  Silk Dust Masks Are the Best
Reviewed by: Allergy Sufferer from Minnesota

I have tried several types of face masks which I wear during pollen season and when doing chores which stir up dust. I hesitated to buy one of the silk ones because of the expense, but once I bought one there was no looking back. They are so light weight and comfortable, and you can breathe easily and there is very little condensation to deal with. They can be easily washed in a little soapy water and dry in a few minutes. They last for a long time. That first mask is now about eight years old and I am still very happy with it, but bought two more recently so i can keep one in my purse and one in the basement.
  I Can Breathe, Indeed!!! :

This mask IS amazing. It has helped me through so much, including having to deal with loads of dusty paperwork and clothing before my move, dealing with extra low humidity in the old home in VA, although it's not supposed to, it even helps with mold which attacks my lungs and leaves me sick for weeks if allowed. I have been able to now visit the homes of some of my friends who have a mold issues in their home they're not affected by it, thanks to this mask. I wish I had more than one, but so far since I can wash as needed and it's holding up very well since Feb/Mar timeframe when I bought it I'll keep this one in use as I do now, always in a pocket or my purse, and will definitely reorder when it gets raggedy. Thanks to Adrien Bledstein for creating this wonderful and highly effective mask.
  Comfortable allergy mask
Reviewed by: Vickey B. from Mt. Pleasant, SC

I had tried the cheap allergy masks and found them uncomfortable and hot. I didn't want to wear them even though my allergist said I had to wear a mask for house work and yard work. Then I found the Silk Comfort Mask online. It is lightweight and comfortable. I found myself forgetting that I was even wearing it which is true testament to how comfortable this mask is. I can wash it and reuse it over and over. For the first time ever I did yard work and I did not have an allergic episode.

This product really helped me avoid my terrible cedar reaction when trying to exercise outdoors, which I love. It is so lightweight and pretty comfortable - I'm not used to using masks, but this one worked well. Only thing is if you're breathing hard and the air is humid, the mask sticks to your face some.

  Light weight, comfortable
Reviewed by: Allergic to mold & mildew from Huntsville, Alabama

After my fifth sinus surgery, I find it necessary to wear a mask for dusty house work and yard work. This mask is light weight and easy to adjust. I do not find it hot. It cuts out enough of the airborne particles mold spores are what I am highly allergic so I don't worry about what I might be breathing in to cause an infection. It is easy to clean and drys fast. Even though it says not for smoke, it does help when using a gas grill to cook. I will probably order more to keep one in my purse. You never know when you might want visit to an antique store, museum or historic building.

I have had a similar mask before from Allergy catalog and it wore out. Am very glad to have it again as it saved me a lot of asthma attacks due to indoor and outdoor molds. Very good luck with reg washing in the past.
  silk mask
Reviewed by: Credence Tilden from Clarkston, Washington

This mask works great for working in the yard to reduce pollen issues as long as its not too hot. However, while its more breathable than masks you buy at the store and throw away, if its hot your face still gets extremely hot and you end up dripping sweat. I love that its washable and works so great for pollen, but I wish it helped with smoke too. I live in a very dry hot climate so I need something more breathable that also helps with smoke as we have alot of fires too. Really like this for early spring, but need something for those hot summer monthes as it gets over 100 degrees here and something for smoke too as I have severe allergies to both.
  Easy to wear, does the job
Reviewed by: Very sensitive to pollen from Nahunta, GA

First-this mask does indeed filter out the allergens. I need to walk my dog for 1-2 hours and finally, this mask has got me and my dog back up and running in the woods. And, the mask is lightweight, easy to wear, extremely comfortable to the point where I forget I have it on, is totally odor-free. To wash, I just use a little soap under the faucet and hang up to dry. The elastic straps are easily adjustable and fit behind the ears. Highly recommend this mask.
  Great value!

I have terrible dust mite allergies and was waking up with sinus headaches despite having bought special bedding, etc. I use this mask to sleep in and love it! It's very soft and comfortable and does not bother me at all while I sleep. The adjustable straps ensure that I get a good fit around my nose and mouth. I love that it can be washed and re-used. Great value!
  Good basic mask, but plastic hinges?
Reviewed by:  from Gainesville FL

I tried to adjust the elastic and the little adjuster, made of very flimsy plastic, snapped in half the first day. The mask itself is fairly comfortable, once I get used to breathing in it, I don't notice it much- it's not like not having anything on, but it's not anywhere as hot as those commercial dust filters from Home Depot. You can definitely breathe, but I'm not sure why they used plastic where there would be stress- Not as soft as I expected, but that means it keeps its shape while worn so it doesn't go in and out when you breathe. The nose shape holds it out from the nose, kinda Michael Jackson -ish. The metal tab can be form fitted but of course doesn't "hold on" to your nose so you have to play with it to make it as snug as you can. All in all, I like the mask and material, unhappy with the flimsy adjustment thingy. It does the job for pollen and molds and lawnwork.
  A Simple Solution
Reviewed by: Allergy is my middle name from Fayetteville, Arkansas

With lifetime allergies, I've tried masks in the past, especially when working in the yard--but they were cumbersome and breathing was hard work. This mask is truly comfortable. I swish it in cold water and mild soap to clean, air dry, put it in a baggie, and carry along everywhere.
  Very Comfortable, thank you!
Reviewed by: Saved by silk from Austin, TX

I had finally had enough of the Texas mold controlling my mornings! I didn't think I would become a mask wearer, but reading other reviews, it seemed like it would be worth it. I was not disappointed at all with my mask purchase. It is light and doesn't make me feel like I am suffocating, as other masks do. It also works well to filter out dust and chemical fumes when I am at work. The only thing that would improve it would be if it looked like a cartoon animal's snout.

This mask works. Just know what you are getting. This is not silky smooth fabric on your face. It is more like a stiff parachute silk. I have their honeycomb mask and it is indeed, very soft. I guess I expected this to be even more so.

I can be having symptoms that are enough to drive a sane person ranting and raving out of the house and down the street! I put this mask on and my symptoms clear up within 30 minutes. It is comfortable and it doesn't fog up my glasses. Well worth the money.

I purchased this mask to wear while riding in a dusty indoor arena. It is very comfortable, lightweight and fits well. It seems to be pretty effective though probably nothing will keep out ALL the dust. My only complaint would be that my face sweats under it, so maybe not the best choice for athletic activities, but a very good product just the same.

I ordered this mask, to help me cope better with seasonal pine pollen allergies. It worked well for this purpose, and I also discovered it works nicely for smoke as well. We have a neighbor that loves to smoke meat - unfortunately it blows into our master bedroom window. The mask was comfortable to wear to bed.

Although they're pricey, Silk Comfort Masks can be rinsed out, dried and used again and again. If you think on a per use basis - well, they're not so pricey after all! The silk is light, cool and comfortable. Adjustable over the nose to keep dust etc from entering around the edges, the silk mask doesn't cause your glasses to fog up or your face to sweat beneath it. It does a wonderful job of filtering out dust and pollen. Silk Comfort Masks are so unobtrusive I sometimes forget that I have one on. I give them as Christmas and birthday presents and every recipient becomes a devoted user. If you have a problem breathing when exposed to sawdust, pet fur, dust, pollen etc. you should give one of these masks a try!
  Love It!
Reviewed by: Dogperson from Elizabethton, TN

I wanted a reusable mask that fit well. I was looking for one that could filter out the tiny particles of mold, dust, and pet dander. I wear it while cleaning the house and bathing my dogs, also sometimes outdoors. This mask is adjustable and fits my face almost like it was made for it. It is lightweight and breathable and doesn't make my face sweaty or my breathing difficult like some of the disposable types. Great value for the price. I would purchase this again.

Reviewed by: a nasal polyp sufferer from Florida

Fairly comfortable. I find that it still fogs up my glasses like any other mask I've worn, but I deal. The plastic clasp for lack of a better word for adjusting the elastic is rather cheap, and I had one break on me within a few days of use. Otherwise, a fairly good mask that is comfortable and reusable but a little pricy.

I really like this mask. I wore the charcoal filers and put the mask on, too, when I went to the casino in Wheeling, West Virginia. It's very smokey there and I've been sick for two weeks when I went without a mask. It's very nice looking and I felt like I was still approachable with it on. People did not hesitate to talk to me when I had it on.

I have been wearing the blue paper masks from Home Depot that smell like chemicals and decided to buy the silk comfort mask. It is great compared to the others. It stays in place the I do not have to keep my mouth open to keep the mask from riding up towards my eyes like the paper masks. The elastic ear pieces are adjustable and stay where you put them so you don't have to readjust them everytime you wear the mask. I am satisfied even if it is a bit pricey which is why I didn't buy it before now.

The masks I've always purchased at the pharmacy are quick but they're not comfortable and I find myself having to stop work to wipe my face and my glasses constantly. With the silk mask it's almost like wearing nothing. It's light, it's comfortable and my glasses don't fog up. I feel like I can breathe. It's rinses out and dries quickly. I'm very pleased with this mask. It has paid for itself in the first few uses.

After years of trying virtually every type of breathing mask, I saw the one advertised in your catalog. I didn't order one with my first Achoo order (new customer)because I thought it was too expensive.Then,with my second order a couple of months later, I bit the bullet and ordered. Wow! Am I glad I took the chance. At last, I can dust, sweep the back patio, and breathe rather easily in a comfortable mask. The price is a little steep, but when I consider all the "cheap failures" I've tried and discarded, it's worth it. Love my allergy mask!
  Didn't work for me...
Reviewed by: Trying Q-Mask from Columbus, OH

I purchased this mask because I've been experiencing an allergic reaction to tomato pollen in our garden. I wore the mask for about four hours when I tilled and removed the tomato plants in preparation for winter. The very next day, I could barely breathe again. With that in mind, it’s pretty clear that this mask didn’t work for my purposes. I can't say that I'd recommend it to anyone doing garden work, even though the manufacturer says it works for garden pollen. Also, it steamed up my glasses, which it’s not supposed to do. The elastic ear cords pinched my ears, so it wasn’t as comfortable as I would have expected a Silk “Comfort” Mask to be.

The silk comfort mask is the only mask that actually blocks allergens and lets me breathe.

I've been using paper masks of various sorts for protection mainly against dust. They all contain toxic odor, and the medical masks that fit comfortably behind the ears have a tendency to close off my nostrils when I inhale. I often use the masks longer than I should, because I hate the expense of going through them quickly. The silk mask is a one-time expense, launders easily, fits comfortably behind the ears, and holds its shape away from my nostrils. It's all I hoped for.

it is silky, light, and very conveninet because it folds up so small and can go anywhere. However, I remember before I bought it the other reviews said it doesn't get hot under there- but I sure thought it did- just thought you should know. I think this would happen with any mask that doesn't have a vent. I really like it and have been using a lot when I go outside during this horrible ragweed season. (I have severe hayfever and moderate asthma). It is much easier to take on and off than other masks too- like when I want to quick remove it when I go inside and feel funny in a mask- plus much less "mask-marks" on my face post use. Great!
