the pillows suppose to rest on the nostrils .. not goes inside

But they push upward on the nose, giving you that pig-nose appearance.

This is all really just a joke. I doubt the effect is real. If it were, you'd have to keep going up a size in your nasal pillows, eventually reaching XXXL. Dielaughing
My baggy eyes isn't a joke, I am serious, I thought maybe I had the mask to tight but I believe its the design of the Swift FX. I am comfortable with the fit but not how I look in the morning. I won't share no real photos, don't want to scare anyone! LOL I'm not trying to win any beauty contests so if my therapy is working I'm okay with it, I can just plan my outdoor trips at night when my face goes back to normal! Too-funny

I have just started using the pillows and I wake up with huge bags under my eyes and swollen eye lids. I was wondering if this was caused by my Swift FX? Anybody else , besides Tim and I, have this problem?

During allergy season, I get this. I use nasal pillows. If I am really down with it, my eyes will be glued shut, but not very often. Three times a year maybe. Someone explained that it pushes the fluid out the tear ducts? Something like that.

I will start looking in the mornings and see if the puffiness is more oftener than I think.

I would like to report that since I've been using Grape Seed Oil on and around my nostrils, my nose-hole enlargement process has begun to reverse itself. Not sure why, exactly.

This is scary -- I don't have a cute, petite little nose ... I have a rather large Celtic nose, thanks to my dad ....

so I don't need any kind of enlargement!! I'm using the medium pillows. I tried small and it seemed like I wasn't getting enough air.
Seriously, is this something that happens?!

I haven't noticed any problem with the P10 Clem. I use the medium size and sometimes go to the large size for a week or so. It does remind me of a radio show from my kidhood days: "Who nose what evil lurks in the hearts of man? The Shadow nose......." Apologies are already in the mail.

DISCLAIMER; DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. TESTED UNDER SAFE LAB CONDITIONS ONLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT!!

I read that after nostril enlarging will nasal pillow masks one should use Preparation H to shrink them right back down to normal size, sometimes even smaller! I heard it works wonders on baggy eyes and wrinkles as well. Dielaughing

Def not putting Prep H up my nose, LOL.

Now the dr is increasing the air pressure in my machine. I'm worried it's going to blow up my nose like never before. Ugh. Am I going to need plastic surgery someday????

Seriously, how long have these nasal pillows been around? Has anyone using the pillows for a long time noticed nasal "stretching"? This has got me worried now. Good Grief.
