These Advanced strips stick very well, even though they're clear, and because of the design, I can position each end/wing exactly where I need it. (The regular clear strips never stayed on.) I make sure that my nose is clean and dry and, when I put the strip on, I hold it firmly in place for several seconds. It helps the adhesive stick better.

Because they are so adjustable, it did take a few tries to determine the right positioning for me so I wasted a few when I first got them. I do need to put them on while looking in the mirror where I could put the normal ones on in the dark but the difference is amazing.

The adhesive is strong so be careful when you take it off. I use cold cream or vaseline to gently loosen the adhesive. Apply the cream over the strip and around it, massaging gently and slowly work the edges up. Don't rush it or you will break the skin. It sounds like a pain but it's worth it to breathe well at night.

They say these are not addictive but I've found myself addicted to the extra oxygen at night. ;-)

I used the Tan,SM/MED for the last 3 years. I apply before sleep. I wanted to believe these would work even more. Well they don't. One reason being they won't stick on the nose well. I scrub my nose(never had to with old ones), and sill it comes loose one place or another 99% of the time. Worse it woill pop of in the night. Never happened with the old ones. If it does stay on, result are the same as the old ones, yet I'm paying more for these. Another issue is how difficult they are to apply,compared to the old ones. Great concept,but needs work.

    My husband sounded like a sawmill before I got him to try Breathe Right! Now I sleep through the night because he's so much quieter. And he sleeps better, too.

      I received samples of the Advanced, when I purchased the regular Breathe Right. But NO instructions were included how to separate the Advanced product from the paper from the plastic.

      I wasted 3 samples trying to get then apart.

          Comments about Breathe Right Advanced Nasal Strips, 26 ea:

          I love these advanced strips. Kind of surprized to see it getting lower ratings. Frankly, after using these, the regular strips just don't work well enough. These strips are stiffer and and with an additional sticky part that is higher up on your nose which gives the effect of opening more of your nostril and opening it wider. It's a godsend. Thank you Breathe Right- please keep making these advanced strips.

          For those who can't get the clear strips to stick- wash your nose before putting them on. The problem with the brown ones is that wearing night after night causes my skin to peel off and bleed. If the clear ones don't work for you, then get the brown ones.

            I do not have oily skin so if I ensure the nose area is clean and dry before application they stay on very well for me. They open up a larger area for easier breathing than the regular strips. When I use the regular strips, they leave a quite noticable line across the lower portion of my nose all day but the line is not as noticable with these. If the regular strips help you but don't completely resolve your issue, I would recommend to at least try these to see if they help more.

                Comments about Breathe Right Advanced Nasal Strips, 26 ea:

                I have used this product for years with great satisfaction and then I saw this Advanced Breathe Right Nasal Strips - clear. I bought a box. It applies the same way as the original strips and the design of the nasal strip is more aggressive and the plastic feels more rigid. The first one came off during the night as it barely clung to my nose. The same thing happened the next night...and the next....and the next. Thinking it may be my nose that is causing these strips to malfunction during the night, I washed and thoroughly cleaned the skin of my nose and it still came off. Apparently, the 3M adhesive is not tacky enough or the the plastic of the strips is too rigid, I don't know, it still does NOT work. I haven't had a single problem with the original nasal strips so I am declaring that this new Advanced Breath Right nasal strips to be a lemon. Do not buy.

                      I have used the extra strips for some time with good results. I have a large aquiline nose so I use the larger strip. The advanced strips if properly positioned work better than the extra strips. I will use the advanced strips from now on. They are a little harder to remove but adhere well all night

                        Comments about Breathe Right Advanced Nasal Strips, 26 ea:

                        Initially, advaned strips work well, if one really gets all oils from skin. As mentioned elsewhere, they peel up during the night and become less effective. Is peeling due to spring strips being too strong or adhesive not being strong enough? Do not know but I think the strips in the Advanced is stronger than the originals. Advertising on TV is misleading since they show an advanced strip which is not clear, rahter appears white. If Breathright company could get the loss of adhesion figured out, this would be a good product.

                            These strips are too stiff and they don't stick. I went back to the old style which go on easy and stay put all night. The product works great if it stays on!
