Jeremy has some huge sinus issues. It effects him pretty badly and causes horrible sinus headaches. A few years back I had suggested he try a Neti-pot. I had known a few friends that used them with great results. What could it hurt? He agreed.
Just recently (right in time for Spring) we were given the opportunity to try out the SinuSense by WaterPik. Since Jeremy loved the Neti-pot so much I knew he was the perfect person to try it out.
Massage, cleanse and moisten your sinus passages with the gentle, pulsating stream of the Waterpik® SinuSense™ Water Pulsator. Maximum cleaning with a sensitive touch. Easy to use and easy to clean, this one-of-a-kind, battery-powered sinus wash device is safe for daily use, ages 6 and up.
I was a little shocked to see that it is recommended for ages 6 and up. Learn something new all the time…

First thing I noticed is that it takes up a lot less room than the Neti-pot, it is much more sleek. We were also impressed that you could heat up the water in the microwave once it is in the reservoir.
So Jeremy mixed in the solution with the water and microwaved until it was a comfortable temperature. Preparation took less than a minute. I watched as he used it for the first time and once again it was pretty funny to me (just as the Neti-pot first use was). He is so used to the Neti-pot that he was taken a bit by surprise by the pulsating and how quick the whole process was.
After 2 nights of use I asked him what his thoughts were on the Waterpik SinuSense. He said “I like it” and then he was gone. Um, that’s not enough for a review. So I jumped up and followed him around asking questions. He really does like it and repeated that phrase a few times. Then I was able to get bit more information from him. He really liked the comfortable fit of the nozzle. He also liked the pulsing of the water and felt it did a much better job than the Neti-pot. He also said the whole process was so much quicker.
It would be cool if there was a way to monitor the temperature of the water inside. There are really no other improvements that we can think of. Maybe a charging base?
Here is a video demonstrating how to use it. Jeremy wasn’t to keen on my video taping him cleaning his sinuses, so this is from the people over at Waterpik.
All in all…total hit and has taken the place of the Neti-pot over here. You can find out more about SinuSense by WaterPik by clicking over to the website. You can also follow the brand on twitter and facebook to see what other’s are saying.
They have some coupons available to save a bit on this as well.
I received the product featured as well to facilitate this review. I was also compensated for my time. All opinions are my own and 100% truthful.
