Take That Allergies : Relieving Sinus Pressure With SinuSense

You know spring has sprung when I wake up hacking and have to sleep sitting up on the couch so I don’t choke to death on cough drops (or die from smothering from a husband sick of snoring.

It’s a pity really, March 20th should be an exciting day for us. We got engaged on the first day of Spring and while I am not a huge celebrator of small anniversaries like that. But it would be nice to memorialize the day with something besides sneezing for once.

And this year, I kind of got to! I haven’t found the miracle cure or anything, I am still sneezing up a storm, but the hacking and sore throat that usually keep me up (and almost always develop into a sinus infection) are not with me this year. I finally kicked them to the curb with Waterpik’s SinuSense.

I have to admit that I was dubious when I was asked to review it. It’s not that I don’t think sinus rinsing works, I know it is a great natural remedy for allergies. It was more that I didn’t think I needed a Waterpik branded one. After all, I have a perfectly lovely neti pot in my cabinet as well as a few other nasal washes knocking around the house.

Why add one more?
What made the difference?
You might know after looking at the picture:

It was so easy that I actually DID it every night. Turns out nasal washing works a lot better when you actually made a habit of doing it. I am loving Spring this year and happy to celebrate this special day with something other than a red nose. And the SinuSense has inspired me to keep up with my other natural remedies for allergies, like eating local honey.

Want to know more? You can check out a video of it in action here. The Facebook page has some great info too. SinuSense is also on Twitter. Their website also has some greta coupons if you want to try it out for yourself. SinuSense by WaterPik– retails for $29.99.

Disclosure: In addition to the product, I was compensated for my time.


  1. putting anything up your nose sounds torturous but so are my allergies this year… anything is worth a try!

  2. I bow down to you. There’s no way I could use something like this. The idea scares me. My daughter uses a neti pot, so I’ll have to let her know about this product.

    I have a secret remedy for snoring. I am willing to trade this info for beer for my husband.
