  • I would suggest don't use snuffs with a lot of front drip and which are light on the nose despite taking a few grams. For me these are snuffs like the dry variety or the indian whites. I rarely need to blow my nose with these. (Of course, I don't wear makeup, I'm a guy - but just thinking what would make you not clean your nose often) . Hope this helps.
  • I could only second that. Dholakia White is the only snuff I can take in public (no forward drip). Portion snus (especially mini-sized or slim-sized) could be a nice snuff substitute in public places. No mess at all.


  • Use fine and dry snuffs when in public. You don't have to blow your nose that often. McChrystal's or WoS. Personally I like medicated ones when I go out, or at least with some menthol.
  • @SunnyDay Have you tried Dholakia Herbal? It's non tobacco snuff and it does not cause any kind of nose run whatsoever.
  • Thanks guys i will give the two dholakia a try which i is on my list anyways as i have not had any dholakia.
    small but strong pinch is the way to go you are right! no schmalzler though! oh my what a mess believe me :))

    i find myself sattelite around the "hedges" and the wilsons "bee cool" recently those are on my table. its true some of the fine grind english snuffs just dissapear sometimes, i love the "jocks choice" ! ozona president is good in regards of tiny hits that work without much nose drip btw they must have reformulated this one there is zero anise for me to smell i think they switched that to the orange oil extract that is used in gawith silver and "glueck auf" it got something feintly orange-citric like in the back

    ;)) :-*

    I dont use a bullet just back of my hand & a snuffspoon. I rarely have problems with 6 photo snuffs which I use regularly. I avoid smalzlers when wearing foundation as that makes for a hot mess. I do carry a small concealer stick to top up what has been wiped away by my hanky. I do often forgo foundation and just wear powder as it is easy to top up the wiped off areas. ;;)

  • @ladysnuff thanks for the reply! i wish i could just fix it up easy but i need to resort to foundation, color corrector, concealer and powder so it is rather exhausting to repair.
    i agree the choice of snuff helps and will be trying 6 photo soon i bought a try pack of all sorts for a small price >:D<
    the jaxons are relatively easy on the drip and are not bitter tasting at all should some run down the as well as bernard alt offenbacher with a high tobacco content. english types in general would work good but i am having lots of trouble snuffing them without using the "plugging" technique somewhere described in this forum (thanks for that one!) unfortunatly that can be a mess around the nose. i really wonder if those non medicated english snuffs like tom bucks and the likes are supposed to be this dry from a fresh tin. i got them sealed with a green tape around but maybe those are just adjusted to rainy english weather :)]

    @SunnyDay, you will find Indian black ones quite messy in that sense. I have shortened my moustache recently and now having big time cleaning off those black traces under my nose every time. Actually I have to harness my nails to scrap off that thing. I suspect there's some carbon among the ingredients :)

    Regarding freshness, are there mfg date stickers on the bottom of your WoS snuffs? Tape keeps them moist for 1.5-2 years in those tins. If you have WoS snuffs from '17, they definitely ought to be fresh and still contain proper moisture.

    There's a photo of some snuff packages with mfg date. By the way, 6 Photo Super Chetak from 2013 is still in good condition and review of the Russian one from 1975 is pending.

    I advice to learn narrowing your nose walls while insuflating. It really helps to enjoy taking any kind of snuff by pinch.

  • @volunge i checked my wilson tins and cant find any date or batch number because the label is replaced by german warning (imported by snuffstore)

    i tried squinting my nose while sniffing like if i would smell something bad this really seems to help thanks volunge you are a real snuff pro
    ^:)^

    You are welcome! I'm glad if that worked for you. This technique is essential for taking Indian whites. Kind of nasal acrobatics ;)
    The single drawback of pinching method is accumulation of snuff under the nails.
  • You should cut some snuff with your foundation so that even if it gets messy, no one could tell since it's the same color. I don't think it's dangerous to since if it's safe to go on your skin, it could probably go up your nose too.
  • Any foundation dust up my nose dose not include snuff. Usually just concrete.
    Sometimes I will dig it out with my snuff spoon before I have any snuff, but not usually unless it's after dinner time.
  • Buddy if you never nasally (or intravenously) took concrete, you're really missing out.
