Reviewed by: Chronic Asthmatic  from Northwest USA

I bought a white one of these years ago when I was living in a heavy smog location with severely limiting asthma. These things work like a dream for those of us who can't go outside during air quality alerts. The old style was a little more like stiff cotton, but these new ones are nice and silky and soft. I like the exterior much more than before. The white one was a little like a sore thumb in public places, since it goes out at a funny angle, and it's so... well... white. The beige blends much better and doesn't stick out quite as much. The blue one is less blue and more navy, but looks good with certain clothing. It looks more blue in the picture than it is in real life. I love these things. I own three and lots of filter refills because they are life savers.

Reviewed by: Chiquita L. from Atlanta, GA

I really like my honeycomb mask. I have multiple allergies and pollen hates me the most. I can't go outside at all in Georgia without getting sick sinus infections, headaches, shortness of breathe.... So, I use my mask when I do have to be outdoors temporarily. The mask isn't a miracle or cure, but I've found it to work better than any allergy medication I've tried in the last 15 years. I gave the mask 4 stars versus 5 because I've had to buy 3 in the last year. I bought the 2nd one because I lost the first one I truly love how light weight it is. But, I had to buy the third one because the 2nd one broke within a week of having it. The wire at the top of the nose snapped into from me adjusting it to fit my face. I should've informed Achoo Allergies but I just bought another one. Another problem is that I have MCS and the mask doesn't block out all perfumes or smoke. If it did conceal chemicals or fumes, it would be amazing! Finally people tend to stare less when I'm wearing this mask versus the general store bought kind. However, some people are still mean and have said I look like dark vador, a rhino, or planet of the apes when wearing my tan mask. More importantly though, using the mask has significantly reduced my sinus infections and I really enjoy it. It is now a necessity for me.
  Love the product!!!

After using this in the same room with a chain smoker I can say I'd recommend this to anyone. You can smell the smoke but it doesn't have the smoke itself pass through. My nose was completely raw to the point of nosebleeds because of helping my family member at home and I needed a mask. This is a life saver. I am so thankful that I found this mask. Pros: Comfortable to wear and adjust even WITH glasses. They don't fog up and trust me I've had medical masks fog up just make sure you where it properly. Cons: It gets your face a little warm after wearing it for a long period of time. *Let's be honest it's a Carbon mask. You'll have that anyway but I felt like I needed to have a con. I would definitely recommend this mask to anyone that needed one!

  Multiple Chemical Sensitivities & Mold Allergy
Reviewed by: I Love to Breathe from Jacksonville, FL

I have a chronic lung disease and developed multiple chemical sensitivities. The honeycomb mask w/carbon filter has enabled me to be in public and in crowds, otherwise I'd be confined. Fragrances & chemicals are irritants which cause my airway to swell. This mask helps tremendously but does not completely block out all irritants. I am also allergic to mold and the mask is great on high humid and rainy or damp days. Additionally, it is helpful in cold weather. I keep one with me at all times. This mask has been the most comfortable and worked best of any I have found thus far. I was stunned that the price almost doubled in six months, that hurt.

This mask blocks perfume effectively. I can walk into department stores or stay out in my yard when the neighbor is doing laundry with dryer sheets. I helps with traveling as well as other crowd situations. It even worked in the cat room at the Humane Society! It gets stuffy after a while, however, so it works best to extend your ability to tolerate disagreeable scents until you can get away from the source.
  Fabulous air filtration mask

I have many allergies indoor and out. Recently my ENT doctor recommended I use the Honeycomb Mask with Carbon Filter when I do yard work and gave me the Achoo Allergy online address. I have used this mask for work outdoors and recently while taking down walls in my house, enclosed in a room with sheet rock dust and saw dust flying every where. It was really put to the test and did a great job. I'm allergic to dust and this mask is fabulous! I highly recommend it.
  Great with one little flaw
Reviewed by: allergic girl from Washington State

This mask allows me to breathe and feel good after cleaning. It is comfortable and doesn't move around up into the eye area like other masks. The only flaw is that the mask itself has stitching down the center which caused irritation on my chin. This may be simply from friction the stitching goes right down the middle of the mask all the way from the nose to the chin, creating the fold in the mask, or it may be the stitching material. Either way, I am more hesitant to wear it now, so that means the $20 mask does not get used like it would if this problem did not exist.

I needed a mask for Beijing for Nov. 2013, so I bought this and 2 other filters. There were traces of black carbon particles on the white side of the filter that contacts your face. I found this to be the case for all 3 of the filters I bought. I can't imagine inhaling this carbon could be good for you. It also feels a bit too expensive for what you get--this is just my opinion. I would get something that is certified NIOSH-approved N95.

I am allergic to a particular tree and it makes it difficult to even breathe near it. Using this mask, I was able to cut my medications in half when around this tree. The mask is comfortable when you figure out how to wear it. As an eyeglass wearer at first I found it fogging up my glasses. But if you adjust the mask a bit lower on the bridge of your nose and squish the mask nose-bridge tight, glasses rarely fog. However, it is not a fashion statement. I don't know why the manufacturers squared off the tip of this mask at the nose, it would be better rounded. That's probably one of my only complaints.

I wear this mask at work and find it to be very comfortable. It fits well and even though I have it on for about eight hours it is still comfortable at the end of the day. The filter fits close to my face and seems to filter out the tiny particles that have been bothering me so much. My allergy symptoms have already improved after just a few days.

The mask functions as advertised. It has given me enormous freedom shopping and driving. However it is way too costly for what it is, the filters never last me more than two or three days and the mask itself seems to have shrunk a bit after two washings per instructions. It doesn't really cover the the filter well any more. When the relative humidity is very high it fogs my glasses no matter how I fit it. But most of the time I can wear my glasses with it.

I've tried a number of different masks in the 16 years I've been challenged with MCS. This one is the best - light, easy to breathe thru, no taint of coconut charcoal, and the around-the ears elastic is quicker to put on and doesn't interfere with my hair - yes, incredibly, even with MCS I still have some vanity left, LOL. I used it on a trip to visit my daughters last month - the filter still seems good after sunning, despite a major air-freshener exposure in a public bathroom I couldn't just walk out, as I was helping my 4-year old grandchild go potty, so I was in there for some time.

I recently purchased your honeycomb mask and replacement filters and am now on the road to recovery. For months, I've been suffering with severe allergy symptoms. Chronic sinus blockage, thick post nasal drip, constant throat clearing and difficulty getting a deep breath. Fortunately, I saw a video clip about your Honeycomb mask and thought it couldn't hurt to try. I couldn't be happier with the results. The carbon filter inside the mask, which can be replaced as needed, filters a great deal of mold spores, dust, pollens, smoke, fragrances, fumes and other allergens that I am allergic to. Starting with ragweed season last fall and a leaking bathtub which caused a mold issue, I became sensitive to all fragrances making it difficult to go out in public. I wore the mask 24 hours a day, even sleeping in it, for the first several weeks. My allergy symptoms are 80% better and I'm able to tolerate lighter fragrances again. I've been able to reduce the amount of time I wear the mask, but if I'm in a situation that brings on an attack such as being in a restaurant seated under the heat ducts and the heat goes on forcing dust and other allergens my way, or seated at a sporting event with a heavily perfumed fan next to me, I just put on my mask and can feel the symptoms subside. This mask is better than I could have ever imagined. For me, I feel like I'm in control again and not afraid to go out. This mask gave my immune system and body the rest it needed from the allergens to help me get back on track. Knowing what I'm allergic to and having the mask to wear when I can't avoid my allergens has given me back a normal life. Thank you for putting out a greeat product and I hope other allergy sufferers find it helpful too.

I needed a mask because of neighboring smoke pits and wood stoves in our neighborhood which made sleeping with my asthma difficult. This mask is perfect even for sleeping because it filters out small smoke microbes as well as pollen, dust, etc. But you can breathe through it easily and it's even washable. It has carbon for extra filtration but you can't taste or smell it. I spent money on high tech masks at Home Depot but couldn't breathe well in them and I looked like an alien. This is shaped well to the face, is very comfortable and is my go-to mask for everything now.

This mask did not fit my face. The honeycomb material seemed stiff and uncomfortable. The pictures gave me the impression it was a very soft material so I was disappointed when I received it.

Faced with 2 airplane flights, a stay in an unfamiliar hotel, travel on public transportation in a major city and a large seminar I needed to feel safe about the trip. The mask screened out all but the most extreme perfume exposure. It is challenging to wear when the environment is very warm or stuffy and I am slightly claustrophobic with a mask over my nose and mouth but I am getting accustomed to it and was able to make the trip only, I believe, because I had the protection of the mask. It was not 100% effective where people were extreme in their use of fragrance and chemicals but I was able to function in most situations where normally I would have to leave or not even attempt to participate such as an airplane flight. I now carry the mask in my purse at all times and it gives me a feeling of safety and I don't feel as trapped in my life.

Over the past several years I have become increasingly sensitive to odors given off by perfumes, flowers, fuel, paint, adhesives, vinyl, ink, etc. Most people love the smell of a new car. I on the other hand would do what I could to dissipate the odor as quickly as possible. It gave me headaches, nausea, a feeling of being listless. Recently our church built a new sanctuary and I was quite concerned about the offgasses that would be evident in the new structure. Sure enough, when we had a walkthru of the new sanctuary a few weeks before having our first services there, I immediately started having trouble with my breathing. I was at a loss. No way did I want to start attending another church. I love the people there and the pastors that we have are truly a "Gift from God". I WAS NOT READY TO GIVE THAT UP! That's when I got on the internet and did some research. It wasn't long before I was ordering a mask to wear to our first service on Easter Sunday. It ended up being a joyous occassion in more than the biblical sense. I knew the minute that I walked in that we would be able to stay and enjoy the entire service. I could not detect even the slightest odor. It took a minute to get the nose area closed off so that I did not steam up my glasses, but other than that, I was home free. I will be ordering more masks to keep in different places, such as one for work outside, one in our motor home, one at my place of employment. I can't begin to tell you how much this mask has and will continue to change my life. At last I am free to do so many things that I have not been able to do for years. Thank you again.

I was really worried about traveling to China recently considering the pollution, cigarette smoke, mold and other chemical exposures. I have asthma that is triggered by any one of those exposures.

Also, one night I stayed in a place that had lots of mold. I slept in my mask and woke up breathing....which would not have happened previously Amazing!! I will say that the reason I didn't give it 5 stars is b/c it doesn't do very well at filtering out perfumes/colognes and it only worked moderately well for cigarette smoke. It did extremely well for pollution, mold and well enough on the others to keep me breathing!

I have mild chemical sensitivities and this mask worked very well for me while traveling and having to deal with public restroom deodorizers. It also helped when driving through very polluted cities.

The mask is lightweight and easily slips over the ears. It cannot, however, be hung around the neck unless one attaches a "leash", so it is not easy to take on and off without misplacing it. Since people in public places respond negatively to the mask, often with fear, I decorated mine. My local fabric store has open-stock of trimmings, making them already out-gassed. I selected a pretty pink trim with shiny beads and sewed it along the top edge. People, especially children, respond to it much better.

I clean a huge, beautiful house two times per week. The owner is wonderful and allows me and my co-worker to use "green" chemicals, but wouldn't you know it, some of those chemicals are still pretty harsh! In addition, we use some chemicals that are regular strength as we haven't been able to find "green" ones that work as well. I had been using a dust mask that my husband bought me, but the strap around the whole head would slip down and it didn't really eliminate all the odors. Needless to say I stopped wearing the uncomfortable dust mask. After about 3 weeks I noticed that as I worked around all the sprays and fumes my allergic response would kick in big time! It was overwhelming. I was constantly sneezing, blowing my nose and even coughing. I would go home sick and hope that I could sleep it off before the next cleaning day. I decided it was time for a new mask - one that would be comfortable and hopefully do the job! That was when I found the Honeycomb Mask online. Since then it has been amazing!!! No more sneezing, coughing and runny nose when I'm around those chemicals! It has been an absolutely "God-send" and I am NOT kidding! My only complaint has nothing to do with the mask and everything to do with my two kittens/cats. They love it too!!! They love it so much that they went to the trouble of pulling it out of my purse and chewing both the ear straps in half! They just love chewing on elastic and boy did they chew, chew, chew! Agh!!! They don't know what they're doing to me! Sheesh! So either I will be fixing it with a needle and thread or I will be buying a new one. Either way the charcoal filter works wonders. I can barely smell any of those chemicals and I am finally and completely out of that awful cycling pattern of 'get sick,''sleep it off' and 'get sick again.' Thank you so much for helping my body to get stronger while allowing me to maintain my income!
  great mask

I am a nurse with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I am exposed to many different toxins and chemicals each day at work, so a good filtration mask is essential. The Honeycomb mask really does help. When I feel sick from the smells I just put it on and I immediately smell less of the fumes. It is a lightweight and comfortable mask. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it doesn't completely keep smells out, but it is a great help.

This product worked somewhat but not quite what I had expected.
  What a difference!

In the middle of having my reasonable accommodations request by my condominium complex rejected, the cigarette smoke that is pouring in my unit from the neighbors has been unbearable to me as an Asthmatic and made me very, very sick, as I am allergic to the smoke. Prior to this, my Asthma was non-existent the past 4 years. Now, areas of my home are uninhabitable, but THIS MASK HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE TO LIVE INSIDE SOME AREAS OF MY HOME, for now, at least until a more reasonable solution can be found that respects my civil rights. Before my doctor recommended the mask, I was in severe respiratory distress with both Asthma and Chostochondritis very painful inflammation of all chest joints, and I was spending lots of time in front of my home sitting in my car and reading, often until 3 am, just to be able to breathe and avoid the air in my home, filled with the noxious cigarette smoke of my neighbors. Thanks to the mask, I'm back inside, and the Asthma attacks have gone down. Getting some degree of relief from and protection from the noxious cigarette fumes has been indispensable to me. Thank you Achoo Allergy - I'm re-ordering the filters today! Thank you for filling a desperate need to be able to breathe the now very polluted air in my own home.

Once I started wearing this mask I felt as if I could freely move around my world again. There is a significant design flaw and that is the adjustable elastic attachment is very flimsy and needs to be handled too gently in my opinion.
  I'm thrilled!

Thank goodness for your product. I have suffered allergies for decades yet this year they seemed to increase ten fold! If it hadn't been for your product, I would still be housebound, and suffering terrible allergy attacks in the night time. I now wear the mask when outside, while working, and in order to sleep undisturbed. It has given me a new lease on life, and the ability to carry on with my love of gardening! Thank you.
  Works great at first

When I first bought this mask it worked great. My constant allergy attacks stopped immediately. The problem is the mask is always slipping down on my nose from talking, etc. I'm always pushing it back up to get it to seal correctly. The area that seals around the nose is just a plastic embeded wire that starts to get week after about 2 weeks of pushing the mask back up and readjusting it around the bridge of the nose. I have seen better built allergy mask that I would consider buying but, they don't offer the carbon filter. I've tried other masks that are for pollen but they didn't help. What ever I'm allergic too is only removed with a carbon filter. So my buying advice is if you've got the same allergy problem I've got, this seams to be the only choice for now.

I am unable to go into many shops with my wife due to the huge amount of perfumed candles etc on display-I tried wearing this mask and it cut out 90% of the smells that usually bother me. I bought this mask to wear while traveling when often I am unable to change my location in an airplane,crowded public area etc.

The comfort of the mask was great - I purchased the mask thinking that since it was washable I would not have an allergic reaction to it - however I could not tolerate the carbon filters.
