strips
  • If you order it from Amazon.com, you get a 30 day money back guarantee
  • Helps to promote nose breathing -which is said to be much healthier than mouth-breathing
  • It’s inexpensive

Cons

  • Quite a few people say the product doesn’t work
  • The plastic might be too ‘hard’ for some people
  • It’s hard to find information about the company
  • It’s difficult to find a company that will ship this product to Australia

Conclusion

The SNOREPIN maybe is a good idea, and the product seems to be well made – though I’m afraid that it probably won’t work for everyone. There are a lot of negative reviews out there about it – but there are also some positive ones as well.

In my opinion, this device is worth a try ONLY if you’re looking for something inexpensive that might work for you. If it does, then you’ll save a lot of money. If not, you can always return it if you ordered it from a business that offers a money back guarantee. I’m not sure if you’d be able to return it if you bought it from an Ebay seller – it seems unlikely, so in that case you might be out your money if you end up not being too crazy about it.

Costs and shipping

If you purchase this product from an Ebay seller, then you’ll end up paying around $13.96 for the product and $20.83 to get it shipped to your home in Australia.

The best place to buy this product (if you live in Australia) is probably from an Ebay seller but whether you should only you can device.
