I Don't Buy It: Lifemax Sneezer Beam

I Don't Buy It: Lifemax Sneezer Beam

I'm all for anything that can eliminate allergies, but don't tease me. This Lifemax Sneezer Beam claims it can vaporize your sneezing, congestion, and runny noses with light. All you do is plug your nostrils with these mini light sabers light beam rods and the photons supposedly inhibit the cells that release histamines, which protect the body against allergens such as dust, dander, and pollen but that the body over produces when you have an allergy. It'd be amazing if this Sneezer Beam could stop the histamine and prevent runny noses and congestion, but I don't believe it works. This device kind of reminds me of the rhino horn neti pot, but the neti post is no hoax since it actually works.

If you suffer from allergies, I'm sure you're willing to try anything at this point. Too bad the manufacturer says treatment involves three minutes of this light therapy, three times a day for a month until you start seeing results. I've never tried this Sneezer Beam but it sounds a little too cosmic for my taste. I think I'll save my $60.

it's so funny to me the types of products that are developed and how there are so many people out there who would buy into it. you know that they had to do market research to understand if there's a demand for this. i have to say that i'll pass on it as well. the few times that i sneeze are ok.

LOL, ahamila, I was thinking the same thing! Don't forget to put the crystals in! I don't think I'd buy this even if I did have allergies...I'd rather use a Neti pot or something else that's actually proven to work.

This is hilarious! It reminds me of the "time machine" in Napoleon Dynamite.

I could see this "theoretically" working just on the inside of your nostrils, which could help with allergens. What I can't see is how the light could get up into your sinuses and affect serious congestion. I'll stick to my neti pot thank you very much!

Umm. I hate sneezing. But the thing is, it serves a really good, healthy purpose. When I sneeze, I'm expelling something that shouldn't be in my body. Sneezing is good. I just don't buy that this product is healthy, at all.
