  3M Masks to the Rescue
Reviewed by: An allergy sufferer from Denver CO

When I began having allergic reactions just prior to the holiday, I looked to ACHOO Allergy to order some 3M masks that would eliminate dust and mold as the culprits. The order arrived quickly and helped rescue me from my environment.
  Great solution
Reviewed by: ema1 - cat allergy sufferer from Lorton, Virginia

I am allergic to cats and usually I must avoid any exposure. My son has two cats and was scheduled for back surgery. I booked a hotel for the first 4 days after his surgery, but still had to go into his house to care for his cats. The mask saved me from experiencing the breathing allergies I have to cats. I was able to go into his house to take care of the cats without suffering the breathing issues/asthma attack I usually get for just being in a house with a cat. I would definitely recommend.

I have been sick with allergy induced sinus infections for months. I literally could not clean my own home without getting sick. Any type of cleaning products plus mold and pollen caused me lots of allergy and sinus problems. I tried using some inexpensive paper type masks that I bought at a local store but they were uncomfortable, scratchy and absolutely useless. I was glad I stumbled on your website. Then based on the great information you provided online I order the 3M 8293 mask. It's been a life saver and it's wonderful to get my house clean and work outside without any adverse affects. The masks are comfortable and they work, they just simply work. I haven't had any sinus problems or allergy symptoms since using them. I'm very, very happy. I finally have the right mask for my needs at a price point I can afford. Thank you for carrying this product.

The product arrived quickly, and is definitely a quality product. used it while mowing the lawn and it worked very well. no sneezing, coughing. works awesome. The only minor problem is while wearing eyeglasses I have to adjust it down a few time, but hey it does what its suppose too and that's what's most important to me. You are a great company and have outstanding products. Thank you. If you have any advice as to the minor issue I mentioned It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a great day.
  8293 Masks

I ordered two of the 8293 masks for my two sons. One has asthma and the mask allows him to mow the grass and be outside in his yard. The other son cleans houses and apartments and there is a lot of dust. The mask allows him to clean without inhaling dust and causing him to have allergies and colds.
  Enjoying the outside world year round again
Reviewed by:  from 

First let me say I am 83 years old and in the past I have had a lot of troubles with allergies, but I was young enough to shake them off and keep going. However, in the past few years there were times in the year when I was essentially stuck in the house. Recently I tried the 3M 8233 mask and it has allowed me to work outside in my raised bed garden plots. I can do things like walk in the city park and my neighborhood without setting off my allergies. The mask fits well, looks nice and clean, is light weight, lets me breath freely, and doesn’t fog up my sun glasses. Another nice thing for someone living on a fixed income is that the price is very reasonable and the mask is comfortable to wear. Today I pulled some of my Silver Queen corn from my garden while the tassels were still no through shedding. Then I shucked and cleaned the silk from the corn, and threw the shucks and silks into my mulch area. Normally this would have set off my allergies, but today none of that occurred because I was wearing my mask. Bob M. In Quaint Little Fairhope, AL
  it does the job
Reviewed by: christie from Douglasville, GA

If I work outside, housework inside, spray for bugs, anything like that, I am miserable for days afterwards. Turns out I am allergic to all the pollens, trees, grasses, most weeds, dustmites, oral allergy syndrome... I might look funny in my mask & glasses but at least now I feel better afterwards as long as I still shower almost immediately.
  3M Allergy Mask/Respirator
Reviewed by: Allergy Sufferer from Knoxville, TN

I had gotten to the point that every time I mowed my lawn, I would suffer so much with my allergies, it wasn't worth it. A close friend recommended I look for an allergy mask and give that a try. I couldn't find anything locally that had a respirator, and with my allergies and a tendancy towards stuffiness, I needed to be able to "breathe" easily with a mask. Incredible! Other than the fact the mask was a little warm, I was able to breathe freely, and it was very comfortable, and very easy to adjust and custom fit around my nose. But most importantly, I had NO allergy reactions after mowing my lawn.
  Easy to get used to

This mask worked great for my 82-year-old grandmother. Easy to use over her oxygen tube.
  good mask
Reviewed by: An asthma/allergy sufferer from lexington, KY

The mask is comfortable. It is well designed and seals around the face well unlike the cheaper versions. I think it is a good option for those who have very bad allergies or asthma.
  good mask for big nose
Reviewed by: dude with large bridge from south korea

Great mask for me considering the size of my nose. Works as advertised. easy to breathe, doesn't fog my glasses, good seal. Only problem is my nose. the metal piece across the bridge as well as the seal are helpful but i must still stuff cotton under the seal to completely prevent air from escaping/entering near my eyes. my fault for having a big nose, but i had hoped the seal would be a little better suited to any type of nose. overall i love the mask and will buy more.
  Allergy Induced Asthma

Mask is very comfortable easy to wear all day while cutting lawn and working outside. Pulmonist suggested, noticing difference in protecting from allergens. Price is right.
  Excellent Product
Reviewed by: Allergy Sufferer from Elizabeth City, NC

I am highly allergic to mold. My worksite recently went without AC for three weeks during very hot and humid conditions. When the AC came back on, I started getting sick and the discovered mold in the building which they are in the process of cleaning up. This mask makes it possible for me to breathe and function at my job.
  Easy to use and wear
Reviewed by: MaryAnn B - allergic asthma from Illinois

This mask is much easier to use than the one with the big pink pads. I wore this mask to use the power blower on dusty, dirty exterior porches and patios. I forgot I had it on! I had a small mark on my cheek from the mask, but I think it happened when I scratched myself when I removed it I would recommend it for those with serious dust and pollen alleries.
  Best Mask for Allergies
Reviewed by: Asthma sufferer from Illinois

I purchased a mask from a different store and wasn't thrilled with the fit. I suffer from asthma needed something that would help with the dust trigger. This mask did an outstanding job secure fit and still allows comfort. I highly recommend this mask for others.
  Comfortable relief

I've been delighted with this mask. It's very light and comfortable, and is helping me to get allergy relief while taking less allergy medicine.
  Good for most things
Reviewed by: allergy sufferer from Atlanta, GA

I have worn this mask for some time. It is great for dusting, etc. And, it is good for the larger pollens. It does not do so well for the smaller pollens such as ragweed. Better than nothing for smaller pollens but I am switching back to a HEPA for Spring and Fall outdoor pollens.
