|With many face masks the common complaint is the clinical look and feel of the mask. With the new Vogmask, not only can you
filter out particle allergens and dust, you can look good while doing so! Vogmasks come in two styles of fabric. For those wanting
a more natural fabric, there are organic cotton Vogmasks. For those wanting a higher filtration mask, there is the non-woven microfiber
mask. Spandex ear straps stretch and pull the mask tight, while an internal aluminum nose clip allows you to tighten the
seal of the mask.
Excellent for particle allergens, the Vogmasks can remove pollen, dander, dust and other particles from the air you breathe. Each
mask is extremely lightweight and folds up easily to store in
your pocket or purse. The microfiber and organic masks are washable. They can
be washed in a washing machine, however, we recommend hand washing these masks. Because repeated washings
can degrade the inner filter material, we recommend that you wipe the mask with a disinfectant cloth to remove dust and
for light cleaning. Depending on the mask and your usage, these masks typically last from 3-5 months.
Fitting children and adults, one size fits most. Imported.
VogMask Face Masks
Allergy and asthma sufferers know that they can make a big difference in how they feel by wearing an allergy mask, but
there is still something of a stigma that some people feel while wearing masks in public.
What I like about the Vog Mask
As the newest set of masks in our offering, Vogmasks ditch the sterile, clinical feel, and use bright colors and
chic prints to provide more stylish appearance while offering effective particle filtration. (FYI, it's pronounced like
"fogmask," no long "o" sound... though with their trendy appearance, you're more than welcome to join us in pronouncing it "vogue-mask".)
Having tried several of these masks during allergy season, here is what I found.
The first thing I noticed with this mask was the size. It looked as if it was going to be too small
for my face, but I was surprised to find that upon putting it on, it fit well around my nose and mouth. Though
overall the size may seem to be a bit smaller than some other masks, it wears well and will fit some children
as well as most adults. Just keep in mind that though it may not cover your entire face, it fits well around your
nose and mouth. An advantage to the size though, is that because they are small, they fit in your pocket, purse or
just about anywhere.
The second thing you'll notice are the prints. Unlike traditionally sterile or clinical looking allergy masks,
the Vogmask comes in 6 styles of prints, so it's easy to find one that fit your personality.
For light filtration or for those who prefer a natural fabric, there are two styles of organic cotton Vogmasks. Each
offers two-ply filtration for light allergies and some particle protection. The organic cotton masks are certified
by the Control Union Certifications of the Netherlands.
For better filtration, opt for a non-woven microfiber Vogmask. These come in four different prints and offer three-ply
filtration. The non-woven microfiber masks have been independently tested to filter 99% of particles 3 microns and larger. So while they won't trap
some of the ultrafine particles, they do an excellent job in filtering out pollen, most types of dander and mold
spores. So as an allergy mask, its filtration is comparable to that of the Honeycomb Carbon mask.
The ear straps are spandex, so they stretch and keep the mask snug on your face. An aluminum nose piece is sewn into
the mask, and helps tighten the mask around your nose to prevent fogging up glasses. Because they're a fabric mask, you
won't have to worry about condensation build up like with some rubber masks or respirators.
Lastly, with the microfiber masks, you will likely get approximately 30-60 hours (depending on usage conditions). The organic cotton masks offer a slightly better
lifespan. These masks are hand washable. (After a few washings, you may notice the silk screen pattern
fading a bit, but the filtration is not effected.
What I did not like about the Vog Mask
Unlike many of our other masks, the Vogmask has no activated carbon or charcoal for odors. So if odor or chemical/vapor filtration
is a need, you may want to consider another mask.
Though the sizing allows them to fit almost everyone, if you are a big person or simply have a big head, these may end up being too small.
For most moderate to light allergy sufferers, the Vogmask is going to be a great solution to personal filtration. The stylish
patterns and ease of use, combined with effective particle filtration is a hit all round. The Vog masks are economical and can even act as a cold
weather mask during the winter months.
