Bzz Agent: Afrin PureSea

As a Bzz Agent, I am given the opportunity to try new things. I was offered the Bzz Campaign for Afrin PureSea. The PureSea product is advertised as "A new exciting way to cleanse your nasal and sinus passages so you can breathe freely." Additionally the following was written about it:

Afrin PureSea is clinically proven to gently and effectively wash away irritants. Plus, it's easy to use, convenient and sterile, unlike some other methods of cleansing your nasal and sinus passages. You control the flow and the speed of the purified sea water, there's no mixing of ingredients and you don't have to worry about boiling water, buying distilled water or rinsing out the entire vessel after every use.

I'm a good sport, so even though I've never used a product like this, I tried it once a day for 7 days.

If the picture below doesn't give it away, I was not fond of the cleansing. I never really got the hang of how to tilt my head correctly so that once I sprayed the liquid in one nostril, the fluid would come out the other. More often than not it came out the same nostril or went down my throat. I will say that even though I wasn't successful with the method of application, I did feel like I was breathing just a little more clearly after my misuse.

At the end of the seven days, I still had some of the bottle left, so I asked James to try it. We sterilized the applicator and he tried. On his first attempt, he had complete success. . in one nostril and out the other.

Here's the cleansing look from the other side. While he had good luck with the application, he said immediately after the use he felt clogged up, but that feeling went away.

I will probably not purchase this item, but only because I tend to not use this type of product. If you are interested in using Afrin Puresea, it is found in the cough and cold aisle. Email or post a comment if you are interested in receiving one of the $3 off coupons I received as part of the Bzz Campaign.
