So I ordered this product about a month and a half ago. I received the S,M,L kit. I opened the package, and tried it out. It is absolutely terrifying to use at first, I could almost swear it was about to get lost up my nose. I freaked myself out, and decided to give up on trying to use it. I was so upset, because I truly hate my nose. But, this past week I was bored and decided to give it another go. After about a half an hour I figured it out. :) It works SO well. My nose isn't horrible, the Nose Secret gave me the right amount of definition my nose needed to create harmony with my face. The only thing I did not like about these little things, is they don't stay in place and will slide around. That made me extremely paranoid, so I got crafty and found a solution! I attached two pieces of a cotton ball to the back and front ends of the splints. They stay secure, and still give my nose perfect definition. I honestly don't know how these would work for truly bad noses, I just know they will work for anyone who has an awkward nose and needs that extra touch.
OMG! this seriously works! If you have a droopy nose, or want the tip lifted this is PERFECT. I wear them to school every day.....
but don't waste the 20 dollars! On Ebay, you can buy something called Rulav Nose Reshaper, and it is THE EXACT SAME THING AS NOSESECRET only its like 9 dollars! It works so well....my nose does hurt a little by the end of the school day, and if i bang my nose against something it hurts like 94TQ9U, but I'm using it as shorterm until my Nasofix arrives. :)
Don't give up on those cheap cleopatra nose clips. Buy the pink kind that lift the nose AND the clothespin type AND the nose roller from ebay....with time, you will see a huge difference, much like i am seeing right now. ;)) -camels.
**edit: Okay. BTW nasofix sucks. But anyway the rulav started hurting me so bad, i'm looking for alternatives. apparently this one is made of gel and feels like a dream: www.perfiles.unisex.com /their website doesn't work but if you type it into google you can buy it from a seller.
edit again: discovered a permanent solution. because i've noticed that nosesecret DOES make my nose keep the shape a little bit, i think i'll wear them every day for like 2-3 years until my nose molds to the shape a bit. but i noticed it was just hurting because it was kind of rubbing my nose inside. well- if you just put a tiny dot of triple antibiotic ointment (neosporin but i use publix brand) on your pinky and rub it inside the nose where the inserts rub against, it kind of lubricates the area, leaving you ready for 9-10 hours of pain free wear and it heals the area at the same time if it's been cut up or scratched by the inserts. :) i do this every day now.
Just received this product and tried it on for the first time. Took a while to fiddle with it and at first I thought it wasnt going to work, but I finally got it in and once it was inside, it was scary for the first time and I quickly took it out. It felt as though it could get lost and I could snort it up my nose, though im not sure how possible this is because it fits my nose rather well. I have attached some threads to the base of them which will make me feel more secure until im comfy enough with them that i can take them out. They are the only product for your nose besides plastic surgery that will instantly transform your appearance, they are not painful but of course having anything constantly in your nose will be awkward. I def look forward to wearing these to improve my profile in pictures.
This product really does work for my nose. I have a wide nose with very little definition at the tip; the inserts define the tip and push the nose upwards in an attractive, upturned position. I ordered the M, L, XL kit, thinking my nose was so huge I may need the largest size. While all of them fit, the L and XL inserts made my nose look like Michael Jackson's, while the M defined the tip in a subtle but substantial way.
There are issues with comfort with this product, however. The plastic inserts are obviously cheaply produced and may even be designed to break so that you are forced to purchase them again. If the manufacturers had put a piece of soft plastic or rubber at the ends of each tip, comfort issues would be reduced.
If comfort is an issue for you, an important thing to do when you first put them in is move them and arrange them until they feel comfortable. If you are sure to do this (rather than put up with having them in an uncomfortable position), you can wear them longer without discomfort.
I've only had this product for two days and I'm not sure how to deal with sneezing or anything like that. Still, if you are unhappy with your nose, I do recommend purchasing Nose Secret and seeing if it helps.
I was skeptical about buying nose secret but went ahead anyway because I was too curious. My nose is a bit wide at the tip and I read that the nose secret product would fix exactly that, making it narrower on the tip. I said what the heck and went ahead with the purchase..I'm so happy that I did! It did exactly what I wanted it to do and I can now feel more comfortable about pictures since I hated the way my nose looked when I smiled (even wider). The first time I tried it, I had the hardest time inserting them and when I finally got them in I was so nervous because it felt awkward and I thought I was going to breathe them in but you get used to the feeling and now it's a breeze to put on. I love nose secret and would recommend this product for sure, it beats getting a nose job and spending all that money. If your nose problem is a slight one, this is the solution.
I used to hate my face, because of my nose. I know, that is terrible and we should love what we are given. Nose secret enhances your natural features, but refines your nose if it is crooked or has a bump, or is wide and shapeless like mine, naturally. The splints lifted and straightened my nose, giving me the cute button nose that I always dreamt of having after expensive surgery. The splints do not hurt at all, and the first day wearing them, I wore them for 4 hours and hardly noticed them. Because I have crooked sinuses, I am able to breathe better through my nose with the splints in, and seem to have less allergy congestion. The best part is that when I take them out, my nose retains some of the shape. This is a product that will probably work really well for some, but may not have the same results on every person. I feel that I am very fortunate in that they fix exactly what I hated about my nose, and I feel a lot more confident in my looks, now. They also offered to send me 3 free pair of my size if I took a before and after picture for their site. I plan to do that. Thank you, Nose Secret. :)
My experience has been slightly different but overall pleasant. My advise is no matter how exciting you are with the results , do not keep the correctors for over a period of 30 minutes the first time.
Like the previous review I was so happy with my results that instead of wearing the splints for 30 minutes the first time as the instructions call, i kept them inside my nose for more than 5 hours and my nose got sore.
I called the company and complained but I realize the it was my fault for abusing the product and not allowing more time to adjust to them.
I have been wearing Nosesecret for over 3 months now and I went from 30 minutes to 4 hours and I don't feel any discomfort. Breathing is not a problem at all.
I give them 5 stars because there was no way I could got results the same day with any other product.
I hate and love this product so much at the same time. (SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR QUICK OVERVIEW) When I first read about it, I wasn't really sure if it was a gimmick or not, and I didn't really want to pay 35 dollars...so I made up some bs testimonial to receive a free pair in the mail....hahahahahaha =P anyways, I completely love and completely hate these.
First lets start with looks. They give my nose great projection in the tip and make it look much more girly and flattering, however it's kind of a fakey beautiful look. It looks kind of like a nose job, a good one though! It makes your nostrils really slit like, which I don't care for especially, but other than that it looks great! I now love my profile! And it looks great from a front view too. I mean, it doesn't give me my ideal nose, but it does look nice.
Next...comfort....OH MY GOSH THESE THINGS HURT LIKE A @#@!$@# every ounce of me wants to rip these silly things out of my nose..except they make me feel so much more beautiful. I've only had them for 2 days, so I'm hoping that I get used to them..but I'm not so sure I will. I can feel them in my nose constantly, its not like butt pads or retainers of contacts that you just eventually forget you're wearing them, no, these will haunt all of your waking hours. I mean, its not rediculously painful, but its..unpleasant. And ive noticed my nose has been watering A LOT the last couple days, but I can't blame the nose secrets entirely because my throat is sore too...so i might just be sick..but i'm sure they aren't helping lol. Another thing I thought of is maybe I just got a size too big? that could be it too.
***OVERALL- I'm giving these a 4 out of 5 just because of how beautiful they make my nose look. Fair warning to everyone looking at these though, if you like natural beauty and value your comfort over beauty, aka, if you are the average woman, THESE ARE NOT FOR YOU. These are for people like me who spend an hour and a half to 2 hours every day putting on fake eyelashes, makeup, and doing their hair to mow the yard. These also do not look natural at all, they make your nose look beautiful, yet unnatural, like a really good nose job. And they are very uncomfortable so far. So unless you are really really really vain and value your beauty as much as I do, these probably aren't for you and I can definitely see why everyone hates them. But for me, they have become an everyday necessity :)
P.S. Oh, and if you can't already tell, I'm not a nose secret representative. This is a legit review.
This product, in all honesty is amazing! I used the nose right for about 8 months before giving up with it after seeing absolutly no change in my nose size/shape. (My nose is fairly average length but has a bulbous tip). So I started saving up for a nose job. A few months later after giving up the nose right, I came across the nose secret. I read a lot of reviews before I gave in and decided to try it. I decided to buy, off the website the starter kit which consists of a pair a small spilnts, medium splints and large splints. I think in total it cost me around $30.00.(ish) but as I live in the UK it was more £25.00(ish). The international P&P was very reasonable and it took around a week to arrive. When the packet arrived, inside was a little pouch with the splints inside. I tried the small, which were too small for me.. I tried the large which resulted in me looking slightly Michael Jackson-esk. So I found a happy medium with the medium size which fits my nose perfectly. They are very easy to insert and there isnt the fear of loosing them inside your nose, to be honest I think its nearly impossible unless to forcefully push them up your snout. I can wear them for about 4 hours before they start to rub and make the inside of my nose sore, but to be honest, the result I get is enough to outweigh the slight soreness. Anyway, the result is perfect, just what I need. A subtle but nice change. It alters the tip of the nose to make it more shapley and less bulbous and makes my face prettier. I cant rave on about this product enough, I love it!
my first impression to this product was it was a waste of money. because i have a wide nose and it just pushed my nose upward. and it was just so ugly.
i still continued to adjust and to try different sizes yet the results was ugly. it went inside my nose because i didn't follow the instruction. i placed it the wrong way . and it bleed because i hardly blew it by closing the other nose.
however, when i tried to put the one circle in the tip of my nose and by pushing the base of the black splint, it was beautiful. so what the buyer should do is a lot of practice ON THE START of using nose secret. because not all nose is the same. so you need to adjust a lot. as for me i just received it yesterday. after i mastered it. no more bleeding nor discomfort. :))) hope that will help you .
one more thing, follow the illustration on the instruction. because if you do insert the splint in the opposite side of the curve. it will, trust me, go inside of you nose . and if that happen. just relax. STOP BREATHING and BLOW! BY COVERING THE OTHER NOSE.
